  1. Can anyone advise if we can check our future cruise deposits without having to phone Holland America ?
  2. The itineraries of the Maasdam are great HOWEVER its a holiday and I agree we do not need to many lectures. Many go to the same places often and therefore lectures are of little interest to them. At least its good to see HA trying something different although I cannot see it lasting long.
  3. Unless one has mobility issues a Lanai room would be lower on my scale than an Ocean View and therefore we look at pricing and for our next cruise justified Vista Suite though if pricing had not been reasonable would have booked either Ocean view or Inside rather than Lanai. However would be interested to know the reasons that one uses to justify the price of a Lanai.
  4. Hi John, Interesting as to how/why they make these offers. If your not a 4 or 5 star they may need 2 cabins next door to each other and I would have phoned HA if there was no need for your cabins to be next to each other saying interested but at say $1,600.
  5. Good to hear that the CD joining Maasdam is excellent however must admit confused as to earlier comment that both CD and deputy CD report directly to newly created position of Production mgr. Any update on this appreciated
  6. That's a great positive for HA against my last cruise on Azamara.
  7. NO however Azamara on cruise this year had them on offer nightly 🙂
  8. NO however Azamara on cruise this year had them on offer nightly 🙂
  9. We normally would book based on itinerary on either HA, Azamara, Princess, Oceania or Celebrity. Must disagree with your comment in regards to Azamara refrigerator, staff agreed its just a cooler.
  10. Agree the itineraries are what pulls me back and also the crew.
  11. We are in full agreement with your comments. HA have advised that a Bridge Director will be on our 20 day cruise however I know some now book other cruise lines such as Oceania and Azamara to ensure they have a Bridge Director.
  12. Appreciate your comments maybe HA believe that this will set them apart from other Cruise Lines although it appears to be a cost saving measure. We would be happy with hearing about nature and culture in the morning or afternoons but its nice to relax in the evening with a decent show in the showroom therefore as others we have no choice but to look elsewhere when making our next booking.
  13. Many thanks for reply. Must admit sounds rather boring compared to the production shows.
