  1. Excellent thread. Having sailed on HAL for over 37 years I agree with every post except I would like to add one more thing. The best thing for me is that HAL lowers it standards to allow someone named RedneckBob to board the boat.
  2. Ditto; let see I can get free Diet Cokes and bottled water on Oceania and I only pay $300 a day per person for a balcony while on HAL I pay for the drinks and pay $130 a day for a balcony. Economic 1 on 1! Say hello Walmart.
  3. Great to here. We were both very lucky!
  4. Could not said it better other than the thrill is gone. I find people want to talk about other things than cruising. I can't believe how people talk about so many personnel things hear, like medical conditions, don't like my job, and on and on. On our recent South Pacific cruise I set up some great tours and everyone was pleased. Have in the past tried to set up tours and was like crickets out there; more interested in not upsetting their dog while they are gone. Oh well.
  5. If you measure air miles port is just over a mile from airport but there are so many loop to loops 3 miles is about right. If you arrive on Dec 01, there are eight ships in port and it may take a little longer to get to airport.
  6. I felt crowded. Ships too small for number of passengers. Celebrity has same passenger load of several of their ships like the Equinox but ship has 25% more tonnage than HAL. Can really tell the difference in public areas.
  7. Did you see my Bass Pro Shop cap. Just call me Gator Bob, short for RNB
  8. And I thought that was reserved for me. Well, I be dogged!
  9. Your BS line is being too restrained. All HAL ships except the two new ones can go under the bridge. The Oosterdam was here two years ago. A dock will be built outside the Skyway some time this century.
  10. Ditto, but I think they got upset when I ate one pound of samples
  11. Just there a week ago with blue skies. Try the "Doughboy" at a local eatery. It was great!
  12. I live in the Tampa area and are very upset with HAL leaving after 25 years. They always had a great 14 day cruise. I have requested from Corporate several times Why? with no reason given.
  13. Ruby Princess. Forgot to mention that a few days before we had this great weather, locals said it rained, snowed, hailed and winds up to 60 mph for a week. Very lucky we were.
  14. As reported in a thread we were there last week, first and only ship in port, clear skies, in the mid 50's. I guess we were lucky
  15. Eye catching title. We were so early to Alaska that I opened a gift shop in Ketchacan on April 27th and the shop still had the last of season specials posted from when they closed on October 1, 2018 !
