  1. We have been on R/T Seattle cruises that were unable to dock in Victoria due to weather. Officials came out to the ship and signed off paperwork. We were told that when safety was in question this was allowed. Wondering if this could be a temporary SOP as safety and health is definitely risked now.
  2. I would thing that Seabourn would be more likely with the small ships
  3. We have sailed in deck 5 aft suites on Oosterdam several times with no vibration.
  4. I fully agree. Another attempt from the previous administration to let people buy suite and/or 4-5 star benefits. At some point HAL needs to look at their competition (Celebrity, etc) and decide if they want to be in the suite/deluxe market.
  5. He may be working. Still security needs on the ships
  6. I'm wondering if the 2 ships sold but not delivered to CMV yet were being taken back by CCL. If so, they could be candidates. Pacific Aria is sitting with other CCL ships now
  7. Interesting that Pacific Aria (former Ryndam) is there with the CCL ships. Maybe she wants to come home after almost being a CMV ship 🙂
  8. Appears Oosterdam is heading through the Canal. Wondering what her destination is as no HAL ships moored in Caribbean.
  9. Very sad the Pacific Princess is as loved by Princess people as Prinsendam was to HAL passengers
  10. This was posted on Facebook this morning- really touched my heart.
  11. I know- I can dream though? Those were such great days- miss them a lot.
  12. Could it be that the Van der Vorm family bought them to start a new line? The do still own the HAL name on their businesses. They made billions selling their eyewear company to Luxoticca. 🙂
  13. Saw a picture of Aegean Majesty- looked like name was quickly stensiled over Veendam. Wondering if the name is temporary Maasdam moved to Piraeus and supposedly is being handed over to new owners (still unknown). Makes me wonder if venture capital bought the ships on spec.
  14. I'm wondering if a Venture Capital group bought the ships and is marketing them for long term lease. If so maybe CCL should have looked in the same direction as they did with Thompson with former Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam.
  15. Adds to the mystery and confusion. Why Bermuda?
