Thank you for this explanation. This will make my husband a happy camper as we have decided our planned December Noordam trip will be in a Neptune suite for a nice change of pace and more space.

Small world indeed!! I am only an hour north of Charleston on a lovely island. The Low COuntry is a wonderful place to live and probably prepared you for that heat Oahucruiser mentioned in...

And I, here in South Carolina, did the same, waving, and snapping webcam "grabs" for my friend who is onboard. And sighing as I remember making that sail under the bridge both in daylight and at...

Thanks for this link....very sorry to see it....she still looked like a proper ship but definitely getting a tad old for cruising I guess.

We sailed on her in the early '80s when she was Sunward...

Salacia....I couldn't agree more! Affording room service is the easy part....waiting for them to finally get there is another story! Within 4 minutes of getting out of bed I can have hot water and...

Thanks for that link Salacia.....very interesting reading and seems to indicate that change is coming and it might well not be what those who in the past have had a great loyalty to the old Cunard...

How very true....Cunard will blow with whatever wind brings it the most profit. However I fail to see where all the profit goes when these ridiculous low offers keep dropping in my inbox. So either...

And well said to you too Spobird. This self righteous attitude that is so prevalent these days is so sad.

It reminds me of bullying kids on a playground who would only have things their way and...

Thank you Summergee.....you are one of the very few fair minded people around it seems.

There should of course be give and take in life in all things, not just the smoking issue. However in...

Ah, but Mary, there will still be those who are not satisfied with that.:rolleyes:

There was a time when a ban on balcony smoking would have distressed me a lot. It no longer affects me...

And that's just what we've done Brigittetom.....only not a lake house. We bought a delightful summer house on Cape Cod where the ocean is everywhere we go within minutes or a short drive at best. ...

Hi Dorchester...good to "see" you again. In line with what you have said above, I find this bit of information interesting. It does not appear the good people of Geiranger do not want more cruise...

Thanks oysterdam....good head's up on booking early for this. Will most likely make the final decision while on our Noordam cruise with our traveling friends. They have done 2 Uniworld cruises and...

Interesting observations from those looking to leave HAL for greener pastures, yet it seems most cruise lines are having to make cutbacks in many areas. SO unless one is willing to go very upscale,...

Indeed they do and while not a "hidden treasure" since it's right out there to see, it is well worth the time to just wander about admiring and enjoying the extensive collection on Noordam. I'm...
