Awww, lovely! Happy Mother's Day!

How interesting that you have a speaker talking about volcanoes--very timely!

There's a nice walking/jogging track up on the top deck. Lots of fresh air. She can walk on the "promenade" deck, too, but it's narrower than other HAL promenades and has lots of turns. And the gym...

I haven't read any Q&As for other lines. Are they usually more responsive than Angus was? This one reminded me of the phone intercept that says "You are 96th in the queue. Please remain on the line...

I agree with all of this. Don't confront a rude person (or the parent of a misbehaving child). Whatever you saw happen to the waiter or other staff is going to be worse when it's turned on you.

Have you ever noticed that the same few seats are "taken" on almost every flight you search, even when the flights have been open for booking a short time? They probably do it to make it look like...

It must be a huge savings in both dollars and environmental issues.

I don't know how it will work on HAL, but I've experienced the digital photo selection on QM2 and it works well. They do put...

I've seen someone in a harness like that once. Maybe HAL should get a bunch of those and have a "lap swim" hour.

And the crepes are OK? I tried them on Veendam several years ago, and they should have had "Goodyear" stamped on them.

K'dam has a bakery section of the buffet that turns out all kinds of fresh...

Thanks for the laugh!

What an old thread. I saw some names that haven't been here in a long time.

On our Alaska cruise the pool was not heavily used, even though the roof was closed and the water was fairly warm. But it was September and kids were back in school.

If you're a serious lap...

At least he varied the wording from one post to another, although they all pretty much the same thing. "Thank you for your comment/question. We'll think about it."

"I paid a lot of money for this cruise and I expect to be waited on hand and foot!" I've seen it, and the finger-snap attitude that comes with it.

We did the first circumnavigation of Australia on...

The funnel is already shorter than Stephen Payne, her designer, wanted it to be. He says the height of QM2 is less than he wanted because we built the Verazanno Narrows Bridge too low.

Have you sailed with HAL? I've watched the level of dress slide down the sartorial slope on HAL.

My BIL was in the Navy, and when he retired, one of the first things he wanted to do was take a cruise. He wanted to go on a ship and NOT have to work!

I understand how you feel about all you've...

I hadn't noticed that you don't see your cabin number when you check your booking. I always choose my cabin, so it isn't something I have to look for. You're right, you have to go to manage my...

Talk to someone at your sister line, Holland America. They've got an app that does a lot of what Kynance is suggesting.

We've decided to go DIY in Cobh. Unless steep walks are an issue, it's a walkable town.

Tripadvisor and my guidebook (Fodor) say the best thing to see in Cobh is the Heritage Center (Queenstown...
Yes, that's the one. I was hoping to have an easy...
Yes, that's the one. I was hoping to have an easy way up to the cathedral, but they said it isn't running. If you're OK with slopes (some steep) Cobh is very walkable.

Not Guinness, have Murphy's! It's brewed in Cork. We always check out the local brews.

We're going to go DIY. Tourism is largely related to Titanic and other maritime matters. There's a Heritage museum with exhibits about Irish emigration, Titanic, and Lusitania. Cork/Cobh was...

I noticed on K'dam that tables seemed to have more space around them. We asked for a 2-top and were by ourselves at a 4-top. That worked out to be good because we could sit at adjacent sides, rather...

And they're only looking at this now? Tide timing is predictable, they could have figured this out sooner. I just looked online. Low tide at Avonmouth is 8:21 AM and 8:55 PM, close to the scheduled...
