Will have to report back about this issue and what happened and so forth after sailing, but that won't be until next March!:o

I'll just keep reading and researching until then.

Yep, me too. Our upcoming Konigsdam cruise had me concerned as well. It will be my first cruise with this issue (and it is NOT BY CHOICE!) Frustrating. I too can tolerate a mild amount but if I...

Yes, have been looking at Butrint as well. Looks interesting. Thanks for the tip on Knossos - would like to go out that way also.

Yes, we're on the same cruise and got the same e-mail. Probably a good decision on HAL's part, although I was so looking forward to seeing Ephesus. Gives me an excuse to try again I suppose.

You are welcome everyone, glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. Can't wait to sail with them all later this September!

Thx for that information. While I am disappointed regarding no longer being able to sit on the promenade, I am glad to hear you can still walk it at least. It is a part of my daily routine aboard...

Thank you!

One thing I forgot to mention. We had the most time efficient debarkation ever! We were off the ship in literally 15 minutes. That is not only a first for us, but I think its a...

They were throwing hoops like horseshoes or something, cheering each throw, or rolling a ball to a target, cheering with each roll, or yelling over a miss as the case may be. Stuff like that. There...

They mentioned that it was the only place they could do them, but I'm calling bull on that one. I counted at least 5 empty venues away from cabins walking around the ship they could easily have been...
Back From Zaandam Circle Hawaii
Finally have some time to sit back and report on our Zaandam Circle Hawaii trip that sailed from Vancouver on 9/20/15. First off, there were ups and downs as is usual for all cruises, but in total...

Thanks everyone for the helpful information! I may have to invest in this particular card. :)
Soda Card Question
I am not much for sodas per se....but I do enjoy sparkling water, i.e., club soda, etc.

Does anyone know if the $25 Soda Fountain Value Card would include the sparkling waters such as Perrier? Or...

BINGO. That is the quote of the day right there.

I am absolutely convinced you are correct, and DH and I have been saying this for a while now.

As long as people buy formal night photos expect...

I'm with ya! I personally find my legs look horrendous without the cosmetic makeover I get with panty hose. And yeah, it is makeup for the legs. Just like most of us look better with makeup on the...

Thank you. It's been fun reliving the cruise putting the pages together. Almost done. I think I have another 5 to 10 pages to go.

Some of the things that I always notice:

1. The dark blue hull, reminds me of the old ocean liners of days gone by.

2. Fresh flowers.

3. Real towels (not paper) in the public rest rooms....

Thanks for keeping us all up to date on fleet locations. However, the information on the Noordam is incorrect - she is not in drydock. She sailed from Ft. Lauderdale, on Friday, February 8th, on a...

I think it would be lovely. The necklace needs something a bit basic and understated so that it stands out even more and that dress does the trick. Good find!!

If you're correct and other than the Lido buffet I'm going to have to pay extra for fine dining, that will be the death knell of cruising vacations for me. There will be no justifiable reason to...

Hi beaming!

I use facial wipes to remove makeup. You can even use baby wipes -- works just as well. I just place the amount I need (one per day in the evening) in a ziplock baggie and I'm good...
