"Live from" ms Volendam to Alaska! My First HAL Experience

Recommended Posts

Just saying guys, there is a strong glimmer of hope regarding another cruise for me in the near, yet distant future ;) and of course I'll be sharing it with you guys! Look out for a trip report that is somewhere along the lines of "Live from" _____ with lovely_serenity or something ^^. It'll be another "1st _____ Experience as well.

 

Europe? I am rooting for you!

You'll need lot of the fancy ones for the QE, Sarah, but I'm sure you will enjoy Cunard!

You are so very fortunate! I cannot wait for your "live from" report on the newest addition to your signature. Be sure to hop on over to the Holland board and let us know that you are doing another thread.

 

Enjoy and have a wonderful time. ...especially shopping for those fancy new outfits. ;)

Yes, I am so very fortunate! (: I'm very lucky to get the opportunity to go to so many wonderful vacations, and I have nobody else asides from my parents to thank ^^~

 

I am looking forward to writing my next "live from", probably even more than you are LOL. But very nice to know that others will look forward to it as well. :) I will make sure that I post a new thread in the HAL area telling all of the nice people who read my trip report that I will be doing another one! ^^

 

I aurely will! Thanks! && definitely! Haha :D

Hey, Sarah! Glad to see you are going strong. I saw a post on another thread and almost shouted out. I'm still posting links to your cocktail menu. That is greatly appreciated for a long time.

 

Looking forward to your Europe report, though I'm biased toward France, as a favorite place to visit! I hear Santorino is beautiful, though.

Hey LVSue! :)

 

Indeed, very excitedly might I add ^^. What post did you see? && you totally should have shouted out haha. That's awesome of you to do! I actually am very happy when I hear that others are posting links to my report. :D

 

I have been to Pris a couple of years ago, but that's pretty much it LOL. My parents went around Europe without us a couple of times. Made me very jealous. -_-

Yeah, totally!

 

I actually have been to Paris for a week when I was like, 13 years old. But that's it ^^". Ever since then, I've been itching to go back to Europe. Finally the time has come (:

 

Good to hear! :) I will post it (a link) here when the time comes!

Exactly! Similar to that idea, I will indeed be posting it on Cruise Critic Message Boards, just, in the Cunard area. And I'll be sad if my friends over here in the HAL area doesn't see it! :(

Sounds wonderful.

We will be away for a while in November but I'll look for your review when we get home on the Cunard board.

It has been years since we sailed on Cunard.
