Hi

 

I am home I had a wonderful time. I have some notesPro's and cons. Most are minor. My notes are some where in my luggage.

 

No day of the week in elevators.

3 of 6 elevatos did not work but suddenely all worked as I was leaving.

ship was very clean. someone was always cleaning something.

 

New program is a waste of paper. Tells you NOTHING about a port. Want to go to beach you ask when you leave ship and told go right for about 10-20 minutes. As a solo Iwas not about to do t alone. It does tell you what happening on ship but other wise worthless on cheap paper. HAl has gone way cheap on these. I hated them.

 

NO signs on upper floors what deck to go t If you want to go ashore.

 

Food was outstanding except the night Iate at Pinaccle. I was a solo and was ignored while I watch staff fall all over them selfs at a table of two.Food was not good tastless.I did not complain. In main dinning room two of the couples each te there and one liked it.Others agreed with me.

 

he staff was outstanding dinning barroom.

 

Before I forget I have to thank Candy for a wonderful Meet and greet One note the captain was always around andwould speak to all.

 

More to follow

Hi

 

Zuiderdam is a nice ship. In my personal taste she is ok. I did not notice any wear and tear on her. The Capitian and staff were outstanding. I guess I love the Amsterdam more.

 

Another think I remember being disappointed the yumyum man had those mints that are wrapped in paper (red and white) no more litle minted he wraps in a napkin. Also I no ginger. I saw dates, two other things.

 

I really loved this cruise and had a wonderful time. But there were just a few things I noticed.

 

I never had a problem with the wine steward in dinning room. Food and service in MDR was excellent

 

Off to find my notes

Welcome Home Mary :) That is too bad about the Pinnacle Grill but I have learned over the years that it can be hit or miss. We use to have a rule of thumb that if the dining room was really good the Pinnacle was not going to be. That held true until a few years ago on the Westerdam when both were excellent. But you just never know :D

hi ok a little warning hot to do.

 

I had a cabin with a shower and a tub with those jets. I had never been in one before. So I took some of the shampoo and put it on my hand while water was running. I still did not understand who everything worked. Soon I had blubbles almost over flowing the tub. None did. I had to take a shower to get rid of the bubbles. I felt alwful as I could not get rid of bubbles in tub and had to go to dinner. The bubbles were gone when I returned. I did try cold water.

I'd be lost on a ship where the "day of the week" mats were not up to date!

This is funny. It sounds like something that I would do.

One time my brother in law put regular dish soap in the dish washer. Well, now I want to call him Bubbles!!
