Today in Curaçao we rode the Choo Choo train before walking around the colorful town.  There was a civil protest today but it didn't affect us other than we couldn't visit the fort.  16F6583C-0586-4F81-877C-5F1A2228C24A.jpeg.651f1e7537dfa28e31d0d5d40909d1b0.jpeg

We enjoyed Dushi (pleasant) time.

Is Pocket Earth Pro an Iphone App?   I didn't find it on the Android play store

It's only an iPhone app at this point.  We are really liking it.

We met friends and once again toured all over Aruba and did some snorkeling at Catalina Beach.  Enjoyed stewed goat for lunch. And HAL put on a terrific New Year's Eve party and countdown throughout the music walk on deck 5 plus the World Stage.  The Captain and his wife rang the bell chiming the last 10 seconds of the decade.

Happy New Year Tim and Angela and all guests and crew on the Volendam!  Safe travels!

Rain and mainly the wind caused cancellation of many New Year's Eve fireworks displays in Seattle and Vancouver.  

Lovely sunny and warm New Year's Day; at least in Vancouver,  for the Polar Bear swim, etc:)

Happy New Year from Jill and Joe. We loved the New Year's party on the Westerdam 3 years ago.

Question

 

Is the daily 8 page US Today/New York Times Digest still available in paper format on the Volendam or is it only on the Navigator App?

The paper USA Today (as well as international editions) are widely available.  The NYTimes is available on the APP.

Thanks - I was reading that HAL might be doing away with the print version.  We board the Volendam on Sunday for the Grand South America

I can't predict the future, but the print edition is very popular on the ship (but I rarely have read it as I have access to all the regular news sources.

 

Have a great cruise.  The Volendam is in terrific shape.

The lemon tree is still very much alive. Today while on a HAL excursion returning from a rafting excursion on the Martha Brae River, there was a loud bang underneath me, and the left side inside tire blew.  The driver changed it in under 1/2 hour with the help of two fellows in a passing dump truck.

Does anyone still want to tour with me?

With your experiences the last few weeks I am glad that you are not continuing on the Volendam with us and doing the Grand South America - we might hit an iceberg. 🤣😀

Tim, have you ever calculated your number of incidents per days travelled?  
Given the number of days on the high seas odds may not be as bad as some people think!

We would risk cruising with you guys again:)
