Post photos of your favorite HAL ships and where you went


Recommended Posts

@scubacruiserx2 hope your upcoming TA goes as planned. We were supposed to be heading south for a week in Key West at about the same time as your sailing. I’m sad to say that trip is not happening this year. We’re going to try again next year. Hopefully, we will be able to make it happen, as we have been wanting to get there for quite a while.  🤞🏻 
 

Koningsdam docked at Amber Cove.

We hope to leave on the Veendam in 27 days and visit Cork on May 12th .

I wish you well!

If (and it is a big 'if') you do arrive to Cork please note that you are listed for docking in Ringaskiddy and not Cobh.  Ringaskiddy is a deep water berth in a commercial port used by freighters, ferries and container ships and has absolutely horrible connections to anywhere.  Really suggest ship excursion or pre arranged private excursion with confirmation that the tour will be from Ringaskiddy.

Thanks for your response and information . We will let our guide know . Would that port be closer to the Ring of Kerry which is where we were planning to go ?

It is marginally closer, but has better road access to travel towards Ring of Kerry.

Hi Nancy , here's hoping  . It kinda feels like hurricane season . We'll pray for the best , prepare for the worse and carry on . That's a cute little turtle .

This was only our 3rd cruise on HAL and our first trip to Alaska and it was a spur of the moment decision . We had said goodbye to the Eurodam as it left our closest cruise port in Ft. Lauderdale headed to Alaska .
