HAL Rotterdam Med Cruise Aug 30/04

Recommended Posts

Sorry we did not meet CC'ers on the cruise. Sorry, have lost your names. I understand many of you had airline problems getting to Athens to make the 8:00 PM meeting in the Crow's Nest. I tried and even had the Cruise guide(s) on shore excursions mention it on the buses. Where were you? By the way, I was the person who found Mr. Rotterdam. We really enjoyed the cruise - now up to 150+ days with HAL. Glad we did not continue from Harwich to New York - heavy, boisterous seas. Not nice. I experienced this as a 6 - 12 year old in 1932 to 1939 in the North Atlantic. No stabilizers and much smaller ships - sick, sick for days. Too bad for the 350+ passengers who continued on from Harwich. Will have to keep an eye on the remaining days of this trip. Check www.sailwx.info for ship locations and hurricane data. Great for ocean and sea lovers.

Welcome Back. Hope you enjoyed Rotterdam. She's a beautiful ship.

 

 

The site you linked is interesting but it doesn't list many ships. I clicked 'cruiseships' and some came up but only a small number of the huge number we know exist. It didn't show Zuiderdam, for example or Maasdam which we know is doing Canada/New England. Rotterdam was shown.

It'll only show those whoose transponders are working and broadcasting (or are pointed at the right satellite!)
