  1. It’s been great! Anything is better than freeze your face off cold.
  2. it's likely that the trolls moved on and forgotten about it.
  3. Here's a fun bit of news one of the mama dogs at Husky Homestead had two pups recently, the names are Holland and Princess.
  4. Perspective REALLY matters, it's really hard to judge on a video. The folks vilifying HAL aren't Navigators on the Bridge team or they don't have a clue or an understanding what happens on a Bridge on a daily basis. The Eurodam in the video had less of a wake than the Zaandam during the cruise in at Glacier Bay when we picked up the Pilot, the rangers, and someone else (the name of the tribe is escaping me)
  5. I've been to Haines on the Zaandam a few years ago, it is a tiny town. I did a kayaking excursion, and as we were suiting up on a platform two bears ambled past where the kayaks were docked. I did walk around town, before my excursion there's a place that sells cinnamon rolls that are HUGE. If one is up to it my kayaking adventure was fun and one that I would do again.
  6. Did you find the great napping chairs? I found them by accident after kayaking in Haines, Ak. Did you alert guest services about the awful fumes? I’m so sorry
  7. It’s a carnival treat traditionally doused in powder sugar or ice cream with some kind of sauce like strawberry or chocolate. The batter is slightly thinner than pancake and poured through a funnel
  8. It’s an iFail! Oh smart phones aren’t always smart.
  9. If I recall there’s a better hair dryer in the desk area. I remember a lot of those ‘dead ends’. My mom adored one of the assistant stewards when we were on the Zaandam.
  10. It should be getting warmer today, I saw a lady wearing a winter coat yesterday.
  11. It took me 10 minutes to speed read the thread. I've been itching to do the Canada/New England cruise again. Enjoy your trip!
