  1. chengkp75, thank you so much for "weighing in". I always read your explanations and have great respect for your knowledge.
  2. Well...….…..OK...……...I had not seen this subject on the HAL board. So, I did a "search" and found lots on the RC board. Interesting "stuff"
  3. I have been trying to do some research regarding ventilation on cruise ships. I found an article that compared airplanes to ships which I found very interesting. The article stated the closeness of passengers, germs on surfaces, coughing, sneezing etc. is an issue on an airplane. However, the air in the ventilation system is very clean. It is a mixture of recirculated and fresh air which passes through a HEPA filter. HEPA filters are used in hospitals and filter out viruses. Not so with the ventilation system on cruise ships. The filters used on the ships DO NOT filter out viruses! The ventilation system is recirculating air with neighboring cabins. It is believed this is why, even after being quarantined to your cabin, you are exposed to viruses. You are breathing contaminated air! I am hoping someone with a knowledge of the ventilation systems on ships can tell us how it can be what can be done and how it might be improved.
  4. Well, I was feeling pretty good having discovered the most recent cancelation policies announced by HAL (Bookings & Cancellations/Book with Confidence) would allow me to cancel 48 hours ahead of my April 19th cruise and still receive FCC. However, one of my fellow passengers is telling me that only applies to new bookings. We who booked and paid by final payment date (Jan) must adhere to the March 31st deadline to receive FCC.
  5. Hey Roger, Wrote you a few weeks ago hoping you would be able to obtain a map of the dining room. I have the Koningsdam but rumor has it that it is not the same. Hope you are successful and able to post the map. Have a great cruise! Sherry
  6. As it is different from the Koningsdam, can anyone supply the dining room layout for the Nieuw Statendam?
  7. Loved my vista Suite! Yes a little bigger...…..yes extra mariner points. I loved the layout....bed next to sliding door instead of couch. I sit up late and read when husband has gone to bed. There was a partial wall between couch and bed. I felt like the sitting area was its own separate space.
  8. For me...…..quiet please! If I choose music, I will bring my own and "plug in". Don't always like other peoples choices and usually the piped in music is much to loud!
  9. Wow! Can't believe this FlightEase "glitch" is still occurring ! I am one of the folks this happened to last Fall. I had my flight booked but as I have a choice of 2 airports, I decided to compare times and flights from both airports. At no time were there any warnings or indications that I was canceling my booked flight. I was only aware when I went to the Delta website to pick my seats and no longer saw my reservation. I was able to rebook but at a higher price. I will say, when I notified HAL what happened, I received an apology and an OBC that made up the difference in the airline fare. Still, the whole thing was very stressful and should not happen.
