  1. I think we can get a ‘private’ sailing in and out of Geiranger from Alesund, a stop in Itinerary B. So I’m not sure Geiranger automatically wins in this case.
  2. Just thinking out loud here. Technically, if I wanted to do both Geiranger and Flam, I could get to Geiranger via the port stop in Alesund in Itinerary B, but there is little chance of getting to Flam from any of the Itinerary A ports. Thus, Itinerary B wins out, if Flam and Geiranger are priorities (I still need to do some more research to determine if this is true).
  3. Not yet. Itinerary A will replace our June 6 itinerary and still leave on June 6, 2021.
  4. Thank you. Could Itinerary B possibly make up ground if we plan a day trip to Geiranger for our day in Alesund?
  5. I tend to prefer 7-10 days for cruises in Europe, as it allows about a week for land touring. Many in our group are still of working age, so a 14-15 day trip is about all we can handle. 20 days perhaps, someday, but doubtful. For this departure out of Amsterdam, I'm considering spending some time in Belgium pre-cruise and Amsterdam/Holland post-cruise. I assume what you're getting at is a 14 day itinerary that goes farther up to the Arctic Circle? I think that sounds amazing, but many of those itineraries seem to skip some of the fjord stops like Flam and Geiranger. Is that a deal breaker?
  6. Hello, fellow HAL enthusiasts! I posted this on the Northern Europe Board but haven't had much response. After our Norway itinerary was cancelled for next year, I am scrambling to consider other options. Please compare and critique these two itineraries. A) 7 Nights Amsterdam Eidfjord Molde Geiranger Bergen Amsterdam B) 8 Nights Amsterdam Flam Alesund Skjolden Olden Bergen Amsterdam In your opinion, which one wins? Is Geiranger that much of a must-see that it automatically wins out over Itinerary B? Thanks!
  7. Thanks for the reply! I was unable to delete the old topic. And they do ask different questions.

  9. Due to a recent cancellation of our cruise, I am trying to choose from remaining itineraries. How would you rank (1 being the best), the ports of Alesund, Flam, and Molde? Thanks!
  10. I already posted this in another thread, but our 9-night to Norway on the Nieuw Stat in June (Amsterdam to Copenhagen) was changed to a rather bland 7-night R/T Amsterdam cruise. All 36 of us will likely cancel and look elsewhere for a vacation. Poor move, HAL
  11. Ugh, not fun. Glad they’re trying to accommodate passengers on the recently sold ships. But in the process, it seems they are losing other passengers. I guess you can’t please everyone all the time. ☹️
  12. I totally agree. They took something exciting and unique and made it incredibly routine. Bleh. I also would have preferred a date change over an itinerary change.
  13. I’m sorry. I feel your pain. I’ve spent so many hours on this cruise, calling HAL dozens of times and perfectly aligning two sets of 9-adjacent cabins (not an easy thing to do for a cruise departing in less than a year!).
  14. I’m so sorry for your loss, as well. Do me a favor and make sure to call the Seattle office number listed in the email and voice your displeasure. I know it won’t do a bit of good, but I think it’s still worth it to let them know.
