  1. We have stayed at the Executive Hotel Le Soleil. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice.
  2. Are you talking about Pinnacle? I asked this question a few months ago. The information I got was, when part of a package, you will be assigned a dining time. A confirmation card will be in your cabin.
  3. I will post when we get back. Hope I can post something before you leave. We are continuing on to Croatia after The Greek Odyssey cruise and won't return to the U.S. until mid-June.
  4. Thank for all the info. We are on this cruise in May.
  5. I have Verizon and have used their Travel Pass. It is usually $10/day. You are only charged if you use it and it is good for 24 hours. So if you text or call only 1 day during your trip you get charged $10. Verizon sends you messages to keep you informed, so no surprise. I just used the Verizon app on my phone to sign up. You only have to signup once. Now every time I cross the border into Canada or any other country, I get a message about Travel Pass.
  6. Thanks everyone. It is all way more confusing than it has to be. A simple list of what's included would be fine. A list of what's not included and frequently asked questions.
  7. Ours does not include the Signature Beverage Package. So I was not sure what beverages were included.
  8. I understand that Explore 4 no longer includes hard liquor? Just wine? Not really clear on what beverages were included.
  9. Good question. I wanted to know if VPN would work, too.
  10. How does it work when you have Pinnacle Grill for two with the Explore 4?
  11. I am a little confused on what Explore 4 includes. Onboard Credit, Pinnacle Grill What else? Does it include internet? sodas/bottled water? I was told that it does include internet and sodas/bottled water, but I don't see that officially posted on Holland Website.
  12. Can you make reservations online before the cruise? And, if you can book online, when does that become available online to book? (How far in advance of cruise)
  13. Thanks to everyone for all your responses!
  14. It depends on how many credits you buy. I believe that to send a postcard, it costs 1 credit. The choices for buying credits are: Premium (which is a monthly charge). It comes with perks, but I don't send enough to sign up for that. 40 credits = $2.00 per credit. 20 credits = $2.25 per credit. 10 credits = $2.50 per credit. It used to cost less. It still is a nice convenience when traveling. You can also order cards, pictures in frames etc. which cost more.
  15. Re: Touch Note app, I just bought a few credits to try it out and loved it. I won't do the monthly charge either. I'll just add a few more credits before our cruise.
  16. I have been on two Hawaii cruises. The weather was good for both. On the spring cruise there was heavy rain in Hilo. I preferred the weather in the fall..
  17. On the insurance question. Usually if your insurance is through the cruise company, it will cover you for your cruise, air if booked through cruise company and excursions through cruise company. If you take a outside vendor tour or fall down when wandering around town on your own, it usually isn't covered. You have to read the fine print.
  18. If we arrive 3 days prior to the cruise and leave 2 days after the cruise, I am assuming that HAL transfer don't apply. Am I correct?
  19. I'm in my 60's. The MMR vaccine wasn't available. I had the measles. They test immunity of women when you get pregnant and I had immunity. It would be so difficult for most adults to come up with any verification of vaccines.
  20. I haven't done hotels yet. We are doing 3 nights prior in Rome and 2 nights post in Venice and then flying to Dubrovnik. Then we are doing a small ship cruise of Croatia on a ship that has only 18 cabins! So glad it will not be as "formal". We are taking carry-on only. Makes it easier to not have to bring suits and heels etc.
  21. All the Alaska Airlines flights I have been on use 1 prong.
  22. Thanks everyone. Yes! I think we will be tired 10 ports in 11 days! We will have to pace ourselves. We end up in Venice and are staying in a hotel for 2 nights. From there we fly to Dubrovnik for another 12 day cruise and land tour on a small ship. I am looking forward to that. The ship has just 18 cabins. If we don't pace ourselves, we will not make it to the end!
  23. My grandkids loved getting a postcard each, addressed to them. They looked forward to them.
