  1. There is priority boarding but you get no priority going through customs and immigration - my guess is that’s what the HAL rep mentioned.
  2. This won’t work, unless they wait. Eidfjord is a WONDERFUL town to go on a long, meandering walk/hike.
  3. In late May we arrived at Canada Place around 10:15 and were onboard by 11:10. It was the easiest embarkation we have ever had.
  4. Ketchikan with five! Our Volendam cruise in May was in Ketchikan with 5 ships and it was a miserable experience.
  5. Rich, glad you had a great trip!
  6. There were no totes on Volendam in late May but I asked our steward the next to last night about them and that night two were on the bed after turndown.
  7. GE is the best travel invention since the airplane. But if you live near the Canadian border, Nexus is the best option. Cheaper and allows more expedited access.
  8. Cuba usually doesn’t stamp, they’ll have you a little card instead. It could jeopardize your next Global Entry or Nexus application though because America is now is uber petty.
  9. Just make sure they don’t stamp the passport. Idiotic CBP agents will cause you severe strife down the road if so.
  10. Yes. I just did a live thread from her, you can find it at We had A LOT of Aussues on board. Two I’ve travel agency groups had tours - one was Karen’s Tours or somesuch. They all did the Rocky Mountaineer prior to the cruise to see the Canadian Rockies. The ship was at least 65% Aussie.
  11. This is the reason I never recommend HOHO busses. You very often wait longer than you see things and ruin days. Sorry you had had this issue.
  12. $20m is a joke of a penalty. They should have been hot much harder - they were fined $40m previously and didn’t lean the lesson.
  13. Have a great trip! Those shrimp tots are pretty good - try them.
  14. NPR had a great story on overtourism this past week. Essentially as the Chinese and Indian middle class explodes and they get the opportunity to explore the world like the West has for the past century or whatever, it’ll get more and more crowded. And I’m glad because it means more humans are able to see remarkable things.
