  1. Just as a little beach erosion, nothing major. Will be ready for first shops in October.
  2. No issues at HMC from what I was told from a HAL senior employee. It was well south of Dorian thankfully. Abaca and Grand Bahana however, devastation.
  3. We don’t flush toilets if it’s just liquid usually anyway - water is too sacred to waste. Use the toilet as needed but flush when the system is back. This isn’t rocket science . It’s not too unusual. And it’s not a big deal at all,
  4. No tie necessary. He can not carry the jacket either. It’s not necessary.
  5. Doesn’t look promising. NHC is forecasting a 10-15’ storm surge for all of central and northern Bahamas.
  6. Veendam failed in 2012. We were embarking in NYC en route to Bermuda and delayed boarding for hours because they wouldn’t let her sail until some issues corrected. It was a terrible cruise, almost a mutiny, and I’ll never sail her again.
  7. If arrive around 10:30 - we did in May. Was onboard in 35 minutes. Best embarkation we’ve ever had actually,
  8. I believe reefs are an issue at GC, no? Of course being GC they might just drill pillars through the reef ....
  9. $80m for a pier installation isn’t much actually so the other changes will likely just be updates. But yes let us freak freak out because they’re adding something that on'y enhances the stop for both crew and customers.
  10. Increase the HSC. If you leave money behind and don’t do that, honestly shame.
  11. They still do. For instance: https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/find-a-cruise/P1J20B/M110.html
  12. A button up shirt and chinos works for Gaia night so no fear having to go elsewhere. There is a deducted vegetarian menu in the MDR, ask your waiter and they’ll bring it. It has some great items?
  13. There is priority boarding but you get no priority going through customs and immigration - my guess is that’s what the HAL rep mentioned.
  14. This won’t work, unless they wait. Eidfjord is a WONDERFUL town to go on a long, meandering walk/hike.
  15. 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.
