  1. > Helping our teammates get home amidst the global pandemic, travel restrictions and individual country quarantine protocols has been challenging. But through it all, our onboard teammates have been an inspiration with their positive attitudes.

  5. https://www.hollandamerica.com/blog/topics/news/holland-america-line-extends-its-pause-of-cruise-operations/?linkId=88080163 With travel restrictions continuing for the near future due to global health concerns, Holland America Line has decided to extend its pause of global cruise operations and cancel all Alaska, Europe and Canada/New England cruises for 2020. In addition, Amsterdam will not operate the 79-day Grand Africa Voyage from Boston, Massachusetts, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that was scheduled to depart on Oct. 3, 2020. Holland America Line had previously cancelled all 2020 Land+Sea Journeys, which combine an Alaska cruise with an overland tour to Denali and the Yukon. “As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented and challenging times, the best decision right now is to extend our pause in cruise operations into the fall,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “While this is very disappointing and we never want to let our guests down, as soon as it makes sense we will be back cruising again, giving our guests the memorable travel experiences they continue to dream about.”

  8. Princess released a music video and message to the cruise industry... The talented team on board Caribbean Princess of Akaash D’oro, Jennifer Simser and Daniel Nogueira wrote and produced this beautiful, original song to help show support for the Princess family and everyone else around the world during these extraordinary times. Their message is a simple, but reassuring one: we will get through this…together. And you are not alone.

  11. If you want to see Orca's in the wild... two suggestions to research. make a trip over to Steveston and check out https://vancouverwhalewatch.com/. There is a downtown shuttle to take you to the Steveston departure point. The Steveston departure avoids the rough waters and long ride around Stanley Park and the airport. The Prince of Whales offers an Orca Whale watch with Victoria combo. https://princeofwhales.com/whale-watching-adventure-tour/vancouver/ultimate-day-tour-to-victoria/
  12. Just found a published fare grid... it states it's $8.95 from SFO to Powell station by BART.
  13. Sorry everyone.... yes, I was trying to say to take the BART from the airport to PARC 55. According to google maps... it states the ride from SFO to Powell station is $2.60 on Google Maps. I too thought it was low, but the BART fare calculator does not appear to be working for me. https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/SFO+International+Terminal,+California,+USA/Parc+55+San+Francisco+-+a+Hilton+Hotel,+Cyril+Magnin+Street,+San+Francisco,+CA,+USA/@37.6918147,-122.4967347,12z/am=t/data=!3m1!5s0x8085808f62f1a7d5:0x64dca8539e1a07d0!4m18!4m17!1m5!1m1!1s0x808f779a0a110afd:0x42d1681344b3dc1a!2m2!1d-122.3900538!2d37.61496!1m5!1m1!1s0x808580858a853597:0xf36fa59e8a02cca4!2m2!1d-122.4090609!2d37.7848243!2m3!6e0!7e2!8j1578744000!3e3!5m1!1e1
