  1. Agree with cruisemom, We loved the Koningsdam, and IMO to sail on a new ship vs an older one with more people makes it an easy choice. We have enjoyed both lines, but prefer HAL and contrary to what most believe found a far older crowd on Princess in the Caribbean. We also love the Tamarind restaurant on the Pinnacle class ships. They are beautiful ships!
  2. As none of us has a crystal ball, things could unfold in many ways. We have deposits on two cruises, one from precovid. But as always refundable, so we are covered either way. It still is nice to hope and dream. But wait and see how things are.
  3. You’re most welcome, yes the first two photos are of the castle we stayed at, we were in the granary. We’ve stayed there twice as it has a great location for touring and is near some of our favourite restaurants💕
  4. Great question! Circumnavigation of Japan during cherry blossom time Mediterranean as long as possible! with Istanbul, we have done several back to backs, so 20/23/24 days Baltic with Oslo or within Berlin Norwegian fjords on the Rotterdam out of Rotterdam Partial transit of Panama Canal I am sure that French Polynesia would have been on the list had it not been cancelled!
  5. Good morning and thanks all! @kazusorry to heard about your BIL’s mother! Hope you hear soon about Marley, waiting is so hard. Yes, to the hot peppers and sauce for DH! Not sure about that sangria or wine! Glad to hear about the need for preflight Covid testing, here and in the US. Not sure why the airlines were objecting to it, in my mind I would feel safer flying that way! Hope the vaccine rollout gets going more smoothly! @cruisemom42 a few Tuscany photos
  6. Aw thanks! I got the new iPad Air and it works well at sunset! DH got a camera with a crazy zoom, for wildlife. He bought it before our European cruise in 2019 but dropped it in Meteora and thankfully was able to get it replaced afterwards but so far few pictures with it in Europe. I would be happy to share some Greece and Italy with you! Two of my favourite places! We have started doing a lot of bird photography this year and I always find getting out in nature lifts my spirits! We live near the mountains, but I am fascinated by how they change, kind of like how I love s
  7. Good morning and thanks all! @VMax1700sorry for your loss! Sending positive thoughts to your wife as she starts her treatments. Love to watch the squirrels, our local bobcat has thinned the population a bit. We have grey, brown, black and the small native red ones that are very feisty! Yesterday was a day of such hope, for the world and also in our family! Stay safe!
  8. So serene! No I miss my favourite place in Montana! Hopefully this year!

  12. For the last few year, yes other than 2020 and who knows when they will start again of course. I also wanted to add the flight to Japan from the west coast is only around 9 or so hours, we were pleasantly surprised! Much easier than Singapore.
