  1. Thank you all for that wealth of information. Looks like the Embassy is the way to go. Cheers Rick
  2. Hi All, My wife and I are taking a 7 day eastern Caribbean cruise out of Fort Lauderdale in Dec 2019 and we are thinking of staying at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Ft Lauderdale. Can any of you cruisers/tourists give us some kind of indication about what that accommodation is like? Thanks Rick
  3. Bob, You might like to bring a cooler with you from home (the kind that folds down and would hold a 6 pack). Save some money mate. Rick
  4. We were there last May on the Koningsdam and were on Deck 6 Mozart Deck room 6138 which was a veranda balcony. The views were great. Rick
  5. Hawkeye65, we did the lumberjack show in Ketchikan back in 2008 and it was great, but like CruiseBruce says, there are other options available. I liked that Alaskan Amber beer there. Rick
  6. Mariketa, No that's not the case here. Anyone can post on this board no matter where you live..ok Rick
  7. That's a good one Esilef. Did it in 2011 and loved it.👍 Rick
  8. Hi Brenda, It was good to get back at least one reply to my submission. I appreciate all that info from you. Looking forward to the cruise. Rick
  9. My wife and I are doing a 7 day Caribbean cruise and also a 9 day cruise up the Mississippi on the American Queen steamboat in December, 2019...should be good!
  10. My wife and I have decided to take this river cruise in December, 2019. From what we've seen on the internet it looks pretty good. Can anybody let us know how the weather will be in Louisiana and Tennessee at that time of year? Thanks Rick
  11. Well I have decided to cancel our second 7 day cruise (14 days originally). The ports instead of the 2 Cuba ports of Havana and Cienfuegos are now Key West and Half Moon Cay which we visit on the first leg. No point in going to the same island twice. It is what it is! Rick
  12. Apparently the only people permitted to travel to Cuba are those on business trips, family trips or religious activity trips. For everyone else, which would obviously be the majority, no can do. The Cuban community is pretty pi$$ed off regarding this outcome to say the least, as are all the various cruise lines. My 2 cents. Rick
  13. As Australians coming a long way to visit Cuba, I must say we are disappointed, however what can you do. Just have to see what HAL comes up with as regards alternatives and take it from there. We all should know within the next few days I guess. Rick
  14. David, We are still going ahead with our cruise. Holland America should be in touch within the next few days with alternate ports. Rick
  15. The wife and I have a 14 day Cuba and Caribbean cruise with HAL booked for early December, 2019, however Cuba is now off limits thanks to the U.S. treasury Dept. We were really looking forward to particularly checking out Havana and having a ride in one of those old 50's Chevy's....It is what it is. Anyway should still be a memorable cruise. Cheers Rick
