  1. Hi! I just bought those Ecco sandals. Not the sturdiest but a good compromise between style and comfort. https://ca.ecco.com/en/ecco-flash-t-strap-sandal-240873.html?dwvar_240873_color=57462#q=T%2Bstrap&lang=en_CA&start=1 This article was helpful too: https://amp.travelandleisure.com/style/shoes/comfortable-walking-sandals-womens Hope that helps!

  4. Looks like there is contradictory information out there, such as for upgrading to EBP. 😀 We shall see! Thanks!
  5. Thanks! I checked Explore 4 terms and conditions, and it says nothing about an obligation for third and fourth passengers under 21 years old. I hope Jarreds_mommytoo has received a wrong information. 😁 Otherwhise, Explore 4 will become very expensive for us.
  6. Really? Not very happy (I try to limit sugary drinks) but thanks!
  7. We are cruising with our two teens. We booked under the Explore 4 promo. Does that mean we will Be charged for two Quench packages for our girls? Thanks!
  8. Hi! This thread should give you some answers: I booked a Family Stateroom (category FA).
  9. I would like to know for the Veendam as well. Can we borrow rackets or do we have to bring our own?
  10. I think 1-2 days would be just fine! I’m sure you will have an amazing time!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Hi! I never cruised before (first time will be in 2019!) but I went in Europe numerous times from Canada, often for short periods of time (for work). Flights are at night so the first days are pretty rough with jet lag and the lack of sleep. I would strongly suggest you arrive few days before your cruise, especially with a port-intensive itinerary. You would be able to adjust and rest a bit while enjoying Barcelona or Rome! Those cities have so much to offer! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Exactly! Anyway, for those interested in that topic, I found this YouTube video that shows really well the setup for quad in a Vista Suite when all the beds (including the upper and the sofa) are open (beginning around 8min 34 sec):
  13. Bonjour! J'y ai pensé, mais c'est plus de 1000$ de plus. Nous sommes déjà à la limite de notre budget. Merci! (Sorry for the French hidjack! He suggested I get two connecting cabins, which is a good idea, just a bit too expensive for us!).
  14. I will check that out, thanks! I do think HAL would be a great fit for us and we are willing to squeeze in a little bit! This is a very port intensive itinerary, so I don’t expect to be in the room that much anyway. Thanks again to all for your help! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. Thanks! With four people, I figured even a few inches more could’nt hurt! The only drawback is we have the same daily charges as a real suite. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  16. I just booked this cabin, so I'll be happy to read the answers :-)
  17. Absolutely! I wanted a verandah, but I think it's a good option for families, perhaps showing HAL intends to go more towards this clientele for his future ships. Regarding the two staterooms option: it was more expensive of course, so I finally chose the Vista Suite. I think it's a good compromise. Thanks everyone for your kind help!
  18. You are absolutely right! I considered this cruise line mainly for the itinerary, the food quality and the generally more upscale feeling. My teens and I are more into reading, museums, enrichment activities, etc. than waterslides and karting! :-) For this trip, we see the ship mostly as a floating hotel and do not need a lot of entertainment. But I understand we are not a perfect fit with this cruise line market. Thanks for your input!
  19. Thanks to you both! So, if I understand, in either rooms, the upper bed will be on top of the main bed. But the Vista will be roomier. Indeed, other cruise lines have better sleeping arrangement for four people!
  20. Hello! I am a new cruiser considering a HAL Med cruise in July 2019 (12 days from Rome to Greek Islands). I am a long time lurker on theses boards and now decided to jump in :-) We are a family of four (DH and I, two teens that will be 12 and 14 years old at the time of cruising). I am interested in either a Verandah Stateroom or a Vista Suite. I am looking for information regarding bedding layout of those two staterooms. I understand that in quad verandah staterooms (marked with a square in deck plans), the pullman bed is located on top of the main bed. Is that right? That seems strange (and unpractical) to me. I would rather have it on top of the sofa bed (one kid in each). Can anyone confirm me it is the case? What about the Vista layout? Would it be the same bed arrangement even if the main bed in closer to the balcony? Thanks in advance for your help! Anabelle
