  1. We booked an N guarantee but ended up in a K interior cabin. Like you said, there are only two N cabins on the Veendam.
  2. What happened with the quarantine on the Diamond Princess makes me rethink room choice: interior/ocean view VS. balcony.
  3. Even if you do carry your smart phone around on the ship and you are willing to read the news in the app, it wasn't available any of the numerous times I attempted to read it during our last cruise. Technology and HAL meet again.
  4. I am guessing this is the Oosterdam on February 11th, and the Eurodam on February 12th.
  5. We found that joining two groups in the Pinnacle Grill was as simple as just calling and asking. They were very accommodating.
  6. The Diamond Princess? 61 cases so far.
  7. On the Veendam, this month, there was still a sign by the washroom door that said to use a paper towel or tissue to open the door. The problem was that the paper towel dispenser was replaced with a hand blow dryer. HAL had the little wash cloths to dry your hands by the sink.
  8. We didn't experience a decline in junk mail during our recent cruise (January 8-15). Numerous pieces of needless advertising showed up at our door multiple times each day.
  9. The Mariner Lunch wasn't on embarkation day the past few cruises we have been on. You find out about it when you receive an invitation delivered to your cabin telling you the date, time, and place.
  10. On our recent 7-day Western Caribbean Cruise on the Veendam, I didn't recall an Orange Party taking place. I had to look through all of the 'When and Where' guides to even find an Orange Party listed. Apparently, the Orange Party took place at 8:30 on Saturday in the Ocean Bar. It was so low-key I didn't even realize it happened.
  11. We docked right by Mallory Square; easy walk to anything in or near town.
  12. There are four hot tubs in the aft area now. Two round and two rectangular. It was fun to watch the water pour out of them as the ship's deck leaned back and forth. I rarely saw them used on our cruise.
