  1. On the Eurodam I did not like the low placement of the shampoo dispensers. Water runs down your arm, washing away some of the shampoo. Kind of wasteful.
  2. The cooking classes from years ago were good. You had a small group that stood around a central island. People in the class performed various prep work and depending on the chef you could learn some fun and interesting techniques. And you were allowed to eat what you made with a glass of wine. Recipe cards and aprons were included in the class fee. I thought it was worth the price for something fun to do on a sea day.
  3. You can also check prices online while you're on the ship. I saw a dress I liked onboard and found it online for $200 less. It was waiting for me at home when I arrived.
  4. No, in the past there was no corkage fee on HAL for wine enjoyed in cabin and there was no limit on the number of bottles that a passenger could bring onboard. Fees only applied if a bottle was brought to a bar or dining venue.
  5. I believe those are only perks in the Neptune and higher suites. Not in Signature Suites.
  6. No, there weren't any issues with HVAC. I just like to have a fan when I sleep. The air movement and white noise have just become a habit.
  7. Both people in the cabin receive the bonus days. If you are paying for another cabin the people who stay in that cabin receive the bonus days, not you.
  8. Here is the reporting criteria: https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/surv/gilist.htm
  9. That's a good point. Norovirus is much harder on the very young and the elderly.
  10. I enjoy your posts so much! It is so fun to read about all of your adventures in each port. I love that you find something fun and interesting to do everywhere you go and I look forward to your post each day! Thank you!
  11. Yet Carnival has far less incidents of Norovirus than HAL over the last several years. https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/surv/gilist.htm#2019 HAL is doing a good job this year but their record is not great.
  12. Family visits only. No "veiled tourism" as of May 2nd. https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/17/politics/pompeo-us-cuba-enforcement/index.html

    I like a nice breeze when I sleep so the fans work nice for us. We've had no problem getting one on our first day by asking our room steward. If you are on a cruise in a warm weather region, the cabin can get quite warm if docked with the sun on your side of the ship. Even with the drapes closed. So having a fan is a nice way to make things more comfortable when returning after an outing in the hot sun.
  14. What a wonderful idea! I hope you all have a wonderful time! There were plenty of outlets. We each had a phone and I had a separate camera and laptop. And as you can see in the photo we also requested a fan for the room. There were enough outlets to charge and use these things.
