  1. We stayed in an OV midship cabin on NS for 14 days in June and loved it. No problems with noise. Have a great cruise!
  2. Our family enjoys eating there, especially the meatballs, salad and gelato. The new menu features a balsamic chicken dish that is delicious. We have eaten there many times on different ships and always had a positive experience. I hope you do too!
  3. Definitely Grand Turk is best. We have been several times with "Exclusive Escapes" on private tours. Just Google them. We just walked a few minutes down the beach from the pier to their place, got gear which they furnish if you like and got on the boat. We were a family of 8 and there were a couple of others but a small group. They do 2 snorkel spots, the wall and diving for conchs if you wish. My grandson loved it and we went home with the most gorgeous huge conchs which they clean out for you. Also took us to beach for homemade conch salad. Great company. Not $$$.
  4. Well, if you like Alaska, you will love Norway! We spent 3 weeks cruising the fjords on Prinsendam in in 2014 and even after 4 world cruises, it remains my favorite trip. Thus we are taking our family back for 14 days on Nieuw Statendam this June to celebrate our 50th anniversary. I agree with RuthC that all the choices are wonderful so you can't go wrong. If I had to choose, I prefer the Rotterdam over Veendam, but find Amsterdam more charming than Rotterdam in terms of port cities although both are interesting. Yes, Geiranger is breathtaking, but so are most of the other fjords. We visited 12 Norwegian ports in 2014 and will see some of those and some new ones this year. Will be glad to share with you in more detail now and after we visit again if you wish. nannrick2007@gmail dot com Oh, I think #1 would be the winner!
  5. We take our family on Eurodam or NA every year for Thanksgiving so will be on again soon. We have sailed hundreds of days on HAL ships and always stay low, midship and outside and love it. My husband is not a great sailor and I don't like the darkness of inside cabins, so they work out well for us. Enjoy your cruise!
  6. What a great accounting of your trip! Many thanks for taking the time to share it with us. We frequently take our grandchildren cruising with us as we feel it is important for them to learn how to behave and to have the educational benefits of travel. They love cruising as do their parents who get to come along. We are taking the whole gang to Norway next summer on Nieuw Statendam so hope you will do a review of your spring trip in 2019 as well. It has been a pleasure.
