  1. To all of you photographers....Thank you for making my day! My husband and I have completed 45 cruises and looking at these outstanding photos brings back fond memories. Hopefully when our mandatory "shelter in place" (southern Oregon) is over we can look at cruising again.
  2. We are seniors looking for a quiet hotel near Seatac prior to our cruise in late Sept. We usually stay at the Cedarbrook Lodge but they are full for the date that we need. The quiet factor is the most important thing to us. Any suggestions?
  3. Does the BSE plan cover the fee of a glass of wine ordered in the MDR?
  4. That is not my understanding where there is not a life sentence. This is what I found: Many prisoners can get time off—that is, a reduction in sentence—by behaving well. In the federal system, prisoners who, in the judgment of the Bureau of Prisons, have exhibited “exemplary compliance with institutional disciplinary regulations” can get up to 54 days per year off their sentences. Prisoners are eligible if they are serving a prison term of more than one year; those serving life sentences are ineligible.
  5. Thank you all. We were in a Neptune Suite on the Amsterdam under Canaletto and it was completely quiet. On the Maasdam we would prefer Starboard side. Moving under the Lido will also put us under the overhang. We felt sorry for the people on the Amsterdam who had a large part of their view restricted due to the overhang, this was especially true when cruising Tract Arm. I am thinking that our alternative would be to move forward and under either the Beauty Salon or the Massage center.
  6. We are looking at a SA suite on the Maasdam. Would noise from the Lido deck above (pool area and buffet) be problematic?
  7. I wish that the OP would return to this thread and let us know if he, hopefully, had travel insurance to help cover the exorbitant fees.
  8. Sounds like a scam to me. I'd call HAL and notify them or if you booked with a TA let that person/company know.
  9. Barb....we did not receive daily water on the Amsterdam so it is news to me too.....Judith
  10. Chicopaige....I am so happy to hear that you are getting resolution and your bag back to your home address. Losing luggage is one of our biggest fears! One thing that we do when traveling is we put a full size sheet of cardstock that is a color, not white, inside our suitcase on top of all of our visible things. It has our full names, address, and phone numbers for contact purposes.
  11. My husband and I also got off the Amsterdam 7-1 and used PV as we have many times. Our luggage arrived at our home airport w/o a problem as it has many times in the past using this service. I always worry about this and will keep the contacts noted in this thread. Chicopaige...I am so sorry to hear that you are missing a bag and hope that it is recovered soon. Not a good way to end a great cruise. I am pleased to read of the responses that you have received from both HAL & PV. This makes me think that next time we will take a close up photo of the tag on the bag.
  12. Embarkation day lunch in the MDR is a well kept secret. Just got off the Amsterdam and we headed for the MDR after dropping off our luggage on embarkation day. There were very few people there and the lunch was wonderful, the atmosphere very relaxed.
  13. How does one get to the Kodiak Bear Town Market from the ship? Is it walkable to get there or do you need to take the shuttle (school) bus. I tried a search for maps and could find nothing.
  14. Barb....this will be our third time also for this particular cruise. It will be our 14th Alaska cruise and our 44th cruise overall. We will be celebrating our 45th anniversary. In my research I also learned all of the good things that you did about 7027. I will be happy to get in touch with you once I return. We do not purchase internet on board. When are you going? My email address is: markjudith at msn dot com
  15. I would like to get back to wine. My DH and I will be on a cruise a week from tomorrow. We are interested in one of the Sommelier Suite Cellar wine packages. We are three star Mariners and understand that we can get a 25% discount for our Mariner status. Can someone clarify that for me. Thanks....
