  1. We stayed 2 nights at the Movenpick last September. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Super service, they gladly held some bags for several days that we had sent ahead to the hotel, and an awesome breakfast buffet (more like a huge brunch) was included with our room. You literally walk out the front door and a few steps to the left and enter the cruise terminal. So much fun watching the ships arrive in the morning too. The cost was very reasonable for what we got IMO.
  2. You are correct, every cabin can order room service dinner from the MDR.
  3. I'm looking forward to this room service menu! So nice not to have to write in "wheat toast" or how we like our eggs, etc.
  4. It looks like there will be 2 other ships there with you, the Nieuw Amsterdam and an MSC ship. https://www.cruisetimetables.com/cruises-to-corfu-greece.html
  5. You will have many opportunities to buy a wine package on board. Very easy, and the steward will get credit for it that way.
  6. Thank you both. I'm going to change our reservation to an earlier time.
  7. We will have our first Neptune Suite on our next cruise, so I'm curious too. About what time is the suite reception the first night? I've made reservations in the Pinnacle that night at 7 but don't want to miss the reception. Thanks!
  8. I see it there Kerkira (Corfu) https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/find-a-cruise/E0M12B/J067.html
  9. Thank you Kazu, I hope you can get some helpful information. I have some doubts too because the two times it's offered on our cruise are sea days (first one between NZ and Australia) and the second one on our last night between Hawaii and Victoria. 24 days apart.
  10. I'm wondering the same thing. We have 4 cruises booked for this year and 2 so far for next year and have no plans to cancel. None of them are to Asia, that has never been on my bucket list anyway. But our next one is Australia-NZ-South Pacific-Vancouver and I'm not worried at all. I plan to do as I always do to try to stay healthy while traveling.
  11. Thank you everyone for your thoughts. I thought others might be curious about it. I'd never heard of it and was hoping others may have or at least be curious as I am. I agree, it sounds like the cellar master dinner but upgraded. We'll have a ton of OBC on our next cruise along with prepaid gratuities and beverage package, so this may be something to try. It will be offered twice on our cruise. But like Kazu, I'd like to see the menu, wine offerings, and what else may be offered on our cruise.
  12. I agree wholeheartedly with sevenseasnomad. We used SPB for 2 days in St. Petersburg and one day in Berlin. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again, and will if we get back to the Baltics.
  13. Thanks Debbie. I'm hoping to see the menu too, it would be helpful before I decide whether or not to book it. I was curious if anyone's cruise before ours had it, but maybe not.
  14. Nobody? I did find this, apparently it was announced in October (I was on a cruise, so didn't see it). https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/4602/
  15. Has anyone heard of this before? I was looking at the dining options for our upcoming cruise in April (Noordam April 2) and this was just added within the past few days. Offered only twice on our 39-day cruise. Starts with cocktails, 6-course dinner with wine, $120/pp. I'm assuming there's no Mariner discount on this specialty dinner...
