  1. Thanks for the clever and entertaining info. A highlight is the daily wine selection which I think you secretly choose by the most creative names you can find. Safe and fun 4th of July everyone. We could all use some Vitamin Sea. Cheers!! Cindy
  2. I was there the same night as Reagan0712 in 2016 with the same HAL package seating experience as Oceanmom. We were lucky it did not rain as is quite common but was quite chilly as the evening went on. HAL made it very easy with guides directing along the way back to buses and refreshments back onboard ship. It was more expensive than DIY but well worth it for convenience. The show is wonderful. Hope you get to enjoy it soon.
  3. Three days ago booked Feb 2 Hawaii rather assuming Nov Hawaii would be cancelled !! Maybe I'll just forget the whole thing and stick with Oct 2021 Ryndam to use FCC from cancelled April cruise, of course assuming it is launched by then. May all our problems be no greater than this.
  4. I just booked Feb 2, 2021, Koningsdam 18-Day Hawaii in case Nov 3 Hawaii is cancelled or I decide to wait a few more months to cruise again. Both have HAL air and hotel to make it easier just in case. As a solo the cost is about the same. Must decide before Aug 1. I make my own bookings on line and call when I need something. I have seldom used a cruise consultant, but with things as they are, I thought it might be a good idea now. She spoke to "powers that be" last evening about my FCC for cancelled April. I have made several calls with long waits as well. It definitely shows will be available but has not yet officially been assigned to my Mariner ID. It's always "about 30 days more" for E-mail notification. It's been over 90 days so far! Can be assigned directly to whichever cruise I prefer including Oct, 2021 Ryndam. The 25% refund was posted to my credit card within a week of cancelling. As long as I know it's there I'm OK, but I will continue to follow up. Cheers!
  5. Love the new ships and all those sea days. Wish we all had the luxury of driving to port. Stay well.
  6. Koningsdam 18-day Hawaii 11/3/20 booked last October will hopefully still be a go. Very much missed the cancelled April Nieuw Amsterdam 24-day Transatlantic/Med. Just booked Ryndam Transatlantic October 2021. Keeping positive thoughts on completion date and state of the world by then.
  7. My first cruise was on her as well - 14 days Copenhagen to Rome including Paris, Tuscany, Provence. I was thrilled. The main stage was a lovely show lounge like BBKings on Koningsdam, and the Crows Nest was my new favorite place on earth. I loved every part of the ship experience. I was totally hooked on cruising and have been fortunate to have over 40 cruises all over the world since. It was my first trip to Europe, first trip anywhere by myself and 9/11 happened 4 days in. We were well taken care of and like now the whole world changed. But we'll be back.
  8. An amazing story of courage, dedication and perseverance. With grateful thanks to all.
  9. Should be second sea day on Nieuw Amsterdam from Ft. Lauderdale to Western Med ending in Barcelona on the 28th. It would be about lunch time followed by classic cruise dilemma "is sitting on deck with a drink and a book doing something or doing nothing." Hope you get to do that trip another year Horizon Chaser. I would love to be at the wonderful game lodge again in South Africa. Best of luck to everyone.
  10. Sad to not be boarding NA tomorrow for TA/Med for the rest of April, but does not seem so important now. Hope to meet some of these lovely people in the future.
  11. I also have seen refunds on only some of the excursions which I cancelled on line a few days before cancelling the April 4 transatlantic. They were credited quickly and then nothing. Also the refunded cruise portion posted to my credit card in a few days.
  12. Apple. Even updated just now.. September Zuiderdam cruise would only show my daily statement (of course). No other functions. Even with front desk help (two different people) it consistently said no one with my name or birthdate on board! However, January on NS all worked fine but never tried history.
  13. Interesting. The only thing the app will show me is the general HAL info and cruise mapper. No countdown or history, etc. All say will be available on board.
  14. Kathy49 - Where did you get the information that David and Sally Abel tested positive.
  15. No hand washing stations outside MDR, however. Better something than nothing.
