  1. Tim, We are on the 2020 sailing. Would you mind sharing your list of excursions and how they were? If you don't post it here, could you please send me an email when you get home? kratz dot travel at gmail dot com Thanks! Jim PS If you run into Towelman (Howard), please say HI from me.
  2. To me, those things add to the adventure! I agree that missing ports is a disappointment, but how many people can say they got stuck in the mud on a cruise ship?
  3. There is a link to the launch video HERE. 250 launches for Ariane! After two postponements and a temporary halt in the timeline due to weather conditions, Ariane 5 was finally able to fly this Tuesday, November 26 to carry out its mission and put into orbit its two passengers of the day, the telecommunications satellites TIBA- 1 (Egypt) and inmarsat GX5 (United Kingdom). A mission with a particular flavor since it was the 250th launch of the Ariane family, which comes almost 40 years after the launch of the first launch Ariane, December 24, 1979 at the Guiana Space Center!
  4. Wow! That was almost an instant response! Thank you!
  5. Following your blog. We are booked for this cruise in 2020. Thanks for posting extra info here and your willingness to answer questions. I have two: 1) What is there to do/see at Devil's Island? and 2) The 2020 itinerary shows Macapa as a "service stop". What is that? Safe travels! Jim

    2014 Baltic cruise

    Aboard MS Eurodam June 14 from Copenhagen (overnight) and sailing to Tallinn, St Petersburg (overnight), Helsinki, Stockholm (overnight), Warnemunde, and Kiel before returning to Copenhagen on June 28.
  7. My introduction to Indian food was during our first sailing on Carnival. We were on Liberty in 2011 and sat at a table for 2 that was next to an Indian couple from Toronto who were on their first cruise. We quickly got acquainted. They both ordered the Indian food. When the waiter brought their orders, he presented all these large plates of wonderful smelling food that seemed much more than anyone could eat! When I commented on how good it smelled, Karan offered to share hers with me because it was more than she could eat. I accepted and was instantly hooked! The next night, I ordered my own. Since then, I have enjoyed Indian food in various MDR's on both Carnival and Holland America ships. Daily lunch at Tandoor on the Splendor was wonderful! I hope it is not going away.
  8. georgiacat, you can find information on the Carnival web site. Here is a link for the Fly2Fun page https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3110/~/carnivals-fly2fun-air-program
  9. Djptcp, A few months in Spain sounds awesome! Hope it works out for you! At this time, we are planning to stay only a week in Croatia before getting on board in Venice but we might also go earlier and spend another week in Germany. We'll see how things develop. There is a lot of time to plan! Maybe we'll see you on board in October!
  10. cellfree, You were on the Magic with us in January. I saw you signed up for the M&M on the Legend TA from Barcelona and also here on this page. We have a Roll Call going for the TA. Many people have combined it with the October 20 sailing from Venice to Barcelona to make it B2B. Come on over and check out the Roll Call. I created a spreadsheet for the B2B to help organize activities. Hope to hear from you! Jim and Pam

    2018 VOV

    Voyage of the Vikings on HAL Rotterdam July 18-August 25 Boston to Rotterdam and return: USA, Canada, (Nova Scotia & Labrador), Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Netherlands, Ireland, Scotland, Canada (Newfoundland) and Prince Christian Sound twice!
  12. Good to know about the 1,000 points. Sounds like you get it with each order. I ordered 2 cards today. In the future, I'll order them separately to get an extra 1,000 points! Now that I used up all my points, I have to wait until tomorrow to begin adding more. You can accumulate up to 5,000 points per day. You get the maximum points even if your answers are incorrect!
  13. James, Thanks for your review and many pics. Looking forward to seeing the ship in person! bdpartrick, We're on Magic Jan 20.
  14. Excellent point. HAL is one of the few remaining lines that offers religious services on board - something we also appreciate very much. We attend the Interdenominational services but also an occasional Mass and Shabbat service. We had lunch with Father Roman and enjoyed being with Rabbi Eliot on excursions during our last cruise. Always mention this "perk" in the HAL comments after a cruise. They need to know it is appreciated.
