  1. Kasu, I heartally agree. I also hate word correction! DD
  2. Sorry, my bad. The cruises I was looking at did not have it offered. I think most of them do though. DD
  3. When did HA end the freebies on the cruises (drink package, free gratuity, dining package)? I thought it was until July 1 but I don’t see it anymore. DD
  4. Received our 90% refund from our South America Cruise (March 15th) this week. It was credited to the credit card. The CC company (Chase) will send us a check within 8 to 10 business days as we really don’t want that much credit on the CC. We also got almost $3,000 in Future Cruise Credits. DD
  5. Sorry, I didn’t look deep enough. The Signature Dining Package is one dinner at the Pinnacle Grill and one at the Canneledo. The Distinctive package includes one at the Tamarind. DD
  6. I’m sure it has been discussed before but what is the “Dining Package” and does it depend on the class of ship? DD
  7. We have an Alaska Cruise booked for July 12 with the final payment coming up shortly. Our TA just called us to let us know that the final payment was pushed back to May 13th. There is hope yet, especially since we had purchased non-refundable airline tickets and non-refundable hotel for 3 nights prior in Seattle. We were on the 44 day KDam Around South America but cancelled the Wednesday before. DD
  8. Our Platinum Insurance for the two of us was around $1,600. We used this (lost it) when we cancelled the 44 day cruise on Wednesday night, in order to get the 10%. If we had waited until HAL had cancelled, I don’t know if we would have lost (used) it. DD
  9. All right, what is a URT? An upper respiratory??? DD
  10. We are taking the 44 day Voyage of the Americas, going around South America. We are 32 days short of being 4 star. We will be taking the Holland America Excursion to Igauzu falls which is $6000. This should qualify us for the 4 Star Mariner if this $6ooo is included (which Holland America has had for a few months). What chances do you think we have of getting our 4 Stars in Buenos Aires, rather than Lima? We would really like the laundry benefit, especially after being in Iguazu falls for a few days! DD
  11. On our upcoming 44 day cruise on the Koningsdam around South America we were offered “Club Orange” for $15 per person per day and we accepted it. For us, and our circumstances it makes sense. DD
  12. OK, question answered! I’m sorry that they are not allowed, but if the “rules” state they are not, I won’t bring it. I just hope my sciatica calms down before the cruise. Thanks for the info, even though it wasn’t what I wanted to hear. DD
  13. Can you bring a heating pad on board? I use one for my sciatica. I know that other high powered appliances, such as hair dryers and irons are not allowed, but a heating pad would be therapeutic. DD
  14. I personally like to look at trivia questions and answers. It shows me how much I know (if I get them right) and how much I don’t know (if I get them wrong - or have no idea). Keep it up, Kathy! DD
  15. We were on the Princendam on a trip to Norway last June and this is what I remember. In the MDR, the first time DW got a soda with the card she was brought a can. In other dinners she was brought a glass. The price was different, as I mentioned before. In the Showroom, we asked for two cans, unopened, and was brought, no problems. The price was different, though. DD
