  1. Loved, loved, the Banks Mansion. Literally all inclusive. Central enough to walk to Anne Franks (pre book your tickets on line) and to the Museum district. Fantastic staff, cheese tray and treats at night along with wine. Other drinks (alcoholic and not) available 24/7 with a great coffee machine and breakfast (for us) was wonderful. Our friends that stayed there were quite happy ๐Ÿ˜‰ And friends also stayed at JlL No 76 ( I think thatโ€™s the number but just google and it will pop up) . Itโ€™s in the museum district. Amsterdam is a fabulous city. The people are great and welcoming. Enjoy every minute of it ๐Ÿ™‚ Weโ€™d stay there in a heartbeat.
  2. Now THAT is a good question ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL I can just about guarantee that itโ€™s a safe bet on the answer - YES ๐Ÿ™‚ Heck, HAL hasnโ€™t even gotten it in place to offer Mimosas in the PG. Room service yes, PG no. If they canโ€™t figure out their suites, theyโ€™ll never get Club O figured out ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. Another really helpful, kind post from you, I see ๐Ÿ™„ Ummm, were you on our cruise? I was simply reporting what several of our friends said to us that joined us in San Diego. No steamer trunks seen on the Collectors either ๐Ÿ˜‰ But you go ahead and belittle those of us that did the Collectors if it makes you feel better.
  4. Some on our upcoming cruise in April(both segments) have succeeded in upselling or upgrading and choosing rooms Always hard to tell when but in this case, I think a few of us were proactive ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. What a great story. I did it for DH but just a Neptune Suite at the time. The deal was pretty dam good and since we were already 5* going in the different lineup didn't alert him. We walked down the hall (and he knew it was the Neptune Suites) and he thought I knew a short cut to the room so he didn't question me. I put the key in the door with the balloons on it and told him "we were home". He was pretty happy, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Youโ€™ll have to โ€œtip your handโ€ when you go to check in. Thereโ€™s usually a special spot for the PS. If that doesnโ€™t give her an idea, the escort onto the ship might ๐Ÿ˜‰ What a delightful surprise for her ๐Ÿ˜„
  7. Love it, but you do know that for certain cheerleaders and for some companies, common sense and whatโ€™s right has no skin in the game? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. WOW! Very nice ๐Ÿ™‚ So happy for you. Definitely pick a night and do course by course dining in your suite. Invite friends if you want and it will all be arranged. Just like the MDR but a bit different as it will be your own private party ๐Ÿ˜„ Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„
  9. Hasnโ€™t happened to us us and Iโ€™ve seen no report on the boards about it. Everyone says (when the question is asked) that your price holds. Good point. Be careful about playing with the booking as it can inadvertently be cancelled without asking you. No biggie if the flight you want is still available but since there are usually only a few seats on each plane, you can end up losing your flight. and once your final payment is done, you definitely do NOT want to lose that flight ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Of course, but thanks just the same ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can usually find anything I want to - if itโ€™s there ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. Not many. I only have 3 or four to do until Kathi is back from her World. There are very few after that I think. You really don't want to miss the March 25th sail a way though. It's the last sailing of the Prinsendam out of FLL. She will probably not be back even under the Reisen flag. Ok, I am officially admitting to pumping a future sail a way. I know I will be glued with perhaps a small tear in my eye as she crosses with some of my roll call members we are joining in Lisbon on board.
  12. Actually your express docs should be ready by now, I would think. 50 days out is the time frame, I think as long as you did your registration on line. It should give you a good idea (things are subject to change on board). Your repositioning sounds familiar to our canal transit. A lot of people off in one port and a bunch on. We stayed on until Vancouver. No Gala nights the entire time for the repositioning portion which I quickly grew to understand why.
  13. Doesn't seem to be available on my cuise still. Oh well, I'll buy it on board ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks for the heads up
  14. A shame we will pass by each other and might not even know. I like to do the P'dams TA's and have done a lot of them but I was enchanted with the next 2 segments so will have to bite the bullet and fly to LIsbon ๐Ÿ˜ž. Much more civilized to sail ๐Ÿ˜‰ Truly wish we were on with you as I am sure this will be a memorable TA indeed ๐Ÿ˜„
