  1. Retreat cabanas are adult only. I have rented family cabanas on NA and Zuiderdam. Very comfortable but walls are not removable. I have read on CC that cabanas are all much smaller on Konigsdam.
  2. wouldn’t it be 19 days later? 15 day cruise + 4 day space between?
  3. Queenvee, just a thought... you said something about reserving retreat cabanas by the week pre cruise but I think you can only book for the entire cruise pre cruise. If I’m wrong I’m sure someone will chime in. you will enjoy a retreat cabana! The service, the location, the solitude equals heaven in my book! enjoy!
  4. And I've seen plenty who pay higher fares acting like really offensive jerks. I don't think how much you pay determines your character!
  5. bluesplayer, that is exactly what happened to me! Big box TA here I come! k
  6. Thank you, all, for your thoughts and ideas! I’ll try again today and I will ask for a supervisor this time. thanks again!
  7. I received an email from HAL announcing a private sale. Tried on line to book a cruise that I had been researching. Whenever I would get to choose a cabin, an error message came up and said call HAL. I called my PCC and after investigation, she said I was not eligible for the special sale and that’s why the error message came up. huh? I hadn’t even gotten to the point of entering the private sale code! So I tried again and same problem. My PCC then told me the private sale code was only for cruises thru March 2020. Today I received my cruise atlas with.... a private sale leaflet and that cruise I was researching is there again! I called HAL direct and spoke to a representative who, after 10 minutes of investigating, told me the new code I have can’t be found. Could I please email or fax a copy of the leaflet to her! WHAT? should I really have to work so hard to give them my money? Big box is looking pretty good right now! anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
  8. Question: how does princess vs compare to a Neptune suite? We did a top suite on princess years ago (one and done) and the balcony was tiny! And don’t forget the Neptune lounge!
  9. Cigar smoking is only allowed at the outdoor location on the pool deck.
  10. I don’t think the above post is totally accurate.... Neptune lounge is not open 24/7 no reserved show seats for Neptune lounge not all ships have a dedicated club orange restaurant and NO free minibar!
  11. When comparing Oceania to HAL, another consideration is that specialty restaurants are included in the fare. Also included are all non alcoholic beverages, mock tails and water, sparkling and still.
  12. It was Niuew Amsterdam. It wasn’t a big problem, just a minor annoyance. We were thankful that we could check on the TV in our cabin, so it just involved a stop at the Neptune lounge.
  13. Another use for on board credit is gratuities. If they are not part of a promotion or prepaid by your TA, they will be automatically deducted daily from your ship board credit. 14.50 p/p per day. Also, enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or a mock tail while enjoying the view.
