  1. Interestingly, as I understand it, LR is actually 100% owned by a UK registered charitable foundation. It’s profits support the foundation. Not sure that really has any impact on its day to day operations though.
  2. Yes this is it. I use PIA and tried different different VPM access servers. Some let me access and some don't. Thanks for your help.
  3. Thanks for the help on this. I figured out the problem: if I turned off my VPN I can connect to the HAL website fine but if I try to access through the VPN I get Access Denied. Strange, I've never run into a site that did that before. Also I need to get a printer that I can use directly from my iPad...
  4. For the past couple of days when I try to access the HAL website from my iMac I get the message: Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.hollandamerica.com/" on this server. I get this same message using Safari and Crome. I can access fine via my iPad but I want to print our ship docs and can't do that via my iPad. Are others having this problem? I don't understand why cruise lines seem particularly incapable of setting up and maintaining properly functioning websites.
  5. Really enjoying your report, thanks for taking the time to write it. Especially since we will be on the same ship in a couple of weeks! One question: I’ve often wondered if the vibrations from the engines and propellers are noticeable in the aft cabins. Did you ever notice it?
  6. I would advise caution before booking a cruise right after a major ship refit. There is a good possibility that not everything will be 100% complete and that there will be some finishing work still being done with work crews aboard. If that type of thing would bother you it might be best to book a later cruise. Personally I would never book a maiden voyage (new build or after major refit).
