  1. Our ship was the Britannis - inside cabin below water line. But it was very big, lots of closets.
  2. December, 1990. Chandris cruise line (to become Celebrity) Fantasy ship. 5 day Caribbean, $499.00 I think.
  3. For those of us who have enjoyed the "In-depth EXC cruises" - please let the Home Office know immediately after your cruise, and book another one as soon as you are able. The bean-counters will not implement more of them, or assign an additional ship to more itineraries unless they see that the loyalty is there. I am booked again on Maasdam in December, and again next September. I too would be excited to see other itineraries in Europe..and more!
  4. In the serve-your-self buffets I have seen 15 or so pieces - seems excessive?
  5. I have cruised on many HAL ships, all have servers for the food on the buffet on the lido. It also helps for keeping down food waste, and passengers helping themselves to a huge stack of bacon!
  6. I was on Maasdam last fall(2019) for the inaugural EXC cruise, Kon Tiki, which included Easter Island. I was excited every day to attend every lecture that I could. The guest chefs, cultural ambassadors, and expert lecturers were amazing. I will be on Maasdam again in December for an Australia/New Zealand 28 day cruise. I was hoping that the experience would not diminish over time. Looking forward to your experience comments.
  7. Exactly, and they have launched 2 bigger sparkly new ships, and another one to come. They seem popular with some of the folks who comment on this blog - they didn't come for free!
  8. I was able to book a guarantee Lanai cabin for this portion - not very many of them so I am mid-ship on Lower Prom which is my favorite place on the ships.
  9. I also like to book early - but they are only booking "guarantee" category of cabins - no choice of deck, aft-bow, cabin location. They might allow choice if you book the whole grand cruise, but I just wanted the Brazil part. Guess you just have to check frequently.
  10. I booked a 33 night portion of a "Grand Cruise" starting Feb 2021 last week. Don't know how many other cruises are available.
