  1. I'm not a germaphobe, but I feel more comfortable wearing slippers in the cabin, than going barefoot. DH wears his socks in the cabin, but at night for trips to the bathroom, he goes barefoot. We haven't contracted any dread diseases . . . yet. πŸ˜‰ Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  2. We used rolling duffles for a number of years until they finally gave out. Now we have uprights with spinners - I still think we had more room in the duffles. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  3. The Rotterdam will be our next ship, returning to FLL from Barcelona in the fall. Can't wait to see her tomorrow on the webcam! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  4. I'm interested in knowing this as well, because we are booked on the Rotterdam for a trans-Atlantic in the fall. However, looking at photos dated September 2019, it doesn't look like the televisions have been updated, and the "friendly" shower curtains still exist. Check cabin 2591 on halfacts.com and you'll see what I mean. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  5. Bon Voyage! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  6. I love your attitude; we would get along well if we cruised together. Welcome home and stay well! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  7. Bon Voyage ! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  8. You also get a clock on the wall of your cabin. And, it changes time automatically at midnight when the ship's clock goes forward or back an hour. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  9. If memory serves me correctly, this will be the 4th time we'll be on the Rotterdam. The last time was in 2011; hopefully they've updated the tiny televisions since then. LOL Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  10. Hi Jacqui, will you please include Honey Bunny and me on the October 17, 2020 sailing of the Rotterdam for the 15 Day Passage To America. Excited, as this will be our 5th trans-Atlantic! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  11. Ever since my husband's 3 heart attacks and subsequent sextuple bypass, we stopped playing the "what if" game. Life is too short to worry about unpredictables. We book our cruises, enjoy every moment of them, and then book more. We've lost lots of friends and family at very young ages, so we try to honour them by remembering and toasting to them in our travels. We take precautions as needed, but aren't frightened to the point of cancelling cruises or vacations. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  12. Because if you don't and the eagle eyed customs agents see it, they can charge you with failing to declare, and you end up paying a large fine, or possibly forfeiting the piece. They may ask you to prove you brought it from home by having you produce a bill of sale, or by calling the jewelery store to verify the purchase. It's always better to declare something, pay the duty, and have them wave you through, than having them stop you and start the inquiry. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  13. Bon Voyage! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  14. Last year it was the Maasdam; we are so thankful we were there then, instead of now. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  15. I've never brought a converter, only a European adapter plug. I've used my laptop, hair dryer, curling iron, etc., without any issues, by just plugging them into the adapter. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
