  1. I was wondering if Hurricane Dorian hurt the docking areas in Canada. I read on FB that these ports might need to be accessed by tenders. Does anyone have any information about these ports? We sail October 9.
  2. I don't recall ever having a problem. I believe I asked for the number they were assigning the wine bottle so that it was easier to find the next evening.
  3. We are going to disembark from an Oceania cruise, stay overnight in Southampton for one night and then embark on a Princess ship on June 4. Please recommend a hotel for us. we do need A/C, just in case. We would prefer hotel that is in a pleasant area so that we can enjoy the town of Southampton (not sure what is available in Southampton.) I read there is a mall near the port, but I wonder if there is a walking street with restaurants and shops? I'll do research on Southampton, but info on hotels would be appreciated.
  4. We just booked 9038. Is that far enough away from the lounge noise?
  5. I was wondering when RCCL will announce the itineraries for June and July 2021.
  6. We are considering a Crown Princess Cruise. We travel as a couple only. We prefer to join others for dinners (share a table) usually a table for 6. I'm not sure the term that Princess has for its Anytime Dining, but will we be seated with others if we request a table for 6 and if we get the Club Class will that matter? What times are the fixed dinners on Princess? I know it's easier to share dinner with others if we are in the fixed time, but we just prefer to go when we choose, usually around 6:30.
  7. I just read the post that discussed Perry Golf cruises as I am interested in a 2021 Scotland cruise and it is a Perry Golf cruise. We are not golfers. However, it seems that the golfers and non-golfers get along well. We cruise as a couple, just the two of us, but we enjoy meeting others at dinner. What is the possibility on Azamara to be seated with one or two other couples for dinner who we don't know? I have a feeling that a golfer may prefer to enjoy each other's company instead of sitting with a non-golfer.
  8. I guess my title said it all! Does anyone know which dock the Zuiderdam will be using on October 17? Thank you!
  9. At what hotel are you staying? Last time we stayed at the Renaissance which was very nice.
  10. I've two suggestions for restaurants and would like to know which one is better or if another restaurant should be added to the list. The two I know are Porthole Restaurant and Portland Lobster Restaurant. Has anyone a suggestion or favor one over the other? Thank you!
  11. Thank you! The prices that I see online are now higher. (But, of course!)
  12. Hi Everyone! I was hoping to see a list of the wines on the packages that are offered on HAL's Zuiderdam. I am interested in the 4 bottle packages, and there are three different types. I'd love to see the wines offered on all the lists. Does anyone have this information? I did a search on this forum and did not see anything. Thank you!
  13. I want to share we were on the Koningsdam the week prior to dry dock and they were working on it while we were on board. The banging noise was so bad, HAL gave us some cash and upgraded our next trip. I won't travel a ship immediately prior or after its time in dry dock. My friend who works for RCCL makes sure that his mom is not on a ship prior or after and I learned from experience.
  14. Shipwalker - Thank you. I'm excited to see Postmodern Jukebox. I almost went to their concert near me, but I'm glad I didn't since I'll see them on the ship. Do they do just one show? We saw a show of BBC Earth last year on the Zuiderdam. I wonder if it is the same one with the orchestra playing. Do they still have the BB King Room and the Duo Pianos every night?
  15. We will be sailing October 9, 2019. I read some posts that there is no longer singing and dancing shows on board. Is this accurate on the Zuiderdam? What do they have at night?
