  1. Having heard how fantastic aft balconies were, we snagged one for a 7 day Caribbean cruise. Huge balcony, no soot, no vibration NO BREEZE. We could only tolerate the heat for 30 minutes at a time. We now do balconies on the side where you get the cooling breeze to make it useable.
  2. Maybe things have changed, but 10 years ago we spent two weeks in Ireland on a road vacation. We had no problem finding bed and breakfasts whenever we felt like stopping for the night. The homes woukd have signs in front advertising. We stayed in dublin, right on McConnel st. About 3 miles from the tourust part of town. Bus line right in front.
  3. I would recommend you use the hop on hop off bus. You can visit multiple historical sites for a very low price.
  4. Thanks for the info. I did a little more research and found Rotterdam is getting up in years. We have decided to sail on the nieuw Statendam.
  5. Am looking at a 14 day norway cruise. Bith ships have basically the same itenerary. Staatendam is about $500 more per person. Is it worth it?

  7. We have always booked directly through the cruise line, but thanks to CC am going to try a big box TA. I can find the early booking bonus on the HA site, but not on the big box TA site. Do I have to book it through HA then transfer it to the Big box TA or is it more likely that the promotion is simply delayed for a while before the TA's get it?
  8. Went with a buddy on an Alaska cruise. He and wife are still not internet savvy. Pre cruise, doctored up a weather forecast for Alaska of gail force winds and temps of minus ten. Told him dress warmly. First port, Ketchikan, temps in the high 80’s. He is dressed in long underwear, top and bottom, two pairs of jeans, thick shirt, heavy sweater and coat. Especially funny when he needed to pee. We still laugh about it.
  9. Holland america also goes to glacier bay. Smaller ships so oerhaps less walking? The holland ships i have been on also seem to get the parking spots closest to the main parts of town.
  10. If you scroll to page two there is a thread titled norway cruise q&a. I have been following it and the gentleman lives in Norway and will answer questions. Very informative.
  11. But be careful, they expire. I think as each point turns 5 years old you lose them.
  12. I’m pretty standard with hardliqour, so I stick to the virgen strawberry margaritas, and banana daqueries.
  13. Can’t help with all the questions, but can do a few issues. Been on several lines and several ships. Food is subjective, but for the most part, the dining room and buffets are more similar than different. ALL ships shut down at some point. Even on carnival booze cruises, not all bars are open all the time. But at least one or two bars stay open until 2 or so. Same with casinos. I was on a carnival cruise and 5 of us were playng black jack, and winning quite often when about 2:30 they called last shoe and kicked out. your boys should be able to find somewhere to hang out with other night owls without any problem, but probably not till 5am. And that would be on just about any ship.
