  1. If you are in a Signature Suite (SY) or above, then yes, otherwise no.
  2. Are you driving a rental car to Civitavecchia yourselves or taking a transfer? A private transfer is about 75 minutes and a shared shuttle could take up to 2 hours depending on if you are first pick up or last! A private transfer will take you directly to the specific terminal being used by Koningsdam that day. The terminals vary and are a long walk (or shuttle bus drive) from the port gates. Suggest you purchase water, wine and sodas on your last evening in Rome as there are no shops/markets close to the terminal n Civitavecchia.
  3. Tipping is not required, nor necessary. If you feel that you must 'tip' in a restaurant or taxi then just round the bill up. Make sure that a 'service charge' has not already been applied to the bill. Ignore 'Tip Jars' on coffee bar counters etc.
  4. Afternoon Tea is served between 3pm and 3.45pm daily. Finger sandwiches, scones and pastries, served with tea or coffee. High Tea (which would include HOT food) is not served.
  5. I don't believe that this is quite accurate. I think you purchased a 'Gurarantee Oceanview' room, which is slightly different. I have never seen a HAL offer of 'room with guarantee'.
  6. They can't spell 'Welcome' either! Just as well there wasn't an Irish Captain on K'dam - that would have been real fun!
  7. Sometimes, the law can be an ass (or at least a miniature horse!)
  8. Suntransfers appear to be agents and do not run their own transport fleet. Their website shows transfers from 400 + airports. This would be the first warning signal. As CruiserBruce says, where did you get information about them? Did you read any of the numerous suggestions and recommendations for reputable companies shown on this forum?
  9. You are joking, yes? That is a perfect description of being a chair hog. Leave it and lose it!
  10. Of course you can! But you will probably end up in the 'galley' (and I don't mean the kitchen!)
  11. Hidden or on display? How did they know you had a gold chain around your neck?
  12. Perhaps if ships confirmed that air con stayed running without a card, then pax would desist from this practice.
  13. Nothing to do with HAL and more to do with travel agent or indeed personal responsibility. Did you read the policy that you purchased? Perhaps your travel agent said something like "Do you want to purchase HAL's cancellation insurance?" as it is offered at booking.
