  1. Unless things have changed, its cheaper once you cross the 7 mile limit. No tax.
  2. I’m a bit hesitant to say this, but I’m very happy that as many photos were taken of my wife and I especially during the early years. Like some other folks here, I lost her two years ago. We are usually not professional photographers, and some of the photos taken and purchased by us are priceless, at least to me.
  3. We are in 7134 on Koningsdam in another month. Appears to be the same design which is why I booked it. Booked the same cabin last year but took a $600 upgrade to a Signature Suite about 3 weeks out.
  4. So I did a dummy booking on one of the Best online sites. Cabin 7073 $7630 inc. tax and gratuities $500 OBC Looks better to me. Possibly I’m missing something?
  5. Have never booked direct with any cruise line. Or the big box. There are numerous sites on the net to check pricing. A little research can save a lot of money. I tend to book about a year prior to the sailing as am admittedly picky about the cabin and location.
  6. I do believe that I see what you did there😇
  7. Would book the Veendam in a minute if HAL hadn’t destroyed the stern pool.
  8. Good to know. Do you book thru them?
  9. Guess I am the outlier. My hearing is still good. Loved it. Its rock ‘n roll😁
  10. Certainly not true for the Feb 12 sailing of the Koningsdam. Pricing more than double what I paid for a Cat V.
  11. You could be me. USN, Retired
  12. Gotcha. Obviously missed that ☹️
  13. As I tend to book about a year out, it is early enough to allow me to follow my general rule. Cabins above, cabins below, no connecting cabins. Greatly improved chances of avoiding noise issues.
  14. Sail, just wanted you to know that I appreciate the invaluable information I’ve gotten from you over the years. As I recall, we both migrated to CC about the same time when another board shut down. As a newbie, I knew very little except that I was looking forward to being back at sea. You and a few other long time HAL cruisers never failed to help.
