  1. We will be on the Koningsdam next month `and one of our port stops is Amber Cove. I am looking at the Dominican Coffee:A Local Experience excursion. Any thoughts or reviews or suggestions? Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the info! I have called Southwest, Holland America and the company that actually provides the service but no one can explain why Southwest is not included for flights after 6pm- makes no sense. The only non stop flight available for us is 7:30pm.
  3. Sadly we are flying Southwest and I don’t think they allow flights after 6pm
  4. We are cruising on the Koningsdam in February. We have always used a luggage direct program so we did not have to deal with our luggage after disembarkation. Unfortunately we have a late flight out of FLL-7:30pm. Will we still be able to use this program with this late flight?
  5. Thanks so much for the link to your photos and review!!! Did you reserve your guide privately before your cruise? Any recommendations on private excursions?
  6. We will be on the Koningsdam in February and one of our port stops is Amber Cove. I am interested in the HAL excursion Damajagua Adventure: Waterfalls, Canyon and Cavern Swimming. We are a couple in our late 60’s and enjoy hiking but am concerned about the difficulty of this excursion. Advice, thoughts, suggestions? Thanks!
  7. Thanks so much for all the input!
  8. We will be stopping at Bonaire in February while on the Koningsdam. There is a ship excursion with a 2 stop snorkel trip. I am wondering how this compares with some private excursions. Any thoughts?
  9. We will be stopping in Bonaire in February - our cruise ships offers a snorkeling excursion using Sea Cow. But I have read so many great reviews about Woodwind. Any thoughts or comparisons about these two excursions? Thanks for your help!
  10. That is very disappointing especially since there are cabins both above and below. We were on deck 7 last year and had no noise problems.What kind of noises.We are booked in cabin 6118 this time and now I am concerned.
  11. Is it possible to use Carnival Corp gift cards to pay for a portion of our upcoming HAL cruise? We would like to use some of our credit card reward points which allow us to buy these gift cards. We would of had to book directly with the credit card travel department to initially use the points but prefer booking with our personal TA.
  12. Thanks for your help! Sorry-I forgot to mention it is Port Everglades.
  13. We will be on the Koningsdam in February 2020. Does this ship still offer a luggage direct option at the end of the cruise so we don’t have to deal with our luggage?
  14. I am about to book a cruise on the Koningsdam - what are the differences between a veranda cabin and vista suite? The descriptions on the website seem so similar.
  15. We sailed on the Koningsdam last winter for our first HAL experience and really enjoyed it. My one major disappointment was the cleanliness of the retreat cabanas especially the curtain dividers. Any recent experiences and opinions?
