  1. Suggestion: Tell the band leader, you would like to listen to their music, yet it is way too loud. It is difficult for musicians on stage with monitors behind them to judge volume in the room. Go to the source and provide feedback. I feel bad for folks who leave a music event due to volume that they would enjoy hearing. It's OK to tell the band! If you do not feel comfortable, have the bartender pass them a note. Would be nice if the first set was played at a much quieter level for those who want that. Personally, the volumes were not that bothersome for me; yet would be fine if it was lower.
  2. Thank you for posting!! Looking forward to the when & where and menu postings. Happy to hear you had a nice sailing.
  3. I tried to book a Private Sale cruise. No luck!! First finding out “only the bolded dates are applicable” in the brochure. When I requested the bold dates.. prices were still higher. I was told to call back the reservation department. Odd as I was calling the reservation department!! Have better luck booking through the big box TA than directly with HA.
  4. Hoping someone will try to upgrade to elite and post here. Is that possible with the new pricing?
  5. sigh.. Wonder what is happening to the Westy??
  6. Would be great if they added the Tamarind!!
  7. Lovely photos!! Enjoy your cruise.. Hope to meet you on the high seas some day over a cup of split pea soup..Dank U.. Tot Ziens
  8. Frozen drinks?? Go radical.. request a spoon!!
  9. A bottle of wine or Champagne delivered to the stateroom on embarking is nice. The flowers were previously recommended and were very nice on our last cruise. A day at the spa or the thermal access to the whirlpools. A gift brought on prior to departure with a nice card. They will not have cards on board. Hope you have a wonderful celebration!! Congratulations!!
  10. Thank you for your enjoyable reports.. such interesting ports!! Looking forward to your upcoming cruise notes
  11. Thank you for taking us along. Wonderful report!! Welcome Home!!
  12. your (family members) should pay for upgraded services; or not partake .. you have paid and they have not. Tip for room service is not included for you.. or your other guests. Not sure if you can order multiple meals for one room to include other rooms.. if they allow it.. tip accordingly
  13. Not sure about the shuttle service at the Wyndham Super 8 at the airport. You will be very far from any Seattle sights and nothing to do at a SEA airport hotel. You may want to take the light rail downtown (much closer to terminal) and an Uber to the terminal. Not sure how mobile or active your are? Another suggestion is to stay in the neighborhood of Magnolia or Queen Anne.. which is north of town and much closer to ship terminal.
  14. Club Orange room service is definitely expanded. Thanks for sharing the room service menu... Enjoying your review.. .. Keep having an awesome time cruising!
  15. Thank you for your review and adding all the menus, daily schedules and photo. Is there an expanded Club Orange breakfast menu for room service? Really enjoying your review.
