  1. Bo, Click on link below: https://www.travelagewest.com/Travel/River-Cruise/Top-4-River-Cruise-Lines-for-Vegetarians The title says vegetarian, but vegan options are discussed, especially on AMA. Given that you're a Celebrity ocean cruiser, I think AMA or Uniworld would be a good fit for you. As you said, bon appetite and bon voyage! Roz
  2. I was going to say the same thing. Vegan isn't the same as vegetarian. Roz
  3. I've never heard of HAL charging solos double for HSC. I've done many solo cruises. Roz
  4. If someone isn't on top of their checking account, or has a low post count, why does that make them a troll? They probably haven't come back because of the diatribe in this thread. Roz
  5. I've not done any river cruises in France, but I'm sure they're wonderful. I suggested the Rhine because you get to see 4 countries - the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland, and the section will all the castles is very scenic. Roz
  6. Avg. temps in Tampa in January are 53 - 71, so not exactly beach weather unless you're from Canada or Minnesota., or just want to walk on the beach. Roz
  7. Hi Bo. I think I recognize you from the Celebrity board. I've done 3 cruises on Uniworld in 3 different classes of cabins, including a suite with a butler. Going forward, unless there's special sale or promotion, I'm going to book the "aquarium class" cabins on the lower floor. They have a skinny horizontal window that runs along the top of the outside wall at the waterline. I got to see what goes on with the underside of a duck. 🦆 😄 As was already mentioned, your days will be filled with tours. In the evening, there's dinner, maybe some entertainment and/or drinks in the lounge, and then it's back to your cabin to get ready for the next day's activities. You're not going to spend much time in your cabin, unlike ocean cruises where you're sitting out on your balcony for hours on sea days. The people who post in this forum are very friendly and willing to share information about their river cruising experiences, so ask away. I recommend the Rhine as a beginner's cruise. Roz
  8. I recommend the Nova Hotel at Nieuwezids Voorburgwal 276. Very reasonably priced and centrally located. It's on a major transit line, and is within walking distance of Centraal Station. Just 2 blocks away from Old Town. I just did a quick check, and they have NO AVAILABILITY in May. Spring is peak season in the Netherlands. Good luck finding something reasonable. Yikes! Roz
  9. If I'm not mistaken, the Noordam, Oosterdam, Westerdam, and Zuiderdam (sailed them all) were built on the Spirt-class platform. All great ships. Loved the bad acid trip comment, given it's the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. I like the Farcus décor. After all, they're the fun ships. Roz
  10. Sailed on the Spirit to Hawaii and went to Alaska on the Miracle. I'll be on the Miracle again next January to do the Panama Canal. The size and layout of the Spirit class are perfect. Roz
  11. I wasn't expecting a bargain on the Nashville to San Diego leg, but I thought I could snag something halfway decent on the FLL to Nashville return trip. Roz
  12. I'm pleased to see all these good reports on Gate 1. Roz
  13. Of course they went live at 10:35 am when I was in a meeting with someone. Grrr.... Managed to book my flights, but paid more than I wanted to. Will keep watching for fare drops. Roz
