  1. We are looking at using HAL post cruise in Venice due to not wanting to drage luggage across town. Does anyone have any experience with the Hotels there? 😎
  2. On a land/sea cruisetour we were not charges gratuities. Were given info on our docs on who tip and how much (suggested).
  3. Can you fit a purse and a backpack under the seat?
  4. Thank You! BTW, how was the temperature in the Westerdam MDR?
  5. We are doing the Land first in a couple weeks. Where is the best place to purchase souvenoirs, specifically knives, totem poles (small), and canned salmon. Thank you
  6. I asked HAL aboot the TVs. They have no jacks and are not bluetooth capable. On an a feed several people said the use baby monitors to hear the announcements on the TV, I found one on Azon. VTech DM111 Audio Baby Monitor with up to 1,000 ft of Range, 5-Level Sound Indicator, Digitized Transmission & Belt Clip ($19). We are going to use it on our upcoming Alaska cruise, hopefully it works.
  7. We love the adt facing rooms, the verehdah is longer, partially covered. I attached pics of the deck. Here is a link to the way the room looked in 2016. http://halfacts.com/vista-class/4181-Oosterdam/
  8. Is there a place to purchase salmon on the inside passage cruise and then ship to to California?
  9. I always told my Sailors to take a draminine the night before and then the morning the day before getting underway if we had been i port for a while or if they were new to sea duty. Better safe than sorry. None ever got seasick... except the one that thought he was too macho (spent the day in sick bay).
  10. If you call HAL or have your TA call you can work something out, like Cruiser Bruce stated. We won a cruise in a on board raffle, it was for an inside cabin on a caribbean cruise. HAL used it as money against a Panama Canal cruise.
  11. They own the Westmark, Mckinley Chalet Resort. It is where you will be on a HAL Cruise/Tour. You will be given the choice to upgrade to a Jr. Suite, otherwise you will be given assignment on theway to Denali. https://www.westmarkhotels.com/destinations/denali-hotel/ https://www.hollandamerica.com/content/dam/hal/marketing-assets/manage-my-cruise-already-booked/faqs/Tour_Tips.pdf Enjoy!
  12. Were are taking a med cruise in 2020. Does anyone know who HAL uses in Rome and Venice? I would rather book on our own but Spouse want to use HAL.
  13. We are choosing the Zuiderdam for the May Med cruise because of the itinerary. We have cruised on her before and had no issues with the ship.
