Well, the Dutch as a whole seem to speak English better than the English

"At least they speak the language".
It was a joke. Actually, I am pretty good in the "Romance" languages.
And, BTW, I do appreciate your knowledge and wisdom you provide
on CC. I have learned much from you. Thank you


P.S. Choice Air for Celebrity told me that the flights
end and begin in the same terminal. The person who booked us said that
the airlines would not do this if it was not "do-able". This is a first for us
and I realize that anything can happen, even with 5 hour layovers.


We had an opportunity to do a REALLY short layover in AMS of

only a 1 hour layover and that freaked me out, even though

the cost and the variables were very appealing.

Both of these statements are true.

But making the connection is not guaranteed, different people have different levels of stress and risk tolerance, and the consequences of misconnecting may be greater for some journeys than for others. So it's a matter of personal choice.

Yes, thank you. At least these are flights are connected and purchased
together.

I did not "do my own thing" and purchase two separate flights because they
looked good. For example, I was tempted to book an Alaska flight to Oakland to get on a
Norwegian flight because they fly non-stop to Rome. That would have been way
too risky for us. I also read that Norwegian does not "play well with others" and if we
missed it, then it would have been interesting making a flight to Rome in a timely manner.


P.S. Thx for your flying wisdom as well.
