**Near-Live Blog of Zaandam Inca and South America Cruise 24 Sep - 3 Nov 2018**

Recommended Posts

Just catching up and will follow along. I can see the photos now as well. What a trip! Maybe letting us tag along will convince me to book a similar trip in the future for hubby & I-we need to branch out on a longer cruise.

Can you explain how the Tripmate works? Are you able to share one internet package? That could be quite a savings!

I finally logged on to wish you an official Bon Voyage!

 

I am NOT showing this to Ian as he will expect one under the Christmas tree!! But his pictures and videos on a much older version are very clear...even when dumping the canoe and under the water. :rolleyes:

 

We are looking forward to following along. Enjoy!

I have to say: If Zaandam is still as good as she was when we were on board earlier this month, you're in for a treat! The new French chef in the Pinnacle, Jean Philippe, I think his name was, was really excellent and his crepes at the Sel de Mer were to die for! Even better than Koningsdam's.:D And the Canaletto was really good, too. Even the plates were hot when brought to the table, and the daily specials were excellent. You'll want to try them all!

Not sure if you are looking for things to do, but thought I would make a note of a cool little place we ended up in in Punta Arenas, Chile. It was the Shackleton Bar, in the Braun Palace, across from the Plaza de Armas. We ended up going in and getting lunch. They had soups, empanadas, sandwiches. One of the ladies got a Pisco Sour. It was a really lovely place in a 19th century building, great atmosphere- all about Shackleton. There were a couple of other pax in at the same time. It is a tiny place. Lunch was about $8 US equivalent.

I've been thinking alot about this place as I am writing up the Punta Arenas part of my photo book and processing video from my trip in March.

Sorry for the delay, here's our travel day. :o

 

Day 1 (9/23)

 

Alarm was set for 4:30 AM wakeup but just after 4 AM I decided to get up and start a shower. Roger had stayed the night at our house for the shorter ride to the airport. I took a nice shower and by the time I got out of the bathroom, he was marching the house to distract his need to relieve himself I tried to not wake my DW but she was up too along with the dogs who were sleepily wondering why everyone was up. We did our various routines and by 5 AM we had loaded up and were on our way to the airport. Check-in there went easily and by 5:45 AM we were at the gate for our 7:15 AM flight. TSA Pre Check is nice and since I've had Global Entry, I've always gotten it (just as I'm supposed to.) Roger also had Pre Check so we were through quickly. We left the gate a couple of minutes early and in the air by 7:24 AM. The flight itself was uneventful, mostly smooth with a few bumps along the way. I found the cabin quite warm though and I wondered if they are getting rid of blankets and pillows as I never did see any of either. Also, the restroom nearest us in Delta Comfort had no water in the sink, so washing hands was reduced to a few wipes that were available but ran out after the first couple of hours. After that, no one was washing their hands.... Delta will hear about this. As for me, this flight seems to get longer each time I take it. I used to fly here weekly over several months back in my former life as a working stiff but that 6 hours seems much longer today and I had just flown there last April for an Hawai'ian cruise.

 

After an 85 mph taxi ride from the airport to our hotel, arriving there at about 11:30 AM, we were happy to be able to go straight to our room. Nice view of the NCL Pearl at pier 66 which is just a hop and a skip across the street. Taxi ran us $53 with tip. Some traffic heading to the Seahawks game slowed us down but not by much. We walked to Pike's Place Market from the hotel in less than 5 minutes, left gum on the Gum Wall and had a great meal at a place called Pasta Casalinga in the market. Tried to watch Pearl leave but she was delayed for some reason and by the time she left it was getting dark. We were in bed by 7 PM and slept soundly.

Can you explain how the Tripmate works? Are you able to share one internet package? That could be quite a savings!

 

It works like a hotspot. You sign the Tripmate into the ship's network via a control panel that you access by connecting to the wireless signal of the Tripmate. The your devices just connect to the Tripmate. Thanks, The Penguin1, for the link to it.

I have to say: If Zaandam is still as good as she was when we were on board earlier this month, you're in for a treat! The new French chef in the Pinnacle, Jean Philippe, I think his name was, was really excellent and his crepes at the Sel de Mer were to die for! Even better than Koningsdam's.:D And the Canaletto was really good, too. Even the plates were hot when brought to the table, and the daily specials were excellent. You'll want to try them all!

 

We'll be checking them all out over 40 days. Our bathroom does not have the "water is precious" sign of old. There is a sign though about reusing the towels. I'll post a photo of it later.

We have a short-ish excursion in Punta Arenas but our last stop is the Plaza de Armas. We'll look for the restaurant and check it out if we have time. Thanks for the heads-up.

My sympathies Rich for that 4 AM waking. I hate early morning flights too.

 

Glad you were able to get into your hotel room early. It makes a big difference.

 

Sounds like you had a great pre-cruise day and happy to hear it sounds like you are onboard.

 

Hope you both have a fabulous time :D.

 

And best wishes to Debbie taking care of the 2 dogs while you are gone and working. She will have her hands full, I'm sure :eek:

DW and DD are sharing the dog care thing. DD has her own 2 dogs so in addition to our 2 dogs, she's got up to a dozen cats, a snake, a hamster and a fish to care for also. So far, so good with everything!

Day 2 (9/24)

 

Got a wakeup text from my DD at 4:47 AM with the morning's cat call. 10 cats present and accounted for. Yay! She knows her grampa is an early riser so figured he'd be up at the time he says he's always up. I think I heard snoring though at the time the text came through. Anyhow, we were up! Roger jumped from bed, dressed and headed for coffee and a walk. Being that we were on the waterfront of Seattle, he had little trouble finding both. , I eventually joined him in the lobby for coffee. We had a few hours to kill before checking out and calling for a taxi and we did so with coffee and good company. We checked out at 9:30 AM via the mobile app (nice features there) and went downstairs to ask for a cab to pier 91. None was waiting so we had to wait a few minutes while one was called. We jumped in and asked to be taken to Smith Cove and were there in under 7 minutes and less than 85 mph, costing all of $15 with tip. It was before 10 AM and we found that we were the first 2 people to show up for boarding. Not open yet as they were still finishing up debarking with a few passengers. Roger was warded off from entering the building by a tiny but tenacious woman. He was cold but he wasn't going to cross her! We dropped our luggage at the front of the terminal with a pleasant man who said he did the tagging of un-tagged bags but would take ours as we were the only 2 there. For those who don't know, luggage is dropped INSIDE the building, before you head upstairs for security and check-in, explaining why you rarely see anyone OUTSIDE the building collecting luggage. At 10:30 AM, the boss of the door opened it and allowed the small group of passengers who had accumulated in. As we had already had our luggage collected, we headed upstairs as the first 2 passengers for check-in. Another first! HAL no longer collects the "faked" health questionaires asking after everyone's state of respiration and bowels. Yay! On to check-in where in addition to all the other items to collect from us, the agent had us fill out a Canadian customs form as tomorrow we dock in Vancouver. We were sent to our seats with a "Group B" boarding card by 10:40 AM and watched as the waiting area slowly began to come to life with people. "Group A" was called at 11:30 AM for boarding and "Group B" was called almost immediately thereafter as there were very few "Group A" passengers around. We were on board and in our deck 3 cabin by 11:40 AM. Yay! We found our luggage in our cabin at 2 PM after a nice lunch in the MDR. Roger had Ziti and I had the Canadian Burger. We were seated with 2 Vancouverites who were on board for the night, having taken Amtrak early the day before to Seattle as part of a short package sold to them that included the cruise back after a day in Seattle and a night at a nice hotel. Apparently these types of short getaways are highly anticipated by both Vancouverites and Washingtonians as they are rather rare but very nice but short vacations. We later met a couple who were from Seattle going to. Vancouver for the night and the train the next morning back home. Both couples planned to pack a lot of cruise ship pampering into the one night they had aboard. By time for mustard at 4:15 PM, all of our beverage cards, bourbon and scotch packages, on board credit and 4* Mariner 50% dinner reservation refunds had been delivered and applied to our accounts. We had dinner in the Lido Market which was pleasant and quite empty. We sat in an area serviced by "Jim", a lovely young lady from Thailand. Her given name is about 23 characters long and difficult to pronounce with a Western tongue, so she goes by "Jim". We never had to ask for anything as she and the rest of the staff were very attentive. In fact, the whole ship seemed empty. We found out the next day why.

 

Empty luggage carts from debarking passengers:

I'm glad your DW had help but OMG on your DD's managerie. Bless her for her fortitude to take care of all those animals and helping your DW. <3

 

Being a science teacher, she likes having different animals and such for her classroom. She used to have a tarantula, lizard of some sort and 2 chinchillas as well.

Great pics, Rich!

 

Ok, I am waiting with bated breath to find out why it was empty. ;)

 

sounds like your cruise is off to a great start with good service. I met 'Jim' on another cruise. Lovely lady. You will be well taken care of :)
