  1. It is a 1300 meters walk. A taxi will (in my opinion) drive you to the other side of the Centraal Station for between € 7,50 and € 12,50. See the website of Passenger Terminal Amsterdam: How to access PTA? - Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (ptamsterdam.com) You will see (in the reverse direction!) that public transport is another possibility.
  2. We could not have dinner or lunch together..... 😉 Lenny
  3. As far as I understand, HAL still intends to start cruising from Amsterdam as from July 1st/2nd. And out government still hopes most inhabitants will be vaccinated by that date (keep fingers crossed).
  4. Waiting for our rebooked May 2021 sailing, 13 months to go and I trust HAL will give us the previous incentives.
  5. You are right and I didnot forget this. Our booking for 2022 (original booking for 2020) is with children and 2 grandchildren who will be almost 15 and 12 1/2 years in 2022. In my opinion I cannot do otherwise than "wait and see".
  6. Absolutely what I realised too (but do not wish to take that into account....yet). Boosters before embarkation seems simpler.
  7. Yes, but please notice that (in my opinion)you better be carefull not to listen to taxi "runners" at Schiphol airport, but go to the taxi stand (or the hotel shuttle....).
  8. Of course you can: see Ine´s post. And quite a few taxi´s available at the cruise terminal upon arrival.
  9. In August 22 it could be a little bit different: Website of the hotel: "You will find the Connexxion Shuttle Service desk in arrival hall number 4, Schiphol Plaza. Please hand them the address of the hotel. The ticket will cost you € 17 for a one way ticket and € 27 for a round trip ticket. TYhe shuttle makes several stops at other hotels. The ride will take 35-45 minutes. You can find the information on the website of Connexxion Shuttle Service." This is the info: Tickets & reservations Once you land at the airport, you can purchase tickets at the Connexxion desk (next to Arrivals 4) or at the Holland Tourist Information desk (by Arrivals 2). You can also proceed directly to the shuttle bus stop A7 by following the “Hotel Shuttles” signs and purchase a ticket from one of the drivers. You never have to wait longer than 30 minutes for the next shuttle to depart. Discounts are available for groups of 3 to 8 travellers and children. The return trip from Amsterdam back to the airport must be confirmed at your hotel’s reception desk at least two hours before departure. Enjoy your stay and cruise.
  10. Just found this thread and DH and I had many good laughs. And you all must know we need that as much as everybody those days 😉
  11. I am always curious what the fun can be of trolling. Competitors? People who do not have anything else to do in life than upsetting others? People who want attention they cannot get otherwise?
  12. I am with DH, daughters, son-in-law and grandchildren..... and keep fingers crossed.
  13. So the ways of "selling the Eiffeltower" continue?
  14. That's correct! October 24th, 2015 on m.s. Rotterdam VI Hellenic & Anatolia Explorer...
