  1. we were disappointed with all the Caribbean menus for this cruise. We ate at Sel de Mer twice and Canalleto 3 times. They now post a 2 pm MahJongg get together every day. Lots of people showed up every day. Great that they added it to the daily bulletin. I hope that this is fleet wide.
  2. I think HAL now has Dufry run all their shops. They are in a lot of ports especially where Carnival has made a fake port.
  3. I have used a regular TA and also an airline one where I can get up to 70K miles. Figuring at 2.5C a mile If purchased it's often better that the discount my TA gives me. I have also gotten OBCs and free tips incl. It pays to look around and get several quotes. The airline agent told me she books for most airlines and box stores and other travel sources. The miles can vary depending on the airline.
  4. there is no comparison between HAL and Seabourn. I would take S in a NY minute
  5. we usually can get the same time every night but not the same table for our entire cruise.We always tell Mairte D' if we are doing specialty the next night.
  6. Princess makes a big deal out of a superbowl party. Hal not so much. Best action will be at the main stage. Check you daily program to find out more about it.
  7. It always depends on who you ask. If you don't get the Mariner credit just go to the purser at the front desk. They will always help.
  8. I have noticed that fewer people join the roll call. This may be because there are so many Mariners and they really don't need to get port info from others .I used to have the cd, hotel mgr and even the captain drop in for a q&a. A few times the ship provided mimosas and bloodys free of charge.
  9. the Neptune is 2X the space of a veranda and we occasionally book one but it needs to be a good deal discount. The veranda or vista is fine for most cruises. We would rather have extra cruises than pay for a bigger cabin.
  10. If you go to the lower dining room around 8 pm you will have your choice of many tables. It usually empties well before that.
  11. I only print the first page and the luggage tags. The rest is just boiler plate and wastes paper and ink.
  12. we got our cabin today and it's near the bow. We usually take an aft but chose the guarantee this time. Ship is sold out so no changes but there is a Pinnacle available for $4000 more so I guess it's for each one of us. Passed.
  13. I've gotten both zpm & zpn credits from past cruises when booking a new one. Have they dropped one of the credits as each person received $100 OBC.
  14. we use the table in the cabin and do not eat on the balcony
  15. On Seabourn they offer bottles for your cabin at no extra charge. All drinks included at the bars. I just wish HAL had a better selection of rums when sailing in the Caribbean.
