  1. Prior to boarding the Zaandam for Antarctica we went to Patagonia . Talk about social distancing , we didn't see a gas station for 3 hours driving from the airport to our first stop . And what a stop it was .

    This was only our 3rd cruise on HAL and our first trip to Alaska and it was a spur of the moment decision . We had said goodbye to the Eurodam as it left our closest cruise port in Ft. Lauderdale headed to Alaska .

    @scubacruiserx2 hope your upcoming TA goes as planned. We were supposed to be heading south for a week in Key West at about the same time as your sailing. I’m sad to say that trip is not happening this year. We’re going to try again next year. Hopefully, we will be able to make it happen, as we have been wanting to get there for quite a while.  🤞🏻 
     

    Koningsdam docked at Amber Cove.

    Hi Nancy , here's hoping  . It kinda feels like hurricane season . We'll pray for the best , prepare for the worse and carry on . That's a cute little turtle .

    I wish you well!

    If (and it is a big 'if') you do arrive to Cork please note that you are listed for docking in Ringaskiddy and not Cobh.  Ringaskiddy is a deep water berth in a commercial port used by freighters, ferries and container ships and has absolutely horrible connections to anywhere.  Really suggest ship excursion or pre arranged private excursion with confirmation that the tour will be from Ringaskiddy.

     

    Thanks for your response and information . We will let our guide know . Would that port be closer to the Ring of Kerry which is where we were planning to go ?
