  1. I have posted a couple of questions and have received an email back saying that the question was already asked and answered on another thread. If, for example, I wanted to find out what the buffet was like on Princess, I would search "Princess buffet" but yet I cannot get the information. What am I doing wrong? Thanks
  2. I’m wondering what is provided on HAL in the inside cabins? Shampoo, soap, skin care lotion? Last year I was on a different cruise line and the ship only provided shower gel, i.e. no shampoo or skin care lotion.
  3. Does anyone know what the earliest time is that I can start to check-in with Holland America in the Vancouver Port? This is my first time with Holland! Thanks
  4. 1) Did not pay for any visa at all.... $0 2) Entertainment is so-so, but I was ok just reading, hanging out, etc. I met some great people on the cruise and hung out them a lot. I was ready to get off ship after 5 days, but at the same time, I did enjoy the relaxed, nothing to do, kind of days. 3) As far as the tours go, they are overpriced. Smart people did their own tours once they got off ship. Taxi's everywhere offering you better tours at a quarter of the price. I loved Jordan. Petra is about the only one I'd do with a tour, and even then I'm not sure. To get into Petra the cost if I remember correctly, is $70 Cad. 4) Overall, every stop had its own look. I'd recommend seeing them all, but don't do the tours. FYI: if you booked tours in advance, or if some company offered you anything, be skeptical. Pullmantur ship don't take any responsibility for anything
  5. You absolutely do not need to get any visas in advance. I met a few people on ship who had bought them in advance.......total waste of money. If you have any other questions, I'm glad to answer them.
  6. I was on the same cruise. Totally enjoyed it. You do not need to get any visas, regardless of what any visa company tells you. Cruise lines don't want to take any responsibilities for this. Some people on the cruise went ahead and got visas and ended up wasting a lot of money. If you have any questions about the cruise, let me know.
  7. I'm getting confusing answers. Nov 2018 I'm on the Pullmantur and will be going to Jordan, Oman and Egypt. Someone had said that they take care of the visa on board ship. Is this right? I'm just surprised that a cruise would get involved with visas. Where is the best place to get a visa online? Thanks
