  1. My TA was able to get us a complimentary upgrade from an interior to an ocean view because of a price drop after final payment. I was willing to pay for an upgrade, but that would have resulted in a loss of perks to go to any category higher than an ocean view.
  2. When we disembarked in Copenhagen on another cruise line, we received the same message. However, when we disembarked, albeit early, there were plenty of taxis available.
  3. As of last night, the availability I had seen is back and process are a couple of hundred dollars less per person, so maybe it was a price adjustment going on behind the scenes.
  4. I think the website might be having issues as there were a number of cabins on the Veendam in July that we're still available and all categories are all now showing sold out. Seems unlikely that all those cabins would be booked over the course of a few hours.
  5. I brought something similar on the Koningsdam last summer without any issues. This is likely a dual voltage device. If so, if you bring a plug adaptor for the 220 outlet, you'll free up the other outlets that you might need.
  6. So disappointed by this revelation. Just to clarify, this means I can bring my catapult as long as I leave my slingshot at home, right? 😉
  7. I'm a little alarmed that HAL needed to declare that catapults are not allowed. 😉
  8. Flight ease allowed for a lot of flexibility. I was able to start my flights from any airport and select a number of airports to fly home from after the cruise. We're taking a cruise from Venice to Barcelona, but decided to spend some time in Switzerland after the cruise and Flight Ease gave me the option to select Zurich as my return airport to depart from to head home.
  9. That's awesome and the way it used to be before they started calling it the fountain soda card.
  10. I'd it simply being poured from a can or are you being given the can?
  11. I wish you could use the card towards cans like in the past. That's the only reason I'm hesitating in buying the card as I don't know how good the fountain stuff will taste.
  12. We were supposed to dock last dinner on the Koningsdam, but were bumped by a larger ship and weren't notified until once onboard of the change. Even so, I think you'll be fine. The problem really is with the tires having priority to get passengers to the early morning trains.
  13. Looks nice. Thanks for posting the pics.
  14. I've been cruising in Europe twice a year for the past few years. Almost everything can be purchased with a credit card; just make sure that you have one that does not charge foreign transaction fees. For Euros, which are useful for street vendors, small items, etc., your best bet is to use an ATM to withdraw the money as the exchange rate will be better and you won't need to pay any transaction fees. An alternative is to check with your bank or local AAA to pick up a small amount of money, but note you'll pay a 10-20% charge in conversion costs.
  15. I'm curious, too, as I'll be aboard the Veendam in July. However, given that the drydock was so short, I doubt anything was done with regards to her layout. There simply wasn't enough time for that. Hopefully, though, they were able to freshen her up with some new softgoods and fixed the elevator situation.
