  1. We cancelled today and were told it was going to take 60 days for refund back to the card that it was put on. Reasonable since the amount of bookings that they must have!
  2. who did you contact? We were to be there on May 1 and were told we would have to wait until that date to see if they were going to be open. If they were open and construction has resumed, we would not receive a refund. I just want to get this entire trip taken care of with refunds, cancellations,etc. and move on.
  3. i did this once, but was really disappointed in the outcome. I did a vase, wanted a specific color, which we had discussed, and it came out totally different! waste of money in my opinion. you cannot do a nice piece of glass blowing in 15 minutes! I think we had some OBC, so some of the cost was from that, but I would never do again.
  4. We think that HA is better, especially the buffet, where HA will serve the portions out(cleaner) and we like the different stations that HA has--at least on Koningsdam (newer ship). not sure about HA older ships and how they have it set up. MDR is almost equal. Specialty restaurants, HA has the edge. We really enjoy both lines for different reasons. Service is excellent 97% of time on both!!
  5. thank you so much! I have been on 2 long cruises recently with Celebrity and was tired of the same thing!! This will be perfect for our next adventure!!
  6. Here is the deck plans for koningsdam from the holland america website-- https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/cruise-ships/ms-koningsdam/1.html
  7. http://www.cdc.gov/travel and then you can put in your destination and then you can see what is recommended and if their are any mandated vaccines.
  8. We will be flying into Melbourne for 4 nights pre-cruise and need to get to Sydney and spend 4 nights there before embarking on a cruise. Best way to get there? What airline would be best? Not familiar with the airlines? Reliable and on time would be good!! Thank you in advance!
  9. Thank you! This is great to hear! We booked it for 4 nights, then we are flying to Sydney and staying there for 4 nights, then embarking on a cruise! As part of our booking, we get free breakfast at the Alto! We also plan on doing a tour of the great ocean road, but just an all day tour! Any ideas on where to stay in Sydney? We were thinking maybe an airbnb with 2 bed/2 bath for 4 adults, or a hotel, but have not done enough research yet to know where we want to be.
  10. How was your stay at Alto on Bourke?
