  1. LOL - I’m with you on when cars were simple. But some of those bells and whistles are great once you get used to them. Congrats on the new car. Hope you enjoy it very much 🙂
  2. Good News! I heard from Yonnie (KK) and she hopes to be back on CC soon.
  3. Oh, that is really good news, Ann. So happy to her that 🙂 Great news indeed. So glad that your DH came through fine. Thanks for letting us know 🙂
  4. Oh it was something indeed. the larger ships had to dock further away but there we were overlooking the lovely plaza and watching people walk and play with their dogs. I am so glad we got to do this while we could. Going under the bridge has a key timing. It really was something. I took my pics leaving though, not arriving. Really incredible 😄. My pics can’t describe how wonderful it was. We were truly blessed to be on that cruise.
  5. Worked great 😉 Beautiful shot! Nice to see you posting here 😄
  6. Bordeaux is really beautiful. We were lucky enough to overnight so had two days there on the Prinsendam. The first day was spent on winery tours, sight seeing outside and a historic village and the late afternoon & evening in Bordeaux. The second day was in depth in Bordeaux. Absolutely beautiful city. and it’s a beautiful sail in and out too. We were docked downtown 🙂 unlike the larger ships 😄
  7. I found the link thanks to Scott posting it on another thread. https://gohal.com/app/uploads/2020/06/Trade-FAQ_Updated_6_11_20_Final.pdf Go to the bottom of page 4. This is actually for travel agents as I understand it but all the info is there. Hope this helps.
  8. LOL Silver, I am hardly the fount of HAL wisdom. But, yes, you can use the FCD you bought on board as your deposit. If I am understanding the terms of the FCC that is granted for cancelled cruises, it is to be used towards the cruise cost but not as the deposit to book the cruise. A couple people posted they were able to use it as a deposit but most were not able. It is confusing and messy, isn’t it? 😉
  9. The cancellation policy for HAL is here - https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/legal-privacy/cancellation-policy-US-default.html I guess I now have to say that it WAS on the HAL site. I went to look at the HAL site and don’t see the 60 day final payment window any longer? It could be me being blind, the HAL site or perhaps they amended the Cruise with Confidence plan? IIRC, the 60 day final payment window was for 2020 cruises. The Cruise With Confidence lets you cancel up to 30 days before BUT you get an FCC and have to apply for it. Cruise with Confidence is here - (be sure to expand the terms and conditions) and applies to cruises in 2021 as well as 2020 -https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/book-with-confidence.html
  10. LOL - I won’t tell anyone. You did 😄🤣😂
  11. Thanks for the Daily, Rich and our morning smile 🙂 I’ll happily celebrate Barbershop Appreciation day. So much great music. Pass on the franks and beans as DH doesn’t like franks & beans are not my cup of tea 😉 Love the quote, Rich. I don’t know how you find all of these but they are fabulous! Pomegranate sounds great but alas, none on hand. Wine sounds interesting. Must look. Hope we hear from KK today & Sharon’s son gets his test results. For today’s garden/flower time I thought I would bring you some of Bordeaux. Each winery has it’s own little private oasis where the owners can invite special friends to sample: Vineyard Some of the flowers and trees of Bordeaux:
  12. The new final payment details is on the HAL website and for your cruise it should be the 60 days. Just keep in mind that the cancellation penalties have not changed.
  13. Beautiful shots of the sunset and you gorgeous cat, Rich 🙂 Haven’t heard back from KK yet. Hopefully I hear something today 🤞 I hope he gets those test results soon and all is good, Sharon. Glad to hear he is improving.
  14. I took the video on my IPad, Roy. Wonder if that is the reason? You wouldn’t have missed much. If I ever get one where they are really jumping - now that is a video worth seeing. Even though Marley is much older he is very athletic and Miko being much younger and a poodle (don’t ever get a poodle 😉 ) is up to anything he can do and more!
