  1. Our very first HAL cruise was the entire 2018 World Cruise. Had a fabulous time. Had a resident drawing instructor named Benjamin Sack who did a "live" 6 foot by 8 foot pen & ink drawing of this voyage while in his stateroom. We got the half-size print which you can see in the attached photo.
  2. And don't forget to book Dolly on the Zaandam ASAP so she can break in the new WC crew if the Amsterdam crew can't be reassigned. 😉
  3. Saw this on CNN. EU considering travel ban on US citizens. https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/23/politics/eu-us-coronavirus-travel/index.html
  4. Nice pictures. Your post may inspire us to re-post photos for our 25-day sailing from Houston to Antwerp on the Rickmers Jakarta in 2017. Our original pictures were posted with TinyPics which went out of business and all the photos that were with our CC trip write-up in the Freighter Cruising board were deleted.
  5. Well, for what it's worth, he was very personable & friendly to us when we had a private chat onboard the 2018 GWC. Too bad he's getting all these negative comments. You gotta break some eggs to make an omelette. 😉
  6. Well, in our Chevrolet (actually a Lexus ES 350 F-Sport), we'll continue driving/hiking to the 36 or so land-based points where at least three states meet. We've done the Four Corners , Texas/Arkansas/Louisiana, Alabama/Georgia/Tennessee & Kentucky/Virginia/Tennessee.
  7. OK, for better or worst, we purchased 200 shares of Carnival Corporation stock. We know about the per stateroom OBC perks of $50 for cruises of 6 days or less, $100 for cruises of 7-13 days, and $250 for cruises of 14 days and longer. Any other recent or promotional perks that HAL guests enjoy other than the OBC? Thanks in advance.
  8. It'll be interesting to see how the occupancy of the elevators is affected by the six-foot social separation protocol, if that will be part of the future of cruising -- especially as a condition of cruising before the July 24th CDC No-Sail Order.
  9. So, if the HHS Secretary does not expire the declaration of public emergency, then there's option (2) "The CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific health or other considerations;" What if, in order for HAL to resume sailing before the July 24th No-Sail date, the CDC insists that the passengers wear masks in the public areas -- like the airlines are starting to do? Would you sail if you had to wear a mask outside your stateroom?
  10. Hmmm, curious as to how HAL and other lines are going to start sailing in July before the CDC July 24th 'No-Sail' date. Must be fierce negotiations going on.
  11. But...when I did still another test booking of the July 17, 2020 Voyage of the Vikings, it was back on for sale.
  12. When I did a test booking of our July 17, 2020 Voyage of the Vikings on the HAL website yesterday, it looked like it was still a go. But just a few minutes ago, when I again did a test booking of this cruise, there were no Voyage of the Vikings cruises (whole or segments) and nothing available from Boston to Europe.
  13. If Holland America starts to require such medical authorization to sail, it will pretty much put an end to their Grand Voyages, like the World Cruise, Grand Asia, the South America/Antarctica and other similar sailings. Sigh......
  14. We miss those little rolled-up towels in the public restrooms.
