  1. Before you decide to sail with Hurtigruten, I just want to highlight their NON-REFUNDABLE deposit policy. Once you make a reservation with Hurtigruten, your deposit is not refunded, unlike the policies of all US carriers I'm familiar with. Most companies have a sliding scale chart for deposit returns, and as the sail date approaches, you receive less of your refund. I think that's fair, and I consider a non-refundable deposit confiscatory. I'm just making other people aware of their policy. As a remedy, some people have suggested that it's "buyer beware" and that people should read the fine print of the contract. Some have suggested that you purchase travel insurance, even though that's an expensive remedy to a flawed policy. Finally, you can decide whether to book a Hurtigruten cruise. I will not. Sergio
  2. On March 28, I sailed on a 10-day "Cuba Intensive" cruise with Azamara. The following video is my own interpretation of a medley of traditional songs (I play the piano by ear, it's my hobby), and the video will show you photos I took during the cruise. Some of the photos may only be of interest to me (like the house where I grew up), but the beauty of Cuba is undeniable. What a treat it was! www.sergiosongs.com Enjoy... Sergio Calderon
