Default ist time HAL , Noordam August 5th solo cruiser w/questions!

Hi! Any other singles going on this trip? I've not travlelled HAL before, a few questions. Can you bring your own wine/spirits on board from the ports...what happens then...you bring to your room or do they take it and you need to get it back by paying a corkage fee? How much? Also, travelling solo with HAL, I'm a "young" 46 year old female...anyone had a similar experience, and how was it? Many/any singles events? Texas Holdem played in the casino? Any suggestions for shore excursions? What are the wine prices like on the menu (Yes, I'm a wino!) Leaving from Rome...any time there on the day coming/going? Anything else I should know?

Many many thanks in advance! Sandra

I haven't tried personally to bring booze onboard, but have read that you can bring on wine, but not spirits and you pay a corkage fee. As for shore excursions, the key is to research what interests you and to talk to other passengers. Some may have visited before and have recommendations, or if you make friends on the cruise, you may want to join them on whatever interests them...also on some destinations it is interesting to skip the excursion and just go into the local town and poke about. I am going on another HAL cruise about the same time you are on your cruise and we are not much older...I am sure you will have a great time and find some compatible friends onboard.
