mathieu, i am a bit red-faced; i intended to reply to your very kind personal email, but somehow hit the wrong key and deleted you.
i am old enough to be your dad, and grew up in the file-folder generation. when you dropped the file on the floor, it wasn't gone for good. now, i would like to respond to you, so why not write me a little personal e so i'll have something to hang on to and get back to you? besides, might i suggest you post your inquiry on the holland america site, or perhaps 'cruise destinations,' or 'all things cruising' or may even chit-chat for cruisers. i am no cm staff member, and sometimes these folks get a bit testy about posting on what they consider an inappropriate site. let me hear from you, and we'll talk; i have 20 cruises on hal, including a ny to montreal cruise a couple of years ago. hope they don't delete this, so you can get the message. peace. doug
