Re: Antwerp to Basel - July 2004

Re: Photos of Diamond Princess Mini-Suite

Harry--

Glad to know the carpet was fine in your cabin. Golly, our carpet at home is almost 4 years old and not industrial quality. We live and walk on it daily and I think it's got a few more...

Re: Photos of Diamond Princess Mini-Suite

Re: Re: Re: Antwerp to Basel - July 2004

Veronica--

I emailed a response to you, but thought I'd answer on the board as well. The docks that Viking was using last summer in Antwerp for the Viking Sky were Kattendijkdok and Willemsdok. ...
