Re: Tennis courts on Westerdam?

checked out the deck plans and Windy City is right - no tennis courts.

Even on the ships that have them, I believe they are only practice courts.

Re: half moon cay/ coco cay

No, they are not the same. I have no idea what Coco Cay is, but Half Moon Cay is known on the maps as Little San Salvador.

Some people prefer Starboard and some Port.

Re: transportation from FLL to HAL port

Take a taxi - it will only cost you about $10.00 + tip and is by far the fastest and easiest way to get there. There are lots of taxis right outside the baggage claim area.

Re: Tuxedo rental, please help, ASAP

Re: Thanksgiving Cruise

Yes, HAL goes all out for Thanksgiving - turkey, cranberry, stuffing, pumpkin pie. We have sailed a few times at American Thanksgiving and enjoyed it - being Canadians, we get to celebrate twice.

Re: Re: HAL Perks

To get early board and disembarkations, you must have been in a Suite, because in my 22 years of sailing with HAL, I have never received this.

Re: When/how to adjust tip? Does word go out if you tip pers

If you remove the $10.00 per day from the room chit, then anything you give the stewards has to be turned in by them to be put in the pool.

Re: Volendam Cat S

I'm not sure, but I believe S Suites have DVD players. Why not phone Ship's Services 1-800-541-1576 and ask them, although half the time they don't know the answer either.
