Tink, my DH would love to stroll around the decks anytime of day to take pics with your DB. He has an Olympus 510 DSLR. He'd rather take pics more than just about anything except read!!!! THX. You should post a doc on our EBTA May 18 Facebook page asking for interest...

Wow, gorgeous pics! Makes me miss it so much (did a summer "semester" in Florence during undergrad).

Thanks.
Unless we get a whole lot more orders, these won't happen...we are only half way there...

I figured ppl were tired of me bugging them about it, so I hadn't posted in a few days

Holland America - 14 nights

Plus the upcoming 14 on DCL and 15 on NCL before the year is over. Looks like NCL will be in the lead by one night.

People say you start cruising more after you hit 40.... so I am looking forward to that birthday in a couple years as opposed to dreading it
Love it!

She has 143 nights on 30+ cruises...this cruise will put me over 180 nights and is my 25th....go figure!
Looks as if she prefers the shorter cruises and you like the longer ones.

Now HAL lets you earn more sea days by booking the spa, shore excusrions, the pay resteraunts and your stateroom bill.

I haven't cruised HAL since 2006 but I do miss the free laundry, such a nice perk!
Free laundry would be a fantastic perk!

It's really too bad they don't at least take those suggestions under advisement.....but oh, well, like someone else said, at least they have a program
We took our first two cruises to the MR as it was on our coast. Made the plane tickets so much better! But flying down to Florida is not cheap for us I imagine your tickets from middle America are just as bad.

The most reasonable for me is counting $, just for example $1 = 1 point, 10.000 points makes gold... And so on.

We have cruised 3-4-7-11-14 nighters.

If it would be in days cruised then it isn't fair for the others because a TA 14 nighter is the same price as a Dream 5 night cruise....

Don't think that you will ever be able to satisfy all the people...
I think this is totally true. It's another reason I tend to not think about the levels much. I can't change that they do it the way they do and it's their choice to do it that way. If they did it the way I'd like most, there'd be all their bread and butter folks who take a lot of 3/4 night cruises squealing

You should. Our first 2 DCL cruises were booked on points, the first was in '04, & they are listed.

OK, so now I feel really stupid - what I "read" on the first post was they started counting bookings toward your level! DUH! (I actually read it as DCL Bookings!)

Sorry to all concerned and I feel like such an idiot!
Guess I have to either 1) stop reading posts from my phone app or 2) Start wearing my granny glasses so I can see what I'm reading!

I wish they would put on a proper adultstyle ball evening on the top deck. How hard would it be? Band, food, put out some fairy lights and what have you, and let us enjoy dancing under the stars! Or maybe it'd be too cold?
