I can't seem to find out if HAL provides a Daily Notice of what activities, dining times, entertainment etc will occur the following day. On Carnival it was called Carnival Capers - does HAL have this?

AND - super bonus if someone could point me to an example, maybe from the Noordam??

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, HAL has a daily program, currently called On Location, that is left on your bed at turn-down every night.
It is arranged by topic, such as entertainment, dining, lounge hours, as well as having a tear-off portion with all the activities listed by time of event.

Sorry, I can't do the Noordam, but here's a set from the Veendam. It shouldn't be a lot different.

A cc member by the name of "1of4" has been posting the On Location programs for their Ryndam cruise is you want to look at them here:

http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1972674

As you can see, the activities vary by ship, itinerary and length of cruise.

I am wondering if these daily programs from 2008 are still very useful. I would love to see some later ones!

Just curious…. we had a violin/piano duo that played on our recent Panama Cruise called "Adagio"… would it be the same gals? And are all the HAL band called the "HALCats"?
