  1. In a few short months the s**t hit the fan. He had to get the Westerdam to dock and bring those passengers home safe and sound. He also had the Covid19 illness/ death on the Zaandam/Rotterdam. I don't blame him ( if he was at the end of his contract) On another note this was a planned departure, because wasn't his wife and younger son aboard the Amsterdam on the 2020 World Cruise? An announcement while visiting with his family and the crew would have been a better way to announce his HAL departure.
  2. Surviving this pandemic is more important than bringing back the classic HAL. I do think getting back to it's roots would be a great next step post pandemic. Customer service with social media engagement. You all are excluding Generation X and the older Millennials we're the next generation of cruisers and some of us like the mid sized/smaller ships.
  3. Have a joyous and peaceful day at home. Stay Safe Stay Healthy ❤️
  4. In a world of a global pandemic this is great to hear. We need to keep taking care of each other.
  5. YOLO! Poutine sounds like a good|bad idea. That's a treat when shelter-in-place/quarantine/lockdown/social distancing ends. Stay safe Stay Healthy!
  6. I had no vacations planned but I would be shopping for my favorite soon to be 6 year old birthday. I would also be at the gym or getting ready for Easter.
  7. Captain Mercer just posted a blog update http://captainjonathan.com/
  8. The Captain is a hero along with the Oosterdam and Eurodam? (Please correct me if I'm wrong)
  9. I bounced out of work a bit early, it was a super long day. I ordered takeout to support a local place during sheltering in place. I'm planning on baking on a well earned day off. Chocolate Chip cookies Or bread
  10. I'll be working. People still need coffee and I'm happy to caffeinate our doctors and nurses.
  11. Heads up all cafe Starbucks are closed for two weeks or more. Certain drive thrus are only open with VERY limited hours in the US and Canada.
