  1. We used to order them as a second appetizer and have them put in a glass as a smoothee
  2. I just cancelled and rebooked my January cruise because the price dropped significantly after final payment. I had used two $100 future cruise certificates and $400 as the original deposit, $600 total deposit on a 22 day cruise on January 31, 2020 on Zaandam. When my Travel Agent cancelled the original booking Holland America told her that the cancellation fee was $600 each. This was 80 days prior to the cruise. The price drop was about $1500 each so I went ahead and cancelled and rebooked and got an $1800 refund. My research shows that HAL's policy for cancelling after final payment and 80 days prior to the cruise should be losing the deposit of $300 each, not $600 each. Am I miss reading the policy? I plan on asking HAL about this in a letter but thought others on this board might like to know and comment. Thanks, Deanl
  3. All HAL ships I have been on have a digital scale near the customer service desk on the last day and last morning of the cruise.
  4. We are booked on a 30 day February cruise which is beyond the final payment date. I called HAL about the Cyber Sale and was given prepaid gratuities and two 25$ drink cards with no change to my original booking or perks. I was surprised because there is no benefit to HAL, but a $920 benefit to us. It took less than five minutes.
  5. Has anyone recently on the Norwegian Spirit checked the TVs for an HDMI port? My son in law wants to bring his X box.
  6. I have a deal with a Travel Agency to book through them and receive part of the commission back. I just booked a Holland America cruise and was told that there was a group cruise for the Travel Agency. The group rate is less than booking it at the advertized room rate. 1. If the cruise rate drops, before final payment, can I get the reduced rate? 2 Does the group rate drop when the advertized rate drops? 3. Are there any pitfalls to doing this that I should know about? 4. Are there any perks that go to the passengers in the group?
