  1. Just wanted to update this post after our cruise...... 1. I would DEFINITELY purchase the Quench beverage package again. The mocktails and coffee drinks were perfect. We got a large bottle of rum for our room and tho it was slightly inconvenient to run down to my room to add a bit of rum to my mocktail, it saved me a bunch of money in the long run. Sometimes I just drank the mocktail and found it refreshing by the pool. No way would have bought a mocktail without this pkg. 2. I'm not a soda drinker so I didn't use that portion. 3. I would also pour a bit of bailey's in a cup before I went and got my specialty coffee. 4. I only purchased 2 alcoholic drinks the entire cruise. 5. We brought a bottle of wine on board for each night....paid the corkage on 5 of them. This was still cheaper than buying the wine they offered of any quality. 6. Sometimes I would order a Red Bull....they were $5.25 each if I chose to purchase. I had one of these a day.
  2. My parents just got off Eurodam yesterday. Here are a few pics of some items at the Pinnacle Grill. Salmon Pastrami - mom said super good Delmonico Steak - med rare - very good short ribs
  3. Thank you both for your quick responses. My GF just about had a heart attack when I told her she may not be able to take her flat iron. We leave here in 3 hours and you truly made her day
  4. Are Flat Irons (for hair) allowed or are they on the NO NO list?
  5. This is what happened to us. I kept thinking it was a waste of work for the room steward, but I was happy not to lug around 12 bottles.
  6. On our last HAL cruise they took our wine from us just AFTER we went thru Security. The gal asked our room #, tagged the bottles and they delivered them to our room (we paid the corkage on all but 2 bottles as expected). However, my folks just paid the corkage, they put stickers on the bottles and then they told my parents to take the bottles with them. My parents boarded at a different time. I just wondered what the correct way, as I'm trying to decide how many bottles of wine I want to lug around if they make us take the bottles with us on board.
  7. OP here.....I'm gone for a day and I wasn't here to defend myself. First of all, I thought I was starting a poll, but for some reason posted in the thread section....I've never started a poll and apparently I screwed it up. I tried to "EDIT" the post to be an actual poll but it wouldn't let me.....thus you see my edit. Secondly, I realize this is not a Nationwide Poll regulated by some government agency. I just saw the other thread that had something like 1,000 (don't quote me on the exact figure) posts and I was just trying to figure out how to find out in a ONE WORD answer the feel of people. Obviously, I needed to add a bunch more instructions regarding this. A lot of you have ADD apparently Any questions????
  8. I leave Sunday from SD and I haven't packed either
  9. Argh, ya all are making my head spin My intent of this post is for the poorer people like myself to try to sock away a little $ away at a time in OBC so we don't have shell shock at the end of the cruise. A lot of us don't have the luxury of big savings, stock accounts, inheritance, etc. I'm trying to help some people with other options instead of buying a beverage package and getting hoodwinked when they realize it doesn't pay for itself. The OBC suggestion is a way of saving a little extra money to pay for drinks rather than charging it to a cc which like some of us with the best of intentions don't manage to pay it off monthly.
  10. I'm a bad stacker too Only 3 more days and I'll be sitting down in PG with my caviar!!!
  11. Oh, I'm splurging for it......at least once
  12. So, the PG menu on the HAL website has been out of date since 2016? Shame on HAL
  13. Interesting.....we are on NA. Does anyone know the show schedule?
  14. I just called Ship Services (because I had nothing better to do) and asked. My response was this: ME: Just curious if the $10 for an additional entree in the MDR is still in effect because the trial was supposed to be ending March 31st. HAL: Well, I'm not sure.....let me go find out for you. ME: Thank you HAL: The trial has officially ended as of March 31st and there is no longer a charge for an additional entree in the MDR. ME: Thank you! While I realize you can get 3 different responses from 3 different people, I just thought I'd pass on the info. May call later and see what kind of answer I get.
  15. Along the same question.....Do you use the HAL Navigator app or the Ship Mate app? Our main goal is to text each other and look at our account balances and itinerary. Do these apps both do the same thing?
