  1. I think I'm misunderstanding your post... I must be... HAL is offering airfare that is $130 less per person than what the airlines themselves offer and you're saying it doesn't sound like big savings or a big deal... If I can get airfare for $270 less for the 2 of us than I could get by going straight to the source, hell yeah I'm gonna be happy about it!
  2. The venue looks a little better on Koningsdam. - The abstract graphic for the windows instead of huge forks and spoons. - The chairs are a white leather and very comfortable (numerous tables and chairs right outside that corridor) The thing we couldn't justify was the price. Especially when the beverage package is almost exactly the same price. Pretty clear which gets you a bigger benefit. I think they could really have something here if they used the open kitchen (Dinner at the CAC did this and it was great) and didn't just echo the MDR food. Tossing in an extra choice or two isn't enough to justify it. However take it the route that Celebrity did with Blu which has a focus on fresher, lighter (not to be confused with diet), less sauce-laden foods... AND having the advantage of cooked to order right there in front of you... THAT could be enough to justify it... or at least get it a lot closer to being justifiable.
  3. Love that this thread is still alive and kicking. I've tried communicating it a couple times before without success so I'll try again... The folks that are on here that add material into HAL Facts... anything they would like to take from my photos here and place on there, by all means feel free! To those sailing soon, have an incredible time! I'll be back on the ship on 12/10
  4. Apparently there is some sort of announcement on 9/13 that is entertainment related. Might be connected
  5. I've been on Solstice and Koningsdam. Koningsdam doesn't have massive 5-10 deck high spaces like Solstice does, but otherwise they are very similar in feel when onboard. Have a great time!
  6. Every summer for as long as I can remember there have been a couple insurance companies that have done 2, 3, 4 charters in a row for their employees. Don't recall which company though.
  7. All that is, is seating at the sushi counter inside Tamarind. They've just branded that portion a little different.
  8. I'm curious to see what is done with this space since the original concept didn't really take off the way they hoped.
  9. Glad you liked them! I had searched for and couldn't find your original post as I couldn't remember who posted it, but figured it would be easily discovered if I made a new thread
  10. Think I saw someone asking recently about how Amsterdam looks these days. Here’s a few pictures. First, just check this out. Total night and day. Love the new look. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
