  1. Thanks for the quick thoughts and notes!
  2. Some of the offerings are quite expensive and I believe they are curated per ship so there may not be a standard menu. I haven't ever seen one published like you will find for the other venues. I think they might use iPads or something similar to present the available choices.
  3. You're quite welcome; I still feel like I am invested in this cruise and am enjoying reading everyone's posts. Having 90 attend out of the 130 who signed up (some of whom may well have canceled and we didn't hear about it) is great! I'm glad that Seth attended and provided some insight that you wouldn't have gotten elsewhere. Time to start the process of getting packed so we can board on 5 November for my DWs well deserved time off! Say hi to everyone!
  4. I see it is back now and the last post was 15 October 2021, regarding Princess Margriet being chosen as Rotterdam VIIs godmother. It appears to be a press release.
  5. Thanks! I think we've had Tony on the entertainment staff before also.
  6. See the photo of the setup here: https://halfacts.com/pinnacle-class/rotterdam-plaza-deck/ There is indeed a small stage!
  7. I was looking at it only 2 days ago and it was functioning then. Perhaps HAL has neglected to renew the domain or they are planning to integrate it somehow into their sites? He is such a great resource that I hesitate to think he would just abandon it, or HAL either.
  8. @sansterre, can you confirm whether Captain Albert is on board? It was said he was to be and not meeting him after we canceled was one of my regrets. I hope he is and is enjoying the cruise along with the rest of you! He's got a lot of knowledge of all things HAL and does some fantastic talks about ships and captains.

  10. Looking forward to everyone's reports. Best wishes for a great cruise!
  11. Tim, did NA use the new locks? It looks like you were headed toward them in the one shot.
  12. Several cruisers and travelers I know have used it and love it. Most have experienced 15 minute turnarounds and have results in less than that. We only know of couples who have used it though, not larger groups. We also have ordered the tests and will take them on the 3d or 4th of November.
  13. If someone doesn't report here before, I'll be happy to let you know in early November. 😎
  14. This is simply because the USB outlets near the bed likely have a very low output of 2.5 watts which may provide up to 1.5 amps. That charges anything very slowly (by today's standards.) Your 120V converter likely puts out more than that. It's not your fitbit.
  15. Some do have sofas.... see 6127 – Koningsdam | HAL Cruiser Information (halfacts.com)
  16. What an excellent job you are doing all while celebrating your birthday! Thank you for taking us along with your efforts here. Enjoy your cruise and Happy Birthday!
  17. Perhaps it's a pilot program? 👍🤞 Might be something Jan Swartz, president of Holland America Group, who came from Princess Cruises, is behind?
  18. Here's the link at HAL to redeem this offer for those looking for it: https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/deals/sandiego-military-appreciation-offer.html Interesting that it says active and retired military, although someone mentioned earlier that they received it as a veteran, non-retired (good for you and thanks for your service, all of you). It doesn't mention whether it is offered only to US military. Would like to see this expanded and operated like Princess does their program. Are you listening, Jan? 😁
  19. Folks on the Rotterdam TA have this dinner offered also, so it sounds like it is just being introduced and may be across the fleet eventually. Those on that cruise who inquired with HAL say there is no Mariner discount available on it. Thanks @Vict0riann for taking on this effort! Looking forward to reading your entries. Enjoy your cruise!
