    Cool Cruiser
  1. http://printableteamschedules.com/NCAA/marchmadness.php Just looked at tv schedule for tournament. HAL doesn’t get those channels.
  2. I would suggest not booking during the tournament if you want to watch many games. In the past HAL gets very few channels that the tournament is shown on.
  3. Last month of the Kdam it was a set price of $15 per person. You ordered as many things as you wanted. We were glad that we went with another couple because we ordered several tapas to share as well as individual main dishes. We loved it.
  4. You connect with them by their name (I think the name they booked the cruise under). I think each person needs to go on Navigator after they board and set up an account. It is frustrating that there is nom”alert” that you have a message. You need to sign on to Navigator to check to see if you have any messages.
  5. Zero line dance classes on 21 day Kdam I was on last week The ONLY time I even saw a line dance was during B.B. King show and they came out on floor to start it. Sadly there were so many young children being allowed to take over the floor that there wasn’t room for others. Plus it’s a safety issue with children running amuck.
  6. There are 2 ships in Amsterdam this Sunday - Koningsdam and Prinsendam as far as the websites that list port schedules. HAL sent email saying that since there are 2 ships in port that it will be necessary to do check in by decks and then lists the time for each deck. Kdam sails at 5pm and Pdam sails at 6pm. Having a 2:30-3:00 check in time seems really late to me. Is this normal for Amsterdam checkin? Thanks for any info.
  7. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! Enjoy every moment! It should be an awesome time. The itinerary is amazing and we love the ship. We look forward to spending time with you guys. See you onboard!
  8. We walked to The Old Town Bridge and the adjoining neighborhood which is old buildings on wooden pillars along the river.
  9. Yes, you could do it the way you stated. Another option is to take disposable shower caps to the buffet and cover your filled plates with them to “schlepp them back to your cabana”. The plates are disposable.
  10. Great! We sail out of Amsterdam and thought about bringing them on board but wondered about a vase. I would love to have an arrangement there when friends board but I also like the idea of being able to have a better selection onboard. Hopefully the ship could get them there in a decent time.
  11. This is a thread from 2017 and I was wondering if being able to order flowers after you are onboard still has additional/better selections? We are sailing out of Amsterdam and I wondered about trying to bring flowers onboard.....but I prefer the convenience of ordering them once onboard.
  12. My guess is that they will gladly let you buy another wine package anytime during the cruise.
  13. Go on You Tube. There are some great videos as folks are on the trail.
  14. We loved our day with Anastasia of Urban Adventures. We booked for 2 of us on what was listed as a small group tour (10-12) but she also offers custom private tours. Imagine our surprise when it was just the 2 of us and Anastasia. Additionally imagine our surprise when she commented that we had made better time with the walking portion and so if we wanted to see additional subway stations that we had time. She booked our lunch at a unique restaurant and we sat in an old Volga car that was right next to an old wooden electric chair. It was a great tour. Since she is a small franchise, she doesn’t have the priority authorization to bring her transport right to your ship. We also saw various taxis having to pick up/drop off people at the port gate while other companies were allowed to drive on to the port area. Instead, you need to walk out to the port gate and she will meet you there. Not a problem for us.
  15. Thank you.....so I guess this means they haven’t gone to the unlimited/tier level?
