  1. I wonder if any are going before December!
  2. THe Koningsdam was a one time special deal and it cost HAL big, big bucks I am told. The problem is the PC pilots have to have a clear view of the ship and the Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam give obstructed view because the life boats are out too far.I did hear they were going to reconfigure the Life boats on the RYNDAM so it can go through the large locks.
  3. I am not playing Russian Roulette. For me, living each day of my life as though it were my life means something much more profound than "eat, drink and be merry."
  4. The question is: "Would you go on a Social distance cruise. I probably would. Realize that each of the ships would go at 50% of capacity or less. That means the largest HAL ships could only carry 1300 or less passengers. The major news programs are warning of fact that yesterday there were 378 Covid 19 deaths. On the average day in the USA there are 7452 deaths. But they forget to announce that. The late Irish Comedian Hal Roach . used to say:" Ladies and gentlemen, live every day of your life as though it is your last, because some day you are going to be right."
  5. No Club HAL? Where are the Children supposed to go?
  6. Rich: Thank you roe the DAILY.. Eurodam and 5 others are at Sea. I hope they are "Happy Wanderers." Will be having Chicken wings tonight. Strawberry Sunday is not good for the diabetes but is good and tasty. Had one last Friday.
  7. I missed the one on cooking eggs Perhaps it was because I cannot eat eggs and have not had one in 44 years..
  8. Captain Mercer is now retired. Let him enjoy his retirement.
  9. Very nice! hank you for posting and sharing these pictures. The Zaandam was supposed to do this run this summer.
  10. Thanks for the report Rich. I am tempted to sing "The Happy Wanderer" to the Volendam and to the two ships headed to the Suez Canal.
  11. Every presentation I went to on any number of HAL ships was packed to the point of SRO. It was very popular. It has gone from the HAL ships. It was more popular than the Culinary Arts thing that preceded it. HAL is still a sponsor of "Cook's Country."
  12. IT looks like a nice early morning on this 4th of July.
