  1. Just curious -- when you receive an upgrade offer, is it after final payment? Has anyone ever received an upgrade offer before final payment?
  2. We just got off of the Nieuw Amsterdam and played Pickleball almost every day. We had to kick the basketball players off of the court (they were not too happy with us), and had to string the net up a couple of times (a tennis net set strung at the height of a pickleball net). There were a few experienced Pickleball players, but we found ourselves teaching a lot of curious people how to play (it was still fun as it's always fun to play Pickleball!)...
  3. I received this via email... I hope you get a new offer --- it looks like a fun time!
  4. The perks are VIP boarding and disembarkation, specialized service with a dedicated VIP host, VIP-only welcome aboard party, complimentary beverages while in the casino, comp entries to the slot and blackjack tournaments, private VIP-only farewell party and prize drawing, free play in the casino and special fares. I had read about these offers for other cruise lines where your travel companion is included for the comp beverages, the tournament entries, and the prize drawings (as well as all of the other things offered)... Just curious if HAL has the same policies. Thanks for asking... 🙂
  5. I received a VIP casino offer which my husband and I will be taking advantage of. This is our first such offer on Holland America. I have a question regarding all of the perks of this offer -- are they given to both me and my husband? For example, will my husband be included in the prize drawings, get a free entry in the blackjack tournament and the slot tournament, etc.?
  6. I have read that it is possible to make table reservations for three days at a time... Can you make a table reservation if you are assigned Open Seating?
  7. Thank you for this quick reply! I'm not sure what it will be like playing Pickleball on a moving ship in the wind... lol But, I'm willing to give it a try!
  8. We are sailing on the Nieuw Amsterdam in 11 days (yeah!!)... Can anyone tell me if they set up pickleball courts on this ship, and if yes, are they set up every day and do they hold organized games/tournaments? Thanks!
