  1. Yep it is on the list. Can I blame it on "old" eyes?😏
  2. And not a single HAL ship on any of those lists! I was on the Koningsdam from 2/23 to 3/15 and HAL was proactive at all times in protecting passengers, crew and ship.
  3. (red added by regnig) Yea and I "may" win the lottery. I sure wouldn't want to take a chance that early but that's just me.
  4. Rich I wanted to add my thanks for you taking the time for these posting. Some days they are the only pleasant thing I can find to read. Missed your menu today but guess a left over day is called for us all. How very true "You never know how many friends you have until you rent a house on thebeach" is!
  5. Do I read that correctly... HAL is not canceling Caribbean or Panama Canal cruises?
  6. Please understand though that if you purchase it now or at any time prior to final payment if you cancel your cruise you will still have to pay the cost of that insurance. Our very trusted TA advised us long ago to wait until final payment to make the purchase.
  7. both the cameras I've been watching just froze up... somebody please let me know if they are still headed in
  8. Wonder if the fellow sitting on the bench realizes he is in the company of close to 1700 people?
  9. And lets not forget "What time is the midnight buffet?"!
  10. cjmayes51 I couldn't have said it better. The response here on CC has been so heartwarming and goes to show that the world if full of very wonderful and caring people. Their outreach to a complete stranger and her family has been touching. May their days be filled with blessings of love, peach, joy and good health. Now we all need to make certain that we "pay it forward" by doing what we can for others during this difficult time. Even the smallest act can and will make a difference to someone else.
  11. I had the pleasure of spending a good deal of time with your Mom (yep, I'm one of those "people" too) and she is such a wonderful person. I was also on the 2/23 cruise so we talked daily for 21 days. Hopefully your folks were or are able to get home since their plans of going through the Panama Canal were aborted. Please tell her Barb sends her best. While I don't disagree with most of your review of the cruise I must admit the entertainment I attended was pretty darn good for HAL compared to the past. The Step One Dance Company was very good and gave 3 performances on both cruises. Brian the comedian on the 2/23 cruise and Jo Little on the 3/4 sailing were both laugh till you cry funny. Nothing like the normal cruise ship comedians with the same old jokes. I think HAL is attempting to improve day time activities as they at least reinstated Music Trivia at the Sea View pool a couple of times each sailing.
  12. Sorry if this is a repeat, just got home and haven't had time to read through all the posts. I just spent 21 days on the KDam and I just don't have enough great words for HAL as to how the 2/23 and 3/04 cruises were handled. They were just GREAT under the worst of circumstances. The ship was kept sparkling clean from top to bottom and we had NO cases of the virus. The captain keep us updated as to what the different islands were doing and when St Kitts would not allow any ships to dock made arrangement to go to Antigua only to have them turn us away at the very last moment. Everyone on board received a $100 obc for something that was certainly not HAL's fault. The Kdam is now going to head around SA to reposition for the Alaska season. Employees who were either at the end of their contract or very close have been sent home but the remainder will consider along with the ship. Since there will be no passengers hopefully all those hard working people will get a bit of rest over the next 40 some day. As always there were passengers who complained the entire trip over the most inane things but for the most part passengers were upbeat and "going with the flow". More later but in MHO HAL rocks!!!
  13. Many thanks to all. We are in good shape as I already entered my CC number when I did the on-line check in for both of us. DD is aware of that so YEA I get to sit in my lounger by the pool a bit longer.
