No smoking at all in the casino on N/A, thankfully.

Slots open early morning, I'm thinking 9 am and stay open until late, probably 1-2 am. Tables are much more limited hours. I've never seen the casino open 24 hours on any ship.

In our experience with HAL's transfers, we have always been dropped off as a group at one spot and then we had to walk to our airline ticketing counter, which could be quite a hike. Like you, last...

I believe the OP is looking for transfers from airport to the ship in Civitivecchia.

A monumental task! Let someone else take the lead...HAL! You dont want to stress yourself before and after your cruise.

We absolutely have booked with our casino rate and picked up the promos as well. You have been misinformed and you really should push to get what you're entitled to.

Actually, that really depends on the ship and the hotel manager onboard. Last May when we were on Koningsdam we took a HAL excursion to a Tuscan winery. We purchased wine to take back with us to...

Totally agree with you! I'm not a fan of Carnival, but I have never felt it was necessary to go on their boards and tell them how they should build a ship that I personally like better. I love the...

Certainly not afraid to fly! I'm more afraid that I'll die sitting on my sofa when I'm old and frail and wishing I'd traveled to exotic and far away places. So that's what we do......embrace life!

This is a tough one, because we like lots of HAL ships in different sizes and classes. We really like Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, Westerdam and Zaandam, Oosterdam is a good ship, too. However,...

Two years ago we did a family reunion cruise on Eurodam. Family came from all over the world: USA, Canada, Europe and Mexico! Twenty two of us in total! Ages ranged from 20 years to 80+ years! ...

Such a tragedy for all involved. Very sad, indeed.

Not being able to serve yourself and not touching the serving utensils is the absolute best way to prevent the spreading of germs through cross contamination. So happy that HAL has moved forward...

You have to give them your shipboard card and they will keep track of your play and apply it to your account. Without your card, they can't monitor your play like they can on slots.

You should probably post this on your Roll Call instead of the general boards. Just go to "Boards", scroll down to "Roll Calls" and then choose your ship and then the sailing date. Great place to...

I can't answer your questions regarding the children. There is a program for kids on all HAL ships and I've heard that it's quite enjoyable. Others may be able to elaborate on this for you.

Yes,...

Your best bet would be to connect with others on your sailing through the Holland America Roll Calls. To find yours, go to Boards and then scroll down to Roll Calls, choose HAL then choose your...
