I understand that during the renovation, HAL intends to install a "birdbath" pool on Prinsendam as it has proved to be a popular feature on other ships. Formal night will be reintroduced, smoking will be allowed everywhere on board, and trays will once again make an appearance in the buffet.

 

Finally, the ship will be re-christened as the "April Fooldam".

"Meneer van Den Haag" is Dutch and means "the gentleman who hails from The Hague" :classic_cool:

Maybe even use the space where they have put up a giant movie screen on the newer ships to install a giant calendar reminding people what date it is ???  :classic_rolleyes:

Thanks, taxmantoo, for sharing your portrait but I was asking Sir PMP for his information source.

I disagree - it was very thoughtful of taxmantoo to share his portrait with all of us.

You must show proof that you have had your tux or gown for at least 30 years - new attire will be tossed  overboard and guests will be required to do the Walk of Shame to the Lido Buffet.  Feed bags will be provided for guests to strap on for the extra entrees in the MDR.  Hal Cats will be the entertainment, with a wide selection of songs from the 1950s...

HAL bans Sir PMP from all future cruises - citing cruel and viscous behavior towards fellow HAL travelers as the reason.
