October 2019 Update: HAL Dry Docks, Charters & Groups

Recommended Posts

Here is the latest update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file.  

Please consider this a 'work in progress' which will evolve from month to month. 

There is a doubt about the planned Dry Dock for Noordam, 23 November 2020 to 6 December 2020 as she is currently in dry dock in Esquimalt, B.C. until Sunday 13 October.

She has no cruises currently listed for the period 23 November to 6 December 2020.

 

The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity.

If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

New information is shown in Red

Thank you for the report! Appreciate it.

I’m surprised that the Rotterdam is not on the list for dry dock?

We were told by HD Marco van Belleghem on board Rotterdam last week, that dry dock of the Rotterdam would be done with him on board in Bermuda in December 2020. This would fit perfectly in the gap in the schedule between 8 and 22 december.

According to Bobpatj on the "Exc/On location port lecturer elimination" thread, some 2020 Rotterdam dry dock changes are not waiting for 2020......changes to the Rotterdam are happening NOW on board as they do the TA to FLL!!!

 

"We are on the Rotterdam now, sailing back to FLL.  Glenn-Michael is our Cruise Director/EXC Director.  The day before we were to arrive in Naples, Italy, he gave us the temperature for Naples, FL.  As we sailed the Transatlantic portion of our cruise, they installed the new Dueling Piano area where the Piano Bar was, which now puts Jamm and other Piano Bar folks out of a job.  Lincoln Center was installed earlier this year where Explorations was, but it is a  real bonus, as the group playing there is fantastic and draws huge crowds.  All is not bad, just different."
