I have noticed that contributors who post the WHEN and WHERE are showing the daily Mass is at 5:00PM whether the ship is at sea or in port. It is always in the Hudson Room on the larger ships and in the Wijang theatre on the S and R class ships. This is a change as the rule used to be that if the ship is at sea the Mass was ay 8AM and in port at 8AM the Mass was at 5PM.

Just last week and 2 weeks prior to that, Mass was at 5 pm on port days, and 8am on sea days on Zuiderdam.  We were so lucky on both cruises to have a couple of great Canadian priests.  One of the special “perks” of sailing on HAL.

On the recent 29 day Yokohama to Sydney EXC cruise beginning Aug. 28th all Masses were at 5pm.  We were very disappointed as were several others. When we and others tried to discuss what we thought of as a significant change from all cruises we have been on with the Cruise Director what we got would be best described as a run-around.  Very dissapointed.

I'll be happy to see this change, so long as allowances are made for those days with a late port arrival/departure. It means I can go to Mass now on sea days, which was never possible in the past. No way can I be awake by 8:00 AM on a sea day, let alone be dressed enough to leave the cabin.

I hear we have a celebrity priest on the Nieuw Statendam next week...?

 

This should be considered the best excursion that HAL has ever offered!

 

Please report back on the mystery celebrity's identity!

No celebrity priest--just this old timer!

He is the same guy who had Mass at St. Petronelle's a couple weeks ago on a Wednesday at 8 AM

 

I look forward to the day when I'll get to assist you as your deacon. It's such a privilege and HAL deserves a lot of credit for continuing with it. For some of us it's what sets HAL uniquely apart.
