March 2020 Update: HAL Dry Docks, Charters & Groups

Recommended Posts

Here is the March 2020 update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file.  

Not too much new activity,  perhaps the promoters are holding back announcing their new schedules until the current health scares subside.

I have deleted the Noordam Dry dock that was listed for November/December 2020 as she is now shown as cruising at that time.

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

Oh no, there is group on our upcoming cruise 14 June 2020 – 21 June 2020 : Alaska South Bound : Road Scholar Group. 

 

Hopefully the group doesn't take over a lot of the common areas. We are going to keep the cruise and hope for the best.

The Road Scholar group is generally very small.  I don't think you will notice them.

Veendam charter issue to verify: 

 

I just booked the Veendam for Nov 22 - Dec 6, 2020 out of Tampa.  You have a full charter scheduled scheduled for Nov 20 through 27,2020 for the Veendam out of Tampa.  Something appears to be amiss.

No worries with the small Road Scholar Group!  They aren't nearly as rowdy as the Knitting Group!  (kidding! both groups won't be noticed at all!)   Have a great cruise to Alaska!

Thanks, I have seen Road Scholar Groups at National Parks and they seem to be fairly small not exceeding 50 people.

Good spot!

Seems they cancelled this charter when Veendam was home ported to Tampa.  Now it is replaced with Eurodam out of PE on 28th March 2021.

I will amend it on the next update.

Thanks.

I just saw an ad for MRC Cruise on Eurodam Feb 21, 2021.  Looks like a group rather than a charter but it is a bit difficult to tell.

From the website -



I am thrilled to invite you to join me and a fantastic group of conservative leaders on the Media Research Center’s 2021 Cruise to the Caribbean aboard Holland America’s gorgeous ms Eurodam.

Thanks Rich.  I already have that listed as a 'Group on Board' as it is difficult to decide which type it is, however when I updated the listing in March, HAL was still offering the possibility to book the Feb 21st cruise on their site.
