  1. Yes, often HAL is a bargain too often---that is the problem. Except for NS, which often at $1,000.00 per cabin, are over priced and diluted.
  2. The people who have complained about the OP post are complainers....
  3. Not much benefit to the packages anyway.....often none.
  4. But, isn't that why we HAD the pinnacle grill to start with???
  5. Yes and sad. Middle class has been pinched out.
  6. Yes we need this thread. BTW, who is "we?" This is not a private board for a chosen few, but rather a universal forum for all in the world. People, other than regulars, need to know there are on going concerns and cutbacks so that expectations can match reality.
  7. Love your post Mr Bob. I do feel that I wish for more when I pay a large amount of money. Thanks again for your post...
  8. NO. Not when the cutbacks will still becoming for years.... It becomes new again.
  9. I think that this thread should stay alive for years.....
  10. I appreciate very much the quality of the ship and staff. Poor food and poor or no entertainment is a major turn off. The MDR is often just bad---crowded, mediocre service with poor food. If I could get "Outback" quality food in the main dinning room that would be great. BBKing is a good direction. The club orange room for Neptune guests is just a nice diner. Why does HAL "like" the concept of not having much to do during sea days? Simple example. Why take away the steel drums on Caribbean cruises, lol. That is sad. Lectures on the ship were often huge hits with folks. I am looking for a new cruise line so I do not have answers yet. Oceania and Celebrity retreat are on my list.
  11. There are so many cutbacks it is not necessary to name them. Although, someone might wish that as an exact new thread. Here is part of my take. The people here who complain about complainers are, complainers. One reason people complain here, is well, there is reason to complain. Another is that it is sad for many of us who care about Holland America Line to see the cutbacks of services and quality. So yes, we do care. It is also difficult for a cruise ship to satisfy all, when some couples are paying $100.00 per night while others are paying $1,000.00 per night. Yes, there should be different expectations. HAL needs to keep the prices higher on the lower cost staterooms. They will not do this, however.
  12. Jeeze, Oceania is considered a luxury cruise line. How much money am I suppose to spend to get a good steak?
  13. I disagree with much of the above. It is NOT the changes it is the CUTBACKS. HAL is no longer a "premium" cruise line. Never was a luxury cruise line.
