  1. Hey y'all, just a heads up for those of you who like to follow his always interesting blog; HAL Captain Albert is back at sea, this time on Veendam. You can follow his saga here: https://www.captainalbert.com/05-feb-2020-fort-lauderdale-florida/
  2. "other electronic cooking appliances" 😉
  3. From the prohibited items list: Hookah and Water Hookah Pipes, candles and incense, strike-anywhere matches, clothing irons/steamers, heating pads, hot plates, kettles, coffee makers, toasters and other electronic cooking appliances.
  4. The bow camera on HAL ships is actually located on the bridge just inside one of the fwd windows off center, starboard side 😉
  5. They're messing up "Miss G?" Wazzup with that? 😎
  6. Shame on Veendam's Hotel Dept (Executive Housekeeper) for allowing that! They definitely know better
  7. Agreed, but try selling that added procedure to some, not all, but some, passengers who want to get outtathere without any more delays 😉 Oh, and yes, to answer the two questions; the old life vests, the straps of which you had to wrap around you and tie off in a knot (plus place both arms through), have been replaced by the clip-on "jacket-style" vests and pretty sure, the Vista-class and up now do electronic muster check-in. Not sure about the six smaller (two "S" and four "S") class ships
  8. Sorry to hear about the medical disembark already Roy ☚ī¸ All the best to that individual with hopes to rejoin Serenity somewhere along the way although that has been proven to not always be possible https://www.vesselfinder.com/?imo=9243667
  9. Roy is safely onboard Crystal Serenity (I was his chauffeur between the port of Long Beach and the port of Los Angeles/San Pedro this morning) and she is currently sailing south-east of Catalina Island and east of San Clemente Island, next stop; Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia in seven days https://www.vesselfinder.com/?imo=9243667
  10. What the problem was in 2006? Yeah, one of the workers at the Victoria shipyard, Esquimalt, BC, left a screwdriver inside the pod during her October 2006 dry-dock and maintenance there. That act alone and the resulting headaches cost HAL a few bucks
  11. Caveot lector! Credo nos in fluctu eodem ese 😉
  12. Close! 😉 The Seattle manager in charge of Beverage made a site visit and came up with the brilliant decision to have the security team, on their busiest day of a cruise (turnaround day) and usually up since 0500, "man" the ship's "naughty rooms" for confiscated liquor purposes
