  1. Mexico Jan 9-16 2021 on Koningsdam. Canada/New England OCt 2021
  2. I have a Jan 2021 Mexico cruise booked and I got the email a couple of days ago. I'm thinking about it. We booked the cruise on board this January and then I rebooked it under the current promotions to get the free drinks package and daily service charge. If they keep this up and the cruise actually takes place its going to turn into a smoking great deal.
  3. One of the first questions we were asked by our server last week in the Pinnacle Grill (and in the dining room as well) was about food allergies.
  4. Just off the Oosterdam and did not find the music to be too loud in any venue, but I'm only 53. One night on the MainStage was Magic Rocks which is a rock n roll illusionist with a decent soundtrack. A woman sitting near us spent the whole show complaining about the music and the volume. The fact that we could clearly hear her complaints that were not addressed to us is how I know that it wasn't too loud.
  5. This just shows how different people enjoy different aspects of cruising. I love bars on land and sea and would much rather have a drink in one the onboard venues than in my cabin on my verandah.
  6. This has been one of my favorite threads in a while. We sail on the Oosterdam on the 11th and your report has got us really ready to cruise.
  7. I did the math and the pre-cruise price for the SBP seems to work in my favor. Between the non-alcoholic beverages and the beers and cocktails that I enjoy while cruising I have no problem accounting for the daily costs. I don't tend to do wine on cruises so the very limited wines available in the package are not a problem.
  8. I believe that the America's Test Kitchen is no longer a featured activity. Are there any cooking demonstrations in the BB King space during the day anymore?
  9. I can only echo what others have said. I was hesitant to order it last May but I did it anyway and it turned out to be the best steak I have ever had on a cruise ship. It was truly fantastic.
  10. It includes all the specialty coffees, smoothies, and shakes. The bartenders can also make mocktail versions of the many of the drinks as well. The package may or may not come in handy depending on what you like.
  11. I'm on that cruise as well. Can't wait. It will be our 6th cruise (2nd on HAL).
  12. I've stayed in the deck 11 mini suites and 2 bedroom suites. If you are far enough forward there is no noise. My brother on the same cruise was a few cabins aft from us and had noise.
  13. Thanks for this. I'm actually going to be on the Jan 11 sailing to the Mexican Riviera and was wondering about the change. 2 sea days at the beginning instead of 2 sea days at the end. No big deal as far as we are concerned.
  14. We were on the Eurodam last May in Alaska. It was very casual even on the Gala Nights. We even did the special dinner with Ethan Stowell and people were dressed business casual at the most.
