  1. I didn't hear Amsterdam anywhere, he did say it would be on nieuw Amsterdam February 2020
  2. We were on a last cruise with a very cute little one ( my teen was very grateful they let her play with him a lot, they were in the cabana beside us, made her cruise way more enjoyable) they said they contacted HAL and were given lots of amazing advise, like if you can bring a collapsable wagon, they were able to use it during the day on board then at night it took up less space then a babybed they just added padding for sleeping in
  3. I dont think that is on HALs website at all, i think that is miss information from a third party site. I know we paid full price for our daughter
  4. Last march we took our then 14 yr old to the PG, she isnt picky but she didnt like it. This cruise she asked if she could skip it when we go
  5. We booked a lido cabana for our cruise on the NA in march the price was the same this time as last april and the same on that info above. Last year the menu was the same as the lido buffet just scaled down a bit and the dive-in menu, drinks was the bar menu, ( you pay for drinks) in the afternoon we were offered sparkling wine, always large bottles of water on ice in the cabana every morning
  6. We booked a cruise for spring break, I think in late September , we paid $1700 canadian for 2 adults 1 child in a veranda room, i just called to ask about the latest promo with the free drinks, which our cruise is eligible it can totally be added but the price goes to $3400 lol. Thats more then if we added the drink package on our own for all 3 of us lol. I am very happy we booked when we did.
  7. We were on the veendam 2 easters ago, there was not really a special easter dinner it was one of the 2 regular gala nights, there was a easter egg hunt in the lobby for-the kids, there were 300 kids on board since it was a school holiday. There was also an easter service

We have had quench twice now, canned soda yes, they would easily give us a few cans the end of the night to bring to the room, no dr pepper ( my teens fav) you used to get the big bottles of still water and sparkling, i believe its single serve 300 ml ?

  9. Well the first 2 on your list are not on HAL, the food is ok i would compare it to a decent chain restaurant, we have sailed disney and carnival, holland america 3 times just because its the cheapest for a get away
  10. Those you dont prebook, the ship services makes a random time for you and puts the card in your room
  11. We purchase as much as we can before we board just so its done and paid for so we have the cabana done, gratuities, drink packages and laundry all paid so far for a cruise in march.
  12. No you cant we had this issue last cruise, we had $100 to use the last night, we bought a nice bottle of wine and then gave out teens the cards to buy their friends mocktails to use it up we had a drink package and out teens had the quench package, our TA gave us beverage cards

  16. I think walking off with your own bags at any time after the ship clears?
  17. We get the kids the quench package, we were told we couldn't turn off their spending and still have their packages work, normally on every other cruise we do turn it off

  22. I was just about to transfer and the TA said that Holland America wont let her add the big box perks on because we have past a casino discount fare and the free gratuities? Its with in the 2 months of booking and before final payment
  23. Now i have free gratuities lol. I guess it pays to keep checking the site. We went from an inside j to a veranda for $20 or $30 more out of pocket then the $100 off i found
