    My surprise was that he mentioned the "High Score" on the Amsterdam.  That ship is used mainly for Grand and World Voyages.  Not too many families are on that ship unless they go to Alaska in the summer.  I hope they will not move ships around for those voyages.

    I didn't hear Amsterdam anywhere, he did say it would be on nieuw Amsterdam February 2020   

  3. 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

    The website mentions that if kids under 12 order from the regular menus, they are half price and if they order from the kids menu, they are free. I know she will not be free because of her age but if she orders from the kids menu, do they make any kind of reduction? I don't mind paying the extra fee to eat in the specialty restaurants, but I would hate to pay $39/$25 for my daughter to eat chicken fingers 🙂

     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 

  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  

  8. 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 ? Sparkling, 500 ml still 

    Enjoy unlimited mocktails, juices, bottled water (sparkling 330ml or still 500ml), Exploration’s Café Beverages and sodas. Only on the ms Koningsdam, the package includes Freestyle Coca-Cola which provides 100+ refreshing Coca-Cola flavors to choose from. A 15% service charge will be automatically applied to your purchase. The Quench Beverage Package must be purchased for the entire duration of the voyage. All guests booked in the same stateroom must also purchase the package. The package is for unlimited non-alcoholic beverages. The package excludes purchases made in the Mini Bar, Chocolate Seduction, In-Room Dining, beverages purchased on Half Moon Cay. Packages are non-transferable or refundable. No sharing is permitted. Participants may order only one drink at a time. Beverage Management reserves the right to evoke the package if misused and reserves the right to refuse service for any reason.

  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

    So if you have complimentary PG and Tamarind vouchers form our TA or HAL how do we pre book these and not have to pay for them? I am confused 😐 

    Those you dont prebook, the ship services makes a random time for you and puts the card in your room 

  11. 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
