  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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 ?

  4. 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
  5. Those you dont prebook, the ship services makes a random time for you and puts the card in your room
  6. 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.

  19. Thanks i just called, went from an inside J room to a veranda for $40 more out of pocket after we had paid the gratuities on the old room
  20. We dont have any perks this time. Last time we had “free” drinks
  21. Anyone know? So i noticed my cruise i booked for spring break has dropped by $100. I am well before my paid in full date. I am going to call for a price adjustment. Is there a limit to the times i can do this? I know sunwing ( Canadian land vacation tour operator) you can only do it once with their price guarantee. So far i have our price down to $1318 Canadian for 2 adults 1 child.🎉
  22. We had a lido cabana last spring break, we didnt find it noise ( there were over 300 kids on board) or hot
