  1. Those J and K category staterooms on main deck are huge. At least 25% larger than the ocean views. I should add, only on Vista and Signature class ships.
  2. The ZPM code can be used with whatever promo is currently offered. So, yes, you can get the benefit of all 3. *Miss G*, you beat me to it.
  3. Our PCC is also really good to deal with. Quick to respond and upfront with his ideas on handling any problems we might have.
  4. Yes you can.. Call the HAL number and book your cruise with whoever takes your call. At the same time you can bring the mistakes on your account to their attention too. Enjoy your cruise.
  5. On Nieuw Statendam in February we got the flimsy blue bag. This one looks much nicer.
  6. We will be sailing Zuiderdam on Feb. 8, 2020 for 18 days. 7 day Tropical Caribbean cruise followed by 11 day Panama Sunfarer cruise. Kazu, thank you for keeping this list going.
  7. Gifted beverage cards (from HAL) generally are nonrefundable. At least that has been our experience.
  8. Enjoy your cruise to Alaska. If you happen to see Scott Singer on the ship, please at hi. A number of years ago when he was about 18, he did a really good "live from" on one of his cruises. Now he's been fortunate to have a job in the cruise industry. Thanks.
  9. You can click on the underlined statement and it will show you the seat assignment. At this point you can change seats as well.
  10. I thought there was a maximum on the rebates you could get on your membership card. Looks like I might be wrong, unless it's a country thing. Canada vs USA.
  11. I think it's $1,000. At least here in Canada. This credit is only given to you at the end of the year. And I think just for use in the stores. Don't know if you can cash it.
  12. If you have the executive membership you will get another 2% of the cruise price credited to your big box account.
  13. @msmayor thanks for elaborating your strategy.
  14. Thanks for posting these lists.
  15. Big changes on HAL ships tend to go through some rough growing pains. When they first added cabanas to the ships, the discussions were long and very negative. Now, most, if not all are quite positive. If CO is used a lot on the ships, HAL will keep them and expand to the rest of the ships. If the space is underused, they will come up with other ideas. Only time will tell.
  16. Thanks for that added information. Very helpfull.
  17. No. At the end of the cruise they will refund any balance on your drink card to the credit card used for purchasing it. You cannot use the balance directly to pay for anything else on your final bill. Only if you purchase onboard credit can it be used to cover your final bill.
  18. If you have the SBP, buying a beverage card as well makes it much easier to buy drinks for other friends onboard. If you are so inclined. 😘🍹 With just the package it makes it difficult, because you may not share it and I don't think there is an easy way for bar staff to charge your account .
  19. Thanks for giving a $ amount. I always wondered what amount would get an offer.
  20. Not sure what people mean when they say they don't spend much in the casino. I understand that no one really wants to share numbers. So I'll ask, will $25 a day on slot machines get one a casino offer? Any ideas?
  21. No, I don't think so unless it's part of the program, like a pizza party. But that would probably not be during dinner time.
