  1. We're in the same position with a june Alaska cruise and i agree with you. There seems to be a strange rush to defend HAL for a lack of communication here which i find....puzzling. How much work does it take to send out an email on this? It would certainly help with the flood of calls they're likely receiving on this situation. It seems like they're hoping either ppl cancel on their own out of frustration or hoping they can find some other way to still make the cruises happen....
  2. They certainty are trying to downplay it as much as possible arent they? "We have no reason to suspect your information is being misused". How in the world could they provide any assurance of that?
  3. Thats what we did. I would have rather used for dining, but im sure we'll find another use for it. Maybe use it to towards the hsc? Not sure the policy on that with hal.
  4. Nami sushi appears to he the only specialty dining option with a la carte pricing, at least on the k.
  5. Our sailing is one week before yours and the specialty dining reservations just opened up for us a few days ago. I'd keep checking on it as it seems to be somewhat random when it shows up for any given cruise date.
  6. Thanks for the responses all. I decided to go ahead and book the specialty dining in advance and pay now. One less thing to worry about when boarding. I'll find something else to spend the rest of the OBC on.
  7. Its promotional OBC so i dont believe its refundable. Looks like the better bet is just book in advance.
  8. You're right. Sel de mer is still a la carte so maybe we just splurge a little there.
  9. Thats kind of what I'm afraid of happening. I'm tempted to just book and pay now, but we have a $600 obc and i don't know how we'll use it all if i don't put it towards dining. Pretty much everything else is already paid for.
  10. Thanks for the information. We'll be on the koningsdam in june for an alaska cruise for 7 days.
  11. So, we're cruising with HAL in June and just had specialty dining open for reservations online. We were hoping to use our OBC to pay for the specialty dining, however it looks like you're charged online immediately upon booking a reservation. We called cusromer service about this and were told that HAL keeps a certain number of reservations open for those who want to book upon boarding the ship. For those who may have done it this way, did you have any luck getting the dining times you wanted? I'm imagining fighting through a mad rush of people boarding the ship only to find out all the reservations are already taken.
  12. Does anyone have a pic of the new CO bags they're giving out now? Just curious since we'll be on the k in a ns later this year
  13. For us, it's nothing. We get decent medical coverage with our saphire reserve, including the evac reimbursement. So, we haven't felt the need to buy additional insurance on top of that.
  14. Im on the k in June and as a fellow germaphobe, i hope thats not the case
