  1. The 'Yum Yum man' is/was (officially) known as the 'Chimemaster'!
  2. Thank you very much for sharing the pics! I noted that there appeared to be ?4 Life Jackets stored in your cabin! I thought that NCL had removed them from the cabins on all their ships to keep them at the various Muster Stations for distribution, if required!
  3. What is complimentary and what is at cost at the 'Grand Dutch Cafe' onboard the 'Nieuw Statendam'?
  4. When will HAL be uploading to their website the Mediterranean Cruises for 2021
  5. What hotel(s) in Venice does NCL use pre-cruise?
  6. Has there been any indication from HAL whether or not Plastic Straws onboard their fleet will be replaced by Paper Straws, as has been done with NCL onboard their ships, in order to be 'eco-friendly' in reducing the plastic waste?
  7. Is the Mandatory (Muster) Roll Call done electronically and have the Life Jackets, with straps, been replaced by Life Jackets, with Snaps? As an aside, on NCL ships, the mandatory muster drill is done inside, the roll call is done electronically and all the life jackets are stored at the various muster stations. No life jackets are stored in the staterooms, (which, beneficially, frees up more space for storage)!
  8. You were fortunate as the supply of ice buckets has been discontinued so he must have been quite 'benevolent' to have done that (extra) duty for you! Did you tip him?
  9. At Philipsburg, St.Maarten, port of call, there is a small hut, in the shopping area close to the pier, which ONLY sells PURE VANILLA, in various sizes and containers!
  10. No, in fact NCL has discontinued supplying ice buckets in the staterooms; (as well as the beach towel and towel animals)!
  11. Well, that's how long it's been since I last cruised with Hal! I'm distressed that the price has since increased!
  12. I picked a copy up at a local Travel Agency several weeks ago! They have them in stock far longer than waiting to receive them in the mail from Hal!
  13. Are there still sales of t-shirts, handbags, hats, jewellery, etc. on the Lido Deck near the Pool onboard HAL ships? If I recall, they were held on a Sea Day, near the beginning and completion of the cruise! I remember that one could purchase 3 t-shirts for $20!
  14. kazu, is it 'fresh-squeezed' orange juice in the Lido at breakfast?
  15. Scott, thank you very much for this info. Ward
