  1. Actually it was HAL that said it was new in their email and when we called them.
  2. Thanks everyone for the advice and input. Here's the info some were asking for; CRUISE DETAILS Embark Date: Dec 15, 2019 Disembark Date: Dec 22, 2019 Ship: Koningsdam Voyage: K966 From Port: Fort Lauderdale To Port: Fort Lauderdale Our plan is to arrive at 10:30 as usual and see what happens. I agree this time restriction would be incredibly difficult to enforce. I will say we were on a HAL cruse last year and the year before and never received a notice like this. Both previous cruises were on the Maasdam. This is our first cruise on the Koningsdam. We don't depart for a few more weeks, but I'll be glad to come back and update how things go.
  3. We received an email this morning from HA stating they have a new check-in policy. The new policy issues required check-in times by ship level. I can't say we are thrilled. Like most seasoned travelers we enjoy arriving early, having lunch, and going for a swim before the crowds arrive. Any thoughts/suggestions on this new mandate? IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION: To help facilitate a smooth start to your voyage we have implemented a progressive cruise check-in schedule. Please arrive at the check-in time listed below. If you purchased a pre-cruise hotel package from Holland America, your transfer time will be provided at your hotel. Guests traveling on shared transport or arriving as a group will be checked in together. Guests should not arrive prior to the suggested check-in time below. Boarding will begin at 1:00 PM and all guests must be onboard by 4:00 PM. 1:30 PM - Deck 6, & Deck 10 (Mozart & Panorama) 2:00 PM - Deck 4 & Deck 8 (Beethoven & Navigation) 2:30 PM - Deck 5 & Deck 7 (Gershwin & Schubert) 3:00 PM - Deck 1 & Deck 11 (Main & Sun) We invite our 4 & 5 Star Mariners and Pinnacle & Neptune Suite guests to arrive anytime between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
