  1. Wow! Thanks for the heads up @VMax1700. That is a huge difference and change in OBC 😯
  2. Yes. No booking required - they just walk in but it is for NS and above only.
  3. Remember the old adage. Those that work in Seattle have often not been on a ship and do not always know how things work on the ships.
  4. I hope you enjoy your first cruise and first HAL cruise 🙂 Delighted to add it for you.
  5. Oops 😞. How the heck did I pull that faux pas off? 😫😥 My apologies. I’ll get it corrected right away and it will be right for the next listing. So glad you caught it. Apologies again.
  6. Thanks for letting us know where the dam ships are today, Rich 🙂 LOL on ditching the New Year’s resolutions 🤣
  7. You will need the premium service to watch streaming/videos. That internet package is available to purchase pre cruise for most cruises and is cheaper than buying it on board. Internet on the ships is not as fast as at home. If things are favourable you will be able to stream and watch your foot ball games. On our last cruise, DH wanted to watch soccer games on sea days. It worked at times but other times it did not. It could have been our ship or our location for the satellite but just to let you know that it may be sporadic.
  8. The Bon Voyage threads are derived from this listing. If you would like to receive a Bon Voyage, I need the following details posted please: Your EMBARKATION date The SHIP you are on  # of days (including if you are on a Collectors or B2B) & the NAME of your cruise     B2B? If you want Bon Voyages for them, please give the dates. Thank you 😄
  9. Just to add, Maasdam and the other S & R ships have what is akin to a hot tub (not the thassolatherapy pool) and the thermal loungers. It’s relaxing with nice views but much more limiting than the other ships (Vista class and above).
  10. This thread is now CLOSED. Please post your future cruise plans on the updated listing for January 17th, 2020. Here is the link - Thank you 🙂
  11. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated January 17th, 2020 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  12. Our CC friend is in for a real adventure as she heads off on her first World Cruise! Her itinerary looks fabulous and very enjoyable. We hope she has a wonderful time on all of her 131 days and of course, we wish her safe travels, fair winds and smooth seas. Bon Voyage to Regent Seven Seas Mariner - 131 day World Cruise ArtsyCraftsy - have a great first World Cruise Bon Voyage ArtsyCraftsy !!!!!! Have a great world cruise and a WONDERFUL time !!!!!!
  13. Yes, you can buy a bottle on board. No problem. The last time we did it, the bar had us call room service to order and it was delivered to our cabin.
  14. That’s a shame ithaca gal. We always dine in the PG on the last night and so far, so good. But my most recent PG’s have been on the Prinsendam (best PG IMO) and the Rotterdam (pretty dam good, too). I remember our Maasdam cruise a few years ago where it was so dismal that, after the first night dining there, we all cancelled our remaining reservations. I realize things can vary from ship to ship, but specialty restaurants are one place that HAL should really strive for consistency across the fleet.
