  1. I have to believe that there are intelligent decision-makers at the helm. If the target was truly the lobster then why not advertise that additional lobster requests will have a $10 surcharge? They had that choice and opted out. Ergo, the target was all additional mains. The F&B Manager was either mistaken or attempting to mollify.
  2. I still don’t have the HAL offer on my AMEX but they now have a Marriott Promo if that’s any help to anyone.
  3. Wow. The shoes in that pic look pretty dangerous. Thanks for the updates!
  4. When I book through a PCC I have already comparison-shopped. I have also booked through a TA. There is no hard and fast rule. It’s silly to think there is.
  5. Did I see where someone reported that the new Food and Beverage Director has come from NCL? Recent observations of downgraded service coupled with elimination of items and increased prices has me wondering if HAL is focused on appealing to a different market. And not in a good way.
  6. My initial interview was not so pleasant. With NEXUS you are required to interview with both the Canadian as well as the US agencies. It may have been a combination of a new program, coupled with a lack of education on certain matters, but the CBSA officer was extremely harsh. Or he could have just been a prat and that is where they sent him to retire out. My husband, on the other hand, was in and out in minutes. He said it was a piece of cake.
  7. I am sorry to hear you are disappointed with your cruise and I thank you for sharing your observations. With regard to all courses being served at once, I experienced somewhat of the same situation on the Zaandam recently. Both my husband and I commented on it on our post-cruise survey but your same experience does leave me wondering about the current skills and training of the dining room staff and management. I hope they nip this in the bud soon as this is a basic expectation in food service. As an aside... the above statement caught my eye because I was looking at an MSC cruise in October. As MSC has had a string of mishaps lately I am concerned about their safety and the skill of their crew. If you have the time and the interest, would you care to comment further? Thank you.
  8. I am hoping that’s not how it plays out. There is potential for a really good thing. I am hoping they don’t screw it up.
  9. Now I wish I’d asked. Sometimes I am too passive. Or forgetful. I am passively forgetful.
  10. My new PCC left a voicemail to welcome us back from our cruise. He also sent me an email to remind me of the double OBC for booking within the 60 day window. I am thinking there’s hope. For those who don’t know the background, my former PCC left the company and I was transferred to someone else. He has a lot to live up to as my former PCC was amazing. I had been initially disappointed and was going to request a new one but I may hold off on that.
  11. By the looks of it, that’s the way it’s going. Since only the Pinnacle-class have a dedicated CO venue I am curious to see how the non-Pinnacle class CO plays out.
  12. There were no totes on the Zaandam end of May/beginning of June.
