  1. ?????? In over 200 nights on HAL ships I have never needed to walk through the casino to get to dinner.
  2. Go to 'Cruise Activities' then 'Beverages'
  3. Have the managers of all brain surgery hospitals had brain surgery? I have had the surgery (got the scar to prove it) but there is no way that I could manage the hospital.
  4. An increase of a 50% discount on specialty restaurant surcharges and specialty coffees in all dining venues*, wine packages*, beverages in the Explorations Café* and all mini-bar purchases*
  5. We are Platinum on NCL and never have we had to pre-approve such an amount. https://www.ncl.com/nz/en/faq#!#onboard-expenses NCL FAQ - How do I pay for onboard expenses? For your convenience, all shipboard expenses are charged to your Onboard account. Sign up when you check in, establishing your method of payment with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB Card, Diner's Club. You may also use your debit card however please be advised that we obtain pre-authorisation, as we do for all Credit Cards, and some banks hold these funds for up to 30 days
  6. The "Save on Sunshine" promotion that is on right now offers reduced deposits.
  7. I know that some people also have a problem with their home closet clothing as well. When they get home from their cruise they find that everything has shrunk! 😀
  8. https://www.globenettravel.com.au/cruises/sydney_port_cruise_schedule.asp You will be docked at White Bay
  9. Nothing is free. You will be paying for it in the price of your cruise.
  10. I will be following. I love reading sensible, thoughtful blogs.
  11. If you have your computer onboard, go to the HAL Navigator and find the leave a message page. Or you can use the card that is left in the folder on your bed each evening, or you can go to the front desk and ask for a comments card. I always look for positive things to say about the crew to try and balance out the stream of petty complaints that they are subjected to from some passengers.
  12. Don't forget to send a message of thanks to the laundry workers - it makes their day - they generally just get complaints. One cruise last year the head of housekeeping knocked at our cabin door to say thank you for my message. This year one of the front office rang to say that she had passed the message on and that the workers "are going to love getting this message!" 😀
  13. HAL web sales still show it for the 15th. Who told you that it had changed?
  14. The tone of this thread is why we choose to always sit at two tops in the MDR.
  15. A romantic package for the two of you and a perfect gift for honeymooners, the Just for Us Package includes one dozen roses, one bottle of Nicholas Feuillattes, two luxurious waffle terry bathrobes, one evening of dessert and champagne served in your stateroom, one afternoon tea delivered to your stateroom, a private table for two in the dining room, two indulgent 25-minute aromatherapy massages at the Greenhouse Spa, dinner for two in the elegant Pinnacle Grill, and a 10x7 photo sheet to preserve the memory of your cruise together. Pinnacle Grill dinner reservations to be made by the guest on board. A 15% service charge is included in the price of the item. You must be 21 years of age or older to order and receive alcoholic beverages. HAL would not offer this if people were not prepared to pay. It may seem ridiculous to you, but it is obviously not to others.
