  1. Looking for information on MDR menus and daily activities on sea days (especially any cooking related activities) currently offered on the Koningsdam Caribbean 11 day southern cruises. Departing March 4, 2020.
  2. Just got this reply from HAL Ship Services regarding ATK. "We are now offering a new program called Port To Table. Please see the below description from our website of this new program. Each voyage brings a guest chef on board to guide you through the culinary traditions of your destinations. Try local flavors at a food & wine tasting, add a new recipe to your repertoire at a live cooking demonstration or indulge your senses at a fine dining event. For those looking to continue their epicurean immersion on shore, guest chefs lead select shore excursions*, exploring local cuisines while sharing their gastronomic expertise in the field. *Shore excursions and fine dining events require an additional cost. " Hope they have this in place by my March cruise on the Koningsdam.
  3. Does anyone know if ATK is still available on the Koningsdam? We are sailing in March. If still available is it just the free demos or the demos and hands-on-class that you pay to attend. I have enjoyed the previous hands-on-classes (chocolate cake, pasta and eggs) that I have attended in the past.
  4. Thanks for the information. I am sad that it will not be available.
  5. Does the Komningsdam offer Dinner in the Culinary center? I can not find it listed on the web page under the dinner options. I have seen articles about the dinner but not able to find any information on the site for my March 2020 cruise. Also does the ATK offer the hands-on-workshops on some shore days? I have enjoyed them in the past and know that you sign-up for them while on the ship.
  6. The Hands-on-workshops are not on the daily schedule. Last June I went to the guest services to find which port days and times they were being held. They offered 2 classes on a 14 day cruise. I got into both the workshops and one was just me and the ATK chef which was great fun. Yes 5 Star Mariners get this as a perk but they must reply to their invitation and if they do not it is open to any one that wishes to pay for the class. You get the recipes and an apron that you wore during your class. They had about 6 different classes that the ATK chef will choose to present. They were egg, pasta, cake decorating, pies and a couple I can't think of currently. When you finish with the hour long class, you get to sample the recipes that were made in and they serve coffee and tea. On the ships I have taken the classes we were in the Culinary Center that doubles as an the B B King area. We were not allowed to eat what we made but the recipe was prepared in the ships kitchen using the recipes due to health regulations.
