  1. Is it possible to use Carnival Corp gift cards to pay for a portion of our upcoming HAL cruise? We would like to use some of our credit card reward points which allow us to buy these gift cards. We would of had to book directly with the credit card travel department to initially use the points but prefer booking with our personal TA.
  2. Thanks for your help! Sorry-I forgot to mention it is Port Everglades.
  3. We will be on the Koningsdam in February 2020. Does this ship still offer a luggage direct option at the end of the cruise so we don’t have to deal with our luggage?
  4. I am about to book a cruise on the Koningsdam - what are the differences between a veranda cabin and vista suite? The descriptions on the website seem so similar.
  5. We sailed on the Koningsdam last winter for our first HAL experience and really enjoyed it. My one major disappointment was the cleanliness of the retreat cabanas especially the curtain dividers. Any recent experiences and opinions?
  6. We were in a Neptune on the K’dam last month and ate breakfast and dinner in the new Orange Club dining room instead of the Pinnacle.
  7. Have a great time! We just returned to Ohio from a wonderful 11 days on the Koningsdam! I am looking forward to reading about your experiences on the Nieuw Statendam.
  8. We are on the Koningsdam right now and are somewhat confused by the luggage direct program that we have used on previous cruise lines. We are flying Southwest and the program states it only accepts Southwest for Saturday flights? Am I reading this right? Just seems odd that it only works on Saturday disembarks.
  9. We were just in Ft Lauderdale last week staying at the Embassy Suites. Kelly’s is an easy walk but we were very disappointed with the food and service. The next night we went to the Boathouse just a little further and had a wonderful dinner. Check out their happy hour for drinks and great appetizers.
  10. Thank you all for so many great suggestions! We can’t wait to board!!
  11. We are cruising on HAL for the first time on the Koningsdam staying in a Neptune suite. What are the first things we should explore after boarding? We would like to also check on reservations for the main dining room -is the Maitre D available during boarding and where? Where can we buy WiFi? Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  12. We will be arriving around 6 pm tonight and are looking for a good restaurant for dinner in walking distance of the Embassy Suites 17th Street . Thanks!
  13. We are first timers with HAL and will be on the Koningsdam next month-. Do they ever offer new and additional shore excursions on board?
  14. We will be on the Koningsdam in February stopping in St. Lucia and wondering if anyone has done the Segway Sightseeing and Beach excursion - we have never been on a Segway .
  15. A few years ago we enjoyed this beach break excursion-the beach and food were awesome! We will again be in St Martin in February and wondering if anyone has recently been here. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
