  1. I use my finger to hold the hook onto the bar and lift the bacon off with my fork onto plate. Easy to cut up and eat that way. Candied is not the best name as it is really not overly sweet.
  2. You can order as many sides and appetizers as you want. Additional entree is I believe $15 now. And yes- it is great!
  3. I know that they monitor social media as I have gotten a few responses to things I posted on CC.
  4. How well I remember sliding as far down in the seat as I could and holding a magazine in front of my face thinking "please don't see me" 😁
  5. There is a wall of windows next to the smoking area and a roof over. Smoke heads aft from that area.
  6. They have made us special request items in the PG at breakfast. Several times I have had Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice) for breakfast. We eat dinner exclusively in PG so the staff gets to know us. As long as they have the ingredients they are usually willing to fulfill requests at breakfast. I usually ask our server at dinner the night before and they pass the message along.
  7. Deserves more than just a like- Thank You!
  8. It is more like Pork Belly than "Bacon". We love it- the smoky flavor with maple is wonderful.
  9. We were on one cruise that had to fulfill 900 dinners. Nobody was getting changes and no one was able to book dinners on board- sold out for full cruise
  10. Sad news indeed. He did a wonderful job carrying the banner from the Van der Vorms.
  11. States that it is an upgrade in the same category. We all know this means that you can be "upgraded" to a location under the lido galley or a bar.
  12. With ship arriving from Europe likely will be Coast Guard as well as USPH inspections. VERY busy day for the crew in addition to turning the ship around for new passengers. Pretty much guarantee that even with the insanely busy day for them you will be greeted with warm smiles and welcomes. HAL crew is amazing!
  13. He said that the new game room addition to the kids' club will be available occasionally to the entire family. He mentioned skee-ball and pinball type machines as well as board games. He said that HAL was the top cruise line for multi-generational family cruising. EXC talks will be given by the Cruise and Travel Director. I figured that since this was a Facebook announcement was likely mostly rah-rah PR talk. Sounded more like an internal employee briefing video to me. "Big" announcements have been traditionally given in an orchestrated setting with travel industry people invited.
  14. Another exciting new revenue opportunity I'm sure.
