    Packing for cruise

    Same here, we cross-pack and put some of mine and some of hubby's in each suitcase. Works beautifully! [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Just Off Eurodam Alaska-Never Again

    Sorry to hear you were unable to get a children's menu in the MDR. DH sometimes has difficulty swallowing certain foods and our waiters were concerned that he wasn't eating enough, so suggested that he might like to try something from the children's menu... believe it or not, spag bol fast became a favourite!

    MS Veendam status? Plumbing and air conditioning?

    I too am feeling much better having read these positive feedbacks! I think we'll just relax and look forward to our next cruise on HAL... after all, they've never let us down yet! [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Forums

    MS Veendam status? Plumbing and air conditioning?

    We've cruised on the Maasdam four times, did a thirty-five day cruise on her earlier this year and had a wonderful time, now we have a cruise booked on the Veendam and I'm beginning to wonder if we've made a mistake... [emoji19] Sent from my iPad using Forums

    massdam questions

    Hi there! We were on the Maasdam for six weeks in January/February and there was no B.B. King Blues Band but there was an excellent piano player, Jamm The Pianoman, who played in the bar beside The Mix every evening. Hope this helps. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    HAL Muster Drill

    We were on a 39-day cruise on the Maasdam this January/February, Sydney to San Diego, and when new passengers boarded in Auckland we all had to attend a mandatory muster drill. Maybe it varies from ship to ship or itinerary to itinerary... Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Self service Laundry on Maasdam

    Yes, it does. We were on her just last month and they were still there. [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Longer Cruises

    We've jumped ship too! Having spent ten days on the Emerald Princess, we then took a taxi along the pier and boarded the Noordam for twenty-one days... it worked like a dream and gave us two very different experiences, both of which were wonderful! This time we will be spending thirty-two days on board the Koningsdam for a B2B European and Transatlantic cruise, then meeting our kids on board the Regal Princess for a fourteen Caribbean cruise on the day that we disembark!

    Do You Get Your Hair Cut/Styled Onboard?

    It sounds as if most people have had really good experiences, so I think maybe the time has come to take the plunge, have my first onboard haircut, and find out for myself! [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Do You Get Your Hair Cut/Styled Onboard?

    This is something that I've often wondered about when I read of people taking long cruises. The longest cruise we've been on so far is thirty days, so it hasn't arisen, but when you have a short hairdo that needs to be trimmed every five weeks or so, the question starts to loom large quite soon after that! Our next cruise will be forty-nine days, so I'm debating whether to brave the unknown of a new hairstylist or to just live with the feeling of being all shaggy and unkempt for a couple of weeks! [emoji3] Time will tell! I'd love to hear how others have fared and what their experiences have been with onboard hairstylists. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Veendam condition

    We're looking at booking on the Veendam too and are relieved to see all these positive reports. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. We had a bridge instructor on our 2014 30-day South Pacific cruise and her classes were incredibly well attended. I believe there were different sessions at different times, according to your level of play. Sent from my iPad using Forums
