February 2020 Update: HAL Dry Docks, Charters & Groups

Recommended Posts

A little in advance, here is the February update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file.  

Not too much new activity, but with Europe 2021 now online the expectation is of more charters and groups over the coming months.

 

The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity.

If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

New information is shown in Red

Here's something for you.

https://www.daveramsey.com/cruise

This is on NSD on 22 March 20.

Reading the brochure,  it's in partnership with Inspirations Cruise.  

This might be a duplicate but at least this provides more information on the nature of the group/charter.

Until recently there was no cruise listed for the period 23 November - 06 December and information was that Noordam would have another dry dock even though she only had a dry dock in September/October 2019. It did seem unusual to have 2 dry docks within 14 months, but it had been a long time since Noordam's previous dry dock (April 2015) and perhaps required more work to update her.

Now that a cruise is listed, either plans have changed or they just left a gap in the schedule.

I think they only did half of the updates on the last drydock.  They will finish the updates on the next drydock.
