  1. I’m not seeing 95% negative. OP gave several examples of positive things from their cruise. Let’s put this thread in context for newer members of the community. It’s quite likely you are missing the fact that OP has been a long standing contributor on this forum and experienced cruiser on HAL and does not come here to complain. He has a history of balanced and sensible posts.
  2. Wow. That’s not good. The door issues in your cabin didn’t get that way overnight. Serving spoiled food is unacceptable. So many of the things you mention sit squarely with management. Did you by chance miss a port where you were supposed to get provisions? (Meaning, could that be a reason for running out of so many things?)
  3. It’s at the end of the opening post. Remains of shattered window is middle right. Or is that one of the plastic covers?
  4. Thank you for taking us along. Like Cat, I think your thread is costing me a cruise Down Under. 😁
  5. You made me curious so I googled monk fish, and it sounded intriguing: “Cooked monkfish doesn't flake like most fish: They're juicy, with a nice bite and a texture similar to that of a cooked lobster. Flavor-wise, the fish is very mild, so it's receptive to many different preparations. It's particularly delicious with bright, acidic sauces.” Then I saw a picture: 😬😲
  6. I was wondering about that..... and if that was the FIRST device you put on the network, if it would work. Maybe if someone onboard starts the account with a device capable of creating a hot spot they can share the connection?
  7. If one buys a Future Cruise Credit onboard and holds it for several months or more before applying it to a specific cruise, when does the clock start for the purchase of preexisting condition coverage waived insurance?
  8. That information was missing from our last cruise (Prinsendam’s final sailing) as well, so we had to email HAL for the answer.
  9. Thanks. I’ll call first. I actually got a better price and refundable deposit from HAL through a private sale.
  10. Yes, thank you for posting it. I’m going to start the process for my Spring cruise. For those who use the Big Box, did you begin by faxing the form to HAL or by notifying the Big Box?
  11. Does Amsterdam still have a reformer in her gym?
  12. Thank you, Steve, for doing this Q and A. There is a possibility I may travel with a friend in the future. If one of us could not make the trip, the other would want to still go, so we would want the single supplement (SS) covered. 1) Do both parties have to buy the same coverage from the same vendor? 2) There is a significant age difference. I am still in my career and Medicare is several years ahead of me, while 1 potential travel partner has been on Medicare for about a decade. She has some medical issues that don’t interfere (now) with travel. Will her situation affect my rates on insurance that covers SS? 3) I have a relatively healthy, elderly parent, with medical conditions that are stable, and whose medications periodically change. I am POA. If I cancel because A) parent has a serious medical issue, or B) things are not looking good, but are stable or declining and not life threatening, can my travel partner still get the SS covered? Does this affect my partner’s rates? I’ve been traveling solo or with DH with my cruise line’s insurance, (which returns 90% back on the credit card used for cancel for any reason) and buying additional medical from you. This has worked because if needed we both cancel.
  13. I believe the OP (Never run with scissors, never take a 3 hour tour, and never fly in the day of the cruise) was meant to be a reference to that infamous voyage of the Minnow....
  14. Having been at my job well over 35 years I have a ton of vacation which my DH cannot match due to a more recent job change. So I cruise solo. ( just booked my 5th.) When people now ask If I’m going alone (with the shocked look) I say “no, with 1200 (Or whatever the ships capacity is) others”.
  15. So what is traditionally served at Canadian Thanksgiving?
