  1. FWIW here is Nami Sushi menu with prices: http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/here/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Nami-Sushi.pdf
  2. No. Only the larger HAL ships (Nieuw Amsterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Konigsdam, and Eurodam) have the NY PIzza. The Konigsdam and Nieuw Statendam have added sandwiches to the NY Pizza so are called NY Pizz/Deli. The smaller HAL ships have a Taco Bar next to the indoor pool on Deck 9 that the larger ships do not have.
  3. If Carnival Corporation would allow loyalty rewards for all of their lines to be shared, there would be a lot of very happy cruisers willing to try all of the Carnival lines.
  4. Only the first Carnival cruise earns any Mariner credit.
  5. Just checked my brochure from June and noted that the Karsten's House buffet is open at 5:00 AM.
  6. You may order one entree, with as many appetizers and desserts you wish.
  7. Nice pics. I hope to get the same great weather on my Feb 2021 Antarctica cruise.
  8. On the larger ships, the NY Pizza makes individual-size pizzas to your specifications (choice and quantity of ingredients) and even provides a carry-out box if you want to take it to your room. The two largest HAL ships also have sandwiches. Here is the menu from the Nieuw Amsterdam (located on the Deck 9 by the outdoor aft pool): http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/photo-reviews/ms-nieuw-amsterdam-on-board-images/nieuw-amsterdam-dining-2/nieuw-amsterdam-dining-ny-pizza Here is the menu for the Konigsdam, including sandwiches (located above the indoor pool on Deck 9): http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/here/wp-content/gallery/ms-konigsdam-dining-options/IMG_2258-Edit-2.jpg
  9. There is no gluten-free option on the NY Piza menu. There are gluten free pastas at the Pasta Station in the Lido Market.
  10. You can always shop online: https://iditarodstore.com/apparel.html
  11. The indoor pool is also the movie theater at night when most of the lounge chairs are turned toward the giant screen and popcorn is available. I am not sure how this will work in Alaska when sunset is 9:30 PM and it is not very dark around the indoor pool.
  12. With the exception of items from the Specialty Restaurants, all Room Service is free. On the breakfast card, you can indicate as many guests as you wish. Here is the Room Service menu: http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/here/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Room-Service-and-Breakfast-Card.pdf FWIW The Neptune Lounge Conceirage can arrange to have your Main Dining Room evening meal served in your suite for you and guests at no extra charge. This meal will be served course by course by a dedicated waiter with a tip to your dedicated waiter being optional. White table cloth and table is provided. The meal can also be served on your veranadah if you wish. If you don't want the dedicated waiter or tablecloth, the meal will be delivered to your stateroom in one delivery.
  13. Here is a link that will be helpful in cruise-tour planning: https://www.hollandamerica.com/content/dam/hal/marketing-assets/manage-my-cruise-already-booked/faqs/Tour_Tips.pdf
  14. I fixed the links so you can see the images. "Club Orange perks will be included for passengers in Neptune and Pinnacle Suite categories, and the program will be available to purchase for a small number of non-suite staterooms on each sailing at a commissionable $50 per day premium for the first two guests in the room (both are required to purchase; no charge for thirds and fourths). " There is no requirement for you to eat in Club Orange for breakfast and dinner with the same menu (exception is an additional steak) available to all other passengers. You can eat with your daughter in the Main Dining Room every night and spend the savings on a fabulous Sel de Mer seafood dinner. Most passengers, when offered the option to pay for Club Orange, have declined. Paying $50/day for your daughter to eat with you (her friend will also be charged the same $50) is a decision to be made. For a 7-day cruise that means $750 increase in total fare costs. For breakfast you can host your daughter in your large stateroom, or perhaps on your verandah, using Room Service. As previously posted, you are a short elevator ride from the Room Service kitchen so your food will be perfect temperature and should arrive within 1-2 minutes of your requested time. Here is the FREE Room Service menu for Neptune Suites: http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/here/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Room-Service-Breakfast-PSNeptune-Suites.pdf
  15. I was not in a Neptune Suite on the Konigsdam but just two staterooms away on the aft. I didn't think the shower was too short in my stateroom but it was a little too close to the toilet. The Neptune Lounge Concierge will take good care of you and all of your needs. FWIW when you use your stateroom key to enter the lounge, your photo pops up on their computer screen so don't be surprised if they greet you by name the first time they see you. Here is a link to my photo review of the Konigsdam to give you an idea of what to expect: http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/photo-reviews/ms-konigsdam-on-board
