  1. Figured the photo may help with locating it, lol! Will be interesting for some for the answer to this. Not all will have the HIA promotion.
  2. I took this photo a couple years ago as I wandered around the ship but I can’t remember where it was located on the ship. There was a pop one and a beer one I think?
  3. Yup. I had a difficult time with logging in as well. There’s an ongoing thread about all the log in and staying logged in issues. Very frustrating. I enjoy the exploration lattes and the Dutch Cafe ones as well-I think it’s a caramel macchiato I get-been almost 2 years since we’ve been on a HAL ship I forget! Dutch Cafe has the yummy ginger type cookies too.
  4. I’ve never been a fan of HAL’s desserts but do like their tarts & sundaes ☺️
  5. They used to, not sure any longer but they also forget. If you request it make sure you remind them of your special occasion. Usually it’s at dinner they do this.
  6. We were there a few years back and it looked so run down at that time. Was our first and last time in that area.
  7. What a beautiful clear day for your sail away. Enjoy your cruise!
  8. I jinxed myself last week too. Thought it was fixed but it isn’t. Extremely frustrating and waste of time always having to clear my cache or whatever it’s called then having to sign in again.
  9. Just like us when we have to fly to Ft Lauderdale from Vancouver. We are exhausted! Lol.
  10. Well worth it! It’s so much fun waking up in the morning and seeing your ship in port. I looked at the hotel website-roof top bar looks like a lovely spot. Have a good sleep! Big day tomorrow 🛳
  11. Glad you’ve made it there and taking it easy. Nice having dinner close to your hotel. The room photo looks great-did you ask for a room with a view of the cruise ships? We’ve only stayed at Best Western Plus Bayside (they used to have a view before someone built another high rise) or the Wyndham Bayside where we always book a view of the ships. We love walking around in the evening usually in Little Italy. (Hubby is Italian, lol). Lots of people watching, music, etc. and we usually dine in one of the many restaurants in Little Italy. However, I also insist when we are there for either lunch or supper at the Cheesecake Factory (we don’t have any in Vancouver) and we share their stuffed mushrooms and large Cobb salad-delicious! Have a great relaxing evening before boarding tomorrow.
  12. I think it had to do with no sink/water/cleaning station or something. We really enjoyed the pig bbq on a couple of HAL Mexico cruises then disappointed when we were told they couldn’t do them any more.
  13. Awesome!! Wish we were on this cruise too. Will be fun to tag along on this thread reading your opinion as well. We just love San Diego and the Koningsdam. I’ve been on that ship over 40 days total and even my hubby liked it, lol. Hope you enjoy the zoo and your seafood dinner. Bon voyage!
  14. So glad your flight so far was easy. Let’s hope everything else goes smooth. At least you won’t have to worry about the ton of kids on your flight being on your cruise!
  15. It’s a shame but I’m glad we got to experience the pig roast on the aft deck a few years back. It was such fun for all.
