Hal assistance when you leave ship due to illness.

Recommended Posts

We thank Holland American for the way they looked after us on our recently health problem.  We had to leave the ship in New Caledonia.  Hal arranged for a hotel and transportation for my wife to travel back and forth to the hospital.  They assisted us in arranging flights home, after we had to cancel our hotel in Sydney and our flights home to Canada.  The hospital in Noumea was very good and took care of me very well.  We are very thankful for their assistance.  Our faith was greatly helpful in keeping us calm and sure that all would work out and it did.

Oh dear.  I am very sorry to hear of your illness and I wish you continued recovery to full health.  It is nice to hear HAL was able to assist in your time of need.  Did you have their travel insurance?

Sorry to hear of your illness and hope you continue to improve.  Good to know HAL was able to help you.

It reminds me of the lesson that you don't know how good your insurance company or coverage is until you have a claim. It is great reassurance to know that HAL came through in your time of need. 

Here's hoping for a swift and complete recovery -- and a boatload of blessings!

Thank you Borden for taking the time to tell us how HAL took care of your wife with hotel and transportation arrangements during your hospital stay.  And how they helped in arranging new flights home and cancelling your other hotel stay.

 

Hope you are feeling better.

HAL personnel certainly do it right when it comes to helping folks with medical disembarkation.  Hopefully a full recovery is in order for you, with more cruising in your future.

 

Smooth Sailing!  🙂🙂🙂

I am sorry to hear about your illness but glad that HAL helped you arrange everything. I am also glad to hear that the hospital was good. On our cruise, a passenger had to disembark in Noumea and I hoped he would be able to get first rate care in their hospital.

 

I hope you are fine again and ready for your next cruise.

It sounds like you were on the same cruise I was, the Noordam repositioning from Vancouver to Sydney that began Oct. 13. It's so nice to hear the rest of the story and that you got such great care from HAL and the doctors in Noumea. All the best to you and your wife!
