No Birthday Balloons

Recommended Posts

FYI there are no more birthday balloons for doors from HAL.  They said there is no more plastic on board. Also in the Retreat, the have glass bottles of water.

I was onboard the Amsterdam in November for my birthday. Until you mentioned the balloons, I realized I hadn’t even missed them. 
 

Cheers, Denise

Are they giving lids to the coffee you purchase in the explorations cafe?  I may have to pack my own travel cup if they don't.  Don't want to spill hot coffee on myself.

Are you sure they didn't say single-use plastic?

Thanks for the heads up.  For the heck of it,  I just logged into the site to check for my cruise and the birthday package (which included balloons) and the other package for couples that included balloons are no longer listed for purchase.

I had them on the Zuiderdam this month but we were in a Neptune Suite and the card was from our concierges Ann Margaret and Ruth and our stewards.    Pictured are the new water bottles available in the Retreat.

The glass would be nice too.  I am glad they are trying to make an effort.  The paper straws are still a learning curve.

I’m wondering when HAL will eliminate single serve boxes of cereal and small carton milk. Those create a ton of trash, 

Those are made of paper and cardboard, which incinerate very well.   Don't take away my Rice Crispies and bananas in my cabin every morning.

Acqua Panna  - my favorite italian spring water without fizz.

Carnival already has replaced individual cerral boxes with cereal dispensers ... so likely won't be long til they're onboard HAL ships
