Default Happy Hour

Do HAL ships still have their "Happy Hour" poolside late afternoon? Also do they have their late night crew show. It is always so enjoyable - seeing the hard working staff doing something they enjoy.

Don't ever remember "Happy Hour" poolside in the later afternoon. Often when a ship is leaving the port mid-afternoon, they will have a sailaway party on the aft deck, serving drinks and natchos, etc.


Yes, they still have the Crew Show. On a 7 day cruise, one week it will be the Indonesian crew and the next the Filipino crew. They are enjoyable and we always support the hard working crew by attending their show.

On my last cruise on Zaandam to Hawaii last Dec, they offered Happy Hour in the afternoon at both Crows Nest and Ocean Bar. All drinks were 1/2 price from 4 to 5pm.

This was a 15 day cruise. Indonesian and Fillipino crew put on one show each. Both were outstanding.

Earl - on 7-10 cruises there is only one crew show, but on longer cruises, like 14+ days, they usually have both a Filipino and an Indonesian shows - on different nights.

I can remember the "old" days, when they had both shows the same night - made for a very late night.

We were on the Zuiderdam in 2007 and they did have happy hour from 4-6. I think it was only two afternoons

Thanks for your replies. We are travelling with two couples - one that really enjoyed the Happy Hour and another that hasn't had the pleasure of HAL so know a good time will be had by all.
