Not impressed, especially when I have no use for 90% of the awards they are offering.

I'm very disappointed that they are discontinuing the medals as we would have recevied our 500 day medal on our next cruise. We've worked hard and spent a lot of money to get this far.

Got some good news today.

HAL has decided, after I am sure being swamped with many complaints, to reinstate the 300, 500 & 700 day Medallions.

I am sure there will be a lot of happy Mariners.

I saw an announcement on HAL's Facebook page that Medallions have been reinstated.

I'm happy not only they decided to keep the Medallion Program but am especially happy they listened to the many comments Mariners made about wanting to keep the Medallions.

Thumbs up in both regard.

And for those of us who have 90 plus days (just short of a 100)...another pin instead of the copper medallion. Good thinking HAL!
