T-Shirt Reveal and Booked Guest Information

Now sharing the 2023 Malt Shop Memories Cruise T-Shirt design!! This year, we’ll be delivering the t-shirt to your cabin on the first night of the cruise, so you don’t have to worry about packing it!

If your craft room is your happy place, then you’ll be excited to learn that the Nieuw Amsterdam now has an Arts Studio on Deck 11 forward (in the Crow’s Nest), which will be available for T-shirt decorating this year!  StarVista LIVE will provide a few portable hand sewing machines, glue guns, scissors, fabric paint, beads, bobbles, and a few other goodies to get you started. Hours of operation will be posted on the daily program you receive onboard.

If you would like to bring something more to add to your unique creation you can. Please be sure to check the HAL website (scroll down to Baggage Policies & Packing Advice) or what cannot be brought onboard, like irons, steamers.

If you’re flying to FLL, keep in mind TSA will allow “Circular thread cutters or any other cutter or needlepoint tools that contain blades must be placed in checked baggage. You are permitted to keep scissors smaller than 4 inches in your carry-on baggage.” See what you can bring on a flight here.

We will continue the tradition of the T-shirt contest at the end of the show so you can show off your crafting skills.
