Talking Web Cam on ms Amsterdam?

Sorry is this is totally old news, but is there a Web Cam on the ms Amsterdam that one can view online on the Holland America website as one can do for the Queens on the Cunard website? As a solo traveller, I am increasingly looking towards HAL to save my soul for a World Cruise, but I do want to follow the 2010 World Cruise very closely as I know a dear lady and long-time Cunarder who is on the jaunt on the ms Amsterdam --- and loves it! HAL unfortunately does not offer all the benefits for a World Cruiser that Cunard does to all levels of society and for all cabins and does not offer the Internet benefits and the paid gratuities for all World Cruisers regardless of Cabin selections.

There are bow and stern cams on all HAL ships, but none are on the web.

If you know the itinerary, you can go to kroooz-cams.com and see if any other ships are in port that day, and check out the port cams to see if you can catch the ship. Check out cruisett.com for ships in port, and cruisetimetables.com for same. I belong to another cruising forum where we 'stalk' our members using these tools. EM

Another useful tracker is http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shi...html?call=PBAD, here you can see wave heights water and air temp, path of travel etc. We used this a lot on our last voyage so that our friends could see where we were.

The problem with sailwx is that the info is from voluntary reporting, and is often many days out of date. When we went through the Panama Canal we gave that URL to our family and friends ... and for 11 or 12 days it showed us still in the Caribbean.

Hi Don,

Great to see you on these boards. I, too, am have so much fun following the various world cruise blogs. Have you looked at Jeff's blog from the Amsterdam? His photos are just amazing.

It was delightful to meet you on the QM2. I do hope our paths cross on another cruise sometime - perhaps a world cruise!

Beth

Here's another site for wave heights.....http://www.oceanweather.com/data/
Not sure if it is realtime.
