  1. We have been to Cunard’s QM2 twice. Love their dance floor and the music. But the ship’s staterooms need update. The public area is well maintained though. So, sometimes I do want to try new ships. But it is so unfortunate that HAL management changes their old traditional entertainment and does not accommodate the ballroom dancers any more. Otherwise, we and our group of dance friends would love HAL’s new ships.
  2. In which case, HAL may need to consider bringing Ballroom Blitz in the Queen’s Lounge with recorded music. It doesn’t cost HAL anything.
  3. We sailed on Koningsdam in 2016 and hoped that we could do the excursion during the day time and dance after dinner or theater shows. The bands there were not knowledgeable on ballroom music tempo. If you like disco music, or just move your body on the dance floor, BB King Blue band is for you. But not for us. So, we had the most boring cruise in our experience and we swore that we would not go back to Koningsdam. We told our dance friends not to bother with this ship although the food offered in the MDR was not bad. HAL has a new ship, Nieuw Statendam in 2018. I notice that HAL made some changes and anticipate some changes made. I talked to my DH and thought that we may try the new ship since I really like the dance floor on the Queen's Lounge. After I read this CC review on Nieuw Statendam, I don't think we will try the new ship. It seems that HAL didn't change at all. I share his frustration. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=653027
  4. Great review! Thanks! just wonder if you saw anyone dancing ballroom? Waltz, Foxtrot, Rumba, Cha Cha. Not only disco type dance.
  5. Edge is not for us and our dance friends. We love ballroom dancing. No ballroom and it means we won’t consider EDGE at all.
  6. Any one dancing on the ship? Thanks,
  7. Any one dancing on the dance floor in the Ocean Bar, or Queen's lounge? Thanks!
  8. Looks like lots of sea weed on the shore and sand. Also lots of rocks on the sand too.
  9. We sailed in May 2017. The weather was good although a bit colder. But we felt comfortable. Besides, the waterfall scene was better.
  10. Our TA has 39 passengers on board for the same cruise (2 weeks ago, she brought 110 PAX onboard). I think they will stay in the Queen’s room dancing every night. One lady reported that there was a couple getting married in the Queen’s room around the high tea time. Any one saw that?
  11. The front desk staff needs more training to deal with customers. Last time we were on Koningsdam, I saw how the front desk manager dealt with customers with very rude manner.
  12. Dancers don’t drink. They drink water to keep hydrated. When they dance, they sweat. This means cruise ships are losing revenue on drink. But they neglect the fact that dancers bring in other passengers to the area since some passengers enjoy watching them dancing at the same time listening to the live band music.
