  1. Thanks @catl331 and @Jeannie50 for your useful info. I asked for a second quote in another agency and I'm being offered a VB cabin (4152) now. Per the HAL Facts website you posted, it should be similar to the 4156. Aft cabin, full view of the ocean, for a little less. Disadvantage is I only get 100 OBC instead of 450 OBC, but in reality I think it's a no brainer. Regards!
  2. Hi, I'm booking 21-day Viking Sagas & Northern Isles on July 26th on Nieuw Statendam, later today (very few verandas remain!!!). This itinerary (https://www.hollandamerica.com/es_ES/find-a-cruise/E0N21E/J051A.html) does not go to Bergen (but goes to Flam - hopefully - and Stavanger). Do you recommend / is it possible to take a tour from one of those ports to Bergen? Is it worth it?
  3. Thanks so much for posting pics 🙂 Unfortunately layout is different from NA (that's why the cabin is VH in the NA) and hence it does have a full view of the lifeboat. I'm trying to get other options in the meantime. It does come with 450 USD OBC, so I might as well not care, if there is no other option at the same price 🙂
  4. Thanks Jeannie50. I just realized my sailing is on the MS Nieuw Statendam, not on the MS Nieuw Amsterdam. Do you think it will make any difference? Does anyone else have info?
  5. Hi all, just to know if somebody else has travelled on cabin 4054 on the Nieuw Amsterdam recently (the last post of this thread is from 2017). This cabin is now categorized as a VH, Partially Obstructed view (at least from the agency I'm getting quotes from). According to Jeannie50 and wldflr's posts, this cabin corresponds to the pictures and is awesome. I'm about to book on this cabin for a Norway cruise :) Thanks for any additional info/pics you might have :)
