  1. I found the round daybed/lounger to be very comfortable. It was large enough for two adults to share and once a grandchild napped there with us.
  2. I hadn't thought about the chair noise. I am glad you mentioned it.
  3. We are looking forward to the day the pandemic is over and we can take a cruise to celebrate DH's retirement. We often choose a veranda cabin near the forward elevator on the Navigation deck. Since the Pinnacle class ships have outdoor movies shown near the Lido pool area we likely to hear movie noise in our cabin? Thanks for any info or experience, Marcia
  4. While doing research on cabanas I read one post which stated that the Eurodam lido cabanas had been moved to the other side of the pool to match those on the Nieuw Amsterdam. I want to confirm that this is accurate information. Would the congestion of people waiting for their Dive In order bother the people in the first few cabanas? Thanks Marcia
  5. Does anyone know if the lido cabanas are taken down on the day that the Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam go through the locks on Panama Canal cruises? This would create more viewing space for passengers to view the locks. I have seen them taken down for special events so I am wondering about canal days. We will reserve a lido cabana but its availability/ or not will determine which cabin we choose. Thanks Marcia
  6. Since Holland America charges earn double points (I assume that is still correct information), I book my shore excursions and indulgences prior to redeeming my points. I called to redeem my points as soon as the final cruise payment appeared on my credit card statement. It did not completely pay for the cruise but it sure helped. Marcia
  7. Have you seen the Retreat? There were reports that the Koningsdam retreat was cramped and generally less desirable than the retreat on the other HAL ships. I wondered if the Nieuw Stantendam had improved that situation. Thanks
  8. I have stayed in cabins on the 8th deck. In fact this is our desired location....no problems with motion. This may be different on a transatlantic cruise. Cabins directly under the pools may have a bit noise. Under the spa or under the lido restaurant are usually quiet.
  9. Does the explorations café still serve pastries and snacks?
  10. If it makes a difference, I was thinking of Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam.
  11. Just wondering...how late does the ocean bar usually have music? and what type of music?
  12. I am looking at cruises to Hawaii however DH is very emphatic that he won't go without a cabana. When crossing the Pacific does the retreat get a lot of wind? Is it still a good experience? Thanks Marcia
