  1. Coronavirus Update Friends are on the 2nd leg of the 30 day cruise on Holland America’s Westerdam, originally scheduled from Singapore to Shanghai. Since leaving Hong Kong last Saturday, they have been at sea. Manila and ports in Taiwan have denied entry because of the stop in Hong Kong. They were told yesterday that they will get on land in our first port in Japan on Friday. Their return to the US was to be from Tokyo on the 15th. BUT ...Cruise Update... NOW...the Captain announced that the Japanese authorities had denied the Westerdam entrance into any port in Japan. All the remaining ports on this cruise as well as the port of departure, Yokohama, are in Japan. Therefore, Holland America has cancelled the remainder of their cruise which was originally scheduled to end February 15. Still to be determined is where the ship goes now, from somewhere in the Philippine Sea, to ??? somewhere so they can disembark and fly home or to Seattle.
  2. Does Koningsdam Spa room include complimentary use of their Thalassotherapy Pool? We recently booked an outside spa room on an 11 day Southern Caribbean cruise. We chose this room category because when we have previously purchased a spa room on Carnival ships (Breeze, Dream, Magic and Splendor) or any Norwegian Cruise Line; unlimited use of the Thalassotherapy Pool is always included with the purchase of a spa room. Now I am questioning our choice since everything I have read on line indicates that free thermal suite access is NOT included with a spa room on the Koningsdam or Nieuw Statendam. If someone can answer this question, we would surely appreciate your responses.
