  1. KroozNut is correct. I would remind you to also be sure to factor in the time it takes to return to the ship. For example, when we were in Kotor on the Celebrity Silhouette, our ship was as close to the Old Town as was possible. You may want to find out where the Westerdam will dock and see if you need to add travel time back to your ship. (BTW, we prefer to cruise with Holland America and Disney now).😊
  2. What incredible pictures, Tony! Thank you for sharing them! I have former ESL students who returned to Japan when their husbands were transferred back to their homeland. I’d love to visit someday!
  3. My husband and I have never felt “trapped” on a HAL cruise and have been able to find quiet spaces on each ship. Our favorite ships are those with libraries and promenade decks where you can walk outside or simply relax in a chair. I would suggest at least having a stateroom with a view as there are many beautiful views in New Zealand. Our 2018 NZ cruise lasted 18 days as we embarked in Sydney, Australia and debarked in Auckland, NZ. The cruise also spent three days in Tasmania. We’ve loved every cruise we’ve taken and this one was one of our favorites! Enjoy!!
  4. Thanks for sharing! I’m looking forward to the SS Rotterdam’s inaugural voyage!
  5. Thanks again!! Forgot to mention that the Premiere Voyage on August 1 is our 1st Inaugural Cruise. So excited and blessed!!
  6. Thank you for doing this! We are on the MS Rotterdam VII’s Premiere Voyage, August 1, 2021 B2B with European Splendor, August 8, 2021 B2B with Viking Sagas, August 22, 2021 for a total of 28 days on the Rotterdam and celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Darjeeling
  7. Always the eternal optimist, DH and I have booked Rotterdam VII’s Premiere Voyage, European Splendor and Viking Sagas, August 1-29, 2021!
  8. Thank you! My hubby and I met him on the Veendam and would like to know what happens to him. We knew he is Polish. It’s my heritage, too!😊
  9. Hi Richwmn, I just started following The Daily—very interesting! My husband and I are on the Rotterdam VII Premiere Voyage, etc., etc. I was wondering if you know what may happen to the cruise staff of the HAL ships that were sold recently. I’m especially interested to know where the former Veendam captain (I think his name is Marek) ends up!?! Donna (Darjeeling)
