  1. DH wants to bring a 6 pack of Pepsi on our next cruise, which is on HAL Nieuw Amsterdam. As we understand it, they do not carry Pepsi, only Coke products. Does anyone know if this is allowed? Thanks.

  3. We just returned from May 7-14, 2016 Alaska cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam. We decided to book a fully obstructed cabin, knowing we just need to see some daylight in our room and would be on other decks of the ship a lot. We were pleasantly surprised with our view in HH 4127: This is at the back of a lifeboat. Note that there are three taller tenders on each side of the ship that would obstruct your view further. The window is floor to ceiling but does not open. Hope that helps a future cruiser in this type of cabin. Cheers! klvn8r

  5. HAL Nieuw Amsterdam arrives is Sete at 8 am. My tour begins at 9 and is 15 minutes away by taxi. Will I have enough time? The tour company says yes, that many of their guests are from the cruise ship. It seems doable IF the ship is on time and we can debark quickly. Opinions, please?

  8. Good evening, Jacqui!!! Nancy and I have booked the following: November 10th 2019 Nieuw Statendam 7-days Eastern Caribbean December 7th 2019 Nieuw Amsterdam 7-days Tropical Caribbean thank you doing this!
  9. Just got off the 16 day Panama on the Nieuw Amsterdam in a SS. Excellent trip all the way around and will review once completely unpacked but still scratching my head why oh why can they not provide a coffee maker in the suite or any cabin for that matter? I understand room service is always available but on the days you don't want to set that alarm for room service or call and wait for the first cup o joe to be delivered makes us crazy. So much so we brought a Thermos this time and filled it before we went to bed.
  10. Is anyone familiar with this suite? It's one of the last available and we weren't sure about it's aft location. The concern is noise from above or below, ease of getting on/off for excursions. Thanks!
  11. Thinking of booking this cabin! Any other pictures or comments about 4127 (fully obstructed) on the Nieuw Amsterdam would be appreciated. Besides the view, how was the location? Convenient? Quiet or noisy? Thanks.

  13. Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam are our favorites!!! First a wonderful promenade where you still can relax with loungers and the great Tamarind and PG!Yes they are older and for us unfortunately we will have to be on the Koningsdam in 2021 for our itinerary at our home in San Diego doing Hawaii/ Mexico 24 days! Wish it was on another HAL ship. The promenade s on NS and Koningsdam are narrow no room with a lounger . Sure others might like the new Pinnacle Class ships but not for us. we also like Maasdam much smaller too! the signature suites are big and love the Neptunes. Did the inaugural in2010 on Nieuw Amsterdam been on her 4 times and Eurodam 4 also! Enjoy her she is great! go up to silk den next to Tamarind and enjoy cocktails and a magnificent view! We have eaten appetizers in there as dinner and it was wonderful! Denise😊
  14. There are two ships in at Grand Turk this morning, including the NIEUW AMSTERDAM.

  16. Just checking about drinking water available on the NA. Is there a place on board that has water for filling water bottles other than the tap in the nearest sink?
  17. Is Distilled water available on the Nieuw Amsterdam. How do you request it?
  18. Haven’t been in HAL in many years and I’m looking to try again and would appreciate any feedback. Our one and only HAL cruise was 9 years ago on the Maasdam. 14 days with the most amazing Caribbean itinerary. But we were bored on the ship. Best entertainment was the crew show. We really enjoyed that. Rest of the entertainment was a xylophone player and a violinist. Not our cup of tea. We've mostly sailed Princess, but it seems that with the new ships, the ship is the destination, Not the itinerary. Don’t get me wrong, the ship is very important, as is the itinerary. Quite frankly we’re getting bored with Princess’ same Caribbean ports and we’re looking for a change. Last few cruises we didn’t bother to get off the ship. Now to my question, 2 ships, same itinerary. If you had to choose between the Nieuw Amsterdam and the Nieuw Statendam, which would you choose and why? We are in out early 70’s and fairly active. We only want to compare the ships, not the ports as we’ve been to them before, just not on the same cruise. The ports offered are the relaxing beach ports. Just what we need right now. Thanks in advance.
  19. We've sailed twice on the Nieuw Amsterdam, most recently in February 2019, and on the Eclipse 3 times, most recently in March 2018. In each case, we've been very happy with the ship and would embark again on either one without hesitation. The Eclipse, whose maiden voyage was in April 2010, holds 2850 passengers. The slightly smaller Nieuw Amsterdam, which holds 2106 passengers, had her maiden voyage three months later. Based on our latest sailings, both are in excellent condition. There are far too many potential points of comparison to try to go through, and many are pretty subjective. For example, the Nieuw Amsterdam doesn't have the larger production shows like Topper, but does have things like the B.B. King Blues Club. The Eclipse has its lawn, but the Nieuw Amsterdam has a full promenade deck. Given identical itineraries, pricing, cabins, etc., I'd be very hard pressed to make a choice between the two. It would probably come down to something as minor as Café al Bacio versus the Explorations Café. The former used to be my favourite coffee shop on land or at sea, but the crowding is destroying it. The Explorations Café and the wonderful views from the Crows Nest make it hard to beat. All in all, my nod might go to the Nieuw Amsterdam, yet my next two bookings are on the Eclipse and the Equinox.
  20. One way around the crowded Lido Deck where we truly could find no place to sit at lunch is to purchase a Retreat Cabana. Yes, it's expensive for the week, but we purposely booked a lower category cabin, either an inside (huge cabins on Deck One) or an outside on the same deck. With the money we saved, we bought the cabana package. I highly recommend the Retreat (not to be confused with the Lido Cabana spaces) because you have a butler who will wait on you hand and foot. On my most recent cruise aboard Oosterdam (yes, different class ship but same idea with the Retreat), our steward would bring us breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack which included champagne. The Retreat gives you a designated place to sit; it's quiet; the service is amazing. Be aware that the ship will close this area if the winds are too high. You won't receive a refund for any unused days; however, we've never had this happen on any of our cruises. Just be aware that it can happen. The menu offers selections from the Lido Marketplace, so you don't have to contend with lines or crowds. Our steward even offered to order/pick up Dive In orders or fetch ice cream from the Lido, so we really didn't have to do anything for lunch/snacks but sit and wait for our requests to be fulfilled. You will also receive bottled waters and fruit. You will be totally pampered and spoiled. If you want to dip a toe in the pool, it's steps away if you take the outside stairs down to the Lido Pool. If this idea appeals to you, order before your cruise to avoid disappointment. These cabanas can sell out prior to the cruise. Enjoy. As for Eurodam, it's been at least 5 years since we've cruised on this ship; however, she is similar to her sister, Nieuw Amsterdam. Both have Tamarind, a unique Pan Asian restaurant, which is well worth the money.
  21. Question: So HAL is not changing the Pinnacle breakfast on the Nieuw Amsterdam? Good to hear! Love the Pinnacle. We eat there every night.
  22. HAL has sailed variations of that route for many years. Sete is pretty new, but the other ports are very common...we did many of them in 2010 on Noordam. We are booked on Nieuw Amsterdam about a month after you for 24 days, eastern Med. We have sailed on her twice before...we like her. Do you have specific questions? For port activities, your excursions should be available...what interests you? Check the Ports boards...many can be done on your own, or with private vendors for better experiences.

  24. It's finally here - the start of the 2019-2020 Port Everglades sail-away season! For anyone new or who may have forgotten, here is the map of Port Everglades. Zaandam will be at pier 26 (where most of the HAL ships dock) port to from 0530-1700. She will be heading out on a 17-day Inca and Panama Canal Discovery cruise. Fort Lauderdale, Florida (16 Oct d1700); Oranjestad, Aruba (19 Oct 0800-2300); Panama Canal (Cruising Canal) (21 Oct 0500-0500); Panama City, Panama (21 Oct 2000(+1)1700); Manta, Ecuador (24 Oct 0500-1900); Salaverry (Trujillo), Peru (26 Oct 0300-1700); Callao (Lima), Peru (27 Oct 1000(+1)1800); Pisco, Peru (29 Oct 0700-1600); Coquimbo (La Serena), Chile (01 Nov 0700-1600); San Antonio, Chile (02 Nov a0700) There are no other ships in port. The PTZtv webcams can be found at https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ and https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/. Also, Nieuw Amsterdam will be in Aruba from 0800-1700. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.portarubawebcam.com/. For the addicts - Zuiderdam will be in New York City on 17 October from 0800-1800 (https://www.nyharborwebcam.com/ and https://www.portnywebcam.com/). Volendam will be in FLL on the 18th from 0700-1200. She will be heading to Freeport for drydock so her departure may be much later than noon. I am not going to start separate threads for these two. We can use this one if anyone is watching and wishes to post. Next up: Nieuw Amsterdam on 19 October.
  25. I am now booked on a HAL( came back from Princess) cruise sailing on the beautiful Nieuw Amsterdam. I booked a balcony cabin on deck 5, next to the elevator. I have been in a cabin like this before, but it was a while ago, and I don't remember. I would like to know how much of a view do you get from the elevator into my cabin. I not worried about the balcony view, just the cabin. Thank you
