  3. Sailing up the river to Kotar. I couldn't believe a ship as large as the Nieuw Amsterdam could navigate such a spectacular seaway through beautiful mountains, small villages and islands.

  7. Must only be bookable internally by HAL agents as it does not yest appear in the Travel Agent booking system (POLAR) or on the HAL website. From your statement I'm assuming it's the Rotterdam VII on either a 10 or 11 night Southern Caribbean sailing, which would fit the pattern of them deploying their newest vessel on that route pattern the last few years. FYI - There is no "Nieuw" in the name of the Rotterdam, she is merely Rotterdam (or Rotterdam VII if one wants to be technical). The only ships with "Nieuw" officially in the name are Nieuw Statendam and Nieuw Amsterdam.

  12. I would not have considered one, until my cruise on MSC Seaside. That one, you had to put your cruise card into the slot to operate the lights. Now, we had this on Nieuw Amsterdam, and MSC Divina, but with those, any card would do. Not on Seaside. It had to be the current card. Since I was usually the one to open the cabin door, my card went into the slot. But I am the early riser, and taking my card when I left the cabin, would have left my sister in the dark... So I would have to hunt up her card and put it in the slot. So I got the bracelet, and it worked wonderfully. Did everything but clock me on and off the ship. EM

  14. Carnival is is booking through spring of 2023 actually. They are a different brand with a different market segment. It’s not unusual for their client base to book 15, 18, 24+ months out for a 3 or 4 day cruise and want to pay $25/month to pay it off. Additionally far fewer of their ships change itineraries or home ports seasonally. Most operate the same itinerary pattern from the same port year after year after year, so easier to offer bookings further out. By comparison most HAL Caribbean itineraries see very few bookings outside of 5-6 months prior to sailing, and even then the bulk of their Caribbean capacity sells within 120 days or less to departure. HAL cruisers are more likely to make 1or 2 total payments. There’s just not the imperative for HAL to release Caribbean sailings as far out as their competition. That said I think HAL are waiting to release Caribbean sailings until they get everything else in their portfolio settled. They just released some Sea of Cortez and Hawaii/Tahiti sailings on Zuiderdam for fall 2021 - spring 2022 last week that replace recent cancellations from the Volendam being redeployed. There are still gaps in her schedule that I believe will eventually be filled in with full Panama Canal transits. They are still working on reaccomodation of 2021 Grand South America guests to the 2022 Grand South America sailing (which has yet to be made publicly available). They just made changes to Nieuw Statendam and Rotterdam summer 2021 Europe sailings, and the list goes on. All indicators point to 4 ships being deployed for the full fall 2021 to spring 2022 Caribbean season - Rotterdam VII, Nieuw Statendam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Eurodam. 2 will most likely be used for 7 day Eastern/Western alternating cruises, 1 on 10&11 day Southern Caribbean sailings and 1 for 10/11 day partial Panama Canal Transits - all round trip Ft Lauderdale. There maybe a few 10-14 day cruises on Zaandam/Volendam to fill gaps between other sailings in their schedules, but those are likely one offs. HAL is unlikely to return to Tampa for 2021/22. This is a pretty standard and predictable schedule for HAL, so if you know what you are looking for look at what’s on the schedule for Winter/Spring 2021, know that fall 21 to spring 22 will likely be a cut and paste and just be patient, it will eventually be bookable

  24. Most likely Eurodam. The fall 2021 to spring 2022 Caribbean itineraries (including the partial canal transits) has yet to be published, but I predict Rotterdam VII and Nieuw Amsterdam will do the 7nt E/W Caribbean, Nieuw Statendam will do the 10/11nt Southern Caribbean, and Eurodam on the 10/11nt partial canal sailings using the historic locks.
