  4. Has anyone recently attended the Aficionado Dinner on the Nieuw Statendam? We sail in less than two weeks and the dinner just came to my attention. I could not find detail on the HAL site. Would love to hear your experiences. Thank you. BaltimoreCruise

  7. We will be on the February 23, 2020 sailing and looking forward to our first cruise with Holland America! I have a silly question- does this ship have self serve soft ice cream stations? We have watched a few videos and I didn’t see any. Seems silly but that is something I look forward to. Thank you in advance for your help!

  9. I have searched high and low on the forums (I know it’s annoying to the regulars to answer questions over and over) and the HAL website. Cannot find the answer to this: Do Vista Suites on Nieuw Statendam receive early boarding/disembarkation privileges? I’ve read all about how little you gain from a Vista Suite, in comparison with other, higher ranking suites, but cannot find confirmation of what my travel agent told me about receiving those privileges. Thanks in advance!
  10. I have tried to locate more information on the cabanas by the pool on the Nieuw Statendam. Is the charge of the cabana per person in the cabin or just per cabin? We are in an inside cabin, so I thought this would be a nice way to enjoy being by the pool. Would it be worth it to by the cabana for the week or just a day or two? How do you book the cabanas before the cruise starts? Thanks for any help!

  12. Hi all I did try hard to find the answer to this easy question. Which deck is set standard seating dining on deck 2 or 3?. Also is late seating still 8pm ?. Any thoughts on table choices for 2 - table 230,224 look good .
  13. Booked a bump out room and would like any information on these. The room will be bigger 230sq. Ft. Anyone have a picture? I can’t find any. Thanks
  14. I wanted to post a trip report on our recent HAL Nieuw Statendam sailing. The TL;DR version was that we enjoyed the cruise and purchased future cruise credits. As a bit of background, DW and I are both mid-30s and experienced cruisers with this being our 4th New Year's holiday sailing (RCL 12/08, PCL 12/17, HAL 12/18). I wouldn't describe us as food or entertainment "connoisseurs", but we've been to various broadway shows, eaten at a few fancy restaurant, and lived in the "big city" for a while. Embarkation went smoothly. I think we got to the port about 9:45 AM and
  15. A busy Sunday in Port Everglades with seven cruise ships in port. Nieuw Statendam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She will be doing a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise.

  16. Just booked a bump out room on deck 7. Anyone have information on those rooms? Pictures? I can’t find any, but it is supposed to be a bigger room and balcony.
  17. *** NOTE*** I am posting this on Friday night and by Sunday some of the times and even piers may change. It is another full house in Port Everglades with eight cruise ships. Nieuw Statendam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She will be heading out on a 7-day Tropical Caribbean cruise.

  18. We leave on Jan 12 on the Nieuw Statendam. We had a VE Verandah guarantee and were given a VQ Spa Verandah 10021. This appears to be an upgrade although I'm not sure these cabins are that much better. We normally prefer cabins toward the back of the ship. Curious for those that have had one of these cabins. Did you like it? What did you like about it? Was it really windy on the verandah while at sea? Is the spa showerhead any better than the regular ones? We have been on the Koningsdam and loved the shower in a regular Verandah cabin. Is there a tub or an enclosed glass shower?
  19. Has anyone stayed in this cabin? Booked it on my next cruise to the Baltic in May and wondering if the noise will bother us?
  20. Sunday brings our last HAL sail-away of 2019. Nieuw Statendam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She is doing a 7-day Eastern Caribbean Holiday cruise.

  21. What did HAL learn from the Koningsdam that they have changed on the Nieuw Statendam?
  22. The musical program attracted me to HAL but I have seen several reviews of how loud it is... I stayed on a lower deck on our last cruise and liked it (quiet, didn’t get motion sickness/very stable, and disembarkation on shore days was super easy as it was one level down) but the configuration of NS is very different. I was at first excited to see that the Plaza Level and entertainment options (and MDR) are just one level up but now I am afraid of the noise. Would love opinions/thoughts from those who have cruised on NS, esp those who stayed on Main Deck. It is the only remaining question I hav
  23. Everyone is "getting out of Dodge" for the holidays - there are eight ships in port! For those of you who are up very early, there will be non-stop sail-ins for about two hours. Koningsdam will be at pier 21 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She is doing an 11-day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer Holiday cruise. Philipsburg, St. Maarten (25 Dec 0800-1700); Fort de France, Martinique (26 Dec 0800-1700); Bridgetown, Barbados (27 Dec 0800-1700); St Vincent, St Vincent and the Grenadines (28 Dec 0800-1700); Roseau, Dominica (29 Dec 0800-1600); St Thomas, US Virgin Isl
  24. All, we had a fantastic Thanksgiving cruise on the Nieuw Statendam, and I meant to write a nice little trip report as soon as we got home, but sickness, school, and parenting a five year old got in the way— please excuse my tardiness and please take this little review at its value! Overall we had a fabulous trip! I’ve attempted a photo upload— just a few pictures; I hope it works as planned. We flew to FLL a day early, and spent the night in Dania Beach at the Hilton Home2Suites. We like Home2 as a nice alternative to other Hilton properties— room layout is good for family travel, la
  25. Would love some information about how you found Club HAL on the Nieuw Statendam. Our grandkids loved it on the New Amsterdam, but it looks like it's a lot smaller on the NS. Kids will be 8, 14, 16 at the time of sailing. I know the older ones can do what they want, but the younger one will need some HAL activity perhaps.
