  1. I have a "Beverage Credit" promo on my upcoming cruise on the Nieuw Statendam. I do not have many cruises on HAL and not up to speed on their drinks. Can someone give me an idea what is included in a "Beverage Credit". Are their any adult beverages that HAL is especially known for? I remember seeing something about a cider type drink.

  3. I will be sailing the Caribbean in November on the holland america nieuw statendam. I never been on holland this will be my first time. Ok so what kind of drinks are included for free on this ship I heard lots of different things we don't drink alchohol so I don't care about those drinks. Main dining food on other cruise lines main dining food is all you can eat so if you want extra you always get it no extra cost does Holland do the same thing. Do things really close before midnight. We are a group of young adults will we be the only young ones How does Holland compare to royal Caribbean
  4. My last cruise on Nieuw Statendam had one the cabin.
  5. Copying and pasting from the old, closed thread: luvtwotrvl said: Hello Kazu Please add the following April 12, 2020 for a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on Nieuw Statendam Thanks, David
  6. The Nieuw Statendam is such a beautiful, new cruise ship, and I took a ton of photos when I was on board. If you're planning to sail on this ship in the future and want a sneak peak, I've got a photo tour featuring my verandah cabin and all the public spaces on the ship! If you're missing the ship or counting down the days until your next cruise (aren't we all!), maybe this will help fuel your wanderlust for cruising and bring back some great memories! You can see my entire cruise ship photo tour here >> https://justinpluslauren.com/nieuw-statendam-cruise-ship-photo-tour/ Here are a few photos from the Nieuw Statendam! And feel free to ask me any questions!
  7. Hello Kazu Please add the following April 12, 2020 for a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on Nieuw Statendam Thanks, David
  8. Does any know if Open Dining is the same as My Time Dining? Also on The Nieuw Statendam what time is Open Dining? Thank you
  9. This is NOT good news based on what I experienced on Nieuw Statendam during my 2 January cruises. If Ian will be on the ship through the Grand Cruise, that means he will be the CD during my Christmas/New Year's Cruise. (I must assume he knows about which he speaks.) I did not care for the Step One Dance Company's performances on the Nieuw Statendam. The backdrop of the expensive LED screen on the Nieuw Statendam was poorly and uncreatively used. BB KIng's Club? Yes, I do enjoy that, but I also expect more variety in entertainment in the Main Showroom than simply a "dance company" of whatever quality that others perceive.
  10. Has anyone stayed in this cabin? Looks like a larger obstructive balcony with some ocean view.
  11. "The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated!" Blizzardboy will be on the Nieuw Statendam, Dec 08, 2019.
  12. I am glad that Neptune Suites and Pinnacle Suites on all ships except the Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam still get to have breakfast in the Pinnacle Grill.
  13. Any suggestions? Will be on a 7 night cruise. It's possible our 1 year old will be with us although I may be able to get babysitting from other family members on one or two nights when we try specialty dining. I've never sailed with HAL before. I watched some videos online and think I want to try the Asian place (Tamarind) and Pinnacle Grill. Not sure about the Italian place as I see it gets mixed reviews. Will we get dirty looks if we bring our kid with us? Any other complimentary food items specific to HAL that I should make sure I try/don't miss out on? The burgers in the videos look really good lol. Since we will have our 1 year old with us we may have to use the buffet a few nights -- do they serve some of the same dishes as the Main Dining Room? Can we get MDR as room service instead if we need to stay in? On Princess I've always been able to get them to deliver MDR food to my stateroom by calling Room Service and just asking (unadvertised benefit YMMV). Not sure how HAL handles it.
  14. We're looking to book Nieuw Statendam for a Caribbean cruise in March 2020. The best inside cabin we can get is an aft cabin on the 4th (Bethoven) deck (4192). Is there much vibration or engine noise in this area? The cabin is above the dining room, but away from the galley. Have always booked mid-ship so no experience with aft cabins. Any comments would be appreciated.

  16. Enjoyed your comparison. We sail both lines about equally but I prefer HAL overall, as a better value. Always enjoy the full promenades, and I find the ships to deliver a lot of class and comfort vs X’s trendiness. That said, I think the X repeater benefits and suite amenities are superior. Regarding the therapy pool, have you sailed any of the Millenium class X ships with the Thalassotherapy pool? It’s the solarium, adults only pool, not located in the spa. I loved it on Constellation, Regarding the entertainment, I really enjoyed the Music Walk on Nieuw Statendam this year - lots more variety in several venues, making for an evening’s worth of good performances worth staying up for, vs what we’ve seen on past HAL cruises.
  17. It was there on the Nieuw Statendam in August as well. That said, as much as I love the dates and the mints, my perception changed one evening when the woman in front of me grabbed the little fork sitting in the ginger, speared a piece, put them both into her mouth, then put the fork back in the ginger. I called her on it immediately, but she was rude and unapologetic. But I did inform the Maitre D to replace the fork and the ginger.
  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. I am wondering if afternoon tea is still offered on HAL specifically the NS. I know the royal Dutch tea hasn't been offered in quite some time but my last experience on the Koningsdam, it was at 3 each sea day.
  20. I have been sailing with HAL for well over 30 years. Have i tried other lines, yes and enjoyed them, but always come back to HAL where i find I am at home on HAL. With that said, my family of 17 or so and i sailed on HAL’s Koningsdam last March, which is sister ship to the NS. Our age group was from 23 years old all the way up to 80+....everyone had such a great time on this ship that most re-booked for 2021 on the Nieuw Statendam. Free drinks are lemonade, iced tea, juices in the morning, coffee, assorted hot teas, glasses of water With your meals. If i missed any I am sure someone will chime in. Dining room foods, yes you can order all you want at no charge. Entertainment on the K’dam we found to be good, I think better than some other ships I have sailed. They have the Music Walk where you will find BBKing’s, Rolling Rock Room, dueling pianos and some great shows in the Center Stage, oh and movies under the stars. Funny the 20 somethings were first to book the next cruise as they had so much fun, the older folks followed suit. I think you will enjoy the NS, just don’t sweat the small stuff, go with an open mind, you will have a great time. That’s my opinion on the new Pinnacle Class ships.......

  22. Just about to make our final payment on our January cruise on the Nieuw Statendam. I've thought I'd like to purchase some on board credit as well so that I'll have pretty well payed for the entire cruise experience in advance. Wondering what will happen if I have not used it all by the last day of the cruise. What is Holland America's policy in that case?

  24. Anyone else sailing on NS for the New Year Eve cruise -Dec 29? I didn't see a roll call for it. Our first time on HAL, have sailed many other cruise lines. Wondering if they will do something special for New Years Eve?
  25. A friend on Nieuw Statendam reported that sea conditions prevented the port call at Livorno today. Tomorrow they disembark at Civitavecchia and the Captain is trying to arrange an overnight there. So, at this point NSDM may be docked at Civitavecchia
