  1. Has anyone heard if the Nieuw Statendam staying in Europe? I seen it only has 1 cruise in April before returning to Northern Europe for the summer.
  2. We are booked on the Nieuw Statendam for a very port intensive Mediterranean cruise next fall where we plan to be off the ship from early morning to right before departure time almost every day in port, but we may want to visit the Thermal Suite 1 or 2 times (most likely on sea days) rather than buying a full cruise pass. Does anyone have any idea of the price for a single day pass? Is it any different for port days vs sea days? Are they hard to come by or pretty easy to get? Thanks in advance for any information! PS - Please leave any discussion about whether or not
  3. We are considering an aft-wrap Neptune on the Nieuw Statendam (I think the Koningsdam is the same) and am wondering which deck to select from? I and familiar with the aft-wraps on the VIsta class ships, but not on this new class. Which cabins are are largest, inside and balcony, and any other pros/cons.
  4. We are slated to cruise on February 7, 2021, on the Nieuw Statendam (fingers crossed) and have some questions about this ship: 1) Does it have Pickleball? 2) I read somewhere that they have outdoor movies -- where do they show these movies? 3) How many gala nights are usually held on a 10 day cruise? I'm sure I'll think of more questions as time goes by. LOL I check the HAL site every day to see if they have changed their target date for resuming cruises...so far, so good for February 7... Thanks!
  5. Has anyone stayed in the Vista suites on the 8th deck? Especially ones that have an extra upper bed. Thank you.
  6. Are they going to post the Nieuw Statendam summer 2021 cruises schedule.. Or is this next ship to be sold.
  7. I just booked a Neptune guarantee on the Nieuw Statendam (sister ship to Koningsdam) and was wondering about the 4 Neptune cabins that are far forward on decks 10 and 11. Has anyone stayed in these and if so, how did you like them?
  8. Is the Pinnacle suite shower on the Nieuw Statendam the real small shower like in the pinnacle on the Volendam? The drawing shows it bigger but the only video i can find shows it being one of those round things that are very small.
  9. Can someone tell me how much the lifeboats below block the view from this cabin? Are we better off with 5177 or 6169. thanks!
  10. I normally wouldn't book a cabin anywhere near the theater, but this was a casino deal, and I had very little choice. Any insight is greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.
  11. Hi everyone! I am contemplating booking an aft facing veranda for an Eastern Caribbean in April. We sailed in one on the Eurodam to the Mexican Riviera in December of 2018. We loved everything about it with one exception. There was a strange vibration that wasn't constant. It would come and go. Is this typical of aft facing verandas, or was there maybe an issue with the ship? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! My other options are one of the angled balconies on either deck 4 (partially obstructed) or deck 8. Thanks in advance!! Chris
  12. We have looked and looked for a GOOD photo of the FAMILY Cabana on the Nieuw Statendam. We have heard all the negatives about this cabana, but have seen no actual photos of it, just side views and partial views where you can make nothing out. If anyone has a good clear photo, we would appreciate it if you would post it here.
  13. I had noticed that Nieuw Statendam was 'Scheduled' for arrival into Port Everglades for 7.00 am (ET) on Monday 27th April and it is now 'Confirmed'! She will dock at pier 26 with orientation listed as 'Starboard Must' . (that is a bit unusual?). She is scheduled to sail at 5.00pm ET. Also 'Scheduled' for today is Caribbean Princess with an arrival time of 6.00pm and departure on Tuesday 28th April at 5pm Camera links are: https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/ (both Fort Lauderdale web cams are online again)
  14. My wife and I recently disembarked from the above cruise. In short – and to save you the trouble of reading what follows, we will state that the cruise was absolutely wonderful, and we would have to search for any negative points. The Ship. We had reservations about cruising on a ship as large as Nieuw Statendam, having in the past experienced Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam, and Zuiderdam. Quite frankly, those concerns were completely unjustified. We simply loved this ship – its décor, cleanliness, “newness,” the extra venues, and the fact that at no time did it seem crowded. Rather
  15. Another, now infrequent, dam ship appearance in Ft. Lauderdale/Port Everglades during these uncertain times! HAL's still newest ship, Nieuw Statendam will be making her presence known on Sunday, March 29, 2020 in order to take on fuel, water and some stores, as well as a small bit of crew turnover. She is due in at 0700 hrs local and going to berth 19. Prelim departure is scheduled for 5:00 PM Two others members of the Holland America Group are scheduled to make an appearance; Sky Princess arriving at 0600 hrs. local and assigned berth 26, and her stablemate Regal Princess, arrivin
  16. Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam was notified at 9:30 a.m. local time in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, that the Florida Governor’s office had supported an order requested by Broward County officials to hold disembarkation of guests from the ship in order to do a COVID-19 test on a guest who sadly passed away during this cruise. The U.S. Coast Guard, in conjunction with the U.S. CDC, had already cleared the ship for disembarkation after reviewing the medical specifics of this case. Approximately 65% of guests have already disembarked based on this clearance and are on their way home. R
  17. Another early post. And speaking of early, the ships are scheduled to leave earlier than usual. Something to do with DST maybe???? Nieuw Statendam will be at pier 26 (port to) from 0430-1600.

  18. We are just off a one week cruise (3/9) on the Nieuw Statendam. I wanted to write a little bit about sanitation onboard in light of the ongoing Corona Virus situation. I was disappointed and I think Holland America needs to step up its game if it is going to stay in business. THE GOOD: - Hand santizing stations are abundant and filled; - Bathrooms are equipped to allow exit without touching door handles after hand washing (paper towel and garbage adjacent to entrance) - Spray sanitizer encouraged by staff for passengers returning to boat and at first three nights of

  20. My wife and I have not cruised on any of the HAL ships. We are about ready to book a holiday trip for this year. My question is...all things being equal with the exception of cabin selection, should we do an inside cabin on the Nieuw Statendam or a balcony on the Nieuw Amsterdam? The cost is roughly the same for the inside and balcony. The Nieuw Staendam is a relatively new ship, and the the Nieuw Amsterdam was recently refurbished in 2018. My thinking is since there is limited daylight hours to enjoy the balcony, perhaps the inside cabin on the newer ship

  23. Can anyone tell me if the Thermal Spa on the Nieuw Statendam has a steam room? The write up says it has steam but did not say steam room. I did try looking it up before asking. I just haven’t had any luck finding an answer.

  25. I was looking through old posts for info on the NS and saw a discussion about there not being tubs in any rooms other than specific Neptune Suites. Can anyone confirm this information? We currently have a spa OV room booked, but thought about upgrading to a Signature Suite with the tub being a perk. Any room layouts I find online show that the Signatures have tubs too.
