  1. (12:15 p.m. EDT) -- Holland America Line's latest ship Rotterdam was floated out at the Marghera (Venice) shipyard in Italy today. The 2,668-passenger ship, a sister to Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam and part of HAL's Pinnacle Class of ship, is due to enter service in summer next year. The float-out ceremony marks the end of the building of the ... View the full article
  2. 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?
  3. I agree that a lot of it has to do with what an individual will personally like. Some “younger at heart” seniors may prefer the livelier atmosphere on Carnival or Royal and would never consider an “old people” cruise line. Along the same lines. we are a family with young children (8 and 10 years old). As much as we enjoyed sailing on the Allure, and as wowed as we were, we actually preferred the more sedate and traditional experience that we encountered on our last cruise (HAL’s Nieuw Statendam). Even though Holland America is a cruise line that caters heavily to a more senior clientele, and the activities for kids and younger adults were considerably more limited, all of us had an absolutely memorable cruise. Still, I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to sail on an Oasis class ship again. I thought that Allure was fantastic.

  7. Based on your opening paragraph I am very confident you would much more enjoy the Nieuw Statendam. Newer and bigger, but not huge.
  8. We've been on the Nieuw Statendam once, and Westerdam's sister ship Zuiderdam twice. We liked both ships very much and would book either in a heartbeat! Enjoy your cruise!
  9. 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.
  10. Can someone tell me how much the lifeboats below block the view from this cabin? Are we better off with 5177 or 6169. thanks!

  15. Good morning all! I'm sure we're all wishing we could be world tourists and cruising today -- hoping for much better next year! Meanwhile I'm planning our next road trip for next spring. Yellowstone (of course) and adding in Mount Rushmore and Deadwood this time. We'd hoped to get back to Rocky Mountain National Park and be able to drive the Trail Ridge Road, but after the arctic blast they had our trip a few weeks ago, and researching I learned that it's very touch and go whether it's open due to snow, wildfires, avalanches, etc. etc. So, since it's a long drive, sadly we're giving up on that idea. LOL at the hummingbird quote, and I think the drink of the day sounds yummy. One would probably do it for me though 😉 Today is our 51st anniversary. A year ago we were on the beautiful Nieuw Statendam starting on a 65-day Med marathon. Oh the memories 🙂 I think we'll get take-out tonight, maybe Red Lobster... Stay safe everyone and wear your masks 🙂 🙂
  16. Here is a photo cabin tour of Obstructed Verandah stateroom #4079 on the Nieuw Statendam (very similar to Koningsdam) https://travelingwiththejones.com/2019/04/20/a-look-inside-obstructed-verandah-stateroom-4079-on-holland-americas-nieuw-statendam/ For comparison this is a photo tour of Category “V” — Verandah Stateroom #5072 — Nieuw Statendam with no obstruction for the verandah. If the price is close to an oceanview, we like these Obstructed Verandahs. The only thing we missed compared to a regular verandah is the views while sitting down. If you decide to get an oceanview on the Koningsdam or Nieuw Statendam, we really liked the extra space in stateroom 11001 on deck 11 above the bridge http://travelingwiththejones.com/2016/07/25/a-look-inside-stateroom-11001-on-holland-americas-koningsdam-cruise-ship/ We appreciate checking out other people photos of their cruise cabins, so we started these cabin photo tours -- http://travelingwiththejones.com/2020/08/06/18-cruise-ship-cabin-tours/
  17. I know that there have been a lot of changes to the Northern European Cruises for Summer 2021 but at present does anyone know how (or who) can remove the roll calls for cancelled cruises ? I guess we could start a new Roll Call for our booking on Nieuw Statendam 27 June 2021 - Voyage of the Midnight Sun.
  18. Good afternoon all! Great photos today!! Rich we'll raise a glass to you tonight in honor of Singles Day and to seeing you again in April. Fingers crossed for that cruise. I got out to Flower World (my version of Disney World) and bought my spring bulbs. Now to wait for the rain to end so I can plant them 😉 Here's a photo from our cruise last Sept. on the Nieuw Statendam. BEST cabin stewards ever, I cried when we said goodbye and left to board the Koningsdam. They were always doing special things for us. We got 3 (!!!) anniversary cakes that cruise so gave them one of them -- I told them they would burn off those calories much faster than we could. 😄
  19. Has to be either KDAM or NIeuw Statendam
  20. today is National Cheeseburger Day, National POW / MIA Recognition Day, and Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown "Gee, Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore."

  21. Does anyone have any idea as to what is in the blank space on Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam between the midship stairs and the Lincoln Center Stage/BB Kings Blues Club? I am considering cabin 1128 on deck 1 right below and wondering if it is noisy from whatever is above? I cannot find any reviews of this room or it's direct neighbor 1124.

  23. As always I refer to this as my daily dose of positivity. Love all the amazing photos and menu suggestions. Air is clear today. Hope the rain in the NW helps with your fires. Yesterday was especially bad with smoke from the Western fires. Colorado still has two major fires going, but they are East of us, so we don’t have their smoke. I got an email from HAL today that has me thinking about next year—can an older person “think” about booking? Nieuw Statendam or Rotterdam? Decisions, decisions. Haven’t picked up the phone yet!
  24. But why do you all thinking these ships are gonna be sold? I know, Volendam came to the Netherlands last week and is now anchored up to our coast, Toegether with Nieuw Statendam, and, when she returns from dry dock, Zaandam. Well I wondered why Volendam came to The Netherlands, I hope that I will get an answer to that question soon. But for now, it is not on my radar that these 2 ships are gonna be sold.
  25. Hello, I have been looking at a cruse on the Nieuw Statendam for next spring and I am a bit puzzled. What is the difference between a veranda cabin and a vista suite. I see that the veranda has the living area next to the patio and the VS has the bed next to it. Really would like to know what is different before I book. Also if anyone has stayed in a VS what are your thoughts. Thanks
