  1. today is Mint Julep Day and Water a Flower Day Chef, n.: Any cook who swears in French. Meal suggestion for today - Porcupine Meatballs At Sea Indian Ocean Eurodam destination Manila eta Nieuw Amsterdam destination Jakarta eta 6/1 Noordam destination Manila eta 5/31 Rotterdam destination Jakarta eta 6/5 Veendam destination Reunion eta 6/5 Volendam destination Jakarta eta 6/1 Westerdam destination Jakarta eta 6/1 Zuiderdam destination Reunion eta 6/5 At Sea Pacific Koningsdam destination Pichilingue MX eta 5/29 La Paz Anchorage Oosterdam Lubuan Maasdam destination Lubuan eta 5/29 Manila Anchorage Amsterdam Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam
  2. 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.
  3. We've only been on one TA (Westbound Nieuw Statendam Fall 2019)......but we think that's the preferred direction for us....Why? get the flight (& jet lag) over first while you are pumped for the trip Enjoy fall in Europe (we think we witnessed less crowds & we had good, comfortable weather at that time of year) Wear yourself out in Europe with a go-go-go land itinerary (& cruise ports) knowing rest time is coming Bring onboard all your dirty clothes and get HAL to clean them while on TA! Recoup, relax and organize your pics during the blissful 7 days at sea (best days ever) Enjoy the extra hour practically every day of the 7 days....arrive home rested We flew to Florence and based there for 5 days of non-stop sightseeing (Florence, wine, Venice, wine, Tuscany, wine, Pisa, wine) and then left out of Rome/Cititivichia (however you spell it) w/3 Spanish ports, wine, Azores and wine. We took only one carry on each. Best trip ever. We've got our eye on the Ryndam's TA in the Fall of 2021 and thinking of a similar plan (5 days in Amsterdam and then TA home). The price is way too high right now but watching. We also think we need the newer ships for the 7 days crossing the pond. No matter what direction you choose, enjoy the journey....and enjoy the wine along the way!

  5. 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
  6. Hi Tony! We have booked Norway and The Baltic, leaving Amsterdam on June 6th. Nieuw Statendam.

  8. For those wanting a summary of the ships involved without reading the entire blog: ASIA: Maasdam, Noordam and Westerdam are en route to the Philippines. Westerdam will continue onto Indonesia. Eurodam and Amsterdam are in the Manila Bay area in the Philippines. Nieuw Amsterdam, Volendam, Rotterdam, Zuiderdam and Veendam are transiting to Asia via ports in southern Africa. AMERICAS AND THE CARIBBEAN: Koningsdam is at anchor at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where efforts are underway to secure transportation home for a number of teammates. Oosterdam is at anchor at La Paz, Mexico, in minimum operating manning and will move closer to Panama in the coming days. EUROPE: Zaandam and Nieuw Statendam have brought several crew home to Europe and are at anchor in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, under minimum operating manning.

  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.

  14. I have experienced an indoor lounge muster on Nieuw Statendam, Royal Princess, and MSC Meraviglia. All 3 were inadequate in comparison to an actual at your lifeboat station as has been done on some HAL ships. Royal Princess: my lounge area was small enough that it was easier to pay attention. A World Stage Mustering Station on Nieuw Statendam was marginally better than what I experienced at the Mustering Station in the Theater of MSC Meraviglia. Particularly on Meraviglia, if there was smoke present, low/little lighting, and relatively few crew members to "herd this crew of cats" to the lifeboats, I would not have known where to go on my own. As a newbie on such a ship, God forbid that I got lost from the crowd being herded to a lifeboat embarkation station.
  15. It's good as it is now! If you want more fun oan board got to Other cruise company's! We liked the entertainment on board the Nieuw Statendam. We would jump overboard if we would be in a cruise like you see in some documentarys where there is loud noise everywhere on the ship! But everyone has his own taste!

  18. 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) With apologies to those who normally post the sailin/sailaway schedules! Finally - Fijne Koningsdag! Happy King's Day!

  20. Cruisers are posting that they are booking cruises for this year's Caribbean season and onwards so here is an update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. The charters and group sailings organisations have been slowly updating their plans, so the information listed here may change over the coming months. Zaandam and Amsterdam have missed their dry docks which were scheduled to happen in April and May 2020 and as yet no updated scheduled dates are available. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.
