  1. Background: Nearly 30 years cruising. Diamond on Royal Caribbean, variety of other colors and jewelry across NCL, Carnival, MSC. Couple near 40, son will be a bit under age 5 at proposed time of sailing. Feel service is declining on Royal Caribbean. Don't care for some of the rowdiness have found lately on NCL and Carnival. Looking for decent kids club and activities; nightly entertainment until 10-11pm is plenty for us really. Good included in fare food; whether this be lido, pool deck, or MDR we expect good quality. Want to try a somewhat quieter and less crowded ship than the mega ships we have been going on. Like the Key West/San Juan/Grand Turk itinerary which can do on either ship it looks like. Which ship would you recommend, and why, for a young active family but not looking for a sports bar party like Carnival or NCL. Expecting something distinctly cut above Royal Caribbean, not necessarily fancy. Does NA have a full walking track around ship? That is something to consider for us also.
  2. Does anyone happen to have copies of recent "dailies"--the news sheets or daily guides for Koningsdam to the S. Caribbean? It would be so helpful to see the list of things to do for daily planning, ie. when to schedule massages, do wine tastings/culinary class, et cetera! Thanks for any help here! C/B
  3. I have another Q, or 2, regarding the staterooms on the leading edge of Koningsdam. We booked one of those Oceanview cabins at extreme front on the Sun Deck (D1102)--talked to one of their reservation staff while we were on the road, so didn't realize until later that this room is underneath the Observation Deck, below Crows' Nest. To the best of my photo and and ship's deck plan interpretation, this room is situated under the swivel chairs and loungers in the Crow's Nest. I know that there are some nights when there are late-night types of activities, including DJs, and so on. My question concerns NOISE LEVELS. Have you had one of these cabins, or talked with someone who has? I'm retired military, so I'm capable of sleeping in places and situations where more sensitive folk would throw up their hands and run for a sleeping pill to accompany their ear plugs and white noise machines. I have been retired for a while now and no longer have all the abilities I've had at other times in my life. But--particularly if you have first-hand experience with these rooms, I'd love to know what your experience was.
  4. I have seen lots of posts about the Freestyle Coke machines on the Koningsdam but I am a bit confused about getting cola drinks in the main dining room. Do you have to carry your chipped cup to the dining room to have a cola if you have purchased the Unlimited Coca Cola package? That seems a bit awkward! Thanks!
  5. Can anyone, who has recently been on the Koningsdam, tell me the current smoking policy in the casino. Ship Services says smoking is limited to a small area of slots. No smoking at the tables and most of the slot area.
  6. We have previously sailed on HAL 3 times, but that was several years ago and on some of their "smaller" ships. Since then, we have sailed only on RCCL and Celebrity, which we have enjoyed, especially the Diamond Lounge cocktail hours, as we have access to those. We are now considering an 11 night cruise on the Koningsdam for next spring, as we like the itinerary. We have tried to do research on the ship, but it seems to offer some conflicting opinions. So, if some of you that have been on it could please answer some questions, it would be most appreciated. 1. I have heard that there are very few public areas that offer views of the ocean. Is this true, as we enjoy a view.? (We will have a balcony, but do not want to spend the whole cruise on it). 2. There is a daily "happy hour" offered with reduced drinks. Is this true and if so, what time is it offered? 3. The balconies on the fore and aft of deck 4 are larger, but have steel railings rather than plexi-glass. Is this true? 4. For "My Time Dining", or whatever it is called, there are very few tables for 2 available. Is this true? 5. There is very little shaded area available near to the pools. And HAL offers more smoking areas than other cruise lines. Is this true? This may seem somewhat "picky" but we enjoy certain things while on a cruise and we are just trying to see what we might get to experience. Any advice/information on these topics is welcome. Thank you.
  7. We are considering a transatlantic of the Koningsdam. Can someone recommend OV cabins they liked.
  8. Hi, Can you buy a bucket of beer in teh ocean bar or the crown nest or only at the poolbar? Is it possible to buy them during happy hour? I found a price for a bucket of Corona 5 for 22$. Is this still the price? And the second bucket is then 2$ or 5x 2$. tnx :):)
  9. Koningsdam TV So currently in a Koningsdam Neptune suite with a 50” TV. It does have USB and HDMI connections on the right side of the TV, inset about 6” from the edge, centered from the top to bottom. AND I CAN AND DID CONNECT to them! It is a Samsung TV. In my case I connected an extension cable (HDMI OR USB) to the port. I did bring a universal remote, ran the auto program and bingo, had the “input” to TV options available to me. Connected my laptop—of course will work with any HDMI connected device, changed to HDMI and my computer screen was on the TV.
