  1. Koningsdam is scheduled for dry dock in early December. Does HAL announce ship enhancements in advance of the dry dock?
  2. We have just put a deposit on Koningsdam cabin 6001. Its the forwardmost cabin portside on the Mozart deck. Per the deck plan it seems to have a slightly truncated verandah but also appears to be a bit larger than the usual vista suite. And yet I realize that the deck plans are not drawn precisely to scale. We were in a forward cabin on Osterdam awhile back (maybe 3 cabins back) and were perfectly comfortable, so I have no concerns about being so far forward. Can anyone out there in CruiseCritic land opine on cabin 6001 from firsthand experience?
  3. Considering going solo with friends in another cabin. Not loving the single supplement however. Looking for slight good news. Can I take 2 bottles of wine aboard? Will I get credit for two cruises? Any insight?
  4. I hope someone can share this info What are the dining packages offered on board the Koningsdam? Are there packages for dining once in each restaurant? How much are the packages? I know how much each restaurant is individually.
  5. We'll navigate on Nieuw Statendam begining december 30 and because it has not had its inaugural trip, so far I've researched all the information about the Koningsdam asuming it's identical to Nieuw Statendam. Do you know if that's accurate? Are there in facts differences in the configuration of the ships, public spaces or cabins?
  6. Hey everyone, It will be my first time on Holland America. I've done NCL and Celebrity. I'm thinking it will be an in between, am I wrong? I would like to enjoy everything that is included, any recommendations? Also, are there any activites that are really worth paying extra for? Thank you!
  7. For those who are interested in seeing what the double sized balconies look like in Room 4154 and the one down from it. Pictures are attached.. (it also includes activity booklets for the 11 day cruise as well) I hosted a party for 15 on our balcony no problem... Everyone just had to file through the room. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'; color: #0000ff} https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B195qXGF1HoFQ7
  8. Thanks to CC, I have just discovered the ability to reserve cabanas on HAL. I have sent an inquiry to HAL requesting more details as I was unable to find any information about cabanas on their website. Do you need to reserve Cabana space for the entire cruise? Can you just reserve for a day or two? Can you wait until you are on board to reserve the cabanas? Are they worth the expense? We were on Regal Princess two years ago and found out about renting cabanas by accident. The ship was very crowded and it was almost impossible to secure deck space. We were able to rent for just the sea days and it was wonderful to not worry about where we would be sitting. The experience reminded us of when we first started cruising and were assigned deck chairs by the pool attendant.
  9. We are interested in the Ultimate Dining Package that buys us one dinner at each of the five restaurants on board. If we buy it before our cruise, it is $95.00 per package which is a $25.00 savings. HAL representative just told me that these packages with these savings cannot be had once on board. Can someone please verify that we cannot make this purchase at this price once we are on board? What packages are available once on board? Thank you for your info.
  10. I'm looking for a quiet oceanview cabin (category C, E, or F) on these ships. These cabins are on the main deck, and it seems that most are subject to noise from the showrooms, etc. on the deck above. Are there any "safe" cabins in that category? Thanks.
  11. We will be sailing on Nieuw Statendam and while I am looking forward to trying a new ship there are a few things that give me pause. One is the promenade deck, we will see just how much it may bother us as that is one of our favorite features of HAL ships. The other is the big screen at the Lido pool. I cannot stand the sound of a TV in the back round and the whole focus here seems to be the stupid screen. The chairs seem to all be set up to face it. My questions: is it loud? do they play things during the day? is it always on? Thanks for any info.
  12. Doing the Caribbean in November. Haven't been on Holland for awhile and we were wondering: 1. Can you go to the dining room for lunch on embarkation day? We have sailed Princess a lot in the last few years and having a nice lunch in the dining room versus the chaotic Lido is a nice relaxing way to start the cruise. 2. Read somewhere that Holland is hosting a cocktail party at the time of embarkation. Is that correct? If so how do you find out where and when it is happening. 3. We are 3 star mariner members and wondered if there is a special check-in line for us in Ft Lauderdale? Thanks
  13. Hello, Cruising November 2018, does anyone know the nightly entertainment? First time cruising Holland
  14. hi, Are there places where you can eat outside (lunch or breakfast)? thank you.
  15. What are and where are the available free beverages? Can we order ice tea or lemonade or ???? at dinner/buffet at no cost? And is there anywhere to refill water bottles? Is water safe to drink out of bathroom spigot?
  16. Have any cruisers been in the following cabins : a) Schubert Deck (Deck 7) D7001, D7002, D7003, D7004 b) Sun Deck (Deck 11) D11004, D11002, D11001, D11003 Did you experience any noise from other decks in these cabins and too much motion being in the bow ? Thanks in anticipation.
  17. Is Gelato included in the signature beverage package? Or maybe only the milkshakes since it is a drink?
  18. Would you book this cabin on deck 10 Panorama? I am not familiar with this particular ship and am looking for a quiet space. Is there usually a lot of activity on deck 10?
