  1. Any suggestions? Will be on a 7 night cruise. It's possible our 1 year old will be with us although I may be able to get babysitting from other family members on one or two nights when we try specialty dining. I've never sailed with HAL before. I watched some videos online and think I want to try the Asian place (Tamarind) and Pinnacle Grill. Not sure about the Italian place as I see it gets mixed reviews. Will we get dirty looks if we bring our kid with us? Any other complimentary food items specific to HAL that I should make sure I try/don't miss out on? The burgers in the videos look really good lol. Since we will have our 1 year old with us we may have to use the buffet a few nights -- do they serve some of the same dishes as the Main Dining Room? Can we get MDR as room service instead if we need to stay in? On Princess I've always been able to get them to deliver MDR food to my stateroom by calling Room Service and just asking (unadvertised benefit YMMV). Not sure how HAL handles it.
  2. Just checking about drinking water available on the NA. Is there a place on board that has water for filling water bottles other than the tap in the nearest sink?
  3. Hi, how is sailing on HAL solo? Male 64 yrs. Going on Nieuw Statendam.
  4. My partner Charles and I look forward to another HAL TA crossing. Took the Koningsdam last year and had a wonderful cruise. Great food and service all around. Love the Tamarind Specialty Dining restaurant. This year spending 3 days in Rome pre-embarkation.
  5. We attended the Orange party on the Nieuw Statendam. It was packed and super fun. Lots of Dutch goodies. I agree the orange party shirt sold on the ship is hideous so I would suggest bringing your own, or a tie or some beads...it’s just a fun excuse to celebrate the heritage of the cruise line and The Netherlands.

  7. I am very happy to hear it's good tap water on the Nieuw Amsterdam, I would much prefer free water, than purchasing bottled water (considering the price) Some cruise lines bottled water package is much cheaper than HA. Oh well.
  8. The Nieuw Statendam is such a beautiful, new cruise ship, and I took a ton of photos when I was on board. If you're planning to sail on this ship in the future and want a sneak peak, I've got a photo tour featuring my verandah cabin and all the public spaces on the ship! If you're missing the ship or counting down the days until your next cruise (aren't we all!), maybe this will help fuel your wanderlust for cruising and bring back some great memories! You can see my entire cruise ship photo tour here >> https://justinpluslauren.com/nieuw-statendam-cruise-ship-photo-tour/ Here are a few photos from the Nieuw Statendam! And feel free to ask me any questions!

    Nieuw Statendam

    Greetings from a retired middle/high school teacher. I did a solo cruise this past summer on the Rotterdam for 20 days. I did attend the first solo gathering on the first night and met a woman that I ended up doing a lot of activities with during the cruise. I had Anytime Dining and had almost no problems with that. One night I had been seated with The Complainers (Hi, my name is So and So and I'll be cruising a different line from now on). The next night they started to seat me with them again and I hung back, got the host's attention and said no. He came up with a different seating assignment for me and I apologized on the way over to the new table, but explained that I just couldn't listen to them again. He was cool with it. Other than them, I was seated with very welcoming people. No one made an issue of my status as a solo traveler - I don't think they cared one way or another. I did meet people through the roll call and made arrangements for specialty dining with them. I also went to the dining room often for breakfast. There was a regular group there that I often ate with and it became a regular thing. So, I had fixed breakfast and anytime dining. rkacruiser has given some great advice about striking up conversations in lounges and bars. It does work! Also, I did find that the staff went out of their way to make sure all was well with me. As for the OP, I did my first solo cruise on the Koningsdam and the Nieuw Statendam is almost identical. It will have additional choices for dining and the Grand Dutch Cafe is not to be missed! The Main Stage is spectacular, especially if they utilize it to its potential. Have a great cruise!
  10. The forward lower section of the third Pinnacle-class ship, Ryndam IV (Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam preceded her; how 'bout getting rid of that "Nieuw" and just calling her Statendam VI, HAL?) was launched at Palermo, Sicily on 03 Oct 2019, after officially being blessed. The plan is for this section to be towed around the "boot" of Italy and up the Adriatic to Fincantieri's Marghera yard (near Venice) for an early November arrival, where it will eventually be added to other sections like a jigsaw puzzle. Next up is the keel laying. Ryndam IV is scheduled to join the fleet in May 2021
  11. Enjoy. Did the Koningsdam inaugural crossing in 2016 (and again 2017), the Nieuw Statendam première crossing and Caribbean loop last year and are back again for this crossing. See you onboard. Scott and Scott (um yeah it's that)
  12. The tradition with HAL, for several recently retired captains, has been a limo ride from the dock to the airport, after a series of blows on the ship's whistle, and an emotional farewell to the captain from the assembled crew. There usually is some sort of gift included Unlike the airlines, no water cannon salutes from fire or tugboats. Some ship captains are in the habit, when possible, to recruit and hold on to certain staff, especially on ships like the Amsterdam and her annual grand world voyage. Having said that, unlike a last flight of an airline captain, the last voyage of a ship's captain usually comes at the completion of a three-month contract so, picking a crew for just that last voyage is not always possible since they (the other officers) are all dealing with their own contracts and vacation time contr
  13. Totally agree. Loved Amsterdam and had a great and interesting five days there. Our cruise towards Budapest, at least for us, was full of the history, castles, lovely small towns, wonderful scenery, food and wine that we like. Thankfully we had no river water issues. Fell in love with both Budapest and Prague and tacked on four days in each. We came home very tired but very happy with our choices. Paris however is a whole other animal. My favourite city but gosh it takes a lot of time to see the sites, visit the galleries, enjoy the food etc etc etc. I've been three times and still have not really scratched the surface. So much to see dear travellers, so much to see. 🙂
  14. Whenever I tell people I've taken a river cruise, they immediately think I sailed on Viking. I assume this is due to all of Viking's advertising and sponsorship of Downton Abbey. Yesterday I was watching something on the Smithsonian network and saw a Uniworld ad, and this morning I was watching a program on Sundance and saw the same ad. Anyone else observe this or was I just not paying attention before? Uniworld keeps extending the deadline for a discount on their 2020 cruises. Prices are still too high for me. I'm looking at other lines and other options, including a land tour of Amsterdam and the Netherlands arranged by me.
  15. “Service Dogs” on board ships....should they be allowed? I don’t often make comments on here, but I have been following John and Dianne’s Lucky Number 7 thread from the Amsterdam World Cruise with discussions about so called “Service Dogs” that are currently on board the World Cruise and decided to start a separate thread to see if other people also have an objection to these animals on board. Obviously they are approved by someone in an office who has no idea that they are not properly trained. I do love dogs.....love our two “Granddogs” ....but not on ships! I have no objection to a properly trained Service Dog that is on a harness, but have no time for these people who seem to be able to bring on their pets by calling them Comfort Dogs. The following is a quote from John and Dianne’s latest thread.... This morning in the gym, there wasn’t just exercising going on. A group of people, including the wife of one of the ship’s top officers, had an angry discussion going on about the dogs on board. I think I may have mentioned them before. A couple boarded the ship somewhere in Europe and, with HAL’s permission, brought aboard two “comfort dogs.” Apparently the husband had had heart surgery recently and felt he needed the comfort of his two dogs. Unfortunately, these are NOT service dogs, which I realized when one “escaped” their cabin one morning and ran helter-skelter down the hallway. Apparently the situation has become worse rather than better. During one show in the Queen’s Lounge, one of the dogs began to bark and then to howl, continuing until removed from the room. Also, one pooped in the elevator and another peed on the carpet somewhere on the ship. In addition, the couple brought their dogs to The Pinnacle for dinner and a conflict broke out with other diners which required that security be called. We don't know the outcome of that situation. Of course the person who approved this doesn’t have to deal with the consequences, but both passengers and especially crew do, and officers and crew at the very highest levels are really fed up with the whole thing. I realize that some people really do need their (well-trained) service dogs wherever they go, but noisy, badly-trained ankle biter dogs are certainly not a good idea. I know that it’s possible to find “service dog” certificates online, but I think the situation should require a letter from a vet certifying that the dog is actually a trained service dog as well as a letter from a physician explaining why the person needs such a dog. That would not violate the ADA, but it would keep situations like this from arising. Enough said. I have experienced first hand one of these dogs last year on the Prinsendam in Europe and Holy Land and decided to now share some of the stories from that cruise. A lady from New York had a “Service dog “. ...an Australian Sheepdog that is not bred to be a Service dog, but to round up and chase sheep!! This dog was totally out of control. It was apparently to protect her Personal Space! .....but invaded the space of many other passengers and crew! The first we were aware of it, my husband said there was a strange noise that sounded like a dog barking when he was on the balcony. This dog was seen by us and other passengers and crew..... ......bounding up the stairs on the ship on a very long lead ......off the lead in the Crows Nest, licking the tables and eating any dropped nuts off the floor and tables ......Off the lead on the back pool deck looking to be patted and jumping up on people ......pooping on the deck....instead of in his tray .......according to the Dining Room Manager it jumped up on waiters, and the lady was ordering the best steak off the menu and feeding it under the table....the Dining Manager said he objected to the dog being given the HAL dining china to eat off and he found it a plastic dish. There were many confrontations apparently in the dining room and the lady was moved from several tables when people objected! .......On an excursion the dog was in the front seat, with paws up on the partition over the driver and drooling on to the driver. ...... other passengers were asked by the lady if they would hold the lead while she went into some of the churches etc in Israel where dogs were not allowed. ......the lady was seen ashore on a few occasions without the dog in ports where it was not allowed (she was travelling with a friend so assumed the friend looked after it) ...the worst for me was while on an excursion, whilst climbing some stairs, this lady and her “Service Dog” raced passed me ......the dog went one side of me and the lady the other the dogs lead caugh my legs and I fell heavily on a landing on the stairs. This dog was NOT a service dog and should never have been allowed! I made this quite clear in our cruise evaluation also. Apart from the above, it is not fair to the dog to be confined like this I hope I never encounter these so called Service Dogs on a ship again.
  16. We are 125 days until sailing and are unable to book any specialty dining. My past experience has been that one can book within 6 to 9 months prior to sailing. The only exception to that was when Le Cirque was available and it was usually delayed for early in the year. We will be sailing on the Nieuw Statendam in Feb/20. Any ideas what is going on? I only want to book the PG and Tamarind for two specific nights.
  17. If it was my first river cruise and my first visit to the area, I would choose Amsterdam to Budapest. You can still add Prague at the end of your cruise to Budapest - Prague is absolutely amazing! Would you arrive AMS prior to your cruise - lots to see in AMS. Wondering why Paris? We love Paris but it seems that you may be adding too much - sometimes a little less is more. I would save Paris for another visit where I could spend 4 days to a week - so much to see and do in Paris - large city. So, if it were me, I would arrive AMS early, spend a few days in AMS, cruise to Budapest and spend an extra few days in Budapest & then several days in Prague.
  18. My wife Kathy and I are on the Viking Grand European tour, Budapest to Amsterdam from May 10 - 24 2020. We are really interested in the optional excursions where you ride a bicycle. I haven't found any reviews for these tours. If you have taken any bicycle tours on this trip, I would love to hear your review. Thank you!

  19. I would choose something other than Amsterdam to Budapest for 2 reasons: (1) that itinerary goes through the notorious low-water stretch and so maximizes the chances of disruptions, and (2) some people discover that river cruising just isn’t for them so a 2-week cruise leaves a lot of unhappy days ahead. If your frame of reference is ocean cruises, take a look at AmaMagna. It’s twice as wide as any other river cruise ship, so there’s more room for everything and more ‘things.’ It also stays in the deep water part of the Danube.
  20. Here is the latest update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. Please consider this a 'work in progress' which will evolve from month to month. There is a doubt about the planned Dry Dock for Noordam, 23 November 2020 to 6 December 2020 as she is currently in dry dock in Esquimalt, B.C. until Sunday 13 October. She has no cruises currently listed for the period 23 November to 6 December 2020. The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  21. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 11th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  22. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 4th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread.

  23. OK. I may have narrowed it down to 3 areas. Grand Danube Vilshofen to Giurgiu Magnificent Europe. Amsterdam to Budapest Europe's Rivers and Castles Luxemborg to Nuremborg with Paris and Prague before and after to round out the two weeks. What to do you say? Which is the most scenic? What would you do if this was your first river cruise? I do realize that it is subjective.
  24. Our first cruise was on the S.S. Volendam out of Miami to Jamaica and Haiti November, 1979. We were hooked. Did have to pay an extra $40.00 each for fuel surcharge due to the situation in Iran. It cost us $350.00 for the both of us (plus the surcharge)for a 5 day cruise. Here we are soon going on our 45th cruise on Celebrity's Reflection and after that HAL's Nieuw Amsterdam. I guess you could say we like cruising......... Phil......floridacruisers
