  1. Hi all! First time posting here on CC. My wife and I are sailing on the Nieuw Statendam this coming December with another couple and wondering if the family cabana in the Retreat is large enough for 4 adults and what the interior configuration is like. Are there 4 lounges inside? Thanks in advance for any info on this.
  2. I am struggling with the search feature for this topic. We are trying to decide if we want to purchase the wine package or just wing it on board. Does anyone have a recent wine/beverage list from the NA they could share? Thanks in advance. Kathy
  3. We enjoyed our stateroom, 6051, on HAL's Nieuw Amsterdam recently during our first Alaskan cruise from May 11th to May 18th, 2019. The category V stateroom on Deck 6 is a balcony stateroom and is adjacent to an accessible stateroom with the larger angled balcony. I made a video about this stateroom for future guests and it's now available on YouTube along with other videos about our cruise. Enjoy! Scott
  4. What movies are playing on the Amsterdam?
  5. Does anyone know if there are charging USB ports in the nightstands on the Nieuw Amsterdam? I thought I saw this somewhere but not I'm having a hard time using the search function within the boards. Thanks!
  6. Once again I call on fellow cruisers for help ! Does anyone know the cell voice service/ texting rates (sending and receiving ) while onboard Nieuw Amsterdam when the ship is not in port ?
  7. How late could we disembark in Vancouver. We need to arrange transportation.
  8. Can't find the answer to this anywhere: what type of key can I expect to find for this ship? It is it the flat hotel type (in which case all of my clothes will need pockets or a lanyard) or is it a wrist band of some sort, in which case I don't. Seems like a silly question, but I want to be able to not think about my key everytime I leave the room, but know it is either in my pocket or around my neck! [And other things besides potentially a lanyard that I would not think to bring? 😊]
  9. The Signature Sisters will be spending Memorial Day in Juneau. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2200 and Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. Here's a forecast that you don't hear for Juneau very often -- "mostly sunny". The high will be 71F/22C (!) and the low 51F/10C. Sunrise is at 4:10 am and sunset at 9:39 pm. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  10. I know that ship doesn't have as many dining options as some of the newer ships. What are our options for embarkation lunch, and what would be your choice? Any special "not to be missed" menu items we should watch for? Thanks in advance!
  11. We are sailing at the end of June and we deliberately did something we have never done - booked an inside room. Ordinarily we book verandas, but at that time of the year it is light almost all night and we wanted a dark room for sleep. This means I will be spending more time outside our cabin reading or just watching the scenery. Where is your favorite spot to sit and quietly read? Is there a library or place to lounge that is relatively quiet. I am usually up early and go read the paper and have coffee until my spouse gets up. Have never been on this ship and it is a short cruise (7 days) and I thought I could ask this experienced crowd so I don't find some great spot on the last day :-).
  12. Could someone please explain the difference between a V and a VD cabin. Many thanks
  13. We bought two $50 soda fountain cards (bought for $25 each) for our upcoming sailing, before HAL gifted us with 2 beverage cards in lieu of a price adjustment. I doubt that we would be able to use $200 of soda and coffee in 14 days. Is the unused balance on either the soda card and/or the beverage card refundable? Or, do you think we could exchange the beverage cards for credit in the Pinnacle Grill? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments.
  14. I would normally get my hair cut and highlighted prior to sailing, but I'm running out of time! I've never used the hair salon on HAL. For those of you who have, what was your experience? Would you consider the quality of the services to be comparable to a good land-based salon, or more like a Super Cut type of experience? Do you tip the stylist during the visit, or are the gratuities included in the cost of the service?
  15. We will be sailing on the Nieuw Amsterdam at the end of the week. We know there are a bunch of movies that you can watch on the TV in your stateroom, but we like to go to the little movie theater to watch the movies. Anyone recently home (or on the sailing now) that can tell me what movies they are currently showing? Thanks!!
  16. Just looking for opinions from you all (southern a little) on whether or not you feel crowded on these ships. My DH and I have been on the Zaandam twice and the Nieuw Amsterdam once but that was only for 3 nights. Thanks
  17. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. Although clouds are predicted and there is a 20% chance of rain the high temperature is going to be a whopping 69F/21C. Low will be 48F/9C. Sunrise is at 4:22 am and sunset at 9:26 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  18. We booked our sailing on the HAL Amsterdam about 2 weeks ago, and there were only guarantee cabins available. We chose an unobstructed oceanview guarantee. We received our cabin assignment today -- 2713. What can you tell me about this cabin. It's on the back end, which we've never had before. From the diagram, it looks like there may be some type of walkway or something in front of our cabin? Is this cabin likely to be noisy? We don't mind walking to the staircase or elevators, but I'm hoping there is a quick way to get to the outside viewing areas from here.
  19. Does anyone know if HAL provides binoculars on the Nieuw Amsterdam Inside Passage Cruise ?
  20. I haven't seen a roll call for the Ft Lauderdale to Barcelona cruise, April 15-28, 2020, so here we go!
  21. Any news on when Club Orange will be available on Nieuw Amsterdam? Cruise booked for Oct 2019.
  22. As a long standing CC member my hometown Amsterdam has currently a beautiful outdoor free of charge International art festival going on. It just started yesterday and final day is September 15 2019. When you get off the ship and go to Central Station catch tram 24 to the stop Minervaplein and get off there. More then 80 figurative sculptures etc are on show. There is an English website is: www.artzuid.nl/en/ I will be sailing on Prinsendam final cruise for HAL on June 17 from/to Amsterdam and feel sad to see her go. Enjoy the visit to this great city. Peter
  23. Has anyone played pickle ball on the Nieuw Statendam? Do they provide the paddles & balls? Has their been a good response to the games?
  24. So confused on Holland America's inside cabin differences. Cannot find anywhere what the actually cabin size is, most sites say so and so sq ft up to 225 sq ft for an inside. I did read there are certain inside cabins that have a convertible sofa bed available. Does anyone know which ones or a good site to figure out the size of the rooms?
  25. Amsterdam is returning from herWorld Voyage. She will be at pier 21(starboard to) from 0430-1600. She will be headed out on a repositioning cruise - 17-days to Vancouver or 18-days to Seattle.
