  1. My wife and I are considering a cruise on the Amsterdam to South America. I know that HAL has abandoned Ballroom Dancing on many of its ships. However, on the web site it says that there is Live Music and Dancing in the Ocean Bar in the evenings. Is this still true? Are they still playing music suitable for ballroom dancing? We have sailed on the Amsterdam many times in the past and the dancing was quite good. However, it seems they are moving away from this and we don't want to have the wrong expectations. Thank you in advance for this information.
  2. Does anyone have photos of the fitness center on the Amsterdam? I am working with my trainer to create some new programs for me while I’m on the World Cruise. I can’t find any decent photos of the gym online that show the various types of equipment on board the Amsterdam. I’d appreciate any links to pics.
  3. MS Amsterdam Sept 30 – Dec 21, 2018 Our background: Couple in our early 70s, well travelled, cruised on 15 different lines including HAL. We pick cruises for their itineraries. This 82 day cruise was the longest we had ever taken and we are pleased to say that it was also one of the best. Fellow passengers: Not surprising on such a long cruise, more than two thirds were 66 and over. Most were avid HAL cruisers and many like long cruises on the Amsterdam. Ship: In good shape; frequent cleaning going on inside and maintenance outside. Cabin: We had suite 7028 and enjoyed the extra service on the navigation deck. The balcony had a lot of space; the refrigerator was filled with sodas that we replaced with the water bottles that were brought daily. The cabin was large enough for us with ample storage. We have enjoyed more modern décor and more sophisticated storage cabinets on newer ships of European lines, but we were happy with this cabin. The stewards made it spotless. The suite comes with free laundry which is the greatest thing since sliced bread. The laundry looked better than at home. Crew: The hotel staff is definitely the best we have ever encountered. On other ships, it is often just a few members who go out of their way to be helpful. On the MS Amsterdam, the warm and friendly service was consistent. Everyone in the Lido buffet restaurant, the dining room, and the Neptune Lounge went way beyond what we are used to from other ships, including the Hapag Lloyd luxury line. Nothing was too much for our waiters, tea and honey when I had a cold, spicy sambal when I thought an Asian dish needed more pep, crispy dinner rolls, you name it. Food: I believe the food budget was higher on this cruise than on our previous 14 day b2b cruises on HAL ships. We are picky about authentic taste. We were happy with the European dishes that tasted just like in the Old Country. There was daily sushi and an Asian counter in the Lido, but also all the American favorites. Daytime activities: There were so many to choose from that every passenger could find several to enjoy. I went to water color, arts & crafts, and Tai Chi taught by Master Cathy Chen, but there were many more options. My husband played bridge organized by a bridge instructor. All the presenters were interesting with topics on the regions where we travelled. Port information speakers were excellent. We had wonderful cultural ambassadors in Australia and from Fiji to Hawaii. Courageous passengers learned to dance the hula and to play the ukulele. Conclusion: We are looking into booking another HAL grand voyage.
  4. Hoping for some help with a stateroom question. We are booked and within the final payment of our upcoming cruise in a VA category stateroom on the 6th deck and there will be 2 adults and our twin boys in the room. I noticed that there is a stateroom available, on deck 4, stateroom 4156 with a oversized balcony (their is a crew stair well next to the room, and that’s why the balcony is extra long) Is it worth it to contact our travel agent to move rooms, is it even worth it and would we lose our OBC?
  5. Can anyone post a copy of the daily cruise planner from the Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Nieuw Statendam? Just want to see a typical day of activities onboard the ship. Thank you.
  6. Is there any special or sale on internet pricing on the NS? Does HAL give out coupon books onboard? If so, how do I obtain one? Thank you.
  7. My husband and I are planning a April 2019 cruise. We just randomly came across this ship and it being new and beautiful intrigued us. We have been on Carnival and RC and enjoy the laid back nature of these lines, entertainment, nightlight, and food. We are mid 30s and no kids. Would we enjoy this ship and cruise as well? I dont like feeling overly stuffy atmospheres or having to be dressed up at all times. We enjoy being entertained and some drinks. Both itenteriaries offered in April for this ship were good also with some ports we have not yet been to.
  8. We are going on a mexican cruise druring spring break, I see lots of posts about other ships. We were on the Veendam last Easter. What kind of differences will we experience? We have 2 teens coming too.
  9. Hi, I'm wondering what upgrades were done to the verandah cabins on deck 6 on the Amsterdam at it's dry dock last spring. Specifically if they added any USB outlets and if they took out that nice medicine cabinet storage above the sink. I really dislike those open shelves and the cabinet is great on a long cruise. Anything else that anyone knows about would be good info also. We are spending 4 months on her in a couple weeks! Thanks, Linda R.

  11. Has anyone stayed in this cabin? Looks like a larger obstructive balcony with some ocean view.
  12. I was wondering about a midship cabin on a lower deck... And now I am seeing that it looks like the one Gangway is right there, mid-ship, off the Atrium on Decks 1 and 2. Is that. true. that would be a traffic area on Port Days. I am also wondering about noise from B.B.Kings. (which is forward on Deck 2 on the N.S.) in cabins near the Atrium on Deck 1. Would the sound/beat travel that far? Can any of you offer any good info?
  13. Cruising next month on our 5th HAL cruise, 14 days B2B Caribbean. Question for those who have already been on the new ship since christening last month. What is the status of the electrical outlets beside the bed? Are there USB ports bedside for phone/tablet charging? I have a new CPAP that will require a plug in reasonable proximity to the bed. Do I need to bring an extension cord or are there close outlets that will suffice? Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  14. I hope the experts can help with this... I am rethinking the cabin we have booked. (after just having a forward higher deck on our recent cruise - whoa!!!) And am seeing a low deck, mid-ship, cabin available. It is on the Main Deck, close to the bottom level of the Atrium. Can anyone give me any insight on what kind of noise/traffic there might be. Music Walk is forward of the Atrium, on Deck 2. Could this be an issue? I am wondering if I should consider one of the new Ocean View cabins that were added to the Nieuw Statendam on the Main Deck. Any thoughts?
  15. Have been planning an anniversary trip to one of the ABC islands for snorkeling and was having a hard time choosing and spending so much $$ to go to one place, not knowing if I would like it. Decided to check on taking a cruise and ran across the Nieuw Statendam 10 day cruise that visits all three islands for much less than spending a week on one island. I have not cruised HAL, but have cruised Carnival, NCL and RCL on family cruises. I am happy to leave the water slides and rollerblading behind for sure. Is there anything I need to be aware of by booking something so close to the departure date? Cabins choices are not great. I am choosing between guarantee or a aft cabin on deck 5 (choices are 5011, 5012 and 5014) Only incentive is prepaid tips by online agency. The price, $2500 seems okay for a 10 day cruise, but I am not sure. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
  16. Can any one give me advice on where to purchase wine upon boarding a HAL cruise aboard the Nieuw Statendam Sept 2020 from Amsterdam I am contemplating buying wine before we embark and paying the $18 corkage Is there a good wine shop close to port? Perhaps like Barcelona there is a wine shop after you have passed thru check in and security? I am thinking this might be more economical than the wine packages offered on HAL? Would appreciate any input many thanks

  20. My husband and I just got back from our first-ever cruise together on the second sailing of the Nieuw Statendam. We chose HAL, a 4-night itinerary and this ship as a "test cruise" to see if we would like cruising as an alternative to a beach resort vacation. We booked a Vista suite on Deck 5. We later got an email with the Club Orange offer which we signed up for. A few days before the cruise, we got an upgrade offer for a Neptune suite which after subtracting what we paid for Club Orange would have been a great deal, but we waited too long to call and they sold out. Boarding Boarding went fine but the communication was a bit of a mess on this as to what time our ship would depart and what time to be there. Despite being told the week before that priority boarding would begin at 2pm, it started an hour or so earlier. No big deal, we got there in plenty of time and had a minimal wait in line. Seems like communication could be better - I would love an option to receive updates on boarding and departure via text rather than email. The Stateroom The Vista Suites are only a slight bit bigger than the balcony rooms. Very nicely laid out but small. If we spent any time in the room we were tripping over each other. Our bed was comfortable and television worked fine. The bathroom was pretty amazing for such a tiny space. High quality fixtures, good water temp and water pressure in the shower. Balcony was small but nice - it had two adjustable-back chairs (not loungers) and a little table to put drinks on. Our two stewards were great and they came in multiple times per day to tidy up. The Ship and Crew It is a beautiful new ship that is well laid out. Most of the time, we did not feel that there were thousands of people traveling with us. At times, we would be outside walking around and run into only one or two other people. The crew was very professional and helpful and went out of their way to greet people in passing. Restaurants and Food One of the reasons we chose HAL was food - we are foodies and wanted a cruise line that had more than buffets. We ate at the Lido a few times - once for breakfast and twice for lunch. Food ranged from ok to good - similar to a buffet at one of the nicer Las Vegas resorts. Very crowded though - many stations had lines and it could be hard to find a table to eat at. We also had burgers at Dive for lunch - good (not great) burgers and fries that took 20 minutes. Staff seemed overwhelmed by demand. One burger arrived undercooked. Another day I had a pizza at the New York Deli and it was excellent, but required a 25 minute wait. The issue at the Deli seemed to be more of an organizational issue with staff versus too many orders. Two of our dinners and two breakfasts were at Club Orange which we really enjoyed because of the intimate environment and excellent service. The food was consistently good, good enough that if we had a do-over, we would have skipped the gala night MDR meal and just eaten here. Yeah - I know some people on other threads think that it looks uncomfortable or not formal enough, etc. This may be a generational issue though. We are middle-aged, not-retired professionals and it worked for us, but we typically like non-chain, chef-owned small restaurants. The MDR was very pretty design-wise, but we did not enjoy our experience that much for the one dinner we ate. Our server was very nice, but service was uneven and our main course arrived after a lengthy wait and was not very hot. The food all tasted like it had sat for a while under the metal covers. We ordered glasses of wine and they arrived pre-poured. We skipped desert. The whole experience to us felt like the big company Christmas party or large wedding reception. Just not our thing. The Pinnacle Grill was a mixed experience. Our food was fantastic - the best of the cruise. The dining experience was not as good - despite the restaurant being only 3/4 full we were seated next to a large party with two over-tired crying toddlers. We asked to be re-seated and they stuck us next to the service gallery (punishment for asking?) although our server told us we were the 2nd couple next to the toddler table that had asked to be moved. The dinner service was uneven with long waits between some courses but not others. We were not crazy about the decor, it felt outdated - too dark and formal. It also had the smell of old restaurant and the ship is brand new which is just odd. Shows and Entertainment Lincoln Center and BB King Blues Club were our favorites. We went to multiple shows for each of these and the performers were amazing. Luckily for us, Lincoln Center is daytime and early evening and BB King was later evening so we could see multiple performances in one day. Having musical entertainment like this will make us choose HAL again for a cruise. We also went to a Rolling Stone Rock room performance which I enjoyed and my husband did not. I thought the band was good and he thought they were just ok and too loud. Your mileage may vary ... We saw the comic who pulled people out of the audience for more of an improv type show with nothing offensive or controversial. We did not see the first dance show Humanity but saw the later one Stages. It was fine, if you like interpretive dance. Despite what I read elsewhere there actually were not a lot of people walking out. I saw one or two elderly people and a few teenagers leave. I thought the older people were heading to bathroom/bed and the teens to the dance floor 😉 . Just like I left a Lincoln Center performance because I had a dinner reservation. Each performance on the ship was just 45 minutes - so even if you don't like it you're not giving up hours of time if you stay to be polite. Casino, Pools and Hot Tubs We only walked through the casino, but it was busy. Very smoky. We did not use the Lido pool and pool deck. Because of the holiday, the pool and hot tubs were overrun with kids who all looked like they were having a good time. We went to the pool bar on the Aft deck and used the hot tubs out there since it was pretty much adults only. One evening we had it to all to ourselves! Other Passengers Most of the folks we met were wonderful and luckily I saw no one in bathrobes except at the spa (which was fantastic for facials and massages). More puzzling to me was the number of people who announced their 4 or 5 star Mariner status as if it was supposed to mean anything to me. I was tempted to counter with my airline or hotel program status as a joke, but just let it go. Bottom Line Beautiful new ship with plenty to keep busy even if the weather outside is not sunny and tropical. We are thinking about another longer cruise next year and will likely book on HAL in a Neptune Suite to get a bit more room. We spent a little over ~3K total for our room, (including Club Orange), service fees, one specialty dinner, alcohol, lots of specialty coffees, 4 spa treatments, unlimited laundry service and internet and felt that it was worth it.
  21. We've been on 20+ cruises, and this was our (husband and myself) first on Holland America. We chose our first cruise on HAL to be on the beautiful Nieuw Statendam, and indeed it was beautiful. There were a few surprises that we weren't expecting, but that's just because we hadn't seen them on other cruise lines before. We seen people walking around in their bath robes throughout the ship. Is this a norm for HAL cruises? One night while we were eating dinner in Lido, we seen a man walk by in his bath robe. I was stunned. It just surprises me that you're suppose to wear a collared shirt, and slacks or skirts, or whatever to the theater, yet there's people that walk around with bathrobes on. Guess some people haven't figured out that the word "bath" doesn't mean you wear it in a dining area. And just when I thought that was bad, I watched one of those "special needs" dogs (this one happened to be a golden retriever and I seen 2 of them on this cruise), sniff the desserts at Lido, and once when it walked out the elevator with it's person, it left the elevator smelling of wet dog. Smokers have very little space to smoke, but the special needs dogs have a special place to poo and pee, located on the promenade deck where people have to walk by it. (Oh, and I'm not a smoker, but my husband vapes, and noticed that there weren't many places to smoke) The Casino smelled of cigarettes and we only seen one person smoking. I had heard that the food was very good on Holland America ships, but I was shocked when the 2nd night on the ship, there was lobster served on the buffet. That's a first for us. Not sure if HAL serves lobster on all of their buffets during a course of a cruise, but they did on this particular ship. The food was delicious, and the crew was the best we've ever had the opportunity to meet. BB King was absolutely amazing. And even with the wet dog elevator, and the older crowd walking around in bath robes, we're planning our next cruise to be with HAL. Just wish they'd build a dock at Half Moon Cay, so everyone didn't miss having the opportunity to visit it so much, because I've heard that it's one of the best private islands, it's just a shame that our ship didn't make it there. 😞
  22. Here is a list of songs currently playing on the NS. This list contains 23 0f the 27 songs they played. I lost the other 4 lol. They do three 9 song sets each night. The Memphis based band is still learning other covers so expect this to evolve. They are very talented. Two guitarists, bass, keys and drummer make up the five piece current lineup. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask as I spent some time talking with them. Hope this helps people traveling on the NS.

  24. We are doing the 2019 World Cruise and have 2 questions about the ship. 1) Thinking about bring my sleeping pillow. I'm never 100% satisfied with the pillows on a cruise ship. My pillow is a king size. Does the Amsterdam have king pillow cases? Or are they all queen (or smaller) size? I don't want to have to bring (and wash) my own pillow cases. 2) Does the Amsterdam gym have foam rollers? We like to use them regularly after working out. In particular, we are looking for a very firm full round roller, plus a half round. We can bring them but it's a pain since we are flying. Thanks in advance!
