  1. Interesting and thanks for your post! No idea who was at the helm of the Amsterdam when we docked at an Asian port with only a few meters to spare between our bow and the stern of a freighter and the breakwater at our stern, but the docking was a masterful accomplishment. I assume Captain van Zaane was at the controls.
  2. I agree wholeheartedly. Never liked having two "Nieuw" ships. Already some people are dropping the Nieuw from Statendam anyway.

  4. Awesome decision Holland America Line! We are booked on her first TA next fall and excited that it's now going to be the flagship Rotterdam! (We are 3 stars but we've never sailed on the previous Rotterdam or any of the other smaller ships that were just sold....We love the K'dam and NS so this is all the better for us!) Now keep going Holland America.......perhaps...... drop the Nieuw in Nieuw Statendam (never understood the logic of that....now is the time to change the name) christen the Rotterdam with Dutch Royalty breaking the bottle of champagne (no political celebrity's again, please) save some $$$ and drop Oprah's contract (she is too political for me...leave political celebrities off the ships, please) Looking forward to smooth sailings ahead........
  5. Can someone tell me how much the lifeboats below block the view from this cabin? Are we better off with 5177 or 6169. thanks!
  6. I posed this question in the Northern Europe Ports forum, but thought I would see if the trusted HAL patrons had any input. I am currently considering the following 9-night Norway itinerary and was wondering how this fare compares to other Norwegian fjord itineraries. I understand that a journey to the Arctic Circle is ideal, but I don't think we have the time to devote to that cruise at this point (perhaps in the future, though!). Are there any duds or winners among the ports? Amsterdam Flam Sognefjord Bergen Molde Geiranger Geirangerfjord Stavanger Kristiansand Oslo Copenhagen I was immediately attracted to the itinerary because of the different start and end cities. I know Amsterdam is wonderful but don’t know much about Copenhagen or the ports in between. Is this itinerary a 'winner'? Thanks in advance for your input!
  7. Sorry - had a brain freeze, I meant the Gulf Bridge with the Amsterdam luggage going through the Panama Canal.
  8. Hello! I was notified in late January that I would be receiving a reimbursement From HAL for a non refundable hotel room charge related to the Feb. 1 cancellation of the N. Amsterdam because of mechanical issues. This was before the pandemic hit. I was promised a refund by the end of March. My TA and I have called and emailed numerous times about this but have only been told to wait. I know others with later cancellations have gotten their refunds. I have not received my check. I posted my frustration on the July 10 HAL FB post addressing their refund process. I was surprised to see a response there from HAL requesting that I email my booking info to them at socialmedia@hollandamerica.com. I have sent and received emails from other departments like guest relations, etc, but have never been told to email social media. Has anyone used the socialmedia email address to contact HAL? Has it speeded up the refund process? Or is this just another way for HAL to kick the can down the road? Thanks!

  12. The Ms Rotterdam is presently just north of Lisbon. According to port information the ship will be at the Cruise Port terminal for about 36 hours. We sailed the Rotterdam in 2011 from/to Rotterdam. An unforgettable experience. Ms Amsterdam now heading to Gibraltar ( presently near Sicily) also on way to Rotterdam. Peter

  14. I hope someone can post some pictures. We were in Amsterdam and Rotterdam several years ago. Wonderful cities. I hope we can return in the near future.
  15. Is the Pinnacle suite shower on the Nieuw Statendam the real small shower like in the pinnacle on the Volendam? The drawing shows it bigger but the only video i can find shows it being one of those round things that are very small.
  16. I suggest that from now on, we all boycot the idiotic name Nieuw Statendam and call her by her correct name: Ms. Statendam.
  17. Hi, I hope that Holland America keeps the Stephen Card paintings and items that have historical significance for the line. Because Holland America reuses ship names, it would be great if the Stephen Card paintings from the current Rotterdam could be installed aboard a future Rotterdam. Also, the artwork pictured above from the Nieuw Amsterdam of 1938 that currently is aboard the Amsterdam could be installed somewhere aboard the current Nieuw Amsterdam or a future ship. I am a big fan of Stephen Card's paintings and have several of his signed prints on my walls. I always enjoy viewing his paintings aboard the Holland America and Cunard ships. Chuck
  18. If you were on the same sailing we were, the crossing to New York, it was in honor of the last classic transatlantic crossing HAL did in november 1971 with the SS Nieuw Amsterdam. The 2011 sailing was Rotterdam-Southampton- New York - Cork - Rotterdam. Indeed there were a lot of people waving goodbye, all along the river and fireworks in Hoek van Holland . I’ve sailed out of Rotterdam 8 times , all on the Rotterdam, and there were always lots of people waving goodbye, not as many as on that special sailing but a few hundred everytime at least.
  19. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated July 10th, 2020 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).

  20. Amsterdam is showing the same way, maybe they just don't have a place for new owner/name and used the fields for former owner and name??
  21. Lovely! Happy retirement to Captain Jonathan. I wonder how Captain Schuchmann is feeling about all this, just as he takes over the Amsterdam....
  22. In case anyone is not following the Amsterdam thread, here is the last post by the Captain before retiring:
  23. Rotterdam has passed thru the Straits of Gibraltar and now shows a destination of Rotterdam. Amsterdam is still in the Med
  24. Someone please post on Cruise Critic once the time the Amsterdam goes through the Canal is known. would love to watch one of the webcams to view her last transit.
