  4. We are sailing soon on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Two members of our group take a refrigerated medication at bedtime. I have had a few emails with HAL general customer service and Access & Compliance and have been told that the refrigerators in cabins are not meant for medication. However, we are welcome to keep our medications in the medical center. The issue is that these medications need to be taken at bedtime and the medical center is not open in the later evening. I am told that if we need to access our medication at a time when the clinic is not open, there will be a $35.00 fee to have the nurse open the medical center. Does anyone else have experience with this? We are trying to think of ways to possibly save the $245 total fee that this would cost over seven days. Maybe we can keep a cooler in our cabin and keep the medication cold with ice packs that we keep frozen in the medical center freezer? And have two sets of ice packs to rotate as needed? Any other ideas? Thank you!
  5. I have the opportunity to "cash in" reward points from work towards a Holland America cruise. I am just short of the amount needed for an Oceanview (and the way it is structured I can't just pay out of pocket to get an OV) but do have enough points for an interior room. There are 3 of us. The child would be 4 years old at the time and I do not want him in a pullman berth. Drawings on deck plan sites show a small sofa in interior rooms, but any videos I have been able to find online do not show a sofa of any type in an interior room. can anyone tell me what a K code interior is actually like and is it suitable to cruise for 3 with a small child? If it has a loveseat that folds out that would be ideal I suppose.

  7. With the new TVs post dry dock are the HDMI ports accessible if I wanted to hookup a laptop?
  8. On the Nieuw Amsterdam: Can the balcony partitions (dividers) be removed on any of the balcony (verandah) cabins? Or, just certain ones? Specifically, I'm looking into cabins on Deck 7 aft VE and VD categories. We'll be getting several in a row and would like the dividers removed, if allowed. In those same cabins, are there refrigerators? Thanks!
  9. Hi all - I have a girlfriend who is sailing on the Nieuw Amsterdam next month. She hasn't cruised much and has a couple questions regarding internet. She owns a pretty successful Etsy store and needs to be able to access her Etsy store daily. She has customers asking questions, artwork that needs to be uploaded or emailed, etc. She saw that she can buy a block of internet minutes, but she's wondering how that works as it relates to uploading or emailing artwork. Do the number of minutes it takes to upload a file simply come off the block of minutes she's purchased? What if she uploads multiple files at the same time? I was thinking that her best option might be to simply get an international plan with her cell provider and use that to access her store. There are only 2 sea days in their itinerary. Just looking for some more detailed info on how the internet plans work and any suggestions everyone might have for her. TIA!! 🙂
  10. Which is the better one for a Caribbean cruise?
  11. We have just booked this cruise - 1st timers on HAL! Married couple, early 50's, adventurous and up for meeting like minded souls on our cruise!
  12. Are all the after balconies (not wrap-arounds) the same size? This has probably been asked before, so if someone could direct me to a thread, that would be helpful. And are the middle aft cabins larger? Thanks!
  13. I just got off the Nieuw Amsterdam after a two week cruise. Any questions for me? I'm happy to answer anything I can!
  14. I don't want to step on Scrapnana's or Boytjie's toes but with Cruise Critic having been down overnight I don't think they do a lot of morning posting so here goes. We have Nieuw Amsterdam on a Malt Shop Memories charter 7-day cruise to Grand Turk, San Juan, and St. Kitts. She came in really early this morning. Zuiderdam is 10-day Partial Panama Canal cruise to Half Moon Cay, Aruba, Curacao, the canal, Colon, and Puerto Limon. She came in later this morning. Also in port are Anthem of the Seas and Celebrity Reflection (both briefly), Carnival Conquest, and Adventure of the Seas. In Tampa the Rotterdam leaves at 5 for a 14-night Southern Caribbean cruise to San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Johns, St. Lucia, Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Cayman. Also in port are NCL Pearl and Carnival Miracle. The Tampa webcam is http://portttampawebcam.com and for Ft. Lauderdale http://ftlauderdalewebcam.com and http://portevergladeswebcam.com
  15. Hi I'm looking at a cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam sailing 14th December 2019. I sailed on the Eurodam last year and loved her, I had a balcony but hardly used it so this time I am looking at an outside cabin. I did consider a inside but not sure if I would like one of these. Could I have opinions on the following cabins 6003 and 6004 (problem with movement) 1102,1112,1118,1120 (don't seem to be under anything) Regards Tiggipaws
  16. I cannot locate the roll call for our sailing on December 2nd, 2018 out of Ft. Lauderdale on the Nieuw Amsterdam. I see one for Dec 9 but not specifically for our dates. Any suggestions?
