  1. We are looking at booking an Alaskan 14 day cruise tour for June/July 2021. They have the same itinerary. Which ship would you choose? Thank you for your input!
  2. I noticed on MarineTraffic that the Rotterdam and the Nieuw Amsterdam are headed for South Africa and the Veendam set course for Gibraltar. Does anybody know why ? All three ships were ( hopefully are) due for European cruises. So at least the Veendam is going in the right direction but the others aren’t. As far as I am concerned they are welcome in their homeport of Rotterdam . They can join the World Dream that has been berthed in port since a drydock in Rotterdam four weeks ago. Plenty of space at an unused container terminal.
  3. This is the 1983 version so don't panic - this is the Nieuw Amsterdam III. On Google Earth I looked at Alang India, where ships go to die and there was either the Nieuw Amsterdam III or the Noordam III. The satellite view was dated in January of 2019 so the ship would be cut up by now. HAL had leased both ships but was still listed as the owner. Did HAL send one of them to Alang to be broken up ? The ship on the satellite view looks like either the Nieuw Amsterdam III or the Noordam III. We sailed on both ships and have many good memories. Sad to see them go.
  4. Had checked in on the ships out in the anchorages where the ships have been hanging out south of Grand Bahama earlier today and noticed there was a lot of tender activity between the ships. Today was apparently the day that crew was moved accordingly for their rides home. They have all 3 left the area where they have been with a destination showing up on their AIS. Nieuw Amsterdam says Durban, South Africa. Volendam lists Bridgetown (probably Barbados) and Veendam is now en route to St. Thomas. They are all 3 doing 15- 17 knots located south of Abaco. Here's hoping a safe journey home for everyone and a safe return of the 3 ships in the fall. Will give me something to do to follow their journey. Eurodam is into her journey across the Pacific and in tandem with the Royal Princess and Carnival Panorama northeast of the Hawaiian Islands. This is also to bring crew home. Stay safe and healthy everyone. www.marinetraffic.com https://www.cruisemapper.com/
  5. Nieuw Amsterdam will be making yet another appearance in Port Everglades, FL, tomorrow, Monday, 20 April 2020 for bunkering and provisioning. She is scheduled to arrive at Berth 26 at 0700 hrs local. Her scheduled departure time, although not yet confirmed, is 5:00 PM local. Nieuw Amsterdam, is one of the ships designated by the HAL Group to "ferry" designated non-essential crew from other laid up HAL Group ships back home and she, Nieuw A, will consequently be sailing to Asia shortly. The only other cruise ship in PE port tomorrow will be Regal Princess (0600-4:00 PM; Berth #2) Regal P. is another Holland America group vessel designated as a "crew ferry ship". She'll be ferrying crew back to Southampton and Rotterdam. The remaining "crew ferry" ships in the group are Volendam, Veendam, Caribbean Princess, Crown Princess, Island Princess and Seabourn Quest. This does not include Amsterdam and Eurodam already enroute to Indonesia and the Philippines to disembark non-essential crew You can watch the action tomorrow on only one webcam (Port Everglades) since the other (Ft. Lauderdale) is under renovation https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/
  6. Thinking of booking cabin 4166 because of the large balcony. This would be for a 18 day Panama Canal cruise. Any information on noise issues with either of these cabins? Thanks for any info.
  7. Hello. We finally got squared away on a BtoB on this ship and are very pleased. We had sailed on Eurodam previously and liked many things about her (BB Kings, Cabanas, size,etc.). I tried doing searches on VE cabins but could not find any info/ recommendations. We had booked 7111 and I saw subsequently 8013,14,20,23,24 were available. We generally like being higher and to the front of the ship but it would be greatly appreciated to hear any comments. What I gathered from skimming 33 pages of a post on a different site was that some balconies may be narrower, have more obstructed railings, and that some cabins may have shower vs/tub shower? None of the cabins above were listed specifically. So our laundry list questions would be: Would some cabins have larger balconies? Larger overhangs (prefer smaller) Potential noise issues? Walk in shower-preferred Thanks in advance for any guidance, Heathy and Happy Cruising.
  8. For those of you used to watching the sail-aways out of Ft. Lauderdale/Port Everglades, HAL's Veendam will be making a rare appearance today, Saturday, March 28, 2020 in order to take on fuel, water and some stores, as well as a small bit of crew turnover. She is due in at 0530 hrs and going to berth 19. Prelim departure is scheduled for 9:00 PM One hour later at 0630 hrs, HAL's Nieuw Amsterdam is scheduled in Port Everglades for the same purpose, and is assigned her routine berth 26.

  11. I am scheduled to go on the Nieuw Amsterdam ship out of Fort Lauderdale on April 4th to Spain April 17th. We booked it through HAL directly, including the flight back. I'm trying to figure out if this will be canceled or changed in some way. Details are sparse from HAL directly. If Spain becomes a Corona virus target, would the ship go elsewhere, or would they potentially cancel the 13 day cruise entirely? Will HAL help with the flight back as it was booked through them? Definitely still looking forward to the trip, but also don't want to be in Quarantine for a month!

  19. Hi, we are traveling on Nieuw Amsterdam in May with a group of 18. We booked with a TA and asked for balcony rooms. We are in 5087 and I’m wondering if it’s an obstructive view. Wish we booked direct as I don’t think TA is looking out for our best interests. TIA
  20. We are considering the Transatlantic on NA in April and wondering if there is anyone who can tell us about Club Orange on that ship. We plan to be in a Neptune suite as we have been in the past so we are concerned about dining. Normally we are on the upper level of MDR at a table for two at second seating and find the prospects of being in a roped off area in the dining room very unappealing. It would be out first experience on a ship with CO. I admit we have some trepidation about this program. I guess everyone may have different perspectives on that. Although we are 4 Star Mariners we have never cruised on NA and would greatly appreciate any information in general. Is Lincoln Center stage on NA? There is the possibility of waiting for Zuiderdam a few weeks later. Can anyone make a comparison? Thanks to all.
  21. Are there chairs on the outside promenade deck of the Nieuw Amsterdam? Recently was on the Koningsdam and they had none. Used to sail Holland and remember the teak wood lounge chairs under the life boats on the promenade deck.
  22. Zuiderdam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She will be doing a 7-day Tropical Caribbean cruise.

She is doing a Country Music charter. Philipsburg, St. Maarten (28 Jan 0800-2359); San Juan, Puerto Rico (29 Jan 1100-2300); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (31 Jan 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (01 Feb a0700 Also in port are Celebrity Equinox at pier 25 from 0600-1530, Carnival Sunrise at pier 4 from 0430-1600, Sky Princess at pier 2 from 0500-1600, and Costa Luminosa at pier 19 from 0345-2300.

  23. Does anyone happen to have the 7 day Eastern Caribbean from Ft Lauderdale (Key West, Amber Cove, Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay) daily programs that they can upload? I am dying to see what they have to offer during the day. Also, trying to see when Gala nights are....etc. We are sailing this March! Can't wait! Thank you!!
  24. We’re sailing Feb 8 (hopefully) on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Can anyone tell me who the Piano Players were on your cruise and if you know how long their contract runs for. TIA Keith
  25. We are looking to take our first cruise on HAL. Can anyone give me some input as to whether an aft facing balcony in the Mediterranean is a good pick?
