  8. Hi all, We have booked on the NA - Tropical Caribbean - I am looking at the available cabins at the sale price - on deck 8, the ship layout as provided by HAL has Neptune Suites on both sides of the ship. When I look at the cabins online, they have each been converted into two aft balcony cabins. Question - does anyone know if the cabins are the same size as the other aft balcony cabins? For the ones on the far port and starboard, do you get the large part of the wraparound balcony? So tempted to try and get one of these - but worried about the balcony size (and of course the noise from the lido one deck above). Thoughts? TIA!

  12. I agree. I've only been on 1 cruise that started with an overnight. It was HAL Nieuw Amsterdam out of Venice. I seem to recall the muster being held on day 2 just prior to sailing.

  15. I finally got my cabin assignment, and this cabin is located near the forward elevators, with a handicapped VD on one side and an oceanview on the other. When I looked at the deck plan, the cabin itself looks like it's set a little farther back than some others and the balcony looks to be a bit deeper than the corresponding VDs on that deck. Is this correct? Has anyone ever stayed in either this cabin or the corresponding one on the starboard side? I assume the configuration is the same on the Eurodam, so if anyone has experience with these cabins on either ship, I'd love some feedback. Two pluses -- I'll be close to the elevators both near the piano bar and the Crow's Nest!
  16. We just finished our first HAL cruise, a week on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Already looking to book our next. Because I work for a large university, we can only really travel from about 12/12/20 to 01/10/21. We travel with four of our youngest children(ages 7-17) and usually bring one or two extra with us, so cost is definitely a factor. We LOVED Half Moon Cay. We don't like the itinerary on the Nieuw Amsterdam the week we are looking at (alas, no HMC!); none of us have ever been to any of the ports that the Veendam will sail to that week (Trujillo Honduras, Costa Maya Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize). We prefer smaller, quieter, more intimate ships. We don't smoke though and really appreciated not having to walk through a smoky casino on the HAL-NA. Our children don't need any activities to be entertained. Veendam has some very bad reviews. That isn't always truth, so we're looking for feedback. We just had four interior cabins on the Verandah deck of the Veendam held. Not sure if that was a good plan or not; we have a day or two to decide...

  20. Here is the March 2020 update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. Not too much new activity, perhaps the promoters are holding back announcing their new schedules until the current health scares subside. I have deleted the Noordam Dry dock that was listed for November/December 2020 as she is now shown as cruising at that time. The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  22. As OP intends to do a land and cruise vacation next year, the itineraries that are Anchorage - Vancouver or Vancouver - Anchorage would be the best fit. Both Princess and HAL have somewhat similar itineraries (both hit Hubbard and Glacier Bay southbound, and Glacier Bay and College Fjord northbound). For 2021, HAL has 2 ships for these itineraries: Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam. Princess has 4 ships: Royal Princess, Sapphire Princess, Star Princess, and Coral Princess. If you choose HAL, I would recommend Nieuw Amsterdam as it's slightly newer and has the Tamarind restaurant. If you go with Princess, it depends on what kind of ship you want - Royal Princess is pretty modern but very large (over 3000 passengers), Coral Princess seems to have the best reviews for Alaska but is smaller. Also, Southbound itineraries are more popular and priced accordingly - the same ship could cost $50-$200 more for a southbound trip vs a northbound trip in the same month.
  23. We are currently on the Nieuw Amsterdam that is stranded in Port Everglades due to machanical issues. Cabin has strong mildew/musty odors and we didn't have a response for 4 hours after reporting the issue to shipboard services. When we didn't get a response from shipboard services within a couple hours I called HAL directly and finally got our stewards to show up to check out the odor issue (4 hours after reporting it). We're from Florida so we can stay in a hotel in Lauderdale any time we like which essentially is what we are doing now. Surprisingly several bars are out of certain spirits and supplies as well (even though we are still in port where they have access to everything). Since we are stuck in port the casino and many services are suspended as well. Any suggestions on how to get resolution on any of this? Ideally I'd like them to provide a refund and let us off the ship but I know that is unlikely. Unfortunately we sprung for an SS Suite this time too so our out of pocket is significant ☹️. Earliest possible departure time is AM on 12/15. Thanks for any suggestions.
