  1. At Newcastle cruise terminal. The daily Amsterdam ferry has just left.wst VID_20201009_164240.mp4
  2. It will be sunsets rather than sunrises for the next couple of days. On October 8, 2017 the MS Amsterdam crossed the International dateline. While it was officially October 8 ship's time, I figure by then actual local time was October 9. Roy

  5. She floats! Thanks for sharing.......We plan to board her in Amsterdam a year from tomorrow for the trans-Atlantic sailing......"God willing and the Creek don't rise"
  6. Well - I recently made some changes and cancelled my March 2021 Caribbean sailing on the Nieuw Statendam and the my March 2022 sailing on Volendam to rebook for a b2b on Nieuw Statendam in the Meditrranean in October 2021. I feel about 90% that it will sail and about 75% sure there will be port changes. The bigger question is will the EU countries be admitting US citizens (without quarantine) by then or not. I think several cruise lines are modifying their European deployments for next year to be more appealing to EU/UK based clients in anticipation that US citizens may not be permitted to travel.

  8. A wise recommendation, I believe. Even though I was an experienced cruiser, I booked the final segment of the Amsterdam's 2007 World Cruise in order to "test the waters of that type of cruise" before definitely committing to the full 2008 World Cruise on the Amsterdam.
  9. Can anyone recommend a hotel near the Anne Frank House. I have a client that cannot walk too far and would like something in that area. The next day she is going on Viking and can get transportation. Thank you.
  10. Loosing the Maasdam, Veendam, Rotterdam and Amsterdam this year and Prinsendam two years ago, was very sad for many of us. Loosing the "exotic" itineraries is maybe even sadder. We have had Australia and New Zealand on our bucket list as well as those small South Pacific and Asian ports. Maasdam was our choice, but now it will have to be Oosterdam if we go and we know it can't access some of them. Let us hope there will be still be some itineraries for those of us that don't want to restrict cruising to the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Alaska, and the big city ports of Europe.
  11. Azipods were first used on a Holland America Line with the 2000 Amsterdam, the last of the four R class ships. The Volendam and the Zaandam are equipped with shaft driven propellers. All of the fleet since have been azipod equipped.
  12. today is National Cheeseburger Day, National POW / MIA Recognition Day, and Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown "Gee, Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore."

  13. They were the perfect size. Very comfortable, and a smooth ride (weather permitting LOL). Nieuw Amsterdam was my very first trip with HAL, and so began the love affair with that line.
  14. Old Noordam or old Nieuw Amsterdam.
  15. Probably 7 day Caribbean cruises out of Fort Lauderdale. There already are a couple of charters reflecting this and it is what Nieuw Statendam did.
  16. today is Citizenship Day & Constitution Day, and National Apple Dumpling Day Stop searching. Happiness is right next to you.

  17. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 11th, 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).

  19. Good morning all, and thank you, Rich and Roy for all you do. Smoke is less today, I can see further, and a watery sun is shining through. It's supposed to start raining Friday. I thought 2020 was World Sight Year! We both went to our optometrist a couple of weeks ago. I needed a new prescription, Pat was okay. The optometrist called yesterday to say he is referring me to my ophthalmologist, I have "narrow angles" (risk for glaucoma) and cataracts, so I may need surgery to fix both at the same time... Pooh! The Amsterdam luggage return home might be added to the Celebration list, @rafinmd!
  20. Not tricky for me though as it was way back in 2011 that we went there! We really need to go back to AK; only been the one time on the 2 week Amsterdam cruise.
  21. Good morning Dailyites. Thanks as always for good thoughts and pictures. Amazing balloon kites!! I had double cataract surgery two years ago so I can appreciate eye care. Armagnac Sidecar sounds delicious especially with an Ocean Bar or Crows Nest wrapped around it. Expect to leave a year from today for Amsterdam to board Rotterdam for the TA to Ft Lauderdale. Great to see pictures of the float out. Stay safe everyone. Prayers and Cheers Cindy
  22. Thank you for the Daily, Rich. Touch Tag is probably not a good idea in these times. Balloons are a lovely sight up in the air. I hope people are able to get their sight checked in these trying times. Interesting quote. Nice to see that Rotterdam is now floating. I hope she gets fitted for AIS fairly soon. On October 8, 2017 we crossed the international Dateline on the Amsterdam. While administratively the ship observed the entire day as October date but I assume we crossed the dateline during the day so I will also assume my final October 8 meal was lunch. My alternate menu suggestion is Naked Fries from Dive-In. Today's care list: Mrs Vmax Caregiver Gsel and her DH battling Alzheimers Burnout at work, especially Live4cruises Deceased CC Member wizard-of-roz and her family California and Colorado Wildfires Seasick Sailor;s skunk those in the path of Delta President Trump, Melania and the entire White House staff Denise’s friend with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. and Krazy Kruisers and Joe Today's Celebrations and shoutouts: Front Line Health Care Workers Teachers and school workers Ger_77 visiting grandchildren cruisin single helping Colorado firefighters and two bicyclists, a white Trump fan and black Biden supporter who pedaled together from Portland ME to Portland Or in a “Unity ride” Roy
  23. I highly recommend holiday cruises. If one could include a Christmas segment with the New Year's cruise, it makes the experience even better, I think. I have experienced New Year's Cruises on Nieuw Amsterdam, Zaandam, Volendam, and Prinsendam. All were memorable and each--even though they were all aboard ships of HAL--were different in some respects. If you are interested in my experiences, please respond to this post and I will provide some details.
