  2. today is Junteenth and National Kissing Day In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. Therefore ... in the Old Silurian Period the Mississippi River was upward of one million three hundred thousand miles long ... seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long. ...

  3. It can vary a lot. In the lower left corner of the above map there is a scale (1km over 1mi) The furthest out HAL ship is the Nieuw Amsterdam, just below the "PH:MNL" in the box. Looks like me to be perhaps 8 miles out. The Rotterdam is in the little triangle closest to the shore, perhaps 2-3 miles off. Roy

  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. Two more changes from StarVista: The Soul Train Cruise, listed as being scheduled for January 17-24, 2021 on the Eurodam, has been rescheduled for January 22-29, 2022 on the Nieuw Amsterdam. The Country Music Cruise, listed as being scheduled for January 24-31, 2021 on the Eurodam, has been rescheduled for November 13-20, 2021 on the Nieuw Amsterdam.

  9. 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.
  10. I have had that experience even a short cruise (on the Nieuw Amsterdam) that had lots of sea time. On the other hand, I have been on one 7-day cruise - but only one - where if I had had to spend even one more day on the ship with the same people, I might have jumped overboard.
  11. Is there any where to go to view what the menu will be, day by day, in the MDR for a specific ship/cruise? I will be on the Nieuw Amsterdam in the Caribbean on February 15, 2020.

  13. 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/

  15. 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/
  16. I doubt that. I just hope we do not lose the Eurodam and the Nieuw Amsterdam, the "Signature Sisters."
  17. today is Flag Day and National Bourbon Day "When in doubt, tell the truth." -- Mark Twain Meal suggestion for today - Hot Chicken Salad Since Wine is a constant topic here, this is from the top 100 from Total Wine one of the last three years Louis Jadot Bourgogne vintage 2015 At Sea Indian Ocean Veendam destination Jakarta eta 6/19 Zuiderdam destination Port Klang eta 6/16 At Sea Pacific Koningsdam destination Puerto Vallarta eta 6/15 Oosterdam destination Balboa Panama eta 6/15 Jakarta Anchorage Eurodam Lubuan Maasdam Manila Anchorage Amsterdam Nieuw Amsterdam Noordam Rotterdam Volendam Singapore Anchorage Westerdam Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam
  18. One of the ill crew members on Zaandam died, the rest of the crew where outside at see and some weeks ago they put all crew members from Europe to the Nieuw Statendam and the Zaandam and they went to Rotterdam where the European crew members went back home. Here is the whole status : Currently, the following Holland America Line ships have completed repatriation efforts or are repatriating crew members and their locations are as follows: ASIA: Maasdam, Noordam and Westerdam are en route to the Philippines. Westerdam will continue onto Indonesia. Eurodam and Amsterdam are in the Manila Bay area in the Philippines. Nieuw Amsterdam, Volendam, Rotterdam, Zuiderdam and Veendam are transiting to Asia via ports in southern Africa. AMERICAS AND THE CARIBBEAN: Koningsdam is at anchor at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where efforts are underway to secure transportation home for a number of teammates. Oosterdam is at anchor at La Paz, Mexico, in minimum operating manning and will move closer to Panama in the coming days. EUROPE: Zaandam and Nieuw Statendam have brought several crew home to Europe and are at anchor in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, under minimum operating manning. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  21. Amsterdam has plenty of HAL company in Manila Harbor. Along with the Noordam, Volendam, Nieuw Amsterdam, the Rotterdam sailed in not long ago. Last I heard was that Amsterdam still has crew from India and Thailand (at least) that need to get home. Maybe they are waiting for flights from Manila? Linda R.

  23. Sell older ships ? Who's going to buy them ? The cruise business will be slow recovering and will have excess capacity for years. The secondary market, where older ships now go, is dead in the water - literally. Currently some of my old HAL favorites the Noordam III and the Westerdam II are languishing off Malta. The Noordam III has been listed as "adrift" for several days. Probably all destined for the breakers as was the fate of the Nieuw Amsterdam III back in 2019. I'm glad that the Rotterdam V was turned into a hotel and not scrapped. The Noordam III was our favorite ship and we knew that some day she would go to Alang. Carnival Corp has some very tough decisions to make in the near future.
