  1. Same with us! We booked a Panama Canal in April 2022 Nieuw Amsterdam and I turn 60 on the actual day we will be transiting. Such a bright spot on the horizon!
  2. My wife and I have sailed several times on the Nieuw Amsterdam and on our last trip from San Francisco to Fort Lauderdale, via the Panama Canal we booked a family cabana for the entire cruise. It was delightful and I would be glad to answer questions on the Cabanas if anyone is interested.
  3. Might want to check on this listing. For November 21, 2020 HAL lists the Nieuw Amsterdam as starting a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise and a 14 day Western/Tropical Caribbean cruise. The Eurodam is starting a Tropical Caribbean cruise on November 22 and the Nieuw Amsterdam starts a Tropical Caribbean cruise on November 28. I was looking a Thanksgiving cruise and pulled up the future cruise listing to see what cruise(s) had been booked by fellow CCers.
  4. Thank you for the report. In this fluid situation Nieuw Amsterdam appears to be rounding the Cape of Good Hope and on her way into the Indian ocean. Apple pie sounds lovely today. Roy

  8. Well, I've read all of your comments and appreciate the views of you knowledgeable, experienced HAL cruisers. I was a dedicated loyal NCL cruiser. Unfortunately, NCL started expanding with bigger and bigger ships which do not appeal to me at all. Added to that were poor Pacific Coast itineraries and I had to find an alternative cruise line. The first line I tried was Princess. Great California coast itinerary, good excursions, loved the wine bar, but that was about all. We were jammed in like sardines. If you didn't get there really early, forget it, all the seats were gone. Not keen about sailing on Princess again. Then, last summer. I sailed to Alaska on the Nieuw Amsterdam. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Loved the music venues, especially the Lincoln Centre stage, enjoyed the educational talks and videos, thought the Test Kitchen was a waste of time, found the Exploration Lounge pretty boring. I hope to sail with HAL again but I do have concerns that the offerings could become a little dull after a few trips. So I do hope the powers that be are listening to you because I think HAL just needs a bit of tweaking and it could be perfect.
  9. I did! Nieuw Amsterdam February 27,2021. I’m excited to be able to show my husband HAL ( he has only been on Carnival). I’m close to 4 stars since my mother would take me all over the world . She passed away in January and one of her last words to me were “take the trip, make those memories “. I plan on doing just that ! What’s even better is that I booked at a casino rate and snagged a Neptune Suite for under 1300.00 ( including taxes, port fees, and insurance) whoohoooo!! Plus $400.00 in OBC !

  10. Thank you for the report. Nieuw Amsterdam is actually docked in Cape Town with a bunker barge alongside. At the moment EVERY day should be National (or International) Nurses day. For me it will be my usual Panera takeout (CHICKEN noodle soup for lunch but Mac&Cheese for dinner). Amazing how much fatigue we feel for as little as we are doing. Roy
  11. Excited to be enjoying spring break on the Holland Nieuw Amsterdam ship leaving Fort Lauderdale on March 14. Anyone else going? Heading out with my boys.

  13. As the meneer from Den Haag mentioned, Nieuw A, Rotterdam, and you can add Volendam and Zuiderdam to that duo, are enroute South Africa to, like AMsterdam did a couple of weeks ago, repat South African crew (Steiner/Spa, Art folks and some others) there. Also like Amsterdam is attempting to accomplish as we speak, the four ships will continue on to Indonesia and the Philippines to repat non-essential crew there. Besides Veendam (enroute Gibraltar), Nieuw Statendam and Zaandam are enroute Rotjeknor/Rotterdam to repat non-essential European crew

  16. My mom and I have been watching the videos from past cruises that we still have on VHS tapes as I have been working on capturing the video to convert to MPEG's and DVD's. Just finished another one from our 1991 Alaska cruise on the old Nieuw Amsterdam. Decided it was time to check on the ships off the west coast and those still in the Bahamas. When it comes to the remaining ships in the Bahamas there was another crew transfer and starting sometime earlier today they have all set out to get more crew home. According to the AIS for the ships on Marine Traffic, Zaandam - Rotterdam Nieuw Statendam - Rotterdam Zuiderdam - Cape Town Rotterdam - I think also Cape Town as her AIS says CPT Not HAL but also in the area the Sky Princess is also headed to Rotterdam. On the west coast there was another transfer involving the Westerdam, Noordam, Oosterdam, Koningsdam and the Seabourn Sojourn in All Saints Bay at Ensenada, Mexico. Maasdam wasn't involved in this one. The AIS for the Maasdam (PH MNL), Westerdam (Manilla Island) and the Noordam (Manilla) indicate they are all headed to Manilla. Oosterdam appears to be heading to Puerto Vallarta (MX PVR) and Koningsdam is TBA as she now has non Asian crew on board. And speaking of we did see on the NBC national news at dinner tonight a story about the American crew still on board and HAL was a part of it. Sure hope they can figure something out. So with the ships that were still in the Bahamas now headed where they are there won't be any more sail aways form Port Everglades till the fall. Hope all the ships and the crew on board now on the way home have a safe journey in doing so. I also like using https://www.cruisemapper.com/ as its just cruise ships and cruise lines are color coded with HAL being yellow.
  17. Been off the boards a few weeks, and last I had read, the NA was in shipyard having one of the engines fixed, and a cruise was cancelled. Is she back in the water and ok these days? we have a mid march cruise coming up

  19. I don't think we'll see this ever again, 22 Cruise Ships in one area. Just checked on Island Princess and they are 3000 miles from Cape Town, South Africa. Crown Princess who is ahead of her, has only 1200 miles to go for Cape Town. HAL Nieuw Amsterdam and Volendam is only 400 miles from Cape Town. Just heard on our local news the three cruise ships will tie up in Oakland Harbor for their 3 months for their stand down. One already in and it's the Seven Sea Mariner. Two more and one is the Norwegian Jewel coming in Tuesday and another Norwegian ship not yet named.

We are leaving on the 128-day Grand World Voyage. I would be extremely surprised if we actually left at 1600, however. First of all, the paperwork we received said 1700 and secondly, there has not been a GWV departure before 2000 since I began watching the webcam. In fact, some have not left until closer to midnight.

The PTZtv webcams can be found at https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ and https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/. Next up: Nieuw Statendam and Volendam on Sunday 5 January. On that topic, I am going to post Sunday's sail-away this evening (Friday) because I may not have time on Saturday to post. Please note arrival and departure times will likely change between now and then and even the piers could change. If I have the time Saturday night I will put in a revised schedule and bump up the post.
  25. This is exactly why I consider the itinerary. I read a blog by a young lady Some years ago who got quarantined on an Antarctica cruise, precisely at the time when they were in Antarctica. All she saw was the bow camera view.😥 As a solo, an inside generally fits my needs and budget. I save the $$ for when DH can join me. If I cruise in the future I will continue to weigh the risks, and likely pack a puzzle along with the usual loaded kindle and a needle work project, just in case. My cruising future depends more on what happens with this pandemic and what is left of the cruise industry. If it is only huge ships (such as Nieuw Amsterdam and Kingkongdam and sisters,), I won’t be stepping on the gangway. I may find after the dust clears it just the Alaska Marine Hwy I’m willing to sail.
