  2. Interesting choice of vessels. Nieuw Amsterdam and Veendam are both scheduled to be doing Mediterranean cruises this summer (from July) and Volendam was listed for Alaska and now has nothing until Fall, (October). I wonder are HAL signalling that there will be no Med cruises in 2020 even though they still have them on the website from July?
  3. December 5, 2020 - Nieuw Amsterdam, 7 day Eastern Caribbean. My 5th HAL cruise, my friends 1st. Unfortunately, our June 10th Alaskan cruise on Volendam was cancelled.
  4. If the port schedule holds we have Nieuw Amsterdam Monday, Zuiderdam and Rotterdam Tuesday and Nieuw Statendam on Wednesday. Roy

  7. We had an aft wrap suite on Nieuw Amsterdam on deck eight this last September. Noise was never an issue. We never saw anyone looking down on to our balcony. Other passengers would have to go to the far end of the lido deck to see your balcony. Most don't. Also, if you note the pictures, they would have to lean out to look down. There's far more privacy on deck eight than on any other of the aft wraps. Another great feature is that it's very convenient to get up to the lido for a snack, a meal, or to get a drink. While we much prefer the deck five aft wraps on the Vista Class (fully covered and large enough to play basketball), we would book deck eight again. No question. For a bit of background, we are very particular about our cabins and about our balconies. We like a fully covered deck. We like a big balcony. For example, while the Princess Royal class are beautiful, we will not book those ships because of their very small balconies. BTW, have you seen the pictures on halfacts.com?
  8. We had a corner Neptune on Nieuw Amsterdam on deck 8. The balcony was absolutely huge, but there was some noise when they cleaned the deck above but not often.
  9. We're new to HAL, but very much enjoyed our Nieuw Amsterdam cruise tour, Denali National Park.

  12. I've been in deck 6 Signature Suites on the Nieuw Amsterdam a few times. The connecting door is by the entry door where a closet usually is, so you have one less closet area. I never noticed noise from the connecting room in the door area. Unless you have many clothes I see no problem with the rooms. The rooms have lots of drawer space. I love the Signature Suites! ~Nancy

  14. I cancelled my trip with the 50/50 arrangement - the mix of cash back and FCC. I was to travel with friends on the Nieuw Amsterdam April 28 Med. Tapestry. Quite disappointed naturally. My friends are not available next year to cruise. If I decide to go it would probably be a solo trip and not sure at my age - 72 - that I want to do this. That is if HAL would permit me ( have well controlled diabetes - and am in excellent health according to my dr. I have a feeling that if things aren't settled by December 31 2020 I will let the FCC go. I am hoping that maybe HAL will extend the booking deadline. If I am denied boarding - I would never ask my dr. for the required letter and don't think he would sign it anyway - I wonder if HAL would refund the FCC. - anyway, two separate topics here I guess - all this remains to be seen. Thanks for letting me put all this out there!

  20. Yeah I go to the webcams to watch the ships sail out but dont post that much. We have actually sailed out from Port Everglades quite a few times. It's awesome to be on board doing it and I love it when the ships whistle blows. I dont care that its loud. We are in the Tampa area (northern part of Pinellas County) so sailing from here can also be impressive cause of going under the Skyway Bridge. Most people dont know it's a suspension bridge and when the sustained winds get above 35MPH (I think) the bridge does get closed and this does happen. When it does it's a really big detour. Sailing from the terminals here too people dont always realize that it takes a while to get out to the bridge. The main shipping channel is narrow and two lanes. In bound and outbound. Once under the bridge it does get wider going by Ft. Desoto park which is a Pinellas County county Park to the north and Egemont Key to the south and there is a active lighthouse there. Then it's about another 45 minutes to a hour to reach the sea buoy to disembark the pilot. We can also have problems with fog at times of the year that can close the shipping channel so it does happen that the ships have to wait out at the Anchorage to get in We have had it happen a couple of times on the old Nieuw Amsterdam and the Veendam. But sailing under the Skyway is gorgeous when she's lit up at night. This bridge it what limits the size of the ships that can get under. For those of us too in our area of Florida yeah the virus is a problem but not like it is in south FL in the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area and the number of new cases is showing signs of going down on a per day basis for Hillsborough county as in Tampa and for us in Pinellas. Let's hope that continues

  22. Not exactly where I should be (QM2 between Walvis Bay and Tenerife) but a look back a year. Last year I celebrated Maundy Thursday at my home church. On Friday I flew to Fort Lauderdale to board the Nieuw Statendam to Amsterdam on Sunday. There was a lad in my church who is now a pastor south of FTL. I had hoped to attend his Good Friday service but got lost on the way. Tonight I am following this year's service online. Roy
  23. Zaandam now seems to be heading to the Stirrup Cay Grand Bahama Anchorage to join Nieuw Statendam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Zuiderdam, Veendam and Volendam.
