  1. We are ending our Scenic river cruise in Amsterdam & planning to remain in Europe for a week before flying home. The Scenic site doesn't list the location of the dock & we are wondering where we'll be getting off? Near Centraal Station? Our plan is to rent a car, so are debating whether its best to get one nearby, or travel to the airport and rent from there? In the States, the rental prices can vary greatly depending on the location of the rental lot.
  2. MS Nieuw Statendam has been in Port Everglades for a few days now. While 2 other ships arrived with her, both Celebrity Edge and Seabourn Odyssey both left earlier this week so now our blue hulled beauty is the only cruise ship in port. She is scheduled to depart at 1700 (5PM Eastern time), subject to change as always. The webcams are at: https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ and https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/ The latest updates on departure time are on the Port Everglades schedule: https://pevvesseltraffic.broward.
  3. Does anyone have feedback on this hotel? Is it a good location for touring? We only have 2 days pre-cruise in September (hopefully) so looking to be someplace centrally located with easy access to public transportation. We are Marriott members looking to use points and this hotel is a Design hotel that’s part of the chain. Thanks.
  4. I booked my first ever cruise a couple of weeks ago. Now i'm going mad and looking at a second cruise lol! A short cruise this time to Amsterdam and Brugge. P&O have a cruise in October 2022 on Britannia which overnights in Amsterdam and Cunard have a cruise on QM2 in December 2022, only one day in Amsterdam on that one but it also calls at Le Havre (thought it might be possible to visit Rouen Christmas market from there). Anyone got any opinions or suggestions that can help me make up my mind? (probably not but people can have fun discussing it lol).
  5. Greetings .... My Husband and I are booked on this Caribbean Cruise ...REALLY looking forward to getting away after being house-bound for so long....anyone joining us?
  6. Tentatively considering a southbound cruise in July 2022. We have a booking out of SF to Europe and we're considering a cruise Anchorage to Vancouver - one way because we want to spend time on land, an Vancouver because I want to revisit - I lived there in the 80s. Given the timing of the cruise we've booked already I'm down to 2 sailings: Majestic Princess 9 Jul Nieuw Amsterdam 10 Jul The only cruise we have ever done was Cunard QE (which is also the ship we have booked ex SF). We chose Cunard because of the dancing - we liked it becuase of the dancing,
  7. After a LONG absence, there's a blue hulled beauty in Fort Lauderdale today. She's very close now and I'll check the departure time later. https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com Roy
  8. I still think the Yuletide river cruise I have booked on Tauck thru Belgium and Holland next December will be a go. When I went to book my hotel in Amsterdam I was surprised at how many hotels had no availability a year out. I've been hoarding my Hilton Honors points like a squirrel hoards nuts, and wanted to stay 3 nights at the Doubletree near the ship docks and across from Centraal Station. I booked another Doubletree across the river (lake? canal?) from Centraal Station. There's a free ferry but I would prefer to be right in the downtown area. I'll keep checking back. From previous e
  9. We are planning to disembark a Celebrity transatlantic cruise in Amsterdam and immediately embark on a Crystal River cruise same day. Any suggestions regarding what activities we can do for the morning while waiting for our river cruise to allow check in, and also keep our luggage secure?
  10. We have never booked air w/ a cruiseline as we have only cruised domestically so far. I just booked UK late June cruise. Air was only $450 each from the Midwest w/ the BOGO promo so it was a no brainer. Only downer is we sure would like to visit the Anne Frank house. Is it typical to be arriving the day of departure & head straight to the ship? (also after the cruise as well). Do they give you options to choose from or are you simply given flights & that is that?
  11. Wondering if anyone could tell me where HAL docks in Amsterdam for their cruises. Will be cruising aboard Rotterdam in August of 2021. Thanks.
  12. We would like to rent one of the cabanas on the Nieuw Amsterdam for one day probably on a port day. I am wondering what the odds are for getting one as I know it cannot be reserved prior to the cruise.
  13. The online TA call center just called me to say that my 15 January 2022 cruise has been canceled. No info. I left a message for my TA to see what is going on.
  14. I have an existing booking on the NA for May 15, 2022 (the first Glacier Discovery Southbound in 2022) -- it's still there in my account. But I was checking on fares today to see if the price had dropped. And ta-dah, the May 15, 2022 sailing is showing as "Not Available". The rest of the season is still on the books, but not the May 15. Curious.
  15. Arriving a short while ago on PTZtv www.portstmaartenwebcam.com Ship is out of sight at the dock now
  16. 🎂🎂 2 years ago today . This lovely blue hulled beauty embarked on her premiere sailing of 14 days across the pond. I wish I could turn back time and start that voyage all over again.
  17. First thanks in advance for any help, secondly I did try to do several searches but got no results. Does cabin 1174 on the Main deck of the N Statendam have floor to ceiling windows? What is the square footage? It sort of looks small on the deck plans. Is it next to a noisy employee area? I’m mostly concerned about banging noises from things being moved around like laundry carts, slamming doors, etc. Thanks again, Erika
  18. Looking at cruises just released for 2022 and trying to decide between the two ships. We have been on the Nieuw Amsterdam for 3 nights during an Alaska/Yukon tour and we really liked her. We have never been on the Noordam. We are looking at either Signature or Neptune suites. I am just interested in people’s opinions and I know we all have differing ones 😃 Thanks
  19. Has anyone heard if the Nieuw Statendam staying in Europe? I seen it only has 1 cruise in April before returning to Northern Europe for the summer.
  20. We are booked on the Nieuw Statendam for a very port intensive Mediterranean cruise next fall where we plan to be off the ship from early morning to right before departure time almost every day in port, but we may want to visit the Thermal Suite 1 or 2 times (most likely on sea days) rather than buying a full cruise pass. Does anyone have any idea of the price for a single day pass? Is it any different for port days vs sea days? Are they hard to come by or pretty easy to get? Thanks in advance for any information! PS - Please leave any discussion about whether or not
  21. I have been wondering if the Amsterdam world cruise passengers ever got their luggage. I tried to follow the luggage, but where I spent the summer rarely had internet. If any one knows could you post? Also I am a bit bummed out that there will be on world cruise blogs this coming January anyone rlse already missing the dailybriefings blogs as the time draws near?
  22. We are considering an aft-wrap Neptune on the Nieuw Statendam (I think the Koningsdam is the same) and am wondering which deck to select from? I and familiar with the aft-wraps on the VIsta class ships, but not on this new class. Which cabins are are largest, inside and balcony, and any other pros/cons.
  23. I know this is a different question but I'm hoping someone can help. We're arriving in Amsterdam next summer and will have 3 days for touring before our cruise. My mom would love to see something of Germany since her family came from there way, way back in the 1800s or so. I see that trains are available for travel between the countries, but I don't know where we should go for a long day of seeing a tiny bit of Germany. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Radbooks
