  1. I assume that they dim the lights for the movies. Has anyone looked up to see the stars? Can you see stars? I tried to stargaze on other cruises, but there was always to many lights on the ship...
  2. Hello, I’m looking into a family cruise to Alaska on the Nieuw Amsterdam. I was hoping someone could provide guidance on food choices at the Lido buffet, as I’d like to see whether it will work for one of my kids. My son has sensory issues and prefers very simple food with few ingredients - for example, if he eats pasta it is plain or with cheese, no sauce or other ingredients mixed in. I’ve looked at kids menus for the main dining room and can see that there are several items that will work for him, but I’m sure that on some nights we won’t feel like sitting through a formal dinner. Are there any basic picky eater-friendly menu items that are consistently served at the buffet? For example, if there is a made to order pasta or sandwich station, that would work. Thank you in advance!
  3. We are planning on going on the Niuew Statendam this March and know that the Koningsdam has a problem with smoke wafting into the Music Walk. I'm quite sensitive to smoke so it'd be nice if this isn't a problem. Does anyone (especially people onboard right now) know if HAL solved this issue on the NS?

  6. Hi - Does anyone know if the Verandah cabins on the Nieuw Amsterdam (Rotterdam Deck) have an accessible HDMI port on the TVs? I assume there is one on the back - but is there one along the side that we'll be able to use? Thanks! :)
  7. We are going on a mexican cruise druring spring break, I see lots of posts about other ships. We were on the Veendam last Easter. What kind of differences will we experience? We have 2 teens coming too.
  8. Does anyone know anything about this? I saw it listed on the deck plans. Was wondering if it has an upcharge?

  11. The three weeks we had to prepare for this cruise are almost over so I am running out of research time. Please forgive me for asking something that has been discussed several times before. I promise a trip report when I return for all the help everyone has given me. Can't begin to tell you how excited we are to travel with HAL. 1) Wine Package - I was ready to do a six bottle wine package in the lower price level and then looked at some of the possible options. It looks like I am paying $30+ for a $6.00 bottle of wine. I don't think I can swallow that, literally. So, I will bring the two allowed bottles and am thinking about bringing some additional ones that I enjoy and pay the corkage fee. How does this happen during check-in? Do you put the wine in a small roll on bag and just tell them to charge the you corking fee? Does this confuse things in the dining room when you come carrying your own wine? I am not sure about any wine being available at the ports we are visiting but if so, could we pick that up and pay corking fee? 2) Tours - I was thinking about booking a jeep tour with ABC (seem to be #1) but then ran across the toursbylocals website. Anyone use those? They offer a half day private tour for $180. We really want to explore Aruba to decide if we would like to plan a family trip there, so a private tour would help accomplish this. Looked at car rentals but did not find a place that had good reviews. I did reserve a car in Curacao with Advanced Car Rentals. Good reviews but it seems odd to hand someone $75 and then drive off in their car. 3) Disembarkation - My hubbie was excited to see the option of sending the luggage straight to the airport from the ship. Has anyone used this feature? Looks to be $19.95 per person. Do we need to book a ride to the airport? Flight is not until 2:45. We are driving down from VA in a rental and flying back. I did not want the stress of flying even the day before after our last flying disaster that caused to lose two days on a trip to Kauai. Govt. shutdown sealed the deal.
  12. Instead of stuff this year for Christmas, we gave the kids a cruise March23-31. This will be our second HAL cruise. We booked a lido deck cabana, we figured the teens would rather be near the pool then up in the retreat, I have book the laundry package ( to save clothes everywhere) we have the SBP and we ordered the quench package for the teens. Prepaid the gratuities booked dinner at each specialty restaurant. The ports we are going to are ones we go to when we go and stay in Mexico, so the kids are not into excursions there, they rather explore the city a bit then have the ship to themselves. So have I missed anything?
  13. Arriving for her very first time! Welcome !!

  15. But whom? Captain Albert in his Blog several days ago indicated that one of the original Masters of the Koningsdam was currently stationed at the simulator/training center for Officers in the Netherlands and the other gentleman was at the shipyard in Italy. I presume this gentleman will be the Nieuw Statendam's Master. But, who is this gentleman? Captain de Vries was the take out Master of the Koningsdam. Will he join Captain Edward G. Van Zanne, as a present day HAL Master, who has had the "joy" of bringing a new ship "to life" for Holland America Line?
  16. We'll navigate on Nieuw Statendam begining december 30 and because it has not had its inaugural trip, so far I've researched all the information about the Koningsdam asuming it's identical to Nieuw Statendam. Do you know if that's accurate? Are there in facts differences in the configuration of the ships, public spaces or cabins?
  17. does anyone know how many formal nights there are on the 12 day cruise. Thank you
  18. I have a question about the major difference between 2 ships. Have been on the Nieuw Amsterdam and the Eurodam and love the size and feel of those ships very much. We are considering a Hawaiian cruise on the Oosterdam but I am not sure if we would like the ship as much as the Eurodam or N.A. Can someone please give me a comparison feel of the ships. Are the VC category cabins the same decor/feel? Is the Oosterdam still in great shape as I think the last refurbishing was in 2007? Any other details are more than appreciated. Thanks so much!
  19. Are all the after balconies (not wrap-arounds) the same size? This has probably been asked before, so if someone could direct me to a thread, that would be helpful. And are the middle aft cabins larger? Thanks!
  20. Another nice day in port with a bit mix of ships and luckily we have two blue hulled beauties in Port Everglades today and another in Tampa.

  21. We are sailing soon on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Two members of our group take a refrigerated medication at bedtime. I have had a few emails with HAL general customer service and Access & Compliance and have been told that the refrigerators in cabins are not meant for medication. However, we are welcome to keep our medications in the medical center. The issue is that these medications need to be taken at bedtime and the medical center is not open in the later evening. I am told that if we need to access our medication at a time when the clinic is not open, there will be a $35.00 fee to have the nurse open the medical center. Does anyone else have experience with this? We are trying to think of ways to possibly save the $245 total fee that this would cost over seven days. Maybe we can keep a cooler in our cabin and keep the medication cold with ice packs that we keep frozen in the medical center freezer? And have two sets of ice packs to rotate as needed? Any other ideas? Thank you!
  22. With the new TVs post dry dock are the HDMI ports accessible if I wanted to hookup a laptop?

  24. Seasoned cruisers new to HAL. Looking to book a 7 night on Nieuw Amsterdam. Have 2 questions for anyone who has recently sailed on her. I already tried searching the boards but didn’t come up with answers specific to this ship. 1- how fast is the WIFI onboard and what was the cost for unlimited access? 2- are there any cabanas overlooking a pool area? Specifically want to keep an eye on my teens, but don’t need to be right there with them the whole time. Thank you you in advance for any insights!
