  1. We usually sail during the Holiday season but this year are waiting until January 5th 2020. In seventeen cruises, we have never experienced a ship without Christmas decorations. Kinda looking forward to enjoying the Nieuw Statendam's elegant beauty without extra adornment. Can we expect that she will have been de-decorated by the time we board her?
  2. I understand that what is left of the library is now in the Crow's Nest. Are there any computers that passengers can use?
  3. 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 eve
  4. Had dinner with a group of five people at the Caneletto. 2 people were two stars. Two were 4 stars, and I am five stars. My four star friends paid the bill thinking it would be 9.50 pp. 50% discount from 19. Caneletto billed him the whole bill, but each meal was billed at the legitimate discount rate. Two at full price. Three at 50%. He was a little disappointed ,but I am glad they are checking. I have read posts where it was said who ever pays the bill gets their discount on the whole tab.
  5. Taking the Thanksgiving cruise next week on the NS. I am also trying to get a little Christmas shopping done. If anyone has been on the NS recently, do you know if they sell Garmin or Fitbit fitness trackers in the watch shop, or other shop onboard? Any opinion as to whether they are any kind of a deal would also be appreciated. I know that it's probably same or cheaper to buy online, but if it's close and I can talk to a human, that's a benefit. Recent physical limitations prevent me from doing alot of brick and mortar shopping this year. Will appreciate it!
  6. Please note: We have now left North American time zones and in a few days will cross the International Date Line which means the sail-away threads will likely be posted at strange times. Please check the second or third page just in case the thread has slipped down. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at pier 26 (port to) from 0530-1700. She will be doing a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise. Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (23 Feb 0800-1600); Falmouth, Jamaica (25 Feb 0800-1700); George Town, Grand Cayman (26 Feb 0800-1600); Cozumel, Mexico (27 Feb 1100-2300); Fort Lauderdale,
  7. 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!
  8. Booking an Oceanview cabin on this transatlantic cruise. Some cabins are located on the Main Deck right below the Lower Promenade deck which has a lot of activity. Does the lower promenade activity disturb the cabins below it? We are light sleepers. Also, if we decide to go with a Balcony/Verandah cabin, are there any problems with smoking, vaping, or any other substance next door? I know that smoking is not allowed with exception of smoking areas. But, you know how people can be. Just need to know how well it is enforced on this ship? Thank you in advance for info provided. 🛳️
  9. Where does the New Statendam dock in Key West?
  10. I love Italian food more than any other cuisine. I visited Italy many times in each of the regions. My sister in law loves it too. I always said I wanted to eat my way through Italy! Anyone been there? Had a favorite dish?
  11. For those of you used to watching the sail-aways out of Ft. Lauderdale/Port Everglades, HAL's Veendam will be making a rare appearance today, Saturday, March 28, 2020 in order to take on fuel, water and some stores, as well as a small bit of crew turnover. She is due in at 0530 hrs and going to berth 19. Prelim departure is scheduled for 9:00 PM One hour later at 0630 hrs, HAL's Nieuw Amsterdam is scheduled in Port Everglades for the same purpose, and is assigned her routine berth 26. Prelim departure is scheduled for 4:00 PM - You've got to watch Nieuw A's departure f
  12. NIEUW STATENDAM,the newest ship of Holland America ,makes her maiden arrival at Piraeus Port
  13. Hello All, I'm back again for advice for those of you that know the Nieuw Statendam. I am currently booked in a Spa OV on a February trip to the Caribbean. I just noticed that the Save on Sunshine package for the month of October adds the SBP (although a non-refundable fare). The Spa OV cabins are sold out. Can you recommend OV cabins that you like? I would be most interested in not having a cabin above or below busy public spaces. Thank you, BaltimoreCruise
  14. We have 4 couples traveling in January. Are there tables for 8 in the dining room?
  15. What times are the early and late seatings in the main dining room on the Nieuw Statendam? Thanks
  16. Holland America's newest and largest ship arrived here in Santorini this morning along with Celebrity's Edge, silver seas's wind and Crystal Serenity. Pretty rich company, but we are holding our heads high. Just finished the donkey trail walk to the top, so resting and posting.
  17. G'day from down under! I am posting this early because I expect to be out all day walking around Sydney. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She is doing a 7-day JoCo Cruise. Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (08 Mar); Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (10 Mar); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (12 Mar); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (14 Mar) Also in port are Sky Princess at pier 2 from 0500-1600, Island Princess at pier 21 from 0400-1600, Celebrity Equinox at pier 25 from 0600-1530, Carnival Sunrise at pier 4 from 0545-1600, and I
  18. For our next cruise, I am looking at midship balconies on the Nieuw Statendam. I have found that my motion sickness is mitigated by having the foot of the bed nearest to the ship's bow so that when I sit up in bed I am facing forward. Is there any way to determine the bed placement in specific staterooms?
  19. I am not a frequent HAL cruiser. Are the internet prices better once you are on board rather than on the HAL website in advance? I will be doing a 7 day Caribbean cruise from FLL.
  20. I've read some posts on Cruise Critic asking about vegan and vegetarian options on cruise ships. I've sailed on several cruises following a vegan diet, and aside from an entirely vegan cruise, HAL has a fabulous vegan menu! There are also so many vegan options all over the ship, whether it's naturally plant-based or you just need to remove a couple of ingredients here or there. I've written all about everything that I ate for my 7 days on Nieuw Statendam at my blog here: https://justinpluslauren.com/holland-america-vegan-guide/ I'll post the images of the vegan/vegeta
  21. I have heard so much about the artwork throughout the Statendam. Is there some sort of self-guided tour available?
  22. Has anyone stayed in this cabin? Looks like a larger obstructive balcony with some ocean view.
  23. Just back from a Cruise through the Fjords of Norway on board the Nieuw Statendam. A few thoughts: Embarkation: A rather long wait- but that might be because we picked a peek time – all in all well handled from HAL Ship: The Nieuw Statendam is just no our ship- to dark – to loud in some places. No deckchairs on the promenade deck- not even in some places. The wrap around pormmenade deck is nice - but the view blockes from the lifeboats. The most irritating part is the Lido – Buffet- Restaurant. The chairs and tables are by the windows- the style of said
  24. Any suggestions? Will be on a 7 night cruise. It's possible our 1 year old will be with us although I may be able to get babysitting from other family members on one or two nights when we try specialty dining. I've never sailed with HAL before. I watched some videos online and think I want to try the Asian place (Tamarind) and Pinnacle Grill. Not sure about the Italian place as I see it gets mixed reviews. Will we get dirty looks if we bring our kid with us? Any other complimentary food items specific to HAL that I should make sure I try/don't miss out on? The b
  25. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at pier 26(starboard to) from 0545-1700. She is doing a 7-day Tropical Caribbean cruise.
