  1. We cruised HAL in Alaska a few years ago and they gave us blankets and a pair of basic binoculars to use. That was the N.Amsterdam. Does anyone know if these are provided on the N.Statendam? Thanks
  2. We were on the Rotterdam in April and there was containers of lemonade available all day long that you could help yourself to. Can anyone confirm if that's the case on the Nieuw Statendam or if lemonade is only available during set meal times?
  3. I am wondering if afternoon tea is still offered on HAL specifically the NS. I know the royal Dutch tea hasn't been offered in quite some time but my last experience on the Koningsdam, it was at 3 each sea day.
  4. NIEUW STATENDAM – February 24, 2019. 7-Day Western Caribbean Cruise from Fort Lauderdale I’ll start off by confessing I’m not a fan of Holland America, well at least not of their older and smaller ships. I know that is quite contradictory to the legions of diehard HAL fans that love their smaller and more traditional ships. I’m just the opposite. My last cruise on HAL was almost ten years ago on NIEUW AMSTERDAM when she was brand new. It was an ok cruise, but we found nothing truly exceptional and other lines were better suited for us. In fact for this cruise we were originally boo
  5. Haven't sailed HAL for a few years but now looking at the New Statendam later this year.Does anyone have comments on the spa and thermal suite area- price ? good or bad etc. Thanks.
  6. Does the Lido on the Nieuw Statendam have an al fresco dining area?
  7. Hi everyone. Have booked Nieuw Statendam for December 2020 in Cabin 8193 Part of the reason for the location is both my wife and I really enjoy the more aft cabins. We love the motion of the ship and we never sleep so well as when we are being rocked to sleep 🙂 I'm just curious to hear any comments for those who might have sailed in the cabin and possible pictures. Cheers! Warren and Yvonne
  8. Anyone else sailing on NS for the New Year Eve cruise -Dec 29? I didn't see a roll call for it. Our first time on HAL, have sailed many other cruise lines. Wondering if they will do something special for New Years Eve?
  9. We loved our signature on the Eurodam. mostly for the "desk and shelves" set up by the bed. Handy for so much. But the photos I am seeing of same on the Statendam don't seem to include that set up. Can anyone confirm that it's either there or not?
  10. Hi everyone, I've just booked the Nieuw Statendam for next February. It will be my first experience with HAL and I'm really looking forward to it! We've booked Cabin 8080 and I understand that the balcony is slightly bigger and angled because of the location. My question, for anyone who has been on it, is whether the balcony is entirely exposed or is there a combination of shade and sunshine? I usually book cabins on Caribe deck with Princess and those balconies provide both and are larger so I just wondered. Thanks in advance!
  11. Thinking of booking cabin 4166 because of the large balcony. This would be for a 18 day Panama Canal cruise. Any information on noise issues with either of these cabins? Thanks for any info.
  12. We had a wonderful Northern Isles Cruise on the Nieuw Statendam!!! Pre-cruise - We flew United from Pittsburgh to DC and then DC to Amsterdam. We purchased our airfare through HAL and saved almost 50% to what we found on line. Other than a long layover in DC, which we spent in a United lounge, the flights weren’t bad and we arrived in Amsterdam on Friday morning for a Sunday cruise. We stayed at the Kimpton, which we would highly recommend. It is a short (5 minute) walk from the Centraal station (took the train from the airport) and has nightly free wine happy hours.
  13. Just called Holland America to take advantage of an upgrade special for an obstructed veranda and was assigned a handicapped obstructed veranda. When I saw the cabin on the deck plan, I explained I didn't need a handicap room and feared I was keeping it from someone who really needed one. The agent told me for that very reason they usually don't assign these cabins to non-handicapped passengers until it is within 30 days of the cruise, which it is. The cabin, 4096 on Nieuw Statendam, is naturally larger and also looks to have a larger balcony than other veranda cabins and I fee
  14. What are the current night-time activities on the main stage? Any news of things changing before the holidays? thanks!
  15. Nieuw Statendam Review, Land of the Midnight Sun, Departure on 7/7/19 For a little bit of background, we are mid-40’s cruisers that have sailed on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity & Disney with almost 20 cruises under our belt. This was our first Holland America experience and we chose this cruise due to the itinerary to the Artic Circle. We left a few days early so we could have time to enjoy a little bit of Amsterdam before the cruise on Sunday. We arrived into Amsterdam early afternoon and took a cab to our hotel, the Kimpton Dewitt as we did not want to transport

  17. Does anyone have any photos or information about the inside accessible cabins on Nieuw statendam (or Koningsdam since they are the same class of ship) many thanks
  18. Hello. We finally got squared away on a BtoB on this ship and are very pleased. We had sailed on Eurodam previously and liked many things about her (BB Kings, Cabanas, size,etc.). I tried doing searches on VE cabins but could not find any info/ recommendations. We had booked 7111 and I saw subsequently 8013,14,20,23,24 were available. We generally like being higher and to the front of the ship but it would be greatly appreciated to hear any comments. What I gathered from skimming 33 pages of a post on a different site was that some balconies may be narrower, have more obstructed rail
  19. We are boarding her next week and my husband wants to know where mass is held. I am sure it is in the daily newsletter but he wants to be prepared. Thanks for any information you can pass on to us.

  21. Hi. is there music playing on the lido deck either a band or DJ ?
  22. Hi, does anyone know if the tables are the same in the dining room as Koningsdam? I really want to make sure we have a window this time. We didn't have one in Norway and it was really disappointing! I looked on halfacts, they only had Koningsdam. Thanks for any info.
  23. So, I just booked a cruise on the Statendam inside Room and was given room 4032. How noisy will it be... anyone been in this stateroom?
  24. I confess to being a Celebrity "lifer". However, we have booked a transatlantic on the Nieuw Statendam and have a question about the cabin as I can't find any info on line. Cabin number is 5225 which is a category VS aft facing. Does anyone have any info on this cabin? TYIA
