  1. We're looking at the Nieuw Statendam's verandah staterooms on deck 4 (VH) that are described as obstructed or partially obstructed view. The price is very attractive but for someone who loves to spend time on her cruise ship balcony, I'd like to know what that obstruction looks like. Hoping someone has photos or just an experience with one of these staterooms.Thanks in advance for your help. Really having trouble deciding!

  3. Are the movies shown on the big poolside screen also available on your stateroom TV?
  4. Last year, we traveled on the Nieuw Amsterdam and booked in part because we are big Scott Bradlee fans and were excited to see their shipboard show. The agent who made our reservation assured us they would be on the Nieuw Amsterdam. She was wrong, but we had a great time and booked the same ship for this year’s winter getaway. Subsequently we’ve read that SBPMJ will be rotating through HAL ships. Does anyone know if they are on the Nieuw Amsterdam in February? Thanks!
  5. Zuiderdam will be at pier 26 (port to) from 0530-1700. She is doing a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise.

  6. Just got the email from HAL. Our 14 day back to back March 8th on the Nieuw Statendam is canceled. They’re offering us $75 per person ( veranda) to rebook on a different date in March. Glad I bought travel insurance. I had all my flights and hotels set up. Maybe they have a charter?
  7. I will be sailing on the Nieuw Statendam soon and was wondering how the new arrangement for Lincoln Center Stage is in the Queen's Lounge on this ship rather than the dedicated space on the Koningsdam. It would seem to be a much less intimate. Do they set up chairs theater style? Is it now a quartet rather than a quintet? I read that somewhere and I was wondering if that was an error. Hope so! Needless to say, for me this is one of the highlights of my cruise.
  8. Hello fellow cruisers! We recently returned from a 7-night voyage on the Nieuw Statendam, and I thought I would try and write a little photo review to share with you! Just testing this photo...More to come!
  9. Who can remember or knows what penny slot machines are on Nieuw Statendam ...the more the merrier thank you
  10. Booked for a Nov 2020 10 day Nieuw Statendam cruise and after reviewing HAL's site, it sounds like the typical crew-performed main theater shows we're accustomed to on the Vista-class boats aren't what's going to be on-board the NS. Several things NOT mentioned on HAL's site are comedy, magic, and the Indonesian culture-themed crew shows. Site seems to emphasize only classical music and ballroom dancing type shows? Has anyone sailed her recently that could shed any light on this? I'm fine with classical music and ballroom dancing, but the DW is NOT going to be thrilled with that type of show.
  11. I will be flying to Fort Lauderdale Good Friday to board the Nieuw Statendam on Easter Sunday. Two weeks later the Nieuw Statendam will have her first visit to her home country and I will be on board. Sadly, that will be a bittersweet moment for me as I will both enjoy the moment but also the sadness of disembarking. Come along with me on this journey. It will be typical of my cruise reports and I’ll have menus and When and Where posted as well as likely additional photos on my companion blog: http://getawaysfrom21044.wordpress.com. While I do fly I don’t like it.
  12. Hi all, We are currently booked on the Nieuw Statendam March 15, 2020 cruise. This will be our first time sailing with Holland America. I had been checking the Holland America website to see if there were any pricing changes. As of the beginning of last week, there were still a lot of cabins available, however, at the end of the week, there were no cabins available. The sailing has now been removed from their website. I called Holland America and was advised that it is not sold out, however, they are in process of modifying something. They weren’t able to say what
  13. Hi all! I recently sailed the Nieuw Statendam for 21 nights from June 30th to July 21st on the Voyage of the Midnight Sun in Norway. I figured since I was on HAL's newest ship for a significant amount of time, I'd write up a review. Overall, it was a great experience, and I wouldn't hesitate to sail this ship again! Embarkation: Seriously the easiest embarkation I've ever had! From the time our cab dropped us off to the port until we were in our stateroom was under a half an hour. They've got it down pat at the Amsterdam Cruise Terminal! Food: Being on t
  14. I was looking at the deck plans for the Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, and did not see the Lido Cabanas, Did they do away with them?
  15. For anyone who is considering a Niew Statendam aft verandah Neptune Suite, my husband, son and I just returned for a seven day Holiday cruise to Aruba and Curaçao (Dec 22-29). We booked Deck 6 (Mozart) room 6210 which is port aft corner Neptune suite. Loved it! We've stayed in a similar suite on Eurodam and much preferred this brand new ship, with a few exceptions. Main draw for us -- huge balcony. The balcony wraps along the entire aft and port sides of the room. It really felt like we had a little piece of the ship all to ourselves. It was furnished with a round table with
  16. Just wondering if anyone has stayed in this cabin or one like it. It has the angled balcony which looks like it might be slightly larger than some and the cabin looks a little bit longer. Trying to decide between this and one in the same V category with the obviously larger balcony. Not sure if there's much difference in cabin size, and if not, would rather have the larger balcony on the other one. Thanks!
  17. Still working on our review of our first trip on HAL, but wanted to share a link to pictures of MDR menus and food here. I know food is subjective, but we really enjoyed most of our meals.
  18. Seven ships in port today with a possibility of 19,000 passengers debarking and an equal number embarking (glad I am not going to be at the FLL airport!). Eurodam will be at pier 19 (starboard to) from 0545-1700. She will be doing an 11-day Panama Canal Sunfarer cruise. Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (05 Jan 0800-1500); Oranjestad, Aruba (07 Jan 1300-2300); Willemstad, Curacao (08 Jan 0800-2300); Cartagena, Colombia (10 Jan 0700-1300); Panama Canal (Cruising Canal) (11 Jan 0500-0500); Colon, Panama (11 Jan 1500-2000); Puerto Limon, Costa Rica (12 Jan 0730-1700); Fo
  19. On the Konsingdam and Nieuw Statendam there are 2 staterooms Cat VH on deck 4 forward (on either side of the ship) that have a "sideways" balcony. The staterooms are life boat obstructed but apparently the size of these balconies are huge --- equivalent to a suite. The door the balcony is on the side of the cabin rather than being at the back and where the balcony would be on a normal stateroom is a big oceanview style window. Anyone have pictures of these rooms or stayed in them? My parents are booked in 4042 on Nieuw Statendam (https://www.icruise.com/deckplans/holland-americ
  20. Anyone have any info on how the repairs on the Nieuw Amsterdam are going? TIA
  21. We are onboard the Nieuw Amsterdam for today’s sailing. The captain just announced that due to a technical issue we won’t be leaving on time. No ETA on sailing currently. Assuming worst case, what is the Standard Operating Procedure in this case?
  22. Been off the boards a few weeks, and last I had read, the NA was in shipyard having one of the engines fixed, and a cruise was cancelled. Is she back in the water and ok these days? we have a mid march cruise coming up
  23. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at pier 21 (starboard to) from 0545-1700. She is headed out on a 7-day western Caribbean cruise. Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (01 Dec 0800-1600); Falmouth, Jamaica (03 Dec 0800-1700); George Town, Grand Cayman (04 Dec 0800-1600); Key West, Florida (06 Dec 0700-1700); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (07 Dec a0700) Zuiderdam is headed to Freeport for a drydock. She will be at pier 26 (port to) from 0500-1600 but as we all know, ships leaving for drydock do not always leave as scheduled. Also in port are Caribbean Princess at pier 2 from 05
  24. I know there are retreat cabanas. The teens liked the ones by the pool on our last cruise on NA
