  1. Hi has anyone stayed in this cabin. We had another cabin booked but had to change to a triple room as my son decided to come with us. Thanks
  2. 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. 🛳️
  3. 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?

  5. Hello all, My parents (late 70s) will be traveling on the Nieuw Amsterdam in a few weeks. Does anyone have recent Caribbean dailies (the voyages with St Thomas & San Juan)? How was the entertainment? Were there any lectures / learning on board? Thanks for any insight / advice / feedback!
  6. 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?
  7. We have 4 couples traveling in January. Are there tables for 8 in the dining room?
  8. Anyone out there have pictures of this suite? I've heard conflicting stories about the aft suites being smaller or having weird furniture arrangements. I guess pictures of any of the other decks aft Neptune suites would also answer this question. Thanks!
  9. I've read about some changes in the entertainment on HAL. Is is safe to say that there will be some show taking place in the main theater each evening at 8 & 10 when we are on the NA in a few weeks?
  10. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0545-1700. She is embarking on a 7-day Tropical Caribbean cruise.

  11. My husband and I will be cruising on May 10 on the Western Mediterranean. Does anyone have any recommendations for excursions at any of the ports?
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. DH wants to bring a 6 pack of Pepsi on our next cruise, which is on HAL Nieuw Amsterdam. As we understand it, they do not carry Pepsi, only Coke products. Does anyone know if this is allowed? Thanks.
  15. 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.
  16. Nieuw Amsterdam will be making her first visit to FLL this season and will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0530-1700. She is doing a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise.

Zaandam will be in Aruba from 0800-2300. https://www.portaruba
  17. We're looking to book Nieuw Statendam for a Caribbean cruise in March 2020. The best inside cabin we can get is an aft cabin on the 4th (Bethoven) deck (4192). Is there much vibration or engine noise in this area? The cabin is above the dining room, but away from the galley. Have always booked mid-ship so no experience with aft cabins. Any comments would be appreciated.
  18. Is anyone familiar with this suite? It's one of the last available and we weren't sure about it's aft location. The concern is noise from above or below, ease of getting on/off for excursions. Thanks!
  19. The Nieuw Statendam is such a beautiful, new cruise ship, and I took a ton of photos when I was on board. If you're planning to sail on this ship in the future and want a sneak peak, I've got a photo tour featuring my verandah cabin and all the public spaces on the ship! If you're missing the ship or counting down the days until your next cruise (aren't we all!), maybe this will help fuel your wanderlust for cruising and bring back some great memories!

  20. Haven’t been in HAL in many years and I’m looking to try again and would appreciate any feedback. Our one and only HAL cruise was 9 years ago on the Maasdam. 14 days with the most amazing Caribbean itinerary. But we were bored on the ship. Best entertainment was the crew show. We really enjoyed that. Rest of the entertainment was a xylophone player and a violinist. Not our cup of tea. We've mostly sailed Princess, but it seems that with the new ships, the ship is the destination, Not the itinerary. Don’t get me wrong, the ship is very important, as is the itinerary. Quite fr
  21. I am now booked on a HAL( came back from Princess) cruise sailing on the beautiful Nieuw Amsterdam. I booked a balcony cabin on deck 5, next to the elevator. I have been in a cabin like this before, but it was a while ago, and I don't remember. I would like to know how much of a view do you get from the elevator into my cabin. I not worried about the balcony view, just the cabin. Thank you
  22. 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
  23. NIEUW STATENDAM,the newest ship of Holland America ,makes her maiden arrival at Piraeus Port
  24. 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.
  25. Has anyone stayed in these cabins? We have a guaranteed F category . They are at the back of the ship. Worried about noise problems. Thanks.
