  1. Thank you for the first Daily of winter, Rich. A big salute to our forefathers, and a lot of people are saying humbug this year. I'm more into Sudoku than Crosswords. I certainly resemble the quote but don't eat seafood so I'll pass on the Shrimp. My alternative is Wattleseed Roasted Duck with Apricots and Passion Fruit Pavlova, my final dinner on my 2013 Prinsendam Amazon cruise. Today's care list: Mrs Vmax with radiation looming Caregiver Gsel and her DH battling Alzheimers Sharon’s mon living in a Covid hot spot NextOne DH with Renal Cancer Me and
  2. The ships moving to U.S. waters for eventual resumption of cruising will be Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Westerdam, Zuiderdam, and Noordam. Specific arrival timing and locations are yet to be determined. I wanted to return back to the original press release for a moment and focus on a few key words - EVENTUAL resumption & LOCATIONS are yet to be determined. I think these are key to the puzzle. Eventual could mean April, June, August, October ....... The plan has ALWAYS been a slow, gradual restart over many, many months. It will take most lines a
  3. today is Christmas Card Day, National Pastry Day, and International Anti-Corruption Day Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.

  4. We had a 21 day cruise scheduled on Nieuw Statendam beginning January 6, 2021. We have not received anything yet so it doesn't sound like they are going in order by the sail date. I guess I am going to have to call Holland America.
  5. A belated update..... the episode on Diamond Princess was not very enjoyable. But, we have just watched episode 4 - Nieuw Statendam! Excellent viewing, only let down by some poor editing. It was great to watch her leaving Port Everglades under the watchful eye of Capt. Sybe de Boer for her inaugural Caribbean season (February 2019?). She visits St Thomas, San Juan and HMC. The island (HMC) looks stunning on the TV. To be honest, we have watched it twice already and might have repeat viewing tonight!
  6. We also have ships in the Caribbean. Nieuw Statendam is scheduled to be in Port Everglades next Sunday.
  7. It wll be good to see the Nieuw Statendam in Ft. Lauderdale.
  8. Thank you for today's daily, Rich. I'll pass on the Sangria, lots of football games today (Best luck to Ravens), and more on the other day later. The meal and the quote both sound nice,. My alternative is Chilled Indian Lassi Soup, Chicken Breast with Prosciutto, Mozzarella, and Basil leaves, and Master Chef Sundae, as served on MS Prinsendam December 20, 2013, Today's care list: Mrs Vmax with radiation looming Caregiver Gsel and her DH battling Alzheimers Sharon’s mon living in a Covid hot spot NextOne DH with Renal Cancer bennybear’s US Relatives wi

  10. Forgive me if this has been covered. I did a search and read a lot of lido cabana threads, but nothing answered my question. We just booked one for our Alaskan cruise next year. I did read that some felt it was best not to be too close to the end where the Dive In is located. I booked the St. Tropez, which is the last cabana on the other end. Is there a reason that being on the end there will be less desirable than being in one of the center cabanas? My thought was that with only having "neighbors" on one side, it might be quieter, but I guess that's really dependent upon what
  11. Agreed. I checked my stats on my Nieuw Statendam transatlantic and it was 15 laps for 5 miles., Roy
  12. Good morning and thanks for the update. It’s a cold and sunny day here but not snowing. Supposed to warm up next week. I just looked at the PE schedule and *****Nieuw Statendam is listed for December 27 and January 15. Hopefully it’s true 🙏 Blessings and prayers to all on our lists.
  13. I booked an 11-night on Nieuw Statendam for March 2022 a few weeks ago, but used two already - owned FCC's (at just $100 each) for the deposit. Have it All promo, so drinks, gratuities, speciality dining, internet credit...plus the on board credit attached to our FCC's. Oh...and casino rate too, so a really nice deal in and of itself. Got this email yesterday, and while having another $250 of OBC is nothing to frown at I am not biting. The only reason this cruise got booked is that it didn't require any more money out of my pocket than the FCC I bought two years ago
  14. Pearl Harbor Day today is International Civil Aviation Day, Letter Writing Day, and National Cotton Candy Day On Monday mornings I am dedicated to the proposition that all men are created jerks. -- H.

  15. I just booked a Neptune guarantee on the Nieuw Statendam (sister ship to Koningsdam) and was wondering about the 4 Neptune cabins that are far forward on decks 10 and 11. Has anyone stayed in these and if so, how did you like them?

  17. For me it’s a definite Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam my first 2 and must say really enjoyed the Massdam but still far from my top 2. sea ya Eric
  18. Hello, I have been looking at a cruse on the Nieuw Statendam for next spring and I am a bit puzzled. What is the difference between a veranda cabin and a vista suite. I see that the veranda has the living area next to the patio and the VS has the bed next to it. Really would like to know what is different before I book. Also if anyone has stayed in a VS what are your thoughts. Thanks
  19. Of the current ships in the fleet, the Volendam and Zaandam are my favorites. Why? Excellent and special (for me) cruise experiences, the floral decor theme of the Volendam and the music decor theme for the Zaandam appeal to me, a ship size that is easy to navigate and get from place to place, and both are very sea worthy having sailed on both when King Neptune was very upset. It will be impossible to replace Rotterdam V in my memory as the best ship on which I have sailed. Prinsendam made a very indelible impression on my memory and is a favorite in her own unique way.
  20. This sums up how I feel too. Before HAL had the Pinnacle class, my favorite ships were in the R class (the old Rotterdam specifically). But now after we've sailed many days on the NS and the K, I can't imagine going back to R class ships because we love the extra dining choices and entertainment. I do miss the promenade deck of the smaller ships, but that's pretty much the only thing. Right now the Nieuw Statendam is my favorite ship, over the Koningsdam (although I like that ship a lot) because they fixed a few things (such as the poorly angled toilet). 😉
  21. We loved the Rotterdam & Amsterdam (R-Class), but they have left the fleet. Had a terrific time on every HAL ship, but they were special. Sadly, we never got on the Prisendam 😞. We loved the more intimate experience on the older, smaller ships. So, it was with some trepidation that we booked the Koningsdam (Pinnacle Class) for a B2B (Transatlantic & Adriatic). We were blown away. The dining choices are terrific. But the entertainment really was a game-changer. The Lincoln Center/Rolling Stone/BB Kings combination is outstanding. And there are other terrific venues too. We w
  22. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 2nd, 2020 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anni
  23. I agree with Ruth, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised also. The longest I've spent on one ship was 39 days on the Nieuw Statendam, then the next day boarded the Koningsdam for another 26 days. I could have stayed longer, and it really didn't seem that long.
  24. today is National Blue Jeans Day, Repeal Day - The 21st Amendment ends Prohibition, and International Volunteer Day "I haven't lost my mind; I know exactly where I left it." Meal suggestion for today - Turkey Casserold Drink of the Day - Boozy Grinch Punch Wine of the day - Dr Heidemanns Riesling Qba vintage at Sea Atlantic Nieuw Statendam destination Sint Eustatius eta 12/11 Westerdam destination Sint Eustatius eta 12/13 at Sea Pacific Koningsdam destination Puerto Vallarta eta 12/11 at Sea Caribbean Oosterdam destination Caraca
