  6. I was offered Club Orange on the Nieuw Statendam for $15 and accepted it just to see and report here on its value. It included a private "Behind the Scenes" kitchen tour that was more extensive than the kitchen portion of the "Behind the Scenes" tour costing $99. The tote bag was very good and the suite-level Room Service Breakfast was a nice upgrade.if you like mimosas and steak. Due to the lack of tables in the Club Orange dining area, I was seated at a community table on several occasions and decided not to be on a waiting list on two occasions. Club Orange adds an extra dinner entree

  10. Our favorite Prinsendam followed by Massdam, Statendam, Ryndam and Amsterdam. All gone now. Never sailed on Volendam but will be sailing on her next Jan 22 Grand S.A. And Antarctica.
  11. From Crew Center website... Nov 18 Holland America Line is getting ready for a big comeback in the United States. In a letter sent to the employees, Holland America Line President Gus Antorcha said that after CDC issued a framework for conditional sailing, which allows eventual resumption of cruising, the company will deploy six ships in the U.S. waters in the coming weeks. "Following in-depth discussions with the CDC, other government agencies, and medical and science authorities, we have decided to start moving six Holland America Line ships toward U.S. waters over the next

  13. This news release just came out today (Sept. 10, 2020) - hopefully good news for future cruises: SEATTLE, Sept. 10, 2020 /CNW/ -- From Greenland to Greece and Iceland to Israel, five Holland America Line ships are set to explore the cultural kaleidoscope of Europe in 2021. The brand's collection of vessels crossing the pond includes Rotterdam, which is slated to debut at the height of the summer Europe season. Joining the fleet's new flagship will be Nieuw Statendam, Westerdam and Zuiderdam, putting two Pinnacle Class ships in the region. Zaandam heads to Europe on the popular "Voy

  15. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 18th, 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 a
  16. Another thought related to Nieuw Statendam and Westerdam specifically. HAL employ a large number of entertainers from the US/Canada who face difficult travel restrictions if traveling to Europe. They also have a decent number of cruise staff from North America. Could they be collecting staff/entertainers from the US to then sail without passengers to Europe? This would fit in with the model of collecting service staff from places like the Philippines and Indonesia then sailing to the ports/regions where they intend to restart service from. Basically the reverse of what happened earlier this

  19. Congratulations! Good choice on the Nieuw Statendam. We spent 20 days in the Med on her last year and really enjoyed all of the amenities she offers. I am sure you will too!
  20. We got married in March of this year. Bad timing on our part, eh ? As a result, our honeymoon was cancelled, the reception was cancelled, and the wedding was held on a boat that holds eight..and it wasn’t full. BUT, yesterday we booked a cruise on the Nieuw Statendam in September of next year. Here’s hoping the light at the end of this tunnel isn’t another train :).
  21. Good morning and thanks for the update. Its a cold and sunny day here in SE PA. Supposed to get rain on Saturday. Two years ago today, I flew to Rome for 1 night precruise stay before boarding the Nieuw Statendam on her premiere voyage. Hard to believe it was 2 years ago. It was a great crossing with many CC friends onboard. Blessings and prayers to all on our lists. @rafinmdneed to add rjbean4 to our prayer list. She posted on another thread of losing her Mom in October.
  22. Having only 3 HAL sailings (with about 40 total), I certainly can't say I have a favorite! First was RT Hawaii on Zaandam. Loved it! Next was partial Panama Canal on Zuiderdam and also loved it, especially my great J inside cabin. So big for a solo! Then, on to K'dam just after she came to the states. Thought it was fantastic. Beautiful ship, great entertainment (and that was before she got the Rolling Stone venue), good food and service, of course. Had booked Zaandam again for this past April for her repo from FLL to Montreal. So sad that was cancelled. Re-boo
  23. Rich thanks for the DAILY Fleet report. Roy indicates the Nieuw Ststendam id coming to Port Everglades. I would love to see that. Enjoy the last moments of fall as Winter is about to approach.
  24. Same here. And I hadn't seen this thread yesterday, so I was happily surprised to see on my DVR this morning that a new episode of MCS had been recorded. We were supposed to sail on the Nieuw Statendam in January; I guess this will have to do for now.
