  5. We are lucky enough to have several ships ‘resting’ in 2 of our local bays at the moment. By far the 2 prettiest are Zaandam and Volendam, Nieuw Statendam actually looks surprising good despite the extra decks above the bridge. The Emerald Princess, the Azura and the Ventura ( sisterships for different operators) have to be some of the uglier ships afloat. QM2 is in a class of its own - a true Atlantic liner. Queen Victoria and Arcadia at least look like ships!
  6. We are looking forward to trying it out on the Nieuw Statendam on our next cruise. Like the idea of a separate area which should be much quieter.
  7. Has anyone heard if the Nieuw Statendam staying in Europe? I seen it only has 1 cruise in April before returning to Northern Europe for the summer.
  8. Here is the latest update of the Dry Docks, Charters and Groups Onboard file. The charters and group sailings organisations have been slowly updating their plans, so the information listed here may change over the coming months. The information on the HAL website is sometimes contradictory to the information posted by charter organisations (i.e. some dates which are shown as charters on the organiser's website is still available to book on the HAL website). Also, some Charters/Groups have posted their schedules, however HAL have not posted theirs (eg Nieuw Amsterdam, Caribbean Winter
  9. Looking at cruises just released for 2022 and trying to decide between the two ships. We have been on the Nieuw Amsterdam for 3 nights during an Alaska/Yukon tour and we really liked her. We have never been on the Noordam. We are looking at either Signature or Neptune suites. I am just interested in people’s opinions and I know we all have differing ones 😃 Thanks

  12. HAL cancelled my back to back cruises last week that I had scheduled for April 2021. They were on Nieuw Amsterdam in the Caribbean then through the Panama Canal. They were two seven day cruises then a 15 day cruise. All cancelled. ~Nancy

  14. Please assist us we re-booked our 50th anniversary from last May to this May 12th to 23rd First to Fairbanks then to Denali then to ship at Whittier and cruise to Vancouver---do you really smart and seasoned cruisers ---think this might still happen? The ship is the Nieuw Amsterdam---really can't yet decide about buying plane tickets from Atlanta to Fairbanks---I am really in the dark about this entire trip--just hoping if this is our last one that it turns out OK--We are in mid 70's pretty good health--any all help would be greatly appreciated--thank you in advance--
  15. I was booked on the Nieuw Amsterdam from Ft. Lauderdale to San Francisco in April 2021 and HMC was not on the itinerary. The first port was Cartagena, Columbia. ~Nancy

  18. 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
  19. Nieuw Statendam Sea Trials commenced August 10, 2018. So, Float Out to Sea Trials was 8 months and Sea Trials to Inaugural Voyage was 4 months. Koningsdam Float Out was March 2015, Sea Trials January 2016, Maiden Voyage April 2016. All I am saying is that 8 months for a fit out seems very short, taking into consideration the problems that may have been caused by Covid in Italy. I would be 50/50 on a delay to that August sail date. I truly hope I am wrong!
  20. I just looked back at Nieuw Statendam schedule and NSD was 'Floated Out' in December 2017 and had her inaugural voyage in December 2018. That is 12 months later. Rotterdam was 'Floated Out' in October 2020 and they expect the 'Premier Voyage to depart August 2021! That is only 8 months for the fitout. Hopefully Capt Albert will restart his blog and keep us updated.

  23. 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
  24. Today's sunrise is from my last completed string of cruises, QM2, Crystal Bach, Crystal Serenity, and Crystal Symphony. On November 25, 2019 I was on the Crystal Symphony in Grand Turk: We shared the dock that day with the Nieuw Amsterdam. Easy to see which ship people were on, Blue tote bags, HAL, white tote bags, Crystal. Roy
  25. We are booked on the Nieuw Statendam for a very port intensive Mediterranean cruise next fall where we plan to be off the ship from early morning to right before departure time almost every day in port, but we may want to visit the Thermal Suite 1 or 2 times (most likely on sea days) rather than buying a full cruise pass. Does anyone have any idea of the price for a single day pass? Is it any different for port days vs sea days? Are they hard to come by or pretty easy to get? Thanks in advance for any information! PS - Please leave any discussion about whether or not
