  3. We are currently on the Nieuw Statendam in a Neptune Suite and have had dinner and breakfast in Club Orange. It was 75% filled for breakfast and 50% for dinner. Our meals were cooked in the open kitchen by Chef Nella. Both meals were perfect! There is one dedicated wine steward, one dining captain and several servers that take efficient and excellent care of all the diners in a team fashion. Jazz music playing for both meals was nice; the chairs are comfortable and spacious; tablecloths for dinner only. I like the space and the less hectic pace of the dining room. My only issue is the l

  5. Mitzi has some sweet rolls rising right now! Since it is Tuesday, we'll be having Papa Murphy pizza tonight. The next several days should be in the 50's so I will be grilling as long as the weather lasts. Today, we were supposed to be in Fort-de-France, Martinique on the Nieuw Statendam. Here are some photos from our previous visit. Freshly pressed cane juice on its way to the fermentation tanks and distillation towers at the La Mauny rum plant - And some of their gorgeous flowers -
  6. I just realized we were supposed to be in Bridgetown, Barbados today onboard the Nieuw Statendam! I should be looking at things like this -
  7. I had it when I was a passenger on the Nieuw Statendam and I liked it. I will have it on my cruise in early February on the Eurodam. I hope the cruide goes.

  11. We are slated to cruise on February 7, 2021, on the Nieuw Statendam (fingers crossed) and have some questions about this ship: 1) Does it have Pickleball? 2) I read somewhere that they have outdoor movies -- where do they show these movies? 3) How many gala nights are usually held on a 10 day cruise? I'm sure I'll think of more questions as time goes by. LOL I check the HAL site every day to see if they have changed their target date for resuming cruises...so far, so good for February 7... Thanks!
  12. Has anyone stayed in the Vista suites on the 8th deck? Especially ones that have an extra upper bed. Thank you.
  13. Are they going to post the Nieuw Statendam summer 2021 cruises schedule.. Or is this next ship to be sold.
  14. today is Chaos Never Dies Day, World Freedom Day, and Go to an Art Museum Today Day "Uncle Cosmo ... why do they call this a word processor?"

  15. My understanding is that on the non-Pinnacle ships it's a section of the MDR. Not as exclusive or private as on Koningsdam or Nieuw Statendam.

  17. I just moved my group cruise from March 21, 2021 sailing to February 13, 2022 nieuw statendam, lets hope 2022 is better for us all.........
  18. This may be related to the large # of guests from Zuiderdam wishing to be accommodated on Westerdam rather than the arrival date into the US. The Nieuw Statendam crossing on 11/7 arriving 11/21 into FLL is stil open for booking. The Rotterdam 10/10 crossing is closed as it was scheduled to arrive on 10/24 into FLL. All 2021 spring Transatlantic sailings are closed for bookings. All other Europe Sailings are still bookable.
  19. This is most likely how they will handle the 7 day max length mandate from US ports at start-up. HAL (like all other cruise lines) will only reintroduce 1 or 2 ships to start and gradually increase over a longer period of time. They will start ships based on their current schedules and what is allowed to operate (from a duration standpoint). Creation of all new itineraries is unlikely, though there may be port changes based on what countries will allow them to dock. For the Winter/Spring 2021 Caribbean season I only see HAL trying to reintroduce one or two vessels from Florida b
  20. today is Marooned without a Compass Day, National Nacho Day, and Saxophone Day Linus: I guess it's wrong always to be worrying about tomorrow. Maybe we should think only about today. Charlie Brown: No, that's giving up. I'm still hoping that yesterday will get better. Old age is the most unexpected of things that can happen to a man. -- Trotsky Meal suggestion for today - Polenta Cakes With Sautéed Mushrooms Drink of the Day - Black Russian Wine of the day - Terre del Barolo Barolo Undicicomuni Arnaldo Rivera vintage 2013
  21. "With Thanks of a Grateful Nation" to all military HAL blog has several articles about their ships during the world wars. Notably, Nieuw Statendam II logged 530,452 miles carrying over 400,000 troops during WWII. In WW1Statendam II, renamed Justicia as a troopship, was torpedoed and sunk in 1918. Prayers and Cheers to everyone.
  22. Nieuw Statendam has weighed anchor and and is on her way. Roy
  23. today is International Stout Day, National Love Your Red Hair Day, and Men Make Dinner Day I've known him as a man, as an adolescent and as a child -- sometimes on the same day. Some of the things that live the longest in peoples' memories never really happened. Meal suggestion for today - Sausage & Grits Lasagna Drink of the Day - Boulevardier Wine of the day - Bodega Garzón Tannat Uruguay Reserva vintage 2015 at Sea Caribbean Nieuw Amsterdam destination Willemstad eta 11/7 Oosterdam destination Sint Eustatius eta 11/
  24. 2/28/21 was on Eurodam with 52 total Signature Suites and 64 Neptune Suites - 116 total Suites (excluding Pinnacle). By Contrast the 2/27/22 sailing is on the Rotterdam which has 14 Signature Suites and 45 Neptunes. - 59 total suites (excluding Pinnacle). This is the reason for the higher fare on Rotterdam - far fewer Signature and Neptune Suites on Pinnacle Class ships mean they have higher fares vs other ships in the fleet on similar routes. Rotterdam (and her siblings in the Pinnacle Class) has a large # of Vista Suites (104 in total), which Signature and Vista Class vessels
  25. 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
