  1. I have an existing booking on the NA for May 15, 2022 (the first Glacier Discovery Southbound in 2022) -- it's still there in my account. But I was checking on fares today to see if the price had dropped. And ta-dah, the May 15, 2022 sailing is showing as "Not Available". The rest of the season is still on the books, but not the May 15. Curious.
  2. I was told my 4-day Jan. 27 cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam was potentially a trial cruise but HAL canceled it last month.

  4. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 30th, 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 ann
  5. At this point.....any HAL ship is our favorite.......... But we really prefer the new Pinnacle class ships.....Our last cruises were on the Koningsdam & Nieuw Statendam and we are anxiously awaiting our Rotterdam cruise this fall.

  8. 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

  12. My sole Pinnacle Class ship experience was on Nieuw Statendam. The different venues was a positive. The design of a few of the public areas was disappointing, I thought. The upper deck around the mid-ship's pool, the walkway is too narrow between the forward foyer and the mid-ship's bar and pizza/deli venues due to design and placement of furniture. I had to watch my footing to prevent stumbling over something. The Ocean Bar's design: ridiculous! Sitting at the bar, you are out in the aisle between "here and there" and then the room itself is divided with a wall so that if there is ente

  14. 1/7/20 We arrived in San Juan. Unfortunately this was the afternoon of the 6.4 earthquake that happened earlier that morning and most places were shut down. We were also on the Nieuw Amsterdam which had one disabled azipod, so 2020 was not starting out well at all. Little did we know what we'd be up against for the rest of the year....

  17. My first cruise on the Nieuw Statendam I booked Club Orange at $50.00 per day and I liked it. I am booked on the Nieuw Statendam next April and I have Club Orange and I got it for $25.00 per day.

  19. We've cruised a couple of lines and have always preferred HAL's Promenade deck for our daily walks. We always try to get 3-4 miles each morning in. When we've sailed RCL, the track up top has always served for both walking and jogging. It's a bit shorter, requiring an extra 'lap' to reach a mile (4) and one must always listen carefully for the joggers coming up from behind OR dodging the deck chairs. We sail on Nieuw Statendam in March 2022 and while sad the Promenade won't be nice and wide as prior HAL voyages, we'll still try to get our walks in.
  20. Thank you for the Tuesday Daily, Rich. Date Nut Bread sounds a bit like fruit cake which is my preference. Salute to Abilities Day and I think I've seen a few cookie exchanges on the Daily. I love the quote and a bit uncertain about the meal. Unfortunately, I don't have a very inspiring one either, it's a freshly made Bacon and Ham Omelet, my final shipboard meal on my 2013 Prinsendam Amazon cruise. I assume Nieuw Statendam needs to leave Curacao fairly soon to make Port Everglades by Sunday. Today's care list: Mrs Vmax with radiation looming Caregiver Gsel and he
  21. 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
  22. We are considering an aft-wrap Neptune on the Nieuw Statendam (I think the Koningsdam is the same) and am wondering which deck to select from? I and familiar with the aft-wraps on the VIsta class ships, but not on this new class. Which cabins are are largest, inside and balcony, and any other pros/cons.
  23. Good day HAL board. I just returned from Eurodam Sep 21-28, roundtrip out of Seattle, and thought I'd give a review. I'll try to keep it as balanced as possible but must warn you that there will be quite a bit of negativity included with the positives. 😉 I'm going to segment it a bit because I like to include photos. I'll start with the booking. DW and I decided to book a last-minute trip out of either Seattle or Vancouver. We looked at all the available lines and because most were nearly completely booked, the prices were sky high. The ships with the most vacancies and lo
  24. The Maasdam , with their fabulous itinerary and EXC program and wonderful speakers had to the be the best cruise experience we've ever had on any cruise ship. (but it is now sold) Next choice would be the Konningsdam . We haven't been on the New Statendam yet, but I heard it is similar with a few improvements. We will go on it next chance we get
  25. Our last cruise (hopefully not forever!) was the Zuidy from Fort Lauderdale to Copenhagen in December 2019. We found our favorite ship! Although we were keen to try her sister the Oosterdam with a first-after-retirement cruise of 28 days... in Mar/Apr of 2020. You know what happened to that plan. The four Vista class ships, named for the cardinal points, just seem to have the optimum size -- small enough to get to know and large enough never to get bored no matter how many sea days. My other past HAL cruises include the S-class Statendam, the Zaandam & Volendam, and the Nieuw
