  1. 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 anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  2. Where is the Nieuw Statendam? I usually show the ship, but today, it is just scenes from the port area. Hints: It is a port mentioned previously on this thread. You can take a ships tour to these sights or a public bus. The ship docks rather than rendering here.
  3. I live in Torquay where New Statendam joined Westerdam, Zaandam and Volendam this morning. Torbay is very sheltered from all winds except the south east. The prevailing winds are southwest so the ships can sit in comparatively calm water even if it is blowing a gale. It is an overnight sail to Southampton for storing. Zaandam and Volendam are closest in - Zaandam is about a half a mile from the shore, Volendam is a little further out then Westerdam then New Statendam. They are a magnificent if unusual sight. In the next bay are Queen Mary 2, Azura and Ventura.
  4. I avoided booking the 10/9/21 10 night sailing of the Nieuw Statendam for a very similar reason as it is the Mark Steyn Cruise (Conservative Political Commentator). Politics aside, we did not want to be on a vessel where many public areas might be used for exclusive use of the group (fixed seating dining, lectures, musical performances, cocktail parties, etc). This is a disruption to my vacation that I am not willing to accept. Instead we booked the 10/29/21 9 night sailing and took the loss of one port as an acceptable trade-off. We already had the 10/29/21 sailing booked so in either case we are on a b2b, which is what we wanted.
  5. Roy: I enjoyed watching the Nieuw Statendam arriving. I was on her twice in her maiden year. Once as a passenger and once as a Chaplain. I preferred being a passenger on this one.
  6. 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 2021 sailings). As usual,if you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file. New information since last month is shown in RED. Group bookings which appear to have changed since last month are shown in GREY.

  7. 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 is on the other side of that curtain where the open space is. I have never sailed this ship, so I have no clue if this is a walkway, a service area, or has tables for cruisers. Can anyone fill me in on that? There are still others available and I was told I can call and switch if I decide I'd like a different location.

  9. We had rough seas a year ago and weren't able to get to Livorno -- so we used it as a packing day because in a couple days we would be leaving the Nieuw Statendam after 39 days and boarding the Koningsdam in Civitavecchia. Here's a photo of the wake from our cabin (LOVE aft views), our most fabulous cabin stewards Arye and Agus (best in over 25 cruises, I cried when we said goodbye) and the towel animal they did for us that night. I laughed so hard and still laugh when I see this. 🙂
  10. Good morning all! Great collection of days. Thanks for the reminder, I'm a couple months overdue for my mammogram -- have been putting it off because of Covid (as we ladies know, the tech has to get right up in our faces) but I do know they do it safely and I'm going to get that appointment made. Not a fan of black bean soup, and like Joy, I'm a white wine gal so will pass on the wine again... A very welcome dry day here, yay!! Out to the garden. I see that my rose bushes are still getting buds, crazy roses! Here's a photo of the wake from our cabin on the Nieuw Statendam a year ago. We were somewhere near Florence.
  11. Good Morning. Yes please to the Long Island Ice tea, especially on a warm summer's day. Here is a link to the Nieuw Statendam in Southhampton. Val https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9oawm2_4DM

  13. 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). A couple of things to note is that some Charters/Groups have posted their schedules, however HAL have not posted theirs (eg Nieuw Amsterdam, Caribbean Winter 2021 sailings). Also there is a 3 day gap in Zuiderdam's Spring 2021 schedule, between Sunday May 23rd (end of charter sailing in Lisbon) and Wednesday May 26th (start of new sailing from Civitavecchia). I am missing a lot of Dry Dock information, perhaps @Copper10-8will have some relevant information over the coming months. Please treat this posting as a 'Base Line' and it will be updated and amended as newer information comes to hand. As usual if you come across any information please post it to the thread for inclusion in the next update. (Nothing is in 'Red' this time as I have treated it as all 'New Information'!)

  14. Some of the Zuiderdam sailings for Fall 2021 through Spring 2022 are now bookable in the POLAR travel agent system - HOWEVER - they do not yet appear on the consumer website. Zuiderdam arrives FLL on 11/27 from Europe and has a 26 day "blank" in her schedule until 12/23 - assuming a trip to Freeport Drydock (11/12 days) followed by a Westbound Panama Canal sailing (14/15 days). Her last Drydock was Dec 2019, so the timing is right for another visit. 12/23/21 - 1/2/22 10 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN Then a 56 day "blank" in her schedule from January 2nd to February 27th, which is just enough time for 4 Panama Canal Sailings of 14 Days each SAN-FLL, FLL-SAN, SAN-FLL, FLL-SAN. This is not confirmed, but is logical given the loss of full Canal transits due to the Sale of the Rotterdam and redeployment of Zaandam. 2/27/22 - 4/3/222 35 Days Hawaii/South Pacific R/T SAN 4/3/22 - 4/13/22 10 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN 4/13/22 - 4/22/22 9 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN - also bookable as a 14 Day SAN-YVR itinerary (Sea of Cortez and Pacific Coastal) This confirms she WILL NOT return to the Caribbean Sunfarer/Wayfarer (partial canal Transits) of the past few years, nor will she go to Tampa. This also tees her up to go to Alaska for Summer 2022 along with Oosterdam, Noordam, Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Konigsdam.
  15. Has anyone stayed in the Vista suites on the 8th deck? Especially ones that have an extra upper bed. Thank you.
  16. Perhaps the difference had to do with the Club HAL staff on that cruise. Anyone that has cruised on a HAL ship for a number of years knows that the quality and the personality of the crew with whom they interact--as well as those with whom they may not interact, i.e. the Hotel Director, the Executive Chef, the CD, the Maitre d', the ship' Master, and others--can have an important influence on one's on-board experience as well as the memories that are taken with them upon disembarkation. Inspecting the Club HAL facilities and reviewed the Club's "When and Where"on Nieuw Statendam, as one who has worked with youth, I saw nothing with the facilities or the programming to quibble. It is the job of a quality staff to fulfill the "promise" that, I think, exists for Club HAL.
  17. Last year was Thanksgiving dinner on the Nieuw Statendam, after a full touring day in Aix-En-Provence Cassis and Marseilles, which we booked through ItalyTours. I never figured that out, but it was a good day!
  18. I’ve been on the Coral a couple times and on Princess many times. I’ve never been on the Nieuw Amsterdam, but I’ve been on HAL a few times. I’ve done both cruise lines in Alaska. I haven’t done a land tour, so this is just about the cruise. In most circumstances I would choose Princess over HAL, but many HAL people would say the opposite. I hope you’ve asked this same question on the HAL board. Both ships are a similar size. The Coral is older and had a big renovation a few years back. Nieuw Amsterdam had an update more recently. I think both ships are a good size for Alaska. The Coral has very good outdoor viewing which is important. I like the “secret” front viewing decks. I don’t know if they’re still open to passengers. I like the covered pool on the Coral for Alaska. I like that the buffet is in the front of the ship for Alaska. The Coral never seems crowded to me. Prior to Covid, I would prefer Princess for the self-service buffet over HAL’s staff served buffet, but now both will be staff served. In my experience, HAL is more sedate. Princess is a bit livelier. I think Princess has better onboard naturalists and programs. Princess entertainment is better. A Signature Suite on HAL is a nicer cabin and balcony than a mini suite on the Coral. The mini is a nice cabin, though. If the itinerary is the same and the cost difference is not an issue, I might choose HAL for the cabin, but I’ve been to Alaska several times. If this is a one time experience, I think Princess offers a better Alaska experience.
  19. Pic of the Scheveningen (The Netherlands) anchorage with Nieuw Statendam still in place. She has since departed for Southampton, England. Scheveningen is both a district as well as subdistrict of Holland's third (just for Sir PMP 😉 ) city, The Hague/Den Haag
  20. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 25th, 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 anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  21. I was just able to apply a $950 FCC from a cancelled 2020 cruise to 2021 booking on the Nieuw Stantendam. This amount was just taken off of the total cost of the cruise. No deposit was listed on the receipt or asked for. Also, it seems that the Past Passenger Rate is combinable with the Casino rate for a great discount.
  22. 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!
  23. Are they going to post the Nieuw Statendam summer 2021 cruises schedule.. Or is this next ship to be sold.
  24. Thanks for the update Rich. I suspect the Nieuw Statendam will anchor with the Other HAL ships anchored off England
  25. Any thoughts why Nieuw Statendam destination Southampton eta 10/15
