  1. I say again that Club Orange on Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, I'm talking about the dedicated dining venue there (it also takes the place of breakfast in the PG for "suiters") is fine. That's my personal opinion having dined there on K-dam. If you haven't on those two ships, you ought to give it a try 😉
  2. We already had March 2021 booked on the lovely Nieuw Statendam. We booked the New Year's cruise on Zuiderdam as a replacement cruise for our cancelled one and are thrilled to get to share this with our family. Haven't been on her since 2009. Looking forwards to ringing in the New Year with HAL!! 🍾🥂
  3. Thats was a real joke as well ...she did not do much and was not even present on the first U.S cruise of the Nieuw Statendam.
  4. Club Orange is fine on Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, but that's it; I don't see the concept of putting it in "sections" of the MDRs of the other twelve ships
  5. If you are very quick you will see Nieuw Statendam on this website https://webcam-hoekvanholland.nl/pages/cameras/berghaven.php
  6. Back in November of 2019, I booked a quickie 4-day on the Nieuw Statendam for January, 2021. $50 deposit for 2 people. It looks like we may be one of the first cruises to sail. At the time I booked it seemed very far away. I'm glad I have something booked to look forward to, and I'm not canceling unless HAL does the canceling. This assumes my sister and I can get flights to Ft. Lauderdale. Right now I'm taking a wait and see posture. I don't want to book anything else because I don't want to tie up travel funds and have to wait on a refund if it's a no go.
  7. Here is another one . The Sky Princess at the Rotterdam cruise terminal . She came in last night at around a quarter to midnight. Further down the river she blew her whistle.... the Love Boat theme 🤭 Tonight , the Nieuw Statendam will arrive with European crew as well . Pictures tomorrow as she will arrive around midnight as well ...😴
  8. Thank you OP for starting this thread! It's wonderful to read such positive posts, mostly filled with the thrill of anticipation of better times and planning new adventures. We have made future bookings too! In the hopes that the Caribbean will be a 'go' in December, we have booked a B2B on the Nieuw Amsterdam to celebrate DH's 39th (times 2, LOL) and our 30th anniversary. Bonus: Dear friends will also be on board (we met them on a Circle Hawaii on the Zaandam years ago.) We also have a long-deferred Baltics itinerary booked for July 2021 on the Nieuw Statendam. We are keeping up with the news but don't dwell on trying to 'crystal ball' which businesses may not make it through this challenging time. That is way beyond our control and pay grade. However, there are things we can control and we want to be as positive as possible right now. We can and will get through this!

  10. Hey Rich; just an FYI - Nieuw Amsterdam and Volendam now off Cape Town, South Africa; Zaandam and Nieuw Statendam in the English Channel, and Zuiderdam off the Brazilian state of Rio Grande Do Norte
  11. Thanks for starting this thread , getting sick and tired of all the bad news ones . My glass is always half full so we have booked like @DeeDee Groff the late September '20 cruise to Auckland , I have a deposit on the Premier Cruise of the Ryndam , whenever it is or wherever the itinerary , and am seriously looking at the Norway / Baltic cruise for next July on the Nieuw Statendam , After that is booked we will be looking for a cruise for Jan / Feb / Mar '22 to get away from the Canadian winter . ( Yes we woke up to snow on Sunday morning MAY 10th ! NOT nice ! ) Tony
  12. The Regal Princess is currently in the Princess Amaliahaven in Rotterdam after disembarkation of European crew of the Holland America Group last Thursday. Tonight the Sky Princess will also be in port, tomorrow we can expect the Nieuw Statendam and Thursday the Seaborne Ovation. The Zaandam was supposed to come to Rotterdam for lay up as well , but I saw that the destination was changed to IJmuiden. Hopefully just temporarily. If we can’t can on them , it’s at least nice to look at em. The World Dream from Genting has been in lay up in the Waalhaven in Rotterdam since the end of march after a drydock in Rotterdam.
  13. Thank you for the report. I think Nieuw Amsterdam and Volendam were due originally to refuel in Walvis Bay but ended up going straight to Cape Town. I wonder if they were denied access even to refuel. Nieuw Statendam is just passing Bishop Rock, the traditional Start/end of transatlantic voyages. Things are actually happening in Manila; I saw tenders off on a couple of ships including Explorer Dream which has crew from Crystal Serenity. Amsterdam appears on course to pass pretty close to Pacific Aria, former Ryndam as she approaches Manila. I think today really be eat what I want day and not "eat whatever's in the store" day. I hope a lot of women get at least telemed checkups. Roy

  16. Cruisers are posting that they are booking cruises for this year's Caribbean season and onwards so here is an update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. The charters and group sailings organisations have been slowly updating their plans, so the information listed here may change over the coming months. Zaandam and Amsterdam have missed their dry docks which were scheduled to happen in April and May 2020 and as yet no updated scheduled dates are available. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  20. Thanks for all your hard work especially in these ever changing days. I see you deleted our July 2020 cruise on the Nieuw Statendam which I would have asked you to remove anyway. Just another victim of the round of cancellations the cruise lines are throwing at us. Anyway, maybe someday again in a future year. We are only 4 days away from obtaining level 2 of the Mariner Status and the Norwegian fjord are still a wish list for me. Just nothing yet planned. Stay safe!
  21. email received for Apr 19th Nieuw Statendam cruise
  22. I just got the same email for my Apr 19 sailing on Nieuw Statendam
  23. today is National Tourism Day According to my best recollection, I don't remember. -- Vincent "Jimmy Blue Eyes" Alo Meal suggestion for today - Smoky sweet potato & bean cakes with citrus salad At Sea Atlantic Nieuw Amsterdam destination Cape Town South Africa eta 5/11 Nieuw Statendam destination Rotterdam eta 5/12 Rotterdam destination Cape Town eta 5/19 Veendam destination Cape Town eta 5/21 Volendam destination Cape Town South Africa 5/11 Zaandam destination Rotterdam eta 5/12 Zuiderdam destination Walvis Bay eta 5/19 At Sea Pacific Eurodam destination Manila eta 5/8 Maasdam destination Labuan Malaysia eta 5/27 Noordam destination Manila 5/23 Westerdam destination Manila eta 5/23 Ensenada Koningsdam Oosterdam At Sea Indian Ocean Amsterdam destination Manila eta 5/12 I was going to change today's holiday because it somehow doesn't seem appropriate given yesterday's announcement. However, I saw this as part of the writeup: Yesterday we found out that most cruises are over until next year. An opening was given for a "soft" start with Caribbean cruises starting with the usual season around the beginning of November. I would suspect that any itinerary currently on the books would be subject to change. Ships, ports, and dates are all subject to being altered due to the new circumstances. It looks like several ships will spend the pause near Cape Town, South Africa. A couple will be in Rotterdam with the rest around Asia unless things change. I am also not sure of the future of this forum, as there won't be much positive to talk about for the next few months. Rich
  24. I'd also add that we had booked two more B2B's on Holland America's Nieuw Statendam in April that we were supposed to be on right after we got off Celebrity but because we were flying home on 3/15 I cancelled those on 3/12 too. HAL eventually gave us refunds instead of FCC even though their "policy" was similar to Celebrity's at the time we cancelled. HAL knows how to treat a customer. Celebrity could learn a thing or two. If we ever cruise again it will be on HAL.
