  1. Yes there are typically 6, or more often 7. 2 for the North/South runs Between Vancouver and Seward (now Whittier), 2 Round-trip from Vancouver, 2 Round-trip Seattle and often one doing a 14 day either Round-trip Seattle or Vancouver (will not be back for 2021 and 2022 doubtful as well). I predict Summer 2022 will see 6 ships in Alaska, 4 ships in Europe and 1 ship on CA/NE & VOV. Europe will most likely be Nieuw Statendam, Rotterdam VII, Westerdam and Volendam with CA/NE & VOV remaining on Zaandam. There is a chance they could change the schedules of either Eurodam or N
  2. Thanks for yesterday's birthday wishes! Dinner was great and there is enough prime rib leftovers for tonight. The surprise drink from our son was something that goofy you tube "How to Drink" guy invented. It was supposed to be the spiked punch from the high school dance scene in one of the "Back to the Future" movies. It was 2 oz Guava juice, 0.75 oz Passion Fruit juice, 0.5 oz simple syrup, and 2 oz Early Times Whiskey. You could shake it or just have it on the rocks. It actually was very good! You could use a higher quality whiskey/bourbon but Early Times is what Bif used to spi
  3. We just booked Nieuw Statendam for April 2021 after having our two previously scheduled cruises cancelled. We picked April hoping to avoid further disappointment. My thought being if HAL is not sailing by then they will not be able to survive. Wondering what my fellow HAL cruisers think?

  6. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated August 21st, 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
  7. We sailed on the sister ship, Nieuw Statendam. Avoid the Lido Pool (center pool) since this one is popular with families. Go to the Sea View Pool (aft) which is the adults only pool. With that said, there were only 110 children on our sailing (my children included) out of 2,600+ passengers so their impact was minimal.

  9. We are booked on Nieuw Statendam 1/6/21 for 21 days. Our roll call is getting it on. Yeah, some have bailed on us, but we still have a good group going (I hope). I did speculate that if we get cancelled, maybe we would meet at someone's house for a full day of revelry. No takers. We have the cat sitter lined up and all is ready (no luggage yet as the cat goes nutso). I cannot imagine it not happening. I am not even crossing my fingers. I need this time away!! Jim
  10. I received an email today. My 14 day Northern Isles cruise on Statendam has been changed from 6-25 to 7-18 2021 and departs from Amsterdam instead of Copenhagen. Looks like many changes for that ship, based on a delay in the launching of the Ryndam. This change works for me, for many reasons. One, more likely I'll have the vaccine by then. Also, they added 250 in OBC for my trouble.
  11. Perhaps you are seeing Volendam, Nieuw Statendam, Westerdam, Emerald Princess, Azura, QM2, Ventura and off in the distance to the east Queen Victoria? EM
  12. 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 there are gaps in the itineraries for various ships (e.g. Veendam April 28th to May 8th 2021 which shows no cruises and I cannot find any charters!). Zaandam and Amsterdam have missed their dry docks
  13. I'm happy to see so much interest in the Key West story. Holland America has cruised from Tampa, until now, since the 1980's and Key West was the first port of call for most of the sailings. If a guest missed the ship in Tampa, it was possible for them to meet and board it the next day in Key West! Originally, it was the Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam "N" class, followed by the Veendam and Ryndam "S" class, all of which were just under the new 1300 guest limit. They were a great size for Key West's channel and port and city.
  14. today is International Skeptics Day, Good Samaritan Day, and International Face Your Fears Day The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd.

  17. HAL sent me a notification on my February 13, 2021 Nieuw Amsterdam cruise on our final payment date. Final payment is now due 60 days out instead of 90 days: IMPORTANT INFORMATION In order to provide more flexibility as you plan for your voyage, we have adjusted the final payment terms on this booking. Final payment will now be due 60 days before your sail date, rather than 90 days before your sail date. Please refer to your booking confirmation for your cancellation fee schedule, which has not changed. We look forward to welcoming you on board your next
  18. Last year, today, the Nieuw Statendam berthed in Katakolon, Greece. We did a countryside tour and visited an olive farm/packager. Very interesting. After the tour of the processing rooms ,we had an olive oil tasting. Who would have thought that there was a way to taste the oil properly? The lemon olive oil was scrumptious. Then on to Olympia. Seeing the Olympic village, and learning how many people participated each time was mind-boggling.

  22. Does anyone have any idea as to what is in the blank space on Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam between the midship stairs and the Lincoln Center Stage/BB Kings Blues Club? I am considering cabin 1128 on deck 1 right below and wondering if it is noisy from whatever is above? I cannot find any reviews of this room or it's direct neighbor 1124.
  23. Typed out a long response, and CC decided to delete it just when i hit "post". So typing it out again... bear with me :) To start with, some general comments and then further posts will dive in deeper. As a Deaf passenger with low vision, I wanted to give that perspective as compared to the "regular" perspectives. So feel free to ask questions, share concerns and comments, and I will be glad to address them all. Here we go! First of all - I am Deaf, newly 30, low vision due to Usher Syndrome - combined deafness, vestibular issues, and retinis pigmentosa. American Sign Language (ASL) is my m
