  1. tell me about it, we can't wait to sail again... We are also looking at the Hawaii cruise from San Diego Nov 2020 but also very interested in the 14days New Zealand from Sydney, not nervous about Covid not one bit, more worried about cruises being cancel again. 2020 wasn't the best year to cruise for us April QM2 NYC-Southampton canceled May Nieuw Statendam to Norway & fjords canceled (we were both looking forward to that 3* mariner status ) Nov Nieuw Amsterdam Transatlantic from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale also canceled thankfully we had a beautiful 18days cruise on the Oosterdam from San Diego to Fort Lauderdale in January. Right now I feel I've been stripped of every morsel of pleasure I earned in this life ...
  2. No one has started a Roll Call for your cruise yet. You can start one by following this link https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/824-nieuw-statendam/ and clicking on 'Start New Topic' then give the Roll Call a title (something like 'June 15, 2021 Baltic from Copenhagen')

  4. On the première voyage of the Nieuw Statendam, we met up w/ the Marella Dream in Funchal. The Dream (as Westerdam) was our first cruise. Where it had been lengthened it had these stairwells that ended 'nowhere' -- ie a wall. Scott.
  5. today is National Cherry Cobbler Day Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see each other whole against the sky. -- Rainer Rilke Meal suggestion for today - Beef & bean chilli bowl with chipotle yogurt At Sea Atlantic Ocean Rotterdam destination Cape Town eta 5/18 Veendam destination Cape Town eta 5/23 Zuiderdam destination Walvis Bay eta 5/23 At Sea Indian Ocean Nieuw Amsterdam destination Jakarta eta 5/26 Volendam destination Port Louis Mauritius eta 5/22 At Sea Pacific Ocean Maasdam destination Labuan Malaysia eta 5/27 Noordam destination Manila 5/22 Westerdam destination Singapore eta 5/25 La Paz Anchorage Oosterdam Manila Anchorage Eurodam Amsterdam Puerto Vallarta Koningsdam Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam

  7. We were in 5231 on the Nieuw Statendam in January and didn't have any issues. Smooth Sailing! 🙂🙂🙂
  8. Hi everyone! I am contemplating booking an aft facing veranda for an Eastern Caribbean in April. We sailed in one on the Eurodam to the Mexican Riviera in December of 2018. We loved everything about it with one exception. There was a strange vibration that wasn't constant. It would come and go. Is this typical of aft facing verandas, or was there maybe an issue with the ship? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! My other options are one of the angled balconies on either deck 4 (partially obstructed) or deck 8. Thanks in advance!! Chris
  9. At least they didn’t name the Ryndam Nieuw Ryndam as well . Must have realized how utterly stupid it was naming the Statendam the way they did. The “ Halve Maen” is still on the funnels of the Rotterdam....
  10. Two simple things … put the Half Moon back on the logo and remove the "Nieuw" in the Pinnacle Class MS Statendam. Two more complex things … restore the simple elegance and guest service where it has been lost or compromised.

  12. Thanks for keeping up the daily during these trying times. Where is the Nieuw Statendam? I thought she was to be with the Zaandam.

  14. I am probably going to be "blasted" for this comment, but a daily dose of Lincoln Center Live with classical music that is unfamiliar to me is a non-attendance of such for me. I appreciate when their programming includes popular music. Yet, enough of such music is enough. Only on Nieuw Statendam have I experienced Rolling Stone Rock Room. I am a senior citizen. There were other more senior citizens than me who were on the dance floor and enjoying the music as much as me. The group was playing the music that we "grew up with" and "enjoyed with fond memories". Only concern was that their playlist was too repetitive from one set to another on different nights. I remember solo/singer guitarists performing in the Crow's Nest as well as on the ships that had the Mix concept Lounge performing. Enjoyable, pleasant music! And, at least with the young man performing in the Mix on one ship, one had to arrive early to get a seat at the bar or at a table! OK with me. All of the performers that I have witnessed have done a good and entertaining job. Such a venue is surely different than the days when the Piano Bar had artists like Diana Fast, etc.
  15. I quite agree. With the millions spent on these high tech show rooms with the entertainment that I witnessed on Nieuw Statendam, whomever planned the entertainment in the World Stage during my cruise should have been fired many months ago.
  16. Re: the outdoor BBQ's and buffets. Because of USPH standards of today, they have gone and won't be returning. When I sailed on Nieuw Statendam, your description of an evening Party around the pool did occur. I don't recall any dancing, but many of the ship's Officers (including many junior ones) were in attendance and were available for guests to meet. It was a very pleasant event.
  17. Thanks for the daily! No apples in the house, but we might do pork chops and apple sauce. I'll pick up some apples in the next grocery shop for apple crisp. So nice to see the Nieuw Statendam. She has a special place in my heart. Looking forward to sailing again sooner than later.
  18. Thanks for the pics of Nieuw Statendam YXU AC*SE. We were supposed to be on board her this week. I think today would have been Rostock with a trip to Berlin.
  19. Thanks. And thanks for the pictures of the Nieuw Statendam YXU AC*SE.
  20. Nieuw Statendam heading out past the Hoek van Holland. Scott.
  21. And the swapping continues. Nieuw Statendam is currently downbound to anchorage, and Seabourn Ovation is taking her spot alongside at Holland Amerikakade. Scott.
  22. March 10th - 21st on Nieuw Statendam! We're visiting some Caribbean islands we have not been to, and cannot wait!
  23. Update: Nieuw Statendam is currently alongside the Holland Amerikakade in Rotterdam. Scott.
  24. today is Apple Pie Day, Frog Jumping Day, and Leprechaun Day Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing. -- Walt Kelly, "Putluck Pogo" Meal suggestion for today - Black bean chimichurri salad At Sea Atlantic Nieuw Amsterdam destination Jakarta eta 5/26 Rotterdam destination Cape Town eta 5/18 Veendam destination Cape Town eta 5/21 Zuiderdam off Brazil destination Salvador Brazil eta 5/14 Scheveningen NL Nieuw Statendam Amsterdam Anchorage Zaandam Cape Town Anchorage Volendam At Sea Pacific Maasdam destination Labuan Malaysia eta 5/27 Noordam destination Manila 5/22 Westerdam destination Manila eta 5/22 Puerto Vallarta Koningsdam Oosterdam Manila Anchorage Eurodam Amsterdam
  25. Finally in her homeport ! About 150-200 people were on the quay to welcome her. Captain responded with a lot of horn blowing. The old ss Rotterdam gave her salute by blowing her horn when the (nieuw) Statendam passed by. It was nice to see HALflags , some homemade banners and of course seeing cruise friends and some staff , who came back just last week on the Regal Princess, and hear their stories. Of course I’d rather be on a HAL ship sooner than later but for now it was the next best thing. 852EAA5C-EC4E-4E99-B9EF-54F305E5CE9F.MOV
