  1. Sky Princess as well as Nieuw Statendam and Zaandam also leaving Great Bahama Bank all bound for Rotterdam.
  2. My mom and I have been watching the videos from past cruises that we still have on VHS tapes as I have been working on capturing the video to convert to MPEG's and DVD's. Just finished another one from our 1991 Alaska cruise on the old Nieuw Amsterdam. Decided it was time to check on the ships off the west coast and those still in the Bahamas. When it comes to the remaining ships in the Bahamas there was another crew transfer and starting sometime earlier today they have all set out to get more crew home. According to the AIS for the ships on Marine Traffic, Zaandam - Rotterdam Nieuw Statendam - Rotterdam Zuiderdam - Cape Town Rotterdam - I think also Cape Town as her AIS says CPT Not HAL but also in the area the Sky Princess is also headed to Rotterdam. On the west coast there was another transfer involving the Westerdam, Noordam, Oosterdam, Koningsdam and the Seabourn Sojourn in All Saints Bay at Ensenada, Mexico. Maasdam wasn't involved in this one. The AIS for the Maasdam (PH MNL), Westerdam (Manilla Island) and the Noordam (Manilla) indicate they are all headed to Manilla. Oosterdam appears to be heading to Puerto Vallarta (MX PVR) and Koningsdam is TBA as she now has non Asian crew on board. And speaking of we did see on the NBC national news at dinner tonight a story about the American crew still on board and HAL was a part of it. Sure hope they can figure something out. So with the ships that were still in the Bahamas now headed where they are there won't be any more sail aways form Port Everglades till the fall. Hope all the ships and the crew on board now on the way home have a safe journey in doing so. I also like using https://www.cruisemapper.com/ as its just cruise ships and cruise lines are color coded with HAL being yellow.
  3. You are right! At least when I was on Nieuw Statendam, the sight lines to the floor of the Lounge were better than on the former Noordam.
  4. today is Hairstyle Appreciation Day National Honesty Day "I'd love to go out with you, but the man on television told me to say tuned."

  5. It can be hard to decide what to do. My mom and I have been cruising with HAL now for over 32 years. We started back on the old Nieuw A sailing from Tampa for Christmas in 1988. We have been at sea for the Holidays (both Christmas and New Years) every year since along with other cruises in between. When we have canceled which is a handful maybe at the most it has been due to financial reasons. Also dealing with the fact that my mom is 89 with underlying health problems. We had two cruises booked for October last year with the idea that we were going to do one or the other. As it turned out we didn't do either one of them and did nothing last summer/early fall. We did do the Holidays again and booked while on board for 20-21. This past year for the Holidays we were on board Nieuw Statendam when the virus was starting to heat up more in China. I remember seeing in on the news while we were on board. When it comes to going this year for 20-21 we will likely make our decision at final payment time. Its possible that date could end up being closer to the sailing date so by then will have a better idea of where things are at. For us we also always take insurance. But with everything going on with people trying to deal with having their cruises canceled and the $$ involved that can be a lot of money that we all could use for other things that are more important right now. Just look at what the cruise lines are having to do now to get crew home. Looks like more Asian crew is going to be transferred on to the Noordam from HAL ships off the west coast and the Seabourn Sojurn. I did read this on another thread but don't remember which one. Then also via a Facebook group I saw a post tonight that seems to indicate that there is another transfer going on involving the ships in the Bahamas and one of them (Nieuw Statendam I think) will be going Trans Atlantic. Back to our situation I know when we get to our final payment date is likely when we will make our decision for December. We would much rather deal with a $200 refundable deposit than thousands if we make the final payment and then not end up going even though we would have the insurance. OMG if this were to happen I don't know what I would do with myself as we have been on a HAL ship for the last 32 years in a row for the Holidays and we have no family in our area. We still don't know for sure and we won't for a while when the ships will actually be able to get back to cruising again and when they do it wont't be all at once which will cause more cancellations. Ports need to open back up. People need to be able to fly to get to the ships to get on them. Hotels need to open back up. Cruise lines will have to be able to get their ships ready to go again. Think about all the people that were caught up in the mess of trying to get off a ship and get home and if something flares up would you want to be stuck in that position.
  6. Has Zaandam been in for scheduled dry dock yet? Her hull paint looked nice arriving yesterday. With our "Atlantic Fleet" remaining off the Bahamas; Nieuw Statendam, Zuiderdam, Rotterdam and Zaandam, maybe they will resume what they can of the Europe season or Canada New England.
  7. We are scheduled for a two week cruise out of Amsterdam on the Nieuw Statendam. Departure date is August 2nd. Thoughts on if this will happen or not? We are going to go if the ship sails. Will all the ports be open? If the ship doesn’t sail we will take out flight and do a road trip. Will that be possible?

  9. This mustering concept in a large public room seems guest friendly as I have experienced it on MSC Meraviglia and Nieuw Statendam. How would such a situation truly play out if the Captain orders "Abandon Ship"? So many people; some few crew members to control the number of guests particularly as I saw on Nieuw Statendam in the World Stage and in Meraviglia's Main Theater. I know that the USCG approves of the abandon ship plans of the cruise lines and I know that drills are done--with crew--to demonstrate that it can be done within the proper time frame. With the increasing number of the guests, I have to wonder: is the current Muster Plans for any vessel really realistic?
  10. The muster experience you had on the Oasis was our same experience on the Nieuw Statendam last October.......We were herded into the Main Showstage theatre and sat according to our muster station number....We were scanned when we entered with out key card. We then went thru a safety presentation and if this was for real, we'd all be ready to follow the HAL staff assigned to our area to our lifeboat. It worked well and seemed like a great way to make sure we knew where to go and what to do.
  11. March 2002 in Honolulu. She seems confused as to whether she is Patriot or Nieuw Amsterdam. EM Statendam was there also, as the fireboat comes out to welcome us on Star Princess inaugural cruise:

  13. Couldn't agree with RuthC more, I will only add that I am booked on the Veendam for the 37-night Spitsbergen, Iceland, and British Isles Explorer sailing from Amsterdam on July 3, 2021, and at the rate things are going--or not--this very well be the first cruise on which I shall actually sail! I have also cruises booked between now and then on the Oosterdam, Nieuw Statendam, and the Westerdam, but I greatly prefer the R and S classes, the latter one of which the Veendam is a member. If it helps, I have not sailed on either the Eurodam and the Zuiderdam. Be safe and happy cruising!
  14. It was a nice quiet departure for a great ship. it was good to see her in port. I like the Nieuw Statendam.
  15. Just saw that the Nieuw Statendam is scheduled to depart at 19:45. Don't know if I will be here at that time or not.
  16. Thanks for the info. I much prefer the old Crows Nest. I was on the Nieuw Statendam last fall and didn't like the set up at all. They have the Explorations area. Very techy...and very empty.
  17. Nieuw Statendam is now back to "Scheduled" for 1900.
  18. Nieuw Statendam is now confirmed for 4pm (16.00h) departure.
  19. We were supposed to celebrate ""Koningsdag"" - Kings birthday- on the Nieuw Statendam. Even in The Netherlands today there are no celebrations, just a speech by the king on TV. The advice still is stay at home.
  20. Good morning. Thank you for the Daily Report. I've been watching the Nieuw Statendam arriving in Port Everglades. Happy King's Day.
  21. Thank you for the report. Nieuw Statendam is entering Port Everglades with a few crew out, either on individual balconies or masked up. Roy
