  2. Having never sailed on HAL, this one surprised me, as I found the open decks very spacious, with chairs/loungers always available. In the 4 months we found both pools always had loads of space, with hardly anyone on Dk8 & 9. Comparing pax numbers, I noted Nieuw Amsterdam has 2.25 times the pax count of Viking, so is the total open deck space more than double the Viking ships? Viking's spa may not be as fancy as some of the main stream mega ships, but we found it more than adequate and the price was right - free.
  3. The Viking Star is a charming ship. By design it's almost a smaller copy of the HAL/Cunard ships based on the advanced Vista-class platform with some added features and some sad misses. Viking ships surpass any HAL/Cunard ship as far as dining is concerned. As a sad note, we missed the first class spa and outstanding open deck spaciousness we enjoyed on the top HAL ships (Nieuw Amsterdam). The modest entertainment options did not not concerned us at all, but there may not be any comparison with the top HAL ships and any of the Cunarders. Viking ships are one-class ships. There should be worries about that. As mentioned by other posters above, the embarkation process is as smooth as circumstances permit with no hint of cabin class privileges. There will be more options for specialty dining reservations available to standard cabin passengers as you are on board (but you'll need to act quickly). I do agree, the mandatory payment for what you don't need on a cruise is not a good thing, but once on board you'll forget about this. This is a link to the most comprehensive Viking cruise ship review in the net. Enjoy! Happy cruising!
  4. We booked the March 13 Tropical Caribbean cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Looking forward to it!!

  6. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated June 5th, 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).

  7. Nothing new to report about QE's position. She's still anchored in Manila Bay. She was out to sea one day this past week for operational reasons. There are now 23 cruise ships in Manila Bay following the departure of Celebrity Solstice, Explorer Dream, Maasdam, and Westerdam since my last post. Several more cruise ships appear to be on their way to Manila. 1) Nieuw Amsterdam is reporting Manila for her destination, ETA tomorrow, and is in range to meet that schedule. 2) Crystal Serenity is also reporting Manila for her destination, ETA tomorrow, but has been out of AIS range for several days so can't speak to that schedule at this point. 3) Voyager of the Seas looks like she's returning to Manila after having departed May 25th for Singapore. She's still reporting Singapore as her destination, but her track has her headed for Manila about a day out. 4) Volendam is reporting a June 9th ETA in Manila. 5) Crown Princess is reporting a June 10th ETA in Manila. 6) Silver Muse is reporting a June 22nd ETA in Manila. So, after thinking the party of cruise ships in Manila Bay was slowly breaking up over the past week or so, now I'm not so sure.

  9. I also learned from HAL (phone) yesterday, when calling on an unrelated issue, that my refund of 3/28/20 Nieuw Amsterdam port fees/taxes refund had been processed 5/29. It hasn't shown up on my credit card yet, but based on what other people here are reporting, I may see it tomorrow...or 6/5. For the canceled cruise I took the Future Cruise Credit, which arrived on 5/7. The cruise was canceled when everything shut down in mid-March. Sue/WDW1972

  14. I needed this with everything that is going on right now across the US. Many years ago on former Nieuw Amsterdam CD David DeHavilland would play this song over the PA speakers on deck at sail away with passengers at the rail singing along. Crowds in the terminal waving and streamers flying. Wonderful memories!

  16. We've only been on one TA (Westbound Nieuw Statendam Fall 2019)......but we think that's the preferred direction for us....Why? get the flight (& jet lag) over first while you are pumped for the trip Enjoy fall in Europe (we think we witnessed less crowds & we had good, comfortable weather at that time of year) Wear yourself out in Europe with a go-go-go land itinerary (& cruise ports) knowing rest time is coming Bring onboard all your dirty clothes and get HAL to clean them while on TA! Recoup, relax and organize your pics during the blissful 7 days at sea (best days ever) Enjoy the extra hour practically every day of the 7 days....arrive home rested We flew to Florence and based there for 5 days of non-stop sightseeing (Florence, wine, Venice, wine, Tuscany, wine, Pisa, wine) and then left out of Rome/Cititivichia (however you spell it) w/3 Spanish ports, wine, Azores and wine. We took only one carry on each. Best trip ever. We've got our eye on the Ryndam's TA in the Fall of 2021 and thinking of a similar plan (5 days in Amsterdam and then TA home). The price is way too high right now but watching. We also think we need the newer ships for the 7 days crossing the pond. No matter what direction you choose, enjoy the journey....and enjoy the wine along the way!
  17. today is Mint Julep Day and Water a Flower Day Chef, n.: Any cook who swears in French.

  18. Hi Tony! We have booked Norway and The Baltic, leaving Amsterdam on June 6th. Nieuw Statendam.
  19. I've had 2. The first was on Radiance of the Seas where I was upgraded from a balcony to a Grand Suite. That was a 4 or 5 night cruise out of Tampa. But the best was on Nieuw Amsterdam where I was upgraded from a balcony to a Signature Suite. That one was the best because it was a 13 night Mediterranean cruise. Edit....and THANK YOU for starting a non COVID related thread. What a relief. 🙄

  23. For those wanting a summary of the ships involved without reading the entire blog: ASIA: Maasdam, Noordam and Westerdam are en route to the Philippines. Westerdam will continue onto Indonesia. Eurodam and Amsterdam are in the Manila Bay area in the Philippines. Nieuw Amsterdam, Volendam, Rotterdam, Zuiderdam and Veendam are transiting to Asia via ports in southern Africa. AMERICAS AND THE CARIBBEAN: Koningsdam is at anchor at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where efforts are underway to secure transportation home for a number of teammates. Oosterdam is at anchor at La Paz, Mexico, in minimum operating manning and will move closer to Panama in the coming days. EUROPE: Zaandam and Nieuw Statendam have brought several crew home to Europe and are at anchor in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, under minimum operating manning.
  24. I normally wouldn't book a cabin anywhere near the theater, but this was a casino deal, and I had very little choice. Any insight is greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.
  25. Wow. Where do I begin with this dumpster fire? If you think cruise lines are so reluctant to do anything about domestic violence murders and you think only the ship's flag has jurisdiction at sea, you might want to look up Ken Manzanares. Better yet, you might want to call the FBI, US Coast Guard, US Attorney's Office and the country of Bermuda, and tell them we had no jurisdiction in the arrest and subsequent conviction on Mr. Manzanares for killing his wife at sea on the Bermuda flagged Emerald Princess. And while you're at it, call the Southern District of Florida and tell them they had no jurisdiction to arrest, convict and sentence Mr. Ketut Pujayasa, an Indonesian, for the brutal beating, rape, and attempted murder of a US citizen at sea on the Dutch flagged Nieuw Amsterdam. And here's another little fun fact for you. On cruises that start and end in the state of Florida, the state can actually arrest for cases of domestic violence that occurred on the high seas. So not only is there US federal jurisdiction if it involves US citizens, but the state can charge. The state piece was challenged and ultimately upheld (state v stepansky). I have been working with the cruise industry for decades and not once.....NOT ONCE....were they uncooperative, nor were they reluctant to participate in the prosecution of violent assaults, domestic or otherwise. Do some crimes go un-prosecuted? Sure. But that has NOTHING to do with cruise line reluctance. It's that little thing we call probable cause....you know, the burden of proof.
