  1. Having only been on Carnival before this, the last cruise I was on I so enjoyed watching the depth of the water on our cabin TV. Is something like that available on the Oosterdam also? Thanks guys!!
  2. Hope no one was going through withdrawal waiting for the next sail a way! It's been a few days but there are 6 ships in port for this day and one of them is a blue hulled beauty. The Oosterdam is scheduled to be at pier 26 and will be doing 2 itineraries.

Next up are the Niew Statendam and Koningsdam (Port Everglades) & Nieuw Amsterdam (San Diego) on March 17th.
  3. Just off the Oosterdam and I am posting some comments about various aspects of the cruise. This will be about the food. My history of cruising began back in the late 1980s and have cruised most winters since. The last 10 or so have been on HAL. Typically we do the late seating fixed time as we like the more casual pace as well as getting to know the wait staff and having them get to know us. In fact we have enjoyed the MDR experience so much we do not use the specialty restaurants or Lido for dinner I have always been a defender of HAL's food despite reading many complaints over the past few years on this board. Sadly, I must join the complainers. I found the MDR food mediocre this cruise. Some examples were a catfish fillet that was described as lightbreaded with cornmeal and spices. In reality it was something I could get in my local Kroger's frozen fish department in a box. Overbreaded and over deep fried. The next night was a "regional specialty item" - pepper pot soup. May have been the worst cruise item I have ever had. A few pieces of overcooked meat cubes (likely leftover short ribs from the previous night) over which a dilute beef broth was poured. Yes we found out about the $10 charge for an extra entree when my wife wanted to add a lobster tail to a veal chop rather than have the surf and turf. I got the surf and turf. The lobster tail was not bad but the "turf" may have been the worst version of a steak I have ever had anywhere. It seem like a filet you might get an an Applebees and then sliced into thirds. Must have been all of 3 oz. And no cold soups the entire cruise - these used to be the best part of the dining experience for me. We had breakfast in the PG - excellent service and the food was okay but as you know nothing different from the MDR. We did lido for lunch a few times, again not too bad but no smoked fish or tropical fruits ever. My first cruise in 25 where I was disappointed overall in the food.
  4. There are 2 blue hulled beauties sailing for this one. One in Port Everglades and one in San Diego.

  6. What like the following information please Where is the Welcome Onboard Mariner Society Reception held and is it still between 2-3PM? Is the Mariner Champagne Brunch at noon and is it in the Lower or Upper Dining Room (read it's in the Main Dining Room and if true which is the Main)?
  7. On the March 30th Oosterdam sailing, our family has booked the family cabana. It's been 6 years since we've rented a cabana. My question is: Where do we check in to receive access to this area? Front Desk or the cabana area itself? Thanks.
  8. Hope everyone did not suffer from withdrawal waiting nearly a week for the next sail a way out of Port Everglades. We have one blue hulled beauty for this sail a way - Oosterdam. She is scheduled to be at the usual pier 26 and will be doing 2 itineraries. The first is the 7 day Tropical Caribbean: Fort Lauderdale, Florida (23 Feb d1700); Key West, Florida (24 Feb 0800-1600); Amber Cove, Dominican Republic (26 Feb 0800-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (27 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (01 Mar 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (02 Mar a0700) The second is the 14 day Tropical/Western Caribbean: Fort Lauderdale, Florida(23 Feb d1700); Key West, Florida (24 Feb 0800-1600); Amber Cove, Dominican Republic (26 Feb 0800-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (27 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (01 Mar 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (02 Mar 0700-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (03 Mar 0800-1600); Montego Bay, Jamaica (05 Mar 0800-1700); George Town, Grand Cayman (06 Mar 0800-1600); Cozumel, Mexico (07 Mar 1100-2300); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (09 Mar a0700) Other ships in port with her that will be sailing are: Independence Of The Seas (pier 18), Celebrity Infinity (pier 19) and the Caribbean Princess (pier 02).

  9. I'm going on an Alaskan cruise in July on the Oosterdam. Does anyone know if they have karaoke?
  10. DH and I recently sailed on a 7-day Oosterdam Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Last time we sailed on HAL was on the 10-day Zuiderdam Panama Canal itinerary in Nov. 2016. I was amazed at how passengers were so much more casually dressed on the O than on the Z or on previous HAL cruises. Not making a judgement comment at all, just an observation. We brought more casual clothes ourselves than usual and I worried we would feel out of place. Not at all. We live in FL, so drive to the ports and not a question of having to bring extra clothes on planes. Many people changed back into shorts after dinner, too, when in the past most dressed up for dinner and stayed that way after dinner. DH was turned away at dinner because he had on shorts, but he just returned to our NS and changed into long pants. We started cruising in 1994 and dressed to the nines on gala nights and DH wore coat and tie for other dinners. This was our 48th cruise overall, 8th on HAL, and it has been interesting to observe how the times have changed in regard to dress. We sail mostly on Carnival and the same is true on those cruises, too. We don't mind it a bit!
  11. We will be boarding the Oosterdam next Saturday and I have a question about laundry. As there are no self serve laundry facilities aboard the ship, do they offer the "full bag" special during the 7 night cruise? if so, what is the cost? In addition to the 7 nights on the ship, we will be gone another 5 nights so will definitely need laundry done. Thank you
  12. The Oosterdam is set to sail out of Port Everglades and, of course we are all hoping that our captain’s finger will get ‘stuck’ on the horn again. She is doing two different segments for this one and is scheduled to be at pier 26. The first is the 7 day Eastern Caribbean: Fort Lauderdale, Florida (16 Feb d1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (18 Feb 0800-1500); San Juan, Puerto Rico (19 Feb 1300-2300); St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (20 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (22 Feb 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (23 Feb a0700) And the second is the 14 day Eastern/Tropical Caribbean: Fort Lauderdale, Florida (16 Feb d1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (18 Feb 0800-1500); San Juan, Puerto Rico (19 Feb 1300-2300); St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (20 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (22 Feb 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (23 Feb 0700-1700); Key West, Florida (24 Feb 0800-1600); Amber Cove, Dominican Republic (26 Feb 0800-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (27 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (01 Mar 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (02 Mar a0700) Other ships in port are the Carnival Conquest (pier 04), Coral Princess (Pier 02) and Adventure Of The Seas (pier 29).

  13. This was our 8th HAL cruise, 48th cruise overall, first time on the Oosterdam, and 5th Neptune Suite. The ship was in good shape, dinner at the Pinnacle Grill was very good, Lido Buffet food was also very good (especially the Italian station and ice cream), room service breakfast was excellent, and the crew was exceptional. Having said the good things, one of the bad things was our horrible location for a Neptune Suite (Deck 4 way aft with a wrap around deck). We always book specific Neptunes on Deck 7 close to the Neptune Lounge because I have mobility issues. However, in order to receive a great casino rate and free casino Fun Play, we had to book a Guarantee. At booking, I told the agent about my mobility issues and she said she would send a message to the Inventory Dept. with my request to be assigned a Neptune between the forward and mid elevators. I also contacted the Special Needs Dept. with my request. We received our cabin assignment a week before sailing and it was 4180....as far from everything as possible. I called HAL immediately and explained my situation. The agent gave me the Inventory Dept. fax number and told me to send them a letter with my situation and ask for another assignment. Well, a better assignment didn't happen and my cruise was definitely impacted by our horrible location. Also, that Neptune was much smaller and with so much furniture it was hard to get around without knocking into something. The casino was way forward and didn't go every day because of the walking distance (I did have a rollator to help me get around), but I ended up bringing home all the casino cash I brought with me due to good luck on the slots, so a good thing. The casino is tiny and crowded. We ordered room service breakfast every morning (love those free Mimosas), ordered MDR dinner through the Neptune Lounge Concierge most evenings to eat in our suite, and had most lunches in the Lido Buffet. Never did get to the MDR, so can't comment on service. Enjoyed the Lincoln Center Stage musicians, the Billboard had a good male piano player but were horrible singers, especially the female who couldn't carry a tune, DH said the magician wasn't very good. Definitely not the professional singers/dancers shows as before on HAL. Passengers with mobility issues did not have to attend the muster drill at the lifeboat stations - we could sit in a lounge nearby and crew members demonstrated the life jacket stuff for us and we could hear the safety information on the PA system. Lesson learned was not to ever book a Guarantee if you have mobility issues and need to be located mid ship. We have booked Neptunes before with casino rates and always got to select our cabin, so this booking Guarantee was a surprise. I won't do it again in spite of a fantastic offer and free casino money. My mobility issues are fairly new and walking long distances or standing for a long time are somewhat difficult. The Guarantee for the Neptune Suite was not worth it as it negatively impacted the cruise for us.
  14. Port Everglades is going to be busier for this one! There’s just one blue hulled beauty sailing and that’s our Oosterdam. She’s headed out for a 7 and a 14 day cruise and will be at pier 26.

The webcam for Aruba is located at https://www.portarubawebcam.com Next Sail a Way is Feb. 10th when the N Amsterdam sails out of Port Everglades and the Rotterdam out of Tampa.
  15. Anyone been on the Oosterdam recently? We have been on many HAL ships and are considering a Panama Cruise in April on the Oosterdam and wonder about the library and a movie theatre now , two important features we always loved about HAL as they really made our trip. Not interested in the National Geographic shows, we have seen them so many times, they need to offer something new.
  16. Just returned from the 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise on Oosterdam. Had a great time, and looking forward to taking another one. But wanted to consult the hive mind to see if anyone knows or can find out more about an incident onboard on 31 Jan. That evening (a sea day, after leaving St. Thomas the previous afternoon) at about 8:00, the cruise director came on the PA and announced that there was a medical situation involving a passenger. An urgent blood transfusion was needed, so she asked any passengers with type A+ blood who were registered as blood donors to come to the Hudson room immediately. About a half-dozen passengers got up and left the mainstage immediately, the show started a few minutes late, and I half-expected to hear a medevac helicopter overnight. The next day (yesterday) was at Half Moon Cay. About 2:30 in the afternoon, as we were preparing to leave, the captain announced on the PA that an attempt had been made to medically evacuate the patient, but weather conditions in Ft Lauderdale prevented launching the chopper. We would therefore make for Ft Lauderdale at best speed with an ETA of 5:00 this morning. Watching the location display on the in-cabin TV was showing cruising at 21 kts, the fastest I'd seen on the trip. This morning, after we docked (at about 7:00), the cruise director announced that the patient had been transferred to the hospital and was in stable condition. Anyone know any more detail about this situation? And just how advanced are the medical facilities onboard?
  17. What an exciting day in Port Everglades this will be. Along with it being a VERY busy day, the Nieuw Statendam has her christening ceremony today.

  18. Wondering if anyone knows what times the evening show times might be on the March Caribbean sailing on the Oosterdam? Thanks!
  19. It will be a busy day in Port Everglades for this one! The Oosterdam is scheduled to sail at 5 PM and will be at pier 26. She is doing 2 lovely winter escape itineraries.

  20. my sister got off the Oosterdam on January 19th, and just made it home yesterday due to the extreme winter storms. She was telling me tonight that the aft pool -Seaview pool- was closed the entire cruise that week. Has anyone experienced this before? The aft pool/deck happens to be our favorite place to hang on sea days and though we don't cruise until March 16th, but it is a concern for us with our upcoming cruise.
  21. We got on the Oosterdam on Saturday and because of this nasty storm that doesn't seem to go away, we missed HMC, had Cap Cana changed to Samana and now we're in San Juan instead of grand Turk. I fully grasp why, but very disappointed. We booked this itinerary for the beaches.☹️
  22. Are there cabanas for rent by the week on the Oosterdam like there are on the Eurodam? And if so, what is the cost?
  23. Does anyone know if Oosterdam has non dairy choices at their coffee bars such as almond milk, coconut milk or soy?
  24. It’s another busy day in Port Everglades. Very busy. Just one blue hulled beauty but she is doing two itineraries that are probably bringing a lot of people in to escape from the grip of Old Man Winter. Let’s hope they can all get in safely with the weather we are having right now. Oosterdam is scheduled to be at pier 26 (the usual) and leave at 4:00 pm (NOTE -a LOT of ships are scheduled to leave at 4 pm. ) Her first itinerary is the 7 day Tropical Caribbean Fort Lauderdale, Florida (19 Jan d1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (20 Jan 0800-1700); Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (22 Jan 0800-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (23 Jan 0800-1700); Amber Cove, Dominican Republic (24 Jan 0800-1700); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (26 Jan a0700) Her other itinerary that some are taking is the 14 night Eastern Caribbean/Tropical Caribbean Fort Lauderdale, Florida (19 Jan d1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (20 Jan 0800-1700); Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (22 Jan 0800-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (23 Jan 0800-1700); Amber Cove, Dominican Republic (24 Jan 0800-1700); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (26 Jan 0700-1700); Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (28 Jan 0800-1500); San Juan, Puerto Rico (29 Jan 1300-2300); St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (30 Jan 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (01 Feb 0800-1500); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (02 Feb a0700) Other ships in port: Celebrity Infinty - set to leave at 4 pm from pier 19 Island Princess - scheduled for 4 pm at pier 21 Majesty of the Seas - due to go at 4 pm from pier 18 Royal Princess - scheduled for 4 pm from pier 02 Carnival Conquest - due to go at 4 pm from pier 04 Adventure of the Seas - smart enough to leave after the rush at 5:30 from pier 29 The webcams are located at https://portevergladeswebcam.com and https://ftlauderdalewebcam.com Next up is January 20th with the Nieuw Statendam & Nieuw Amsterdam
