  3. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 11th, 2019 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).

  4. Thanks for the additional information. I had a feeling that it might be something like that. The screening in Corfu did seem a little hectic at times, especially since it opened directly into the Duty Free Shop. I'm not sure how much attention the guys in Naples paid to the Cruise Card as we returned to the ship. BTW, the security guys and gals on the Veendam were great. Lenda
  5. John, thanks for the interesting explanation of the security procedures in the various ports. We appreciate the fact that HAL as a rule does not duplicate the screening procedures carried out in the port. That being said;, we were on the Veendam this summer, and there were one or two ports where we were screened on shore and on the ship. Since we did three b2b's and repeated some of the ports, we noticed that the ports that we were double screened in did it on every port call. Any explanation of why this occurred. I just never thought to ask the Security Officer about it when we saw him. It was not a big deal since the ship's security personnel were great at moving people along. Generally, screening on the ship never took very long unless more than one tour or shuttle bus returned at the same time. Even then, the ship security did their best to move the process along. Most slowdowns occurred when a passenger forgot to empty their pockets, and had to be rescreened.
  6. We have cruised on both cruise lines. We very much enjoyed both..but for different reasons. We find RCI to be similar to HAL inasmuch as It pays to select your ship carefully to match your personal preferences. Both cruise lines have several different types of ships. Oasis, Radiance, Veendam, and Kdam are all very different from each other. As are the other ships in both fleets. We found the service and the food to be on par. The only difference for us was the perks...RCI was far more generous in providing perks that had value to us.

  9. Since I often see people wondering if they should book Veendam, I just thought I'd drop in and say that my Mom and I recently returned from an amazing Canada New England cruise on her. The ship was in great shape, the food was amazing and the service ... I can't even talk about it, just so, so good. My last few cruises have been on NCL, and the service there has been dropping like crazy. It's almost like I got used to it and forgot what great service looked like! Anyway, I'll be back to HAL for sure now, it was just so great and so restful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone to book her.
  10. Here is the latest update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. Please consider this a 'work in progress' which will evolve from month to month. There is a doubt about the planned Dry Dock for Noordam, 23 November 2020 to 6 December 2020 as she is currently in dry dock in Esquimalt, B.C. until Sunday 13 October. She has no cruises currently listed for the period 23 November to 6 December 2020. The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  12. Here is the latest update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. Please consider this a 'work in progress' which will evolve from month to month. Westerdam is not showing a sailing between 4th January 2020 and 16th January 2020, so she may also be dry docking or maybe a charter. Eurodam is not showing a sailing between November 29, 2020 and December 9, 2020 so again this may be a charter or it may be a dry dock. The file consists of information gathered from the internet or information kindly posted on these threads by other cruisers and should not be considered a complete indicator of group activity. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  13. 26 November 1973 to 08 Dec 1973 - on the SS Nevassa - Dubrovnik-Athens-Trabizon-Istanbul-Messina-Naples. Parents paid around $450 for high school trip on an "educational" cruise. It was a converted troop ship and we slept in dorms with about 16-20 racks to sleep on per dorm. I remember the food was horrid... It wasn't close to a cruise ship by today's standards.... I don't remember if the airfare from Moncton NB via London UK to the embarkation/debarkation ports was included or not, but the shore excursions were. My first what I would call a "real" cruise was on the Veendam to Bermuda in 2015. Paid $499 CAD each for a big inside cabin (port fees, etc extra).

  15. As my TA likes to say, that's why the fares are low this time of year. When we did a fall repositioning on Maasdam or Veendam several years ago, we didn't miss any ports, but it was so windy for two days that we couldn't open the balcony door. Were Newport and NY on the itinerary? If so, NY should be OK. Newport is a tender port, so if it isn't already on the itinerary it would be difficult to add it last minute. The whole Northeast has been windy. Local (NYC area) news station even mentioned that cruise ships would have a rough ride. That isn't something they usually talk about.
  16. When I think of an in-depth EXC expansion to the Atlantic region on one of HAL’s smaller ships they can’t seem to sell (eg, the Veendam or the Zaandam) that would entice us back to HAL, I’m thinking of more intense subjects. For example from the historical viewpoint, I’m thinking of talks on Ancient Greece, the Roman and Ottoman Empires, the Pyramids, WWI and WW2, the rise and fall of the Spanish, French and British empires. With regards to the planet we’d love to hear about advancements being engineered to make our world more eco-friendly, such as the evolution of the massive wind turbine farms popping up all over Northern Europe. We also hear there are some countries trying to go completely fossil fuel free within the next 10 years. We’ve also heard the Dutch have been making great strides in this area as well for many decades. Also, where have all the wild animals in Europe gone? How are the polar bears and walruses doing in the Arctic and Greenland? Stories about European volcanoes would also be cool along with other natural occurring events that have gone on there for eons to include the big blast near Santorini that changed everything in that area - as well as a variety of interesting talks about everything in between. And what about that collider in Switzerland? What’s that all about? That’s the kind of stuff we’re interested in hearing about. Stuff that makes us think about where we have been and where we are going as a world. That’s why we’re enjoying the lectures we’ve heard so far on this cruise and are so looking forward to hearing more!! They are all focused on teaching us stuff and making us think about the area of the Pacific we are cruising in. Ok, I’m stepping off my soapbox now. 😁
  17. We're going on the Veendam in a couple weeks (Montreal to Miami) and wondered if anyone knows is April dry dock included upgrading suites with USB ports and large interactive TV's etc. like the newer ships have. Just trying to figure out what cords to pack. We're in a Neptune. Thanks in advance.

  19. Are you sure it’s under the galley and not the Hudson Room? If it is, it looks like it is under the Pastry Kitchen. Check out Maasdam’s sister ship’s plans: http://halfacts.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Veendam-Kitchen-2013.pdf To help you line it up, 390 is directly under the dishwasher station.
  20. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 27th, 2019 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).

  21. For the first time I am trying an interior cabin. It's just a 7 day cruise so I acquiesced . Just this once. I have a guarantee (K690 ) aft on the Main deck (5). the deck plans show nothing below on Deck 4. Does anyone know what is on the aft end of deck 4? Thanks
  22. Nice to hear a positive review on Veendam. Our friend, Tom, was aboard the Veendam from Lisbon to Boston in August and also said he was very pleased, so much so, that he booked another cruise on Veendam for this coming winter. HAL has put some money back into this "S" class ship and it seems to have improved. Veendam is coming back to Tampa Nov 2020 for the winter season, and I'm hoping may resume the Bermuda itinerary in 2021.
  23. Looking at the Veendam - cabins 082 or 232 Vista Suite with larger balcony. Any difference between them? Is Navigation Deck preferred? Any experience with these cabins and opinions would be appreciated. Thank you

  25. We're going on the Western Caribbean itinerary on Veendam on November 6 out of Fort Lauderdale. At the time we booked, it was going to two ports in Cuba, but when that changed, the cruise was repriced (lower) and we decided to keep our reservation. We have been on Veendam twice before, once for a Canada/New England cruise and last year to Bermuda. I'm glad to hear the positive comments. I enjoy the ship because of its relatively small size. It's so much easier to get everyone organized at a port call and you get to know the other passengers.
