  3. Alberta Quilter, I am currently booked in a Spa OV on Deck 10. I was looking forward to trying this cabin category (view perspective) and didn't want to give it up. The big box TA said that I could upgrade my cabin category to the next level and get the promotion for $300 more. I am not interested in an obstructed view balcony or paying $300 more. Before our two trips on the Veendam in 2018 and 2019 we always sailed in a balcony cabin. We liked the OV cabin (we had the same cabin each sailing) on the Veendam so we thought we would try an OV on a larger ship. As I said earlier, I will be sure to look at the Black Friday sale this year. I hope your DS is successful with adding the promotion. BC

  5. I was on the Veendam for a 12 day Mediterranean. Some thought the ship was dated, I thought it was beautiful - and there was enough room to eat room service with the couch with decent size table. Oceanview also had bathtub. Booked late but was much better price than Princess. Am looking at Mexico in October on the Oosterdam & price is very good compared to Princess (I know it's the Royal but I hate the larger ships).
  6. I really liked the ricotta dessert balls(can't remember exact name) on the Veendam made to order pizza station. Does the Oosterdam have anything similar?

  8. Both the Rotterdam and Veendam spring 2020 T/A's are very similar to sailings Prinsendam has done in the past. We are booked on Rotterdam. Overall I agree with HIMSELF but find Rotterdam also has some very Prinsendam-like sailings.
  9. Cunard serves canapes and at times the barman would also bring a small dish of olives. Your experience on the Noordam was far different from mine on the Veendam. I guess it varies from HAL ship to ship.
  10. I sailed on the QM2 TA this past July and hor d'oeuvres were served in the Chart Room when you ordered a drink. Sometimes the Chart Room was so crowded that the overflow had to go to Godiva to order a drink. They only served potato chips as an hor d'oeuvre with your drink in Godiva. Your experience on HAL being served hor d'oeuvres must be new. I said on the Veendam last year and no hor d'oeuvres were served when you ordered a drink. You were lucky if you received some dry roasted peanuts. I hope his helps.
  11. EXC voyages isn't the same as the Elegant Explorer. Different concept altogether. First, let's get rid of the idea that any ship currently in the fleet can take over the role of Elegant Explorer. They can't. The ships in HAL's fleet just don't have the panache to fill the Prinsendam's hulls. They are too large, and the newer ships don't have the charm. There is no way any of the ships can take over the Prinsendam's itineraries. The Veendam has taken over some of the former Elegant Explorer's itineraries, but she is too large to do the more unique routes on some of Europe's rivers, or the Kiel Canal.

  13. I'm booked on the Veendam for October Montreal to Fort Lauderdale....I have every confidence that althought she may be an older ship, I will have a great, relaxing holiday. I've sailed many times with HAL and Disney, both have always been awesome.
  14. Rotterdam and Amsterdam are the co- flagships of the fleet. I do not think Amsterdam will be used as a 'new' Prinsendam I think HAL will either buy a 'second hand ship' (as was Prinsendam or they will build a new ship. wHo knows? None of us have been present at high level meetings discussing this question Veendam is a whole different ship than Amsterdam and/or Rotterdam and IMO, is not suitable as a world cruiser in warm weather climates. She has been destroyed through the years and multiple dry docks, IMO I sailed her to Bermuda two or three years ago and was hugely disappointed in her. We had sailed that ship a number of cruises since her Inaugural year and the changes are dramatic, I would question the information you shared here as passed to you recently re: Veendam. I don't question you were told that but do question how true it is. If they 'knew about what they were speaking. .
  15. Hope you are having a great cruise Ann 🙂 Rotterdam and Veendam are trying to do some of Prinsendam’s itineraries and I suppose Amsterdam will too. Veendam is not attempting to do them all but no matter who does them, it’s just an “attempt” and an imitation IMO. They can’t go to over 200 ports that the Prinsendam did let alone sail the Kiel Canal. I’m sorry, but no current ship in the HAL fleet can take over the Prinsendam’s itineraries. They are too large to go down some of the rivers/canals and ports. HAL would be better off to not say anything about the Prinsendam IMO. They sold it. They gave up the itineraries. The other ships can’t do the same ones.
  16. That was the question I asked myself as we boarded in Seattle - the flagship of the fleet, the World Cruise ship, the newly-refurbished almost 20-year old... And I was even more confused at muster drill when I saw a familiar tall figure on the deck with us. I thought my eyes were deceiving me, but later on our CD, Bruce, mentioned the opportunity to book a cruise with our Future Cruise Consultant, Sheryll, and I knew I had seen our (multiple) Prinsendam master, Captain Jeroen Schuchmann. (He was on board as a passenger, prior to going for training for the Amsterdam captaincy.) However, I have to say, I don't think Amsterdam will be the new Prinsendam, which was confirmed by Sheryll, who announced that Veendam will be taking over all of the late, lamented Prinsendam's cruises, except for the Kiel Canal, which will no longer be on any HAL itinerary. Amsterdam will be doing a Grand Africa, and the World Cruise, but others will be done by Veendam. Our last cruise - on Prinsendam - was part of a Grand Voyage, so it is difficult to make comparisons. The Amsterdam is beautiful, I think she most reminds me of Zaandam, with a few differences, most of which are probably across the fleet. No orchids in the Lido Market, new bags, no amuse bouche at dinner in the Pinnacle, Club Orange as part of the dining room.....

  18. Just curious where you got those photos. I took them and am pleased to see them being used but I like to keep track of where they are online. By the way Mjan, here's the one for 387, probably the best of those cabins. Let me add that I've sailed the Veendam twice and was very happy with here. She had some real serious problems after they did their number on the aft pool. Those problems have long been corrected but I don't think people will ever stop reporting on them. Roy
  19. We liked the Veendam so much on our June 2018 cruise to Bermuda that I checked where else that ship was going. We ended up on a Greek Island cruise in May 2019 in a Lower Promenade cabin, oceanview not lanai. Those OV rooms have more storage than the lanais, but the. We liked the location a lot and would book on that deck again. Yes, it's an older ship and the elevators could be better, but its smaller size means no crowds getting on and off the ship. We had Select Dining, didn't make dinner reservations, and never waited more than a minute to be seated, except when we asked for a two-person table (5-10 minute wait). The dining room was quieter and the service more efficient than on the Celebrity Summit, our most recent non-HAL ship. The MDR food was comparable on the Summit and the Veendam, though the Summit had a better buffet, larger because it carries 50% more people. Here's a photo that will show you what the view is from 385. Straight on, it is fully obstructed, but look either left or right from the window and you will see the ocean. The view from 383 is below Even if you've booked, you can switch to another room, but these two HH rooms have better views than the ones fore and aft on that deck. ~Maya
  20. Agree with everything you said! We are easy going cruisers and don't sweat the small stuff, so I know we will enjoy the cruise. We have been on the Veendam and several of Carnivals smaller ships and don't need all the bells and whistles of a new, big ship to enjoy ourselves. The Armonia looks really nice from the pictures I've seen.

  22. We will spend our 100th night on a Dam ship as we embark on Monday on the Veendam.
