  2. Thanks for the daily. While I don’t always post I do enjoy reading it everyday. Seven years ago this week we were on the Veendam. Had one of the best excursions ever. The pilot, wearing the green bandanna, may have been a little crazy. Local flowers.
  3. Thank you for the daily. Not really a lemonade fan anymore. Radio is an extremely vital service. My meal suggestion is Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb as served on the Veendam August 20, 2013. I hope that veggie pizza doesn't come with onions in light of the current salmonella outbreak. I see the Rotterdam has left the drydock while still at Botlek shipyard.

  5. We had booked the Nieuw Statendam for April 11, 2021 after hearing the Veendam was sold (had it booked for Feb. 2021). I talked with our PCC last week to have the long awaited FCC received for our cancelled April 2020 Veendam cruise applied to the NS booking. I asked her about the Feb. 2021 Veendam cancellation because it was still on my account. She said it would be there for awhile and just ignore it as it would eventually go away. She emailed me the cancellation form to use to get $$ from that cancellation and she would apply it to the NS booking when I receive notification. The PCC said I should hear something in 2 weeks, but I heard that when the April 2020 cruise was cancelled and it took 5 months to receive the FCC.
  6. today is Aviation Day, World Photo Day, and National Potato Day Nothing cures insomnia like the realization that it's time to get up. Meal suggestion for today - Pesto Corn Salad with Shrimp Wine of the day - Gérard Bertrand Languedoc Art de Vivre vintage 2015 Gulf Bridge (Amsterdam Luggage) Houston until 8/20 At Sea Indian Eurodam destination Durban eta 8/20 Nieuw Amsterdam destination Durban eta 8/21 Volendam destination Gibraltar eta 9/9 Durban, South Africa Westerdam Katakolo Veendam Limassol Maasdam Punta Arenas Koningsdam Oosterdam Rotterdam Amsterdam - at Rotterdam Botlek Rotterdam - at Rotterdam Botlek Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam Singapore Area Noordam Zuiderdam
  7. Has anyone been contacted about replacement cruises/refunds for bookings on any of the ships which have been sold? We were booked on Veendam in Feb 2021 but have had no contact. Concerned that alternatives are drying up whist we are waiting. Our agent has heard nothing from HAL. This was to have been our first HAL cruise but not impressed by this customer service so may have to go back elsewhere. Shame.

  9. Plus Veendam, although still not official, and her (Veendam's) recent renaming of 'Aegean Majesty' makes it all 'very interesting' as Sergeant Hans Schultz liked to utter
  10. Lovely slide show; if reality, it will be out of my price range for a cruise. I can determine that just by the photos. It has been previously noted in the reduction of the number of lifeboats. Fewer lifeboats=fewer guests (if the ship is in fact the former Maasdam or Veendam); fewer guests=higher per day prices.
  11. Thank you for the daily Rich. I bet a lot of thrift shops are feeling the pain although I'm not much into black cats. That quote rings true. My meal suggestion today dinner suggestion today is Pasta Primavera, Chilled Mixed Berry Soup, and Vietnamese Apple strudel as served on the Veendam 8/17/13. Today's care list: Fatcat's MIL Mrs Vmax summer slope's neighbor Denise and David for a safe and stress free return to San Diego The people affected by the Cedar Rapids derecho Those fighting wild fires Remaining Wilderness Adventurer Quarantined Passengers The Matanuska crew Rain and heat relief for Phoenix and much of the Southwest Cruisin single for strength in a time of intense volunteering and Krazy Kruizers and Joe Today's celebrations and shoutouts: The people of Baltimore.

  13. Well -- here's an interesting twist. Not related to Veendam but to the sale by HAL of two ships to Fred. Olsen... I just went to the Voyages to Antiquity website and saw this: "Since we announced the charter of the Aegean Odyssey we have been working hard to find a new cruise line to offer you and we are sorry for the wait, but we believe it to have been worthwhile as we are now delighted to present a selection of cruises on board the classic small ships of our friends at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. We are currently reviewing voyages for departures in 2021 and will update details of these when the current travel situation improves. For current voyages please use the button below. Please note this will take you to VTA’s cruise calendar on the official website of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. This website will remain open whilst you peruse our partner voyages." This is great news for me!!
  14. So you or Andy may be able to weigh in...they spent lots of time in the documentary dealing with the balance of the propellers. While some of this was the usual drama to get you to stick around during the commercial, I was surprised that if this balance issue is such a big deal that I didn’t notice a significant vibration difference from other cruise ships. I guess I was expecting to not feel any vibration at all. While what I felt wasn’t objectionable, it is equal to what I feel in other ships. Of course the Viking ships are the only small ones I have been on (HAL Veendam being the next smallest) so perhaps there is some proportionally involved? Anywho-would love your thoughts on the importance of the prop’s balance and whether they were actually successful.
  15. today is National Tell a Joke Day, National Rum Day, and National Roller Coaster Day Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good. Meal suggestion for today - Salmon and Spud Salad Wine of the day - Jean Perrier & Fils Savoie Apremont Cuvée Gastronomie vintage 2018 Gulf Bridge (Amsterdam Luggage) Caribbean Sea destination Houston eta 8/18 At Sea Indian Eurodam destination Durban eta 8/20 Nieuw Amsterdam destination Durban eta 8/21 Volendam destination Durban eta 8/18 Westerdam destination Durban Katakolo Veendam Limassol Maasdam Punta Arenas Koningsdam Oosterdam Rotterdam Amsterdam - at Rotterdam Botlek Rotterdam - at Rotterdam Botlek Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam Singapore Area Noordam Zuiderdam

  17. Not always! From her acceptance by HAL in May 1996 until January 2006, Veendam IV (the ship we're all speculating about here as to where she'll be going - so, the fourth "S" class) was the only ship in the HAL fleet registered in the Bahamas and therefor flying the Bahamian national colors. The remaining ships were all registered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, flying the Dutch flag. Purely for trivia; for that same 10-year time period, Veendam was also the only HAL ship with an all-British-staffed deck and engine dept. Jonathan Mercer was one of them as he started his career with HAL as a captain
  18. Received the same info as above from my TA as far as the Veendam is concerned Aegian Majesty and now registered in Bermuda ,and she mentioned that both of these ships , Veendam and Maasdam will be Island hoppers of the Greek Isles . Don't know if they will belong to the same company and which company it is yet .
  19. Jacque: Have the Maasdam and Veendam left the fleet. Have the new owners taken over these last two S Class ships?
  20. today is National Creamsicle Day and National Navajo Code Talkers Day Men aren't attracted to me by my mind. They're attracted by what I don't mind... -- Gypsy Rose Lee Meal suggestion for today - Moroccan Lamb Lettuce Wraps Wine of the day - R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Rioja White Viña Gravonia Crianza vintage 2008 Gulf Bridge (Amsterdam Luggage) Panama Canal, awaiting transit At Sea Atlantic Amsterdam destination Rotterdam eta 8/15 At Sea Indian Eurodam destination Durban eta 8/21 Nieuw Amsterdam destination Durban eta 8/21 Volendam destination Durban eta 8/18 Katakolo Veendam Limassol Maasdam Mombasa Westerdam Punta Arenas Koningsdam Oosterdam Rotterdam Rotterdam - at ROTTERDAM BOTLEK Scheveningen NL Anchorage Nieuw Statendam Zaandam Singapore Area Noordam Zuiderdam
  21. From Liam Cusack on FB a quote from a Greek newspaper: "Veendam has been in the port of Katakolo since Monday, where its renovation works continue. The ship, according to its data in Marine Traffic, will be renamed Aegean Majesty while, despite the intense rumors, its new company is still unknown.Of course, in the coming months we will know the new owners and the program of the ship." Makes sense as Maasdam is also in Greece
  22. today is Left Handers Day and National Prosecco Day Whom the gods wish to destroy they first call promising.

  23. More Antarctica tonight. I fulfilled my fantasy of using an outdoor hot tub in Antarctica. January, 2011 aboard the ms. Veendam.
