  1. I was offered a future cruise credit for the amount of our fare or we could book another cruise, but I told the agent we already had a Nieuw Statendam cruise booked for Dec. 1st so I declined both of those offers. Since it was a Western Caribbean cruise on the Veendam, I suspect HAL will stop at other destinations in that area instead of the two Cuba ports.

  3. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING - Updated March 8th, 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). MARCH 2019 Eurodam - 09-Mar-19 - 28 day Hawaii, Tahiti & Marquesas (R/T S.D.)

  4. I didn't even ask about substituted ports as we just wanted a full refund. We went to Cuba last year on Carnival and we only booked the Veendam Cuba cruise because it had a second stop in Cuba in addition to Havana.
  5. Veendam will be at Pier 21 (Starboard to) from 0500-1700. She will be leaving on a 10-day Cuban cruise. Friday, November 30 Fort Lauderdale, FL Saturday, December 1 Key West, FL Sunday, December 2 At Sea Monday, December 3 Havana, Cuba Tuesday, December 4 Havana, Cuba Tuesday, December 4 At Sea Wednesday, December 5 Cienfuegos, Cuba Thursday, December 6 Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands Friday, December 7 Ocho Rios, Jamaica Saturday, December 8 At Sea Sunday, December 9 Half Moon Cay, Bahamas Monday, December 10 Fort Lauderdale, FL Also in port are Celebrity Silhouette (pier 25) from 0530-1600 and Serenade of the Seas (Pier 18) from 0600-1600. The PTZtv webcams can be found at https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/ and https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/ . Next up: Oosterdam on Saturday, December 1.
  6. Being a part of Carnival and ships registered in Holland, could HAL redeploy Veendam's homebase to for instance Curacao and do the cuba cruises from there, bypassing the states? Would americans then be allowed to fly there and do the cruise?
  7. We will be on the Veendam in December/January and wonder if there is still Adagio or if they have converted to Lincoln Center style?
  8. I just got an email from HAL. We're booked on the Veendam for December. The Cuba ports are, of course, cancelled. They said that they will be revising the itinerary, revising the pricing as well, and in addition, are going to give passengers a $100 credit (shipboard credit) even if they choose to transfer their booking to a different Caribbean cruise. If we choose to transfer it to a non-Caribbean booking, we'll get $50 in shipboard credit. A full cancellation is also possible with a full refund. Of course, we are not anywhere close to the ninety day ticker. Here's a tiny snippet: "When we create itineraries we look forward to taking our guests to the destinations they expect to visit. When unexpected issues beyond our control occur and we must make the decision to change our itinerary, we share in your disappointment."

  10. I think this thread is a moot point now. Glad we got to Cuba last year on Carnival. We do have an Authentic Cuba cruise on the Veendam on Oct. 30th and according to the HAL website, we should receive some information about it sometime tonight. Carnival is offering free refunds on its booked Cuba cruises and that is what I hope HAL offers since we only booked the cruise because of the two Cuba destinations.
  11. Egad, the Noordam is all the way in Australia?! Bring her back and loaded with Tims Tams please! Which ship cruises from Boston, is still Veendam? Will have to look into that. Where are you cruising to next Sail? Jonathan

  14. We're booked on the Veendam for Dec 17. Of course, we're screwed. All I can think about are our scheduled tour guides and how screwed they are. I'll eat and pay our electric bill and enjoy a cell phone and drive a car anyway. They may not. I am so disappointed. We're going on the Grand Voyage to South America in January, so I shouldn't let this bother me so much, but golly, I am just sick. I wanted to do this so much.
  15. IMO, Veendam is not suitable as a Caribbean cruise ship without her aft pool. I didn't think her particularly good for Bermuda. I might book her again for a 'cool/cold weather cruise' but she is done as a warm weather ship, IMO sail.noordam@gmail.com
  16. Following this thread and news as we are booked on the Veendam Dec 11th specifically to visit Cuba.
  17. My guess is this - that "IF" (and it's a big i"if") the US government gives any exemptions for those already booked to still travel that the cruise lines will sail the published itineraries through end of June / earl;y July and then everything thereafter will be modified to alternate ports short term, and major fleet redeployments long term. Given that Cuba cruises have sold at fares premium to other similar length voyages, I would expect they will compensate those paid in full (and in penalty) in some way, and those not paid in full will be re-fared for the new sailings and have the option to cancel w/o penalty. I foresee HAL doing a COMPLETE redeployment on Veendam as her ONLY purpose in the Caribbean is to sail to Cuba. Beyond that she's just not competitive on a 7 day routing from FLL, especially with her odd mid-week schedule. As those sailings do not resume until Fall HAL would most likely allow anyone booked on her to receive a full refund of monies paid, even if on a non-refundable fare of some sort.

  21. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING - Updated March 1st, 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).

  23. I agree. The general thought used to be that the smaller "R" and "S" class ships had no room to install Billboard Onboard. But the HAL bean counters are placing quantity ($$$$ in drink sales, and a lucrative marketing agreement) over quality. Billboard Onboard will be installed on the Amsterdam on May 26, 2020, On the Noordam on Oct 13, 2019, On the Rotterdam on Dec 6, 2019, On the Volendam on Nov 1, 2019, And on the Zaandam on April 21, 2020. This is a major construction project, so it has to be done in drydock. The only ships that are escaping that disaster are the Maasdam and Veendam, so far. Prinsendam doesn't have it, but it was sold. All of the dates above are from the HAL website PDF "Ships-at-a-Glance".
  24. We have just come off the Zuiderdam (Friday). We too love to dance, but unfortunately in 14 days we managed maybe three dances in the B.B. King room and that was attempting to foxtrot to music that was less than ideal for the purpose. There is no music at all in the Ocean Bar on the Zuiderdam. There is a piano in that room but sadly no pianist. We voiced our disappointment very strongly in the questionnaire HAL sent us. We cruised twice in four months on the Veendam recently because the music in the Ocean Bar was terrific. I don't hold out too much hope for dancing on Holland America ships in the future, so we may have to look elsewhere. Drew
  25. My TA on Veendam from Lisbon to Boston is also visiting these ports. I have been to St. John's Newfoundland before and I enjoyed the ship's excursion that took us to the farthest eastern point and the telegraph building there. Sorry, I can't recall the name but in any case it was worth my time and money. After the tour we enjoyed walking in downtown Saint John's and did some shopping. Super friendly locals there -- you will love it! As for Sydney and St. Pierre, I'm in the same boat as you (pun intended 😉 ) doing my research!
