  1. Eastern Canada is down 1 vessel due to sale of Amsterdam - so a 50% reduction. Alaska so far remains mostly unchanged with 6 ships in the region (down from 7 due to sale of Maasdam) - Eurodam/Oosterdam r/t Seattle, Konigsdam/Volendam r/t Vancouver and Nieuw Amsterdam/Noordam on the N/S Vancover/Whittier sailings. The 14 day Alaska will not operate in 2021. This of course could change. The biggest region affected by the sale of the 4 ships and delay of Rotterdam VII (nee Ryndam) was Europe with a net loss of 2 ships (Veendam and Rotterdam VI ) and a slip in delivery of the new Rotterdam VII by several months.
  2. Hi Can anyone advise me about the oceanview cabins on the Rotterdam or the Veendam? Have the bathrooms been upgraded to the floor to ceiling showers, and has the TV system been upgraded to the interactive systems like on the Volendam? We’re considering a transatlantic voyage on the Rotterdam or Veendam, and the upgrades will be an important factor in our decision- thanks!
  3. Hi all, My mom and I drive down from Jax this morning. Arrive at 1 to an empty port arrival area - only one other vehicle dropping off bags. We had our temp checks then proceeded to fill out the health questionnaire , check in and right on to the ship. we te in NS 004 which is very nice. Had Dive in for lunch. Crew says passengers are about 700 which I think is about 50% capacity. Crew has been very attentive and definitely more attention to sanitization is evident. No self serve in lido. I’m happy to answer any questions about the experience on board.
  4. The internet is impossible and I get on for maybe two minutes after 15 tries so I do not have the piers or times. Koningsdam will be going on and 11-day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer cruise.

  9. We will be on the Veendam for the first time in a couple of weeks. I was looking over the deck plans and wondered about some of the outdoor decks/observation areas. With an inside cabin, we will be looking for places to be outdoors for sea days and sail away, etc. Can anyone give me a little more information on the following: 1. Is the area at the front of the gym easily accessible? Also, how about the deck above the Crow's Nest. I don't see it on the deck plan, but from looking at photos, it seems it is open for viewing. (Trying to avoid areas surrounded by glass but this might be pretty windy.) 2. Curious about the Retreat Area. I see there is a movie screen. Is it used? We have spent quite a few days on the Zaandam and loved the deck chairs on the Lower Promenade deck. Since the Veendam has Lanai cabins I'm guessing there won't be many chairs available there and I will be hanging out at the Retreat instead. Any other advice or hints for a first time Veendam cruiser?
  10. The "Fat Lady" has yet to "sing" regarding the future of many ships, our Statendam included, I think. It boggles my mind to think that Seajets, as a Ferry company, has the financial capacity to begin an entirely new cruise line with our Veendam and Maasdam, let alone adding Statendam. In the current tourist industry depression: someone(s) in Greece must have a crystal ball that the Executives at CCL and RCI don't have.
  11. Veendam's older sister, the Statendam, is docked in Tilbury, UK, awaiting bids. It may be possible that all 4 of the S class ships could end up with the same owner.
  12. It is an all Hal day in Port Everglades. Koningsdam will be at pier 26 (starboard to) from 0545-1700. She is leaving on an 11-day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer cruise.

  14. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated April 24th, 2020 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).

  15. 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
  16. Anyone ever stayed in the "N" cabins on the Veendam? It looks like there are 2 of these cabins located behind the infirmary. It says "large interior" sleeps 4 so I am assuming it has the pull out sofa. We are a Casino offer and couldn't choose our cabin and our booking has consistently listed us as an "N" interior guarantee. Would not be my choice to be in the front of the ship, but hey, it's a freebie cruise! Please if you have sailed in one, give me your thoughts!
  17. It is my understanding there is no mini-fridge in the Veendam lanai cabins. Has anyone ever ordered one for this cabin and, if so, where did they put it? Under the desk? I won't bother to order one if that is the case as I would want to be able to sit at the desk. Thanks.
  18. When we booked a Vista Suite last year (for this May) on the Veendam I thought I had read somewhere on HAL's site that there were some perks that come with a Vista Suite. When I search now though I come up with nothing extra. I don't recall exactly what I read, but I do think I remember a one-touch concierge that we could call as well as other benefits. Was I imagining things, or is there any benefits to booking a Vista Suite?
  19. 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 .
  20. Roy, I have been reporting this since Monday. As soon as MT ceases to respond to Maasdam and Veendam I will delete them from the list. I will follow the same protocol with Amsterdam and Maasdam, although a similar notice does not show on their pages yet.
  21. I think that's been happening for several days now, and MT will always respond to Maasdam and Veendam. The real change will I'm sure will come soon. Their official recognition of the renaming will be recognized 2 ways: 1. When you search for Maasdam instead of the next line being "Passenger ship" it will say Ex Name(IMO Number) 2. If you hover over the icon on the map it will show the new name. Here's an illustration for the Wilderness Adventurer, originally the Caribbean Prince. I searched for Caribbean Prince in Marine Traffic: The ship hasn't been Caribbean Prince since before 2000, but the IMO number stays forever. Roy
  22. Any solos cruising April 1 on the Veendam?
  23. Veendam is the only cruise ship in port. She will be at pier 19 (starboard to) from 0700-1700. She is going on a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise. Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos (21 Feb 0800-1500); San Juan, Puerto Rico (22 Feb 1300-2300); St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (23 Feb 0800-1700); Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (25 Feb 0800-1600); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (26 Feb a0700) The PTZtv webcams can be found at https://www.ftlauderdalewebcam.com/ and https://www.portevergladeswebcam.com/.
