  2. Perhaps that is Khay who was our marvellous wine steward on the Volendam Australian Circumnavigation cruise in 2014, after the first 2 weeks she was moved to the lower dining room. If it is the same Khay, her birthday will be soon, we remember Captain Baijens locating her during dinner service to shake hands and wish her Happy Birthday. ( She was then working in the lower dining room, when we saw the Captain shake her hand, and asked our waiter why this was happening, he replied that the Captain always wished happy birthday to crew members).
  3. Your beautiful San Diego photos bring back good memories. The reason I asked about chairs is that on the Volendam we had a room with a loveseat and only one chair. We asked for and received a good dining room type chair that I really appreciated using. Barbara

  5. Good afternoon from central Texas. I started reading the daily early this morning and off and on during the day. This morning turned out to be busier than planned. Besides, laundry (the last load is now in the dryer!), I took the convertible to the neighborhood service staton to be inspected. After breakfast, we took the motorhome there to be inspected. That is more entailed than just driving a car there. Fortunately, I was able to resgister them online in prepartation for the fall migration to Quartzsite in a few weeks. We have been to Sydney twice. The first time was in 2000 on P&O's Oriana world cruise. (It was the only one that was going all the way around.) In 2002, we were on the 64-day APEC cruise on Volendam, and spent 1 1/2 days in Sydney. I'll post my pictures, some of which may be a version of ones already shown, but others are new. When I'm finished, I'll go back and reread the daily and probably make some comments. In 2000, when we were a lot younger, we had a busy day beginning with the sail in. We took the Ho-Ho and then walked around downtown Sydney. The sunrise as we sailed in and the pilot boat. Our first view of the skyline and the Opera House as we headed toward Circular Quay. Just one picture of the shopping district When we got back to Circular Quay, we decided to take the ferry to Manly across the bay. I couldn't resist the sunset pictures on two iconic symbols of Sydney. In 2002, Volendam sailed into the bay about noon. This was Volendam's maiden call in Sydney, and we were greeted by a fire boat who lead us to Circular Quay. When we left the ship, two wildlife experts greeted us, one with a Koala and one with a Sugar Baby, who had the softest fur. Sorry it's a little blurry. That afternoon, we took the Ho-Ho and visited a couple of museums, including an old electric power plant, but I don't have pictures. The next day, we rented a car and drove to the Blue Mounstains, and on the way back, around some of the far reaches of Sydney. We saw this unusal bug that seems to have a face on his back. It looks like some type of moth. I had to really zoom in so the "face" would show up. Some pictures of the Blue Mountains I've always thought Dali's work while different was interesting. The Rocks Sailway The sunset over Sydney as we sailed toward the Bay of Islands. Lenda

  8. I agree about smaller ships being used for smaller ports. We did an Asian cruise in 2016 and because we were on the Volendam we were able to sail right up the river to Shanghai and its beautiful night lights and berth across from the city lights. Larger ships were not able to do this, I heard.
  9. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated August 13th, 2021 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: Post 3 weeks in advance so you aren’t missed. 1st cruise, anniversary, special celebration? Let us know. 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 cumbersome to read. Don’t mistake this for a Roll Call. Go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic to find your cruise & sign up.

  11. August 25, 2021 12:53 PM EDT Holland America Line Announces May 2022 Return-to-Service Dates for Volendam and Zaandam Zuiderdam will sail the Grand World Voyage in 2023 SEATTLE, Aug. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers looking to get back to sea on their favorite Holland America Line ship can anticipate a restart date of May 2022 for Volendam and Zaandam. The ships will join Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Rotterdam and Zuiderdam, which have returned to service or are slated to restart cruising by November 2021. Holland America Line will restart the two ships in May when Volendam will explore Northern Europe and Zaandam will return to the Canada/New England region. With these new start dates, the Grand World Voyage and Grand South America and Antarctica Voyage will not operate in 2022 and will resume in 2023. "We have been diligently planning and preparing to move our ships back into service, and after an extremely successful restart in Alaska and Europe we are thrilled to have return-to-service dates for Volendam and Zaandam," said Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line. "The team members on our ships in service have shared what a positive experience it has been welcoming guests back on board. We look forward to next spring when even more eager travelers can get back to cruising with us." Volendam and Zaandam Return May 2022 When Volendam returns on May 1, the ship will offer longer explorations ranging from 14 to 35 days to the Baltic, Norway up to North Cape and Spitsbergen, British Isles and Iceland, all roundtrip from Rotterdam, Netherlands. The ship also sails along the Iberian Peninsula to the Mediterranean and down to Egypt and Israel. Zaandam restarts on May 12 in the beloved Canada/New England region, with a cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Boston, Massachusetts, followed by itineraries between Boston and Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The ship will offer the popular 35-day Voyage of the Vikings itinerary in July that sails roundtrip from Boston to Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland. Grand Voyages Resume in 2023 When the Grand World Voyage departs Jan. 3, 2023, Zuiderdam will debut on the 128-day around-the-world sojourn, offering world cruise guests the opportunity to book a verandah stateroom for the first time. Zuiderdam also features Music Walk's Lincoln Center Stage, B.B. King's Blues Club and Billboard Onboard, along with specialty restaurants Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto. Volendam will return for the 74-day Grand South America and Antarctica Voyage in 2023 that departs Jan. 3, 2023. Guests who were booked on the 2022 Grand South America and Antarctica Voyage will be automatically moved to the 2023 departure aboard Volendam. Guests who were booked on the 2022 Grand World Voyage aboard Zaandam will be automatically moved to the 2023 Grand World Voyage aboard Zuiderdam. "Our 2022 Grand World Voyage booked in record time, and with the pent-up demand to get back to world cruising we moved the cruise to Zuiderdam," Antorcha added. "For the first time on a Grand World Voyage our guests will be able to book a verandah stateroom category, which makes for spectacular scenic cruising, breakfast with a view or relaxing outside without leaving your stateroom." 2023 Grand World Voyage Highlights — Zuiderdam 128 days. Departing Jan. 3, 2023, roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale. Crossing the South Pacific to New Zealand and Australia before sailing up the west coast of Africaand charting a path through Northern Europe. 61 total ports in 30 countries and island nations, including eight overnight calls. 15 calls around the African continent with opportunities for safari experiences. 2023 Grand South America and Antarctica Highlights — Volendam 74 days.

Daylight transit of the Panama Canal and overland opportunities to visit Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, Patagonia and Iguazu Falls. Four days of spectacular scenic cruising in the icescapes of Antarctica. 11 calls in Brazil and a journey along the Amazon River to Manaus. Koningsdam to Assume Popular Hawaii, Tahiti and Marquesas Cruise in 2023 With Zuiderdam embarking on the Grand World Voyage, Koningsdam will take on that ship's longer, exotic itineraries in 2023. Koningsdam's 25-day Mexican Riviera and Circle Hawaii Collectors' Voyage will move from a Jan. 31, 2023, departure to Jan. 7, 2023, for 24 days. In February, the larger Pinnacle Class ship offers the exotic 35-day Hawaii, Tahiti and Marquesas itinerary roundtrip from San Diego, and all guests booked for that departure aboard Zuiderdam will be moved to Koningsdam. Zuiderdam's Panama Canal cruises in January and April 2023, as well as a 10-day Mexico and Sea of Cortez voyage, will be assumed by Zaandam.

  14. I know it difficult to compare ships in post-Covid times, especially for a ship that has never carried a passenger. Nevertheless we are planning a Spring, 2022 transatlantic. We are 4* Mariners and have done five transatlantics. We are booked on the Rotterdam for the October 20, 2021 east to west crossing. Currently the Volendam is scheduled to leave for Rotterdam on April 16 while the Rotterdam is scheduled to leave on April 17. Both will arrive in Holland on May 1. The Volendam is the oldest and smallest ship in HAL's fleet, while the Rotterdam is the newest and largest. The Volendam offers Lanai cabins (which we dislike based on experiences on the Zaandam) and Vista Suites. The least inexpensive Vista Suite on the Volendam is $3,199 p/p and there are no Veranda class cabins. The Rotterdam has Veranda cabins on the 6th deck at a cost of $1,829 per person. The Rotterdam cruise is one day shorter than the Volendam. Is there anything from a passenger perspective that would justify a pricier cruise on an older ship? Maybe HAL will start to discount the Volendam. I heard the Volendam is on the block for possible sale, but it looks like the Volendam is scheduled for cruises into 2023. Volendam vs. Rotterdam seems like a no brainer. Am I missing something?

  16. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated July 30th, 2021 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.

  19. When we were there in 2019 on the Volendam, multiple tour guides indicated to us the malaria just wasn't an issue. I realize this is contra to the official recommendations, but that was the word from the street.

  22. Rabbits, white rabbits on this first day of October. Thanks for all the daily information, humour and photos. We have been to Hilo (Volendam) so photos bring back good memories. @StLouisCruiserspleased that you are feeling better today. @mamaofamiWelcome home to Sam, hope your DGS had a very happy Birthday.. @lindalerpleased that you are feeling better after falling yesterday @Seasick Sailor had not heard of an exploding bottle of wine. Thankful no one was injured. @AncientWanderer sorry that your friend has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Does she live nearby? It's a pleasant sunny day, temperature 15 C. Take care, stay safe everyone.
  23. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated July 2nd, 2021 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.

  24. We did the last voyage of the Volendam up the Amazon in December, 2019 and I did a full blog and an Almost Live thread on Cruise Critic. My daily blog is: http://www.timmerbrazilplus2019.blogspot.com It's a terrific voyage and one not to be missed even if the ship goes aground (spoiler alert).
