  1. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 22nd, 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.

  5. One of the most common questions we get on these boards, particularly from new members, is about the different "classes" of HAL ships - the Vista-class, S-class, and so on. Naturally, everyone wants to know which ships are in each class, and what the differences are. With that in mind, I decided to post this "sticky" post explaining the different "classes". I hope this clarifies the situation. Now, let's meet the different HAL ships, starting with the smallest and oldest: PRINSENDAM PRINSENDAM - Built 1988 - 37,983 Gross Tons - 793 passengers The smallest and oldest HAL ship, she is in a class by herself. She generally does the longest and most expensive cruises. She is the only HAL ship not built for the line, she was built in 1988 as the ROYAL VIKING SUN, became SEABOURN SUN in 2000 and then PRINSENDAM in 2002. Among things that separate her from the rest of the HAL ships - she does not have a two-deck dining room or main lounge, an indoor/outdoor pool, or dedicated children's facilities. Her smaller, more intimate size and off-the-beaten path itineraries are appreciated by her increasingly loyal following. S-class STATENDAM - 1993 - 55,810 GT - 1,251 pax MAASDAM - 1993 - 55,451 GT - 1,251 pax RYNDAM - 1994 - 55,819 GT - 1,251 pax VEENDAM - 1996 - 55,451 GT - 1,251 pax These four ships are the "backbone" of the HAL fleet. They are virtually identical except for color schemes and artwork. They were the first new HAL cruise ships to have features like the atrium, the two-deck high dining room and main lounge, and the indoor/outdoor Lido pool. These very versatile ships have done everything from 7-day Caribbean and Alaska cruises to full World Cruises. Recently they have been upgraded with features like the Pinnacle Grill alternative restaurant and the Neptune Lounge concierge lounge (for suite passengers). R-class ROTTERDAM - 1997 - 59,652 GT - 1,316 pax VOLENDAM - 1998 - 60,906 GT - 1,440 pax ZAANDAM - 1999 - 61,396 GT - 1,440 pax AMSTERDAM - 2000 - 61,484 GT - 1,380 pax The R-class ships are very similar to the S-class, but a bit longer and wider. Unlike the S-class, they are not all identical. The first of the four was ROTTERDAM. Specially designed for longer cruises, she is the fastest ship in the fleet. She also introduced new features like an alternative restaurant, concierge lounge, and Internet Cafe (all since retrofitted to the older ships as well). VOLENDAM and ZAANDAM followed; they are similar to ROTTERDAM but slower (the same speed as the S-class ships) and are a bit larger because the aft pool was moved up one deck, creating more indoor space on the deck below. Unlike ROTTERDAM, they were designed for yeoman duty in the Caribbean and Alaska though they also are suitable for longer cruises. Like the S-class ships, only decor separates these twins. The final R-class ship, like AMSTERDAM, like a hybrid of ROTTERDAM and VOLENDAM/ZAANDAM. She is faster than VOLENDAM or ZAANDAM but not as fast as ROTTERDAM. Like ROTTERDAM, she was built specially for longer voyages. ROTTERDAM and AMSTERDAM, together, are considered HAL's "flagships" and along with PRINSENDAM they usually do the longest and most prestigious cruises - the World Cruise along with the various Grand Voyages. Vista-class ZUIDERDAM - 2002 - 81,769 GT - 1,848 pax OOSTERDAM - 2003 - 81,769 GT - 1,848 pax WESTERDAM - 2004 - 81,811 GT - 1,848 pax NOORDAM - 2006 - 82,318 GT - 1,918 pax These are the biggest and newest HAL ships currently in service. They were designed mainly for shorter (less than two weeks) cruises in the Caribbean, Alaska, and Europe. Like the S-class, they represented a departure from previous HAL ships in size and design. While bigger than HAL's other ships, they are still much smaller than some competitors' ships which are now sometimes bigger than 150,000 GT and can carry over 3,500 passengers (Royal Caribbean have now ordered a ship that will be 220,000 GT and carry over 5,000 passengers). These ships are notable because of the exceptionally high number of private balconies - over two-thirds of cabins have them. They are called the Vista-class because they are named after the points of the compass in Dutch - Zuid (South), Oost (East), West, and Noord (North). The first three are identical; NOORDAM incorporates a few design changes which make her larger and have a slightly higher passenger capacity. Signature-class This will be two (or more) ships which will be larger, improved versions of the Vista-class, much as the R-class can be considered improved versions of the S-class. Right now there are few details but they will probably be about 90,000 GT with a passenger capacity of about 2,000.
  6. IF there is a Grand Asia or Grand Pacific in 2023 it would most likely be on Volendam as she will be sailing to Alaska from Vancouver for summer 2023. She could easily reposition to LA/San Diego for such a sailing. Zaandam will most likely be doing Canada/NE cruises and be in the North Atlantic for the summer season so no need to reposition her to the west coast when Volendam is already there :)
  7. Guide to HAL Ship Classes - 2021 I found this guide to HAL Ship Classes to be quite good - and a bit more current as of early 2021 https://thepointsguy.com/guide/holland-america-ship-class-guide/ Gene Sloan May 23, 2021 In the wake of a major downsizing in 2020, Holland America has a relatively simple fleet. The storied, Seattle-based cruise line now operates just 10 vessels that can be bunched into just four groups. Each of these groups — known as “classes” in cruise industry lingo — is made of ships that were constructed around the same time to the same basic design. If you know one member of the group, you know them all. An introduction to Holland America ships Holland America has downsized its fleet considerably over the past year with the removal of four vessels. But it’s still one of the seven big lines that account for the majority of cruises taken by North Americans. It now has 10 ships that together offer more than 20,000 berths. In general, Holland America operates big ships. But they’re not nearly as big as the vessels operated by the six other big lines that cater to North Americans. Indeed, in some cruising circles, Holland America’s ships are referred to as “mid-size” ships (as opposed to big ships). In part, that’s because Holland America’s biggest vessels top out in size at about 100,000 tons. That’s nearly 60% smaller than the biggest ships operated by Royal Caribbean and 40% smaller than the biggest ships operated by Norwegian Cruise Line. Some of Holland America’s vessels are as small as 61,000 tons, which is as small as some of the vessels operated by much pricier, smaller lines such as Oceania Cruises or Crystal Cruises. What this means is that you’ll be in for a more intimate cruise experience on the typical Holland America ship than on the ships of such rival lines as Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess Cruisesand Celebrity Cruises. There will be fewer people on board, and venues may be less crowded. On the flipside, in general, you’ll find fewer venues and amenities on Holland America ships than on the ships of its competitors operating bigger vessels. If you’re looking for a big, bustling megaship with every amusement known to humans, Holland America isn’t your line. A key thing to know about Holland America ships is that there are a lot of similarities from class to class within the Holland America fleet. Unlike some lines such as Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, Holland America doesn’t always drastically change the design of its ships from class to class. Instead, Holland America usually takes an incremental approach to design changes for its new classes of ships. You’ll find a lot in common between Holland America’s Pinnacle Class of ships and Signature Class of ships, for instance. And these two classes aren’t all that different in feel than the earlier Vista Class. In general, Holland America’s biggest and most amenity-packed ships are its newest ships. If you’re looking for a Holland America cruise experience with the most possible onboard activities and venues, you’ll want to steer toward the vessels in its new Pinnacle Class. If cruising in the most intimate environment possible is your goal, you’ll want to look at Holland America’s oldest class of ship — its Rotterdam Class. Pinnacle Class Ships in class: Nieuw Statendam (2018); Koningsdam (2016); Rotterdam (coming in 2021) Size: 99,863 tons Holland America’s Nieuw Statendam. (Photo courtesy of Holland America) If you’re in the “newer is better” camp when it comes to cruise ships, this is the Holland America ship class for you. Holland America’s Pinnacle Class just began rolling out in 2016, and the two vessels in the series that have debuted so far — Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam — are significantly younger than any other vessel in the Holland America fleet. They’re also bigger than any other vessel in the Holland America fleet and, as a result, boast more amenities. Notably, in addition to a main restaurant and casual buffet, both of the Pinnacle Class ships have five separate specialty dining venues — everything from a pan-Asian eatery and an Italian eatery to a steakhouse. That’s more than you’ll find on other Holland America ships. Pinnacle Class ships also have all of Holland America’s signature entertainment venues — something that can’t be said for the line’s older vessels. Specifically, on Pinnacle Class ships, you’ll find one of the line’ signature Music Walk live entertainment areas with a B.B. King’s Blues Club (for Memphis-style rhythm and blues), Lincoln Center Stage (for chamber music), Billboard Onboard (for chart-topping hits played by a live pianist) and Rolling Stone Rock Room (for a live band playing classic rock). The latter is something that’s only found on Pinnacle Class ships for now. The Pinnacle Class ships also have spectacular, state-of-the-art main theaters with push-out stages enveloped by two-story, 270-degree wraparound LED screens. The theaters are home to all sorts of additional music, dance and comedy performances. The top decks of the Pinnacle Class ships have main pool areas that can be covered by a retractable glass magrodome during inclement weather. This makes these ships a good choice when booking a cruise in a destination where the weather can be iffy. Each of the Pinnacle Class ships also has a secondary Seaview pool and lounge area at its back. In addition, each of the Pinnacle Class ships has a spa, a casino and an extra-fee outdoor lounge area called The Retreat — the latter is a feature that first debuted with the Pinnacle Class. Also new on the Pinnacle Class are Holland America’s first ocean-view cabins for solo travelers. Holland America currently has plans for three Pinnacle Class vessels in all. A third ship in the series, Rotterdam, currently is under construction at a Fincantieri shipyard in Maghera, Italy. It’s scheduled to be completed in the coming months and debut later this year. Each of the Pinnacle Class ships is designed to carry 2,650 passengers at double occupancy. Signature Class Ships in class: Nieuw Amsterdam (2010); Eurodam (2008) Size: 86,700 and 86,273 tons, respectively Holland America’s 2,104-passenger Eurodam. (Photo courtesy of Holland America) At around 87,000 tons, the Signature Class vessels are about 15% smaller than the Pinnacle Class ships, and they have a somewhat more intimate feel. They also have a tad fewer amenities. Like the Pinnacle Class ships, both of the Signature Class vessels — Nieuw Amsterdam and Eurodam — have a Music Walk entertainment area with a B.B. King’s Blues Club, Lincoln Center Stage and Billboard Onboard venue, for instance. But neither of the vessels has a Rolling Stone Rock Room. And you’ll find just three extra-charge restaurants on the ships — the Pinnacle Grill steakhouse, Canaletto for Italian and the pan-Asian Tamarind. Unlike the Pinnacle Class vessels, the Signature Class ships don’t have Rudi’s Sel De Mer, a brasserie created by top Holland America chef Rudi Sodamin. They also don’t have a Grand Dutch Cafe. Still, the Signature Class ships are similar in look and feel to the Pinnacle Class ships. Like the Pinnacle Class ships, the Signature Class ships have main pool areas that can be covered by retractable glass magrodomes during inclement weather and secondary pool areas at their backs. The ships are designed to carry about 2,100 passengers at double occupancy. Vista Class Ships in series: Noordam (2006); Westerdam (2004); Oosterdam (2003); Zuiderdam (2002) Size: 82,305 tons Holland America’s Westerdam sailing in Alaska. (Photo courtesy of Holland America) Comprising four vessels, this is the biggest group of Holland America ships. It’s thus the class of Holland America ship on which you are most likely to sail. In size, the vessels are just a tad smaller than the Signature Class ships — about 5% smaller, to be exact. But they are designed to carry about 9% fewer people at double occupancy. This means that they have a slightly more spacious feel than the Signature Class vessels. Their slightly smaller size, though, also means there are slightly fewer amenities. To wit: The four Vista Class vessels offer just two specialty restaurants: Holland America’s signature Pinnacle Grill steakhouse and the Italian restaurant, Canaletto. Unlike the Signature Class, there is no pan-Asian dining venue. The main entertainment offerings on the Vista Class vessels are identical to what’s found on Signature Class ships — a Music Walk entertainment area with a B.B. King’s Blues Club, Lincoln Center Stage and Billboard Onboard venue. Like the Pinnacle Class and Signature Class ships, the Vista Class ships have main pool areas that can be covered by retractable glass magrodomes during inclement weather and secondary pool areas at their backs. Rotterdam Class Ships in series: Zaandam (2000); Volendam (1999) Size: 61,396 and 61,214 tons, respectively Holland America’s Zaandam. (Photo by Ivan Pisarenko/AFP/Getty Images) The Rotterdam Class ships are significantly smaller than the rest of the ships in the Holland America fleet — about 25% to 38% smaller — and have a more cozy feel. Because of their smaller size, they also have fewer features and amenities than the ships in the other Holland America classes — particularly the ships of the newer Pinnacle and Signature classes. In general, these are ships that appeal to cruisers looking for a more intimate experience on a cruise than what you’ll find on the bigger ships. They also draw cruisers who care more about the destinations they visit on a cruise than onboard attractions. Along those lines, Holland America often deploys the Rotterdam Class ships on its more far-flung, destination-rich itineraries, including lengthy around-the-world cruises. For the coming year, for instance, Zaandam is scheduled to sail a 128-day around-the-world cruise out of Fort Lauderdale (starting on Jan. 3, 2022) that includes stops in North America, South America, Asia, Africa and Europe. On this single voyage, the vessel will sail up the Amazon River in Brazil; transit the Panama Canal; visit Hawaii, Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, India, Oman, Dubai, Jordan, Israel and Turkey; transit the Suez Canal; and make multiple stops in Europe. At about the same time that Zaandam is heading off around the world, Volendam will be departing for a complete circumnavigation of South America. The 74-day journey is scheduled to start on Jan. 4, 2022. Despite their smaller size, the Rotterdam Class ships offer the same number of pool areas (two) as their bigger sister vessels, with one pool area covered by a retractable glass magrodome. Each of the vessels has two specialty dining venues: Holland America’s signature Pinnacle Grill steakhouse and the Italian restaurant, Canaletto. Entertainment options on the Rotterdam Class ships include a main theater for shows, a Lincoln Center Stage for chamber music and a Billboard Onboard venue for live piano music. Bottom line The Holland America fleet is relatively easy to understand. There are just four types of ships in the Holland America fleet, and — for the most part — they aren’t too different from each other. Holland America believes strongly in offering a consistent product from ship to ship, and it doesn’t make revolutionary changes with each class of vessels it unveils. The big difference between the line’s four classes of ships is the size of the vessels in the classes. If you’re a fan of bigger ships with more amenities, you’ll probably gravitate to the new Pinnacle Class vessels. If you like your cruise ships more intimate, you’ll probably want to stick with the Rotterdam Class vessels.

  10. Friends of mine are on Eurodam and sent me this pic of Volendam and Zaandam parked at Corfu. Thought I would share:
  11. Good morning friends! I heard some thunder overnight so I guess we got a little rain. Today wasn't a gym day because the M-W-F group shows up and one couple ties up four machines for 30 minutes. Frustrating for the rest of us. We'll go tomorrow. DH tells me he's calling the dentist this morning because it seems a bit of a filling fell out overnight in the tooth next to the extraction. That will need repaired and he may have changed his game plan for that area after his socket heals. It may require implants. Teeth are important so whatever works best! Meanwhile DH noticed a spot on my lower back above the waistline that he thinks our dermatologist should look at. We both have an appointment with her in a month so I will definitely ask her to have that area thoroughly investigated. I had melanoma 20 years ago on my upper back so I don't take any chances. Nuts are great and healthy too. What's not to like? Clean up the world is a good idea. I try to do my part in keeping it clean and safe. Smart is very cool! Did you hear some people want to end gifted programs for our advanced students? Not fair to others? Please, spare me! The gifted program was very helpful to my son as a child. Those students need to keep advancing not lag behind their abilities. Interesting quote. And no hash for me if you don't mind. Prayers for our folks in need and cheers for those celebrating! I'm happy to see the photo of the Volendam and Zaandam sitting side by side in Corfu. Those two ships are my next two HAL "rides" in 2022 and 2023. Leave it to @cat shepardto remember a birthday! Happy birthday to @bdrcole!! We visited Huatulco, Mexico on our 2016 Westerdam Panama Canal cruise. In my photo book of that cruise I referred to it as a real gem. The area where the ships dock is developed for tourists and is near the town of La Crucecita. We enjoyed all the shops, visiting the church and a restaurant for DH's beer. But we also walked to the town center of La Crucecita. I'll post the photos separately.
  12. Thank you for the TGIF Daily, Rich. I love all 3 of these days and enjoy a handful of nuts daily. Cleese's statement is spot on. Been to Huatulco twice, both times on Crystal Symphony. The meal sounds nice but I think I'll pass. My alternative is Chilled Peach and Ginger Soup, Spice Crusted Prime Rib, and Apricot Crisp as served on MS Amsterdam October 22, 2017. https://solocabinchallenge.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/dishes22.jpg Today’s care list: RIP Colin Powell RIP FF Pierre Lacroix Welfare of furloughed crews Western wildfires cat shepard’s friend recovering from aggressive chemo StLouisSal not hearing from friend with liver transplant 1Angelcat awaotomg biopsy ger_77 losing friend and cousin’s father Quartzite cruiser losing long term neighbor and friend cunorl’s (lymphona) and DH’s (stroke) sisters Covid in JAM37's family Mr. Boston temporary crown From the rotation: NextOne DDIL with long haul Covid Grapau27 awaiting MOHS surgery Celebrations and Shoutouts 4 BHB with passengers Front Line Health Care Workers Aliaschief in Pinnacle Suite Vict0riann, sailingdutchy/ Lady President// and Gail& Marty at sea durangoscots at a dog show Lady Hudson at sea(Oasis OTS) New chair for StLouisSal Additional booster options approved cunorl’s sister with great treatment resources a new photo of baby Camila Eurodam reunited with Volendam and Zaandam and Staff Captain Sabine, HAL’s likely first female Captain(I know this is a repeat but she’s worth it) Roy
  13. We are in Kerkira Corfu this morning, at anchor and I didn’t know why as we docked last time, but Zaandam, Volendam , Norwegian Jade and Marcella Discovery have taken up all the dock space. I will try to get a picture of us three dam ships together!

  17. We were in Adelaide in 2010 on the Volendam and had a wonderful day there. The Botanic Garden, The National Wine Center at the University of Adelaide and a wonderful lunch at a highly rated restaurant interestingly name Concubine were on our to do list for the day.
  18. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 1st, 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.

  19. My 2020 booking of the Amazon Explorer cruise on the Volendam was cancelled by the virus from China. Now that HAL has opened the same itinerary for bookings on the Volendam for 2022, I'm ready to try again. My only other HAL cruise was a transatlantic on the Eurodam several years ago. Any Volendam cruisers out there with tips on the ship or this particular cruise?
  20. As has been my custom on previous cruises, I'll be doing an Almost Live blog type posting here during our first cruise since our last cruise on the Volendam to the Amazon and Beyond before the pandemic shut the industry down. Feel free to post questions, and I'll try to answer them. I may not post every day, but I do a personal journal every day. On the roll call, some have called this a "mystery cruise" as the ports have changed. My wife and I are looking forward to all of the stops especially Avalon, Manzanillo, Aruba, and overnight at Half Moon Cay. We have sailed on the Nieuw Amsterdam once before on a trans-Atlantic and am looking forward to a return cruise on it. We had the opportunity to view it docked in Seattle yesterday as we greeted friends who were on that cruise to Alaska. I'm looking forward to sharing our voyage with all of you.
  21. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 24th, 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.

  23. Right you are! I checked "Whats In Port" after I posted and read that up to 250 Meters/800 feet is the limit to dock in the city. Seems to me, even the Prinsendam had to time itself quite closely with the high tide and kicked up some of the bottom. The Volendam and Zaandam may be small enough to dock city side.
  24. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 17th, 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.
