  2. We were very impressed with the unlimited laundry service on our January Zuiderdam cruise. When sent out in the eve, it was always back before 5 the next day, and sometimes by 10 AM the next day. You can send it out morning AND eve, if you'd like :-)
  3. Thank you for your insightful response . Our TA on the Eclipse and stay in Russia and London has 315 k views Baltic Eclipse has 136 k Caribbean Princess in the Caribbean 142 k Regal Princess in the Caribbean 117 k HAL Eurodam in Alaska 76 k The strange thing about our last 2 cruises on HAL was they were 3 weeks each . The Zuiderdam Baltic and Norway , Iceland and Scotland had some our best photos ever and The Zaandam South America and Antarctica with a stay in Patagonia also some our best photos only had 66 k views . 7 weeks total had less than 1 week in Alaska . It seems to be across the board that a Celebrity review has about 1k views daily when we're doing it daily . Princess about 800 daily and HAL only about 200 - 300 .
  4. You are lucky to have gotten the "angled" SY cabin. We love those! As to your question - almost all of the Lido dining area is carpeted. On the Westerdam that means all of the Signature Suites aft of the midship elevators. HOWEVER, recent remodels of the Vista class ships have seen some of them adding a bit of tile right above your angled cabin. We had this on the sister ship Zuiderdam. We did hear some noise at times, but IMO it was not a big deal - would still take that cabin due to the larger space and the angle. Not sure if they did this on the Westerdam though.

  6. One advantage I found was on the Zuiderdam, which was delayed returning to Copenhagen by climate change protestors in Kiel blocking the ship. Those who had flight ease were automatically rebooked, but everyone else had to make their own arrangements, although the ship opened a phone at customer service for passenger use for rebooking.
  7. Elevator and stairs to The Retreat on Zuiderdam. Small elevator goes from 10 to the retreat.
  8. Last year we had somewhat the same situation happen the us. On a Zuiderdam cruise in Sept 2018, we also received a 15% FCC due to problems occurring on that cruise. As you can see in my review of that cruise (https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/2600192-review-of-visits-to-norwayicelandgreenland-on-fall-2018-cruise/?source=122648) (post #262), that I felt the problems were not the fault of HAL and that their offer of a 15% FCC credit was very generous. Like you, prior to departing on the 2018 cruise, we had already booked another cruise on the Zuiderdam for May of this year. Like you - we wished to have the FFC applied to our already booked cruise and on our return, asked our PCC if it could be done without impacting any of the promotional extras we had received with our initial booking in May. The PCC quickly "rebooked" (the booking number remained the same) using FCDs. All of the previous extras remained, plus an added bonus of $300 OBC was added for booking a cruise after having recently returned from a cruise. 🙂 Overall, I found the whole transaction to be painless and fast - I had the revised booking confirmation within 15 minutes of making my request.
  9. Does the forward elevator on the Zuiderdam take you all the way to the Retreat on deck 11 or do you have to get off the elevator at deck 10 and walk up stairs?
  10. On my recent Zuiderdam cruise, Lincoln Center played at 7, 8 and sometimes 9. Since we had early dining, we were always able to get a seat for the 7pm performance. Sometimes the 9pm was a repeat of the 7pm.
  11. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 4th, 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).

  12. Remembering our cruise on Zuiderdam a couple years back, LST performed three shows a day with some matinees. We always had to arrive early to secure a seat. These guys were great. I remember one night a violin player was sick, so the piano player went solo with Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition arranged for piano. It was one of those performances you never forget. Not always but mostly classical compositions...thats what they loved to play and it showed in their execution. Enjoy HAL, I always have. Stephen

  14. Yes I remember your upgrade on the Zuiderdam as we got the same offer. I was taking my daughter on the cruise so didn’t take the offer. It’s a hard call for anyone that’s 4* or higher. Good luck on your decision.
  15. Just thinking now - It feels like a lot of money for those amenities. It's almost as much as I paid for an upgrade to a Neptune on Zuiderdam a couple years ago and I felt like that was a lot of bang for the bucks. Suites are all sold out on the ship so I know there won't be any upsells. I'll sleep on it I guess and decide in the morning.
  16. I love the ease of embarkation. I sailed on Royal Caribbean recently and it was a zoo on embarkation day. Maybe some of that was needing to get visas for Cuba, but never again. I love the crew. They are hard working polite, and caring. I love the new Lincoln Center Stage where we were able to listen to classical music every night. I wish it was a bit bigger because so many people wind up standing. I love the calm and peaceful atmosphere. I love the feeling of being home. No matter which ship I'm on, I pretty much know where everything is. I loved being able to access the internet via my phone from anywhere on the ship instead of having to go to a designated area like the Crow's Nest. Although my recent Zuiderdam cruise only had three public computers, there was never a line waiting to use them when I passed by. I think most people have a cell phone these days. I love being waited on my the crew. it's a real vacation not to have to cook, clean, do the dishes and shop. Pure relaxation. I love my grandkids dearly, but I love that HAL is not inundated by tons of children on most of the itineraries I've been on. Again, it's the calm atmosphere I like. I also like many of the people I have met. Most are seasoned travelers from all over and I love to hear their stories of where they've traveled and the cruises they've taken. I also love the people I've met via this board. Though many of us haven't met in person, it feels like a family.I knew who will always give advice I can count on, who has the correct info, who will use humor and who will use great sarcasm.

  18. That is their best package and it worked well for me this summer in July on board Zuiderdam.
  19. We always book the cabin we want. We cancelled the December Zuiderdam cruise with cabin 5191 for several reasons. We had a good price along with $900 in OBC plus 2 free speciality dinners and $100 drink cards. I happened to be on the HAL site yesterday and checked the price of the cruise that we had cancelled. The NS guarantee was $1662 less than the price we had, but none of the extras. Even so, that's still ~$600 less than what we were going to pay if we had kept it. When I selected 5191 the price jumped $1300. Big jump for that SB cabin.
  20. I just got an email offering me Club Orange on Zuiderdam next week for $25/day. It includes “ a free stateroom upgrade, and other goodies.” Haven’t bitten on the offer yet, because not sure it is worth it. Since I am cruising solo, I have chosen cheapest inside cabin, so they must be desperate to try to get me out of such a reasonably priced cabin.
  21. Our experience on the K'dam, Zuiderdam and Eurodam in the past year is that you will get better service on the second seating. It is less crowded. Our wait staff have told us that the 1st seating is the most popular and is usually full. Second seating also means a greater choice of tables, ie easier to find two tops.
  22. If you're thinking about a guarantee for a NS, the only minus is if you have a strong opinion about where you want your cabin to be. Many people love the corner afts for the large balconies and wake views. Others don't want the aft Neptunes because of the long distance to the Neptune lounge and because there's less motion midships if you get rough weather. Some people worry about the Neptunes by the glass elevator because of people going by and able to see your balcony, although people I've met who had those cabins weren't bothered. There are no bad Neptunes on Zuiderdam in terms of the rooms themselves. The only issue would be if you have strong preferences about location. The only NS I would avoid would be the spa SQs on the Pinnacle class ships. Too far forward (motion) and balcony is small compared to other Neptunes.
