  1. Rich: Thank you for the DAILY. Zuiderdam may be just taking a ride. I will not participate in Nude day. Have a great day. The S class ships and the Flag ships are heading to the Suez Canal. What does it mean if anything?
  2. Thank you for the Bastille Day Daily. I too wonder what's up with the Zuiderdam which appears to be headed for the Jakarta area, possibly turning west from there. I love the quote but will pass on the meal suggestion. It's also National Mac & Cheese day and that will be Panera takeout. Today's Care List: Allen for a great birthday Sharon's son for test results A thankful note for hearing from KK and fatcat04 A personal one from me. Our fire department medical person is currently dealing with shingles and missed last night's board meeting. Roy

  5. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated January 31st, 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).

  8. Cruisers are posting that they are booking cruises for this year's Caribbean season and onwards so here is an update of the Dry Dock, Charter and Groups file. The charters and group sailings organisations have been slowly updating their plans, so the information listed here may change over the coming months. Zaandam and Amsterdam have missed their dry docks which were scheduled to happen in April and May 2020 and as yet no updated scheduled dates are available. If you have information about groups charters or dry docks then please post here and I will update in the next file.

  9. We booked this cruise on the Zuiderdam from December 10th to the 20th leaving from Port Everglades . Our normal 1 hour drive to Park and Go took an extra 1/2 hour due to a couple of construction obstructions . We arrived at 11 AM and moved through the check process quickly and were seated the the upstairs area with about 200 other people . We didn't budge until about 1 PM when the boarding process began . There were long lines that moved slowly and we discovered why as we boarded . Every name had to be checked off manually on an alphabetical list instead of using our cards . We asked and were told that there would be no free lunch in the MDR . We did drop our carry on luggage at our cabin and fearing a crowd of hungry cruisers , we opted for the Dive In ( it was hard to tell if the french fry cup was half full or half empty ) . It was also the first time that we saw the pool area topless . We were in one our favorite cabins #5191 .
  10. We recently returned from a Zuiderdam cruise and were immediately happy with two new items. The first was getting our keycard and finding it was already punched to fit on a lanyard. Saved time waiting at guest services on a busy embarkation day. Our second “happy” was finding late fixed dining began at 7:45 instead of 8:00 pm. We could easily make it to the entertainment we wanted to attend. This was our fourth cruise on this ship and there were no issues, no wishing for changes, no complaining. Another great HAL experience!

  13. I just returned from a week cruise to the Caribbean on Zuiderdam. I enjoyed my cruise and several things about Holland America but I am not sure I will sail this line again. I loved: yummy desserts, great foods, friendly service, the large size of our inside rooms I was disappointed by: The noise in our room..the walls actually shook from the sounds of BBs night club. (our fault for not researching location more but shouldn't the rooms be a bit insulated for noise?) A strong smell of oil? cleaning materials? not sure but three different areas of the ship had fans running to dry out carpets or other spills. Lack of variety of foods and times of availability. I sailed with a girls group of five. We loved relaxing poolside or on the upper deck and chose to eat dinner later in the evenings. The Lido Dining room would close each evening around 8 and not reopen until 1030. We like to eat lunch late(and the Lido closed at 1) and then have a late dinner. We didn't want to eat in the dining room every night. We really would of liked an option besides the Dive In for late lunch. On port days, everyone boarding the ship wanted lunch one day and it was after regular lunch hours. The line for a burger at Dive In took 40 minutes..not my idea of relaxing. Two nights we missed dinner and waited until 1030 for the buffet to open and not fun to eat that late. We booked the itinerary with set times to be in port and times changed. For instance, we were suppose to be on the HMC until 4 but last tender was at 3. I know times can change but we hated how the port days were shortened, I've not experienced that on other lines. Lack of entertainment on sea days as compared to a port day. Movies were shown on the mainstage on port days but not sea days. I know you can watch movies on TV anytime but it would of been fun to see one on the big screen. The boat rocked ALOT, I've cruised small ships before and not experienced as much movement. The Lido pool was dangerous to swim in several times and I was surprised it wasn't closed, especially after watching a child hit his head while dodging waves. Of course we made the best of everything and had a great adventure. Not sure if our experiences were typical or not.
  14. Here is what Cruisemapper currently shows for Zuiderdam and Westerdam. Close is a relative term. Marine traffic still shows Zuiderdam heading toward Manila, which is what a crew member told me several days ago.
  15. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated January 24, 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).

  17. We are booked on the April 8 Panama Canal cruise and I am agonizing over whether to stay on board through Gatun Lake or take the tour to the Embera village. First question is if anyone has done that is it worth it? Next is how difficult is it to get into and out of the canoe? I am older and in pretty good shape but have poor balance so I am concerned since the tour shows it as being moderately strenuous and the Canoe would be my biggest concern. Also, we are in an aft facing cabin and plan to head forward for the canal entry. How early should we plan to be there for a good view? If anyone has other information about this cruise in general I would love to hear it. Excited!
  18. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated January 17th, 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).

  21. I have done several cruises on the Eurodam and was recently on the Nieuw Statendam. Since I need to work, internet is important. What I had on the NS in December was great. Can anyone tell me if HAL has the unlimited internet fleet wide, like the NS? I can't be on a ship for 11 days without it. Thank you in advance!
  22. today is Body Painting Day and National Blueberry Day The optimum committee has no members. -- Norman Augustine Meal suggestion for today - Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves Wine for today - Matervini Malbec Luján de Cuyo Finca Perdriel vintage 2015 At Sea Indian Ocean Eurodam Eurodam is currently the happy wanderer. Both services show her as being at Singapore Anchorage, but the map from CM shows her off the coast of Viet Nam, heading North East. Update - MT shows her off Singapore with a destination of Lisbon, CM shows her destination as Singapore but she appears to be headed for Hong Kong.

  23. I am looking at a 12-night cruise out of Rome on Zuiderdam this Summer and I wanted to get your thoughts on that ship. I've only ever been on K-Dam and NA. I enjoyed both. They both felt modern and updated while some of the pics of Zuiderdam look outdated (small TVs, older fixtures, etc.). Has it been to drydock recently? What does it have (or lack) compared to the other ships? Your opinions are appreciated. I did search "Zuiderdam" before posting and the only thing the CC search pulled up for me was roll calls.
  24. My adult daughter(age32) and myself are taking a week cruise to relax and enjoy some time together. We want to use the T pool and spa area. I looked for prebooking and its 219 a week for a couple or 139 individual. Are people sharing a booking considered a couple? Just wondered if we can book the couple rate. Do we have to prebook? will the price be the same onboard? Thanks
  25. Good day all. Can anyone tell me if the pool on the Zuiderdam is heated ? We will be cruising on her in late September on the Canada / New England route.
