  1. I was on the same Zuiderdam cruise. Yes, the OP is correct about the computers. I bought the internet package and had some difficulty with it the first two days. A lovely lady at the Mariner reception who was from customer service helped me out. The following morning, I went down to the man who was in charge of the internet and he explained how it works and I never had any more trouble, and yes, there are only a few computers. There were several news stations (including MSNBC and FOX and some British and world wide stations as well as movies on the TV. No problem there. The captain did make mention at dinner one night that many people had come down with the flu and colds. He never said how many, but I figured it was enough and more than 25 to make the announcement. My hands were just about raw from how much washing I did. In the evenings toward the end of the cruise, the coughing was quite evident and I just kept removing myself from the venue or people who were sick. It seems as though that cruise cough is always accompanying me on any cruise I go on, but I'm happy to say my husband and I are well. As I looked around at the people on the cruise using scooters (4 including me) canes, wheel chairs(about 6) and walking sticks, I was reminded of my first HAL cruise where the numbers far outweighed that amount. The average age was about 75, younger than most HAL cruises I've been on and no children that I saw because school had started. Never eating anything but a salad for lunch at the Lido, I can't comment on the lines. Service up there was outstanding and the variety of food was excellent. We never bought a drink package so I can't comment. Yes, I'm using a scooter because I can't walk long distances.I didn't go on any of the HAL tours because I didn't want to inconvenience anyone.I usually hire a small van or taxi and tour with 2 other people. It's never been an issue. I was really amazed at how many people held the elevator doors for me and they could not have been nicer about it. I'm out and about because I refuse to let my disability keep me home. Someday, OP, you too may grow old and need some help. I hope people will be as accommodating to you as they were to me. This cruise was everything I would have wanted and more. Perhaps OP has made the right decision to stay away. I can't imagine fighting over line in the Lido and am glad I didn't witness it.
  2. We were on the Zuiderdam in April. We did not have a drink package, but dined with a lovely couple who did. What they found strange is that while the package did not include a glass of champagne, they could order mimosa's to their heart's content.
  3. i thought the Zuiderdam had an on demand in room entertainment system?
  4. Let me start off by saying this is our 3rd H A cruise and we really do love the line. Our first 2 cruises with them were flawless and we really loved it. This one "NOT SO MUCH". Here's my problem with them anymore in no special order: They use to have an actual "Internet Room" with about 15 to 20 computers-No More. They now have 3 computers and the guy in charge of it said "Oh everybody brings their own devices now". My smartphone does not have that big of a screen so this made me very UNHAPPY. Plus it was incredibly SLOW and down about 40% of the time. 2. The TV channels were once again "HORRENDOUS". I think we got 3 news channels and 3 other worthless channels. Quite frustrating on a 13 day cruise. 3. The DRINK PACKAGE---ITS A RIPOFF--HERE ME OUT-- No one told us that the dollar limit is $11 per drink. My wife and myself like Moscato wine and the only Moscato was priced at $12 a glass. I asked the Head Wine Stewart if I could just pay the one dollar difference and he said NO SIR as he would have to charge me the full $12 for a glass on that. Iam going to write a nice letter to Orlando on this as its simply RIDICULOUS. 4. We prefer on almost all occasions to have lunch and dinner up on the Lido Deck #9 and just go to the Bistro. Now this proved to be another frustrating experience. Here's what happens almost all the time. We would get in line and work our way around from the bread to the cheese to the soup and finally the place where they offer the 5 or 6 entrees. But here's the problem, you are "patiently" waiting in line thinking that your turn is just about upon you when the old geezers just walk up the the 6 entrees and crowd their way into the line and order what they want. In other words "NO MANNERS and NO ORGANIZATION" from H.A. either. This happened "daily" and I got into a couple of arguments with some of these people "continually crowding" their way in front of the line. It was quite DISGUSTING. Like "Pigs at the Trough". Then about half way thru the cruise it was reported that about 25 people had come down with the "flu". So the last 4 or 5 days everybody was "hacking, coughing, weezing, and blowing their snoz". I thought I was going to escape the situation but when we got home friday night I was stuffy and had a really bad cold. One last thing, my wife and myself decided that we are still "Too Young" for H.A. cruises. We are in the mid 60's and I would just guess that the average age of this cruise was between 75 and 80 years of age. It was like a "GERIATRIC WOODSTOCK"--I have never seen so many scooters, walkers, canes, poles, and wheel chairs in my life. We have decided to "Take a Break" and not cruise with H.A. for atleast 3 or 4 years. Enough is enough. One last thing, we signed up and took 9 shore excursions with the ship. Nothing like 30% of the 52 occupants coughing and hacking for your 5 hour tour and then taking 20 minutes or longer to get everybody on and off the bus at every stop. Just need a break and won't cruise with H.A. for a few years. We were on the Sept. 15th "Colors of Canada" cruise just for the record. Beautiful sites and I will say the food was great as it always is. Service from H.A. is always outstanding.
  5. I have to agree with you, Hank. This cruise was changed from the Rotterdam to the Zuiderdam MONTHS ago. There should have been ample time to do the preparations and planning. An excuse is usually another name for passing the buck. I suspect the horrible toilet paper (a small issue, I know) was because they didn't order enough. It was fine when we started and changed mid cruise. I also suspect that the stuff we were given, which was truly awful, is what they usually use for the crew. Sad. The captain did give good updates a couple of times a day. I did see him on the dock after the first couple of weeks. I never saw him smile or talk to anyone but we usually get off and go and don't linger around the dock area. When we approached the travel host to ask where the taxi stand was his comment was "you should pay for the Holland America shuttle". (which was more than the taxis we took) Our friends told him that the last time they did that they waited 2 hours at the other end to get back. His answer was a hmmph and turned his back on us. He mentioned more than once that we should be spending money on drinks, tours, in the shops, etc. I guess that turned me off completely to anything that may have been good. I hope that Seattle isn't forcing the captains to be sales agents. Our dinners always took 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours. I don't know how you could finish in 45 minutes unless you went to open seating when the doors open. There were a couple guys that served in the Lido that were singing every day. Good for them. That's how I remember all of them being in the past before all the work was piled on.

  7. DH and I were on the Voyage of the Vikings in 2018 (Rotterdam) and in 2019 (Zuiderdam). While we enjoyed both cruises, they were totally different. My survey was not very kind after our 2019 Voyage. I agree with the OP except in two areas: 1. We liked the captain, and saw him often. But I do recall three times he mention that we should buy a drink! Not sure if that was coming from the Hotel Director (that we never saw) or what. 2. We had a great service in the dining room. Our major disappointment was the difference in the food. Maybe we were spoiled in 2018 when lobster (as much as you wanted) was served every Gala night. Shrimp cocktail was on the menu nearly every other night in the MDR. This year, lobster was on the Gala Dinner menu just twice. However, you could purchase lobster any night for an uncharge of $25pp. Our waiter would get a special dinner or some time off for every lobster he "sold"! Another disappointment was the Cruise Director and Assistant Cruise Director (both apparently weak or novices). If one of them had a day off, didn't feel well, had dinner in the MDR, etc. there was no one else to take over for them. Many times the main stage entertainment started and/or ended by itself - no introduction and/or no wrap up. The Assistant Cruise Director did both afternoon and evening trivia. But a few times she wasn't available so trivia was cancelled.. In past years the librarian or a singer could read trivia questions. But there is no one else anymore! How about someone from guest relations or the purser perhaps? And as we disembarked, expecting to finally see the Hotel Director, and the Cruise Director, only a waiter and two women from the front desk were there to say good-bye. The entertainment was a joke. Several nights we had to decide whether to see a movie on the big screen or back in our cabin. Either some talent didn't show up or HAL in Seattle dropped the ball. (Someone mentioned the need to get used to less cocktail parties; there were none......none in 35 days.) I could mention more, but overall we had a great time on the Zuiderdam. One thing that was better in 2019 than 2018 were the larger tenders. Thus the process went faster and it also changed for 4 and 5 stars. In 2018 every one had to get a tender ticket and wait until your number was called. In 2019, 4 and 5 stars could go to the Ocean Bar, get a ticket, and then go directly to the tender! The difference from one year to another year was huge. We had talked to Hotel Director Darren 5 months before the cruise (cocktail party on Panama Canal cruise on the Zuiderdam) about how much we enjoyed the food on the Rotterdam in 2018. We all hoped it would be just as good this time. But this time we had the Lobster at a $25 uncharge. I have to wonder who made that decision? and why?
  8. When I needed cash on the Nieuw Amsterdam (2018), Oosterdam, Noordam and Zuiderdam I got it from the front desk. No ATMs. Last cruise was May 2019. ~Nancy
  9. Just got off the Zuiderdam where we had 2 gala nights. I told my husband he didn't need a suit or jacket this time. he felt very underdressed because the majority of men were wearing jackets and ties. I saw a few gowns, but most of the women were wearing fancy tops with pants. I think those who still like to dress up do. even though it's not required anymore. it looked very nice.
  10. My wife and I also sailed on the above mentioned Voyage of the Vikings. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience and would highly recommend the cruise to others. We found the crew to be especially friendly and helpful. Those working on the Lido Deck seemed to make a strong effort to be both helpful and cheerful. They also seemed to enjoy each others company. Our cabin attendants were outstanding. We found the Captain to be exceptional. He was an excellent communicator and was highly visible and friendly around the ship. He also seemed to make all the right decisions regarding the safety of the ship and the passengers, when we encountered questionable weather conditions. It must have been especially challenging and exhausting to sail through Iceberg Alley with dense fog. I can echo the comments of others when it came to Jessica our Travel Director. She was outstanding! The best! We found the Zuiderdam to be in good to excellent condition considering her age and the daily wear and tear. We especially liked her new decor. The evening shows were a hit or miss. This and the food are always a subjective discussion. Generally, we liked the food but, at times, the service was a bit slow in the main dining room. I was particularly pleased to have the Screening Room up and running. I always enjoy a good movie on the big screen and especially in the evenings. Holland America consistently has the best itineraries. The Voyage of the Vikings didn't disappoint. I can see why so many passengers have repeated this particular cruise. I just wish we had seen a polar bear or two floating by on an ice flow. Prince Christian Sund made the trip all worth it. We experienced two spectacular days of scenic cruising through the Sund, which showed off the incredible beauty of the passage. We enjoyed all of the ports of call, even if the weather wasn't always the best. In sum, we had a terrific cruise!
  11. As the OP I will gladly report if I receive a reply from Orlando. I’m not holding my breath. As was was previously reported, this cruise was originally planned for the Rotterdam. Maybe that would have helped. I’m sure they thought a larger ship would bring in more money and maybe that’s so but I think it downgraded our experience. If I remember correctly we were about 150 persons less than full. However, we have a friend currently on the Rotterdam and all is not well on there either. I am reading that that some of you on the cruise did not agree with my assessments. Here is an email I just received from our dinner mates from the 35 days. (We were on fixed seating) They were continuing on the Zuiderdam for another 47 days after we got off. I am posting this so you can see it was not my imagination. It also may explain why the passengers after us didn’t notice as many problems. From my email: “Once the Vikings cruise was over, a major change in attitude and friendliness is very apparent. We had a long discussion with the Hotel Director-- cocktails and a very formal dinner with a very Frank discussion. Since the ship was designed for 14 day cruises maximum they had huge problems with inventories, deliveries and storage and to complicate matters Seattle was asking for MUCH statistics etc. A great relief was obvious. He vented much frustrations . We can now understand some (not all) of the attitudes of senior management aboard including Koman the Maittre,d.” (End of email) I’m glad for their sake that things got better. And I’m glad that they had a chance to voice their dissatisfaction while still onboard. I don’t see how all the broken tiles and broken pipes could’ve been fixed so fast when we had to live with the buckets in several hallways for the whole 35 days. But, if they are fixed, that’s a good thing. I know I’ll never get my husband on this ship again. For the the person who asked if there was a band in the Ocean bar, the answer is no. Happy cruising everyone. No matter what ship you chose to go on, the ocean is still blue and the horizons are broad. May we all continue to enjoy for many years.
  12. My husband and I were also on the 2019 Voyage of the Viking cruise. We thought this was one of the best cruises we have been on. This made our 14th HAL cruise. We loved the ports. I am sure the crew were tired at times, but they did not show it to us. We ate early in the dining room, we were always in and out within 45 minutes. The dining room waiters always took time to talk to us and ask about our day. Maybe it was because we ate early. It was not unusual to go into the Lido for breakfast every morning and find the employees singing and laughing. There were several opportunities to meet the captain and my husband commented after the cruise that we had never seen a captain so visible on a ship. He even spoke to the captain and told him how friendly the staff were and how well the ship was ran. This was not our first cruise on the Zuiderdam and we would not hesitate to book another cruise on that ship.
  13. We sailed on Zuiderdam for the Viking Passage a year ago for the 20 Nite from CPH to NYC. I don't agree with the OP's review since our experience was completely different! Captain Bart and Darren Lewis are two of our favorites and have sailed twice with them. They were very accessible throughout the Cruise! In addition, Captain Bart kept us well informed with all that happened throughout the Cruise due to Weather as well as the aiding in a Search and Rescue of a Jumper off an Aida Ship. His "Ask the Captain" was the best we've attended! Captain Bart and Darren were at the Gangway when we would go off in the Ports. In Greenland and Isafjurdur which are Tender Ports Darren would be on land while Crew were handing out Chicken Soup and Hot Chocolate and overseeing the lines getting on the Tenders. As we Debarked the Ship in Brooklyn Terminal both were down at the end of the Gangway saying Good-bye to Passengers. We had Late Fixed Seating and the food was good to very, very good and the Waitstaff and Wine Attendant excellent! Pinnacle was excellent! The Crew was extremely friendly throughout the Ship! This was our fourth Cruise on Zuiderdam and our second after the Remodel. The Ship is in great condition! This was one of our favorite Cruises with a great Captain and HD and a wonderful Crew! I find it hard to believe so much could possibly change in a year with this Ship and this Captain!
  14. Having met Jeff on the Voyage if the Vikings years ago and also on the World Cruise. He is definitely a gentleman and doesn't brag about being Presidents Club. He has a wonderful circle of friends that he enjoys cruising with. And he is well known to the senior officers. He quite often takes extremely long cruises. And for someone who spent that much on HAL, it was nice of the Zuiderdam staff to recognize him. I would have loved to have been there. So glad you had that opportunity.
  15. Jeff F is a presidents club cruiser. He has been cruising on HAL since 2007. This year rather than do the World Cruise as usual, he chose the Zuiderdam to sail on for 258 Days. I have been following his adventures. Jeff was very complimentary of the staff and crew: “This is my last posting of this incredible and memorable journey and I would like to thank everyone who made it possible. I really love the Zuiderdam, its Officers and Crew!” “We returned to the ship early as we had a dinner engagement in the Pinnacle Restaurant with the Captain and Senior Officers...our farewell family dinner and evening with this great group of friends was very special and memorable. I will really miss this wonderful group of Officers and Crew….. just the Best!!!!” ”Today I was totally stunned when the Captain, Bart Vaartjes and Hotel Director, Darren Lewis, at the end of the Mariner Ceremony, asked me as the top Mariner to join them along with Ann & Cathy Scott on stage for a photo…. I thought this was a bit strange since they normally call up Ann & Cathy as the top Platinum Mariners to come up for a photo first before calling me up last. We got up on stage with Bart & Darren and someone said to me turn around and I was just gobsmacked! It seemed as if the majority of the officers and crew magically appeared onstage behind us… Just stunned!!!! They all stood there clapping as “We are family” played in the background…. I will never forget this moment when the Officers and Crew of the Zuiderdam came out to recognize us in this beautiful manner…. It was just like the crew fills the stage at the end of a Grand Voyage to say goodbye…. These folks mean the world to me and truly are part of our family…. I’m still overcome with such an incredible sense of joy and gratitude that words cannot describe. As I’ve said many times “Loving every day on the ms Zuiderdam”. I want to thank all the Officers and Crew for making this 8 ½ month a truly memorable journey…. But wait, we aren’t quite done yet… bring on Greenland, home of my birth!” i have also sailed with HD Darren Lewis and I found him to be very personable and funny. One should never take it personally if senior staff don’t have time to stop and say hello. I always have a wonderful cruise. That isn’t to say that I don’t notice that there are no production shows. I am sure that happened due to all the complaints over the years that shows I enjoyed were not as good as High School shows. I am unhappy that there isn’t a designed Port/Travel Guide. But none of that is going to keep me from enjoying my next cruise. Yes, I like HAL. And I especially like being on a ship where the Captain knows what he is doing and does not run into docks or run down riverboats injuring passengers. Not sure why I am bothering posting as everyone has their own opinion including me. But too often, I see someone running down a ship and then we board worried that it will be a horrible cruise because of what someone posted and then discover the opposite. Not that anyone will take my advise, but I would recommend those with such high expectations that they chose a luxury cruise on a fairly new ship. Older ship will have problems. After all you are cruising on ship which flex’s and creaks in rough seas. If you don’t want pipes that sometimes break and a ship that doesn’t creak maybe a land vacation would be better.
  16. Just got off Zuiderdam in NY this am. While most of the ship looks great, she is showing wear in different areas and I know she’s due for dry dock in December. We had a lovely cruise from Quebec to NYC. That is Rivera docked next door.
  17. As far as I know, it does go the wine stewards pool. I have asked the wine stewards as I wanted to bring a bottle to the MDR but wouldn’t have if they didn’t get credit (I didn’t tell them that). That’s just my experience though on the Prinsendam ( a few on that one 😉 ) Rotterdam and Westerdam. Prior to that there was no corkage fee as long as consumption was in your cabin. It was one reason we took an upsell on the Zuiderdam PS on a cruise - so we could host our friends with appies and wine before dinner. Remember those days 😉
  18. We were also on this 35-day Voyage of the Vikings, and had a great time. We didn't care for the fact that when we went to medical for an epi-pen, they charged us $95 to see the doctor so he could write a prescription. First they should have carried epi-pens in stock, and the doctor should have been authorized to write a prescription for any port on the itinerary. As it turned out, no pharmacy would take an RX from him in a US port, and they offered to check at the first Canadian port. Fortunately, we found our epi-pen when we further unpacked. Our fixed seating dining experience we fantastic! The cabin steward worked well too. We always present them with a list of preferences on embarkation day, so they know what to do. I think we got seated in a group of tables in full suites. I think my allergies ended up getting me matched with stronger waiters. We didn't get any final bill on Embarkation morning, and reported this to the front desk. This should come under the umbrella of the hotel director. EXC tours were across the spectrum. And EXC in Cork was very sloppy. We'd left the ship early to shop, and by the time we returned, we had to go to the end of the line for a sticker, which was all the way back inside the ship through security. They had eight buses for the same tour and time slot! Didn't care for the new EXC makeover in the what used to be the Crow's Nest. The EXC screens don't impress me. If the EXC screens provided detailed outlines of EXC tours like Princess, I would have been more impressed. Trying to dazzle us with fancy screens, and pretty pictures, and less w/ content. Someone high up had switched our Iceland ports, so we ended up in Reykjavic during a national holiday. We booked a city tour, which proved difficult because of the traffic. Someone in the seat behind me complained of a boring EXC, but we started cracking each other up by comparing at photos from our previous EXC tours. Turned into quite an entertaining EXC. Often the tour guide can make or break an EXC. The Zuiderdam creaked a lot more in the North Atlantic than I remember the Rotterdam in the same area, and there was the problem w/ broken pipes the OP mentioned. We had our water shut off once during the night. But they gave us warning, so I was able to fill every glass in our room.
  19. I was on the recent VoV and found the ship's staff from top to bottom excellent. I don't expect the captain to be the social director, but he was very accessible in the Crow's Nest when posting weather and sea condition updates. His positive attitude spread throughout, I believe. I agree that the dining room staff is overworked, and the delay between courses got worse as the cruise went on. I don't know if that was a kitchen problem or a dining room problem. But every year the stewards seem to have more and more tables. My last two cruises were Grand Voyages and they are different. Others have stated some differences; I would add all the instructors (watercolor, bridge, tai chi, etc.), local chefs joining for a week or two, etc. If the VoV were always on the Zuiderdam or similar sized ship, the price would come down. When I originally booked, it was on the Rotterdam. The change in ship (reported accurately above) meant there were many more cabins to fill. So last-minute bargain pricing changed the equation. Everyone has their own opinion, but I thought it was a great cruise. I have 4 more HAL cruises booked (two worlds and one grand included). Yes, I wish some things were different. But I just wanted to say the OP's experience wasn't mine. (I reported my experiences, good and no-so, in my blog at www.writerondeck.com.)
  20. Zuiderdam looks good in NY. Here three sisters will be in Ketchikan later today.
  21. The Eurodam and Zuiderdam (and many other HAL ships) do not have Vista Suites, while the two newest HAL ships do (newst ones have Veranda, Vista and Signature). Thus the big difference from the Veranda and Signature cabins on the Eurodam and Zuiderdam.
  22. I am looking at a website that has tons of cabin pics, and we have shared pics for others to see, too. Looking at the Eurodam and Zuiderdam Suites, they look larger than a Verandah, larger than what has been described here. Am I missing something? We love a Verandah and still would not move to a Suite.
  23. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 27th, 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.

  24. We usually booked one after season cause the rates we good and we would go diving but we're not doing that much any more . We haven't been to NY but we were suppose to do it on a TA from London in the Fall after we did our cruise . Pat had her accident a couple of weeks before we were scheduled to go . We hope to do it next year on the Regal in the Spring and the Zuiderdam in August . It will have Norway , Iceland and Greenland . This year the same cruise got a Dorian blow by near Halifax which took the brunt of the storm after wiping out Grand Bahama . They did change our final port from NY to Boston next year . So when's the Baltic cruise ?
