  1. Bye, bye Zaandam, Volendam, Zuiderdam, Oosterdam..
  2. I was on Zuiderdam's recent cruise to the southern Caribbean and Panama Canal. It was a good trip overall. I have some observations--good, bad, and random. And if anyone has questions, I'll try to answer them. This is my second time for this itinerary on Zuiderdam and my fourth or fifth time on the ship overall. I do love the vista class! The ship looks great. The current decor is so much nicer than the old color scheme. I'm glad to see the end of that bright colored ripple pattern carpet. Everything was clean and looked well cared for. My cabin stewards were good. They managed to get in and clean while I was at breakfast and do the evening turndown while I was at dinner. I had a corner aft, and I've heard some reports that the stewards aren't as good as the ones who have a whole row of Neptune Suites, but that didn't happen on this cruise. (On K'dam, yes, but never on Zuidy) The TV is enormous. For those who want to know about connections, no they aren't within reach. I would LOVE to have hooked up my laptop to see my pictures on the big screen, but no go. The automatic nightlights were installed in a refit. There's one at the desk and also one in the dressing area. One night as I was trying to fall asleep, I stretched my foot out from under the covers and turned on the night light! One comment on my cabin. If you have a chance to pick an aft on other than deck 6, do so. I've now had a corner aft on 5, 6, 7, and 8. 6 is definitely much smaller than the others. And it has fewer closets. I recall that on 7, there were the closets in the dressing area and closets along the wall by the side of the bed. This one has only the dressing room closets. That was fine for me by myself, but two people having to get clothes out of the dressing area closets at the same time could find it difficult. 6 also has the least cover over the balcony, except maybe 4, which is largely open. I don't mean to sound whiny, it was still a NS and still had a good balcony. But there are better aft wraps if you can get them. Food is subjective, but I found the MDR food at dinner to be very good. I was at a 6 top, fixed dining, and a few times others found the beef to be tough, but my choices were fine. Prime rib was always a good choice. Beef wellington looked dry. We did make fun of the misnamed salads. A "pear and apple" salad was greens with tiny chunks of apple and pear. We had fun spearing the bits and guessing if they were pear or apple. When I read "apple salad," I'm thinking something like waldorf, not a green salad with a bit of apple garnish. Although all 6 of us were in Neptune suites, we were not given the while menu. After a few days I asked to see it, and the waiter managed to dig one up. It's the only way you can find out what the extra CO entree is. The concierges don't know. I was offered the CO menu only one other time, and nobody else at the table ever got one. I did have the CO item one night. Scallops and grits, very nice. I don't think the other people at my table were aware of CO, and the couple who were 3-star didn't know about the discount on the wine packages. I don't love the Lido, but I do like the Lido salad bar, although I undo my healthy start by adding stuff from the taco bar. We joked about it one night at dinner when we discovered that we were using the same technique for the chips--reach across the bowl and under the top layer to get "fresh chips" using the tongs, of course. I usually took my salad lunch back to my balcony to enjoy it in peace and quiet. The ship was not sailing full. The only time an elevator arrived with other passengers in it was going to dinner. Nothing ever felt crowded. The night before the Canal, the host of the Pinnacle was trolling the dining room trying to get people to book a Pinnacle lunch. He pointed out that our table had 3* and 4* Mariners and we get a discount. So I weakened and booked lunch. There were only two couples there plus me. One of the couples must be super-frequent pinnacle guests because the chef came out to talk to them about the fish at sel de mer, then another chef came out to talk to them, and then a third. Nobody came to my table or to the other couple's table to suck up. But that was OK, I was busy with my lunch. Ohhhh, that Pinnacle burger! It's everything posters here have said it is. I swear, it's half a cow, but so so so good! Fortunately, there was a salad entree at dinner so I could do dietary penance. "Brazilian grilled shrimp salad" was a lot of greens and 3 (yes THREE) less than jumbo shrimp. (see comments on salads above 🙄) Laundry was fast, and twice it came back with a little note thanking me for letting them "care for the clothes you wear." Never saw that before. The paper flood still exists. You have to go to the front desk or Neptune Lounge to get a newspaper, but you can get one. The usual ads for future cruises, spa treatments, shopping ashore, shopping on the ship, etc arrive whether you want them or not. They waste all that paper, but they don't let the stewards give the towel animals eyes. Really? A pair of 1-cm circles of paper will destroy the earth????? I got tired of sad blind towel animals, so I cut circles out of the blue strip along the side of a when and where, and I had lovely blue-eyed animals after that. The frog is my new favorite! The thermal suite was wonderful, as always. It definitely wasn't sold out. I guess it speaks to HAL's demographic, but there were quite a few of us walking in the water to soothe excursion-tired knees and hips! And for those who want to know, the price for the 11-day cruise, if you buy on board was about $250 for a single and $400 for a couple. A one-day pass was offered for $40 for the day. Entertainment was, on average, I guess I'd say average. Some good, some not. Lincoln Center were wonderful and full every performance. BBKing were good musicians but too loud for me. I listened from a hallway a bit, but that's all I could do. I didn't go to Billboard. Mainstage is thin. A lecture on the history of HAL is not my idea of evening entertainment. That's a daytime talk. Illusionist was meh, standard stuff and too much "ta da!" 50s group "Runaround Kids" (I think that was there name) were a bit too loud and tried a bit too hard and came off as frantic. DH and I used to joke about a line from Law & Order when Jack says "It was the 60s, you had to be there." And maybe that's why I didn't care for them. They were trying so hard to be 50s cool, but I just didn't buy it. Piano player was excellent. He did boogie-woogie, classic 50s rock and roll (nailed it without appearing to try too hard), movie music, jazz, even Bohemian Rhapsody. He had his own back-up group who were given solos to show off. All seriously good musicians. I didn't go to the comedian and didn't hear anything about him. And the dance group, but I'd already seen them, so I didn't go. Internet was fast when I could get on. I travel with a laptop and HAL's system hates Microsoft. Pretty funny considering their classes are all microsoft. It just would not let me log in. So if you travel with a device running Windows, go to the computers at the atrium and talk to the computer guy and hope you get someone like the guy on Zuidy. He admitted he sometimes had problems with HAL's public computers, which run windows 10. He poked at my laptop, found an alternative to "login" and when he got to a stable page, bookmarked it for me. Worked great after that. So forget HAL's instructions, go right to the guy who can help you. There was one cooking demo, part of the port-to-table program. I didn't get to that. No word on hands-on. That's the good and random. Ports and rants to follow...

  7. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated February 7th, 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. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated February 28th, 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.

  10. Happy Sunday-and all those special days as well! We started the day with heavy rains, but it cleared up by mid-morning. Thanks for the celebration note, Roy! Our first indoor service today went very well with lots of positive comments afterwards. I hope that your computer issues are soon resolved. Love the quote! My oldest grandson has always lived with his single-parent mom. Despite she and my son never living together, she included our entire family from the get-go. In fact, the day he was born, we were on the Zuiderdam in Alaska. My mom and my sister visited them in the hospital the next day, and none of us had ever met her before that. What a gem-she had had a C-section and just opened her arms and her heart to our entire family, despite being a shy introvert. She's always said "every child needs as many people to love them as they can get". We consider her our "bonus daughter" and I know that she considers us similarly. She and my son co-parent (generally) nicely, and she is a blessing to all, including my granddaughter (half-sibling to the GS). The four of them often do things together as a family. Love and relationships for the kids is paramount. ❤️ @Seasick Sailor your Claudio did a wonderful job with your gardens! Gerry, as I understand it, they plan for our for late September, October, November in order to be effective during the worst of the flu season months. Yesterday when the son brought the youngest GS, he brought along the only close-to-us granddog (Bernese Mountain) Uno was very excited to be at Grandma and Grandpa's house, but I think most happy to be with my daughter who lives with us. She lived with him when he was a pup and did the early training, so loves visiting her. 😉 I'm not sure what this week has in store for us, but sending prayers for those who need them-especially those suffering from the fire and smoke on the west coast. Blessings to everyone! Be well. Stay safe. Be kind. And, as Dr. Sharkawy say's mind the W's. #WearAMask. #WashYourHands #WatchYourDistance.
  11. 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.

  12. Does anyone know if there are indoor cycling (spin) classes on the Zuiderdam?
  13. A beautiful but bittersweet photo. I am just supposed to have left the Saguenay from the Crystal Serenity and spending a few days in the Montreal area before boarding the Zuiderdam on September 17. Roy
  14. Good morning. This is moon rise about 7:15 pm from the Zuiderdam on this day last year in the St. Lawrence on the way to Saguenay. To the eye moon was even bigger than pic could show. Captain had announced it was a special sight not to be missed. A big crowd took cocktails outside. Prayers and cheers.
  15. Yes, I know there is a "single smoking thread;" however, I find conflicting information, so I would like to ask for up-to-date information please for those able to contribute only current information. Please--I'm only inquiring about the status of smoking in HAL's casinos. Thank you. The smoking thread references HAL FAQs which states, "Onboard Zuiderdam, Oosterdam, Westerdam, Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam the casinos are non-smoking." In HAL's current "Know Before You Go" document, it states, "Designated areas for active slot players in Casinos. Oosterdam, Eurodam and Zuiderdam casinos are completely non-smoking." So which is correct and current information? Does anyone have up-to-date information about which HAL casinos are completely smoke-free? Thank you!

  16. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated February 21st, 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).

  18. Next cruise up is Zuiderdam March 2021. Even when all this started never in my wildest dreams did I think there would be a possibility this cruise wouldn't take place. Now, I'm not so sure. And if it does under what conditions? Final payment date is November 7th. Wow that's fast approaching. As many have said...I'll reevaluate then.

  20. I wish I had sailed the Rotterdam V. I have heard only good of this classic ship. I was once in line to get on the R Class Volendam and a man said to me that this was the last of the Holland ships. He pointed the Zuiderdam at Pier 26 and described the Zuiderdam as the first of the Carnival ships for the Holland America Line..
  21. This week last year I shared a great chocolate milkshake and DiveIn burger with DS on Zuiderdam. I had seen others enjoying the shake and a passing waiter said he would get us one from the lido bar! Served in a tall pilsner glass with a squirt of whipped cream it was perfect. Would love to be there right now. Only a year to wait! Thanks Rich and everyone. Prayers and Cheers!
  22. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated February 14th, 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).

  24. Has anyone had a signature cabin below the pool or lido market. Is there a lot of morning noises. we generally awake about 9 am. looking for input for april cruise. Thanks
  25. Thank you everyone for the beautiful and memorable tributes to 09/11. Prayers for all on the care lists, and a special prayer for Himself for a successful procedure today. This may be a little long, but I need to share today. On 09/11, my husband and I set up a Red Cross shelter for those on planes that were "set down" in Denver. The resiliency and courage of the American and Canadian travelers who were faced with figuring out a way home amazed both of us. It was an awe inspiring week to witness such ingenuity, especially since no planes were flying. Then we were deployed to NYC for 5 weeks, where we worked in a Red Cross Respite Center right at Ground Zero serving policemen, firemen, and construction workers working on "The Pile." During that time I grew to love the people of New York and I will never forget the kindnesses we were shown. It was such an honor to be able to serve our country in this way. My husband died in 2017 of a 09/11 related disease. Last year I took the Zuiderdam re-positioning cruise from Quebec to Fort Lauderdale. I picked that cruise simply for the opportunity to spend the day in NYC. I got to go to the 09/11 Memorial and Museum, which was a special highlight of the trip. It brought me some closure that I will always treasure. Sorry to make this so long, but I felt that sharing this was important since so many of you have expressed such beautiful sentiments. Thank you!
