  1. According to HAL website, Zuiderdam is also stopping in Bermuda April 2019.
  2. We started sailing on HAL in the mid 90s, and it seemed that every show was an American patriotic show or music from the 30s, 40s and 50s (Lawrence Welk). On our Zuiderdam cruise this month the music was mostly from the 60s and 70s. Both times they were trying to appeal to an audience of people primarily in their 60s and 70s. Perhaps HAL is becoming more like Princess with several small venues around the ship with entertainment. Hopefully the singers and dancers productions will not be dropped. Like other cruise lines the guest performers were hit and miss.
  3. Shelves empty....why....one of the staff on Zuiderdam 2 weeks ago was telling me about the huge number of books being routinely stolen on HAL ships. Especially, the more expensive...who is to blame for the elimination of the librairies !!!!!

  5. We are just off the Zuiderdam and saw the Captain several times. He was always out and about the ship. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Eurodam, Oosterdam, Westerdam and Zuiderdam are advertised in their 2018 policy book (Know Before You Go) as having non-smoking casinos. The casino was non-smoking on Nieuw Amsterdam in May, too, and I booked another trip on it as a result. It seems they're making them non-smoking after they go through drydock and get updates. Odd that their newest ship (Koningsdam) isn't one of those but most of these smoking policy changes happened after its debut. They have a brand new ship sailing in December and the policy still seems TBA. Hopefully they'll keep it non-smoking on the inside.
  7. We returned recently from the Viking Passage on the Zuiderdam, and I logged on to HAL's web site about a week ago to review the two HAL excursions we had taken (one was excellent, btw, and the other had one of the worst guides we've ever had, anywhere), but could not find any way to post a review. I know that functionality used to exist, as I recall seeing reviews many, many months ago when we were planning this trip. Finally, I called the HAL shorex desk, and they told me that when HAL launched their new web site, the option for guests to post reviews was not carried over to the new site. They are hoping this functionality will be restored. :eek:

  9. Super successful non smoking casinos by gaming industry giants are now operating in states (eg. Maryland) which ban casino smoking. I am a frequent player and will only sail on ships with non smoking casinos. Am currently on Zuiderdam and enjoying the non smoking casino.
  10. On our recent Viking Passage cruise on the Zuiderdam, during several lunches I saw guys in the buffet wearing bath robes. (It was pretty much a cold weather cruise, I think they came over from the spa.) I found it quite off-putting to be standing in line for food next to a guy in a bathrobe. One day, I happened to be at Guest Services regarding something else, and mentioned this. They told me it was against the rules to wear bathrobes in the buffet and seemed perturbed that the rules weren't being enforced.
  11. We are going on the Zuiderdam and have booked 10016 and glad to read your review. We usually book balcony or oceanview but balcony was too expensive and oceanview was only by guarantee and don't want to risk 35 days at sea in a room with noise above or below us. Were you able to put your suitcases under your bed with those drawers under there? Would appreciate any other info you have. Thanks. Deb
  12. On the Zuiderdam last month, we purchased an unlimited plan directly on our devices.
  13. Zuiderdam November 2017 smoke free casino after the dry dock. Now I’m concerned about the Westerdam next year.
  14. Jim, I can't list them (all) but here is what you do: Go to HAL website, click on The Experience, choose Our Ships, scroll to the bottom and either save the Deckplan pdf or take snips of Deck 1 and Deck 2 and print them to the same scale in word processor (Deck 1 is 0.1-0.2 shorter than Deck 2 if you enlarge them to 10" long to print). Stack the pages and hold up to light or window; line up the elevators. I have noticed that the aft large insides (the K's on Zuiderdam) fill up fast. They are under the entrance to the dining room but not significant amount of the galley. Use HAL's own deckplans and not a third party's because others may not have kept up with changes like the moving of BBKing's to the Queen's Lounge/ATK. Note that the band-stand of BBKings is portside of the lounge.
  15. It totally makes a difference. The HAL ships are moving away from the obsolete "minutes" packages to unlimited packages. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that by the time you board, what you'll find available are the unlimited packages. I sure hope so. The internet on the Zuiderdam a few weeks ago was so slow that if we'd been paying by the minute it would have been even more ridiculous. Enjoy your TA!
  16. Westerdam will be at the CT dock and Noordam at the AS dock from 1300-2200. Tuesday's weather will not be any better than Monday's. There is a 100% chance of rain with a quarter of an inch predicted. High will be 55F/13C and low 46F/8C. Sunrise is at 6:49 am and sunset at 6:48 pm. The only other ship in port is Norwegian Bliss at the AJ dock from 1400-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Westerdam on Tuesday, October 2. For the addicts: The FLL sail-away season begins on October 17th but there will be some HAL sightings before that. October 3rd - Zuiderdam in New York City from 0700-2000. http://www.nyharborwebcam.com/ http://www.portnywebcam.com/ October 15 - Volendam in Aruba from 0800-2300. http://www.portarubawebcam.com/ October 16 - Veendam in Port Canaveral 0800-1700. http://www.portcanaveralwebcam.com/ (I will post these again next week.)
  17. This is what we always do. We also sailed on Zuiderdam in larger inside cabin. It was a very nice cabin.

  20. :') We too have booked a J inside cabin on the Zuiderdam. I've always sorta wanted to try one, and when DH didn't want to spring for a very nicely located verandah, I said this was the time -- rather than an obscured oceanview on the upper promenade (behind a tender). I intend to find that bridge cam channel and bring a couple LED nightlights. And find all the good spots for reading during the day, hopefully near the Exploration Cafe, drinking my EX4 included lattes.
  21. Just checked my booking on the "Zuiderdam" - Dec. 16 - 26 - with the Endless Summer Promo - it's $358 less plus $75. on board credit for a like cabin on the opposite side of the ship from where I am currently. I booked on HAL's site during a Top 10 Sailing Promo and had to pay the full fare at the time of booking. I now have a call into my HAL personal consultant to see if I can get some sort of adjustment. We'll see - I am a four-star Mariner (better mean something)!.
  22. The J cabins on Main Deck were my favorite cabins. We, however, avoided those cabins under what use to be the Northern Lights Night Club (now the Gallery Bar) as one could heard loud music on the Main Deck under the club. I was afraid to book a J cabin on a recent Zuiderdam cruise because I was afraid with the changing of the Queen's Lounge to BB King's, the same problem would occur with cabins under BB King's.
  23. Debbie, ask the following cruiser, they commented on K10016 Zuiderdam
  24. Hey Debbie, or John, haha Where are you going on the Zuiderdam? Greets Frans
  25. We don't dock in Aruba until 1:00pm on the Zuiderdam next February. Will the Pinnacle Grill be open for lunch that day?(yn)
