  1. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 23rd, 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).

  2. today is Event Organizers Day, TV Talk Show Host Day, and National Canning Day "I can't complain, but sometimes I still do." -- Joe Walsh Meal suggestion for today - Pork Loin Roast Drink of the Day - Mimosa Wine of the day - Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan vintage 2016 At Sea Caribbean Eurodam destination Sint Eustatius eta 10/26 Nieuw Amsterdam destination Sint Eustatius eta 10/24 Balboa Anchorage Koningsdam Brindisi Italy Anchorage Zuiderdam Katakolon Greece Anchorage Noordam Torquay GB Nieuw Statendam Volendam Westerdam Zaandam Willemstad Oosterdam
  3. UPDATE! As I anticipated (4) 14 day Panama Canal sailings have been added to Zuiderdam’s winter 2021-22 schedule : 1/2/22 SAN-FLL, 1/16/22 FLL-SAN, 1/30/22 SAN -FLL AND 2/13/22 FLL-SAN. There is still a gap in her schedule between 11/27/21 to 12/23/21 (26 days). This would allow for a 11-12 day trip to Grand Bahama Shipyard for dry dock followed by a 14-15 night westbound Panama Canal from FLL-SAN. When that gap is filled in Zuiderdams schedule will be complete.
  4. today is Clean Up the Earth Day, National Nut Day, and National Color Day The reward of a thing well done is to have done it. -- Emerson Meal suggestion for today - Perfect Broiled Salmon Drink of the Day - Bronx Cocktail Wine of the day - Château Ducru-Beaucaillou St.-Julien vintage 2015 At Sea Atlantic Westerdam destination Torquai At Sea Caribbean Eurodam destination Sint Eustatius eta 10/26 Nieuw Amsterdam destination Sint Eustatius eta 10/24 Balboa Anchorage Koningsdam Brindisi Italy Anchorage Zuiderdam Katakolon Greece Anchorage Noordam Torquay GB Nieuw Statendam Volendam Zaandam Willemstad Oosterdam
  5. Carnival is is booking through spring of 2023 actually. They are a different brand with a different market segment. It’s not unusual for their client base to book 15, 18, 24+ months out for a 3 or 4 day cruise and want to pay $25/month to pay it off. Additionally far fewer of their ships change itineraries or home ports seasonally. Most operate the same itinerary pattern from the same port year after year after year, so easier to offer bookings further out. By comparison most HAL Caribbean itineraries see very few bookings outside of 5-6 months prior to sailing, and even then the bulk of their Caribbean capacity sells within 120 days or less to departure. HAL cruisers are more likely to make 1or 2 total payments. There’s just not the imperative for HAL to release Caribbean sailings as far out as their competition. That said I think HAL are waiting to release Caribbean sailings until they get everything else in their portfolio settled. They just released some Sea of Cortez and Hawaii/Tahiti sailings on Zuiderdam for fall 2021 - spring 2022 last week that replace recent cancellations from the Volendam being redeployed. There are still gaps in her schedule that I believe will eventually be filled in with full Panama Canal transits. They are still working on reaccomodation of 2021 Grand South America guests to the 2022 Grand South America sailing (which has yet to be made publicly available). They just made changes to Nieuw Statendam and Rotterdam summer 2021 Europe sailings, and the list goes on. All indicators point to 4 ships being deployed for the full fall 2021 to spring 2022 Caribbean season - Rotterdam VII, Nieuw Statendam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Eurodam. 2 will most likely be used for 7 day Eastern/Western alternating cruises, 1 on 10&11 day Southern Caribbean sailings and 1 for 10/11 day partial Panama Canal Transits - all round trip Ft Lauderdale. There maybe a few 10-14 day cruises on Zaandam/Volendam to fill gaps between other sailings in their schedules, but those are likely one offs. HAL is unlikely to return to Tampa for 2021/22. This is a pretty standard and predictable schedule for HAL, so if you know what you are looking for look at what’s on the schedule for Winter/Spring 2021, know that fall 21 to spring 22 will likely be a cut and paste and just be patient, it will eventually be bookable
  6. When we were on the Zuiderdam transatlantic from Ft. Lauderdale to Copenhagen in April/May, 2019, our first stop was Bermuda. We'd had a table for 4 to ourselves up to that point, but were joined by a couple who'd boarded the ship that afternoon. They lived near Hamilton. I asked if these arrangements were hard to come by, and they told me that their travel agent books cruises from Bermuda for them all the time. 🙂 It is probably not too difficult to make an arrangement to board in Madeira.

  10. Zuiderdam seldom visits FP waters so I have no idea of their schedule while visiting. Patrick is a good choice but you will spend considerable time in the boat. I'm sure you will visit Moorea so I would suggest going to Coco Beach via boat shuttle and enjoy the motu and have lunch at their lovely beach cafe. Then snorkel all you want from the beach. https://coco-beach-moorea.business.site/
  11. We will be on the HAL ship Zuiderdam. I am doing the snorkle tour with Patrick on Bora bora and I have already spent the night in an over the water bungalow at the hilton moorea on our 40th anniversary cruise. I was hoping to find a motu on one of the islands to just hang out, snorkle right off the beach and have lunch for the day.
  12. @crusinbanjo @KirkNC Carnival Corp/HAL have made the future of the brand clear starting with the launch of the Zuiderdam in 2002. They have had nearly 20 years (since delivery of the Amsterdam in 2000) to develop & build ships in the size of the Prinsendam or S/R class vessels if they wanted to. Instead we got 4 Vista Class, 2 Signature Class and at least 3 Pinnacle Class. The writing has been on the wall for 20 years, and sadly the COVID crisis has only accelerated it. The future of HAL is going to be vessels of 2000 passengers and larger. They will continue to be marketed and sold as a mainstream premium brand. They will lose some of the specialized/boutique itineraries that only smaller vessels can operate. They will lose some of the passenger base that will only sail the smaller ships. Carnival Corp seems okay with all of the above for the HAL brand.
  13. I wish hal had scheduled zaandam to do the hawaii/ tahiti cruise in 2022 instead of moving the passengers to zuiderdam!!!
  14. today is National Meatloaf Appreciation Day, No Beard Day, and World Toy Camera Day The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. --Walt Disney Meal suggestion for today - Baked Spaghetti Drink of the Day - Vesper Wine of the day - Château Gloria St.-Julien vintage 2015 Balboa Anchorage Koningsdam Brindisi Italy Anchorage Zuiderdam Caracas Bay Oosterdam Katakolon Greece Anchorage Noordam Torquay GB Nieuw Statendam Volendam Westerdam Zaandam Willemstad Eurodam Nieuw Amsterdam
  15. My fear going to Hawaii/ Tahiti on Zuiderdam is that in the 7 tender ports it will take so long to get the 2000 passengers off that it won't be worth us standing in line for tickets! In most of the ports the ship leaves at 5 pm.
  16. No, not Captain "Silence on Deck" van Eerten! (I've been hoping he may show up on Zuiderdam...)
  17. today is National Pasta Day, Sweetest Day, and Wear Something Gaudy Day Ask not for whom the telephone bell tolls ... if thou art in the bathtub, it tolls for thee.

  18. Thanks Ann. I think the B2B cruise on the Zuiderdam is a fabulous replacement for the Rotterdam sailing 😄. Of course, I’m prejudiced 😉 Delighted to make the change and add your 3 wonderful cruises for you 🙂
  19. Hi, Jacqui, Thanks for doing this; I have a few changes: 1. We have cancelled our August 1, 2021 Rotterdam sailing. 2. We have booked the October 29, 2021 Zuiderdam Mediterranean Romance 12-day cruise, back to back with 3. November 10, 2021 Zuiderdam Spanish Farewell TA 17-day cruise! 4. And we have booked the QM2 crossing to Southampton from NY on October 15, 2021

  22. I am guessing the first cruise is on the Zuiderdam? Correct? Could you please let me know I am right and what ship you are on N Statendam? for the TA? Thanks 🙂
  23. Some of the Zuiderdam sailings for Fall 2021 through Spring 2022 are now bookable in the POLAR travel agent system - HOWEVER - they do not yet appear on the consumer website. Zuiderdam arrives FLL on 11/27 from Europe and has a 26 day "blank" in her schedule until 12/23 - assuming a trip to Freeport Drydock (11/12 days) followed by a Westbound Panama Canal sailing (14/15 days). Her last Drydock was Dec 2019, so the timing is right for another visit. 12/23/21 - 1/2/22 10 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN Then a 56 day "blank" in her schedule from January 2nd to February 27th, which is just enough time for 4 Panama Canal Sailings of 14 Days each SAN-FLL, FLL-SAN, SAN-FLL, FLL-SAN. This is not confirmed, but is logical given the loss of full Canal transits due to the Sale of the Rotterdam and redeployment of Zaandam. 2/27/22 - 4/3/222 35 Days Hawaii/South Pacific R/T SAN 4/3/22 - 4/13/22 10 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN 4/13/22 - 4/22/22 9 Day Sea of Cortez R/T SAN - also bookable as a 14 Day SAN-YVR itinerary (Sea of Cortez and Pacific Coastal) This confirms she WILL NOT return to the Caribbean Sunfarer/Wayfarer (partial canal Transits) of the past few years, nor will she go to Tampa. This also tees her up to go to Alaska for Summer 2022 along with Oosterdam, Noordam, Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Konigsdam.
