  1. On the Zuiderdam in a couple of weeks. Booked thru a TA. Does she order me a soda card or do I call HAL? I can't do it online as our internet is not reliable. (I'm using my neighbours right now).
  2. If you want a more traditional ship, select Vista Class (Noordam, Oosterdam, Zuiderdam, Westerdam) or Signature Class (Eurodam/Nieuw Amsterdam). The newest ships, Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, have narrow Promenade Deck with no room for deck chairs. Of course, the R and S Class ships (the smaller, older sisters in the fleet) have the wider decks too, but limited music venues. If music is "your thing", the newer ships may be your cup of tea, as they have multiple venues, such a BB Kings Blues Club, Billboard On Board, Lincoln Center Stage, and Rolling Stone Rock Room. All the Vista and Signature Class ship have these venues also, except for Rolling Stone Rock Room. If you enjoy specialty dining, Vista Class has Canaletto's and Pinnacle Grill. Signature Class added Tamarind's while retaining the other two fee venues. The Pinnacle Class (two newest ships) has all the previously mentioned restaurants plus Sel de Mer. Free choices include New York Deli and Dutch Café, a real hit that serves Dutch specialties. If excellent service floats your boat, you can't go wrong on any HAL ship. Its crews are known for their welcoming, warm, gracious hospitality and service, which keeps a legion of HAL devotees returning to cruise with them again and again. Hope this helps.
  3. If you enjoy walks and sitting on the Promenade Deck as we do, the Vista Class ships are what you want. Ships like the Zuiderdam, Eurodam, Noordam and a few others have the full walk- around promenade decks with the teak steamer loungers. All the ships built in at least the last 10+ years all have promenade decks but the views are blocked by the lifeboats, something about SOLAS rules that the lifeboats have to be on the same deck that you would board in case of emergency. One of my favorite things I love about cruising is reading a good book while sitting in one of HALs steamer chairs on the promenade deck watching the ocean go by.

  5. Now that the pass is available on line, we found it less expensive than on the ship the first day. For instance, our 16 night cruise on Zuiderdam in April/May, 2019 - Online the 14 + day pass was $429. On board they were charging $515. We have another 16 night cruise coming up and are definitely going to pre-purchase the pass. It is listed again as $429 for 14+ days. This is on Westerdam.
  6. We are arriving on the Zuiderdam on Tuesday Oct 15. We have purchased Hop on Hop off tickets from Cityview Trolley Tours. We need to get from the cruiseport to the starting point at 296 State St to redeem our voucher and get on the trolley. We would like to take public transportation if possible. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  7. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated September 20th, 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. 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).

  9. We were on the Zuiderdam on the Voyage of the Vikings in August, 2019. We missed two ports because of weather, a tender port in Greenland and St. John's, Nova Scotia. On our final bill we had a refund of about $10 per person for the Greenland stop and $115 per person for St. John's.
  10. On the last two HAL cruises, Westerdam and Zuiderdam, we met a production supervisor who does handle all the entertainment from show lounge to Billboard, Lincoln Center, etc. The Cruise director's job was no longer a major staff position. However, the EXC guide, port lecturer, etc, was vital for those of us in new territory in search of answers. If this position is given to the CD who gives canned speeches in lieu of actual knowledge, then please tell Seattle that this plan is bad for us and therefore bad for them as well.
  11. We did revisit Saint Petersburg this on the Zuiderdam . There seemed to be an interest in Moscow so we thought that we would show some photos of our last visit to Moscow and our last visit to St. Petersburg in June . The most beautiful churches that we have seen have been in Russia . Here are 3 from a visit to Moscow . Kazan Cathedral on Red Square The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the tallest Russian Orthodox church in the world But most people will think of Saint Basil's It seem like it always rains when we go there
  12. Christmas/New Year's 2020 partial Panama Canal was over $500 per person in taxes and port fees when we booked several months ago. I'm still shaking my head over the exorbitant amount, but we either pay it or we don't go. I haven't investigated what other lines are charging because we aren't interested in sailing with any of them. Ten years ago when we traveled to Panama Canal on Zuiderdam, our total price of that cruise was slightly over $800 per person with all taxes and fees. What a difference 10 years can make.
  13. Thank you for expanding my vocabulary. I hadn't noticed "enormodam" either, but it's a good word. I like the R/S ships, but my favorite class is Vista because I love the spa with the hydropool. And balconies are less expensive than on the R and S ships. Haven't tried enormodams yet. Tried the K and didn't like it. Gave it a second try because of itinerary and just didn't enjoy that ship. So my next cruise is on Zuiderdam, and I'm hoping that ship will make me love HAL again. If HAL would put a proper hydropool on the R and S ships, that would be perfect. (I know, I know, where would they squeeze it in, but that's my wish list) To go back to the title of this thread, as others have commented, HAL doesn't appear to have a direction beyond the trend to larger ships, a trend I don't embrace.
  14. I'm on Zuiderdam now and will check it out. .
  15. Happy anniversary! And what is your favorite restaurant in PEI? If you are debarking the Zuiderdam in NYC next Friday, I am boarding her then.
  16. I am on the Zuiderdam next week and was offered Club Orange for that sailing.
  17. Thanks for starting this thread. Where was the 3 star reception held and what time was it? Also what are the current times for fixed dining? I will be doing a partial Panama Canal transit on Zuiderdam next month.

  19. Enjoy your voyage. Are the leaves on the trees changing? I imagine they might be where you are now. How lovely it must be! We were on the Zuiderdam in August for the Voyage of the Vikings. It's been two weeks and I miss it being on board. If you see MDR servers Roy, Denny, Iga, or Wayon, please tell them Jean and Ralph send best regards.
  20. I don't see a Pinnacle class ship doing a partial canal cruise. The new locks are a lot more expensive, so I wonder how many people would want to spend more money just for a quick in and out. Ship/tech geeks, maybe. People who want to brag they've been through the new locks? But is that enough to sustain a regular schedule the way Zuiderdam does? A full transit between seasons seems more likely to me.
  21. We have had inside cabins on several HA ships and have found that size varies in the same category. We just cruised on the Zuiderdam in the “I” inside cabin #6071 and was surprised about how large it was (at least it seemed so to us). Drawer storage space was a bit limited but that wasn’t a problem for us.

  23. When we sailed Zuiderdam two years ago, our first offer came at about 22 days out. We passed on the first and jumped on the second which came at 12 days out.
