  3. DH and I were given a complimentary dinner in Canaletto on our Zuiderdam Transatlantic cruise in April/May. We'd not been impressed with the venue when we'd tried it a couple of years prior, but since this one was free, we decided to give it a go. We did not enjoy it. The flavors of the food were only okay, but our shared sea bass entrée (large plate to share) was so miniscule that it would have easily passed for an appetizer for one in the MD. The fish was dry, and I can say that it was NOT sea bass. We felt like this "dinner" would have passed better as tapas. We ate early, at 6 PM. When 9 PM rolled around, we were both hungry again and ordered sandwiches from room service. If HAL gives us another one of these complimentary dinners, well - No, thank you.
  4. Did some rough calculations based on Zuiderdam's plant, and the original itinerary to go the 162 nm from Kiel to Copenhagen at 10 knots (16 hours, 2pm to 6am?) and the actual steaming of 16 knots (10 hours, 10pm to 8am). The difference in fuel consumption is about 14mt ($4200), or an increase of 12% in consumption.
  5. A big thanks for your first hand account of this most recent incident. As someone who was on that earlier Zuiderdam cruise with you (as you know), I am starting to think you must be the jinx. 🤣 Seriously, I was glad to read from your post how well HAL handled the issue and made things as convenient as possible for disembarking passengers who needed to make new arrangements, catch tight flights, etc. It was very different on that earlier cruise -- no offer of phone or internet access for passengers who had to rearrange things from the middle of the North Atlantic, and apparently no notification to the necessary folks on the ground of our un-scheduled docking in Brooklyn, which meant no taxis and created a total mess that morning. So yes, we were a couple of disembarking guests with those "headaches" you mentioned, and I'm glad HAL did a better job this time around!
  6. An irony in this--I suppose they will chalk it up to a loss for a greater good--I wonder how much extra fuel Zuiderdam used making up 6 of the 8 hours they were detained on the way to Copenhagen. Roy
  7. There is a long discussion on the HAL board about the Zuiderdam being blocked in Kiel.
  8. Go to Roll Calls on the main board, then Holland America and then Zuiderdam. You will end up here. Just press the blue button that says “Start New Topic” (exactly as you did here to ask the question) and you are off to the races.

  10. The Zuiderdam has two lovely itineraries for this day and our CC friends are bound to enjoy some wonderful sights with Iceland & Norway on the schedule and, for those staying on longer, the Baltics await. Whichever itinerary our CC friends have chosen, we hope they have a memorable time and, of course, we wish them safe travels, fair winds and smooth seas. Bon Voyage to Zuiderdam - 14 day Northern Isle Cruise: mjcruise101 AnnieBelle Bon Voyage to Zuiderdam - 26 day Northern Isles & Jewels of the Baltics: Stratheden Bon Voyage everyone!!!!!! Have a great cruise and a WONDERFUL time!!!!!
  11. It has been a few years since we have sailed on HAL. We love the smaller ships, however for the Mediterranean there appears to be two options that I am seeing for spring 2020 - Niew Amsterdam and Zuiderdam. I am looking at three different 24 day itineraries. Each double up their visit to ports we have been to previously with the B2B co-mingled. I think that our preferred itinerary may be sailed by Zuiderdam. I realize NA is the newest ship and that is attractive. That said, all three itineraries have bonus ports for us. Several we have visited and several we have not. We most likely will book a Verandah and all three are super limited on availability, therefore we need to decide quickly. Particularly with the latest promotion. Suites are just as limited in availability on all three. I would really appreciate some some input on these two ships - we don’t care about casinos, art auctions, photos, shopping, and honestly the entertainment is not huge although we typically enjoy a few shows. Food & restaurants, wine selections, our stateroom, our deck, outside promenade for walking are more important to us. Any insights or feedback would sure be appreciated. Thank you so much for assistance
  12. Warning: Public transport strike Netherlands May 28th effecting Zuiderdam visit to Amsterdam! A Public transport strike is planned for May 28th in the Netherlands. There will be 24 hours strike effecting all trains and also all city public transport in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Strike could be spreading to other sectors, they are related to the pension age, so affecting all working sectors in the Netherlands. If you do a ships tour, these most probably won’t be effected, but if you plan to go on your own, do not expect any public transport within the mentioned city’s, nor trains in the whole country. Also expect an increase in road traffic, due to the absence of public transport, more people will have to use cars, that normally would travel by public transport. News media in Dutch, but you can use google translate; https://www.nu.nl/economie/5881119/grote-staking-ns-en-stadsvervoer-in-drie-grootste-steden-op-28-mei.html https://www.ad.nl/binnenland/treinverkeer-en-ov-grote-steden-plat-op-28-mei~a8530fd4/
  13. Yes it was an interesting cruise, but not at the same "interesting" level as our Zuiderdam cruise last fall.🙂 Hopefully, I can start a post-cruise photo review of the cruise on this site fairly soon.
  14. Does anyone know if there are Mah Jongg game on board the Zuiderdam? Thanks.
  15. We will be on the Zuiderdam October 20 for a 10-day Panama Canal Sunfarer Cruise. Looking forward to it!
  16. I do not agree with everyting the Green party want´s - say´s or is doing- but calling them ill- or whatever is a bit to much! I am glad they are around since more than 30 years- they acted as eye opener for many people- and not just Germans. Our current goverment is on it´s last legs- with the election not too far away. I would really like to see the Green party with a bit influence- even in colation to built a new goverment! A litte bit of a " Green" influcene would be beneficial for many a state I could name..! That flag with the scull to eliminate cruising alltogether they used in sundays protests is nonsense- they should have done their homework a bit better- there are options for cruise lines to minimize the dirt they blow out into the sky´s ! They should just use them. If those activists will help to push the cruise lines out of their confort zone and force them to act - all the better! For those who mentioned they should have stopped a German ship- well for that matter- i guess the Zuiderdam was just in the wrong place at the wrong time! Either ship would have served their purpose!

  18. On our cruise fromMontreal to NY several years ago, I had lobster in every port. No lobster rolls, just large fresh lobster. I'm planning to do the same on my upcoming Zuiderdam cruise.
  19. Is waiting until people get hurt or killed really the criteria for action ? An ounce of prevention is better . Why aren't these protesters protesting at an AIDA or Mein Schiff ship or at the Naval shipyard across from Zuiderdam building ships in Kiel ?
  20. Zuiderdam in March '19 this year, Neptune Suite, we got the flimsy dark blue nonwoven poly bags.
  21. We are on HAL Zuiderdam with an overnight stop in Reykjavik in July. It is my understanding that we will be docked someplace about 2 miles from the downtown area. Do any of you know if either HAL or the city will provide a shuttle to the downtown area? If so, will it be free? If not a shuttle, which other transportation may be available? Any information is welcome. Thank you.
  22. Will be taking my C-PAP machine on a 17 night Zuiderdam cruise. Are there electric outlets close to the bed? Do I need to bring an extension chord? It is a verandah cabin.
  23. Why ? It to restrict peoples freedom to travel or own a car ? That is the stated goal of the cruise protesters - to eliminate cruise ships and cruising . No more cruising no more cruise critic and the workers that they claim to be helping have no more jobs . https://tkkg.noblogs.org/post/2019/06/09/kreuzfahrtschiff-zuiderdam-in-kiel-blockiert-fuer-urlaub-ohne-ausbeutung-und-umweltzerstoerung
  24. 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). Please NOTE - the listing will not be updated every week for part of April & May so please give plenty of notice for your cruises to receive a Bon Voyage.

  25. The last time we decided to visit Canaletto was when we were on the Zuiderdam for a few weeks. We had no problem getting a reservation and when we arrived at the dedicated part of the Lido we were surprised to find that there were only about 3 tables of diners. We sat down and the waiter immediately came over to explain the menu. We asked for the wine steward and said we did not want any food until we had our wine (we do this from experience). At that point we waited over 20 minutes until the wine steward finally arrived (he was working in the nearby Lido). We ordered one of the medium priced Italian wines and were quickly told there was none aboard. We then ordered a 2nd Italian wine and the wine steward said they had none of that aboard. We tired a third wine which also was not aboard. At that point we asked the steward what he did have and he mentioned a couple of typical low priced wines (think Robert Mondavi)! This was early in a long cruise and we were not happy that HAL gave us a faux wine list (most of the wines on the list were not on the ship). So we politely thanked the wine steward and got up from our table. At that point the Maitre'd approached us and asked if we had a problem and we explained that we were in an "Italian venue" that had no Italian wines on the menu. We asked him to cancel our reservation and took the elevator down to the MDR where we went for the normal Anytime dinner. We cruise many different lines and HAL has the saddest alternative restaurants in the industry (Princess is close). Lines like Celebrity now charge over $50 for some of their alternative restaurants and get plenty of customers. HAL has relatively low priced alternative restaurants (we get a 50% discount) and they are not even worth the low price! That being said, we still like our lunches in the Pinnacle...although dinner is not impressive. Hank
