    Nieuw Statendam

    I just boarded the Nieuw Statendam today. Observations are based on cabin 1012, a single oceanview cabin. I will start by answering some common questions about the "in cabin" experience. The TV is large, wall mounted at the foot of the bed. It is mounted such that any access to any ports is difficult. It has been suggested that cabin stewards may be able to help you if you want/need to access these ports. I have attached an image showing the 9 "live" tv channels available. There are approximately 144 movies available for viewing. You may select them by seeing categories, or one listing of all movies. The navigation around the TV menu is different than Koningsdam as of last November. Other observations. I have been on Koningsdam twice, leaving last on November 11th last year. So far the Nieuw Statendam seems very familiar. It helps that I have the same cabin I have had on Koningsdam. Muster drill will be happening shortly, and then we will see how similar they are.
  2. The two newest ships for Holland America are traveling together from St. Thomas to Half Moon Cay. This is Koningsdam as seen off the port side of Nieuw Statendam
  3. Does anyone know if the balconies between staterooms can be opened on the Nieuw Statendam? Thank you.
  4. We will be traveling on the NS in April. Our itinerary states disembarkation starts at 7am on a Sunday at Port Everglades. How long does the process take? Booking return airfare and wondering what would be the earliest time of day for a return flight home. I know there can be problems which may arise, which would inevitably mean a flight change, but what is the norm for getting off this ship? Not interested in staying overnight as we all need to return to work and school on Monday barring any catastrophes. Thanks!
  5. For those of you recently on the Nieuw Statendam do you know which days they offered High Tea service? Do they still offer a daily tea as well? That is one of my favorite parts of cruising so I want to plan my itinerary around it! Thanks in advance!
  6. Doing an inside cabin for the first time on the Nieuw Statendam (cabin I-6112). Does anyone know if they have a fridge in these cabins? Thanks! Helen

    oulets on Nieuw Statendam

    I have heard that there are USB ports by the beds but I was wondering if there were electrical outlets by the beds (so I wouldn't need an extension cord for my CPAP). I am in a bacony cabin.
  8. What is the process for the NS muster drill? We will on in November. Thanks

    Fountain drinks - Nieuw Statendam

    Hi everyone, I apologise as this has doubtless been answered before - however I’ve trawled the various beverage threads to no avail! Sailing onboard Nieuw Statendam next month - I’m looking into purchasing the $25 for $50 soda card. I’m just a little unsure as to exactly which beverages are available via this - is it literally only fizzy soft drinks such as coke or sprite which would be included with this, or are there other soft drinks such as juices or ice tea? Thank you for your help!
  10. review on state room V5053 (1 star) Would appreciate additional information booked it for 20 days - should we relocate ?
  11. Hi Everyone, This will be my first cruise with HAL in June on NS. I know that on embarkation that the MDR and Lido are open for lunch. I am wondering what will be my lunch options for the other days on the cruise. Will the MDR be open for lunch every day or just on sea days? Are there any speciality restaurants that will be open for lunch and if so, do you know how much they will cost? Thank you.
  12. Does anyone know if the balconies between staterooms can be opened on the Nieuw Statendam? Thank you.
  13. Do the standard Veranda cabins have a shower/bathtub or just a shower? Thanks
  14. I am considering a solo cruise on Nieuw Statendam. It will have to be an inside cabin due to budget constraints. Any suggestions as to more spacious inside cabins or cabins to avoid?
  15. Thinking of trying an inside cabin for a 1 week cruise. I keep reading mixed information regarding a love seat in these cabins. Does anyone know for sure if any of the inside cabins have a love seat? Thanks so much. Helen

    Club Orange on Nieuw Statendam

    Can anyone tell me how late they serve breakfast in Club Orange. One of our party is a late riser. Thanks.
  17. We are considering bringing a larger suitcase to share rather than two smaller ones. Wondering if there will be room to slide it under the bed. It is 13.5 inches deep.

    Cabin location - Nieuw Statendam

    I hope the experts can help with this... I am rethinking the cabin we have booked. (after just having a forward higher deck on our recent cruise - whoa!!!) And am seeing a low deck, mid-ship, cabin available. It is on the Main Deck, close to the bottom level of the Atrium. Can anyone give me any insight on what kind of noise/traffic there might be. Music Walk is forward of the Atrium, on Deck 2. Could this be an issue? I am wondering if I should consider one of the new Ocean View cabins that were added to the Nieuw Statendam on the Main Deck. Any thoughts?
  19. Background: Nearly 30 years cruising. Diamond on Royal Caribbean, variety of other colors and jewelry across NCL, Carnival, MSC. Couple near 40, son will be a bit under age 5 at proposed time of sailing. Feel service is declining on Royal Caribbean. Don't care for some of the rowdiness have found lately on NCL and Carnival. Looking for decent kids club and activities; nightly entertainment until 10-11pm is plenty for us really. Good included in fare food; whether this be lido, pool deck, or MDR we expect good quality. Want to try a somewhat quieter and less crowded ship than the mega ships we have been going on. Like the Key West/San Juan/Grand Turk itinerary which can do on either ship it looks like. Which ship would you recommend, and why, for a young active family but not looking for a sports bar party like Carnival or NCL. Expecting something distinctly cut above Royal Caribbean, not necessarily fancy. Does NA have a full walking track around ship? That is something to consider for us also.
  20. Hi Team, Quick question. Does anyone know what draft beers are served on the Nieuw Statendam? Thanks Dan
  21. Would like to know the different wi-fi packages on board the NS. Only interested in checking emails & don’t need for entire cruise. Thank you!
  22. Need help with booking a private excursion in Stavanger. Came across 2 . Rodne Fjord Cruise which specializes in sightseeing tours in the Lysefjord or Classic Lysefjord Safari aboard a high speed RIB boat
  23. Here is a link to an interesting article about this wonderful new ship that appeared in the LA Times We were on Nieuw Statendam's maiden voyage. Here's what we discovered By KARL ZIMMERMANN JAN 27, 2019 | 3:00 AM | ABOARD THE NIEUW STATENDAM https://www.latimes.com/travel/cruises/la-tr-cruise-nieuw-statendam-holland-america-20190127-story.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+latimes%2Fsports%2Ffootball%2Fnfl+(L.A.+Times+-+Pro+Football)
  24. We sailed enjoyed the production shows on the Amsterdam in December. Now we are considering the Statendam in Febuary. Would the production shows be the same as the shows we saw on the Amsrerdam?
  25. Going on the Nieuw Statendam Feb 10 for the 14 day trip. The ship returns to Lauderdale after 7 days .What happens to the passengers that are continuing for the rest of the cruise? Do you have to leave the ship ? What is the procedure and time frame ? Would it be better to book an excursion while this takes place? This is the first cruise on HAL and we did get the drink package.
