We got off the Noordam yesterday and the Piano Bar entertainer is, indeed, Jeremy Oren.

You are in for some great evenings with Jeremy. I would say that he's the best piano bar entertainer I have ever seen on a cruise ship, if not the best entertainer PERIOD that I have seen on a cruise ship. Be prepared to get to the Piano Bar early if you want to sit down as his shows are quite popular. (Only his show on the first night was lightly attended--then the word got out!)

My favorite shows were "Beatles and Brits" and "Elton John and Billy Joel". But be sure to see his explanation of "American Pie" on the "Songwriters" night!

Zaandam never had a Piano Bar. It came from the shipyard with a Piano Lounge, which was changed to The Mix a while back. That is what still remains, on Upper Promenade, at mid-ship.

Per Sir Stryker's FB page cruise schedule he is on the Veendam from July 8- Aug 19 and Noordam Oct. 20- Jan 20, 2017.

Great performer and it appears he's currently ashore and not on contract.

Always subject to change.

So no piano at all? Even in the Crows Nest?

Yes their is a Piano entertainment area. It's no longer a venue upon itself but in an open area referred to as the Mix which includes champagne and beer on tap bars. Also the shops are in background.

Not the best venue but it works.

The pianoman on the NA recently was Mike (don't know his last name), and he was GREAT. He's an accomplished pianist with an amazing voice, and he really interacted with his fans. I was fascinated just watching his fingers flying across the keyboard. This was the first time we've been in a piano bar on a HAL ship, and we went every night. I can hardly wait for my next HAL cruise.
The piano man was Mike McCabe, and he does have an AMAZING voice and performing talent! We came early to the piano bar every night just to get a seat. I was very impressed that Mike plays his music mostly from memory and very rarely looked up a unique song a guest requested. I think his piano bar show was by far the most popular evening event. Every night the piano bar was packed with standing room only, so they actually moved him to the Crow's Nest to accommodate all of his fans.

On a side note - We sailed on the Koningsdam this summer, where they have the new Billboard. The ship is beautiful. For the true piano music lovers though, – it sadly just does not measure up. We miss the piano bar experience where you could just request Mike to play a song and there it is for instant enjoyment, even to sing along. Pianoman Mike McCabe you are the BEST!!

We enjoyed Mike on the piano from La to NZ last Oct.

All 4 cruises on the koningsdam had all request sets and sometimes a couple per night. That was mixed in with their themed sets

Is this true? We sail on the Westerdam next week. Piano bars are my favorite.
