Btimmer's Blog of the Nieuw Statendam Inaugural Voyage

Recommended Posts

Today we had the Mariners reception and luncheon and there were at least 500 in attendance.  Be sure to read tonight's blog for what might be the most embarrassing moment in a Cruise Director's life.

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this blog.  I am getting conflicting info about smoking in the casino.  Hopefully it is not allowed,  can you help with this information?  Thanks😎

Unfortunately, it's definitely allowed.  If one leaves the World Stage towards the aft on Deck 3, you must run the gauntlet through the smoke of the casino.

Many thanks, particularly for the video of 5124. We will have one of these large balconies in June and this gave us a great sense of what it will be like.

Beautiful.

 

Unique that HAL has the European spelling of "premere" on it.

More interesting to me is the lower wording is out of alignment with Holland America at the top.

Maybe due to the way the picture was taken?  I can't tell for certain.

It's not the way the picture was taken.  It is crooked.

Thanks You for responding so quickly.  I have been enjoying your blogging of your journey.  I have also been sharing the blog with our daughter and her husband, they will be in 10012.  The excitement and anticipation is building, I am starting to get the suit case packed and getting ready for our drive to Port Everglades (should be about two and a half hours) on Wednesday morning, December 19.  You Photos are so good, Thanks.  Yes, Deck 10 Forward gives easy access to the N Y Deli for Breakfast or Lunch and to the DiveIn, with an occasional visit to the MDR for Breakfast.  BTW, the stateroom videos were execllent.  Thanks again.
