Correct, the Veendam was in town during the voyage of the vikings..

 YAY 🙂. As was the Prinsendam. 

 

What a beautiful town and with the White Star terminal still there.  A worthy visit for sure.

There is a local animation team who dress up in Victorian wear whenever a cruise ship hits town.

 

That stop was not on our itinerary.  We diverted from another port.  

 

I was disappointed until we arrived in Cobh.  Beautiful. Wonderful people.  Wonderful history and so well preserved.  Loved it.

Here's one for some fans of an older ship.............hubby and I met in those very seats some soon 15 years ago! 

Where we met........ special place for us!.jpg


Prinsendam - I think the space may have been labeled the Oak Room, but I could be wrong. I know it connected the casino, the library and the Explorers lounge

That nearly looks like the Java Bar to me?

I believe at this time it was referred to as the Java Cafe and specialty coffees and pastries were be enjoyed by one and all! 

 

kazu, we hope you and Jose are doing well and "enjoying" the time out which we are enjoying in one way or another!

Game: sjoelbakken..

 

 

Got that right but then again, I would not expect anything else from you due to your upbringing 😉 Now, the ship; you already know it's the site of the semi-new Gallery Bar. When she was new after being christened by the Queen in our favorite city (the one that neither you, nor I, was born in) she did not come out with a Gallery Bar. That's a lot of hints..........

At this point in time, early in it's HAL career, it was the Java Cafe with specialty coffees included!!!! Hey, I must be getting OLD!!


That indeed was the name - and it was adjacent to the Oak room. I found an old deck plan and the Java Cafe indeed connected the Casino, Oak Room (originally a smoking room later sort of an ante room to the library/Explorations cafe) and Explorers lounge.

Ok here’s my entry - bonus points if you know the name of the sculpture as well as the ship

5 points for the ship name - 5 points extra if you can give me the name of the sculpture!
 

I personally feel this was the most successful and elegant of the atrium sculptures of all the S&R class vessels.

Thanks - it was still called the Java Bar when we were on in 2019 I believe.

Those chairs were always full too 😉 

thanks for the good wishes.  Summer is easy as I am busy with my gardens.  I dread the winter with no cruise to look back on but we have one to look forward to and I’m hopeful by then it will be relatively safe 😉

Fountain of the Sirens

 

Agreed, Statendam's atrium was nice, but I always liked Rotterdam's "Times Square" topped by Hercules holding the world on his back

 

The largest art object on Holland America Line's ms Rotterdam, the Atrium Clock, made by Gilbert Lebigre and Corrine Roger in Italy in 1986, has 14 clock faces that show the time in different locations around the world, along with astonomical instruments and sculptures.

let’s call it a tie! 👍
 

EDIT - For some reason I thought it was Atlas who carried the world on his back, but it’s been a long time since I took Greek mythology.

I believe early on it was thought of more as the coffee bar (certainly with less options than are now available in Exploration Cafe)  but drinks were available from there also. I have fond remembrances of after dinner espresso martinis while listening to the Adagio Strings. Aaaah, the good old days are gone.....but we will survive and enjoy the cruising life whenever it restarts. Ur last  experience last Dec/Jan (24 day Seabourn Quest Antarctica and South Georgia) was at least a good way to finish up our cruising "career" if we are unable to do anything in the future.
