  1. Yes, it sounded like she was running out of steam for the last one. LOL. Maybe just my sound.
  2. We were on the Koningsdam last year and the Captain announced similar . We left late after "whatever" was taken care of and all was fine. better to have it corrected dockside in Ft Lauderdale than troubles at sea.
  3. Just read the updates, so NA is delayed. Here comes the new Princess. Will she love boat toot?
  4. We spent 24 days on the NS returning from Europe and your pictures showed us places we never saw! Great photos!
  5. Westeradam leaves Oct 30th from Barcelona and Zuiderdam leaves Nov 10th also from Barcelona both to Ft Lauderdale.
  6. Rotterdam is doing a "Viking Passage" cruise back to Boston in July. Then it does some interesting Canada-New England cruises some of which include Greenland. That still leaves NS and Veendam in Europe so far.
  7. Europe 2021 is showing, for the most part on HAL's website. Some exceptions: N Statendam, Rotterdam, an Veendam fall transatlantics are not posted. Will they be sent somewhere other than Florida? Will Veendam be leaving the fleet? Ryndam not showing yet.
  8. Yes! There is confusion with two ships being Nieuw not to mention the tradition of the Statendam name.
  9. Thanks for sharing Redneck Bob. Pre Carnival Holland America was pricey by todays standards. I booked the old Noordam in 2003, an inside room, for $1395 for 14 days and thought I had a real bargain! The travel agent told me, whenever you can get on HAL for $100 a day pp, grab it. That N class Noordam's rear end shook badly and was being replaces in the fleet with the new S class ships were a dream come true for Holland America. Carnival built those beautiful 55,000 ton ships with verandah rooms and deluxe verandah rooms, now Neptune Suites, and made them smaller than the Carnival ships so as not to compete with them. I would love for Holland America to build new replacement ships the S class size (which is about what Viking Ocean ships are), but I don't want to pay the Viking prices. So I'll enjoy the remaining S and R class for now and go with the bigger ships when the itinerary and prices are right.
  10. I'm afraid the east coast, and that includes Florida, have been behind the west coast in providing shoreside power to the cruise ships. With being the cruise ship capital of the world, Florida needs to catch up! Maybe those in charge (no pun intended) are waiting for the ships new convert to LNG.
