    Half Moon Cay with Two Ships

    Definitely go to see it at least once. We like to get one of the earliest tenders possible, spend 2 or 3 hours, and go back to the ship for a late lunch just as the incoming crowds are starting to get heavy. We've been there 6 or 7 times (a couple of times with 2 ships) and it never gets old for us.
  2. You should start your roll call in the N.A. roll call forum here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/461-nieuw-amsterdam/

    SiIde by Side

    One of the HAL ships could be at 19. Still walkable if you don't have tooooo much luggage. Or, one HAL ships could get 29. If that happens there should be a free shuttle running from the mid-port garage.
  4. I know they have them in the Lido. Maybe they would get them for you in the MDR.

    Guarantee room assignment

    We've done 9 guarantees and several of them appeared between 19:00 and 20:00 FL time, or just before close-of-business in Seattle. Maybe a coincidence, maybe not.

    Oosterdam to Alaska newbie

    Even on Gala nights you will find many men in just a collared shirt and slacks at the Early/Open dining, and even some at the Late/Fixed sittings.
  8. We get lots of sunrises like that in FL, and most turn out to be beautiful days. 🙂

    “Returning” a gift given to us

    And remember you'll probably be asked later how you enjoyed the specialty restaurants. I say let them eat in the Lido, MDR, or room service on their own.

    Koningsdam single cabins

    In case you haven't noticed, they've been letting mention and link to halfacts for cabin pictures for quite a while now. This page http://halfacts.com/pinnacle-class/1014-koningsdam/ has the most photos and comments (from rafinmd), and there are lots for http://halfacts.com/pinnacle-class/1012-koningsdam/

    Nieuw Amsterdam balcony size on deck 7

    ... but 7138 is a VB, not VD. By 'aft' do mean 'stern' like a lot of people here, or do you mean a side VD in the back half of the ship? If you mean a side VD, 7081 to 7099, those are 6' deep.

    Nieuw Amsterdam balcony size on deck 7

    In a picture at halfacts.com/7138-nieuw-amsterdam/ it looks to me to be a bit deeper than 6 feet. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge.
