  1. Since Holland America charges earn double points (I assume that is still correct information), I book my shore excursions and indulgences prior to redeeming my points. I called to redeem my points as soon as the final cruise payment appeared on my credit card statement. It did not completely pay for the cruise but it sure helped. Marcia
  2. Have you seen the Retreat? There were reports that the Koningsdam retreat was cramped and generally less desirable than the retreat on the other HAL ships. I wondered if the Nieuw Stantendam had improved that situation. Thanks
  3. I have stayed in cabins on the 8th deck. In fact this is our desired location....no problems with motion. This may be different on a transatlantic cruise. Cabins directly under the pools may have a bit noise. Under the spa or under the lido restaurant are usually quiet.
  4. Does the explorations café still serve pastries and snacks?
  5. If it makes a difference, I was thinking of Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam.
  6. Just wondering...how late does the ocean bar usually have music? and what type of music?
  7. Good point . In my world 60s-70s are cold. I will watch for a ship with lido cabanas to do a Hawaiian cruise.
  8. Thanks for the great review. I really like your positive attitude.
  9. I am looking at cruises to Hawaii however DH is very emphatic that he won't go without a cabana. When crossing the Pacific does the retreat get a lot of wind? Is it still a good experience? Thanks Marcia

    I am happy to read so many positive comments about New York pizza. My only regret is that we won't be on a ship which also serves New York deli sandwiches. They sounded so good.

    Several years ago I had pizza in the Lido restaurant and it was so bad I have never eaten pizza on a cruise again. Since there is now the New York pizza space by the sea view pool, I wondered what is the general feeling regarding the quality of pizza served there? Marcia
  12. Has anyone ever disembarked from one Holland America ship and boarded another Holland ship departing the same day? I am especially interested in Fort Lauderdale. If there was an opportunity to combine two itineraries in this way, what would be the logistics? Thanks
  13. We are looking at the aft facing cabins on the Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam. This will be a change for us since we usually stay close to elevators. For those who have stayed in this area, did you find the distance to the elevators to be a significant inconvience?
  14. We are looking at the partially obstructed cabins on deck 4 near the midship elevators. We have never considered this location before so any help will be appreciated. What is the noise level like in these cabins? We were thinking of a large inside but I recently learned that I really don't like not being able to see outside. Thanks Marcia
  15. Has the price of the Pinnacle lunch changed?
