  1. The British have a wonderful system. It is called a queue. You may know it as a 'line'. Please feel free to join all the others already in the queue/line and wait. There is a global pandemic at the moment, and all cruise lines and travel companies are up to their necks in unexpected work. There are more important things than me. me. me.
  2. No chocolates with 'Halve Maen' but I use this laundry bag as a memory!
  3. Thanks for the Daily Report. I will pass on the meal suggestion. Today is Striploin steak, grilled tomatoes, sweet corn, pepper sauce, garlic butter, french fries, followed by 10mg Lipitor! ☺️
  4. All prices are quoted in USD and charged in USD to your onboard account. When doing your online check in you need to give a credit card number to cover the charges. If you wish you can deposit cash (USD) with the front desk, once onboard.
  5. Our stock is getting low......😌
  6. Only 'essential services' are operating across Europe and Italy has been badly hit, specially the northern industrialist areas. Building will resume when the lockdown ends and Ryndam will continue to be built. I would guess that she will be 2/3 months late. Even if Fincantieri would work double shifts, the supply chain will need to get back up to speed. Also, I don't imagine that HAL would be pushing for completion too soon until bookings for all ships start to fill.

  8. I don't know if a FCD is refundable 'on request'. If it is not used within 4 years then it is refunded to the credit card used to purchase it. TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1. Future Cruise Deposits are non-transferable. 2. Future Cruise Deposits are for new bookings only. 3. Future Cruise Deposits are issued per person. 4. Future Cruise Deposits currency is non-changeable. The currency of the Future Cruise Deposit and the booking it is applied must match. 5. The Future Cruise Deposit should be applied to a booking that sails four (4) years from the date of purchase and will be automatically cancelled and refunded if not used within that time. 6. Additional guests in the stateroom who do not have a Future Cruise Deposit will be required to pay the normal deposit. 7. Future Cruise Deposits do not apply to cruises shorter than 3 days, waitlist bookings, World Cruises, Grand Voyages or segments thereof. 8. The shipboard credit offer or any unused portion is not redeemable for cash. 9. Our standard cancellation policy applies to Future Cruise Deposits if booking is cancelled within the Cancellation Fee period. 10. When you have decided on your next cruise, please contact your travel professional to arrange your bookings. You may also contact Holland America Line by visiting our website at www.hollandamerica.com.
  9. Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries. We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market. We continue to identify technical compliance solutions that will provide all readers with our award-winning journalism.
  10. I would think it unlikely to proceed, as all passengers would need to be disembarked quite soon to get to Bahamas. If they can transfer those quarantined onboard to another ship and sanitize the ship completely by 6th April, then it is possible. (I think the current plan is that those who are 'unwell' are being kept onboard, but that may have changed!). Zaandam was due to receive 'Billboard onBoard', 'Lincoln Center Stage' and 'Fuji Wonder Photo Shop' during this dry dock. Amsterdam is due to dry dock on 12th May but she is still at sea and only due into Durban, South Africa on 5th April, so she will not be able to take Zaandam's spot. Rotterdam is due to Dry Dock in December and possibly they will put Rotterdam into Dry Dock on April 7th (she was also due to receive 'Billboard on Board' in her December dry dock), and move Zaandam's dry dock out to December. Are the Dry Docks open and working? Would the Bahamanian authorities allow ships to dock? Just a few random thoughts this morning!
  11. use the 'drop down menu' named 'Watch another webcam' and select Fort Lauderdal Beach (Courtyard)
  12. Ooops! Sorry! I have only sailed Rotterdam once and in a Vista suite. It was fine. I would not book a Lanai as it does not have its own verandah but opens on to the promenade deck. You have reserved sun loungers.
  13. If it says 'suite' then it is double mariner points providing the suite is booked at a published price (not an upsell).
  14. They are great showers! Great pressure, constant temperature and no need to step over the bath tub side to get in. Also, a large cubicle, so no plastic shower curtain sticking to your back.
