  1. I asked this last week, but it was on the Floataway Lounge, so I'm not sure who saw it. I could use some help. We are booked on a 14-day cruise in cabin 4129. I understand that this cabin has a huge balcony. I have seen You Tube videos of a similar cabin on the Eurodam, but was wondering if anyone had pictures of this cabin. I saw some pictures posted on old threads, but because of read-only, it wouldn't let me open them. I'm worried about privacy... and the view? We were upgraded to this cabin, and I'm wondering if it is truly an upgrade. There is nothing I can do about it, but was just wondering.
  2. Does Nieuw Amsterdam have an outdoor jogging track? Hoping someone who has been in Nieuw Amsterdam recently can give a definitive answer, as I am seeing conflicting info. Old (5 years+) threads say no, but cruisecritic's ship review says there is a "small" one (1/4 mile laps) on Deck 10. I'm hoping this was an addition with last year's dry dock. Spouse is a big runner and hates treadmills so this would be huge for him!
  3. My husband and I plan on taking our daughter 17 and her friend, 19 on the Amsterdam on an Alaskan Inside. The Neptune Suite for 4 people is nominally cheaper than 2 standard verandah rooms. Not enough $ to make a difference in planning. Which would you select for practicality, benefits, and comfort for all.
  4. It's September already and the Alaska season in winding down. We have a total of only 17 more days with HAL ships in Juneau. The Signature Sisters will be doing their normal Monday visit with Eurodam at the AS dock and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock. Both will be in port from 1300-2200. Monday visitors are going to have an extremely nice day in Juneau. The forecast if for a sunny (!) day with only a 10% chance of rain. The high will be 66F/19C and a low of 45F/7C. Sunrise is at 6:02 am and sunset at 7:51 pm. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2200 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Amsterdam on Tuesday.
  5. Our preferred breakfast is a cup of good espresso based coffee ( which I don’t mind paying extra for ) accompanied by a few pastries! Do Hal ships have a dedicated coffee shop / lounge which opens in the mornings? In the past, we have enjoyed breakfast in Cafe Bacio on Celebrity, Princess’s international cafe and Cafe Promenade on RCCL. NCL had the worst offering, poor coffee and no food offerings, and P and O had reasonable coffee, but restricted to one pastry per customer!! Have not cruised with Hal, what will we find on board? Many thanks.
  6. We are booked on a B2B Caribbean on the NA over Halloween. I recenlty found a link to a CC posters personal site that had wonderful pictures from the 2017 Halloween cruise. Unfortunately I lost the link and can not locate it. If anyone knows where I can find this link or site please let me know.:D
  7. Does anyone know if all the deck 6 forward Vista cabins ( the 18 that have showers rather than bathtubs) had the shower curtains swapped out for glass enclosures? Would hate to make a random selection and get one that still has that sticky curtain!
  8. While the Amsterdam is is drydock (currently) - I know that the rooms being converted to Lanais on Lower Promenade will get all new bathrooms with walk-in showers and glass doors like other ships in the fleet have received. Does anyone know if ALL bathrooms will get new wall panels, floors and counters (like those on the Rotterdam, etc have gotten), even if they retain their original tubs/showers, or will it only be a select few? If for example I knew that my current category "E" room on Dolphin Deck would retain it's original bath decor, but a Category D or C on another deck would get a bath refresh, even if keeping the tub, I'd pay more to move up. However if ALL rooms get the new bath decor I'll stay where I am and save a few $$$
  9. I have searched all over and can't find the answer that I am looking for. I am aware that Amsterdam had a recent dry dock and read somewhere that Vista Suites now have the new TV system but NOT the Neptune suites (?), they still have DVD players. Sounds odd. Can anyone give me accurate info on this?
  10. Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100 and Westerdam at the AS dock from 1300-2200. Another nice day for Juneau, again with a 0% chance of rain. The high will be 63F/17C and the low 35F/2C. Sunrise is at 6:34 am and sunset at 7:08 pm. Also in port are Golden Princess (0700-1600) at the FKL dock and Norwegian Bliss (1400-2200) at the AJ dock. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Noordam on Thursday.
  11. Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam will be back in Juneau on Monday from 1300-2200. Eurodam will be at the AS dock and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock. Another yucky week of weather in Juneau. Monday has a 100% chance of rain with possibly an inch+ falling. High will only be 59F/15C and the low 53F/12C. Sunrise is at 5:16 am and sunset at 8:48 pm. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2200 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Amsterdam on Tuesday.
  12. TWO days to go before we leave for our HAL Nieuw Amsterdam Alaska cruise - Inside passage September 1 - 8! My DH and I are traveling with a group of 6 fun friends with ages ranging from 50 - 70. Yes, they all like to party so this will be interesting. Of course, so do we! We all live in SoCal so our usual weather is, “sunny.” It can sometimes be, “sunny with some clouds.” I have been checking the Alaska weather DAILY, and it changes every day! Let’s just hope we have some sun and not all rain. We shall see. Four of us fly up to Vancouver on Friday, a day before we board. We are staying at the Marriott due to my DH having “status” there - he travels A LOT! Yes, we are still poor pions working every day for our vacations. Retirement is still just a dream! (Yes, pity us). I plan on doing a LIVE review (I usually do that - can’t help myself). I’ve not cruised with Holland in quite a while, so I’m not sure how the internet will be. Crossing fingers! Packing is now to commence! Trying to stay under the 50 lbs. luggage limit AA places upon us - THAT should be an interesting challenge!
  13. Does anyone know when they typically decorate for Christmas?
  14. Hi everyone, We have reserved this cabin for an Alaska cruise next June. If anyone has stayed in this cabin, any and all comments will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your responses.
  15. Hi - new to HAL and wondering what type of evening entertainment they have. I've looked through the various posts and could not find anything so sorry if I've missed it. We are used to Princess that has a couple of different music venues, fun games, trivia, movies outside (MUTS) and shows in the theater. What does the Amsterdam have? Thank you
  16. On her way from Quebec to Fort Lauderdale (and then drydock), Maasdam will be visiting New York City from 0700-1645 (EDST). Amsterdam will be making her weekly visit to Juneau from 1300-2100 (local time) at the CT dock. The Maasdam visitors will have a sweltering, sunny day in the Big Apple with a forecast of 96F/36C.:eek: On the other hand, the Juneau visitors will be met by (you guessed it) a 100% chance of rain. The high will be 60F/16C and a low of 49F/9C. Sunrise is at 5:49 am and sunset at 8:08 pm. Also in port in New York City is Carnival Horizon. In Juneau, Amsterdam will be joined by Radiance of the Seas at the AS dock from 0700-2130, Golden Princess at the FKL dock from 0800-2100, and, doing the Norwegian Shuffle, Bliss will be at the AJ dock from 0700-1330 and Pearl from 1400-2200. The webcam locations are: New York http://www.nyharborwebcam.com/ http://www.portnywebcam.com/ Juneau http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/ Next up: Noordam on Wednesday.
  17. Eurodam will be at the AS dock and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Another day with a 100% chance of rain and a half inch predicted. High will be 60F/16C and the low 54F/12C. Sunrise is at 5:47 am and sunset at 8:10 pm. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2200 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200.

  18. Have sailed a lot (this will be my 5th with Holland) and don't really choose a sailing because of the ship...so I'm on Amsterdam to Alaska and realizing how small it is (which I think I'll like, especially since motion sickness is not a problem). There's only one current review, so if anyone has sailed Amsterdam to Alaska this season, I'd like to hear how your cruise was...if you felt, because of its size, you got closer to Hubbard Glacier; whether there was a place to listen to good music onboard (no BB King's is somewhat disappointing); and anything else you want to share. And, if you're cruising on this ship September 2-9, please join the roll call so we can talk more there :-}
  19. Hi, I'm thinking about renting a private cabana for the entire cruise in November. Anyone have thought on the location. The ones facing the lido pool have both side open, I understand you get a better breeze on hot days. What about the ones facing the side? Better sea view but do they get nice wind circulation also? Thank you,
  20. Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100. The beautiful weather continues with a mostly sunny day and a 0% chance of rain. The high will be 69F/21C and the low43F/6C. Sunrise is at 6:19 am and sunset at 7:28 pm. Not a busy day in Juneau so the Norwegians do not have to do the shuffle. Pearl will be at the AS dock and Bliss at the AJ dock both from 1400-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Noordam on Wednesday.
  21. Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam will be making their Monday visit to Juneau from 1300-2200. Eurodam will be at the AS dock and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock. If I had to summarize this week's weather forecast in one word it would be "yuck". Monday through Thursday have a 100% chance of rain with Friday having "only" a 50% chance. Monday is supposed to have showers in the morning with a more steady rain in the afternoon with a half an inch expected.:( High will be 63F/17C and low 55F/13C. Sunrise is at 5:00 am and sunset at 9:04 pm. Other ships in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2200 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Amsterdam on Tuesday.
  22. We are sailing for Alaska on Sunday on the Amsterdam, so excited. Hubby has never been on a cruise, are trying to pack. Wondering what the temp is like inside the ship?. Trying to figure out what is needed for at sea days etc. all help appreciated. Thanks
  23. All the usual suspects will be in Juneau on Monday. Both Eurodam (AS dock) and Nieuw Amsterdam (CT dock) will be in port from 1300-2200. Here is something I don't get to say very often in regards to Juneau - there is a 0% chance of rain on Monday! Also, the high will be 71F/22C and a low of 52F/11C. Sunrise is at 5:31 am and sunset at 8:29 pm. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2200 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The PTZtv webcam can be found at http://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Amsterdam on Tuesday.
  24. Think I saw someone asking recently about how Amsterdam looks these days. Here’s a few pictures. First, just check this out. Total night and day. Love the new look. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  25. Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100. Tuesday's forecast is for another beautiful day in Juneau - sunny skies, 0% chance of rain, and relatively warm weather.
