  1. With the much maligned Cruise companies being hammered by the media I caught this on my news feed. Christine Streets Cruise and Travel Director on board the Koningsdam. Her story. Experience of life on board a repatriation ship.

  3. I have just booked a cruise for December 2021 and in looking at the HAL site, it seemed that a Vista Suite was larger than a Verandah. However, now I realize that is actually smaller even though it is more expensive. Can anyone give me a rough idea of the sizes (the ones HAL lists can be anywhere within the parameters they give) of the actual cabin and of the verandah and/or the Vista Suite? Any preferences if you have seen both cabins? Thanks. Just really planning ahead.
  4. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated May 29th, 2020 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  7. Thank you for the report. For those wondering about Pichilingue the Koningsdam (at Pichilingue) is probably actually closer to the town of LaPaz than the Oosterdam. The ship next to the Oosterdam is the Sebourn Sojourn. Roy
  8. Knowing what you know now in mid-May, would you book a 7 day Mex. Riv. on Koningsdam this December?
  9. Hi Kazu, We were just talking today about Prinsendam, last year's cruise, and hoping for good things in 2021! So, I'm engaging any kind of superstition, affirmation, or voodoo to make it so. We are on Koningsdam, Classic California Coast 4/17/2021 combining with Koningsdam, Wine Country and Pacific Northwest, 4/24/2021, to make a DIY collectors cruise. Our first time to stay on and laugh at others getting off.We are excited about San Francisco on both departures, as we have never been there. On September 25, 2021, 15-day Atlantic Coast on Rotterdam. We tried to book a similar cruise twice this year, only to see them canceled. Hoping 3rd time's the charm. Thanks, Jacqui. Maybe see you again in the Crow's Nest one of these days!
  10. HAL has refunded all monies for our Koningsdam SA March 2020. Now we are waiting for FCC. I am posting details here to provide information not to make anyone more annoyed at any delays.

  13. I’m wondering if the VB staterooms aft on deck 4 are desirable. I like the idea of the larger balcony but am worried about increased movement at the aft and possible noise from the galley below. Anybody have any experience with these staterooms?
  14. DH and I had a Verandah on the Koningsdam in January for a 10-day cruise and were very happy with it. We were closer to mid-ship, but some other passengers with Verandah cabins on the same deck 4 towards the forward were very unhappy because of the loud music every night they could hear in their cabin. We didn't experience it at all in our Verandah cabin, but I know we didn't enjoy the music venues themselves because they were way too loud and ear splitting.
  15. We have done both verandahs and vistas on Koningsdam and unless there is very little price difference or you are desperate for a pair of mediocre binoculars to use, then stick with the verandah.
  16. I just put down a deposit on the Nov 3-21 Hawaii Cruise sailing from San Diego on the Koningsdam I live in San Diego and won't have to worry about air. This cruise will only sail inside the USA between 2 states with relatively low COVID breakouts. There will probably be a midnight touch and go to Ensenada unless they waive the PSA (unlikely I surmise) I am going to start planning my next cruises and quit worrying about refunds! Who is has something planned?
  17. Last year I had my eye on a Koningsdam cruise and talked to my PCC about the Vista versus the Verandah category. She told me that the Vista Suite is technically larger but that there is wasted space you can’t use so it ends up being pretty much the same. She and my friend who had been on also told me about the different layout for the Vista Suite which didn’t appeal so we booked a Verandah. We normally book mid ship too but if you go just a smidge aft on deck 4 (I believe it’s called Beethoven) there are some huge balconies for some of the Verandah cabins. if you check out halfacts dot com, you can get an idea, too. Hope this helps.
  18. It’s hard to get an exact idea as the size includes the balcony. We were on the Koningsdam this past fall and had a verandah. It was very comfortable. Our friends had a vista and it was definitely a bit bigger and the bed was placed closer to the window. IMO unless it is a great deal I don’t think it is worth the difference in cost unless you really need the double mariner days.
  19. I wasn’t originally planning on doing a review for our cruise, but with all that is happening in the world, I thought it might come as a welcome distraction. I have certainly enjoyed the reviews I have read recently. I don’t have any notes from our trip, so it will all be from memory and the daily planners which I kept. Do feel free to ask any questions and I’ll do my best to answer. First, I’ll introduce us. I’m Alice and my husband is Pierre. I’m British/ Belgian and Pierre is French. We live in Belgium and have been married for two years. Before I knew Pierre, I had cruised 11 times with various friends, mainly in the Caribbean. Last year, I took Pierre on his first cruise - a 7-day cruise on Rotterdam from Rotterdam to the Fjords. Like many people, he had been sceptical about cruising, but he had a great time, which is how we ended up booking this cruise. Little did we imagine everything that would happen afterwards. Pre-cruise: We flew Brussels-Dublin-Miami, taking advantage of US pre-clearance in Dublin. We arrived in Miami on the Sunday evening and stayed in Miami Beach. On the Monday morning, we had booked a tour in French of the Everglades. It was a small group and we greatly enjoyed the tour. We were back in time for lunch, which we had at Alma Mexicana, after which we enjoyed Miami Beach until around 4pm. We then relocated to Fort Lauderdale. We spent the Tuesday walking around Fort Lauderdale, taking a trip on the Carrie B and having lunch at Boathouse at the Riverside, followed by the beach and a visit to Total Wine. On the Wednesday morning, before heading to the ship, we stocked up on a few things at Walgreens.
  20. The Westerdam is already in Manila Bay. Some of the crew from the Amsterdam have already departed for home, all males. Female Filipinos still onboard. But it looks like the end is close as Theresa, DRM Wine Steward just got notified that she is now on the list of those who have tested negative. But her friends haven’t. Josephine DRM receptionist is still waiting. A friend on the Koningsdam has posted that the Koningsdam has been gathering crew from a variety of ships of the same nationality so that they can fly home to their countries. They tried to repatriate the Peruvians, but their country won’t let them in. The ship is anchored in Puerto Vallarta Bay. Docks when they repatriate crew.
  21. today is Shavuot and Learn About Composting Day When in panic, fear and doubt, Drink in barrels, eat, and shout.

  22. I have done both ... very much prefer westbound -- a week-ish pre-cruise in Europe somewhere, then a week of ports, then a week of sea days (blissful relaxation and seemingly gaining an extra hour per night). The timing works out well too usually late October to mid-November -- that fall lull before (US) Thanksgiving and the holidays. Most memorable? Inaugural TA on Koningsdam -- arrived back to FLL Wednesday 09th November 2016 -- the morning after the night before. Lido for early breakfast, was, umm, interesting. Scott.
  23. Thanks Roy for helping out!! Funny about Koningsdam! Pichilingue Mexico I never heard of!! Traveled with HAL for ever to Mexico and I guess either by passed this area or it was a blink with the eye. I so want our ships back in port and all of this behind us. Time will only tell! I miss your blogs Roy to read daily on your adventures! Denise😊
  24. Good Morning To Rich,to my 2 sisters Cat and Joy and to everyone on THE DAILY!!! Rich your WOW quote is great!! Where do you find the quotes? I also like your maps that you do. Isn’t it great how everyone like Roy and John help out with our HAL beauties at times too for you? We have a great family here! I also was able to get my cruise on Koningsdam rebooked and saved $1,500.00 ! Now just hope we sail in 1/21. Happy Shavuot to those celebrating! 🌺 Cat tonight will do a lemon drop martini👍 Want you to know we had the Moroccan Salmon last night. It was very good. Thanks. May you have a great day too! Hug Bindi for me😊 Hope our sis is doing well on her home shopping in Galveston/Austin! Denise😊
