Hello and welcome aboard our cruise on the Nieuw Statendam starting tomorrow. Currently we are leaving cold Ohio and heading toward warm Ft Lauderdale. 

 

On on our trip, I’ll be providing information and photos of the ship, hotels and food. 

 

If if you have questions, please ask. 

 

Thank you you and welcome aboard!

Aloha 8373seth!

 

Could you take a look at the location of C1149 for me - wondered if it is a good fit for 3 people, two elderly?

 

Thanks - and safe trip!

Have a great time!  We just returned to Ohio from a wonderful 11 days on the Koningsdam!  I am looking forward to reading about your experiences on the Nieuw Statendam.

Enjoy your trip!  Can't wait to "go along" for the ride.  If it us not too much to ask, I would love to see the daily menus in the MDR.  Thank you!

You can go to halfacts.com and see the location of this cabin from the deck plans, which will also let you know if it's a double, triple or quad.

Awaiting your impressions.  We were on this ship during Christmas and enjoyed it so much we booked Christmas and New Year's this year.  Bon Voyage!

Good morning everyone. 

 

It's a nice warm sunny day here in Ft Lauderdale.  In a few hours we will be boarding the ship.  Embarkation is always an exciting time. 

 

Last night we stayed at the Ocean Drive Villas in Hollywood.   They are a few steps from the beach and the ocean walk in Hollywood.  

 

It's spring break time so the ocean walk was a bit crowded last night.  This gave us a great opportunity to people watch.  And, there were several interesting characters to keep our attention. 

 

We had supper at a place called the Taco Spot.  The food was excellent.  The tacos had this cilantro cream sauce which was amazing.  I would also recommend the mexican fries.

Thanks, but I was more interested in the locale, noise factors, convenience etc.

The TA at Holland America knows my requirements - 3 people, somewhat handicapped etc - and took care of us in previous cruises on HA.

What type of stateroom will you be in?  I am particularly interested in the Vista Suite.  Hope to see some photos of the ship.

 

Have a great cruise!

We are on board. We arrived at the port around 11:45 and we were on the ship by 12:30 or so. Our rooms were ready. We are on deck 8. Balcony BA. 

 

The ship is beautiful. It still has the new car smell. The art work is very nice throughout. We ate at the buffet for lunch. It is a bit small but the food was excellent. I love the salad bar. I also like how they serve you. I am a germaphobe so I think it’s best not to have everyone’s fingers all over everything. 

 

The crows nest EXC area is wonderful. I love the interactive screens. The main pool

area is also nice. 

 

We we signed up for the thermal spa. It cost $299 per couple. It is limited so I suggest you buy early. I’ll post about our experiences. 

 

I also got the coke drink package($68) for the week and the premium internet package($166) for the cruise. 

 

Below I have the MDR menus and the first what’s happening. I also have a couple of pictures of our room. 

 

Now it’s nap time. More to to come later.
