Brief Update/Review Nieuw Statendam Dec. 1-15, 2019 photo links, turnaround details

Recommended Posts

Currently at the airport ready to head home after two great weeks on Nieuw Statendam. Loved the ship the food, the service and the music walk. But was not impressed with the lack of World Stage Entertainment/Shows.

 

Shout out to Andre at Grand Dutch Cafe who made us our Aspen Coffee's we love. Didn't matter what he made for us the attention to detail and service was fantastic. Added photos to see his excellent work.

 

Club Orange staff, Dewa and Bagus were amazing.

Tamarind servers, Sukma and Martha, Canaletto server Suvat again these people were amazing.

We will be making a special mention of all of them on our post cruise survey.

 

I've also add the menu's from Club Orange for our second week (except I missed one) and the When and Where's from our second week. Also added our Disembarkation Information letter we got on our last night. FYI, we were Pink 2 and scheduled disembark at 8-8:15 AM. We walked off got our luggage very efficiently no issues and made our way to the airport, I don't think the whole disembark process to more than 15 minutes.

 

Looking forward to another HAL cruise in the future will have to try a different class ship to see what they have to offer.

 

Again anyone interested in photo's check out my first post that has links to all of them...

SOP for wheelchair assist is to set up a meeting place, usually the Ocean Bar, to report to about 15 minutes before your color/number is to be called. 
When you arrive there, you should look for the person in charge, and check in with them. Then sit and relax. When your turn has come, you will be seated in a wheelchair, and you and your party will disembark. This can take quite a while!

Many others, on other decks, are filling the elevators so it can be a few tries before you can get in. Remember, the wheelchair takes up a lot of room. If an elevator comes by and there's room for one person in your party, let that person meet you in the terminal as soon as they leave the ship. 

You will be wheeled to the baggage collection area, a porter will be called to take your luggage, and you will be wheeled to your ongoing transportation. 

All this can take a long time! Take an extra large dose of patience that morning, and give yourself double the time an able-bodied person would need.

Thank you for your reply.  Did Holland offer the Luggage Valet?
