When planning how to celebrate one of those birthdays that end in a zero, I knew I wanted to be at my favorite beach on Half Moon Cay. This meant a Holland America cruise (yay!) and there were going to be two ships there on my birthday.
The itinerary we picked is the same one I sailed on the Eurodam in 2014; although I wasn’t excited about the hours in San Juan, the other three ports were perfect.
The two ships that were going to be at Half Moon Cay on my special day were the Koningsdam and the Nieuw Statendam; two sister ships in the Pinnacle class. The Konigsdam was doing a 11 day sailing while the other was a traditional seven day sailing. That made my decision plus the Nieuw Statendam was only going to be a few months old at the time of sailing which was a plus.
Things I’m looking forward to on this ship include:
- Music walk
- Dutch Cafe
- New Pinnacle Grill menu
- The world stage
Of course, I’m looking forward to excellent service, beautiful flowers and stunning art as with all Holland America ships. It won’t be long to celebrate!
