Holland America’s Nieuw Statendam has much to offer

By Robert N. Jenkins Art There’s no way to be certain which artworks in the brand-new cruise ship Nieuw Statendam will draw the most attention: Will it be the clear plexiglass, 5-foot-tall statue of David, a copy of Michelangelo’s masterwork, except this one is holding a cellphone in his lowered arm?

Cruising in the Far East with RCI & HAL: Shanghaied Again

ABOARD QUANTUM of the SEAS — Early this morning the Quantum cruised into the mouth of China’s Yangtze River and then turned left on to the Huangpu River.  After docking again at Shanghai’s Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal we had a late leisurely breakfast and waited to disembark after other passengers, as we can’t board the Westerdam until 11AM.  The Westerdam just happens to be conveniently docked bumper-to-bumper in front of the Quantum.  Nevertheless, clearing Chinese immigration in …

While the Zuiderdam is a Vista class ship carrying up to 1,900 passengers and a crew of 900, it is similar in many respects to the 2,137 passenger Signature class MS Eurodam which I wrote about previously ( www.AllThingsCruise.com/ …

‘Playing with food’ a passion for Holland America chef

As a youngster growing up in Austria, Rudi Sodamin would stand by his mother’s side in the family kitchen. He not only liked the smell and taste of food, he liked how it looked. To him, the colorful ingredients were like paint that an artist could use for an edible masterpiece. “Food is the paint of our lives,” he said. “Food is art.” At a pre-Seatrade Cruise Global lunch aboard the Holland America Eurodam in Fort Lauderdale …
