Holland America MS Amsterdam – Day 3 Pt. 3 – May 2015 – Sea Day

(Continued from Day 3, Pt. 2) …  After the Mongolian Barbeque, we set off to go get a few photos of the “Wajang Theater”  This is where they show movies several times a day, as well as carrying on culinary demonstrations.  The movie screen drops down in front of the cooking demo area (which is quite a nice cooking demo area).  During our cruise, they showed “Taken 3”, “Macfarland, USA” , and “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb”.  These movies would also play the next day on repeat on your television in your room.  It turned out that this was a good way to wind down at night sometimes.  We had hoped to go to the movies in the theater, but never ended up making it.  We were probably too busy foraging for our next snack or meal.

Before our cruise, since we were traveling with teenagers, we had looked for information about this theater, but had found nothing.  We had also hoped to find at least some sort of idea of what movies were playing in there.  We were unable to find such info, so hopefully someone can find this, and know what types of films were playing there, as well as what the venue looks like.

Another nice thing that was available was the ability to “rent” a movie on DVD for your cabin, which had a DVD player already connected to your television.  You could either go to the front desk to borrow the film, or you could call up the front desk and have it delivered.  The teens ordered a few “rentals” to watch, and went to the front desk to check them out.  This turned out to be a nice thing to have, since the activity options for them were limited to some extent.  There was a pretty decent selection of DVDs available, and a book in the cabin that had the movies listed.

Not as much because we were hungry (we weren’t… surprisingly)… but we had looked forward to tea time while onboard.  So, we went down to the main dining room to go to tea time.  We got there near the end, and got a table where we could sit and sip tea while eating tiny snack cakes and sandwiches.  There was a nice variety of mostly cakes and such.  I had two little sandwiches, and the kids leaned more toward the cakes (surprise!).

Along with the snacks, as one may expect, they had a good selection of teas to choose from.  We sat and chatted and had a few little snacks… generally having a pleasant time together.

After leaving tea time, I imagine we wandered around just waiting for our next meal… or at least that’s probably what it seems like while reading this review.  (Note to self:  since this review thing is something I plan on doing again… I maybe should take notes of what I do during the day) 🙂  . … (Continue to Day 3, Pt. 4)

  1. In all my HAL cruises I have never been to tea. Must make it next time. Love your pictures and commentary. I have to make notes or I will forget from one day to another. Thanks for the posts.

    1. Yeah… Taking notes will be a definite help. My memory is honestly rubbish, so the easiest thing to reconstruct is the one thing that I KNOW that I did several times each day… and that’s EAT. But, beyond that… the website is called BonVoyage BITES for a reason :^) The next trip that gets reviewed will hopefully be more thorough. (Coming in October— Navigator of the Seas, 7 Days from Galveston)
