Smooth sailing on board the Nieuw Amsterdam !
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
On to St Thomas, we were docked in Crown Bay which is nice. Took the tram to Paradise Point for photos and drinks ! Great place !
The next stop was Half Moon Cay, rented a clamshell for the day and soaked up the warm temperature. Holland America has a magnificent BBQ on the beach and the food and drinks were delicious.
I cannot say enough good things about the ship and her crew. They work together like a well oiled machine. We More lacked for nothing on our voyage. No hassles, The entertainment was a pleasure, the musicians were easy on the ears and a lot of fun. There are many nooks inside the ship where one can go to enjoy quiet moments, I really enjoyed that. The gym was well equipped to work off all that fabulous food they prepared. It was all very fresh and tasty. I did not have a bad meal. The sushi was superb ! With all that said.....I had a wonderful cruise experience and cannot wait to sail on HAL again !!! I give the Nieuw Amsterdam 5 stars !!! Less
Cabin review: 4064
Our cabin was very nice. The floor to ceiling windows were great. We had a bit of a view between 2 lifeboats which was fine with us. The bathtub was a plus and the shower roomy. There was plenty of storage. We each had 3 drawers and a closet. There was an extra closet that we didn't even use ! Very spacious, bright, and quiet.
