THE LUXURIOUS NIEUW AMSTERDAM EXCEEDED OUT EXPECTATIONS
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We saw the magician - comedian and found out that he was neither. The dog was the best thing in his act. We loved spending mornings in Explorations Cafe on the Observation Deck, afternoons in a deck chair on the Promenade Deck and evenings on our balcony. Sunset in Key West was a gala experience.
I have waited a while to complete this review to insure that the experiences were not clouded by the apres-vacation glow. They have not been.
Most of the people we meet had traveled HAL before and everyone was happy and boasted about the great times they had on other cruises as well as on this one.
Disembarkation took a little longer but was made pleasant with our fellow passengers singing Christmas carols.
I can't wait for the next cruise on HAL. Less
Cabin review: 8139
Wonderful cabin. Lots of room. A little noisy in the early morning and late night when the pool chairs are moved. But there are no other balconies above you so there is a tradeoff. Storage in so many places you can hide away everything and have room to move around. The couch is a nice place to sit. The bathroom is roomy.
