We travelled with friends in August on Verandah cabins deck 4. The cabins are spacious, wonderful bed, plenty of cupboards and drawers, has all that you would need. We were greeted with a free bottle of champagne and gift vouchers of $50.00 which we used for drinks. The food was consistantly of 5* quality as was the service.
Embarking took 10minutes as did dis-embarking. The only wait was for a cab at the terminal at Barcelona, a nightmare! I never waited more than a minute for an elevator and all the tours and tenders were extremely well organised.
The only con.........the ship has the most amazing bars, so beautiful, but the entertainment at night does not utilise them. The shows in the showroom were either fantastic or just horrible. The duo in the one bar were torable. The singer who moved from bar to bar had a fantastic voice but they only had her singing a few times. Think the entertaiment could be upped.
That said, if you did not enjoy the Niew Amsterdam, there has to be something wrong with you. Lovely ship and the staff!! Go Boosie, and regards to Andy, Topic and Rodimere who made our dining experience so special.
