Top Class Service and facilites

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

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 More 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. Less

Cabin review: Nieuw Amsterdam Deluxe Verandah Suite Rotterdam 4138

Cabin 4138 was very quiet, close to the restaurant, but no noise at all. Near the elevators.

Port and Shore Excursions


Get a cab to the fort and walk the fort walls. Then wander around Dubrovnik, find a bar and enjoy the views

We enjoyed the hop on hop off bus in Naples, gives a great overview of the good and the bad in Naples. The bay of Naples is just splendid, great views from the bus. We had no safely issues in Naples.

Easy to do on your own. Get the people mover from the port, one stop to the bus station and walk around Venice. Only a euro for the people mover each way and 20 minutes walk to St Marks square.
