Beautiful ship; understaffed
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The thermal suites in the spa were AMAZING! The ship has an awesome hydro pool. We visited the thermal suites/hydro pool every single day. That was money ($199 for two for the week) well spent.The mood of the crowd seemed rather quiet and so many of the rooms seemed underutilized. Many nights we would visit the Northern Lights dance club and there was not a single person there. There was no DJ in the Crows Nest and no dancing at all. On the Nieuw Amsterdam, we recall watching Sunday NFL games in the Queen's Lounge in front of a big screen. This time, the games were shown only at the Sports bar on small TV's and nothing was going on in the Queen's Lounge. We just got the feeling that most rooms were not being utilized to their full potential. Shopping seemed non-existent as the selection and scale of shops was far less than what we had experienced before. Also, our favorite bar, Mix was no where to be found on the Eurodam. The number and variety of activities throughout the day and evening also seemed sparse. Frankly, it was a bit boring compared to the other HAL cruises we've been on. Finally, the food was not that good in the main dining room and we were just really disappointed with it. I have to say that although the spa and great were great and the ship was beautiful, it was a dull cruise. Less
Cabin review: VA8165 Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Great balcony and not far from elevators. Ship movements were exaggerated but I think that is because we were on Deck 8. The Lido is right about the cabin and everyday there was some rattling noise coming from upstairs that was quite loud. If we had stayed in the cabin more I am sure it would have been annoying.Read All Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom (VA) Reviews >>
