Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Standard Interior Stateroom

Let me preface my remarks by saying we have taken one to two cruises per year from 2006 to the present. We’ve been on at least a dozen different ships and NEVER experienced anything like this.

I booked fifty (50) nights on the Nieuw Amsterdam (April 8 thru May 28) based on the reputation they have enjoyed through the years.

I can not begin to tell you how disappointed we are with Holland America. If not for their wonderful staff, their “service” would be without any redeeming value.

Cabin Review

Standard Interior Stateroom

Cabin M

Constant, ship wide, vibration caused our cabin to have a chorus of squeaks, chirps, and ticking sounds.
