  3. Nieuw Amsterdam
Venice' hotel was nice clean and a bus was just outside of hotel to centre of Venice.nieuw Amsterdam we got to Dubrovnik and had a lovely day we were looking forward to kotor, Corfu, Florence, and Livorno but we didn't get there.Thecaptain announced he couldn't get to these ports because of storms yet the oceanana p/0 was mourned next to us and got there in time,if he had left at his usual time of 8 30 am he would of made it ahead of storm, but wot he did was leave at 3 am then told us his dicision.they was passages from Australia,Canada,and America they were angry we were fuming,food in dining room was good and I have to mention Aston our mature Dee he was great, so was our waiters, Kember,Ackmad were really good.our room service was fab too Kandal,and Poni thanks.entertainment well wot can I say the piano man was good also B B kings,but dancers we saw them 3 times and were rubbish bar service was ok agirl called Belinda was all smiles all the time, also take note the indonesions crew were fantastic and having them throw bottles up in the air for our enjoyment was so crazy they don't get paid enough.we will never go on Hal again we were celebrating our 38 yrs anniversary I felt like a prisoner on the ship as we never got off nothing to do during the day and going through the storms was horrible I don't think this ship can cope with storms we have cruised on Cunard ,princess,Asamara and all were fantastic but never ever sail on Holland America.
