Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Review by paul.shearman
- Sail Date: July 2016
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
We ate in the Lido, the common eating area and we impressed by it - much better than the 'trough' we had experienced on a different cruise. We also ate at two of the fine dining areas and both were excellent.
Our accommodation with very good. It was bigger than we thought it might be and the cleaners did a great job of keeping the room and bathroom clean and neat.
We have had other experiences on different cruise lines and were not very impressed. So it was a very pleasant surprise to experience the Holland America organisation. The drinks packages were also surprisingly reasonable with a 1 litre bottle of gin and two cans of tonic for $33 Canadian dollars.
The organisation of the ship allowed a lot of areas where we could sit quietly and talk if we wanted to, but also offered other areas where quiet music was played or more upbeat stuff was played.
