  3. Amsterdam
This is our second cruise on the lovely Amsterdam, and we were pleasantly surprised with her face lift! For an 18 year old lady, she is a gem. We stayed in a Lanai Cabin, and there isn't anything better. Ms Amsterdam had an interior makeover in May of this year, and she is just like new. We loved the colors, the decor, and the new stateliness she exudes. The Lanai cabins are new to this ship, and they are the absolute best location for us. We could enter through the hallway on the main deck, or enter and exit through our sliding Lanai door onto our entire 3rd deck balcony. An added plus to this ship is the amazing crew. Everyone was welcome and happy and most pleasant to be around. We understand there is a new Hotel Director, and it is obvious the crew loves him. Leadership matters! Finally, Ms Amsterdam is still my favorite ship!

I love Ms Amsterdam!

Cabin Review

Lanai Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin CA 3343
Though our cabin is technically called a Lanai Ocean-View Stateroom, it is very similar, but better, to a balcony. The difference is that the balcony wraps all the way around the ship on deck 3. The colors were great, the new condition of the furnishings were an unexpected plus! I wish all ships have Lanai Ocean-View (balcony) staterooms. If you are on the cruise to sightsee from the deck (balcony) it doesn't get any better than this!
