Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Review by MarcNXX
- Sail Date: February 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
We chose Holland America line because of the ports and good value for money, as described in many other reviews, they service is towards older people. But still an reasonable amount of 20 / 30 year old.
We had a forward balcony stateroom on deck 4. The room was just right for two of us.
well appointed, very quiet, and with a wonderful balcony. We spent every evening and many hours of the day on the balcony, enjoying sound of the sea and the view of the water and stars.
Food ranged from good to very good. Room service was efficient and complimentary. we enjoyed two dinners in the dining room, 1 in Cannaleto and the others in the Lido.. We where sitting at a table of 6 with an older American couple and Canadian woman in the dining room. Although our large age difference we had nice talks about traveling and cruising.
If we need to say something we did not like, it was the temperature in all the public spaces, far to COLD, sometimes feels like walking in a mortuary.
Make sure to have a sweater with you and you will be fine
We really enjoyed our first time cruise!
Also. the amount of effort HAl puts in sanitizing is insane. Everywhere you find small stations with alcohol dispenser and even the public restrooms onboard are very clean. you have to open the door with an towel to leave the restroom, something we have never experienced before in Europe. Well done Hal
