We are a couple in our early 60’s. We traveled with another couple. We stayed at the Homewood Suites downtown. We took an Uber to the port which was very close to the port at around 10:00 AM. We were on the ship by 11:45. We were able to go straight to our rooms. We had a nice quiet lunch in the main dining room. The Amsterdam is an amazing ship! Very clean and nicely decorated! Smaller ship but easy to get around. Since our cabin was on the 3rd floor it was very easy to get to the main dining room which was one floor up. Love being in the back of the ship.

Dining: We went to the Pinnacle Grill three times. Love the menu and the waiters and waitresses. Lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, lobster tail and filet were all so amazing! Also had the scallops, candy bacon and porterhouse! All were amazing. Wahyu and Kay were so amazing in the Pinnacle. We also went to the Canalleto one night. Liked their menu also. Mira and Carla were amazing and always friendly and nice when ever we saw them! The main dining room was great. We ate most of our meals there including a couple of lunches and breakfast. Amazing Amin, was one of our favorite waiters! Always had a smile on his face. The last at sea day they served surf and turf and shrimp cocktail in the dining room. Very good! The Lido serves an awesome breakfast. Lots of different juices.

Egg making station, pancakes etc station. Lunch they have a great salad station.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin EE

Loved our cabin. Promenade deck! Awesome location. Aft. Very quiet! Close to back door which leads to promenade deck in the back of the ship. Cabin was also close to side door leading to promenade deck. We had a couch, chair and small table in the room. The shower/tub combo gave us a lot of extra room to take a shower. Lots of storage. Two drawers under bed. Four suitcases fit under the bed. Our room steward was amazing. Rihaydi made towel animals all 14 days of our cruise. Ice in the room every day! Awesome room steward! No refrigerator in the room but the ice was nice to have. Liquid body soap, shampoo and conditioner provided in the shower.
