Just got off the Nieuw Amsterdam 7-day cruise (12/28 to 1/4) and we had a very nice time. Currently, the Nieuw Amsterdam is traveling on 1 of 2 azipod’s because 1 is inoperative. The ship cancelled a 7 day cruise two weeks ago but instead of fixing the problem, the crew sailed with the ship to the Bahamas and they certified it there to run on one azipod instead of two. Because of this, our port times were reduced by a few hours at each location but the ship is safe and sound, just a little slow.
Some info we placed through the Navigator “feedback” section of the app:
We had a blast! Nice crew and nice passengers from around the world.
