We did a back to back on the Nieuw Amsterdam using covid future cruise credits. We took the offer to upgrade to a sky suite & it was well worth it. Except for the internet... Slow, unreliable & a headache..
Room attendant, Meals, bar-staff & ship were excellent!
Because were were on the 2nd week we didn't have to go thru the cattle call embarkation with no room to sit the week before.
The Sky Suite had lots of room, large balcony & my Wife & I both had a desk. Out Attendant was superb! Specialty & main dining met or exceeded our expectations. Good company and interesting conversations with our other cruise guests.
We took the upgrade offer and while we wouldn't take it every cruise it was a pleasant experience.
