  3. Nieuw Amsterdam
After done cruises on seven different cruise lines I can compare Holland America cruse experience:1. The ship interior design is contemporary, similar to average Vegas style hotel. There is missing flavor of luxury.2. Dining is very good, especially in Pinnacle. Downside- If you have a main sitting - don't be late more than 15 minutes, otherwise full menu selection is not guarantee. For your $7.00 USD you'll have a glass of 100ml of cheap wine, better to buy wine in ports and bring with you on board. 3. Entertainment is horrible. 4. Ports: Too many Greece ports (3), it would be better to stay overnight somewhere else instead.5. Cabin and cabin service is very good.6. Casino as always is rip-off; there is no pay back whatever you try. Take your money to Vegas you'll have more chances.7. On board activities are wishing to be better.Overall rating: 7 out of 10

Expect more- got less. It was just Ok
