Every stateroom aboard Nieuw Amsterdam includes two beds (which can be converted to a queen-sized bed) with Sealy Euro-Top mattresses and upgraded cotton bedding. You'll find a flat-screen TV in each room, programed with a limited number of stations and movies, plus interactive options for previewing the nightly dining menu, as well as forward and aft ship views. There's a small desk and chair, couch/sitting area with table, a three-door closet space with interior full-length mirror, adjustable shelving, a safe and storage cubbies above the couch. A mini-fridge is stocked with sodas and liquor, available for purchase.
Two bedside tables include a shelf and two drawers (one drawer can be locked), and there are also adjustable bedside reading lights. A recent ship refurbishment added useful cellphone charging ports and plugs right at the bedside table areas. There are bathrobes hanging in the closet and a hair dryer with an above-average power level compared to other cruise dryers. There are also several hooks for hanging robes and towels.
Sofa beds are only available in suites and staterooms with third- and fourth-person capacity (which are available in every category).
You'll insert your key card into a slot by the door to turn on power in your cabin, which is both a clever green energy solution and also a good way to keep track of your key.
Each bathroom includes an upgraded showerhead and Elemis-branded bath amenities (from wall-mounted dispensers to bottles of lotion). There are three small shelves that run alongside the bathroom mirror for toiletry storage.
The expanded storage options (in particular, the closet area, which is spacious for a cruise ship room) combined with extra service touches from your stateroom attendant make you feel truly pampered. Complimentary fresh fruit, such as bananas, apples and grapes, is provided to your stateroom daily (ask your stateroom attendant), and your ice bucket is refilled regularly. A nightly turndown service includes chocolates and towel animal creations, and 24-hour room service is complimentary.
