Nieuw Amsterdam

January 2016 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Caribbean - Eastern

Tropical Caribbean with Holland America

We left Fort Lauderdale for 4 ports on the Nieuw Amsterdam - Key West FL, Grand Turk, Dominican Republic & Half Moon Cay (private Island) Bahamas.  All the ports were nice with the later 3 truly beaches in paradise.  We also did 2 excursions where one was not great and one was outstanding.

This was our first H.A. cruise and the ship was nice plus the staff very good as well although not outstanding.  We had no issues but the only thing we were somewhat disappointed in was the buffet restaurant as compared to other cruises lines - limited stations, variety, shorter hours and not open self-serve.  The evening entertainment wasn't as good either.

All in all we had a great time despite some rough seas.

Legend of the Seas

January 2015 - Legend of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

11 Night Southern Caribbean w/ Legends & 6 ports was awesome

The ship and staff were great as well as the food.  It was great to see 6 different ports of call with a variety of differences.  We had some rough seas and a couple days of rain but in all had a great time.  The biggest downside was perhaps the lack of details and logistics on shore excursions plus the local drivers at some made you hang on for dear life.  Wouldn't hesitate on selecting the cruise line or agent again.

March 2014 - Celebrity Reflection to Caribbean - Eastern

Coral Princess

May 2012 - Coral Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Brogie's Tips

Castries, St. Lucia - Very diverse scenery / landscape/ banana plantation with inactive volcano, hot springs and botanical gardens very nice.
St. George's, Grenada - Flat bottom boat ride a little disappointing as most coral / bottom destroyed by a hurricane 8-10 years ago just coming back now.
Oranjestad, Aruba - Wanted to do baby beach but ended up at Eagle. Disappointed with the slope of the sand down to the water but very beautiful.
Legend of the Seas Legend of the Seas - Generally very elegant like most cruise lines; a couple of areas (poolside & casino) did have some smoking not well segregated but otherwise was very nice.
