Nieuw Amsterdam

February 2016 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Caribbean - Eastern

First Time Cruise on Holland America

This was my first time cruising and I had a great time!  The quick version is this:  beautiful ship, great staff (especially the Lido deck cabaña staff), fun entertainment (comedian and juggler were awesome). The ship never felt crowded. The food was problematic for me - I'm dairy free and, while they knew that upon my arrival, none of the food staff knew what was in the food, there were no labels and 95% of it had dairy.  For example, there were no desserts that were dairy free except plain fruit.  The spa was beautiful but the staff less than helpful.  Overall, a great cruise.

SherylTrent's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - You don't have to take a paid tour, you can walk yourself and see most of the sites and go at your own pace.
Nieuw Amsterdam Nieuw Amsterdam - We had as you wish dining but after the first night in the Main Dining Room I gave up (the wait staff had no idea if there was any dairy in any of the meals and had no options). Ate at Tamarind and it was amazingly good, highly recommend it.
Grand Turk Island - Don't do the reef snorkel. The reef is mostly dead with almost no life. The stingray experience was fun.
