Nieuw Amsterdam

November 2015 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Caribbean - Western

Relaxing, mundane cruise on nice ship

Very nice cruise, lovely ship, but you'd better be looking to just relax, be cause the entertainment was quite sparse. Very little opportunity to dance and the customer base did not seem to be big socializers.

Food was good but very redundant and uninspired with the exception of the Thai cuisine,

Employees were great, cruise director was pretty much out of sight, nice library with a unhappy librarian. Cabins were very nice and had the largest closet space of any we'd seen on other lines. Did not like the swing-out balcony door.

Contrary to what we expected, guests did not really go out of their way to dress on Gala nights.

Celebrity Eclipse

October 2014 - Celebrity Eclipse to Europe - Western Europe

Best Cruise Yet!

The ship was beautiful, clean, spacious. The grass on the top deck was awesome!

Cabins were spotless and baths were large. There is limited drawer space.

Crew was excellent in every respect.

Cruise Director was top notch.

Food was above average from other lines we have been on.

Itinerary was great. Ports were interesting, weather was warm and there were enough At Sea days to get to relax.

Norwegian Dawn

September 2014 - Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda

Mediocre Experience

This cruise is a big step down in our experience from the Royal Caribbean Bermuda cruise out of NJ. We were disappointed in a few areas:

Food. The emphasis is heavily on eating and most restaurants are Premium cost. We tried three of the restaurants and had very mediocre dinners. The food in the main dining rooms was just as good as the "pay for" restaurants. As a matter of fact, we had a meal in the Bistro and it was by far the worst meal we've ever had in a restaurant at sea or ashore. We had one great meal at Cagney's but the second time was poor.

Seating areas. Most of the outdoor seating on the ship is lounge chairs. My disabled brother had difficulty finding a regular chair to sit in as there were very few to be had. No chairs on the Promenade deck. We found this lack of chairs odd and difficult for elderly or disabled.

Convenience. If you live in Boston, this is a good option for a quick 7 day cruise to a warm climate. The cruise was okay, but very lackluster. Nothing stood out except a few employees.

Staterooms. We've been on five different cruise lines and this room was by far the smallest of any. We were tripping over each other. However, the bathrooms were great and the rooms were very soundproof. The decorating is a little worn and our cabin wasn't the cleanest on embarkation, but that was taken care of by the staff.
