November 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam
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.
