April 2015 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Transatlantic
Our cruise on the Zaandam in Nov 2014 was one of our best cruises. The entertainment was excellent and the food selection was great. I cannot say this for the Nieuw Amsterdam. The entertainment was poor. We went to all of the shows but we only stayed for three of them. We left the others after 5-10 min because they were so bad. The entertainment in the lounges was also poor. The selection of food in the main dining room was well below average compared to other cruises we have been on. Lido food was OK. We were awakened around 7AM each morning with grinding and knocking sounds below our cabin.
