Holland America's New Amsterdam

LoveWe are planning our first cruise with Holland America on the New Amsterdam. Leaving from Venice Italy and cruising the Greek Isles and Turkey. I can find very few updated reviews of this ship and none on this particular cruise. If anyone has any info on this particular cruise I would appreciate hearing from them. We are planning on a balcony stateroom on an upper deck. Food and entertainment are important to us as well as a clean ship. Please let me know. Thanks.

Here is a review of Nieuw Amsterdam cruise to Greece and the mediterranean last August: http://cruiseline.com/ship/nieuw-amsterdam/review/382394

Once you get to the ship reviews page, simply click on "Europe - Mediterranean" to filter all reviews by a destination.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but I just wanted to say that the trip sounds like a blast and I hope you enjoy yourself. :)

I love HAL and am taking a cruise in a few days on the Amsterdam. I haven' traveled on this particular ship but you can expect fine service and good food. Please write a review after your cruise so we will have an up to date one. Enjoy your cruise. Gloria

I just got off the ms Amsterdam taking a Grand Voyage followed by a Panama Canal 14-night full transit. The ship was fine

. There was a big difference in the atmosphere of the ship between the two cruises but I loved both. My only real complaint and this may not bother you but there was no fridge in our cabin. I think that only the suites have a fridge. I was told that I could rent one for $2 a day. That would have cost me $188 for the 94 days that I was on board. I could have bought one for that amount of money, Laugh, laugh. The photo shows my favorite place on the ship - the ice cream station.

The entertainment varies from cruise to cruise. Just the singers and dancers stay the same. Since I was on two long cruises I saw the same dancers & singers shows several times & I still enjoyed it. Here's a photo of one of the entertainers.
