Nieuw Amsterdam

I would like some feed back on this ship, I am 52 and this will be my first cruise. However my concern is that the ship could lack in the category of entertainment and in any nightlife.....dancing. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Will be going in Feb 2015 to Caribbean.

May I ask what age group you are in, I am 52, my first cruise and I was told I would be the youngest on ship. That concerns me, because with all the reviews I have read it looks like there is not any dancing, if there is it ends at 9 pm. I appreciate any feedback on your experience. thank you!

Hi Veda,

If you haven't already, read our verified reviews and ship tips for Nieuw Amsterdam here:

Holland America does tend to attract a slightly older clientele than some other lines, but the exact passenger mix will vary depending on the length of the cruise, itinerary and time of year. Seven nights in the Caribbean in February should be a good passenger mix, and you'll find plenty of entertainment options. However, you may find the nightlife a bit more subdued than some of the other lines. If you're looking for all night dancing in the disco or a "party" vibe, you'd do well to consider some other options, but if you just want the opportunity to dance and enjoy some good entertainment, you'll likely enjoy the Nieuw Amsterdam.
