Nieuw Amsterdam

October 2016 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Panama Canal, Central America

Memorable Times

We began our cruise from San Francisco. Since it was "Fleet Week" we had a rare opportunity to see the "Blue Angels" soar through the sky. Another memorable experience was going through the Panama Canal.  Prior to going through the canal we attended a lecture relating to the history of all the unbelievable events that took place while building the Panama Canal.  We enjoyed snorkeling in Cabo .We enjoyed a our tour in Costa Rica (Tropical Train and Mangrove. The other ports we enjoyed walking and seeing some of the country.  There were 8 port days and 8 sea days. We would have liked more port days. However, the ship staff was excellent. We attended most evening shows. Enjoyed dining at three different specialty restaurants. We chose open seating and requested and received tables of 4 or 6 and met and enjoyed meeting some very interesting people.

Oosterdam

November 2015 - Oosterdam to Caribbean - Southern

Twenty-One days of memories

First, the weather was fantastic. All the ports provided opportunities to enjoy whatever they had to offer and the excursions we booked were fun and greatly enjoyable. Our stateroom stewards were excellent.. I was disappointed that our veranda was obstructed. We were not on the Veranda Deck where one can see the ocean from anywhere in the stateroom. In one of the specialty restaurants the service was very slow. The food on the Lido deck was satisfactory but not outstanding.  The Maître'd in the Vistia Dining Room was wonderful and the service was excellent. The evening shows were fun and very good. They have wonderful shipboard talent in addition to bringing in others during port stops to perform that evening. . I understand I the ship will be going into dry dock soon for much needed updating. All in all this was a very enjoyable experience.
