The Amsterdam was decked out for the Holidays. Christmas trees everywhere.. Santa came on Christmas morning and the kids loved it. He gave out toys and posed for photos.

Sail away parties at most ports were very nice also.

Tables for 2 were hard to come by in all the restaurants except the Pinnacle. Eat there as often as you can afford it ($25 pp)
