Recommends Amsterdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was immaculately cared for and extremely clean. Our rooms were convenient to everything and very spacious. We used our balcony\, whirlpool tub\, the spa\, the gym\, the walking deck 3\, dining room\, lido\, pools\, lounges--every area was perfect. We never felt cramped and there were always plenty of comfortable places to be\, whether in our own cabin or relaxing somewhere else.
Food and Dining
I had difficulty with variety for a vegan special diet as well as the timing of dining and ordering special meals. Items in Lido aren't labeled and to get anything substantial\, it had to be ordered from the dining room and then delivered to my cabin\, the take it to Lido (because dining room was too slow). Amazing selection of fresh fruit and veggies\, just not much else in the way of vegan nutrition (no beans\, few nuts\, tofu by request only\, soy milk not readily available) and no vegan desserts\, just fruit and salad and special orders.
Cabin / Stateroom
Spacious because there is so much storage. We were so glad we got the balcony.
Service and Staff
Every person on board seemed genuinely happy to help EVERY time\, with authentic generosity and enthusiasm. Such awesome customer service.
Loved the clean comedian and juggler. There were enough activities that everyone in my family (6 people) had plenty to choose from based on their unique interests. That was really really nice for everyone to \"choose\" their own experience.
