Alaskan Adventure by Dono797

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam

It was restful, fun and most of all great without alot of unruly kids with drunken parents. The staff was phenomenal!!! Food was exceptional both in presentation and taste. Shows were entertaining. Cabin was wonderful bed extremely comfortable. I can't say anything but good things about it. My husband on the other hand was disappointed that there was no duck hunt on the cruise. (On our honeymoon cruise they hid rubber ducks all over the ship that you had to find and he missed that, yes it was a Holland America cruise, it was just a cute fun thing to do. And no, even though I wanted to, I did not strangle my husband because he complained about no duck hunt every other day on our Anniversary cruise) Seriously he had a great time too, he admitted it was better than he expected and he loves cruising on Holland America too.

Tremendous Cruise and Weather by oldcycle

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Beautiful weather, nice ship and attentive crew. Food was excellent esp. in Tamarind, but drinks are way too pricey. Lincoln center stage was an unexpected pleasure.

Ask to be seated at a larger table for dinner. You will meet the most fascinating people. We had as you wish dining and it was painless.

Lido for breakfast and lunch; dining room for dinner.

The Nieuw Amsterdam will put you in the lap of luxury. If you enjoy "dressing up" in your finest, dining on fine cuisine, and enjoying showroom entertainment without lineups, you'll love the elegance of HAL.
