SEATING FOR DINNER WAS MESSED UP FROM THE FIRST NIGHT WE WERE ON THE CRUISE. EACH NIGHT WAS AN ISSUE. WAITING HOURS FOR FOOD TO ARRIVE. AIR CONDITIONER IN ONE CABIN NOT WORKING, WAS NOT FIXED UNTIL OUR LAST NIGHT. CARDS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. FEES ADDED THAT WE WERE NOT AWARE OF AT THE TIME OF BOOKING! WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH HOLLAND AMERICA AGAIN!

Good value - refurbished ship, great destination, friendly crew, good venues, and very good food. Entertainment program could be better, otherwise great experience!

Very disappointed. I've been on more than 15 cruises including three long holiday cruises on HAL This was the most boring ever. The Lido had the only good food and that's not typical of HAL. The ship was lovely and the cabin and ship staff were excellent, but not the wait staff.

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.

We did seating with a large group at late dinner and had a riot, but people liked as you wish dining as well. Lido can be chaotic at lunch and they stop serving full lunch at 2p port days, but still have a terrific salad bar. The Dive In hambergers and chicken sandwiches are good.

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.
