7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 27, 2011
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was spotless, service was amazing in both the cabins and the dining room and Lido. The food was excellent...it is amazing they can serve hundreds of meals at a time that are as well-presented as they are.

The food quality and taste were amazing. The fresh breads and pastries were excellent.

The evening programs were very good.

Children's Programs

Our younger kids thoroughly enjoyed Club HAL and they had enough staff so the kids did not get lost or left-out.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The dining room and cabin attendants could not do enough for us...they seemed disappointed we did not ask them to do more!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship had a layout similar to the ms Westerdam so it was easy to find our way around. The ship was kept spotless via regular, aggressive cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The staterooms were in excellent condition and maintained impeccably. The size of the cabin was excellent and we enjoyed the central location on the ship.
3 out of 5
The port itself is mainly a commercial enterprise. We went to the Mayan ruins...next time we will probably just go to the beach.
