Staff very friendly and helpful, although one staff member in photography could have had an attitude adjustment. Overall, very clean, very efficiently run, fun place to play. The experience was fabulous, and the exit and entry to various ports of call were made very smooth and efficient.

Really need to redesign the pool. Too small for the passengers it serves.

Amazing city. One place I would love to explore for longer than a day. Dining was seriously overpriced and obviously designed to hit the wallet of tourists. Otherwise incredible experience that should not be missed.

Absolutely stunning place and it is the picture postcard image of what one visualizes of the Med.

Very (VERY) crowded. I think best time of year to visit would be in late August as it was incredible hot.

Pros: Well run, very clean ship. Service was excellent.

Cons: Swimming pools were small which made them very crowded. Beware wet deck are very slick. They pushed the retail a bit too hard for my liking, and it would have been nice to find some boutique styled clothing than just the typical t-shirt.

Recommends Nieuw Amsterdam? Yes!
