A great time!

Sail Date: March 04, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overall the experience was wonderful. We enjoyed meeting folks from other countries and sampling international cuisine. Ship decor was nice and clean; staff very friendly.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Food - many menu selections were too spicy or too salty; would have liked some basic dessert options like pie or pudding.

Recommends Nieuw Amsterdam? Yes!

Service and Staff
Always friendly and helpful.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Inform guests about what dining options will be like; i.e. spicy or salty. Provide more options for desserts - pie, puddings.
Cabin / Stateroom
Shower too small but overall okay since we did not spend much time in the room.
The two commedy acts and Cantare singers were great but daytime options too repetitious. More music during ship time would be nice, especially during afternoons / happy hour.
