Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Review to Transatlantic
Review SummaryOverall, the New Amsterdam is an excellent addition to the HAL fleet. Compared with other HAL ships, it is maybe a little more modern (sterile is too strong) for my particular taste, but thus it answers to its New York theme. Although my husband and I prefer the Rotterdam, the New Amsterdam is larger, offers more in the way of entertainment and has in addition to the excellent Pinnacle Grill, the Tamarind Restaurant for Asian flavors, which is a delight. Like all HAL ships, the New Amsterdam has the great Promenade Deck where walking is a pleasure. With two pools (one salt water) this ship should offer much to all who are looking for a larger, but still intimate cruising experience.
