Sail Date: June 17, 2012
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago

I thought that the ship was poorly laid out. The 10th and 11th floors were in 3 seperate sections. To go form one to the other you had to go down to deck 9 walk through the pool area to get to another section.

Food and Dining

Service in the main dining room was very below average. The food at breakfast on the Lido deck was usually cold.

Ship Quality

The isles on the Lido deck where the food was served were very narrow. Everyone was running into each other.
