Sailed on the Niew Amsterdam out of Barcelona for 7-day Mediterranean cruise. First time on Holland America and a good choice. Shore excursions were excellent - tour guides knowledgeable and pleasant. We had open seating and found while the food was very good in the main dining room\, seating for a party of two was not always easily had.

Pros: Ship's crew was experienced and very friendly - good service all around.

Cons: Did not ahave a very good alcoholic beverage package - not enough selections. You either had to purchase the very expensive package or pay individually for drinks.
