Nieuw Amsterdam
7 Night Gems Of Spain (Barcelona To Rome)
Sail Date: October 19, 2015
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6033
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We spent extra days in Barcelona and Rome which worked out great.  The ship was a nice size with nothing ever too crowded or overbooked.  I have had better food and service in the main dining room on other ships.  This one was medium with relatively slow and inattentive service, in spite of us being seated at an undesirable table right by the serving station.

Food and Dining

Main dining room food/service was medium, but the buffet was very good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We didn't want to be busy all the time. This ship had all we needed and nothing was ever too crowded or over-booked, so we could do what we wanted, when we wanted to do it.

Loved the BB King Blues group, piano bar and the juggler/comic.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Cabin service and spa were very good. Main dining room service was slow and inattentive and less personal than I've experienced in the past.
