Terrific cruise!

Sail Date: November 22, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a wonderful cruise - our room stewards were great and anticipated our every need.  Food was excellent, especially when we splurged one night and went to the Pinnacle Restaurant.  Drink prices were reasonable, although it's time for cruise lines to make fountain soft drinks (not bottles or cans) included in the price of the cruise like basic coffee or tea.  We didn't do any shore excursions so can't comment on those.  Bingo was great - in fact, I won a 7 day free cruise for two!  Didn't spend much time in the casino although I heard people raving about it.  The Nieuw Amsterdam was spotless both in our cabin and the public areas.  Would definitely sail with Holland America and the Nieuw Amsterdam again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was spacious, right at the front of the ship. Room stewards were excellent - we'd want to sail in that cabin again.
