Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 24, 2016
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 4179
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The service in the main dining room was so slow!!!  We chose to go to the special dining areas and had wonderful meals.  Every member of the staff (excluding dining room waiters) was very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful.  We still wish staterooms had digital clocks and night lights in the bathroom, but we brought our own this time.  Both embarkation and disembarkation were remarkably smooth.

It seemed smaller than previous balcony cabins we have had. The closet was one door short and the bath seemed small too. We enjoyed the clear wall on the balcony.
