Ok cruise nothing fantastic

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The New Amsterdam is a nice ship.  Nothing fantastic.  It lacked activities, and food was disappointing.  Average age of the guests had to be 65.   Beds were excellent, The size of the bathroom was excellent.  There was a large closet for hanging close, but the room lacked drawer space.  You could fold down shelves in the closet.  Service was good.  All in all this would not be our top choice for a cruise line again. 

Cabin / Stateroom
It was very good. Just needed more drawer space.

Cleanliness was excellent, design was weird. not a good flow and we never did find the Asian restaurant.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Grand Turk Island We never made it to this port. The captain decided it was to windy to dock. This was the reason I booked this trip to get to Grand Turk.
