Nieuw Amsterdam

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)

Sail date: February 03, 2019

Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam

Cabin type: Balcony

Traveled as: Large Group

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

Nice ship but food and service were lacking. Not much going on in the evenings. Scheduling dancing at 11:30pm for a ship-load of old people is ridiculous. Most other ships we’ve been on had dance music every evening after dinner. Even shopping was dull.
