Nieuw Amsterdam — Ship Review Rating: 4.1 out of 5 based on 9 ratings.

Life aboard Nieuw Amsterdam
Until March 2020 Nieuw Amsterdam sails out of Fort Lauderdale to the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Most cruises berth at four ports, including company resorts at Half Moon Cay and Amber Cove, with their private beaches and water sports. The other ports take you, variously, to old pirate haunts, swimming among ray fish, or a touch of Mexico. Itineraries are mostly 7 nights, or by joining cruises take a 14-night holiday. In April 2020 cross the Atlantic and visit 14 ports in the Mediterranean on the way to Venice. Then for most of 2020 Nieuw Amsterdam offers two 12-night cruises of the classic ports of the Eastern Mediterranean (even to Istanbul). Join these for a 24-night specialty. From November 2020 Nieuw Amsterdam is again in the Caribbean, repeating her two 7-night itineraries. Hallmarks of HAL include spacious staterooms and public areas, rich timber furnishings set with museum-quality paintings and antiques, discreet personal service, and artful itineraries that allow for overnights in key cities. Holland America Line arranges excellent onshore tours, and pre- and post-tour packages.

Nieuw Amsterdeam is Cruise Critic’s Cruisers’ Choice 2015 for “Best Overall Large Ship.” She features HAL’s Signature of Excellence program: the Pinnacle Grill alternative restaurant, a new Pan-Asian Restaurant, the Neptune Lounge for suite guests, and the Culinary Arts Centre with demonstration kitchen. Appealing to older guests are the traditional features – high tea, formal nights, antique displays and ballroom dancing – while contemporary features appeal to younger guests. You will appreciate HAL’s excellent service and onboard atmosphere, as attested to by the high rate of returning passengers. Tips and gratuities are additional to your fare, and be assured your Indonesian and Filipino stewards and their families back home are greatly benefitted. Crew members are very loyal to HAL.

Accommodation
Of the staterooms, 85% have an outside view, and of these four-fifths have a private balcony. Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view, some with panoramic windows; and three levels of suites – Pinnacle, Neptune and Signature. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding, Elemis Aromapure bath amenities, bathrobes, fresh fruit, shoeshine and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Triple and quad cabins are available, as well as interconnecting cabins for up to six guests. There are 29 wheelchair-accessible staterooms, mostly near elevators. There are no single cabins.

Suites are significantly larger, lavish, and come with a full-size bath. The sitting area has a double sofa bed. The Pinnacle and Neptune Suites have the services of a personal concierge and access to the private Neptune Lounge with large screen TV, library, sofas, and socialising with other suite guests. Extra amenities include priority boarding and dining requests, complimentary laundry and pressing services, and a cocktail party with ship officers. Pinnacle Suites have in addition a microwave oven, pantry for meal preparation, whirlpool bath for four, and of course so much extra space at 108 m2 plus balcony. Some of the cabin categories have ‘Spa’ staterooms that come with spa-related amenities and extras, and easy access to the spa facilities.

Food and Dining
The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open- The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The Master Chefs’ three-course menus are excellent, and waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests can be ordered pre-cruise. Two nights in seven are formal nights, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Show Lounge or a musical recital. There are three alternative restaurants, all best to reserve in advance: The Pinnacle Grill for steaks and seafood, the renowned Asian-themed Tamarind offers cuisine from across SE and E Asia, and the (no service charge) Italian-American-influenced Canaletto. Ask about wine packages.

The Lido Restaurant, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, has two serving lines during the day offering food cooked à la minute, and at night opens as a popular and casual bistro. Outside meal times it serves sandwiches, ice cream, and special late-night offerings. Additionally there are pool-side burgers, hot dogs, Mexican food, and a coffee bar. Relax in Explorations Café, a gathering place that mixes together a library and coffee bar where one can check email or read the morning paper. Afternoon tea, the occasional High Tea, and the ice cream bar provide in-between snacks.

Entertainment
At night the two-deck Vista Show Lounge offers (twice nightly) musical productions, cabaret, and its features include three video screens. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. Three outstanding musical options are: the Lincoln Center Stage chamber music (seats 100); Billboard Onboard, with two pianos and a chance to join the singing; and B.B.King’s Blues Club. View recent movies in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a Sea Day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.

By day there are Bridge, Bingo, trivia games, Sudoku, cooking demos, movies and the like. Book early for the for-fee culinary workshops and wine tastings in the Wayang Theatre and Culinary Arts Centre. The Microsoft Digital Workshops include photography, creating web-sites and blogs, making a vacation video, and one-on-one coaching. The fresh-water Lido deck pool, flanked by two hot tubs, has a retractable cover. The Retreat is a private resort-style pool offering sophisticated poolside amenities and service. The giant Greenhouse Spa includes sauna, steam rooms, treatment rooms, and a fully-equipped gymnasium with circuit-training and fitness classes. There are also courts and a jogging course. Children are catered for at Club HAL (for ages 3-7 and 8-12 years), and teenagers socialise at The Loft and The Oasis. Sports include basketball and volleyball.
