Nieuw Amsterdam Cruises

4.1
(from 9 verified customers)

Taking her maiden voyage in 2010, the Nieuw Amsterdam can carry up to 2106 passengers with a 86,700 GT. 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.

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.)
