Yup. Short, but sweet. ----------------------> I guess I can't submit this short review, although I think I said it all in those 4 (four) words. Oh well. Software. U-No.

Pleasantly Relaxing

Apr 21st, 2019

If you want a calming, highly enjoyable adult cruise, this is it. The rooms and spaces have such an upscale feel, and the library is a beautiful room with views all around. If you're not a big drinker, you won't mind the long waits and feeling invisible at the Lido bar. One thing on this and my previous Holland America cruise is that these are without a doubt the most personal crew you will ever meet and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and valued.

Just got off the Nieuw Amsterdam, our 1st sailing with HAL. Loved the ship, the crew were first rate and the food was amazing. And, since they sail out of our home port of San Diego, will definitely consider sailing again on HAL.l

This is my second cruise with HAL. The ship was in great shape, the room was awesome, the staff was awesome, food was good but not great. The cruise was nice but after being on 4 of the other cruise lines I found there wasn’t much to do on the ship as far as extra curricular activities. I thought this ship was tuned to more of the older crowd, which isn’t a bad thing, just not a lot of things to do while at sea. I still enjoyed every minute of the cruise just saying if you are looking to have pool parties or late nights at the clubs this cruise line might not be for you.

Surprisingly Awesome Cruise

Apr 17th, 2019

Prior to cruise, had underestimated what great ports of call we were going to. But the cities as they are today are AWESOME & beautiful. And we felt safe the whole time ( mom & 2 teen kids). All people we met on land & cruise were wonderful, polite & accommodating. Virtually everything on ship was great & we were always entertained or enjoying relaxation. We were not prepared - for how surprisingly enjoyable this cruise would be. Highly recommend it!
