Incredible back to back cruise

Jun 28th, 2020

Absolutely incredible. We did a back to back and wouldn't change anything. The service and food was a very high standard. Our cabin was wonderful. Great amenities. The ship was stunning with fresh flowers all around. Entertainment was great and just what we like. I found things to do in the day and the evening in BB's was great. Incredible food. We went a few times to the Asian restaurant because it was so good. Even the dive in burger place was good, I still miss the dive in sauce and fries! Fresh pizza to take away so you can have a movie and pizza night in your cabin after a long day in port. The spa was worth every penny and we used it every day. A lovely afternoon nap on the heated loungers after a dip in the thermal pool refreshed us ready for the evening. HAL is a hard one to beat!

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise

Mar 15th, 2020

We actually went on a two-week cruise. This was the first part of a 14-day cruise. Our second week included Key West (loved this port), Turks & Caicos (beach was great and snorkeling excursion was cancelled but snorkeled off beach), Amber Cove beach resort was awesome and relaxing. We really enjoyed cruising with Holland American. The Nieuw Amsterdam was a great ship, the ports were great and provided a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Tremendous Cruise and Weather

Feb 28th, 2020

Beautiful weather, nice ship and attentive crew. Food was excellent esp. in Tamarind, but drinks are way too pricey. Lincoln center stage was an unexpected pleasure.

Don't be fooled..No Pickleball!

Feb 25th, 2020

We booked this cruise because they listed pickleball as an activity. Not true. No nets for pickleball, equipment broken.

Very Nice Time

Feb 18th, 2020

Enjoyed the cruise and understood going into it that the clientele may have been much older. Activities were geared towards older crowd. Would like to see more variety for the other 25% to enjoy.
