Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam Alaska Cruise Questions

Jump to last reply

We are not seasoned cruisers, having only done two cruises before, and this is our first trip to Alaska. I have placed a reservation on this cruise for mid-June of 2016. I can't seem to find any specific reviews on this particular ship to Alaska. I wonder if it recently started cruising to there. I can find reviews of it going to a the Mediterranean, etc.

Our last cruise was Australia/New Zealand with Regent and I'm afraid we were spoiled by the all inclusive aspect and the amazing food. But I can't justify the cost for this trip. Has anyone cruised to Alaska on the Nieuw Amsterdam? How would you rate the experience? Also, how important is it to do the ship's tours, or do you recommend we book private tours at the ports? Are they good about getting you back to the ship on time?

Thanks for your help!
