Nieuw Amsterdam Review
About This Ship
Pros and Cons
Pros: spa staterooms and suites can be completely no-smoking; with sea views and intimate seating alcoves, the Silk Den Lounge is one of the prettiest in the fleet; guests love culinary presentations in the state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen.
Cons: shelves are okay, but drawer space is inadequate in standard accommodations; some spa staterooms offer unusable Juliet balconies; teens are somewhat slighted here compared to other Holland America ships.
