Nieuw Amsterdam

Ship Rating:

As the fourth in the Nieuw Amsterdam line, the ms Nieuw Amsterdam continues the proud tradition of her name. With a design reflecting the glamour and history of New York City, she pairs new additions with old favorites to provide the ultimate cruising experience. The ship boasts 11 guest decks, featuring new additions such as an Explorer's Lounge Bar, a premium wine-tasting lounge, an elegant luxury jewelry boutique and a new atrium bar area. Not forgotten, however, are many of the much-loved Holland America features, including premium stateroom amenities; glass elevators at midship; a cyber-coffee house; the innovative Culinary Arts Center, where culinary experts provide cooking demonstrations and intimate classes in state-of-the-art kitchens; and a youth facility that includes the teens-only Loft. Other amenities include in-room fruit baskets and flowers, an expanded Greenhouse Spa and Salon with thermal suites and hydro-pool, the largest gymnasium ever built for Holland America Line, a new photographic and imaging center, and state-of-the-art navigation and safety systems.
