Alaska 2018
By John Hemingfield on 01 October 2018
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

Just returned from a 7 day Alaska cruise followed by two day trip on the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver to Banff. This was booked through Bolsover but organised by Holiday Directions. Everything ran like clockwork. Transfers spot on time and comfortable. Once with Rocky Mountaineer, it was a very slick operation. The trip to Alaska was fantastic mostly because the weather was very kind to us. Glorious sunshine throughout which is apparently unusual for Alaska....

Service Issues
By Tony Wilson on 21 September 2018
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

This was a very good cruise overall as it was to Alaska which is exceptional and has the best scenery in the world in our view and we have been to some fabulous places. The food was very good but my wife is lactose intolerant and the ship was advised in advance but you would not have thought so. It was a constant battle to get soya milk, there were no soya yoghurts and the...

Alaska cruise
By David Bentley on 04 June 2018
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

This was our 4th cruise. Alaska was always on the bucket list and the destination didn’t disappoint. First time on Nieuw Amsterdam. Beautiful ship and fabulous throughout. Plus points were comfort, room service, layout, entertainment and premium restaurants. Negatives were 6am wake ups with staff moving deck furniture( never choose deck 8 at rear of ship). Noisy,rushed,crowded service in main restaurant. Dining in main restaurant is not a relaxed enjoyable affair. There is a huge...

Cruise from Barcelona to Venice 20th April 2014
By MRS JOYCE SASSON on 12 May 2014
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

The flights were good. Transfers were good. The ship was lovely. The food was good and a large variety. The service was excellent by everyone. The entertainement was ex ellent. The only complaint we had was that the cabin was very small. More for one person that for two. Considering the amount we paid we should have had a better cabin, so that was very disappointing. We heard people on the ship had paid much...

East caribbean
By Colin on 03 March 2014
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

A very good holiday visiting small Caribbean centres with great beaches and interesting old towns. Great weather in February with 30C plus. Hard working crew and polite. This ship was subject to bad vibration on all decks in good weather conditions ( will someone please tell us before we book ). Final visit to ” Half moon cay” was great again, the best way to end a holiday.

Not bad…not good
By Ralph Payne on 03 August 2013
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

This is the second time we have cruised aboard this ship. I personally found the experience to be nothing out of the ordinary. I have the impression that the quality of the Holland America product has been lowered. First ship into port, anchored out and tendered to shore, only to watch a Thompson ship come in later that day to tie up alongside. At Kotor the ship anchored a long way from the jetty. Dirty...

Still a Princess fan
By Brent Wheywell on 08 April 2013
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

This was our first HL cruise and in the main it was satisfactory.However there were a number of minor niggles which you would not expect of a 5 star cruise line. eg – on our first night, two items on the cocktail list were unavailable , two choices of wine at dinner were also unavailable and the wine list we were given was out of date – correct prices were higher. Organisation of breakfast in...

Superb ship
By Sheila Kirkham on 12 March 2013
Holland America Line | MS Nieuw Amsterdam Reviews

The organisation throughout was faultless. The ship was of the highest quality in cleanliness, service, provisions, particularly in the pristinely laundered linen, and the food. The amusements were fairly comprehensively selected with the Adaagio and the Cantate being superb. The crew were always pleasant, helpful and smiley. We were upgraded to the 7th deck, but were given a cabin which had an extension on the roof, preventing the sun from reaching us, which was a...
