With its glamorous design, courteously efficient service and superb entertainment and dining, Nieuw Amsterdam brings passengers the very best in time-honoured cruising traditions – but with a range of ultra-modern touches that really do set this fantastic cruise ship apart.
Reflecting the pizzazz and history of New York City (formerly called Nieuw Amsterdam of course) the ship further defines and expands the Holland America Line premium brand and offers modern refinements that will delight and surprise even the most seasoned cruise traveller.
The attention to style detail is wonderfully evident from the moment you step aboard and is highlighted most overtly by the stunning array of classical and contemporary painted, sculpted and mosaic artworks in a collection worth more than $3million.
Make sure to check out the awe-inspiring inverted New York skyline sculpture created by Italian husband and wife Gilbert Lebigre and Corinne Roger. Works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Estes are other collection highlights.
And this is rather cool, you can take a look before you sail via the innovative downloadable iPod virtual art tour - just one of the Nieuw Amsterdam’s ground-breaking concepts. These also include a cyber coffee-lounge powered by the New York Times, her Culinary Arts Centre presented by Food & Wine Magazine and the beautifully-designed pan-Asian Tamarind restaurant and Silk Den lounge surrounded by panoramic views overlooking the ocean expanse and the Lido pool.
With one crew member to approximately every two guests, you’ll love the attentive yet discreet service as you sample the Nieuw Amsterdam’s high quality activities, entertainment and fine dining.
Entertainment and Recreation
With such a wealth of onboard activities the Nieuw Amsterdam allows you to try something new every day.
Or not – if lounging and lazing is your thing you can enjoy it in style here. Why not try a comfortable poolside cabana? You can hire it by the day or for the whole cruise.
You could revatalise yourself with a vigorous workout in the huge and ultra modern fitness centre or take advantage of the treatments on offer at the gorgeous Greenhouse Spa.
Look after your mind, too, by getting involved in a hands-on cookery demonstration at the Culinary Arts Centre or attending an expert lecture, an arts seminar or one of the frequent wine-tasting sessions.
Younger guests have their own supervised fun and games to keep them amused all day with Club Hal providing a variety of games and parties and The Loft allowing teen travellers to find their own space and make new friends.
Extensive shore excursion opportunities let you explore and experience the cities, resorts and islands along the way, discovering their art, cultural, sights and shopping highlights.
With the emphasis on catering for all passengers’ tastes and moods, high quality entertainment brings the evenings alive.
But you choose the place, you dictate the pace.
You may want to chill with a drink and a slow dance, or enjoy some live music or gentle comedy at one of the Nieuw Amsterdam’s attractive and atmospheric bars and lounges.
If it’s a bit more glam and glitz you’re after you can sit back and revel in a Broadway quality musical extravaganza in the beautiful, state-of-the-art Showroom at Sea.
Catch a movie, try your luck in the casino or just sip a cocktail under the stars – it’s all there for you to enjoy as and when you want.
Wining & Dining
Master Chef Rudi Sodamin hand-picks his staff as carefully as his ingredients, ensuring the highest standards of culinary excellence throughout the Nieuw Amsterdam.
You may choose the intimacy of the luxurious Pinnacle Grill with its stunning menu and extensive and excellent wine list, enhanced by classy china, glassware and table linens.
Or perhaps dine with fellow guests at the magnificent Manhattan Dining Room where you can enjoy sumptuous five course creations either taking a pre-set seating and dining option or a more casual, open dining service.
Dining delights also include cooked to order specialities in the Lido Restaurant where attentive yet unobtrusive staff will serve you in air-conditioned comfort or al fresco on deck.
There’s a Chocolate Dessert Extravaganza for that naughty but nice snack, buffets at the Terrace Grill or authentic Italian fare at the Canaletto Restaurant.
And don’t forget those marvellous topside views and exceptionally exciting Pan Asian cuisine at the signature Tamarind.*
