ms Amsterdam

4.6/5 |
The Amsterdam blends the very latest in shipbuilding technology with the artistry, personalized touches, and superior service that has made Holland America Line one of the highest-rated cruise lines in the world. Dutch heritage and tradition is clearly displayed throughout the ship in original Art Deco pieces that once graced the Nieuw Amsterdam of 1938. For a contemporary touch, works of the noted maritime artist Stephen Card adorn public spaces.

Activities & Services

Every day aboard a Holland America cruise ship brings a wealth of cruise activities and indulgences, along with the freedom to partake in as many ? or as few ? as you please. It's an opportunity to try something new that surprises you, every day. Whether you choose to workout in the Fitness Center, pamper yourself with a massage at the spa, or listen to music while checking your email in the Explorations Caf?, there's a perfect onboard activity for everyone.

To ensure that the efforts of all crew members are recognized and rewarded, a daily Hotel Service Charge is automatically added to each guest?s shipboard account. The amount of the daily Hotel Service Charge* for suites is US$12.00 per guest, per day; and US$11.50 per guest, per day for non-suite staterooms. Guests are free to adjust this amount at the end of each segment and/or voyage, should the service received exceed or fail to meet guests' expectations.

A 15% Service Charge is automatically added to bar charges, dining room wine purchases, and for spa and salon services.

Please note: this charge is subject to change without notice.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required -

    Special dietary requests, such as vegetarian, diabetic or gluten-free meals, are easily accommodated with advance notice. Kosher meals and a Health Conscious Dining option are also available. To arrange special meals, please contact the Ship Services Department at 1-800-541-1576 at least 90 days prior to departure.

    Food Allergies

    For guests with food intolerances or allergies that are NOT life-threatening, please contact the Ship Services Department at (800)541-1576.

    For guests with life-threatening food allergies, guests are asked to provide detailed information to the Access & Compliance Department by completing a Special Requirements Information (SRI) Form. Guests should indicate on this form which foods may potentially cause a severe reaction. Guests with a variety of severe food allergies sail with Holland America Line regularly. The galley staff on board is accustomed to and experienced in dealing with these types of needs. The galley itself has many different areas of food preparation, which can help reduce the possibility of cross-contamination. It is important to note, however, that meals are prepared in mass quantities on board, thus there is always the possibility of some cross-contamination. As such, Holland America Line cannot guarantee that a guest will not come in contact with those items. Although the Access & Compliance Department will provide the ship with an advance notice of all food allergies detailed on an SRI submitted to them, it is recommended that guests also contact the Dining Room Manager upon boarding to review the details of these special dietary needs.

  • Internet Access -

    Guests can connect to the internet via satellite link 24 hours a day, satellite conditions permitting, either by accessing a 24/7 wireless connection "hotspot" or by utilizing the resources of the Explorations Caf? on board.

    Wireless Internet Service
    Each Holland America Line vessel offers wireless internet service in most public lounges throughout the ship. Guests may use their laptop computer or other wireless internet-enabled device to connect to the wireless internet service on board. IPhone and Android phone users will enjoy easy-to-navigate mobile friendly login. Internet Plans vary in price to accommodate individual needs and are interchangeable between the private computer terminals available 24-hours a day in the Explorations Caf? and your wireless device.

    Explorations Caf? or Internet Caf? Internet Service
    The Explorations Caf?, powered by The New York Times offers a comfortable, coffee house environment where you can access the internet via the onboard computers or via your own wireless internet device, such as a laptop computer, iPad or iPhone.

    Explorations Caf? or Internet Caf? pricing is subject to change without prior notice. Please inquire on board for current prices.

    • 250 minutes for $100.00, $0.40 per minute
    • 100 minutes for $55.00, $0.55 per minute

    Time Plan minutes can be used anytime throughout the cruise.

  • Medical Emergencies -

    If passengers become ill or injured during the voyage and the diagnostic and/or care needs exceed the capabilities of the infirmary, passengers will be transferred to medical facilities ashore.

    Please note: Medicare and many health insurance plans DO NOT cover the cost of medical care at sea, in foreign countries, or for air evacuation. Guests are encouraged to obtain travel medical insurance prior to travel in order to be reimbursed for services rendered.

  • Pregnancy Policy -

    Women cannot have begun their 24th week of pregnancy at any time before or during the cruise.

    If you are pregnant, a physician?s letter must be provided stating the expected due date, medical fitness to travel, and the pregnancy is not high risk. Please also include your name, booking number, ship and sailing date.

    Please fax letters to Holland America's Access & Compliance Department at 800-577-1731. Or they can be mailed to:

    Holland America Line
    Attention: Access & Compliance Department, 2nd floor
    300 Elliott Avenue West
    Seattle, WA 98119

    Guests are urged to have their letter mailed or faxed in as soon as possible after making a reservation.

  • Smoking Policy -

    For the comfort of all guests, smoking is prohibited in all staterooms, showrooms, and most other indoor areas. While smoking is not permitted in staterooms, guests are allowed to smoke on stateroom verandahs. Smoking is also permitted on certain other designated, outside decks. The designated smoking areas for all ships are as follows unless otherwise noted.

    • Stateroom verandahs
    • Casino (Active players only)
    • Seaview Bar
    • Outside Decks
    • Sports Deck

    Cigar and pipe smoking is NOT allowed anywhere inside the ship; it is only permitted on the outside decks where smoking is allowed and on stateroom verandahs.

    Electronic cigarettes are permitted in staterooms but not in other public areas of the ship other than on outside decks designated as smoking areas.

    Any guest caught smoking inside their stateroom will be considered in violation of Holland America's smoking policy, and will be charged a US$250 cleaning fee per day of violation.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs -

    Holland America Line is committed to providing safe, easy, and accessible accommodations for all persons with disabilities, to the extent that is feasible. However, some needs require adequate time to prepare for a guest's arrival. It is recommended that guests make every effort to contact the Access & Compliance Department and submit a Special Requirements Information (SRI) Form well in advance of the departure of their cruise and/or cruisetour. It is recommended that an SRI form be submitted immediately upon booking, or a minimum of 45 days prior to departure.

    Guests who are unable to care for their basic needs (e.g. dressing, eating, and attending safety drills) MUST have a capable traveling companion. The medical staff on board is not available for daily care unless an individual is hospitalized in the ship's Medical Center. In limited situations (either on board or ashore), Holland America may find it necessary to ask the individual to make alternative travel arrangements, such as if an individual with a disability is unable to satisfy certain specified safety and other criteria, even when provided with appropriate auxiliary aids and services.

    Wheelchair-Accessible Staterooms

    Holland America Line vessels have specially designed staterooms for guests who use wheelchairs. If you have not booked a wheelchair accessible staterooms, but instead will be using a standard stateroom, it is important to know about some limitations that adversely impact maneuverability, especially ingress and egress into bathrooms. For example, bathroom dimensions, doorsills, and the height of bathtubs in standard staterooms are often difficult to negotiate for guests who have limited mobility. Additionally, standard stateroom doors and hallways may be too narrow for a wheelchair or scooter* to maneuver into and out of the stateroom.

    *Note: For safety reasons, these mobility devices must be stored and charged in the guests' staterooms.

    Wheelchair Accessible Staterooms offer features such as wider entry doors, roll-in showers with grab bars and benches/seats, and hand-held shower nozzles, as well as lowered closet and towel rods.

    • Wheelchair accessible stateroom entry doors measure 32 inches wide.
    • Wheelchair accessible bathroom doors measure 32 inches wide.

    Accessible stateroom locations are noted on the Deck Plans for each ship.

    Ship Transfer Options

    For individuals with limited mobility, the use of a wheelchair will be the primary mobility assistance aid for getting on and off the ship. Certain ship transfer operations (i.e. during tendering and at the gangways) may not be fully accessible to wheelchairs or scooters. When a ship is unable to dock, guests are taken ashore on smaller boats called tenders. Some guests with limited mobility may find it difficult to embark or disembark the ship at certain times while tendering or while docked due to steep gangways and steps, particularly during low or high tide. Also, please note that scooters and wheelchairs which are more than 100 lbs. (without the battery) are not allowed to be transferred from the ship to tender and/or from tender to shore.

    Most Holland America Line vessels have been retrofitted with a tender-lift system that enables guests to roll directly on and off tenders while remaining in their wheelchairs. However, please be advised that adverse weather conditions such as wind, swells, or extreme tide levels may prohibit the use of the ship's tender lift equipment. Additionally, some port facilities may not be able to accommodate the lift equipment. If you require the use of this equipment, please speak with the Guest Relations Manager upon embarkation for further details or to coordinate specific arrangements.

    Situations may occur in which guests with limited mobility may not be able to go ashore at the time they desire or are unable to go ashore at all in certain ports. For the safety of all concerned, the Captain shall make the final determination regarding whether or not it is advisable to provide assistance to guests with mobility impairments, or to carry their mobility assistance device (wheelchair, scooter, walker, etc.), taking into account all appropriate matters including, but not limited to, weather conditions, ship's location, weight of the guest or their mobility device, etc.

    Personal Mobility Equipment

    For the safety of all guests and crew, and to enhance accessibility, Holland America Line strongly recommends that all personal electric mobility equipment meet the following criteria:

    • Width: 23" maximum (in order to be accommodated in a standard stateroom), unless collapsible to a width of 23" or less
    • Weight: 100 lbs. maximum (without battery)
    • Batteries: Must be gel or dry cell or AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) only

    Holland America Line recognizes that for some people, a larger scooter may be essential. If you believe you need a larger scooter, please contact the Access & Compliance Department to discuss your requirements.

    For the safety of all guests and crew, scooters and other mobility equipment need to be securely stored and charged in the guest's stateroom, not in hallways or elevator lobbies. Scooters left in hallways and elevator lobbies could restrict people needing to travel through these areas in an emergency, particularly other guests using mobility aids, since they would have no way of getting by a scooter left in a hallway.

    Holland America Line is no longer able to provide complimentary wheelchair assistance for any purpose other than embarkation, disembarkation, and emergency situations. Holland America Line wheelchairs are not available for shore excursions or for use on board. If you will require regular use of a wheelchair, it is recommended that you bring your own wheelchair with you. You may also make advance rental arrangements prior to your sailing and have a wheelchair delivered directly to the ship for use on board and in ports of call.

    Special Needs at Sea and CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist are the vendors that Holland America Line has approved for delivery of mobility devices. Please contact these vendors directly for pricing and availability.

    Website: www.cruiseshipassist.com

    Please be advised that all pre-arranged mobility equipment rentals must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, you assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by you or on your behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between you and the service provider. We recommend contacting one of these companies to confirm your arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests.

    Shoreside Wheelchair Assistance

    Because facilities in ports around the world vary significantly, wheelchair accommodations may not be available for some land tours and/or shore excursions. Furthermore, many transportation vehicles around the world do not have wheelchair lifts. Thus, it may be necessary for Holland America Line to make alternate transportation arrangements such as a sedan vehicle. This requires that a guest who uses a wheelchair be able to transfer from his/her wheelchair to the front or back seat of a sedan. Due to the limited number of lift-equipped vehicles in foreign locations, guests may incur additional costs for transportation related to airport transfers, shore excursions, and tour/hotel packages. Please note, lift equipped transportation within the United States may be arranged without additional costs. For information on alternative transportation arrangements and associated costs please contact the Access & Compliance Department . Please advise Holland America Line as far in advance as possible of any special needs for transfers. This will help to ensure availability of the appropriate vehicle(s) and for Holland America Line to provide an estimate of additional associated costs.

    Guests should be aware that certain third party shore excursion facilities may not be fully accessible to guests with disabilities. Although Holland America Line endeavors to make sure these companies comply with legal requirements, they cannot guarantee that all are able to provide facilities that are accessible to individuals with disabilities. For detailed information on accessibility of shore excursions, it is strongly recommend that guests contact the Shore Excursions Department prior to embarkation at 1-888-425-9376 (or locally at 206-626-7320) or visit the Shore Excursions Office on board.

    Wheelchair assistance that is requested for airports or train stations must be done directly through the airline or rail station. Holland America Line is not able to arrange for wheelchair assistance at airports or train stations.

    Options For Deaf or Hard of Hearing Guests

    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are deaf or hard of hearing, Holland America Line has made the following items available:

    • Stateroom kits that include a visual and tactile alert for someone knocking at the door, the phone ringing, or an alarm.
    • Stateroom televisions capable of showing closed captioning (some satellite feeds do not transmit with captioning, so this feature is available only when the signal the ship receives has captioning).
    • Telephones with amplified sound for staterooms.
    • Assistive Listening Systems with portable receivers in the show lounges to assist guests who are hard of hearing to hear the shows.
    • Written safety information and a copy of the lifeboat drill safety speech.

    Options For Guests Who Are Blind Or Have Low Vision

    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are blind or have low vision, Holland America Line has made the following items available:

    • Window-Eyes? computer software in the Explorations Caf? that allows guests to navigate the web by listening to the text.
    • Downloadable daily activities, news, and menus for guests with laptops with screen reader programs. These items may also be downloaded to the Window-Eyes? enabled computer in the Explorations Caf?.
    • With 45 days notice, large print or Braille menus describing the inspired cuisine offered across a myriad of venues, from the elegant Dining Room to the casual Lido Restaurant.
    • A familiarization tour of the vessel upon arrival.

    Service Animals

    Holland America Line only permits service animals on board, defined as those animals that are individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Guests are not permitted to bring pets, therapy/companion animals, and other animals that do not meet the definition of service animals. If you have any questions about whether the animal you wish to bring on board is, in fact, a service animal, you may contact the Access & Compliance Department.

    Your itinerary may include ports of call that have very specific and strict requirements that need to be met prior to your service animal being allowed off of the ship. Please be sure you understand the requirements for a service animal to disembark in each port of call. The best places to obtain specific information on required documentation and immunizations for your service animal are the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website, local customs offices in the specific ports, and from your service animal's veterinarian. All documentation and immunization requirements are established by government authorities and not by Holland America Line. Should you need assistance in locating this information, please contact the Access & Compliance Department.

    To board the ship, your service animal must have current vaccinations. Records confirming the vaccination status should be provided to the Access & Compliance Department prior to your departure. It is also recommended that you carry the immunization records with you in case they are required at any port of call. If you do not have the proper documentation and proof of vaccinations for your service animal required at a port of call, or if there are local quarantine requirements, your service animal will be denied the right to leave the ship. If your service animal is denied the right to leave the ship in a specific port of call, the staff and crew will work with you to determine what actions may be possible to allow you to visit the port without your service animal. Please note that in your absence, you will need to provide for the care and supervision of your service animal. Except in those circumstances where your service animal has been denied disembarkation, you may not leave your service animal unattended on the vessel or in your stateroom at any time.

    Oxygen Deliveries On Board

    Guests requiring continuous or intermittent oxygen for chronic conditions must make their own arrangements prior to travel. Holland America Line ships are not equipped to provide guests with these services other than on an emergency basis in the Ship's Medical Center. For security and safety reasons, Holland America has selected CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist and Special Needs at Sea as the only outside vendors permitted to deliver oxygen supplies to Holland America ships.

    Special Needs at Sea

    Website: www.cruiseshipassist.com

    Note: Oxygen and/or oxygen equipment deliveries will not be accepted from any other companies.

    Please be advised that all oxygen and oxygen equipment rental arrangements must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, you assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by you or on your behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between you and the service provider. We recommend contacting one of these companies to confirm your arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests.

    Guests are also welcome to bring their own oxygen and/or oxygen equipment from home. Please note that the ship's staff and crew are not permitted to handle oxygen and/or oxygen equipment during the embarkation and disembarkation process. Thus, you must be able to handle your supplies if you bring your own. Please contact the Access & Compliance Department prior to sailing if you will require oxygen while on your cruise.

    Please Note: In accordance with FAA regulations, airlines have restrictions concerning traveling with oxygen and oxygen containers. It is the traveler?s responsibility to be familiar with and comply with the regulations of the airline they are traveling on.

Ship Staterooms

Enjoy refined amenities, such as fragrant Elemis Aromapure bath products, flat-panel TVs, finely woven cotton linens and Holland America's signature Mariner's DreamTM bed, which grace every elegant stateroom. Most of the spacious rooms aboard are ocean-facing, allowing you to enjoy expansive views as you sail to each new destination. Many have private, teak-lined verandahs, perfect for sunbathing or dining al fresco.

Holland America World Cruise 2015

| Ft. Lauderdale - Sydney
This was one of HAL's "Grand Voyages" and it was indeed grand. The food was delicious, and the staff from the Captain on down to the room steward and assistant waiter were wonderful. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and helpful and made it a real pleasure to be onboard. In addition there were many special events, such as wonderful decorations in the dining room for themed dinners, sailaway parties with free drinks and/or wine, special lunches, etc. Entertainment was good, with many different entertainers brought in along the way. In addition to their regular show they would often do an additional "spotlight" show the next night early or even a matinee on some sea days. Speaking of sea days, of which we had many, there were always many different activities to keep everyone busy with a wide variety of choices. And of course there was always HAL's wonderful walk-around promenade deck where you could relax in a deck chair and watch the sea go by. Especially nice on sea days were the different lecturers on board. We had four different ones while I was on board, and all were very good and interesting. The Amsterdam is a lovely ship and just right for this cruise. She handles the seas well and is a perfect size. There was always plenty of room for everything and it never felt crowded. Overall it was a wonderful cruise and I hated when I had to disembark in Sydney.

Last leg of 2014 World Cruise

| South Africa
The Amsterdam is very well appointed and the library and jigsaw puzzle rooms are well used. Cabins, dining venues, shows and entertainment are all top notch.

World Voyage MS Amsterdam

| World Voyage. South Pacific, Australis, Indonesia, Asia, Europe, Middle East
Wonderful trip, good weather, fascinating ports can't really complain about anything exceptthe disembarkation at Port Everglades which was chaotic due to confusing instructions by HAL land staff and lack of porters

Two week Alaska.

| Alaska
Wonderful, relaxing two weeks in beautiful Alaska. Would highly recommend this cruise to anyone. This was my sixth time and booked again for next year. You wont be disappointed.

Wonderful Midsize Ship

| South East Asia
If you want a near perfect cruise this is the ship. With her itinerary, onboard activities, wonderful crew, staff and officers, not to mention the outstanding cuisine, the Amsterdam is top of the line.

| World cruise
Passengers return just as if it were their FL or AZ condo and it is the CREW and itinerary which pull them "home" to the Amsterdam. The ship is not the newest at sea (19+ years old) but it serves well for the journey. There are quiet spaces and there is plenty of entertainment (2 bands and a piano/string duo) and daily activities. There are several cultural programs with local representatives brought on board prior to a destination for an in-depth analysis of that country. Tahiti: music (learning Ukelele and Tahitian dance), history, language, foods and culture. You can be as active or as quiet as you want with a full library and digital host to assist with internet issues. There is now ONE price to pay for the entire voyage for internet use and it seemed to work well (three levels - from $600-700-800 depending on if you want to stream/Skype or just email). This should encourage younger passengers to join as they can work from the ship.

Alaskin Cruise

| Alaska
This was our first cruise, and it will not be our last. We are so appreciative of the time we spent on and off the ship along with all the opportunities given to us along the way. Kudos to Holland America Line.

As good if not better than last time

| Alaska
It was a great cruise, and the staff went of of their way to please. Saw a few different things this trip, and that made it even better. The entertainment was top notch. When the first Interdenomination church service was standing room only in the Hudson Room, people even walked away as there was little room left, the Scheduling Director gave us the Queen's Lounge for the following Sunday. We really appreciated that.

Alaska 14 day

The entertainment could have been a little better on the ship, the rest of the journey was great.

World Cruise Segment One - Ft Lauderdale- Auckland

| Grand World Voyage
From the moment of check in at Ft Lauderdale pier, it was like a "High School reunion." So many familiar faces of both passengers and crew from last year. Made you feel WELCOME immediately. That feeling of "WELCOME HOME" prevailed throughout the voyage.
The Captain Jonathan Mercer and his wife Karen, were a major factor in everyone LOVING the voyage. He was always available and speaking and socializing with the guests. Dining room and service were outstanding and every special request (in reason of course) was honored if possible.
 

7-night Alaska cruise from Vancouver

| Alaska
Sailing to Alaska is on the bucket list of many people, and a 7-night round-trip cruise from Vancouver works neatly for many schedules. Holland America provides transfers between Seattle airport and Canada Place in Vancouver, which is helpful for US domestic flights. The Holland America MS Amsterdam is not a large ship, which is very nice, and it never felt crowded at all, even for peak viewing moments, such as seeing Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord. There were also some prime viewing areas where guests could sit and be more comfortable than if they were standing on deck (the Crow's Nest and the area by the pool, which is enclosed). Having a retractable roof over the pool is a great thing for the Alaska itinerary, so families can make use of the pool and hot tubs in comfort. One of the food highlights of the sailing was the salmon BBQ buffet, held at the pool deck during the Tracy Arm cruising day. Staterooms are very reasonable-sized, with extremely comfortable beds, and plenty of storage space. Our room steward was incredibly efficient, and our room was always tidy. I especially liked the very large library area, which blended into an area for the internet cafe, next to a dedicated card room. I thought it was a great idea to have plenty of board games on the ship, and these games could be checked out by guests. There was also an impressive DVD list, which could be ordered in the guest's stateroom, and delivered; extremely convenient! Staff onboard was very pleasant and willing to assist. I enjoyed the 'club' venues with their musicians more than the stage shows. The room service menu is extensive, and here's the best hint of the cruise: Order the room-service chocolate cake! You can't get it in the dining rooms, and it's the best dessert onboard. The dining room service and selection was good, and I found the dining server's recommendations to always be the best choice for dinner. The breakfast buffet has a good selection, but the menu did not change any mornings (a little variety would have been nice but this is not a deal breakerthere's no variety in my own pantry every morning!)

Segment 3 of World Cruise (Hong Kong to Cape Town)

| Segment 3 of 2014 World Cruise Hong Kong to Cape Town
Segment 3 covered the Far East, Indian Ocean ports and South Africa. Boarding in Hong Kong was painless and efficiently run. Embarkation and disembarkation activities are run like a well-oiled machine with the only hiccups a result of the delays caused by local authorities. Activities during days at sea are plentiful and varied. The lecture topics were interesting and relevant to the itinerary and well attended by passengers. The lecturers were professional and knowledgeable. The Microsoft laboratory and workshops in particular were very popular. In general, days in port provided sufficient time to explore the area and the ship’s excursions were very popular. The two premium restaurants on board had lovely menus and exceptional food and service. The food in the main dining room was good, but not great. And the breakfast/lunch buffets on Lido deck were well managed (there were never lines and provided lots of variety). The library was well stacked and the librarians extremely helpful to passengers who were experiencing internet problems (computers were located in the library). The service staff generally was very helpful and accommodating, particularly the Lido staff who were very solicitous of the elderly and disabled. There were two special activities for the clients in our group during this segment (a welcome cocktail party and an exclusive tour of the kitchen), both of which were well attended and enjoyable. I interacted regularly with several of the other passengers at breakfast and lunch and many of the excursions. All were very experienced cruisers and very aware and appreciative of the benefits available. 

Mixed Bag

| Alaska
Very disappointing food. Pinnacle Grill steaks were tough. Production shows were disappointing. Singers were very average, content was not exciting. No Broadway songs or shows.

Alaska cruise

| Alaska & Canada
We enjoyed our cruise very much. Our trip was changed due to weather, we were disappointed to miss Sitka, but understand the reason. The Crows Nest club was nice and we spent time there most days. The bar staff were great and very friendly. The entertainment was very good, but for the dance club, I felt there should be a band there most nights. The one time we were there and the band was playing, it was a lot of fun. The other nights, it was just like setting in one of the low key bar areas, not too much fun.

Maury's Review

| Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Thiland, Sri Lanka, UAE
In this modern era there is no excuse for having internet access as bad as was on that ship. I think it is a rip-off and will consider other cruise lines because of this. Not only that but there were only two wine selections that I could drink. Two!

Around the World on the MS Amsterdam

| World Cruise
Upon embarkation I could tell this was going to be a sailing like no other. With friendly faces, smiles, cool towels and a beverage waiting as we boarded the ship, the service we would encounter as the days went on would only elevate. Checking in was a breeze with the front desk and the women behind customer service helped me nearly every day on this sailing with one thing or another. From DVD rentals, to delivering mail to fellow guests, to event invitations. Our home away from home would be our stateroom, I was blown away by its size, large spacious not cramped, lots of storage, closets and drawers. Enough room to store luggage and other items so that the walkways never felt cluttered. The bathroom was full size, well equipped and large enough for 2 people to share. We were thrilled with our ocean view window and loved being able to watch us port in the mornings. The stateroom stewards were above and beyond any similar service I have ever had. They were available 24/7 and became accustom to our schedule she that they could sneak in and out without having to bother us, or make sure we had ice when we liked it, new towels, etc. The dining room was a place for meeting and socializing. The stewards quickly remember your name, likes and dislikes and have the table set with your preferred items in a flash. How they remember everything is a mystery but they are wonderful at what they do. We had many nightly conversations with them about their homes, families and what parts of the world they have traveled. It makes you feel that they are traveling with you, not just serving you. The kitchen staff put out wonderful displays of food sculptures, ice carvings, buffet decorations and other delicacies throughout the sailing. The food was good, and there was little to no repetition, something new to try every day. Activities on the ship were round the clock, with group crafts, book clubs, bridge, board games, puzzles, language lessons, dance lessons, aerobics, computer courses and many many more opportunities to learn something new or gather with like minded people. The staff did a great job of keeping people entertained and engaged so that no one was bored or left out. The nightly entertainment around the ship was very nice. Different musical acts in the various lounges and bars kept things upbeat and allowed for dancing or socializing with a cocktail after dinner. The Main theater entertainment lacked in exciting acts. We skipped this venue throughout the sailing with the exception for about 4 performances. In final thoughts the sailing would not have such a great success without Captain Jonathan Mercer. His daily engagements with the guests over directional information, idioms, or geographical historical information was much loved by everyone. His staff adored him and you could tell he was true and gracious leader.

2017 World Cruise on board the M/S Amsterdam

| World Cruise
A World Cruise with HAL should be on everyone's bucket list. The ship is nice and heavy and rode the waves beautiful! It was so smooth that it didn't even place a ripple in my wine glass. :) Of course the staff/crew are one of the best on the high seas. You are on the ship so long that we were referred to as "residents" and that is what we felt like as well as fellow family members. The itinerary was a very interesting one in that it hit almost all the continents...and each port of call was more interesting than the last. Was it nice to get home you ask? Yes, but after experiencing the World Cruise with HAL we're ready to go again in a heart beat!

HAL 2020 World Cruise

| World cruise
Ship is due for dry dock in May 2020 but this may not happen due to the Co-Vid 19 and not getting workers from Eastern Europe. The people on the voyage are there not as much for the physical aspects of the ship as they are for the destinations, activities on board and seeing their friends and crew year after year.

GRAND VOYAGE

| WORLD ITINERARY
DESPITE THE CONS WE ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF THE VOYAGE

African ports cut in half without notice

| Cape Town, Namibia, St Helena, Ascention Island, Cape Verde islands, Caribbean
2 years of savings and research bought a hughly anticipated 27 day unique African cruise out of Cape Town, South Africa. 4 days into the cruise, it morphed into 2 Cape Verde islands, 2 Atlantic islands and 4 Caribbean islands. We had already visited Cape Town and Namibia, 2 historically Dutch ports of call in African nations. The captain announced that he dropped 2 of the 4 African ports of call (Banjul, Gambia and Dakar, Senegal) because some guests had voiced to him their fear of ebola in West African neighboring countries. So that was that. A non-descript Cape Verde island was substituted and St. Lucia. The captain did not attempt to collect information from the other less influential guests and no fearful guest would have been obligated to go ashore. He did not disclose any statistical or clinical information about ebola that would have given his decision a factual basis about ebola as statistically compared to Somali pirates, terrorists, slip and falls, rogue waves, pilot error, passengers lost overboard and cruiseship diseases.

World Cruise Segment - Hong Kong to Dubai

| Hong Kong to Dubai
This was a 26 day cruise visiting interesting ports in Asia. The time went very fast. There was a lecturer on board that provided excellent information on each port in a very entertaining manner. They also had lecturers discussing the history of the area and ancient civilizations. The lectures made the shore excursions much more meaning full and interesting. The crew were wonderful - very gracious and helpful. Many of the passengers had been on world cruises before and therefore provided interesting bits of advice and shared experiences. The ship was not full and people were embarking and disembarking in many of the ports. There was never a crowd at meals or on excursions.

Exceeded Expectations

| Alaska
We had a wonderful cruise to Alaska on the Amsterdam. We loved our Lanai room. All the staff was wonderful and helpful. The food was delicious. In the dining room, they brought me sorbet for dessert so I know they had it on board. Just couldn't get it on the Lido deck. Most of the excursions were fine, even if the weather was rainy a couple of times. Our favorite excursion was on Kodiak Island: the bus tour through town, visiting the Russian Orthodox chapel and the church, the Russian Tea featuring authentic Russian food and an unexpected concert from the island's balalaika players. It was wonderful. From there we went to a craft market featuring only local artists and finally a trip out into the wilderness to look for bears. (only saw fishermen, not bears) Would highly recommend this excursion for a fun and informative time. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze and very much appreciated. The only port we really didn't like very much was Homer. It was very expensive to ride a bus into town and not much to do when you got there. The bus stops were limited and mostly inconvenient. We should have booked an excusion there.

The ms Amsterdam is the third ship to bear the name of the Dutch capital in Holland America Line's over 135-year history. Built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, the ms Amsterdam blends the very latest in shipbuilding technology with the artistry, personalized touches and superior service that has made Holland America Line one of the highest-rated cruise lines in the world.
