Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Review by Marycook
- Sail Date: January 2017
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
Because guests are older and hearing not as good as it was, many wear hearing aides, making the blaring music painful and sound is muffled when so loud.
A prime example was on the final sea day the Ocean Bar was full of people enjoying each other's company. Their voices filled the area with an inviting humm. At one time someone was playing background music. Then the band returned, many Ocean Bar guests left.
Sales staff in the shops are bored and follow you with offers. The Digital Workshop with Windows 10 was well handled and busy. Classical music well attended and performed, guest performers on stage good, production number loud and we left after about 5-10 minutes.
To top this not so great trip, we had to be shuttleted to the port parking garage. We were dropped as close as the shuttle driver could get us I guess. We were given two different directions on where to haul our luggage only to find out the elevator didn't work and we had to carry our bags up to our floor. Thanks parking services.
