The Nieuw Amsterdam has all the features and amenities of other cruise ships we have been on. Our cabin at the rear of the ship was supposed to be slightly bigger than average but was the smallest we have had on any ship. The wardrobe area was particularly cramped, although storage was fine. The food in all restaurants was good, we particularly liked the salad bowls in the buffet. However only premium, paid for tea and coffee were ever offered in the main restaurant, unlike any other cruise we had been on. They also pushed the bottled water heavily before offering the free water. Entertainment was generally good, the performers were excellent but some of the shows could have been better. We enjoyed the wildlife spotting on deck and saw things we would not have noticed on our own, such as sea otters. The digital lessons in windows 10 were also excellent, even though we are fairly proficient in using computers we learnt something in every session we attended. There were not any craft sessions or choir which I have enjoyed in other cruises. Overall the Nieuw Amsterdam has all the basics but seems to lack some of the extra touches that make cruising special. The itinerary itself was excellent with plenty to see and do st each port, each a different experience . The scenery is stunning, especially the sea day around Glacier bay. I would recommend the cruise to see Alaska.
