Holland America Line’s Nieuw Amsterdam, the fourth ship to be given this illustrious name, proudly carries on a tradition that goes back more than 100 years. This ship divides its time between the Caribbean in cool months and Alaskan or Mediterranean waters in warmer ones.

What We Love

Pinnacle Grill & Tamarind: The steakhouse and Pan-Asian specialty restaurants onboard are so good, you may be tempted to return.

Explorations Café: This trademark space has happily morphed into a place to nibble on coffee shop snacks, log onto the Internet, and sit in a cozy space with a good library book.

Best Known For

Wraparound Promenade: This long-time line tradition lives on. For sailings with multiple days at sea, it’s lovely to be able to take long walks around the top deck, or relax in a lounge chair with a good book.

Public Room Settings: The interior décor is attractive, and the New York theme is executed with historic paintings, murals, photographs, and artifacts.

Who It's Best For

The Demographic Changes With the Location: While the line caters to an older clientele, multigenerational families are drawn to the Caribbean sailings, if not Alaska or the more distant Mediterranean Sea.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

There Are No Launderettes: Be prepared to hand-wash a few items in your cabin, or pay the charges to send it out.
