I was on the Amsterdam in November and found it to be not up to HAL standards. If you had a stateroom in the middle of the ship you probably go zero sleep. It was noisy, rumbling and shakey.. The Crow's Nest could use an upgrade. Looking old and beat up. The staff was wonderful as usual. I love Holland America but I would not book another cruise on the Amsterdam.
I just completed my review on the Amsterdam. It usually takes about a week before they get loaded. If it isn't showing by this time next week I will re-do it.
kosi, just go back to the home page; click on ship reviews and look for passenger reviews or something like that: then you can go to HAL or maybe it is visa versa. Anyway you will get there, my review is, right now, the first under Amsterdam as it is the newest. Hope you enjoy it and can learn something after reading our experiences with the ship.
