A taste of New York
Celebrating the glitz and glamour that is New York City, Nieuw Amsterdam expands Holland America's premium-brand reputation by introducing new ideas and concepts to the world of luxury cruising. Nieuw Amsterdam now features 11 guest decks and staterooms, highlighting all the Signature of Excellence luxury. There are also wonderful spa staterooms with additional spa amenities.
So much to choose from ...
For starters, there's the new Silk Den lounge, with it's panoramic pool and ocean views, and the new pan-Asian Tamarind restaurant. Stumble into a wine-tasters paradise at the Explorer's Lounge bar, a luxury jeweler if you plan on 'popping the question' at dinner, or the just-renovated show lounge and the new atrium bar area. There's even an imaging and photographic centre.
Nieuw Amsterdam is a cruise ship that likes to show-off, and rightly so. Among the more classic Holland America features include outside-view, glass elevators amid-ships, cyber-coffee house the Explorations Cafe (powered by The New York Times). There are culinary demonstrations and classes at the Culinary Arts Centre, presented by Food & Wine Magazine, or if you prefer dining and drinking to participation, the Pinnacle Grill and Pinnacle Bar will spur your appetite and slake your thirst, and if you want to bring the whole family, go Italian at Canaletto's Italian family-style restaurant.
Relax, get active, or socialise
From food to pure relaxation, Nieuw Amsterdam has a recently extended Greenhouse Spa and Salon, including a hydro-pool and thermal suites. For the body-conscious, there is a huge gymnasium - the largest in the Holland America Line - and for teens there is the teens-only Loft, perfect for making many new friends.

Holland America have a fleet of 14 modern classic ships and offer more than 500 sailings a year visiting all seven continents. Over the years, Holland America have been defined by a mission they are very much committed to: Through excellence, we create one-in-a-lifetime experiences, every time.
As well as being one of the most luxurious liners on the seas, Holland America Lines are also very proud of their environmental programme. Throughout the years, this has been an important aspect of their business and safeguarding their guests, crews, ships and the environment in which they live and operate is not only the right thing to do, but it is essential to the successful conduct of their business. Some of this work involves giving back to communities and organisations around the world from cleaning up local parks to walking 5kms onboard to raise money for charity.
With a fleet of 14 exclusive cruise liners, Holland America has the world covered in terms of destinations. Each of the ships, whilst being unique offer the same high standard of amenities and services throughout. You can revel in spacious cruise ship rooms, breathe in the expansive views and relax in easy elegance. Whilst all of the Holland America liners are modern vessels, they feature rich woods, beautiful floral arrangements and handsome furnishings that create an inviting atmosphere in which to relax and unwind.
Each ship sails with nearly 1 crew member to every 2 guests which means you can expect a high level of personalised service throughout your time onboard. With wraparound teak decks, panoramic views and an abundance of spacious private verandas, each of the Holland America fleet is decked in luxury. A cruise with Holland America is like taking a 5-star hotel with you out to sea. From the exclusive dining to the onboard facilities to the exclusive staterooms – everything about a Holland America cruise oozes class.

As you would expect from a luxury cruise line like Holland America, the onboard experience reflects the 5-star experience you get throughout. What makes Holland America a little different is the onboard activities they offer. Whilst they have all the typical amenities you would expect from a luxury cruise like a fantastic spa, evening entertainment and exquisite dining options, the onboard activities are what makes a Holland America cruise stand out.
The onboard Culinary Arts Centres offer up a variety of fun, interesting and engaging sessions that are pretty unique. From the guest chef schedule which includes some of the hottest chefs in the world to the signature cooking classes which let you get hands on there’s something for everyone. We also love the wine tasting and mixology classes which teach guests how to make cocktails as well as sampling some delicious wines. Another pretty unique activity onboard is the Digital Workshop powered by Windows where you can learn digital photography, video editing and web skills whilst cruising.
