Nieuw Amsterdam LIVE Review- September 1-8, 2018

Recommended Posts

To clear the record, on this ship ALL of the non alcoholic drinks in the refrigerator ARE included with the Pinnacle Suite. We have not been charged for soft drinks or mixers, and our attendant replenishes them daily.

That must be a recent change.

We have stayed in many PH cabins on different ships and were always charged for the bottles of water.

Perhaps it changes depending upon ship? We also have the Elite drink package but I don’t think that matters in this case.

Last day. It’s been a fabulous cruise! Today we go on the behind the scenes tour, Mariner lunch, wine tasting and Pinnacle Grill for dinner. In between we must cheer our friend on who is in the black jack tournament. Our first cloudy with some rain day. 901fdde6b3bf102716eb53f73b569189.jpg

Have enjoyed your reports.

Glad you got to be the co-pilot -- really great views from there.

We have stayed in the Nieuw Amsterdam PH several times and nothing was free from the refrigerator.

Strange, I double checked my bill- no mini bar charges. We drank a ton of Diet Coke and mixers. All were free.

Behind the scenes tour took us to control room, bridge, kitchen, laundry and processing/receiving and storage areas. Amazing info and enthusiastic staff!

All the menus which are repeated fleet wide. Menus change as ship location changes- Alaska versus Caribbean cruises. Food and beverages are ordered months in advance depending upon type. Fresh Salmon and crab were bought in Alaska 6c43abe0cd4715921442c92999dc3d1f.jpg

Disembarked fast today. This was a fabulous cruise! The staff were all wonderful and food was great. We had no complaints other than terrible internet service. 7c3cfb006dfda038250f6842c381ed30.png
