Which Verandah on Nieuw Amsterdam?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thinking about a Caribbean cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam this Spring.

 

Family of 3, including a 14 year old.

 

We would prefer mid-ship, lower and a nice balcony.

 

I've read about the possible view of the tops of the lifeboats, I don't think we'd care about that, but we would want a good balcony and a quiet cabin.

 

Suggestions? Thanks.

Welcome to Cruise Critic Rippo.

For three people with a teen I recommend a Signature Suite (extra bathroom space!) on deck 6 midship.  You can see the tops of the lifeboats when looking straight down, but it has not bothered me a bit. It's quiet with decks of cabins only above and below.  Verandas on deck 5 midship have the top of lifeboats right at floor level of the veranda so are in your view more.

 

I love the Nieuw Amsterdam!

.. and they have shallow balconies ... just about 4.5 ft.  OP, look through the pictures on  http://halfacts.com/signature-class/ to see what the balconies and views of the lifeboats are like.

 

On the N.A. we loved our deck 8 mid-ship cabin with a 7-ft deep balcony and an overhang from the Lido that gave us extra shade, but that doesn't fit your preference for lower.
