About Holland America Line

Holland America Line stands for classic cruise experiences with superb food and excellent service. The standard may be compared with competitors such as Princess Cruises and Celebrity Cruises. Though becoming increasingly popular Holland America Line is still an insider tip in Europe. The main onboard language is English. We recommend travelers to have a fairly good command of the English language to make the cruises a pleasant experience.


The Ship

Nieuw Amsterdam was commissioned in 2010. With a length of 285 meters and a maximum capacity of 2,106 guests she provides a lot of space per traveler – a trademark on all of Holland America Line’s ships. A crew of 929 people takes care of all the guest’s needs.



All cabins are spacious and very comfortably furnished. The staterooms start at a size of 13 square-meters (inside cabin) and suites feature up to 122.4 square-meters. There is enough space for your suitcases in every cabin though.


Atmosphere on Board

The Nieuw Amsterdam gives the opportunity to enjoy your privacy and the feeling of spaciousness. The informal atmosphere on this cruise ship creates an unforgettable holiday experience. Nevertheless we suggest taking along evening dresses for the “formal nights”.


Food and Beverages

The superb cuisine is surely one of the highlights of every cruise with Holland America Line. Guests can spontaneously choose to dine à la carte in the main restaurant or in the buffet restaurant. For a surcharge the “Pinnacle Grill” or the Asian style “Tamarind” are additional options with culinary highlights.


Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

You can choose from a broad variety of onboard activities such as yoga, swimming, spa treatments, having a drink in the bar or sitting down somewhere just reading a book. In the evenings entertaining shows and live-music are performed. Based on so many options everyone can enjoy his individual favourite entertainment.


The Greenhouse Spa invites you into a heavenly beauty paradise. You can enjoy different treatments such as massages, manicure and pedicure. In contrast to this relaxing programme you are able to join some sport courses like yoga and pilates or using the gym machines.


Furthermore the Culinary Arts Centre offers cooking courses for people of every age.
