Holland America Line's ms Nieuw Amsterdam is their newest ship and is sure to continue their long and distinguished history of luxurious mid-sized cruise ships. Being a Signature Class ship, this vessel is filled with Holland America's latest innovations, such as spa accommodations, specialty restaurants and private cabanas.

Those that enjoy going to spas should consider reserving one of ms Nieuw Amsterdam's exclusive spa suites or staterooms. Those staying in such accommodations benefit from special spa-themed amenities, such as yoga mats, an iPod® docking station, and a countertop water feature in-room. Also available for such guests are exclusive spa treatments from the nearby Greenhouse Spa and Salon.

There is a wonderful variety of entertainment venues and things to do aboard ms Nieuw Amsterdam. For instance, The Showroom at Sea, the ship's a three-story main show room, is where guests can enjoy a live performance on each night of the cruise. Possible shows may include Broadway-style production shows, comedians, magicians, musicians, singers, dancers and acrobats. Also on board ms Nieuw Amsterdam is a large casino, full-service spa, fitness center, beauty salon, swimming pools, whirlpools, duty-free shopping boutiques, as well as many bars and lounges (including Crow's Nest, an observation lounge that becomes a nightclub at night).

While on a ms Nieuw Amsterdam cruise you'll have a nice selection of dining venues to choose from. The two-level Manhattan Dining Room is the ship's main restaurant, with a multi-course menu that changes on each night of the cruise. Other venues are the Lido Restaurant (which has a large buffet, with many international choices) and Canaletto Restaurant, a casual Italian eatery. 24-hour room service is a convenient option available to all guests.

Following her next refurbishment, ms Nieuw Amsterdam will debut a number of Suite enhancements as part of a $300-million brand initiative. The main living area in each Suite will be refreshed with a new sofa, lounge chairs, carpet, headboard and more to bring a feeling of contemporary luxury to these accommodations. Electronic upgrades will feature new USB outlets added to the bed headboard, along with LED bedside lights, and fully interactive television system integrating movies on demand as well as daily programming. Suite bathrooms will also receive a designer makeover, featuring a new vanity area with new stone tops, modern faucets and under-mount sinks. Starting in January 2016, guests will also receive additional Suite amenities, which include superior bathrobes and slippers, binoculars for use during the voyage, an in-suite coffee and espresso machine and more!
