Review of ms Amsterdam

Launched in 2000, ms Amsterdam is the 4th and last Rotterdam (R-class) ship of Holland America, together with sister ship ms Rotterdam, and also ms Zaandam and ms Volendam.

History - construction & ownership

Holland America Line (HAL) is a Seattle-based American owned cruise line, which has been owned by Carnival Corp. & plc since 1989. From 1873 to 1989, HAL was a Dutch shipping line, a cargo line, a passenger line, and a cruise line operating mainly between the Netherlands and North America. Holland America Line was instrumental in the transport of hundreds of thousands of immigrants to North America. Founded in 1873 as the Dutch-American Steamship Company (Nederlandsche-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij), it was headquartered in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and provided service to North, South and Latin America. The first ship of the company was the original Rotterdam. On October 15, 1872 the vessel sailed its 15-day maiden voyage to New York City from the Netherlands. Other services were started to new world ports of call. In 1989 Holland America ceased operating as a Dutch line, as it was bought by Carnival Corporation for 1.2 bill guilders (530 mill euros).

Holland America MS Amsterdam cruise ship

The 62,735-ton, 1,380-passenger cruise ship ms Amsterdam has a certain regal note, together with newer conveniences. Holland America travelers still have the opportunity for a set-seating dining, though open-seating is also accessible. The cruise liner supports the tradition to serve mugs of warm Dutch pea soup on deck to bundled-up, glacier-gazing cruisers. And the decor in lots of the public areas is anything but understated. An ornate clock in the 3-level atrium is as really a towering piece of art as it is a way to get the running time all over the world - one of the first amenities cruisers see on the vessel and a reminder that Holland America has not forgotten its roots. Size-wise, Amsterdam is solidly in the middle of the Holland America fleet, smaller than the line's Vista and Signature classes and carrying 700 passengers fewer than Eurodam, which is the largest in the lineup. Even on a full voyage, the cruise liner rarely feels crowded, except for the lunch rush at the casual Lido Restaurant on sea days and the irregular, fast-moving line in the La Fontaine basic dining room. The Sea View swimming pool, aft of the Lido Deck, is a quiet retreat that feels like a private oasis.

Cruise itinerary program

MS Amsterdam itinerary program is based on Alaska cruises from Vancouver BC and Anchorage/Seward AK during the summer months. The ship also sails out of Fort Lauderdale FL on a World Voyage.

Cabins

Most ms Amsterdam staterooms are 140-320-sq.foot oceanview rooms (385). 25% of ship's accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 691 staterooms in 26 categories. 20 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard ms Amsterdam are the Pinnacle Suites (1180 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

La Fontaine is ship's 2-level main restaurant venue, which serves open-seating breakfast and lunch, as well as a blend of flexible and set-seating restaurant-style meals at dinner. Breakfast hours in the MDR vary but start as early as 7:00 a.m. on port days and 8:00 a.m. on sea days, wrapping up by 9:30 a.m. Breakfast fare includes breads, cereals, French toast, blueberry pancakes, corned beef hash, egg dishes and yogurt parfaits. Portions are on the smaller side, so better opt for a second pastry. Lunch in the MDR is typically limited to an hour per day (from noon to 1:00 p.m. on sea days; closed when the ship is in port for an entire day). If you see a line of guests waiting to be seated, do not be deterred as the line moves fast and the tables are plenty. Lunch fare includes sandwiches, soups, light salads, fish and heartier entrees.

Follows the complete list of ms Amsterdam restaurants and food bars.

  • Pinnacle Grill (86-seat reservations-only seafood/steakhouse restaurant with fine wines selection; free for passengers under 12 yo). The venue transforms into “An Evening at le Cirque” once per cruise via partnership with NYC “Le Cirque” French restaurant.

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

Activities on ms Amsterdam kick off right after breakfast and go on through the evening hours. There are shows in Queen's Lounge twice per night, ranging from Vegas-style reviews to sets by magicians and comedians. The 2-level Queen's Lounge is quite opulent with its Bob Mackie gowns and a stage framed by a duo of large female statues. The bars onboard feature entertainment at different hours and guests might catch classical music in Explorer's Lounge and singing in Rembrandt's. Both the Ocean Bar and Explorer's are great for pre- or post-dinner cocktails. There is also a wine-tasting bar situated across from Culinary Arts Center (with very limited hours, usually open just an hour during port days and three hours while at sea). The Sports Bar is adjacent to the Casino, and is lightly visited.
