Amsterdam has been enhanced with Holland America Line's Explorations Central initiative (EXC). This means passengers can become even more immersed in the culture and lifestyles of the destinations they are visiting by making the most of new opportunities onboard. These include browsing through the interactive maps, detailed port information and an extensive collection of books in the library. Not only this, but there will be local experts brought onboard to answer questions and offer all sorts of information pertaining to the destinations on each itinerary.
“My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week Panama Canal Sunfarer cruise with Holland America Line on the MS Amsterdam.
We flew out to New York and were put up by Holland America in The Marriott Hotel right on Time Square. We couldn't have asked for a better start to the holiday. The hotel was extremely comfortable with very opulent rooms. Indeed, from our bedroom window on the 36th floor, we not only had great views over Time Square, but the next morning could even see our ship, the MS Amsterdam, in her dock.
We must say that the MS Amsterdam is a really superb ship. We were particularly impressed with the organisation of the facilities and everything was available that we would expect to be available. Someone had obviously gone to a lot of time and effort to ensure that 'all the bases' were covered.
