Cruising, Travel, MS Nieuw Amsterdam, Barcelona

As Kaye waves goodbye to Barcelona her journey is just beginning. The game plan is ahead and there’s no turning back now.

Boarding the good ship MS Nieuw Amsterdam was incredibly easy. As instructed, we had checked in online, so it was simply a matter of dropping our tagged luggage, undergoing a security check, showing tickets and passport and then we enjoyed an easy stroll onto the ship, including a cheesy photo along the way.

We then made our way to our cabin, 8055, on the eighth deck, a stateroom with a sunny balcony and two lounge chairs. We quickly learnt that the decks number downwards, so the 11th is the top viewing deck, called the observation deck. And Level 1, the lowest is the main deck.

Lunch was being served in most of the restaurants, so we took sandwiches and iced tea out by the pool and soaked up the sunshine.

After this snack, we will explore all other decks and look forward to featuring them in later enews.
