Nieuw Amsterdam Caribbean Cruise 18th Nov 2012
Have booked this cruise with my partner for 14 nights, anyone else going?

Any comments re the ship or tips of where to go and what to see?

Congrats! I was on the original Nieuw Amsterdame. The crew will go totally out of their way for you and the ship will be immaculate!

Looking at proposing to my gf whilst on the cruise.

We are flying from Manchester to Heathrow and then Heathrow to Miami, thinking of putting this in hand luggage in the case, will I have a problem going through customs, especially Miami.

Thinking of just having this safe in my hand luggage, thoughts would be good?

Absolutely in hand carried luggage. The thing with Customs is this: as you may recall the declaration form requires you to list items that will remain in the U.S. Strictly speaking, this means you would not have to put the engagement ring on the form. However it could cause an issue if they do find the ring and ask why it isn't listed on the declaration. You'd have to explain it, and then of course the surprise has been blown courtesy of our wondrous Customs & Border Protection service.

Please ask your question on other forums as, frankly, we have little expertise around here for questions about non-U.S. citizens and Customs. Perhaps our Canadian members can help shed some light.

Hi Dave,

I spoke to Miami Airport yesterday from UK and they advised that the ring can go in the hand luggage and no need to declare so no problem.

31 days to go and cant wait to relax on board in the sun.

Great! Let us know how everything goes.

Over the weekend we received an email to say what room we had been allocated. Its the last room at the back of the ship on Rotterdam deck, has anyone stayed there on Nieuw or does anyone have any pictures or videos of this room.

Is the back of the ship good or bad ?

Could someone tell me if this is Nieuw Amsterdam or Eurodam?

Whatever was in the video link is no longer there. Cabins on the back of the ship are fine. Quieter since you have less traffic outside the door.
