Here is a sneak peek: The ms Nieuw Amsterdam is at sea on her first cruise, a short three-day voyage from Venice to Dubrovnik and back. The passengers are a mix of European and American guests and many are staying on for the next full cruise that will sail to ports in Greece and Italy. And while the Nieuw Amsterdam has everything you could imagine in the way of amenities from a complete spa to several dining outlets this Holland America ship (like the other 14 in the fleet) is filled with an art collection that would be the envy of many museums. And the art is taken very seriously.
