Had a lovely weekend on board the Norwegian Gem, the weather was fantastic and the company (obviously) was great. Ate and drank far too much so will have to be extra good this week. Will try and post some piccies (not that I have many as my camera battery died :sad2: ) soon.

Not sure I'd go back to Amsterdam again but it was nice to say I've been - the 'ladies' in the Red Light District were certainly interesting :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

was that with norwegian cruise lines?

are they nice?

as for amsterdam, it isn't what it used to be....at least it feels that way to me...
seems dirtier and more dangerous than it used to seem to me...

that said, i'll be there again next month...but only for a day...

I'm personally not a big fan of Amsterdam, there are much nicer places to visit in Holland!

I went to Amsterdam with a few work friends back in 98. Have to say yes I enjoyed it, but wouldnt go back myself. Yes Joh Red Light District was interesting and yet sad at the same time. I felt very uncomfortable seeing young teenagers in windows trying to get men to come in. :scared1:

Been to Amsterdam quite a few times and never been to the red light district :confused3

Did a very nice boat trip round the canals and a tour of a diamond factory (couldn't afford to buy any :guilty: ).

I did find a very nice Indian restautant though near my hotel (Brabazon Palace opposite the central station).

Glad you had a good trip :)

It was the maiden voyage of the Norweigan Gem.

The RLD was pretty even if most of the "ladies" weren't:goodvibes

These were a few good looking ones these are the best of the best that we could find.;)

I'd never heard of a multi storey bike park before.

No this one was not taken after a slice of herbal cake ;)
It was taken leaning over a railing to get closer to the ground 'onest.

Lovely photos, Amsterdam is a very pretty city, have to add it to my list!

Did you have enough time to see the city before having to go back on board or did the ship overnight in the port?

We arrived about breakfast time and sailed at 5 the same evening.
