Cabin class accommodations aboard Nieuw Amsterdam were enough to amply merit her reputation as one of the world’s great luxury liners. Every amenity for a pleasant, comfortable transatlantic crossing was present. Over half of all Cabin Class cabins had private baths or showers, and the public rooms were excpetionaly spacious, providing an unusual amount of recreation area.
Plenty of space for dancing, and comfortable chairs and tables for chatting and tea time were to be found in the cheerful Cabin Class Lounge. The Lounge was flanked by two adjacent “sea-view” verandahs that extended to the sides of the ship.

The spacious Cabin Class Foyer (left) with its decorative, aluminum zodiac wall plaques and the domed “Cabin” Dining Salon (right) typified the light airy comfort so characteristic of accommodations in Cabin Class. When cruising, the door in the Dining Salon separating Cabin Class from First Class was opened forming one of the most spacious dining rooms afloat.

The Stuyvesant Cafe was one of the most popular centers for enjoying the company of congenial shipboard companions. Adjoining the Cafe was a sunny veranda with picture windows overlooking the Cabin Class Sports deck.
