My husband and I (60s, late 50s) have just returned from our wonderful Baltic Adventure sailing. Almost 40 cruises for myself as a travel agent since 1978, and my husband has sailed on around 20. We like that Holland America is keeping ... Read more

Agree with many other folks that the Eurodam is definitely in need of a facelift - tired furnishings & worn appearance. Shore excursions add HUGE dollars to your overall cost. Yes, the liquor policy is very restrictive; each person ... Read more

Generally the ship was "tired" even though it's not very old. Carpeting, wall paper, furniture and bathrooms were all shabby and in need of updating. Food in the Lido and Rembrandt went from mediocre to terrible with service ... Read more

We (late 50's couple) did the 12-day Baltic cruise in July 2015. This was our 2nd cruise on HAL (9th cruise overall) and after this cruise, I think HAL may become our "go-to" cruise line. Design of the Ship -- I want to ... Read more

What can I say? We loved it. The weather is perfect in July for touring. Chilly in the morning... warming as the day goes on. Sailing into Stockholm is beyond peaceful and beautiful. (Veranda cabin pays for itself that morning ... Read more

We have previously done cruises on Regent, Seabourne, and Uniworld so while not a cruise snob, I have been fortunate to experience some of the top cruise lines. I chose Prinsendam because the itinerary was interesting; the boat was small; ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on Itinerary...it was a Baltic cruise that did NOT visit St. Petersburg, which is hard to find. (Note: we had been to St. Petersburg years ago and did not care to visit there again.) This particular itinerary ... Read more

We booked this cruise over a year in advance because of the itinerary and wanted a smaller ship. Whilst we have sailed HAL 4 times prior , it generally is not our favorite. We were very pleasantly surprised. We knew the ship was older ... Read more

We had a wonderful anniversary cruise for twelve days to the Baltic. We were told that we would get upgraded to a nicer room due to pricing problems. It didn't happen. But the room, though small, was nice enough. Internet is pretty ... Read more

Cruising the Norwegian Fjords has been on our bucket list so the itinerary for this cruise was a big draw as was the ship. We enjoy smaller, more intimate ships and the Prinsendam was perfect. We sailed her a few years ago around England, ... Read more

I want to state upfront that my only other large cruise experience was with Regent, and I considered HAL because friends recommended the line (but not the Eurodam specifically). While I did not expect the same quality of cruise as I had ... Read more
