Having set sails with RCCL, NCL, and Celebrity, I tried not to set my standard too high because I know that HAL is going to be different and more traditional. After spending a week on Oosterdam, I can break it down and say things that I ... Read more

This was a 24 day Cruise. The Cruise started in San Diego through the Panama Canal. There was a choice to disembark in Fort Lauderdale, New York or Boston. I cruised this with my elderly father who uses a rollator walker. We decided ... Read more

I booked this cruise in December as a gift to my husband who had, until now, never cruised. We wanted to try a short, 5-day, cruise to make sure he wouldn't become deathly ill from motion sickness and to just give him a taste for sailing. ... Read more

We took this transatlantic cruise back to Rome having sailed across in the other direction last October. The food was excellent as usual. Still one of the best buffets at sea (but still a little too much salt at times). The crew is the ... Read more

My husband and I were eagerly anticipating HAL's newest Pinnacle class ship, and we were thoroughly impressed with most everything on Koningsdam! I am disabled and always bring my wheelchair, and our handicap accessible cabin was perfect! ... Read more

Our group of young adults (upper 20s) did a week long cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam with family and significant others, total of six of us. We chose this cruise because of the price, dates, itinerary and the fact that we had not yet been ... Read more

This was a very informative busy cruise. It was a great way to experience a lot of different Asian ports . The ship itself is small without any extra perks like climbing walls or skating rinks but the trip highlights some ... Read more

We are regular HAL cruisers and were very pleased with this cruise. Almost all the ports were very interesting, and we learned a lot about the Western side of South America. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. The Maasdam is ... Read more

We cruise quite frequently (our 84th Cruise) and this one was available at a reasonable cost at the time I was searching for a get-away to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. We have not sailed with HAL for many years and was happy to ... Read more

We scheduled this cruise because it gave us six days on four islands (with an overnight in Honolulu) which seemed to balance out the sea days. It also included a night passing of Kilauea with the spectacular sight of lava entering the sea ... Read more

We were invited to join some friends on this cruise. Since my partner hates to fly and this left from our Hometown of San Diego-we decided to give it at try. We are 2 star Mariners and although we've been on many cruises but never one ... Read more

Like the colour scheme, which is more subdued than I remember on the other 3 Vista class ships, Food in the MDR seemed a step up over our last cruise on Eurodam. The wait staff have changed from pen and paper to tablets, with a noticeable ... Read more

We chose this cruise on a short notice three weeks before sailaway. Having had a focus on Celebrity Cruises before, we were in the mood to try something new, since Celebrity turned towards a path in the past, which was more and more not ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it fitted in with our annual company closedown in January each year, when we must take most of our annual holiday leave. The price was great for this peak holiday time in Australia. Both the embarkation and ... Read more

Cabin SS6106. Redo is very nice. Ship was clean in good condition. Staff, as always, is the very best, although very overworked, which leads to less personal attention. MDR food was for the most part good. Some nights, not up to par. ... Read more

I just got back from the 9 night Holiday cruise to the Caribbean on the Nieuw Amsterdam ship. The overall experience was good, but I will tell you the good, the bad and the downright ugly. First, the great. Embarkation was smooth as ... Read more

The food safety and health practices makes this the healthiest ship on the sea, which is good to know. Service, entertainment, and food was excellent. They had a variety from comedians to classical music. The stops were good too. ... Read more

Some context: My parents and I were introduced to Holland America Line (and cruising itself) about 8 years ago and we instantly fell in love with their luxurious and incredible level of service, hospitality, and cuisine. Our maiden voyage ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on island itinerary and our previous five experiences sailing on other HAL ships. We hold HAL to a higher standard to other cruise lines we have sailed. However, the Rotterdam, in general, was extremely ... Read more

If anyone is keeping score, I'm on the side of the Koningsdam defenders, as opposed to those who wrote somewhat picky negative reviews. Maybe I'm being too harsh with Koningsdam's early critics, but I didn't find many of their dire ... Read more
