This was the second cruise with HAL as they promised they would get it right this time as they got it so wrong on our first cruise. My wife is very hard of hearing and when she takes her aids out to go to sleep at night she is totally deaf ... Read more

When you think of Holland America and know that it has an older crowd, know that on this particular ship the average age is 80. Of the 1800 passengers less than 100 were under the age of 60. Very few were even in their 60s. Almost everyone ... Read more

Our 9th cruise, and 2nd on Holland America was just O.K. The food was Buffet Restaurant quality at best, ( think Golden Corral, Old Country Buffet). Dining room service was not quite up to par as I've experienced on most other cruise ... Read more

First time booking with Holland America. Embarkation was a breeze. This is a smaller ship so getting around within the ship was fairly quick and easy. They did a good job of explaining and offering shore excursions for a range of taste. ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our time on the Maasdam. The ship has been impeccably maintained and of course the HAL crew/staff are all top-notch. No complaints and I even won in the casino! Canada/New England has some very rural stops as well as ... Read more

Went on the Noordam out of Vancouver. Chose Vancouver for a couple of reasons. Lots of flights from our hometown ( Edmonton) and I read that seeing Alaska was better than taking a ship from Seattle. Not sure if that is true, but that is ... Read more

Let me say upfront, that this review is skewed towards the disabled and the problems we encountered would not affect most people. Overall it was a great cruise and the staff was fantastic. The good out weighed the bad, for both of us. ... Read more

This was our seventh cruise with Holland America and we were not disappointed. Booking at almost the last minute with an itinerary that seemed unexciting, we were prepared just to relax and enjoy and did we ever! Embarkation went very ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise on HAL. We have always been pleased with the service and planning. There was the occasional blip, but nothing that was not handled quickly and effectively. We are experienced travelers and we know that "things ... Read more

I wonder, in reading other reviews, if perhaps some people become inured to the magic of a cruise. I do not have the means to go on cruise after cruise. Truthfully, I don't have the means to go on even one cruise... I was treated to this ... Read more

Reading recent, highly negative reviews of Veendam's Boston/Quebec run, I can hardly believe DH and I were on the same trip! We enjoyed our cruise and would happily embark again. I'm not saying there are no areas for improvement on ... Read more

Since we live fairly close to San Diego, we don't have the hassle factor of air travel to and from the cruise. We arrived at the port around 11:00 AM, and were greeted by "Sherry", a wonderful person at the pier who coordinates the ... Read more
