We returned from a week cruise to New England from Quebec. We have cruised many times and with different lines. Favorite destinations are the Caribbean and Mexico, we did Alaska once. We are in our late 50's and still working. This cruise ... Read more

This is a very long review as I am trying to cover all the areas suggested by Cruise Critic. We have cruised with HAL in the past and love the small ships. After a long and miserable winter we were eager for a break that would not break ... Read more

We sailed as a couple on the Veendam’s first cruise of 2014 to this area from May 10-17, 2014. The ship had just sailed from Ft. Lauderdale on May 1 to Quebec City and our south bound cruise ended in Boston. This was our 30th cruise ... Read more

It was my birthday and time for a cruise. We always search on price- and this one came up. We have cruised many times and were now in the range of "senior discounts" - so why not try Holland America? Quebec City is a great port. The ... Read more

We live a few hours away from Quebec City and we took a train from Ottawa to Quebec City and spent a night there before boarding the ship. Embarkation was extremely quick with no lineups at all. Had lunch in the dining room and luggage was ... Read more

From beginning to end, a fantastic two weeks. Embarkation: Smooth and seamless, took less than ten minutes from getting to the pier to dropping my bags in my cabin. Cabin: Excellent and just what I had picked out. My cabin stewards ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with HAL and it never ceases to amaze me the criticisms I read. Not sure what everyone's expectations are, but for us a vacation is for relaxation, learning, experiencing and meeting new people: recharging the ... Read more

This was our first Holland America cruise. It was very good but we were left thinking that our previous cruises with Celebrity were just a little bit better overall. Having read previous reviews on the Canada & New England cruise, I ... Read more

This was my first time sailing on the Eurodam, and the first HAL ship in this size category. At 2,100 passengers, I was a bit concerned about how crowded things might be. I arrived late Saturday evening, so missed the mass hysteria that ... Read more

Based on previous sailings with same size HAL ships, I was really looking forward to an above average cruise. What we got was very ordinary. The ship is nice but has very subdued colour scheme and furnishings which are relaxing, but not ... Read more

GENERAL: We are in our 50s and have sailed with HAL three times previously. We always feel like the "kids" onboard, since almost everyone is retired. The music and entertainment are geared to a generation older than we are, but we know ... Read more

Our first cruise ever was in January 2013 in the Caribbean with the New Amsterdam of HAL. The voyage with the Veendam around New England in Sept./Oct. was our second experience. To start with: embarkation in Quebec City and disembarkation ... Read more

I'm a bit late with this review but here goes. I'd planned this trip for a long time but was concerned that I might miss the best of the fall colors. I needn't have worried. Fall was late, we had beautiful sunny weather and the colors were ... Read more

It may have been just as applicable to title this review "The Great Race to Florida" or "Retirement Home at Sea". We embarked on October 6th in Quebec City for the 10 day cruise to Fort Lauderdale. The ship traveled at 20 - 22 knots on ... Read more

We flew to Quebec through Detroit 3 days prior to our cruise to spend some time in the city and surroundings and were highly pleased with this decision despite costs of hotels in Canada. Be aware that commuter airlines which fly into ... Read more

My wife and I(late 60s, early 70s)took our first cruise with Holland America, 9/16/2010. We found the Eurodam to be very attractive, clean and well designed ship. Also, the entertainment facilities, restaurant areas and lounges to be very ... Read more

We went on the 10-day Colors of Canada and New England Cruise. It left Quebec City on Sept. 6th and docked in Manhattan on Sept. 16. The Eurodam's maiden voyage was in July 2008, and I noticed that some of the early reviews complained ... Read more

Holland America's new ship, Eurodam, failed to impress. We (me, 49 and wife, 48) have only been on one other cruise—Norwegian Star to Alaska / Glacier Bay in August 2005—so we don't have a lot of ships to compare. Selected the 14-day ... Read more

This was the first time the Eurodam had left this port, and as most of the bad parts of the review will be about this issue, I will get it out of the way up front. Unorganized. The BEST thing about the ship is that it is NEW, still has ... Read more
