We choose this cruise because of the destination. Island, Iceland, Greenland and Canada. The boat starts to be a little bite old (old fashioned decor) but everything on board is made to make you feel happy and confortable. Really clean, ... Read more

I can't compare HAL to any other line as it's the only one I've cruised on. However, my Mother was on almost every line available in the US and Europe. After she tried HAL she stayed with them and became a 4 star mariner until her ... Read more

I absolutely love the lanai room. But, the Veendam is getting dated and it is a little rough. For example, the tile on the hot tubs is all coming off and many things simply do not appear in in top shape. Overall, I felt the food was good ... Read more

Headed to the Eastern Caribbean early November. We were late to embark due to flight delays but I think it worked in our favor as there were no lines or wait times to board the ship. We specifically chose HAL as we're a bit contrarian ... Read more

I love Holland America. Embarkation - I rate this a C. Honestly, I felt they got us on the ship late, (12:00p) and it was really disorganized. No one knew the boarding was numbered and everyone rushed up to try and get in. The lady ... Read more
