An escape from 65 straight days of 90 degree weather in Florida made this cruise to New England and Canada seem like a good idea. And it certainly was in that respect; we had two days of rainy/foggy/cold weather, but both were at-sea ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had mixed expectations. But overall we felt it to be a good experience. We found that the Zuiderdam was a well maintained ship, the staff very serviceminded and the food was good and varied. However ... Read more

As living in Copenhagen, it was no problem to get transport to the embarkation which was smooth. The ship is nice and layed out in "classical cruise style" with lots of flowers and art. The Zuiderdam is indeed not an old rust ... Read more

Norway, Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, and returning to our home port of New York were reasons for choosing this cruise. Apparently this itinerary appealed to many well travelled travelers as there was quite an international complement ... Read more

We booked this Viking Passage cruise because of its appealing itinerary which included both Iceland and Greenland. Overall we were pleased with the cruise but cannot award it five stars because of too many minor irritations. We have been ... Read more

The combination of these two cruises ticked a lot of boxes for us. Boarding and disembarkation procedures were of the usual high standard we have come to expect from HAL. The other thing that impresses me is HAL's insistence that all ... Read more

Chose it to get out of the Florida heat for Aug. The staff was fantastic. Food was good in all restaurants. Entertainment was very poor. The ship is in need of renovation, no major problems, just old and worn. Had a guaranteed suite, ... Read more

We truly enjoyed our 12-day cruise on the Baltic Sea. The meals in the dining room were wonderful with lots of great variety and super dessert options. We were assigned a table with a window overlooking the back of the ship and it was ... Read more

We did back to back Baltic and Transatlantic cruises for a total 29 days so please excuse my linking them. Sometimes I worry that I'm easy to please, because I wonder about some of the things I see people complain about. Yes, sure there ... Read more

We got on the ship at 11:30, and embarkation was very smooth. The ship was showing its age a bit, with not a lot of bells and whistles, but we chose this cruise for its destinations. (It was a Baltic cruise.) The staff was excellent, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we'd heard good things about Holland American and they offered the best deal to the fjords and Iceland, a place we'd never been. Overall I was very happy with the experience and the ship itself. The service ... Read more

First I would like to say that every single staff person, whether in the restaurants, stateroom steward or anyone doing the myriad of jobs on the ship were exemplary. These people work so hard and always have a smile and are ready to help ... Read more

We originally wanted to cruise on the Koningsdam, but having read adverse reviews, and the fact that there are no chairs on the promenade deck, we chose this cruise because it called at ports we had not been to. When we booked the cruise, ... Read more

We were actually booked on an RCCL 8 day Norwegian Fjord trip in August but then we received a Holland America Casino offer which saved us a few thousand dollars. Jumped on the opportunity to go for 12 nights AND save money. With that ... Read more

It is something we always wanted to see but I never received a survey from Holland America and wanted to mention a few of the crew who went beyond just serving and made the cruise even more enjoyable! Mark Sauza was always on top of things ... Read more
