Zuiderdam-First cruise after drydock
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
There was never an announcement not to drink the contaminated water which for me, being a doctor, presented a health hazard for the elderly, many whom had compromised immune systems. We ended the cruise by being persistent with the Hotel Manager and Guest Relations Manager, and Holland America agreed to put us up for a night in Aruba, take care of our transfers and plane fare for our trip home, and refund our cruise. As we were finalizing the paper work, there was another power failure leaving us in the dark. We disembarked at 10 pm, the ship was to sail on at 11 pm. Our flight left Aruba on time the following day, and were were overjoyed, arriving home and off that miserable ship. This was our first and last cruise on Holland America. Less
Cabin review: 4141
Cabin 4141Average size cabin. Loads of storage;the most we have encountered on any cruise ship. The sofa was soiled so much we wouldn't sit on it. Mildew in shower. Little water pressure in shower. Water came out of faucet scolding. Carpet needed to be replaced. veranda needed cleaning. Glass on veranda extremely dirty. Rubber stripping hanging off the bathroom door. All in all, an average cabin at best.
