Holland America and their
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Now the bad news. The crew was incompetent and the officers didn't care. The Pinnacle dining room was a joke. 2 of the 3 steaks that I ordered were woefully over cooked. They crow about having a 1600 degree broiler. Now they just need someone who knows how to use it. Chef Rob had attitude like you would not believe. Nose in the air and out of joint.
The hotel manager aboard ship, Rene, informed me that I was only 1 of 2,000 passengers. So deal with More it. Thank you Rene! I had only paid $7,300 for the privilege!
One gets tired of all the cute "Dam Ship" t's, caps, mugs, etc. What they need aboard Noordam is "We don't give a Dam!" apparell for the officers to wear.
Only after I lowered my expectations to the point of; short of sinking the ship I expected nothing from the crew, did I begin to enjoy the cruise. The service was that bad.
We have received a nice form letter for HA but nothing else. Put up and shut up is the working model at Holland America - and that is for the paying guests! Less
