poor cruise

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Norwegian Sun

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise due to the deal they offered, never thinking it was so poor. The video advertising is miss leading to say the least. First, the food was less than mediocre. it was clearly an effort to cut corners. The cruise population was overwhelmingly made up of elderly with walkers, scooters, canes and the feeble. with activities directed to the elderly such as bingo. The ...

A mostly excellent experience, with one surprising disappointment

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Koningsdam

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

I just got off a 7-day Inside Passage Alaska cruise on Koningsdam. Overall, it was a great experience, though with one disappointment many may find surprising given Holland America's reputation. It was my first cruise on Holland America and my first cruise period in 13 years. This may be useful context when putting my review in perspective. First, the itinerary. Alaska has been on my bucket ...

Amazing staff.

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Eurodam

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My first cruise. Staff was very accommodating. If I needed something, or had a question, they were very helpful. So much so, I did leave a nice 'thank you' card, and tip. From the time I embarked, to the time I disembarked, all my needs were met. The food, oh my goodness, what can I say about the food. So much. Masses of food. I had breakfast brought to my room each morning, but the ...

Disappointment in Holland America

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

The thing that made Holland stand out from other Cruise lines and was a tradition is now gone. On every Holland ship you could count on there would be a Priest. But now you are like any other cruise line a real disappointment. Embarkation was a slow painful process it seems that Vancouver is becoming harder and harder to board. The ship was fine and the personnel were pleasant and ...

Lots of tech and managerial issues ... standards seem to be slipping

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We’re back cruising again! This cruise is fundamentally different than the dozen or so others that we’ve been on, as it’s the first one “sailing” north that we’ve been on, and by north I mean we’ll end up at Denali National Park in Alaska and not dealing with tropical heat. In fact, parts of Denali are above the Arctic Circle. You can’t actually cruise to Denali as it’s deep in Alaska’s ...

Alaska is a must-do, HAL is a must-avoid

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Eurodam

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

My wife and I just returned from a 7-day trip on the Holland America Eurodam from Seattle to Alaska. At the top I will say Alaska is an absolutely must-do destination. Despite our issues with Holland America and the Eurodam, every single stop on the itinerary in Alaska brought at least one “wow” moment. Unfortunately, the ship and line we decided to sail with, the Holland America Eurodam, was a ...

Worst cruise ever in 15 years of cruising

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Where do I begin...First let me say that the weather was perfect, normally supposed to be raining this time of year but we got super lucky and it was sunny and 60's the whole time. Second, Alaska is AMAZING!!! This trip was the Dawes glacier cruise out of Seattle. Everywhere we went was amazing. Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway were incredible ports. Now for the cruise ship, deep breath... The ...

Celebrity Millennium Alaska May 2023

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Celebrity Millennium

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Celebrity Millennium, 7 day southbound Hubbard Glacier from Seward to Vancouver Concierge class cabin 19-26 May 2023 I’d never been on a cruise until 11 months ago and just finished my third. May never reach “105” that the most cruised passenger onboard ship had, but that’s a worthy goal. Booked short notice as the ship was only 50% capacity and got a great offer through Celebrity Blue ...

wonderful scenic cruise

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We went on our first Alaska cruise September of 2021 when the Celebrity Millineum had only 600 passengers - (first cruises after Covid). It was great with less people, but some places were closed due to covid like Canada. We decided to return to Alaska this May, as it is easy to travel there living in the Northwest. The ship was most likely at full capacity this time. Our only problem was ...

mediocre at best, disorganized, and not for celiacs

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Noordam

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We originally chose this cruise because of the shore excursions. The excursions, for the most part were very good, although the timing of getting to and from them was certainly not done for customer convenience. In one instance we had two shuttles returning to the boat. they would not let us get on the first one which left half full. the second now was stuffed with not space to move, and no air ...
