If you are taking a cruise that takes over 20 hours to get to you should maximize your stay. We made sure we allowed for a couple of days in Auckland before the cruise and Sydney at the end of the cruise. Holland cruises are known for catering to an older crowd and this cruise was no different. Being in our sixties puts is in the mean demographic of most of our fellow passengers. It was a ...

This was our first cruise to Australia and the South Pacific. We rented an AirBnB in Sydney (near KingsCross) a week before the cruise to explore the many sights. As always with Holland America, the embarkation went smoothly and quickly. Our luggage arrived to our cabin before we did and we were able to get unpacked and ready for our adventure. We set sail in the evening while taking in the ...

This was our first cruise - family of three. Can totally recommend this to everyone. We found arriving to board the most daunting - not having done it before - but there were people everywhere and it seemed a little crazy. But, the staff at the check-in desk were more than happy to help and send us in the right direction. We had a balcony cabin (well worth the extra $ if you can). The ...

It was a last minute decision so we got a very good price on a mini suite with balcony. Embarkation and disembarkation both went very smoothly. Our cabin was lovely with a very comfortable bed. The stewards were great and cabin well serviced. As we went for a nice relaxing rest we did not partake of much in the way of activities however you can do as much or as little as you wish. We did go to ...

After reading some terrible reviews we still went ahead with this cruise and were very, very happy we did. The ship was clean and tidy at all times as was the cabin. The cabin staff were great and the captain kept all passengers up-to-date with weather and port information and took the ship past Turtle and Niue Islands with a history of each over the ship intercom. The head cook was funny ...

First time cruisers. Had a fantastic time, totally waited on hand and foot. A real holiday! I would recommend everyone do at least one cruise in their life. its worth every penny. I am addicted and ready to book another. Being our first cruise we had nothing to compare it to, overheard people complaining about food quality had gone down hill. However, there are a lot of choices and ...

As first time cruisers, we were both a little hesitant as to whether the cruise would be full of 'oldies' as some had said......SURPRISE !!!! Even though hubby is 72 and I am 67 we absolutely loved it. The age of passengers ranged from 1 year olds up to 93 years young. We met some wonderful people and made life long friendships (and they were all much younger than us. The food was lovely and ...
