I have been on a total of 10 cruises in the past 10 years (8 of which were in Europe), four on Celebrity, two each on Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, one on Princess, and this one. I was under the mistaken belief that HAL would be on a par with Celebrity. Not only was that belief mistaken, but Holland America is far worse than any of the others. First, the good. Our stateroom accommodations ...

Sailing from Barcelona, Spain on July 1, 2014 - 11 Nights. Headline “How to open the show on a very, very poor performance.” Yesterday we boarded the ms Noordam in Barcelona, and are scheduled to spend the first full day after boarding still in port in Barcelona. As past mariners as part of the Holland America program, we have come to expect a consistent quality of service no matter what ship we ...

My wife and twin 10 y/o girls had a great time on the Noordam. We started in Barcelona and ended in Rome. Our cabin was a Neptune Suite 7081 which we took as a last minute upgrade. Great room, great service and we enjoyed the services of the Neptune Lounge. We arrived in Barcelona and spent our first night at the Majestic Hotel which I would recommend for location and service. The next day we got ...

Honestly couldn't have asked for much better! Although there were slight glitches at certain times it was overall quite good! FOOD was great I ordered room service a few nights very late yet they still managed to show up on time at my room 90% of the time and always got my order right! Breakfasts and lunches were well organized and suppers were quite outstanding, they had so many options and all ...
