We decided to book this 38-night Holland America (HAL) cruise because it made multiple stops in Greenland and Iceland - two destinations on our bucket list. Other interesting new ports for us were Douglas (the Isle of Man,) Portree ( Isle of Skye) plus Rotterdam, The Netherlands and Liverpool, UK. Ports previously visited by us included ones in New England, Canada and Europe. Even more ...

Done the VoV cruise before - did it again but won't do it a third time. ROTTERDAM needs work - plus I feel HAL has been "Carnivalized". Food in main dining room was so/so - ate in Lido for dinner which we don't care to do but DR menu was uninviting. Orchestra was great but only one on board. So no music for ballroom dancing on show nights - they used recorded music instead. Entertainment in ...

Holland America woos you with exceptional, port intensive itineraries, mid sized ships, excellent hotel service and the promise of sophisticated enrichment. They succeeded in fulfilling our expectations on the first three but failed on the fourth. If you considered this cruise as a floating hotel you would be happy enough. We were satisfied with the dining , it is fresh and well prepared. The ...

we traveled with the whole family. The kids LOVED Splash academy. the counselors were great and kept the kids busy. the complimentary restaurants were fine, although the service was a bit slow. you just have to have the right mind set (you are on vacation so relax) our reservations were generally for 5:30 and we were done with dinner by 7 (skipped dessert) the pool was crowded and often noisy. the ...

Voyage of the Vikings 2012 HAL MS Maasdam The Voyage of the Vikings is a once a year cruise following many of the old ports the Vikings were known to have visited. This year it was a 35 day round trip from Boston leaving July 14th and returning August 18th. We are almost 4 Star Mariners who have cruised on HAL ships for many years. Each year since the Carnival acquisition of the line we have ...

While every traveler hopes for sunny skies and steady seas, this year's VOV journey had it's share of poor weather challenges. Four missed ports, and plenty of time to use your umbrella did seem to place a damper on some travelers spirits. Many of the travelers were veteran cruisers and several had previously gone on a similar voyage. As a first time Voyage of the Vikings cruiser I offer the ...

Bad stuff first:(1)Embarkation was slow. (2)When we got to our cabin on Saturday, there was no heat--and we did not have any heat until the following Thursday. It was not just our cabin, a lot of other people had the same problem. (3)The shows were really rather poor. (4)The gym was minimal and really needed some maintenance. Items of note: (1)The only butter available was unsalted. (2)The ...

We selected this for the itinerary. Four ports were missed due to weather. FOOD: Huge problems in the kitchen. Ordered cod on two nights and it was like rubber. Spoke to chef who, when pressed, stated was a "quality issue." Salmon one night was returned one night when it came out raw. Three from our table send back ribs because they were cold. The kitchen just couldn't seem to deliver hot ...
