My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (23+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our fifth cruise with Holland America. The 7-day Fort Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale cruise started on November 24, 2019. The ship was the Nieuw Statendam. This cruise included our children and their spouses ... 6 of us. Boarding the ship was very easy. The long boarding line looked horrible but it moved fast and the Boarding staff were very efficient. Our room was towards the rear of the ship on deck 8, room 8187. This was a good location as we were near the primary sources of food on decks 2/3 and 9. This was a bad location if you wanted to go to the front of the ship. Most points of interest are on decks 2 and 3. The ship was one year old and was nice; very clean. The staff was great and the included food was excellent. There are many specialty restaurants and coffee bars that charge for their services. The ship provided complimentary nothing. The Program Director (he has a new title now?)provided information about basically everything you needed to know on a timely basis. The entertainers were very professional and excellent musicians and dancers. The Program Director and Captain provided excellent presentations. The passengers and the crew were all very nice people from all walks of life. The people on the ship made the cruise interesting and enjoyable. The only real negative was the nickel and diming on the ship. He felt like nothing was included in the cruise except the main restaurant and the buffet. The visited Ports of Call follow. The HAL Private Island – Our first port was located in the Bahamas. The private HAL resort was very nice. We took the Sting Ray Experience where we snorkeled with sting rays. It was great. The trainer was very nice and taught the group about sting rays and allowed us to take photos with them. It was well done. Turks and Caicos – We did not take a ship tour. The island is small and primarily has a nice beach. We took an Island Tram tour for $50 person with an additional charge of $1.90 if you use a credit card. We toured the island on the tour which took around 2 hours. It probably was the most interesting thing to do on the island. The beach was wonderful with lots on fish to see if you have a mask and snorkel. Puerto Plata – The port in the Dominican Republic was very nice and new appearing. We took the ship tour to the Ocean World Adventure Park and the Dolphin Swim. The park is about 15 minutes from the dock and is sort of a small Sea World. It was surprising nice. We swam with the dolphins in an up close and personal manner. It was great. The remainder of the park was very nice. This was a great tour. Key West – We have been to Key West many times. It is always fun. One of the don't miss foods in Key West is the Frozen Dark Chocolate covered Key Lime Pie on a Stick. It can be purchased at Kermit's (200 Elizabeth St.), the green building near the harbor. It is the best. Overall, the cruise was fun … no security concerns anywhere. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we had cruised on Holland to Alaska and the timing fit our schedule. We loved the ship, absolutely beautiful. The open seating option for dinner was great, music was wonderful. We felt there could be more entertainment in the evenings, music every night got a bit boring for us. Staff seemed very happy and eager to serve. We loved Holland’s private island, Georgetown in Grand Cayman. Falmouth in Jamaica was so-so, very poor area outside of the port, be careful if you venture out on your own, take a tour. We liked the shopping in Cozumel. Deck 3 is great for walking laps. Beautiful fitness center. The food overall was very good, lots of fruits and vegetables if you want to focus on eating healthy. Lido Buffett on the 9th level was always consistently good with lots of choices. We highly recommend the ship and this cruise. Read Less

This was our 9th year in a row on Holland America. We had a veranda cabin with four cabins in a row, and opened all balconies to connect. Rooms were fine, and stewards were on their game. We ate in the Main Dining Room all nights except for two, when we went to Pinnacle Grill. Main Dining Room food was very good, but service was so slow we were unable to attend any shows. We left dinner twice prior to being served the entrees. Shows were also moved from 10 PM to 9 PM. This made it impossible to make it to a show for an 8 PM diner. Dinner at the Pinnacle is nice, but the portions are so large, and the service is so slow, it took three hours to get done. Our party of 7 was served so slowly that some left before dessert and coffee. Ports and excursions were plenty fun and the excursions were a lot of fun for all ages. Read Less
