This was our first cruise with Holland America and our first Transatlantic cruise. The itinerary was like none we had seen and we were excited to be going to 16Ports! We were impressed with how quickly and smoothly the embarkation and disembarkation went. The Oosterdam was in dry dock prior to our departure from Fort Lauderdale. The two week refit in the Bahamas included: New bottom ...

We tried other transatlantic cruise lines and this is our 9th, and had three previous cruises on Holland America ships. The new ship was perfect. The cabins were improved with larger TV screens and service in the cabin, dining room and all over was outstanding. The people we met on board were in several age groups from 27 to 70 and we had a great time playing trivia and discussing myriad topics ...

We recently cruised across the Atlantic Ocean to Rome on the Koningsdam. This is a beautiful ship, elegant design and well thought out. Crew was very friendly with prompt service. The cabin was very nice and showers were larger. The embarkation and disembarkation process was easy and smooth. Our only disappointment was with the dancing opportunities for ballroom dancers. This was limited to tea ...

First time on the Koningsdam and first transatlantic trip. This fairly new (2 years) ship is tastefully designed in a “modern” style with warm subdued colors and a relaxing feel. The food in all venues was the best we have experienced on a HA ship. The main dining room experience overall was good delivering consistently decent food. The service can be slow at times and the dining room ...

This is my seventeenth cruise and the first one with HAL. I really liked the service and friendliness of the staff. The food was quality. I especially liked the fresh berries for breakfast. We had a transatlantic, I was afraid that they would end. But the berries were daily. I have not seen this with other cruise companies. The choice in the restaurant is decent. On a solemn evening served foie ...

This was our first transatlantic cruise and we chose the Koningsdam for two reasons: we were on her inaugural cruise last year, and she is the right size for such a journey. We like HAL because the ships are simple and elegant, never tacky or showy. And the crew: I haven't encountered such friendly service personnel anywhere--in a hotel or a restaurant or an airplane. Always ready to ...

We like the sea days. no contact with the outside world. The selection of activities on board was very good from computer classes to cooking demonstrations in the Culinary Arts Centre. The food on board was also very good. I liked the speciality restaurants and visited Sel de Mere and the Tamarind twice. Burgers and pizza are also available from their takeaway areas. Entertainment was also very ...

Wanted a Mediterrean cruise on Holland America and was pleased with the brochure choice of ports and the trans Atlantic trip. I use a cane so I choose a cabin mid-ship, both horizontally and vertically for ease of access to all parts of the ship. However, after leaving Rome on the 2nd leg of the journey, on Monday, my cabin flooded in the middle of the night and I was given a "sleeping cabin" on ...

Ship is new , nice , great staff , great food .... but .... After spending more than 11 days above queens lounge, loud music , floor and furniture vibrating between 0730/midnight , loud drums, Lyrics, really unacceptable. This cruise was far from a relaxing cruise holiday. What angers me most , they know, it's a know problem, first they expect you to become angry before solutions offered ...

Why did we choose this ship? Frankly, because of the price and the fact it was new. To our pleasant surprise, it was an outstanding experience. This ship is beautiful with a music theme that is pervasive. The pool are is resort-like with sliding roof and luxurious cabanas. The New York deli breakfast bagels and pizza in the pool area is delicious. At night the area is transformed into a movie ...
