Great cruiseline if one knows how to avoid some pitfalls

Our third cruise, but the first with Holland America Line. Boarding as the usual stressful super heated mayhem. I wish cruise lines could learn something from Middle Eastern air carriers such as Emirates in that respect. The ship was clean and well managed. That it was a Dutch boat showed by the fact that they had LGBT single parties. We (traditional married couple) booked a suite and our ...

We chose this cruise as it was the right timing for us leaving from where we were staying in the tail end of our honeymoon travels . We loved the Tamarind restaurant and the dining room, We tried Pinnacle restaurant twice and were disappointed twice with missing orders and dreadful desserts and we are not hard to please! Great gymnasium with helpful staff, enjoyed the thermal pool and lounges. ...

Staff, crew, and cruise experience: This was our first cruise, and we're hooked. Apart from a minor hiccup with the computers going down at embarkation, the staff and crew ran the rest of our 28 day cruise like clock work. From the friendly staff at the bars, restaurants, and our totally epic stateroom attendants, they made a great experience even better. Captain Timmers had a fantastic ...

This cruise review is done by RicksClan 2 but we only have 1 CC account because we have to have different emails. :} RicksClan 1 used to be Pioneer Scion but we just changed it....I am more wordy and write most reviews. Bucket list: Barcelona and Rome with a Sept 4, 2016 cruise in the middle. This was perfect. We saw lots of places that would have been difficult to get to on our own. ...

The only reason I'm giving it a 2 instead of a negative 200 is because there were some positives 1. The ship was docked for long periods of time and there were only 2 sea days which was great because the actual cruise line is so horrible it was nice to really enjoy being off the ship and in beautiful locations. 2. Some of the staff members were great 2 to be exact and although this is a ...

The cruise was chosen as a good value option with interesting ports. It delivered in some areas, not so good in others. The brilliant - 1 service was faultless both in dining and staterooms 2 the stateroom was roomy, clean and light 3 embarkation & disembarkation left Celebrity for dead The average - 1 the entertainment ranged from very good to don't bother 2 the choice of ...

My concept of a Mediterranean cruise is Barcelona to Venice. We've sailed with Celebrity, Princess and Azamara and based on everything I knew I was fully expecting Holland America to meet or exceed our past experiences. It was not to be. The ports of call and HAL's shore excursions we all wonderful. But the ship design (pools and atrium), and more importantly the food and service fell very ...

The air conditioning in rooms 1124 and 1126 does not work properly. After number complaints it could not be fixed. I did get 400 credit for each room. But I would have preferred more since it was so hot during our trip. Be warned. The dining was really good. Enjoyed all the food from various differnt venues. The excursions wer over priced. Definitely get those on your own if you can. The ...

Very informative active cruise with many Ports & Cities to visit. Could have spent a little longer in some places than others but overall it gave you the opportunity to sample a variety of lands & customs. The cruise itself was very smooth , cabin 495 comfy and fairly quiet. Entertainment was good without being outstanding apart from a couple of standout acts. Overall a very enjoyable cruise ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Our previous cruises have been on Celebrity, Princess, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival. The itinerary was wonderful and the ports were very interesting. My 2 star rating is due to the following reasons. 1. The ship needs serious updating. Everything seems dark and dull. 2. The internet system is ridiculous. Only one person in the cabin can ...
