A wonderful 9 days onboard Rotterdam!

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

My family of four including 2 kids, age 11 and 7, sailed on Rotterdam for 9 days in February 2024 and had a wonderful time! This is our 3rd HAL cruise and they continue to impress. The crew on board Rotterdam is fantastic! I'm so impressed with how hard they work and their ability to remember all of our names by the end of the 1st day of the cruise. HAL still does housekeeping twice a day which I ...

Nice time on the Rotterdam

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

Mr. Boston
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had a very nice 9 day Southern Caribbean cruise that visited Aruba and Curaçao. We missed our stop on Half Moon Cay due to the weather. We booked Club Orange and a Retreat Cabana in advance, both enhanced our experience greatly as the ship sailed full. We tried to dine in all of the specialty restaurants except the Pinnacle Grill which we’ve dined in many times on other ships. We really ...

Stopped ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

Murphysmessage
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Here’s what I wish I knew before I went. Excellent location for access to the front of the ship, spa, wet steam, dry sauna, hydro pool, gym, kid-free sundeck on deck 12. The food was excellent everyday except the first day in the Lido. On that day I got the lasagna from the buffet that was not very good. However I was told the lasagna in the dining room was much much better. In fact the lasagna ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Nieuw Statendam

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were on a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on Holland's Nieuw Statendam from Feb. 4- 11. We loved the ship and were to have stops in Half Moon Cay (loved it), Ocho Rios, Jamaica (got cancelled due to damage of a Carnival Ship in their pier), and re routed to Montego Bay, Jamaica (didn't care for it), Grand Cayman ( got cancelled due to a severe storm that hit it before we got there), and finally ...

Wonderful cruise with some caveats

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Nieuw Statendam

twprincessfirsties
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We were on a 7 night Western Caribbean cruise with scheduled stops in Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. Embarkation was fairly fast. At Fort Lauderdale, you are put in a group of 30 people and you board when your group is called, so it was about 45 minutes to board, with no issues at all with getting to our cabin. The ship itself is beautiful and well kept. We noticed that none of the ...

Twelve day February 2024 cruise on HAL Rotterdam

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

mindySUE
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Easiest embarking ever. We were on board by 11:30 am sitting at the Lido having lunch. Disembark was super quick and easy thanks to the face scanning technology at the Ft Lauderdale cruise port. This was our 7th cruise on an HAL ship, out of 57 total cruises ( other lines mostly Celebrity, RCL, Oceania). Food varied from being poor to fair in the Lido, Deck 9, to very good in the Main ...

HAL offers terrific service, but needs improvement

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Eurodam

ant711
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

The ship was clean and beautiful, everything seemed to be working, and the service was absolutely fabulous. The Eurodam is a little older now, but still very nice. On service, standouts were our cabin steward who helped our disabled mother very much in her suite, the management in the Tamarind, who went above and beyond, and the disembarkation help we received because we were traveling with a ...

14 Day Southern Caribbean cruise

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Zaandam

Name Taken
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We took this cruise as a "back-to-back" cruise with a 15 Day Panama Canal cruise on the same ship. We changed cabins from aft port hole to aft interior. This was to try out these types of cabins, and see what the experience is like without a balcony of our own - and honestly, to see if these far less expensive cabins would serve us as well as the balcony / suite cabins. We found that the two ...

Haven't sailed Holland America since 2007

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

Nurse321
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I am an avid cruiser. I cruised Holland in 2007. After this sailing, I felt that it was for an older crowd and I wanted to go on cruises that were for families. Since then, I sailed with Norwegian, Princess Royal and Carnival. The crew on the Rotterdam were very friendly and accommodating. The food was very good.(we enjoyed the lido, dive in and the New York deli) The music clubs were ...
