Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

Zeecook
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Amazing time! Great food in all places Great service all around Ports, we love the Aqua Trax at Halfmoon Cay. We appreciated the clean up and move of clam shells down the beach. Grand Turks- Margaritaville stay- their is a beach at Port. John Glenn exhibit to the right is cool then a smaller beach behind it. Amber Cove - did a bus City tour. Tour guy Homberto was great. 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 ...

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 ...

What could be better

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Nieuw Statendam

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We are cruising with HAL for almost 10 years. And this is the first time we feel obliged to express some critique. We are in our 70s and we do expect that HAL will provide quality time for people like us . This time too many elements of good cruise were missing. First, the usual entertainment at night, at the main stage, was extremely poor. The three shows with dancers were at high school ...

Leisure Cruise On the Nieuw Statendam

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Would have been a great trip, but a few preventable issues left a bad taste

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

mleng
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

My extended family of 13 (4 couples, 5 teenagers) took a 7-day Caribbean Cruise from HAL Nieuw Amsterdam in early Jan. My wife and I had just taken a 10 day cruise in December on Carnival Venezia. It’s very interesting to compare the 2 trips. HAL clientele definitely skewed older, whiter, quieter, and better behaved. NA being the smaller ship, it didn’t have as many “extracurricular” ...

Ok but not a WOW!

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

zak477
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We have done 61 cruises including this back to back on the Rotterdam. We have sailed on various cruise lines, it has been 10 years since we sailed on HAL. The Rotterdam is larger than what we like but booked a suite to enjoy the small Club Orange dining room. And the extras. Our good experiences: Embarkment total chaos but we were on board at 11:30a.m. The Lido was fine for lunch on ...

Good ship, but has gone a bit down

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

Bruna
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We took the two week cruise offered, which started December 30. We were at the start of this cruise a 3 star Mariner. We have always liked Holland America, and this has been our 11th cruise on this brand. That said, I have to say we have noticed small but important changes which because we are in a suite they are not that important, but if you do not have the perks of the suite, then you may have ...
