Laid back cruise up the St Lawerence Seaway

Review for Zaandam to Canada & New England

This cruise from Boston to Montreal was to see some new sights in Canada. The ports of Bar Harbor, Charlestown, Quebec were interesting. Sydney and Montreal not so much. The common areas of the ship appear to have been refurbished in the last few months, but the cabins are showing a lot of age with only one electric outlet per cabin and an in room TV that is essentially useless and too ...

Amazing 7 days of pampering on Holland Eurodam to Alaska from Seattle

We sailed in two veranda staterooms 4132 port and 4133 starboard on the September 10th. It was nice to be able to move to the side of the ship with the wildlife sightings or the view. My husband, 30ish daughter and I really enjoyed the excellent service. I am just going to cut to the chase with the bad and good. The not so good... The Lido is confusing where to be standing in line! ...

My husband and I (73-72), from Central Oregon just arrived home from a cruise on HAL Eurodam to Alaska 08/27-09/03/22. We have been on 3 Alaska cruises on HAL. We cruise to relax, so no partying here!! I am a retired RN and we have a Locksmith Business from our home, which keeps us extremely busy! We attended the naturalist talks and enjoyed them very much since we love whale watching. Our goal ...

Disappointing return to cruising

We picked this cruise due to the itinerary. We had travelled once before on HAL in 2010 so decided to give them another try. Embarkation in Trieste was quick when we got to the embarkation dock. It was a bit confusing as we had arrived in Trieste on the night before the cruise and the ship was docked in the city, however when we woke up the next morning the ship was gone. It had moved to a ...

Shockingly bad

A very bad experience that has made us think we might never cruise again. First, the positives: Staff, especially cabin stewards, were cheerful and helpful. Entertainment was good; 'Step One' dancers were excellent (but pure dance shows eventually wear thin) and the 'Lincoln Center Stage' musicians were first class, although sadly they have been given a poor venue that is open to the ...

Very poor service, horrible food, only chicken and bad spaguetti bolonese all very salty On dining room also the same. This is not the HAL standard I have experienced and made me to return. Crew without experience. Maintenance of vessel looks poor and with signs of rust. Safety???? Port calls very badly planned with long distances to walk from the vessel and no assistance or guidance. ...

We chose this cruise strictly for the itinerary & only 3 sea days. This cruise is the 24 Day Greek Odyssey & Mediterranean Empires from July 28th to August 21 2022. By way of background about us. We are in our early 70's. We have over 15 ocean cruises, 3 Riverboat trips, & several land tours. The towns & ports are our destination not the ship. Our expectation is simple... a clean room & ...

Review for Nieuw Amsterdam to Alaska

To be fair the Holland America Alaskan Cruise trip was very nice. However, the process and the people you had to deal with to start the cruise were prohibitively painful.. First of all we understand that Holland America is short staffed and their people are under trained. However, almost no one has authority or the desire to help others or to do the right thing. There is an old adage that I ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Did the typical research for our first cruise and “it” (whoever it is) that Holland America was a good line. Little did I understand that the average age of the passengers was probably 70. The cabin was one of 2 highlights of the so called cruise. It felt more like a ferry than a cruise. The other highlight was an excursion to the Hubbard Glacier (but be prepared to pay $200-1,000 per person for ...

In 2019 we booked an Alaskan cruise, that was rescheduled three times, until finally landing in July, 2022. We had an unbelievable deal for two extended balcony cabins, and it was a wonderful cruise. It was me and my husband (56 years old each), and two of my kids (28 & 24). This year, my brother and his wife (58) and their kids and significant others (all four are 28) jumped on the cruise in ...
