This was our 4th HAL cruise and about our 40th cruise overall. We have been fortunate to have done of the worlds best cruises itineraries all over the world. We started cruising in our 40s and have done as many as two a year. For reference most of our cruises have been on Celebrity, but our more recent cruises on Azamara (4), Celebrity (2), Oceania (1) HAL (2) and Crystal (1).. This last cruise was the 18 day San Diego - Hawaii departing in January 2018. Overall this cruise was a major disappointment and joined the unenviable list of the other (1) cruise when i could not wait to exit the gangway and go home. Only our 3 week trip on the QEII (2006) was worse taken the year before it was decommissioned and Cunard's maintenance had stopped completely and the crew was ready to split. Overall headlines of my review - HAL manages to the dollar not to customer satisfaction. Every aspect of the cruise had been subject to clear value engineering to provide the minimum possible - While most visible areas (save one) were well maintained, cabin decks showed serious neglect and were shabby and under-maintained. - Staff were courteous but had minimal training and management - Chef clearly had no interest in how food tasted Ship The ship info claimed that it had been refit in 2016. Its clear that that is meant to mean "some areas". Main areas looked fairly fresh and some very fresh, but it was also easy to find ripped carpets on stairs, major dings, scrapes and significant and visible defacement in elevators. My sleeping deck was dingy, had marred up walls and stained carpets. Major odors were present and attendants continually spayed deodorizer. The ship was full and apparently with the additions of more cabins always felt crowded. The most obvious and in your face issue was the condition of the exterior deck chairs. Decrepit, stained, torn and broken..... any Hotel Manager or Ship Captain who saw this should have been ashamed. Ratty, torn, broken dirty. No self respecting Holiday Inn would have put these out. So dirty we had to cover them with towels. Disgusting. Cabin Our cabin 1007 was on the Main deck. The room was satisfactory. Bedding was of good quality and we slept well, room was quiet. Entertainment system featured many very good moves (free) and was well past expectation (a blessing on this cruise). Walls were dirty in some places and appeared to need heavy scrubbing. Water in sink would often run only hot (scalding) from the COLD water side? Metal baseboard trip near bed was missing and sharp edge cut my wife's foot. Dining Lido and main dining room food was 75% tasteless and ranged from horrible to good (on occasion). Lido lunch was repetitive and tasteless. Pizza was below the level of frozen from the Safeway. Highlights were fresh made omelettes were great and Dive in burgers were very good. Dining room served me a piece of prime (?) rib that was perhaps the worst piece of meat I had ever encountered. It was not cut-able and looked like something that should have become hamburger. Any food service professional should have deemed this best for the trash can. Highlight was dinner at the extra cost Italian restaurant where the food was very good to terrific. It is well worth the modest fee of $15 (discounted for loyalty classes). Really good and competitive with more expensive cruise lines. We did not try Pinnacle as the $35 surcharge was too high for my expectations of value. Mixed drinks were measured to the drop and I judged them as a poor value. Beers at about $7 ++ are over priced. We found that their supply of keg beer was never delivered at the onset of the cruise (hard to believe) so advertised draft been was unavailable. Likewise 20% of the wine choices in the mid-level wine package were unavailable even at the onset. Entertaiment Main stage was fine, but had many seats with impaired visibility (posts). Only some seats had a table if you buy a drink or bring one. Dance shows were very good quality and I applaud HAL for not doing yet another "salute to Broadway". Very enjoyable. Other entertainment was bad to good. Comedian doing simplistic and worn fat cruise ship jokes and grade school puns got me heading out the door. Another asking "have you ever seen someone make a dog out of balloon" left me also running for the door. Variety pianist was talented and entertaining as was the Sax player. Enrichment speaker was presenting a standard presentation and was not an expert. She simply learned a presentation. Highlights were the Lincoln Center stings which put on superb classical and popular concerts curated for HAL. This was terrific quality. however the room was uncomfortable and always crowded. Passengers sometimes came in an hour early and slept in the chairs to hold seats. Chairs were uncomfortable at best. It seemed at odds with all the minimal things HAL put forward on this ship to see something of such over the top quality. Kudos to HAL for getting something very, very right. Cruise Director was amateur level and added no value. Service HAL's people displayed good attitudes and were always friendly. Find a good waiter in the DR and you will get good service for a cruise at this price point, but quality varies greatly. Maitre D's were very good, learned our names and tried to get us to the waiter we preferred. Generally though service staff for meals had minimal skills and training. Dishes often not collected, had to beg for coffee and many times we would see them chatting with their peers and not working. On more than one occasion I was given morning OJ that had clearly set out for a very long time and was room temperature. What are they thinking? Ports and Shore excursions Hawaiian ports were routine. Major problems occurred at Lahaina on Maui where the re boarding of the ship via tender took nearly 1 1/2 hours. We heard via rumor that it was due to the local Harbor Master but the ship never explained nor did they take the opportunity to set any expectation before we boarded the tenders to go ashore that the re-boading was going to be problematic due to local procedures. HAL is not a premium or luxury line and had no expectations that it was. But the obvious cost cutting, deferred maintenance and fair service were below their advertised value proposition. This will be my last cruise on Holland America. You can get more for the money from Celebrity and probably several others. This is the last HAL for me. Read Less

I frequently cruise the San Diego to Mexican Riviera cruise when I find a good price. I have sailed only HAL the past few years. I was on this ship before and since my last trip they have gone into dry dock and added the Lincoln Center concert area, expanded the showroom, added more top deck outside veranda cabins, some cabanas and squeezed in more inside cabins by making them smaller. I was told that the ship was due to go into dry dock again in a couple of months and it needs it. Several areas are looking worn and in need of upgrade. Overall I enjoyed my cruise very much. I think the dining food is very good for a mid price ship. Service is not a ubiquitous as it has been in the past but it was OK. Embarcation and disembarkation procedures have been streamlined which is an improvement. Because I return to these ports I choose not to go ashore in Cabo and do my own thing walking in Mazatlan while taking the PV city bus (7 pesos) to the beach area and downtown. So, I cannot comment on the excursions. They do appear overpriced to me. I purchased a future cruise deposit which is a $100. cost but will pay my next cruise deposit not requiring any further expense until 90 days before when the cost is due in full. By doing that I also receive a $25. cruise credit on my account for that upcoming cruise. The other thing I do that might not be as well known is to purchase 100 shares of Carnival stock, which owns HAL as well as several other cruise lines. As a shareholder I can request a $100 credit on my account for each cruise I book and more $$ for longer cruises. Plus the stock pays a dividend as well. I was glad someone told me about this several years ago. Happy cruising everyone. Read Less

We chose this particular cruise for the perks offered (OBC, free gratuities). We cruised with friends and we've all been on the Mexico route many times. My major negative is the loss of the music on the ship, especially in the evening on the way to dinner A pianist on deck 3 doesn't reach those of us on deck 2. The Adagio Strings was lovely. We always enjoyed having music on the Crow's Next in the evening but now it's just a big meeting area. Still, you can't discount the views. The MDR was hit and miss as far as service went. There were major areas where people were being served promptly and others received tepid food, as we did one of our three times. We were not alone - other table groups were experiencing the same thing. We requested coffee with our dessert one night and dessert came but coffee never did and our waiter didn't check back. The food itself was very good. Perhaps they had a new group of waiters? Read Less

Embarkation was perhaps a clue of what was to come after we were checked in as we joined several hundred fellow cruisers to wait and wait and wait while a problem was resolved so we could actually board. We chose this for our annual December cruise to enjoy the voyage to and from the Hawaiian Island destinations. It was a much smaller ship that we have been traveling in the past few years but had some very nice entertaining and learning opportunities that compensated somewhat the frustrations of getting used to poor dining room organization, and indoor temperatures that were so very cold it required most passengers to wear coats throughout the days and evening onboard --- even the men were wearing jackets! From the first evening the dining room experience was chaos and remained so for 3 days. We had requested a table for two, and that seemed to be a real problem for some reason. We were shifted from one section to another, unlike all past cruises where we had the same waiter, same table, and our wine bottles were waiting for us when we arrived. Not so on the Oosterdam. The dining room manager was a very unpleasant man to work with. We nicknamed him Mr. Smiley face since he never was seen without a scowl. On the 3rd day we finally had a regular table and waiter. However, we felt very sorry for the wait staff as they were terribly overworked and understaffed for the number of people being served at the same seating. The top 3 things on the ship included: 1) An amazing string quartet that played 3-4 times most days. They packed the room for all performances and each member was outstanding! 2) The Microsoft Workshop was hosted by Frank Barcelona who presented 3-5 sessions daily about using Outlook and Cortana. He was outstanding, patient, and provided good solid support for computer and phone users to sync their instruments to the Outlook utilities. 3) The America's Test Kitchen presentations were great! The presentation room was well designed with overhead monitors for everyone to see the chef as she demonstrated wonderful recipes in a very entertaining way. The port stops were enjoyable, especially Lahaina and Kauai. Read Less

THE ITINERARY Our main objective for this trip was to visit Hawaii, and we would like to visit these interesting islands again—there’s more than you can possibly see in 5 days. EMBARKATION Embarkation at Vancouver was very smooth and very well co-ordinated. THE SHIP Comparisons between the Eurodam to her sister-ship (the Niew Amsterdam) are inevitable. As you might expect, she is very clean and tidy above decks and below. We found the ship layout very easy to navigate, and really appreciated the unobstructed Promenade Deck (3 times around = 1 mile). The back-lit navigation signs located by each elevator provided all necessary information and directions in a highly visible manner. Likewise, the menu screens outside the Lido and MDR were easy to read, much better than paper menus. TIP: many of the comments and observations we made after travelling on the Niew Amsterdam also apply to the Eurodam. For more information refer to our previous reviews. DÉCOR We found the décor on the Eurodam to be rather sombre compared to that of her sister-ship. There are some interesting cabinets-of-curiosities near the Main Dining Room (MDR) and next to B.B. King’s and a few good paintings of ships in the stairwells, but the overall feeling is (in our opinion) rather drab and dated. A lighter palette might help – there are large areas of grey and dark blue throughout the ship and the theatre seems to be especially dingy. TIP: Sightlines in the theatre are not good from the balcony seats on deck 3 (except for those seated in the middle section). Avoid the two boxes on the port and starboard sides: it is almost impossible to see the action on the stage, and you get blinded by the stage lights located in the wings. THE CREW The crew of the Eurodam always manage to be upbeat and are very pleasant company. They are busy, but always seem able to find a few minutes to share a joke or a comment, and their hard work makes life as pleasant as possible for the passengers, so we want them to know how much we appreciate their efforts. Our cabin stewards (Mantri and Hari) were excellent. They kept our cabin neat and tidy and were always cheerful and friendly. FOOD We found no reasons to complain about the food in any of the restaurants onboard the Eurodam. The Lido Market serves a range of interesting dishes from all over the world including Asia and Italy. It tends to get a bit hectic at times, especially when people are lining up to get served at the buffet stations. The Tamarind restaurant has the same Asian-Fusion menu offered on the Niew Amsterdam, but the dishes and presentations fell short of the standard we had experienced on the sister ship. We decided to try the Canaletto restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised at the innovative dishes presented. We believe the extra $15 was very well spent. We usually ate dinner in the Main Dining Room and never regretted any of our menu choices. The menu is always very inventive, although it does list some dishes that you might call standards every day for the less-adventurous diners (for example, salmon and strip-loin steak). For some reason seating assignments were chaotic during the first few evenings, and again on a Gala night. Passengers (including those who had made reservations) waited for ages to be assigned a table. We complained to the maitre d’ and the following night diners were issued pagers that would signal a table ready to receive them. This didn’t seem to improve matters because after being told we should expect a 20 minute wait, we gave up after 25 minutes and ate in the Lido market instead. TIP: Try varying your arrival time at the MDR, or make an early reservation. MARINERS’ LUNCH This is a special event for members of the HAL Mariners Club (aka, repeat customers). The food was excellent (set menu) and you get an opportunity to meet the Captain and the Cruise Director in person. Disappointingly, this time we did not receive a small Delft tile featuring the ship, as we have at other Mariner Lunches. ENTERTAINMENT BB King’s Blues Club featured a very capable band, who treated us to a wide range of R&B, Motown, and a few contemporary pieces, and this time the band included plenty of blues classics. This entertainment was a big attraction that helped us decide to take this HAL trip. In the Main Stage we were entertained by a magician (James Cielen) a juggler, a comedian and an accomplished flautist. Song and dance shows featured on two nights, and these were very good indeed – we appreciated them because they added to the variety. There were no guest aerialists/acrobatics on this cruise, perhaps because of the many sea days or the stage wasn’t built to accommodate them. The Indonesian crew members gave a very good cultural show one evening, but it started at 11:00 p.m., so the theatre was only about 25% full. Guest speakers Ginny Stibold and Lawrence Taglatino presented outstanding lectures on the biology and history of the Hawaiian Islands. On the outward leg of the voyage, a group of Hawaiian women presented workshops on a number of topics including making leis and hula dancing, while a musician taught volunteers how to play a ukulele. FELLOW PASSENGERS A much older demographic (our opinion) than those we met on other HAL voyages. The number of passengers using walking frames, wheelchairs, scooters, or sticks was incredible, and we wondered how the crew would cope during a real emergency in the event of needing to evacuate the ship. Waiters in the MDR had to valet-park the scooters! No wonder many reviewers refer to it as a floating retirement home. We met plenty of Canadians, some Americans, and a few Australians. A FEW PROBLEMS TIP: If you have any problems or concerns, raise them with appropriate people (usually the Front Desk) immediately. They are very responsive, and take all complaints seriously. SMOKING Smokers are no longer allowed to poison themselves (and others) in the casino nor on their balconies. Smoking is now restricted to on the starboard side of the Lido deck aft, allowing most of us to avoid the deadly cancer fumes. However, there will always be some determined puffers who think the rules do not apply to them. For example: we detected the smell of smoke in the corridor outside our cabin on a several days and reported this to the Front Desk. Guest Services came to our cabin, agreed that the smell was noticeable and promised to investigate. The problem occurred a few more times, and Guest Services eventually discovered the source (a balcony suite opposite ours). The problem did not recur. Full marks to HAL for eliminating this menace. GENERAL TIPS Bring jackets or wraps as the temperatures vary widely in different public areas around the ship. B.B. King’s is predictably chilly. If you need to use the mid-ship elevators, the glass ones on either side of the ship are much faster than the regular ones in the middle of the ship. PORT REVIEWS We went ashore at every port of call, and took four excursions from the ship. Hilo—Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden. A do-it-yourself walking tour of a lush, tropical garden that was created in a valley reclaimed from a previous garbage dump. TIPS: Steep hills and a vertiginous boardwalk to descend into the valley. Golf carts run continuously up and down the narrow path (there are one or two passing places). You may need some DEET-based insecticide or some drinking water (both available at the on-site shop). Be smart and bring your own from the ship. Honolulu—Blue Hawaiian helicopter flight The flight lasts 50 minutes, and cameras record you in cockpit and the outside scenes. We flew over Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and Pearl Harbour. Weighing in, but they keep it secret—6 persons per copter pilot plus 2 passengers in front, 4 behind. Only the two outer seats offer decent photo-opportunities. You will be buckled into the harness by company staff: they are not trying to grope you, so don’t be offended. TIPS: If flying over active volcanos and flowing lava is on your bucket list, book the helicopter trip in Hilo as soon as you get onboard the ship—it sells-out very quickly! We were too late, so we had to sign-up for this trip instead. Dark clothing is preferred because light colours reflect off the canopy and spoil any photos you might take. Wear a dark shirt if you have it, but if you don’t, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters will lend you a dark T-shirt. You can’t bring anything with you except a camera; excess items must be checked before you board the helicopter. Lahaina—Atlantis submarine trip Passengers sit back-to-back along central seats, each seat has an individual porthole. The sub dives to a depth of 124 feet taking you over coral beds and the wreck of sailing ship called the Carthagininan. This vessel was deliberately sunk as artificial reef. We saw a range of different fish including White-tip Sharks, Barracuda, Puffer Fish, Porcupine Fish, Moray Eels, Surgeon Fish, etc. TIP: If you think you might be even slightly claustrophobic, give this trip a miss. After the crew closed the hatch, one female passenger panicked and had to leave the vessel. Nawiliwili—National Tropical Botanical Gardens. A guided tour of two gardens (Allerton and McBryde Gardens) led by a very knowledgeable guide. We also stopped for a brief visit to the Spouting Horn volcanic lava tube. TIP: This is a chance to visit some of the locations used for filming Jurassic Park and for birders to see a rare Hawaiian Gallinule. This tour involves step climbing and negotiating muddy paths so if you have mobility issues, consider carefully before you sign up for it. A FEW GRIPES! Yes, we have a few! We sincerely hope HAL is listening: Eurodam’s library is very poorly stocked. No pins as prizes for winning games—winners receive a bottle of sparkling wine instead! No Trip Log at the end of the voyage to keep as a record of the trip, describing distance travelled, ports of call, etc.! This was particularly disappointing for us. DISEMBARKATION Very smooth and fast because HAL uses a system of numbers and colour-codes to direct disembarking passengers off the ship, but there was a long wait to load the buses to the airport, with only one bus being loaded at a time. WOULD WE SAIL ON THE EURODAM AGAIN? Possibly, it really depends on the itinerary and we will always be open to trying different HAL ships. While we enjoyed our trip, the ship fell short of expectations because of the missing items we had anticipated after previous HAL trips. Read Less

16 night cruise from Van to Hawaii and back....No flying which is the way we like it! This was a very enjoyable cruise.Lots to do and also lots of time to relax on your own. I took in the windows 10 digital workshop classes which were good ( there's always something to learn) Thanks Scott. . Mainstage shows were pretty good..dancers and singers top notch..enjoyed Dan St paul the comedian...Vivian Guzman, Frances Dilorinzo,Brett Cave.Hawaii night was very good..Billboard on board (pianos)John & Jason? ) was well received..very enjoyable but crowded.. Lincoln center stage was wonderful. America test kitchen was very interesting and well done.Kathleen did an awesome job! BB King Blues,very talented but was not really our thing...crowds were hit and miss.Would prefer 50s-60s music and dance . Happy hour at 4pm..otherwise drinks can be expensive. We enjoyed the Hawaiian Ukulele music and the dancers at 5pm on our way to the Islands. Would recommend the New York pizza place and the Dive- in was good ( I tried the sauerkraut hot dog and the chicken burger) Food was good, generally small portions except the schnitzel which was very good! Prime rib was excellent as was surf and turf. Dining went pretty well with open dining and the reservation team was very accommodating. Staff was excellent...always cheery and helpful.Getting the daily itinerary on our ipad was great. All day info at your fingertips! Appreciated Catholic mass onboard which is missing on other cruise lines.My wife enjoyed the tea time at 3pm ( getting to visit and chat with other ladies) We would highly recommend this cruise!

We wanted a cruise that left on our anniversary, bonus that it left from our home city & returned to same. Plus who can turn down a trip to Hawaii. The service was great, our room stewards were awesome. However, the food was atrocious. 90% of the time, I left most of my meal on the plate. The meat was always over-cooked & dried out. (Except for the Tamarind, the steak there was cooked to perfection.) They seriously need some new cooks, new menus. And the in-room dining menu needs far more options. My biggest peeve with them was that we paid for our cruise by the due date, and then the price dropped by nearly $3000. No offer of a refund from HAL. They did give us about 1/3 in ship board credits and we ended up with a larger suite only because I pestered them about it. I'm wondering how many other guests over paid and didn't know that they had. All in all, I've cruised twice with HAL and was less then impressed both times. It's back to Celebrity Cruises for us.

Hawaii was nice but the Eurodam itself was the true destination. The ship is beautiful. The food is great. The specialty restaurants are outstanding. The variety and quality of musical venues on Music Walk is wonderful with something for everyone. The dual piano players with Billboard Onboard was my personal favorite. The crew was exceptional from John Scott the captain who entertained us every day with the origin of nautical based expressions such as between the devil and the deep blue sea, Nick the delightful Cruise Director, and all the way down the chain of command. The entire crew was relaxed and happy and eager to help. I booked the last Alaska cruise of the season and stayed on the Eurodam through Hawaii for a total of 24 days. Anyone who doesn't like to leave home for a 7 day cruise should consider combining these two destinations as a "collector's voyage" some year. Read Less

We chose this because it ended in Honolulu, our home. We sailed from Vancouver and stayed at the Pan Pacific which was right on the pier! I highly suggest that hotel if you are sailing from Vancouver. Bags went from hotel room to stateroom!!! We were on the Oosterdam last October and November in the Mediterranean and many of the employees were on this cruise so it was like home! They remembered us and what we liked! They will also be on in March and April when we do the other part of this itinerary beginning in Sydney and ending in Honolulu. The ship is definitely worn..."tired" is a better word. We were told it was to be dry docked soon but apparently not for another year plus. We were on the Noordam in 2014 and it was old then and has not been upgraded that we could see. We enjoyed the famous daily Happy Hours, buy one get one for $2...it used to be one dollar...but the servings were small! We normally get a bottle of champagne from the company, nothing this trip! We really felt unappreciated this time from the company. My main complaint was the On Deck For A Cause. I did it last October and it was wonderful. This year we all met before the walk and were offered "refreshments and fellowship" after the walk. After two rounds on the deck (less than a mile) most people had dropped out. I ran and walked and when I finished 3+ miles (it was a 5K) I went in and found everything cleaned up and the place empty! I had to go to a bar downstairs to get a drink of water. Others who finished after me were also surprised. We had been abandoned and only an hour out! What a slap in the face for those of us who did the entre walk! Again, it seemed as tho we were very unappreciated by the higher ups! Read Less

Been on this cruise three times before. Great if you like days at sea, as we do. The entire staff of the Zaandam, in every department, provided excellent service, with a few monitor hiccups during the cruise. We are confused by a couple of negative reviews of the short repositioning cruise just prior to ours - the one from San Diego to Vancouver. We heard rumours about up coming changes to the Zaandam during its next refit - such as the elimination of a library and changes to the Crow's Nest that we are concerned about, but change is constant in our current world, and we will wait to see if these rumours are true and, most importantly, if we feel they are positive ones or not. Handrie, or dining room steward, was excellent in his attention to our needs during our entire cruise, and our several visits to the Pinnacle Grill reconfirmed what we had experienced on our three Hawaii previous cruises on the Zaandam - the steaks are outstanding. We have never experienced better in our business travels around the world. Great to experience the same captain, Christopher Turner, as last year! Read Less
