"I'm a very plain eater, meat and potatoes with no sauces, and one difference on this cruise was a plain grilled chicken breast or strip steak was not offered every night.First Cruise Since Pandemic Pre-Hotel And Embarkation: Because we've taken many cruises and are getting old, we had our travel agent book everything through HAL; air, hotel and cruise...."Read More

We had a bit of a problem dealing with the 48 hour COVID Test required to board ship. We followed the HAL recommendation and ordered tests online 20 days prion to cruise. On Saturday before leaving home we went online and took the test via zoom with eMeD company, who immediately sent a e-mail to each of us, which we printed out and hand carried to the ship to expedite boarding. The EMED process ...

This is the time to cruise while prices and capacity are low-it won't last! On day two of our cruise the mask mandate was lifted for all areas except the casino, theater and health center-YAY!!! With low capacity there was never an issue finding a lounger by the pool, a seat in a lounge or a table in the Lido Market. The menus in the Dining Room were great-lots of options every meal, food was all ...

Nice rooms, excellent food, super-clean, but mediocre entertainment.

Koningsdam 2022 - Reality Check We just returned from a seven-day cruise from San Diego to Mexico on the newer Koningsdam cruise ship. Accompanied by twenty-two highly experienced travel friends from San Diego, this was our last-minute plan for New Year’s Eve 2022. • Ship Cleanliness: Two previous Cruise Critic reviews state the ship smelled of cigarette smoke and urine...which is not the ...

Positive experiences: -Beautiful modern decor in public areas and staterooms. -We love the Retreat Cabanas, a great value at $300 for the week. -Speciality restaurants are very good. The burger and hot dog bar stocks vegan meat substitutes, which was a big pleasant surprise for us. The pizza place, Dutch Cafe (order the triple berry), and Canaletto (try the risotto) were especially ...

Lack of Service, Unlike Holland America of Old

After more than a ten year hiatus from a Holland America cruise, we decided to travel on a seven day cruise to Mexico. From the start of our first evening dinner in the dining room, there was a definite lack of service. Not only did we wait to get into the dining room, but after being seated, we often waited for another half an hour. One night we waited one hour for a drink with our dinner. ...

We received a great deal on a Christmas cruise r/t San Diego. We stayed in an obstructed balcony cabin and had no problems due to the obstruction. It is still a very nice view. Our beds were comfortable and there is a nice (though small) shower in the nice (though small) bathroom. This was a Christmas cruise, so perhaps that is why Holland served lobster on the final formal night. It is true ...

Great reminder why 7 days is not enough

We decided to do a quick trip down to San Diego and hop on the Koningsdam for a 7 day getaway. First off - we spent a couple days in San Diego before the cruise and had a great time. We would highly recommend Solunto in little Italy. It was so good on the first night that we came back for second night. The USS Midway did not disappoint - we spent hours there. The cruise itself only had ...

This was my second cruise on Holland America. The others have been on Princess. The Koningsdam is an attractive ship with a full promenade deck. Unlike many ships that outdo themselves with gaudiness, Koningsdam's decor is understated and easy to live with. I was on the ship for two weeks, the first week in an interior cabin, and the second week in a verandah cabin. When I cruise, I spend as ...

The ship was beautiful. Embarkation was the easiest we have ever experienced. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Ship was ultra clean.the food was the best we have ever experienced on any of the cruise lines. Music was top notch especially the band at BB Kings and the two performers in the piano bar. I felt safe during these pandemic times. The ports were Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto ...

I have sailed with HAL for the past sixteen years. Do realize thing change and not for better but this was dreadful! Service & provisions are bare minimum. HAL cut out a lot of things, small & large, that used to make it to stand out of all large cruise lines. Smell of cigarette smoke from the casino spread out through the ship. YUK! Cabin was barely cleaned: dust all around, dirty drapes, poorly ...
