I loved loved loved this cruise. I have been on many cruises and have sailed on most of the mainstream cruise lines – Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess, Carnival, Costa, MSC, Celebrity, and other cruise lines as well. The Koningsdam was really a surprise, I have sailed on Holland America Lines (HAL) before and I expected this ship to be similar to the other two HAL ships I previously traveled ...

We are veteran cruisers, especially recently with this being my fifth cruise in the last year. This is our fourth(?) HAL cruise. For the first time in 25 years we cruised with old friends who were also veteran cruisers. There was so much to like about this ship and we had a great time, as did our friends. Wife and I are 52 and 49. EMBARKATION was outstanding. We arrived around 10:50 and there ...

My husband and I are in our mid-30's/early 40's. During the holiday season, we always take a cruise. For the past four years, we've taken NCL cruises. This year, we decided to take a cruise on the Koningsdam. We already had 3 HAL cruises under our belts, but those were all out of the Pacific Northwest. We were unsure about a HAL cruise in the Caribbean because the ports are less of a feature than ...

Waterslides, rock climbing and racetrack fans go elsewhere.

I chose this Holland America cruise to avoid the shopping mall atmosphere on bigger ships where passengers need to be constantly entertained. This is a traditional sailing type atmosphere not an amusement park, there are plenty of mega ships that fit that profile. If you prefer a relaxing schedule enjoying sunsets on deck rather than rock climbing then Holland America is for you. Sometimes less ...

The Koningsdam is a very nice modern design but for me too big. Where is the real teakwood? I miss the contact with the management which you do have on the smaller HAL ships.The crew is fantastic although in the dinerroom the service is not organised. Room service fantastic. The cabin attandents were, as always, super. The average age of the passangers was 71,9 yrs with lot of scoot mobiles. In ...

11-Southern Caribbean cruise in December of 2019. Great itinerary of islands that were not the typical voyage. Martinique, Antigua and Barbuda are highlights! Ship is extremely well maintained - crew is extremely friendly. Grand Dutch Café and Club Orange dining room are great! Cannot say enough about the staff. Everyone from maintenance crew to housekeeping staff to Neptune Lounge crew to the ...

This was my very first cruise. Embarkation in Fort Lauderdale took much longer than I expected. Other passengers in line commented that it was taking longer than they had experienced before. Disembarkation was pretty smooth. But once we were on board, it was smooth sailing! I LOVED this ship and this cruise! Entertainment: The newly added Rolling Stone Rock Room was hands down my ...

We sailed the HAL Koningsdam on 12/28/18 for 7 nights on the Eastern Caribbean cruise and it was so refreshing, relaxing and enjoyable. We generally sail with Celebrity (have been on 7 Celebrity cruises in the last 3 years). We were on a wait list for the Celebrity Eclipse and Reflection but I wasn't feeling the possibility of getting on either of these ships very good so we branched out and ...

Holiday Cruise. The entertainment has its ups and downs. The comedian was very entertaining, and the dance/laser show was spectacular. However, the musicians in the lounges were mediocre at best, and poor in several painful instances. The blues band has a talented female singer...too bad she was overpowered by a bass player that was so loud, the lead guitar could hardly be heard. The dueling ...

This started poorly with the embarkation process. Very unorganized and SLOW. once onboard, no music (Usually a calypso band playing on other cruise lines), no welcome drink. To top it off, we didn’t leave Port for four hours waiting for the meat delivery! Holland did nothing to compensate for this late departure. Most lines will serve drinks or snacks or SOMETHING to ease the pain of ...
