My husband and I did the Double Denali with 7 day cruise down the inner passage. What a mistake that was!! I had one day on-board the Noordam before I got ill. One day to enjoy the ship - that's all. I had one day before I fell dreadfully ill with a virulent flu virus which I contracted while staying in the Holland America chalet in Denali a few days before (together with up to 90% of other ...

We chose this cruise as a way to get back from Alaska to Vancouver. We were hoping for a smaller, less crowded, low-key cruise. What we got was a filthy ship, illness everywhere, change in itinerary, the worst customer service I've every experienced, really lame entertainment - I mean the worst!, and did I mention how dirty everything was? The good - our room was great. We had a verandah suite ...

My wife and I are 3 Star Mariners on Holland America and have taken many Holland American cruises since 1978. They have always been great, memorable cruises. My wife had been wanting to visit Alaska and Denali. This seemed to be the perfect cruise. We left the Vancouver Port on Sunday,and cruised the inner passage all day Monday arriving in Ketchikan the following day. Ketchikan was a quaint ...

My rating is really based on Holland America Line in general.. This review of Noordam just confirms past experiences. My choice of HAL was based on convenience rather than comfort. All onboard services have degraded to poor. The focus of HAL is generating onboard revenue, not guest quality. Meals in Vista dining room are poorly prepared, I expect due to reduced meal budgets from corporate. ...

But it went downhill from there. the dinning room was 1 1/2 hours to eat, the service just to get water refills was next to impossible, nobody liked the lobster it was very tough, and waited 3 days for a ashtray on our verandah, as far as the band, they were constantly being pulled for show night, we always enjoyed dancing before and we now have BB king show, so loud we couldn't stay. i found the ...

This Holland America line Alaska cruise on the Noordham was sold to us as an add-on to the Rocky Mountaineer experience. Our cabin was an upgrade from the standard cabin Rocky Mountaineer usually books as an add-on. It was spacious with a large bed, the washroom had a separate bath and shower and the outside verandah had a table and chairs. Now for the bad news. During our conversations with ...

I am so sorry to give this review to anyone who has already paid their hard earned money to go on this cruise. I have sailed with Holland America in the past and truly enjoyed my trip. My husband and I are much younger (about 30 years) than the average HAL cruiser and we enjoyed that. We were looking for a chill cruise without the usual drunks. We did get a more tame crowd which was good, but ...

We were so looking forward to sailing on the Holland America Line after watching all there TV ads. It started badly with taking 4 hours to board, even though we were there 7 hours early. Our balcony cabin had been triple booked and we kept getting other people's luggage in our room. The balcony adjoining door banged all night and when we reported it , we just got a oh ok , from reception. The ship ...
