Frustrating communication and app issues, but good crew and entertainment

This was our first time on Holland America, though we've been on their sister line Princess multiple times. We'd heard that HA's food and entertainment were comparable quality, and the disembarkation port was convenient to us, so we decided to give HA a shot. Important note: we are in our early thirties and most of HA's guests are 60 and up. We were clearly the youngest couple on the ship (though ...

Pleasant California Coastal Cruise on a Beautiful Ship

We were skeptical about cruising on the Konigsdam. This was our twelfth cruise on Holland America and we tend to enjoy the smaller ships (e.g., Zaandam, Westerdam) more than Holland’s larger ships. (Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam). However, when the September cruise we had booked on the Zuiderdam was cancelled, we chose the same itinerary on the Konigsdam. We were pleasantly surprised with the ship ...

Took the week on the Koningsdam as a quick getaway for hubby & I- needed the sea air again ...Koningsdam is a beautiful ship- aft verandah cabin was roomy, great service by Robby & Arya. First night in MDR was a bit painful- most diners were challenged using their smart phones to scan the code to read the menus...the waitstaff were a bit frazzled as well- took over 2 hours for dinner without ...

Spotless ship, fantastic crew but too many Corporate problems plagued this cruise.

We chose back to back on the Konningsdam before all of the Zuiderdam early San Diego cruises were cancelled so we ended up being on the first Holland America voyage from San Diego. We expected challenges and Holland America did not dissappoint. Embarkation was the easiest we have ever had. Showed up at 11:30am to drop off luggage (our priority group A1 boarding was 1:pm due to crew ...

We are cruisers and were anxious to get back to the seas so we booked the first two itineraries being offered on the Koningsdam in October out of San Diego. The first week was the California coast and the second week was Mexico. This was our third cruise on the Koningsdam and our 10th and 11th HAL cruise. It was nice to know that all passengers had to be fully vaccinated and present a negative ...

We have done a number of cruises with Holland America and always enjoy them. embarkation was smooth. Cabin crew were very good as was food. One of the staff in Tamarind remembered up from a cruise in 2017 which surprised and pleased us. Did not care for a couple of entertainers but not a big issue. Cruise director who we had sailed with twice before (Nick) is great and hope to see him again. ...

It is our first Holland America cruise. We knew it is more for mature passengers but we didn't care as we just wanted to try the Mexico Riviera cruise and the timing was right. We embarked from Vancouver and our check-in was a breeze. Our oceanview stateroom with a large square window was very spacious but it was on deck one where most of their oceanview staterooms are located. The location of ...

We took this cruise with another couple, long-time friends and traveling companions, booking two balcony cabins with adjoining doors and balconies, and we had a very good time. We were nervous about the weather sailing south down the coast, but needn't have been, because the weather was gorgeous and the seas were very smooth. Boarding was wonderfully efficient - we arrived at the port a bit ...

Cheap attempt to upsell everything

We travelled as a party of 9 and had really looked forward to seeing Alaska with Holland America. Boy were we disappointed. Every show, talk, movie on the cruise was an attempt to sell something. Although we are used to cruises and expect this to happen, their selling attempt was too blatant and started to ruin our experience. A season on the history of diamonds led to a pushy sales effort ...

THE GOOD: Very efficient at embarking and disembarking passengers smoothly. Smiley, welcoming and attentive staff. Very clean and comfortable stateroom. Good entertainment (we watched the dancers). Several choices of bars and lounges, all with excellent service. Pretty good food. NOT SO GOOD: I couldn't help compare this ship with the one I sailed on 20 years ago. It was nothing like ...
