Paid for services not provided. The whole week the food was cold 95% of the time, fries cold like they just came out of the fridge, no options for food allergies or representatives did not understand, advertised room service but no one answered. I got sick the first day as food representative told me food was gluten free and turns out it was not. Days on port were cut hours and excursions ...

Health: Two old ladies went on this cruise and had a great vacation! We are seniors and my friend's husband attended a family wedding on the other side of the country while we sailed the seas. We were concerned about CoVid but decided to trust HAL's commitment to health. We were not disappointed. We wore our masks throughout the cruise, everywhere, except when eating, drinking or in our ...

Pinnacle Suite Beware!

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this short cruise to discover if we liked the Pinnacle Suite before we booked a longer voyage. While spacious and well laid out, the hot tub and music system were broken and unusable. Our friends booked other staterooms and we planned on using the Pinnacle suite for hosting. It's a shame when paying a premium for accommodation that such key amenities are not functional. The staff ...

Holland America Lines declining quality & mediocre standards

3 star Mariners, cruised HAL 137 nights, over a decade of loyalty towards HAL. Very disappointed with it’s treatments to loyal guests. Decreased in benefits, increased in “nickel and dime” up charges, gratuity, etc. (Please see photos enclosed). Menu selections mediocre (same old, same old). Cruised 3 times in 2022, same menu rotation, same entertainment line ups. HAL decreases menu ...

Waited 2 years for return of 25% of monies taken by HAL on the same cruise that was cancelled before covid. Embarkation was hectic as 3 ships were in port at San Diego, however the ship was very clean and the crew were excellent our balcony cabin was nice and stewards were very friendly. We had anytime dining later in the evenings an had nice tables at the rear window the food was very good ...

We had actually booked a HAL Caribbean cruise in Feb, which we had to cancel, and we switched to the Classic California coast, as we live fairly close to San Diego, and we could drive to the port. This was our first HAL cruise, we weren't certain what to expect, but we wanted to try the line. I was attracted by the Music Walk concept, since I play instruments and love music. Our expectations ...

e had boarding in San Diego. I did all the pre boarding requirements on the HAL website and on VeriFLY. Our boarding pass said that a REAL ID-compliant driver's license was ok BUT the dock personnel did not seem to know that, we got shuffled over to another area and were finally told it was ok and we were allowed onboard. The Koningsdam is a nice ship and seemed to be very clean. We got to our ...

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 ...

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 ...
