We're first time cruisers & went with my parents for a 3 generations cruise(6 adults + 3 teens). There were not many kids on the ship, but that was ok with us. The kids utilized the HAL kids clubs and enjoyed their time away from the ... Read more

We chose this cruise to celebrate a special occasion. We chose the Seattle-Juneau-Glacier Bay-Sitka-Ketchikan-Victoria route on the Eurodam, and booked a verandah stateroom. The room was very nice. Ship cabins are always small, but ... Read more

This was the best cruise I've been on. The Eurodam is a beautiful ship with excellent service, and wonderful employees. We left out of Seattle and that was the simplest embarkation/disembarkation I've ever experienced. We were on and off ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise based on itinerary, level of expected service and perceived value. We took a limo from Sea-tac to the ship. Since we arrived so early, had the driver take us around the town on the way to the pier. We ... Read more

Our travel agent recommended this itinerary as it was our first cruise to Alaska. The scenery is awesome. Would not recommend for children, but was a relaxing cruise for adults. Enjoyed the food from the dining room and the in room ... Read more

Our very first cruise back in August 2003 was on Holland America's Amsterdam and we've been hooked on cruising ever since. Since then, we've taken 21 more cruises on a variety of different lines with Princess being the one we've taken most ... Read more

First off to be fair, this was our 5th cruise. Previously we had been on Carnival (the parent company of Holland America) twice (Bahamas, Jamaica-Grand Cayman-Mexico), Royal Caribbean once (Mexican Rivera), and Norwegian (Hawaii). We were ... Read more

First Alaskan trip. It was a good experience. Enjoyed the trip with family. Food is great on Lido. Main Dining room used only for dinner and choices were ok. Still preferred Lido. Getting a seat there is a bit difficult. Places and ... Read more

The staff were always friendly and helpful when we had some minor issues with our cabin. They were very accommodating. The air flow was low and the room was too warm for us but the maintenance staff finally fixed the problem by our last ... Read more

We sailed on the Eurodam up the inside passage to Glacier Bay in Alaska, stopping in Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka, and Victoria. The embarkation and disembarkation processes were seamless and well organized. We stayed in cabin 6076 which is ... Read more

I have always wanted to go to Alaska and I considered several lines. To this point I had done 3 cruises with 3 lines so I was open to any line. I'm very pleased with my choice. I think the ship is a good size and it is lovely. On ... Read more

This was our first time sailing Holland America. We found the crew on the Amsterdam willingness to meet and exceed our expectations was a true differentiator. They were first rate in every way and were a leg up compared to the other lines ... Read more

This review will be lengthy..hoping to assist future cruisers (as I was helped). Did much research before choosing Land Explorer. My major goal was to SEE Alaska. This two week itinerary logged over 3000 miles and had 9 ports. I looked ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had 9 ports and awesome opportunities to view glaciers. Also, we were able to fly in and out of Seattle. We flew in a day early to spend time in downtown Seattle. We used Seattle Shuttle to provide ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I live on the central coast of California and it's easy to get to Seattle, and who doesn't want to see Alaska! I've cruised with Holland America before, so I felt confident that the ship would be lovely and the ... Read more

We were on this sailing, and stayed in a Neptune Suite. The Neptune Lounge was a delight. Our two rotating attendants were absolutely amazing. There is nothing they would not do for you. One thing that was odd. During our stop in Juneau, ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we had never been to Alaska before and my husband had never been on a cruise. After careful research we decided on the Amsterdam as it is a smaller ship and can maneuver some of the tight canals and get closer ... Read more

My husband contacted our cruise specialist, and they set the whole thing up. Dennis had previously researched the HAL website, and knew what he wanted before booking. We had an aft-Neptune suite. Em and disembarkation were as expected. ... Read more

There are several things to like about the Oosterdam - the decor is fantastic, I really enjoyed the co-branding with America's Test Kitchen. Their on-board enterainment system (free) had a better collection of movies that I have on with ... Read more

First off, embarkation and disembarkation was very easy and uncomplicated. It went very smoothly. There was a longshoreman to take take your bags prior to setting in foot in terminal. The other cruise line that takes out of Pier 91, has ... Read more

We chose this cruise as part of a group. The itinerary was very nice and we ended up with outstanding weather. Aside from trying to remember whether we were going forward or aft, the ship was nice - the decor was not too over the top. ... Read more

This is my first cruise with HAL, heard some much on their food and services that tempted me to book this cruise. However, this cruise turned out to be a total disappointing experience. The Eurodam, for her age, outward looking good, ... Read more

Ship was smaller than the usual but I knew that beforehand. Also a little older but still we were happy with it. We had a balcony cabin on deck 10, great views from it, but to walk across the deck from one end to another you had to go ... Read more

Cabin was a VB balcony near aft elevators. Great location! Adequate size although interior walkway between closets and bathroom very narrow. Good storage for suitcases under the bed. Enough hangers for what we needed. Metal wall so magnets ... Read more
