Good cruise ship if you are on a diet or plan to sleep all day
"I have cruised over 20 times and I chose this ship because it was smaller. I had booked in August, 2015 for my wife and I and she passed away shortly before the trip. I was told that I could not change the travel..."Read More

We had used Holland America about 14 years and decided to give it a try once again as a lot of our friends were going on this cruise and it was just a 1 day cruise Embarkation:- we had arrived at about 3 the embarkation process was very smooth and we were on this ship in less than 15 minutes. We did find it odd that held on to our passport and Green card and gave us a receipt for just the ...

I travel extensively and this was the most expensive and one of the worst trips I’ve ever taken. We upgraded to a suite and executive lounge. The lounge service was good but the food stale, pedestrian and you had to pay for liquor. Dining Room and Lido deck food lacked quality, taste and freshness. We ate burgers and hotdogs because they cooked to order. The only free beverage was lemonade and ...

The stateroom was perfect aside from the air not working. It was clean and roomy for the two of us. We had great shows to watch and cozy veranda. There was plenty of storage room, and we even had numerous USB ports. Standard plugin was limited, but we were prepared for that. There was no outlet near the bed. My husband has a cpap and they brought a power trip to help it reach. Our air didn’t work ...

we choose this cruse as an upgrade to the other lines available. paid more but got way less than expected. the rooms were much smaller than described the full size tub was anything but and the ADA equipment that I requested and was assured would be available, wasn't. of course we were not informed of this till we were outside the 12 mile boundary of the USA. the air conditioning system never ...

Worst cruise experience and terrible response from Holland America

We selected the Seattle to Alaska cruise for a special birthday. Four of us traveled together -- my husband and I and my parents. Holland America was not the cheapest, but had reasonably good reviews and a great route -- Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan, Victoria. We arrived late in the boarding window, so embarkation was easy. But, that's where the positive part of the experience ended. Our room was ...

I had high hopes, after cruising on the Holland America "Amsterdam" for a 2-week cruise to Alaska on June 19th thru July 3rd this year. THAT cruise was absolutely wonderful!!! Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Holland America is very consistent. Previously, I was on the 33-Day cruise in March this year, on the ms Maasdam. And, while there were many issues (it is a VERY old ship), I was ...

I wanted to have an experience of a life time. I did not however. The food was not worthy of a cruise, the entertainment was nill to say the least. the dining room was very dull and not a great place to be. The Lido deck was very uncomfortable, and not open long enough. There was no food for mid nite snacks. Who does an art auction on a cruise? The selection of food was in bad taste. The ship was ...

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, but the interior as you board doesn't give a feel of you being in the right place for a great holiday. The biggest disappointment come in the main dining ...

A problem with Jewelry purchased and customer relations won't reply

I purchased jewellery on board, and was given a certificate for 2 years, and it was dated 2015 instead of 2016. I sent it back to be corrected and have had no reply. When I got the jewelry valued in my country there was a huge gap and I had paid much more than would be reasonable. No one from that company will reply to my emails or letters. The jewellry on shore was much more affordable, ...

They made a very convincing advertisement for their cruise ship. They said it would be relaxing, but it was not. We wanted to relax, so I purchased their Couple's Massage worth $295.00. I knew it was overpriced, but then, I thought it would be indeed relaxing. I was really expecting a really good, relaxing massage , but it turned out to be irritating instead, for all I got was an oil ...
