First and last back to back cruise

Review for a Pacific Coastal Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We decided to take a back to back cruise since it was easier to hop on the ship in San Diego instead of flying to Vancouver. This happened to be our first cruise since covid started so were curious what changes that we would expect. Some of the changes were beneficial- using the navigator app is a big upgrade from the past daily paper agenda. Having the crew fill your plate cuts down people ...

Took a mini cruise from our home port San Diego to Vancouver. Positives: 1. Boarding was seamless and on the ship before noon. 2. Room was a veranda and very comfortable. Surprised there was a mini bathtub. Plenty of storage space though you need to use area under bed closest to the wall. Balcony was adequate. Mini fridge handy though space limited by for sale beverages. ...

While the itinerary of this cruise attracted me, and the shore excursions were pretty good, the food was poor, lukewarm and sometimes cold. I didn’t like the selections. I’m not into Dutch cuisine I guess. The service was extremely slow. Our room, a vista suite was very nice but there was no water pressure in the shower and while some may like the bathtub, it made things difficult for my husband ...

Tarnished cruise experience from "Bait and Switch" sales tactic. Excited to travel, as we purchased a unique to Eurodam, large room with panoramic view on 10th floor. See- OCEAN-VIEW SPA STATEROOMS CQ, Large Ocean-view Spa Room. These unique to Eurodam bow rooms are one-level above the captain's bridge and one-level below the spa/gym. Prior to flying to Fort Lauderdale, we received and printed our ...

Tarnished cruise experience! Holland America "Bait and Switch" sales tactic. We flew to Fort Lauderdale excited to cruise, as we purchased a unique room on the Eurodam, one of the four large spa rooms with panoramic captains view located above the bridge on 10th floor. See- room category CQ, Large Ocean-view Spa Room. These unique to Eurodam bow rooms are one-level above the captain's bridge and ...

I Was Disappointed

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Nieuw Statendam

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I sailed on the 4/7 transatlantic and the 4/21 Rotterdam to the Canary Islands and back cruises. There was good and bad but overall I was disappointed based on my expectations from reading reviews of Holland America. In no particular order: Embarkation was quick. I wasn't happy with a cabin "upgrade" (it wasn't) that I didn't ask for which put me on the wrong side of the ship for sunsets on ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

About Us: We are 60 and recently retired. This was our 28th cruise but only our 2nd on Holland America. We sailed with them to Alaska in 2008 and had a marvelous time. Pros: The ship was immaculate. Embarkation and debarkation were effortless. Cabin was ready at 12:30. Balcony cabin was clean, well designed and the shower was fantastic. Loved the chairs on the balcony. Anytime dining ...

This was our first cruise on HAL in 15 years...we usually go with Princess b/c we've sailed so often with them that we get all the perks. However, our 2 cruises with them since the pandemic weren't up to their previous standards and we really liked the itinerary for this one, so decided to try HAL again. It was a great decision. The ship itself was very well-run and it looked as though it had ...

While I'm hesitant to leave a negative review, I feel compelled to share my experience to prevent others from encountering similar disappointments. The cruise ship itself was Ok, but it seemed tailored for 70 years and older, resembling more of a retirement home atmosphere. Onr of the destination was a beautiful beache and inviting tiki bars, One striking instance was NO MUSIC at a tropical ...
