Too many problems in Zuiderdam

ITINERARY is the reason to pick Holland America Line. However, we both came home sneezing and coughing because of the airco in the cabin that is placed right over the bed and cannot be shut off. This was also the case two years ago when we also sailed with Zuiderdam but we figured this major problem would have been solved after the ship had been refurbished. But NO. We were certainly not the ...

The destination and also wanted to see how good the silver line sailing was, first day entering the cabin we were allocated the toilets were not properly cleaned. We had to buy water which is a bare minimum when you see the cost.Even in remote places in India and Peru hotels provide bottled water for health reasons.No here it cost $27 for 6 litres of water. The entertainment was so sad ...

Good Baltic itinerary

We chose this Baltic cruise because we liked the 10 day itinerary, with only 2 sea days and starting and ending in Copenhagen. We thought our balcony room was in excellent condition, with fresh paint, nice bedding and carpeting and a sofa bed in good condition. In the public areas everything had been redone with blue and teal furnishings, and it all looked nice. The ship is older with not a ...

Very disappointing meals

Sailing the Baltics was on my bucket list. The ports were what was expected. The meals onboard certainly was not. Have been on HAL before on an Alaska cruise 4 years ago. Ship was docked quite far away from the city center in Helsinki and Stockholm. There was a free transfer to town in Stockholm but none in Helsinki. Dining - We dined in the Main dining almost every night as we like to ...

We chose this cruise because of it's itinerary which included six European countries and possible visits to the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge and the races at Royal Ascot. It also included stops in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Bruges, Paris (LeHavre), Normandy, Gurnsey, Southampton, and two in Scotland. So overall this itinerary was excellent. We read several reviews that were disappointed in the ...

Chose cruise for the itinerary. British Isles followed by Baltic Cruise. Started in Copenhagen, a wonderful city and is well worth going back to for a longer stay. We were in a Signature Suite cabin. Had been updated. Excellent job, very comfortable and spacious. From what we heard from others, smaller cabins have not been done yet. (6/18). Cabin service was excellent. Always on spot ...

Baltic 10 day HAL on Zuiderdam

This Baltic Cruise was our first HAL experience. The ship was, for the most part, beautiful, well appointed and spacious. Our cabin, located forward deck 8 was spacious but definitely in need of a face lift. Walls were damaged in two areas and deck chairs worn with cigarette burn holes on one of them. This lack of attention to detail could be much improved. Overall, our dining experiences ...

Outdated ship, inconsistent service

Chose this cruise because of the ports the cruise was going to (Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia). The ship especially the cabin we had was very outdated. But, it was in good repair. Service and quality of staff varied from very good to poor. Many of the staff were hampered by their lack of English comprehension. They apparently got things wrong simply because of their lack of English ...

The destinations were the reason we booked this cruise. Food and staff were excellent. Entertainment was almost non existent. Supervision around the pool area was dismal. The size of our cabin K5034 was terrible. The pool area leaked when it was raining, there was a large crack in one of the front windows for the entire trip in the Crows Nest. The complete lack of supervision and mention of ...

Chose this cruise because to the location and places visited, also we had cruised with Holland America in 2011 and thought the cruise line was really value for money. This trip everything was just subtly less so. No major disappointments, but lots of minor ones. We found Holland America to be very money hungry, just overall less generous than in 2011. The door key cards failed again and again, our ...
