Ship is going to Dry Dock right after cruise

We had never been to Canada. We live in Florida so this longer cruise was perfect, we only had to fly one way. We love to travel on Holland America Lines, so the fact that Zuiderdam was due for an interior face lift ...

Very calm cruise with beautiful port visits

Wonderful itinerary- some of the best port visits seen after 7+ cruises. Boston, Bar Harbor, Charlottetown & Quebec were excellent - the latter two very picturesque. My criticism of Halifax was too many ships ...

Sept is too early for a fall colors and only one complaint

I would never recommend this cruise to see the foliage with a mid-Sept embarkation date and so I struggled with giving it an excellent rating since it was advertised as "10-day Colors of Canada & New England". But ...

Cruise impressions

We had not ever toured the NE coast of the US or the Maritime provinces, so this cruise leaving from NYC and calling in MA ME and NovasScotia and Prince Edward Island was a treat. Then sailing up the St Lawrence ...

Older ship badly in need of an overhaul and updating. The loading area was the start of problems. Poorly organized when we were one of the last groups to board. Aggressive staff trying to militarize getting boarding ...
