Fjords of Norway

Outstanding service, great food, friendly crew, wonderful port selection. The only glitch during the cruise was that at one port everyone was trying to get off the ship at the same time. We were in a long line ...

We chose a month-long cruise that focused on the Norwegian fjords and the Baltic -- it was a combination itinerary that satisfied my desire to cruise the fjords and my husband's to visit the ports of the Baltic. It ...

Into the Midnight Sun and Baltic Jewels was a near perfect cruise vacation.

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary, the midnight sun and the baltics (Two cruises were combined into one). We were not disappointed. Scotland and Norway (the first half of our cruise) were natural ...

One of the Best Cruises Ever

One of the best cruises we have ever been on. Comparable to Regent Seven Seas and Seabourn for quality of ship, food and staff. With 930 passengers, it never felt crowded (except in the theater one evening). The ...

Holland America is a good choice for seasoned cruisers.

As Ryndam is going out of service, I will confine my comments to generalisations which could apply across the line. Boarding and reception at Harwich excellent: pity they will not be using the port any more. ...

This is an old ship and looks it. There is a desperate need for repairs, paint, new carpeting, new furniture and various other fittings. The ship was commissioned in 1994. I found out that Ryndam will be transferred ...
