We chose this cruise because it was 14 days. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We were surprised by the lack of electrical outlets in our cabin. There was one outlet for the refrigerator, curling iron, electric toothbrush, phone, etc. We were able to use a ship multi plug, but it shouldn't have been necessary. We did enjoy the larger tub/shower combination. The entertainment was very good. The ship singers and dancers were excellent. Our waiter and assistant were very caring, but they had an area which included 24 passengers. Way too many for a single team. We enjoyed Endicott Arm and Dawes glacier. We had not seen them before. I was disappointed in the ship atrium, it did not have the open spacious feeling of most ship atriums. We enjoyed the in room DVD and the ability to borrow films to enjoy in our room. I also loved the Americas Test Kitchen demos. Read Less

Boarding and disembarkation were very smooth, and I especially loved the complimentary, hands free luggage check-in on the return trip home. After leaving my luggage outside our cabin, I didn't see it again until it arrived at my final destination. The Polynesian staff was as friendly as could be. I loved all the ports we stopped at, except for Kodiak, for which I would have to recommend you either stay on the ship, or take an excursion which gets you out of that ugly town the ship docks at. Loved the Crow's Nest for it's great view and happy hour, and met a lot of very nice people both there, in the dining areas, and on excursions. The type of people on this 2 week cruise were mostly over 60, and lots of retired people who do 3+ cruises a year. Not the best cruise to bring your kids on for diverse entertainment as there seemed to be very few children onboard. This was my third cruise to Alaska, and I probably would not have chosen to do a third cruise, but this one went to 3 places we haven't been to before, and I liked the 2 weeks, instead of the usual 1 week. Service on the ship was excellent and I have no complaints about the food, except that the coffee was always way too strong. Our balcony cabin was in a perfect location on deck 6. The ship is old, but has a very nice floor design and is kept very clean. I did see quite a few rust spots which would drive me crazy if she were my ship, but she is scheduled for some major dry dock work in March'2018. I loved the fact that there were little more than 1000 passengers on this ship, which means you get to see many of the people you meet over and over again which enhances the social experience and develops friendships.

Our intent on this trip was to have a relaxing time on board ship while seeing Alaska. We had been told that Holland America is a notch above the competition, but found that it didn't come close to other cruise lines. We actually had a horrible experience. There was a major problem with the heating and cooling unit in our cabin. They tried 3 times to adjust the temperature, but our room remained hot, making sleep difficult. We would wake up sweating. We asked for a fan, but they said none were available. We repeatedly asked that they fix it but the gal at the desk continued to blow us off, saying they were already in there several times to fix it, as if it was our problem. Finally, with 2 nights left we were both sick, and I insisted we have a fan. Finally our dear housekeeper brought us one which was taken out of an office. Two and a half weeks later we are still sick with a respiratory virus. Also, my husband uses a Cpap machine which has a filter. After 2 weeks on the ship the filter was black. At home he changes it once a month and it's always light gray. That says something about the ventilator. We will never go on Holland America again. Our once in a lifetime trip to Alaska was ruined. We always look forward to the food on a cruise, but we found the dining room meals to be very salty and underwhelming. However, a need for a medically necessary gluten free diet was met by the very conscientious staff. The staff in the dining areas were wonderful. Most of the entertainment we saw was excellent, but there were a couple performers who were crude and disrespectful. If I was grading this cruise experience I would have to give it an F. The positive features couldn't compensate for our horrible cabin experience and our lengthy illness from it. Read Less

Holland America Alaskan Explorer August 14 - 28, 2017 We have always wanted to do the lesser known Alaskan ports so this cruise itinerary was perfect for us. We have been on 3 previous Alaska cruises that did the regular Ketchican, Juneau, Skagway itinerary. We had been on the Amsterdam before. We really like it. Not too big and not too small. It is well maintained in spite of it's age. We had a cabin on the lower promenade deck. These cabins have the walking deck in front of your window. During the day people can not see inside your cabin. At night, however, you need to make sure your curtains are closed as anyone walking by can see inside clearly. During our visits to the glaciers people would crowd onto the deck so seeing out the window was difficult. We did really like the location of our cabin. It was such a tiny cabin. The two of us couldn't fit in the hallway and dress at the same time. The bed took up the whole room. Our weather for this cruise was truly yucky. I expect rain in Ketichican and Juneau, however, it was rainy in nearly every port. It was getting down right depressing. It was so socked in with low clouds we couldn't even see any Alaskan mountains. Homer was overcast but no rain. Victoria was a picture perfect day, not a cloud in the sky. Everyplace else it rained. However, we packed our raincoats and umbrellas and went out and explored anyway. Sitting outside on this cruise was impossible as it was just too cold. We were able to sit out on the promenade deck in Seattle and Victoria. These were the only days that were warm enough. We booked this cruise short notice. We were on a camping trip along the Oregon coast and thought we would take this cruise since it was such a good price and we were in the vicinity. Since we were on a camping trip we had no formal wear. We were not able to eat in the dining room because of this. We were very happy eating in the buffet every day. The food was wonderful. We loved being able to have lobster in the buffet on lobster night. Entertainment was very good. The production shows were great. Other nights we had a juggler a comedian and a magician who I enjoyed. I didn't really enjoy the pianist, violinist and John Denver entertainers. They were very talented just not my cup of tea. I was very disappointed to find that several things were cancelled due to the new Oprah collaboration. No more crafts, no more dancing with the stars, no more ball room dancing lessons. We only had two game shows on this cruise. Liar Liar and Majority rules. We had no special speakers. I attended the art auctions just for something to do. I was so bored on this cruise. I read 5 books. My husband read 9. There was just not enough to do during the day. It is my opinion they need to stop this new Oprah collaboration as it takes away from the Holland America product. We purchased an internet plan of 1000 minutes for $250. Yes it is expensive but we are addicted to internet. We did no ship excursions. We couldn't afford any. They were extremely over priced. We booked tours independently in port. In Ketichcan we docked right in town. We walked around a bit and then went to the lumberjack show. This show was so much fun. It was nice because the seating area was covered and heated. In Juneau we just walked around town and stopped for a drink at a restaurant and watched the float planes come and go. It was pouring rain but we still had fun. Icy straight point was a bust for us. We took a $5 shuttle into town to find everything was closed. Not that there was anything in that town to see or do. The port area was just okay with a store, restaurant and nature trail. Instead of doing Tracy arm we did Endecot arm. This was a wonderful decision the captain made. We were able to go to the very end of the arm and see the Dawes Glacier. We did Tracy arm on previous cruises and were never able to make it to the Glacier so this change in the itinerary was very welcome. We had two boring days at sea to get to Anchorage. In Anchorage there was a free shuttle to get into town. In town we were able to book a tour of the area for only $20 per person. It was a great tour. We then walked around town and shopped a bit before taking the free shuttle back to the ship. Homer was a great day. We booked a hop on hop off bus tour for $15 per person. Homer is pretty big and it offered several stops. One stop was the beach. The hop on hop off was on a school bus. I had not been on a school bus for 30 years. I had a hard time getting up the steps and the seats were small and hard, however, we endured. Kodiak wasn't fun. We took a free shuttle into town but we found no tours to book and nothing to do. Not even any soveniar shops. We walked around the port area and looked at the different boats but that was it. We had another day at sea and arrived at Hubbard Glacier late the next afternoon. I find Hubbard Glacier to be much better than Glacier bay. It growled and I saw it claving several times. Sitka was a lovely stop. It rained again but it was such a nice city. We didn't do a tour here but the city has such lovely trails along the water. We found a bridge over a river that was filled with Salmon. It also had a fish latter that we had fun watching. We did a lot of walking this day. Sailaway was especially nice with all the islands around. We had another day at sea to get to Victoria and arrived at 1pm the next day. There was a $10 per person shuttle to town. Some people walked but it was quite a long way. It was a gorgeous day not a cloud in the sky. We booked a hop on hop off tour right in front of the Empress hotel. We never did hop off anywhere but enjoyed seeing this beautiful city. There was a lovely gift shop back at the port. We left at 11pm and never even felt the ship move. The seas on this trip were very calm. In fact I missed being rocked to sleep at night due to the lack of the motion of the ocean. This ship has a covered pool area but it was always wet in there due to condensation. I hated walking across this deck as it was always wet and slippery. I had a nice massage at the spa. I was asked to buy things as usual but it was not a hard sell. One no is all it took. Had a very nice Q and A with the dancers and singers. Lots of good information. A very nice Q and A with the captain. He was open and honest. I enjoyed these very much. There is no such thing as a bad cruise so we enjoyed this cruise, however, we decided we like warm weather cruises better than cold weather cruises. Read Less

Recently took a 14 day Alaska cruise out of Seattle on the Amsterdam. The staff was friendly and helpful. The quality and variety of food was very good. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the ship. The entertainment - with the exception of the Comedienne - were all superb. The singers and dancers were exceptional. Had an interesting itinerary going farther into Alaska (to Homer and Kodiak) than other cruises we have taken. There was a nice mix of port, sea days and fjord cruising. The two self service laundromats onboard are a real bonus! And very reasonably priced at $2 per load The one negative for us is the smoke from the casino. The casino on the Amsterdam is in the middle of deck 5 and is open at each end - there are no doors or enclosures. They allow smoking in the casino most days - so the smoke floats into all of the shops and lounges nearby, as well as up/down the atrium. You can smell it all the time, but much worse of course, when the casino is in full swing. Read Less

We take this cruise every year. This year the weather was awesome and so were the people we met. Some things have changed, and NOT for the better. 1. No deliv. of morning newspaper.You must go all the way to the front desk and get your own. 2. Obviously they have once again changed coffee's.. not very good.. sad when you must go to the Explorer Cafe and pay for a decent cup of coffee! 3. In Room Dinning ( room service ) changed their breakfast menu. So many less choices! But, I must say.. that in room dinning went out of their way to accommodate us.. Thank you! 4. I asked for the daily dinning room menu to be deliv everyday. I got it 3 times. 5. Our toilet 2 times decided not to flush! We had to wait for maintenance to come. 6. The air conditioning in our cabin was way to warm.. after having it fixed " 3 times".. we gave up and asked for a fan. 7. our cabin stewards were terrific. 8. Food in both the dinning room and Lido.. was never hot. This is more than just food being cold.. it is a HEALTH ISSUE! 9. Painting and varnishing when people are on a deck is awful and they need better ventilation when doing it. . Read Less

We visited most major ports in Alaska except Glacier Bay and Skagway/Haines. Embarkation was better than average with minimal waiting, and the port in Seattle was very easy to navigate. Holland allows 3 bottles of wine per adult which can be placed in regular luggage, but bring your corkscrew if you will drink in your room. Corkage in the dining room was $18 plus tax in Washington :-( . Once out of Washington, no tax. Wine steward service was very good with our bottle always waiting for us at dinner, and each bottle lasted 3 dinners for us. Mildly upsetting was that Holland initially tentatively charged our credit card account $1,499.82 on embarkation (per our bank) while our final bill was only $32.20, overestimating the final amount by 4,657.8 percent. Seems to me that they should have disclosed this to passengers so that they would know what to expect since many banks now inform their customers of each charge made. The ship appears to be old and desperately needs renovation with SD TV's with poor reception in the staterooms (even for the usual onboard sourced programming) with noticeable wear in the bathroom and cabin and dated ship decor. There was substantial deferred maintenance In our stateroom, the bottom desk drawer didn't function well (other passengers said theirs did not work at all) and when I decided to take a bath (I am used to the tiny showers on other lines) there was ring around the bathtub. Yuk - showers on out. I also noticed that the grout had brown stains and the toilet seat showed signs of wear. The bathroom had ample shelf space with toiletries bags and reading material going under the sink and a closing corner vanity cabinet with three levels, There was a hair dryer mounted on the wall as well as a corded hair dryer in the desk which we did not use. A magnifying mirror was mounted to the desk and there was another in the desk as well. Two bathrobes were provided. During our cruise, they were apparently sanding and varnishing outdoor stairs between decks (we were pretty far aft). The strong smell permeated the hallway and rooms and caused both my wife and I to become nauseated. This continued for a substantial time. At one point, someone propped up am outdoor chair in the exterior doorway, but that was soon removed. They were also varnishing the railing on the top deck. Unfortunately, their "Wet paint" signs were placed on small labels facing the sea twisted somewhat around the railing structure. I found out that there was wet varnish the hard way. In another area of the top deck, the top wood rail was completely missing and remained missing throughout the two week trip. Others complained of smoke odors in public areas (purportedly no smoking allowed) and we noticed curry smells near the stairwell once or twice - we presume that the crew must have been cooking in the lower decks. Clean windows appeared to be a low priority on this ship. Besides the stateroom windows which is understandable due to their inaccessibility, windows for public areas, particularly the dining room, were filthy substantially blocking the view outside. Even accessible windows (like the windows on doors in public areas were filthy). Stewards were very polite, as were most personnel on board - much better than we have experienced on competing lines, while shop personnel were typically hard sell as on other lines. Food service in the dining room was good though food sat too long and was too repetitive. With a few exceptions, soup was placed in pitchers and poured into bowls at the table which helped to keep it hot, but most everything else was lukewarm. Portions promoted good health but seemed small. They served Alaskan crab at one dinner which consisted of two segments of a single leg. Dinner fare was unimaginative and repetitive. Souffles were sparse, and the variably prepared creme brulee was available every day. The one time I tried a souffle, it was very cupcake-like. The dinner rolls were likewise the same for the whole trip while other cruiselines provide different variations and styles. I was surprised when the surf and turf night did not include a baked potato. Interestingly, this cruise featured demonstrations by America's Test Kitchen, but it did not appear that anything was communicated to the cooking staff. Eating at the Lido Buffet was similarly unimaginative. Breakfast was substantially the same everyday. There were several stations with different types of food, but the food was generally unchanged and if one wanted different things, several stations would have to be visited. There were separate stations for fried eggs, omelets, waffles, poached eggs/congee, one for juices/milk, ... If one wanted poached eggs/eggs benedict and sausage, that would require a trip to two different stations, or even more if one wanted toast, with each having a separate queue which became very long at times. The stations generally did not have any additional assistance when the queue grew. Potatoes were cooked the same throughout the trip - no variations like potatoes o-brien, hash browns, etc. were offered. Fruit was sparse, and there were no smoked fish like salmon\ or trout, nor a large variety of sliced meats like those offered on other cruiselines. The servers were apparently instructed to work fast, but in their effort to serve the next person, often failed to provide what the prior person wanted. Once, and elderly gentlemen in front of me wanted a couple of different items. When he politely repeated what he wanted, the server became visibly peeved, finally responding to him and filling his request. Things similar to this were often repeated and it appeared that the servers either didn't want to listen or did not understand the people they were serving. It appeared that their failure to listen resulted in longer delays in the lines, though by the third or fourth day, I gave up and took whatever they scooped. Beverage service (coffee, water, tea, lemon syrup water) was spotty, depending on what personnel were present. Even though we were generally approached fairly quickly, beverage speed ranged from immediate to times when after finishing my food, I went to get iced tea from the dispenser myself. Even the supervisors (in suits) were variable - sometimes they would be helpful, sometimes they were busy talking amongst themselves and didn't care, and there were times when the dining area was relatively empty - they served a single diner, but refused to acknowledge other diners who wanted refills, even turning around and walking away after seeing diners wanting service. Lunch at the Lido was similar. There were multiple stations with a few variations (whatever was left over from a prior meal). Pizza, relegated to one regular station, was the worst I have had on a cruise, in part because it generally sat around for a long time (I don't know if the older passenger demographic was a cause). It was refreshing to be offered sushi, but there was only a very few variations of mini rolls (surprising since this cruise served lots of salmon), so after the second day, meh. They were small enough that people often got several, poured the sushi onto one plate, and abandoned the empty dishes. Many also gave up on waiting for the server - they just reached over and grabbed what they wanted. The buffet closed between meals though the food was placed in warming ovens quite early. The food, having sat for an extended time, lost its freshness by the time it was offered. An example - one station had small plates of pasta. I did not encounter any fresh plates. The plates had been sitting around long enough that the outside was dry and hard. Very few people partake. For lunch, sparcely filled small sandwiches were often available in small paper bags. Unsealed, these sat around long enough that the bread was often hard and dry. Lido provided snacks 10:30p - 11:30p. Comfort food such as wings, fries, tortilla chips, potato chips and other leftovers were offered. The wings, though not real fresh, were pretty tasty (unlike the other fried chicken which could have come from a frozen TV dinner. The fries were the best I have had on a cruise ship with two variations, one well done and one regular, provided. The chips, probably coming from bags, were typical. Guacamole was provided, but typically went very quickly without replenishing and at other times, stayed, the surface clearly discolored from sitting too long. The Lido dining area was not well maintained. The tables were often a little sticky (They need to replace the cleaning buckets more often) and it appeared no one bothered to vacuum the carpet, particularly noticeable near the windows. Desserts where typical - nothing fancy - but were not replenished quickly enough. Ice cream service was exceptional, extensive queues not withstanding. There were several choices of real ice cream (eg: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, chocolate chip, cookie dough, etc., sherbets) as well as soft serve, served in regular cones, waffle cones, or in bowls with a selection of toppings such as marshmallows, syrup and chocolate chips. This started near lunch and ran throughout the day. The Pinnacle Grill provided a quiet experience with attentive service though the food was unexceptional. The Italian restaurant was a cordoned off part of the Lido. It had attentive service and good portions, though the food was not up to par and was not close to what we consider good authentic Italian food. It tasted the same as the dining room although with a little different spice mix. Since there were very few people there, it was very quiet. Their written confirmation was off by a couple of hours for us as well as another diner, but with few patrons, it did not matter. The only Cioppino I ever had before this was San Francisco Cioppino and this did not compare. I appeared that the ingredients were boiled separately with Italian inspired broth poured over. The seafood had little flavor. Entertainment was next to the worst we experienced in the over 10 cruises we have been on. The ship's personnel's shows were karaoke style with mostly recorded instumentals accompanied by a lone violinist. There was good one male singer who apparently also worked the restaurant while the others attempted a reasonable facsimile of a high school musical. Dancers included one woman who clearly had some ballet training, but the others were not so graceful. The troup's attempt at a county western bar motive was, with obviously non-native English speaking backgrounds, was entertaining, but not in a good way. The guest performers were better than the onboard musicians and dancers, and they were often accompanied by a live band which appeared to be professional. There were also the requisite lounge musicians. Stateroom TV's provided old NTSC(?) standard definition analog video of very poor quality with lots of distortion, NOT caused by degradation of satellite signal. Last time I watched video that bad was close to 20 years ago. Although the TV appeared to be a first generation stereo set, all signals going to it were mono. This was a 14 day cruise covering just a few more ports than shorter cruises and allowed extensive time in each port, so there was no hurry to get off the boat or rush back to the ship. Unfortunately, at least for us, when we returned to the ship, it was often after lunch hours and there was no food available. For extended hour ports, we arrived after dinner hours, so no food either until snacks at 10:30. This was the first time we were left hungry on a cruiseship, and after 11:30 pm, no food (although room service was still available). It would have been nice if they coordinated the buffet, but no such luck. It was surprising that many halls, stairwells and elevators and outside decks were empty after hours. It was refreshing and comfortable, if a bit spooky, to be able to walk the halls of a cruiseship without seeing another human. This contributed to the slowness of the environment. Maybe because young families cannot always afford to take a 14 day vacation, this cruise attracted an older crowd and we sexagenarians appeared to be among the younger of the crowd. This is NOT a cruise for young people though there was one pack of less than 10 millenials wandering around the decks. Our adult child would have been miserable. The whirlpool on the pool deck closed at 10pm (the pool closed earlier) which was disappointing (we like to linger later) though after 9, there were very few people on deck. Well before 10, the retractable roof over the pool area was closed. Some ports were small enough that unless you paid for a shore excursion, there was very little to do. One port provided a short shuttle to the other side of the spit where there were only a few shops catering to cruise passengers. This being our fourth cruise to Alaska, we did not go on any shore excursions. Embarkation was the best we have experienced. Port Valet service allowed passengers to check in their luggage on the ship and obtain boarding passes for their flights FREE of charge. Luggage fees were charged to our onboard account at cost ($25.00). It made it very easy and comfortable to disembark without having to deal with luggage, and made disembarkation the easiest and most efficient we ever experienced (They or our overbooked airline did lose our seat assignments, but we were able to get new assignments at the airport). I do not know whether it is a Seattle port program or a HAL program, but the ability to transfer our luggage and check in was much appreciated. Read Less

We took this cruise because of the itinerary so we could meet our daughter in Homer.It went round trip out of Seattle, which was the best part, as that is our home port. Also, several of the ports such as Anchorage, Icy Strait, Homer and Kodiak, were new to us, as we have been on a few Alaska cruises previously. The ship, the Amsterdam, was just like the Volendam, that we took on a Asia criuise in March. The Amsterdam does seem a bit dated for it's age compared to other HAL ships. The cruise director, Jorge, was delightful, the entertainment was average at best, and the food in the Pinnacle Grille was fantastic. The ship dancers and singers and band were very good though. The sailing up the Endicott Arm to Dawes Glacier and Hubbard Glacier were very scenic and spectacular. Unfortunately we did not see any wildlife, bears or whales, though some passengers said they saw some at different times. Read Less

The Amsterdam is a smaller ship of 1400 people and we sailed to Alaska for two weeks. The weather was mostly very good. We had a Vista Suite which was more than adequate. The cabin stewards were wonderful. We booked several excursions through Holland America and they were all very well done. We ate the majority of our meals in the main dining room at the 8 pm seating and had absolutely no issues at all. The meals were all excellent and I do not see any reason to pay a surcharge to go to the specialty restaurants. The entertainment was mostly very good. The HAL singers and dancers were some of the most talented that we have seen on any cruise ship (we have sailed Disney, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian). Jim Curry did a tribute to John Denver and did an excellent job. Amy Lee was a violinist who was very talented. We particularly like America's Test Kitchen with Kathleen. She demonstrated various menus and dishes throughout the cruise. We picked up some great hints and recipes. We really felt that Holland America was a step above the cruises that we have previously been on. However, we still feel strongly that Disney presents the best entertainment. I would urge you to do this two week Alaskan itinerary, we saw whales, bear, eagles, otters and orcas. The embarkation and debarkation were excellent and very well organized. Seattle was an excellent pre and post cruise city. Read Less

Far too much chipping of paint and painting and varnishing around the ship. We were awoken in Sitka, Ak. to the banging of hammers on our window. We were both ill with coughs and colds. We planned to stay in our cabin for the day but couldn't stand the noise and had to leave our cabin for the better part of the day. To any cruiser this is totally unacceptable. For this reason alone Holland has lost at least 2 customers. The Dive in burger and taco bar continually running out of food. Straws almost nonexistent, never any straws in 14 days at the Dive in, throughout and so short they barely came up to the rim of your glass. It was funny watching folks at shows digging around their $9.00 drinks trying to find their straws. It was so bad one day there were 3 restaurant managers, a chef and an officer trying to fix the problem. Food in the Lido Cafe fair to poor. This Cafe seemed to be closed far more than it was open. Again totally unacceptable. We did the same cruise in 2016 on the Maasdam and it was a very nice cruise. Main dining room food and service excellent. Some shows excellent, some poor. Itinerary great. The reason we did it again. this was our 31st cruise. There were more short comings but I'm out of time. Think twice before cruising Holland. Read Less

The staff on the ship was wonderful. Definitely no complaints there. The excursions were fine. We did not like the cabin (1885), as it was right across from the janitor's closet for the room stewards and we heard them going in there and out, all the time. Often it sounded like they were rustling our door to come in. On the other hand it was midship, so the cabin was close to the stairs and elevators. The other issues were 1) On the 6th day, brown water intermittently came out of the faucet. We reported this to the Front Desk who said to let the water run for 10 minutes and they also sent complementary bottles of water to our room. Which we used to brush our teeth and rinse our mouths. We tried the ten minute running of the water on several days thereafter but the intermittent brown water continued the rest of the cruise. We were uneasy about washing our hands with this water but we had no choice. 2) The reception of the TV in the room was spotty at best. This was frustrating, as we like to keep up with the news via TV but often there was no picture. The dinner dining was the highlight of the cruise. OMG those deserts, I gained 4 lbs. The table service was just great. At home I work out a lot, so I went to the gym for at least seven of the 14 days. The gym was just average but on the other hand not very many cruisers used it. I would guess HAL is conflicted on how nice to make a facility that is so rarely used by the cruisers. One big issue with the gym was it was too hot. I worried, as a senior, if working out in that heat would be a strain on my heart. I was always drenched with sweat when I left. Read Less

Wanted to make our first trip to Alaska special, without the long interior trip to Denali. Decided that the round trip from Seattle to Anchorage was the perfect combination of ports and days at sea. The trip exceeded our expectations. Besides the great service, smiling faces, dining options and entertainment, we met wonderful people to share our Alaska adventure and hopefully some future cruises. We elected the Dine Anytime and that worked out great. We thought we'd eat more on the Lido deck, but enjoyed most dinners in the dining room. After dinner, take in the musicans on deck 5, then off to the Queens Lounge in the front of the Ship for the Nightly entertainment at 8 or 10pm. Because the Amsterdam is a smaller ship we were able the dock at all ports, making for an easy exit to explore the ports. We did miss Kodiak due to fog and/or a research vessel dead in our spot. We did get our port fees refunded, but would have enjoyed the visit. The only regret is that we didn't do more excursions. I never heard anything negative except that they would have liked more time in the Butchart Gardens. Some excursions may seem expensive, but the memories and experiences are priceless. Have a great time and enjoy the others around you. Read Less

We arrived early to Seattle & chose to drive to Mt. Rainier National Park prior to our cruise. The embarkation could not have been quicker more easy if they tried. I arrived at the port at about 11:30 & was in my room by noon! The ship was clean, the décor was neutral (lots of fresh flowers) & just the right size. I'm a vegetarian & ate quite a few meals off the MDR menu, but they also have a vegetarian menu, I ate several appetizers, salads, & soups off of that menu as well. At dinner time the lido is not a very good option for vegetarians. I'm not a night owl, so I can't speak to the evening entertainment & I'm not a fan of production shows. There were a lot of trivia & name that tune activities presented by the cruise director & staff. Many people not unlike myself self entertained with puzzles, card games, & the like. Of which there were a lot to choose from in the Explorations Café. The service was impeccable (& I was not in a suite). HAL has a unlimited laundry service. I would choose HAL just for that service! This ship visited a lot of ports that are not regularly visited by cruise ships & I liked all of them! (I booked a few independent excursions.) I travelled with my 8 year old son & he loved HAL's Club HAL (There were 70 kids on the ship equally dispersed between the 12 & under & 13 & over set.) I would love to sail this itinerary again!

Our previous 7day cruise does not compare with this 14day Holland America cruise first of all because of the ports visited. The smaller vessel was able to reach more environmentally sensitive ports and provided a much more enjoyable experience. The onboard enrichment star, was for us, America's Test Kitchen. My husband of 48 years may start cooking! The library was first class and offered an extensive variety of activities such as board games, puzzle tables and huge assortment of books. The staff was, without fail, smiling, attentive and interactive at appropriate times. We found the menus to be well thought out and provided a good variety of veggies and desserts, including gluten and sugar free. Lovely ice cream selection. There is a nice poolside burger / taco bar that was great for snacks and meals. The fresh flowers on almost every table and venue were lovely and unexpected. Made my days special. The entertainment was typical of other cruises. Movies included popcorn which was a treat. Read Less

We chose this as our family cruise because it was a 14 day Alaska cruise and it went all the way to Anchorage. On the bright side, Alaska is still as beautiful as it was the first 2 times we cruised to Alaska, once on the Celebrity Solstice and then last year on the Disney Wonder. Both 7 day cruises were fantastic!! However, when comparing the three, this cruise was the worst, especially when it comes to entertainment and enrichment programs offered in the main theater and the lack of fun "cheesy" things to do on sea days. The food was OK, but nothing to write home about. The service was great as usually, but it seems like the staff was a little slimmer than on past cruises. For example our 2 room stewards had 39 cabins to take care of daily which seems like a lot. But the most telling factor was the cruise director had only one assistant and both of them were constantly on the move, mostly conducting 3-4 trivia games a day. No wonder there isn't a lot of variety any more on HAL sea days with regards to fun "cheesy" things to do, except of course if you like trivia. If that's the case, then you will love cruising with HAL. Read Less

We escaped the heat of Florida for the cool Alaskan glaciers and it was wonderful to be on the ms Amsterdam! Overall, yes, the ship is showing her age a bit but I loved how she "flowed" with well-designed public spaces. The only time we felt crowded was in the rush to get to an excursion, last day look at photos and occasionally in the line for ice cream at the Lido buffet. All to be expected, I think. Food, crew and service were fantastic! It's important to know that the Holland passengers skew older. If you have only ever sailed on "fun" ships, the daily schedule will seem boring to you. If you are looking for peace and quiet with mostly evening entertainment options, you'll probably like the Amsterdam. Check out the message boards and roll calls on CC, to get more details and ideas. Tip #1: If you live more than 5 hours from the port, consider a pre-night hotel stay. We had planned to arrive two days in advance and do some fun stuff in Seattle. Unfortunately, weather locked us down at the airport and I had to change our reservations from Seattle to Charlotte. Also, the next day our flight left late and we would have missed our embarkation, if we hadn't planned for that 2-night stay in Seattle. Tip #2: If you don't want to drink tap water, pre-order the 12-liter package from the Holland website (costs considerably less than buying single bottles on the ship). Also, bring a canteen or water bottle unless you're willing to carry a liter bottle around. Tip #2a: Almost forgot... Get the unlimited laundry deal. On our cruise it was just $98 for two weeks of laundry and pressing (I used this for formal clothes). Be sure to ask your cabin steward early on to bring you extra bags and forms. There are a couple self-service "laundrettes" but, for me, the paid service was totally worth it. Tip #3: the Amsterdam still has a lovely big library with lots of books, puzzles and games. They also have a lovely coffee bar (not too pricey) and free pastries (different than most you find on the rest of the ship). We spent several hours in this space playing Scrabble, chess and just watching the waves. Tip #4+: Research the ports and check out the on-line excursion companies. We did two excursions with Holland, two with outside companies and the rest on our own (with help from Google and friendly visitor centers). Due to bad weather, we did miss one port so be sure any outside tickets are refundable or you're willing to lose that money. Be sure to bring your good binoculars and camera. This was the first trip in 5 years, I wished I had more than just my cell phone camera. Tip #5: Dress for local conditions. This is a cruise but you'll be in trouble if you just bring shorts and t-shirts! For Alaska, bring raingear, warm clothes, good hiking shoes, sunscreen and mosquito repellant, depending on what you plan to do in port. Tip #6: Stairs! If you can, use the stairs as often as possible to make up for the calorie load. There is a small gym available and a wonderful promenade deck but I found the stairs are best for me to keep my weight gain down to just a couple lbs. Also, the elevators can be slow at times - remember Holland skews older so many just CAN'T use those stairs. Tip #7: "Anytime" dining worked fine for us on the two formal nights we used it. We asked for a table just for us and had to wait just a few minutes for it. Just know that most of the prime window tables are large so either the families or the "friendlies" usually get those. Tip #8: If you want to go to the 8 pm shows, get there a little (10-15 min) early for better seats. Some folks get there 30+ mins early for the "best" seats. I went to 3 of these shows and enjoyed all of them - 1 musical, 1 juggler and a comedian. We spend several evenings just chilling in the cabin with some wine and a DVD selected from the list in the cabin. (We did have some glitches with the first two DVDs we chose. When we asked for a machine cleaner from the cabin steward, we ended up with a completely new machine!) Tip #9: PORT Valet!! If you are flying with a participating airline, this is the way to go. It takes a little extra planning while you're on the ship but was great not to have to find and lug suitcases onto the bus and into/through the airport. As a final note, please bring a bit of patience and kindness with you. What bothered me most on this cruise (as with other cruises) was the rare but noticeable rudeness of some passengers towards other passengers and crewmembers. Please don't be "that" man or woman.

We chose this cruise because it is one of the few 14 day'ers to Alaska that does not repeat ports and we had not been on HA since 2006, when we "started late". The total experience was a really pleasant surprise. Enjoyed porting in Anchorage for the first time and really liked the tour to the zoo, there, since we had not been there since 1984, on a non-cruise trip. Embarkation was effortless and checking bags through to LAX worked well. The suites were nice, and the two concierges in the Neptune lounge were very helpful, especially in getting our dining reservations changed to a window table for 4, since we had a couple of friends that we wanted to dine with at the early seating. The shows were very good and the crew was great. Have 2 more HA's booked, along with 9 others. Was cruise number 71 since 2006. Looking forward to the Konigsdam next July. We would do this cruise again for sure. Read Less

over all this was best Holland Cruise ever, took this for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. only negative thing we could say - dont go to salmon bake if you dont like squirrels and crows walking on tables next to you and your food. concierge in neptune lounge were outstanding. room stewards were always there when we needed them. this was our 14th cruise and we got a suite. wow wonderful. they treat you like royalty. scenary was out of this world. food was average for cruise. service by all staff was great. cabin is under the pool deck and so you do hear dragging at night when cleaning up pool area. entertainment was average. ship was clean and and in above average shape. dining staff remembered everything we liked and didnt like embarkation too long; disembarkation wonderful. wish we could have stayed another two weeks with same crew.

Having sailed with HAL for twenty years, we seldom sail with any other line. We had been to Alaska in April 2016, and wanted to go back to see more of the glaciers. We arrived later than usual and went directly to our beautiful cabin without waiting in lines of any kind. The Amsterdam is an older ship, but it didn't show any signs of wear-and-tear anywhere. The food in the Lido had a nice variety of food (and I am a picky eater), and the main dining room food was good and nicely presented, with fabulous service; we were always served and out in less than an hour. The entertainment was interesting enough, with a nice variety of music, dance and comedy acts. The casino was smaller than usual, but the games were fun and the host 'Giovani' was generous with complimentary alcohol. The service in the cabin was the best I've had in twenty years, and the concierge 'Jersey' and her assistant 'Bong' in the Neptune Lounge were quick to offer assistance of any kind, be it dinner reservations, or sending sparkling wine to the cabin. The ports were fun, Ketchican being the best stop to buy reasonably priced items. Of course, the glaciers were breathtaking, as was all of the scenery in Alaska. I seldom do excursions, and enjoy only the 'walkable' ports or the ports where a complimentary shuttle is provided. Mostly I stay onboard and enjoy the spaciousness and décor of the ship when everyone else has gone ashore. The highlight of the trip was the sighting of whales, seals, otters, and other wildlife from our private balcony, no excursion necessary! I would go a third time to Alaska, maybe try the Denali sail next time. Read Less

14 day itinerary took in most Alaska ports and it was so comprehensive. Seeing the Hubbard Glacier up close on a sunny afternoon was amazing. Also, cruising Tracy Arm while avoiding ice chunks shows that HAL has a wonderful navigation team. Amsterdam is the perfect size to access ports like Sitka, Kodiac, Homer. Anchorage and Hoonah. Crew is excellent. The Lido deck buffets were very good and the specialty restaurants Canaletto and Pinnacle Grill for lunch were treats. Dining room food is just ok. Amsterdam's entertainment was ok overall with a wonderful ventroloquist, comedians and musicians. However, the selection of movies in the theater left much to be desired. The movie theater used to be a strong point but horror flics and childrens animated movies are not appropriate for a largely well travelled clientele. Amsterdam's Captain should avoid negative political comments over ship loudspeakers-not appropriate to "bite the hand that feeds him". Perhaps he should move back to Holland? Read Less

We signed up for this cruise because the price was right and it included ports we had never sailed to. The weather was better that we could hope for. We only had a little rain on one day and we dried out after being rained on. That port was Icy Strait, which was new to us. The tribal corporation has built very nice, modern port facilities. We enjoyed walking thru their shops but really enjoyed walking to their village. Everyone we spoke to were very polite and helpful. Our visit to Kodiak was great. At Sitka, we had arranged a tour that was excellent. Their web site is sitkawildlifetours.com. Check it out, the price is excellent and the tour we took was very professional and informative. We also did a tour on our own in Victoria that was a walking tour with food tasting along the way. Their web site is atasteofvictoriafoodtours.com. Again, worth checking out. We very much enjoyed the tour. The experience on the ship was very positive. The ship is well kept and the right size. Dining at the main dining room was never crowded. We had to wait about 5 minutes on one occasion. Other that that, it was walk up and be seated for any time dining. The food was excellent as was the service. The shows were pretty good in general. We do not care much for the shows with the ship's cast as they tend to be too loud and over amplified. The other shows were mostly very good. The crew members were very nice and helpful. I'd highly recommend this cruise to anyone who has an interest in visiting various ports in Alaska. Read Less

I chose this cruise for the ports of call and number of days and secondly the price value. The cabin stewards need more training and attention to cleanliness and details of proviing the needed supplies. The excutive chef was very good in providing a good choice of meals, tasty meals, innovative combinations and excellent fish dishes. The entertainment was fine. the veriety of ports of call was great . and the sights while sailing was even greater , for example stopping at Hubbard glacier and saiing deep into Tracy Arm fiord. I would have liked to see more choices of shore excursions in between the tame sightseeing and the very adventurous( kayaking). Read Less

First I want to thank all the people who have posted ideas and suggestions on Cruise Critic and Trip Advisor in the past. Your ideas and suggestions made this a wonderful cruise. We went a day early and stayed at the Waterfront Marriott. ( see my review in trip advisor It is close to Pike’s place and about 3 miles from Smith Cove Pier 91 where the Amsterdam docks. There are two major cruise terminals Pier 62, 63 and Pier 91. We took a taxi from SEATAC to Marriott about $55. Had dinner at Bell Street Diner across the street from the Marriot. Nice outdoor seating. We lucked out the entire trip, mostly sunny. You can walk from the Marriot to Pike Place market. It was jammed that Sunday because the weather was sunny and warm, we stopped at Target a few blocks up the street from the market and picked up a bottle of Champagne. You are allowed to bring one bottle each. Though there is an $ 18 corkage fee to drink it in the dining room. Took a cab to the Pier 91 about 11 am on Monday, July 3. Embarkation was easy, not much wait. Make sure you have your passport and boarding docs. We were on the boat before noon. Our luggage was delivered about 3. Our room stewards MUS & EKO were great, always smiling and helpful. Usually when we went to breakfast about 8-9 the room was cleaned when we returned. WE were in cabin 2644 on the main deck, port side. Before we booked, we read a lot of posts about which is the best side. Because the Amsterdam goes up and back from Seattle, it don’t think it really matters. WE preferred the port side. One of the great things we read about the Amsterdam was the many public view rooms and the promenade deck. It is all true. There are so many great placed to view the Alaska coast that we decided to save the money and not get a veranda room. There are probably a lot of people who will disagree but I don’t believe it could have been any better. We could sit in the crow’s nest and watch the sun set at 11:20. Watch the ship sail through the Gulf of Alaska while working out, or if so inclined watch the sun rise at 4:15 while being comfortable with a blanket and hot chocolate on the promenade deck. Food WE eat in the Lido café for breakfast and lunch. Got crowded but we always seem to find a spot next to the window. The food was good but not great. Much better than typical land type buffets restaurants. I read many articles about self-service vs. the staff serving for the first 48 hrs. Throughout the entire cruise most of the food is served by staff in front of glass screen. Which is much better from my perspective them people gouging into the food. More sanitary too. Deserts, bread, premade sandwiches, coffee, and tea were all self-serve. Ice cream was served and it was a big hit. Outside the Lido was the pool and sun deck and there was a grill that served hamburgers, hot dogs, French fires that looks good. Also self-serve taco bar. My sister and her husband ate breakfast and sometimes lunch in the dining room. They loved it. Quiet, great service and good food. During port days the dining room was closed for lunch. Dinner in the dining room was very good with lots of choices each night. They always had steak, salmon and a meatless dish in addition to 4-5 different choices each night. The dining room staff was excellent. Friendly, great service. We had open dining, much more flexible. Just go to the dining room anytime between 5:00- 8:30 or 9:00 pm, hardly ever had to wait to be seated. You can either request a table for the number in your party. You can also asked to be seat at a table with other 4, 6, and 8. That were also just seated and looking to sit with other cruisers. We sat with one or two other couples a few times. It was nice. My sister reported that a few times they sat with some people they would rather avoid in the future. To each their own We ate in the Pinnacle grill once, reserved two night before the cruise and ate there the first night of the cruise. Good steaks but not great, similar to a good steakhouse in the city. Nice quiet atmosphere but not worth the extra $ 70.00 per couple. After a few nights eating in the dining room we cancelled the second night at the pinnacle grill. The bursar’s desk was excellent about it. Credited our account. No questions asked. They have packages that work out to 60 per couple but you don’t choose the time until you are on board. Paying the extra $ 10 you pick the date and time when you make the reservation on line. Wine package. We drink wine at dinner. The admiral wine package is a good deal. We bought a 5 wine package, $228. Afterwards, realized for a 14 day cruise the 7 bottle would have been better. We were happy with the wines choices. The navigator package is less expensive. My sister ordered the 3 bottle package and the wine was OK. For the extra money the wines in the admiral package were better. Someone on cruise critic posted the cost of the wine in the admiral package if you bought it at Costco. $15-20 a bottle. It was very easy to use the wine package. The first night in the Pinnacle grill we had a red wine, then in the first night in the dining room a chardonnay. They store the wine for you. Put your room number on it. If you are a wine drinker in the Costco $ 15-20 a bottle category, I recommend the admiral package. The Facilities & Public rooms The gym was very good, plenty of machines similar to what you would find in a small gym. Had weights and room + mats for stretching. Also had several different types of classes. Some free and others with a $13 fee. My wife took yoga classes, instructor was very good. The gym was clean and also had a sauna and shower room. The gym is at the very front of the ship with windows looking out. Great views while working out. One of the things we liked most about the Amsterdam was there were plenty of quiet public rooms. The explorer café was a great place to read and a just watch the scenery. There were people playing cards and working puzzles in adjunct rooms. The casino was always busy in the evening and many times during the day. We didn’t use the pool or Jacuzzi but plenty of people did. The area had a sliding covered roof that they opened and a lot of tables. Excursions. According to many people on our cruise that had taken this exact same cruise multiple time.( for us it was hard to believe but we met 4-5 couples that this was their 3-5 time on the 14 day Amsterdam Alaska cruise. ) We had the best weather they had ever seen for an Alaska cruise. It was sunny most days and only rained slightly in two ports. I have posted reviews of the excursions under each port. We hiked in several of the ports and didn’t take any HAL shore excursions. My sister took the float plan in Ketchikan and loved it. My brother in law took the halibut fishing excursion in Homer, caught two big halibut. Said it was great. They process, freeze and store the fish and ship it to you overnight once you are back home.   Read Less

Each day was as good as or better than the day before. After a cool and rainy Spring and early Summer, we brought Alaska good weather. The Gulf of Alaska was like glass for part of one day and the only "bumpy" time was when we were North of Vancouver Island on Day 2, heading for Ketchikan. Even that was very mild. As usual, an outstandingly friendly and helpful crew. MDR service was excellent and cuisine was good to excellent. Pinnacle Grill continues to disappoint me, but Canaletto was excellent. The ship was well maintained with appropriate temperatures in all venues. Dry docking is needed to update the facilities, however. Trivia is "king", but many enjoyed the new addition in place of the Culinary Arts Center. The addition of BBC Earth to the programming reinforces the HAL movement to programs designed to appeal to guests who are more "destination oriented" than in the past. The EXC Guide provided more detailed information during her talks, both in the Showroom as well as when we were in very scenic areas, i.e. Hubbard Glacier. Maps and information provided in the staterooms, however, are lacking--which they have been for some time, Entertainment included a comedian who I did not think was funny at all to one who was hilarious. The Band in the Crow's Nest and the Trio in the Ocean Bar were great. Cast shows, from the ones I did attend, were well done. And, of course, the Indonesian Crew Show was very enjoyable. Sailing from Seattle through Puget Sound and the Straits of Juan de Fuco provides memorable views. Read Less
