We chose this cruise to see the Baltic ports we had heard so much about, but also to see the Shetland Isles and a bit more of Scotland than we've seen before. That part of the cruise was our favorite (We're not city lovers.) The Baltic ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were interested in visiting Scandinavia and Russia, and we liked Holland's itinerary best.. We took a one day Holland America tour to Moscow from St. Petersburg on the high speed train. The tour guide ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the ports and we were not deceived, although you need to be prepared since there is very few sea days. Beautiful areas to visit by sea. We found that the food was of less quality than our previous HA cruise as ... Read more

We had not sailed Holland for several years. I feel that the clientele has moved to a much older crowd. Many guests on walkers, wheelchairs etc. My biggest disappointment was the itinerary during the day. There was nothing to do. No ... Read more

We had sailed on the Holland America Zuiderdam out of Copenhagen for a Norwegian Fjord and Scotland/UK cruise in June/July 2017. Upon arrival at the airport we were transported to the Scandic Palace Hotel in the city and then to the ... Read more

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, ... Read more

The Baltic Adventure Itinerary was an extraordinary draw for everyone with whom we spoke on this trip. Still can't believe we have been to all the countries we visitied! Booked almost all of the excursions privately and toured with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we enjoyed visiting the ports of call immensely. It was everything that we expected from an HAL cruise. The Zuiderdam is a good medium size ship . The public rooms are nice. The ... Read more

We wanted to visit these ports and were not disappointed. The ship service and food was superior. We avoid crowded ship excursions but did go to Hamburg with HAL and was very pleased, Our cabin was more than suitable with lots of ... Read more

Zuiderdam was in good shape even though there was a little wear and tear due to her age. Her decor is a little "loud" for my tastes [i.e. not quite as elegant as other ships in the fleet] but fresh flowers are still all over the ... Read more

I am just writing this review in case anyone has the same questions as I did. The itinerary on this cruise speaks for itself, I can’t imagine a better northern European itinerary so I will focus on the ship itself. First of ... Read more

Holland started the cruise out perfectly. We were met at CPH by Holland representatives. Since the flight arrived at 7:30 am, too early to board the ship, they provided us with a 2 hour tour of Copenhagen. Embarkation went very smoothly ... Read more

We chose this port intensive cruise because of timing price and airfare. First time sailing with HAL, not very exciting. The ship was clean, but not updated. The hallways in the cabin areas were very bland and old looking. The ... Read more

We liked the itinerary and as we had travelled with HA twice before, and the price was good as a late booker, we had no hesitation in joining this cruise. The recent refurbishment (dry dock) gave a much needed modern vibrant decor for the ... Read more

My intent was to explore the Baltic and particularly St. Petersburg. The ports of call were interesting but another day in St. Petersburg would have made the time spent more relaxing. Since I have travelled extensively with HAL, four star, ... Read more

Have never been to any of these countries, ports, or cities. What a opportunity to see as much as possible on one cruise! I chose HAL because I had cruised with them previously x 5. I had read some reviews that made me concerned that ... Read more

May 17-29, 2017. Two places to visit on my bucket list were Norway and Scotland, so when I saw this HAL cruise to both places, I was sold. This was my first cruise on the Zuiderdam and I was very pleased. The itinerary was round-trip ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly because we stumbled upon it in a casino user promotion that we got in the mail. We didn’t even know that itinerary was offered and we’ve been wanting to visit Norway and Scotland in greater depth ... Read more

We travelled as a group of 6 - 3 couples. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary; none of us had cruised before with Holland America and reading the reviews prior to going we weren't expecting the ship to be the best. The ship ... Read more

We took the Zuiderdam transatlantic, and chose it because we had taken the same ship to the Panama Canal in 2012 and had a very good time. There wasn't a problem with embarkation or disembarkation. We opted for a suite, and we enjoyed ... Read more

Second trans-atlantic on the Zdam, and it was great again. The ship is in good shape, and the service is full, efficient, and happily delivered. SY cabin was fine, except for the old small flat screen TV. Those are cheap, with crappy ... Read more

A TransAtlantic offers us a lengthy cruise at a reasonable fare with lots of sea days to relax and/or take advantage of the amenities and activities of the ship. We've done several before and always had a good experience. Holland America ... Read more
