Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We chose this Asian cruise due to the itinerary (Ha!!)and visiting Vietnam was on our bucket list. Despite the Coronavirus situation, we thought the cruise was awesome.The Captain, cruise director, hotel director..and the entire crew were amazing. The passengers were kept informed of the ongoing changing situation and everyone ( passengers, as well as crew) became one big family supported each other. Holland America handled the situation in a very caring, professional manner. I have cruised over 50 times with various cruise lines, but after this experience with Holland America, I will be loyal to Holland A. Our cabin attendants, dining room waiters, dining room host were very attentive. The Entertainment in the main showroom was fine, BBKing lounge routine got very repetitious( same sets every evening). The cruise director, Jamie, was the best we have ever had. Holland America followed up with passengers due to the virus situation after passengers were back home which was a great policy.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Love the aft facing cabin for the view, but found there was soot from the engines on my veranda each day and was difficult for cabin steward to clean, therefore, the deck chairs and floor of veranda were constantly dirty.

Port Reviews

Nha Trang

We loved Nha Trang. We took the bus (cruise sponsored) into the city. The city is great, beautiful beach area, fun shopping, and great Vietnamese restaurants. We will definitely come back to Nha Trang for an extended visit
