We decided to do this 4 night cruise on the Rotterdam and it was our first post pandemic cruise. We really loved our cruise. Food Fantastic in Buffet and also Main Dining Room. We enjoyed Pinnacle Grill for Lunch and were really enchanted by the quality of food and service. The cocktails are very good especially at the Lido Bar. Bartender Emery made me the most fantastic St-Germain Martinis. Front Desk Personnel were very patient and pleasant with our demands and always had a smile. Dutch Café Baristas top notch. Quality of the music is a real + at night for the shows they put on. B.B. King right up there. Great!

Our cabin stewarts did a great job. Everything was well placed and clean. Big thumbs up for Ende, Aep and Kus.

The only issue I had was at the Ocean Bar. Asked for the Holland America cocktail, Strawberry Basil Bellissimo and they didn't have Basil on the first night and the second and the third. I didn't find that the Bar was up to par professionnaly.

Cabin Review

We decided for a budget cruise so did go for an interior. I would certainly not miss a cruise because of an Interior cabin.

We found that the only thing missing was a couch. Bed very confortable. Washroom very nice and well maintained.

Half Moon Cay

Absolutely Fantastic Beach. Weather was Perfect. Has a shell to protect from the sun and thought it was worth it.
