Sail Date: Jul 2022

Overall, I thought there were some positive aspects to the Rotterdam but we wouldn't sail with HA again. It was interesting the number of HA loyalists we met onboard who were certain HA was the best although they had never sailed on another cruise line.


Beautiful new ship with sparkling clean interiors. Excellent crew- room stewards were all Indonesian (?) and the captain is Dutch but lives in Florida. Very nice hosts/hostesses at Club Orange and specialty restaurants.

We had a great experience with Kristjan Stefansson of

He's both a certified guide and a location scout for movies/tv show filmed in Iceland


Vigur Island excursion was interesting although loose rocks and uneven surfaces in parts- could be challenging for the mobility impaired.
