Smaller ship cruising was a new experience for us, and we are now hooked ! Overall the ship itself is beautiful, exceptionally clean and great staff. Embarkation in Vancouver took over an hour , however our suite was ready which was nice. The suite itself was lovely, apart from the pillows which we found so uncomfortable and the duvet was far too heavy ! We asked for a top sheet which did ...

Everything was great, except for the stateroom . It was the worst we have ever had in my 50 plus years of cruising.They need to retire this 29 year boat. The brochure claims modern design features and amenities. Recently renovated- No phone in room, TV is analog with 5 stations, wires hanging off wall, had to request extension card to have hight stand light and bathroom is the a step up affair. ...

Not quite up to 5 stars for the cost

We took our first river cruse for 7 days, down the Snake and Columbia. It was Lewis and Clark themed, on the newer Harmony. This type cruse might be considered all first class. Large room with a balcony, drinks, meals, most shore excursions were included. As we booked early for the first week in June, they included coach air fare, as well as a night stay before the cruse at a hotel nearby. Airport ...

Crew was very friendly and experienced. Food was generally very good to excellent but sometimes served cold especially at breakfast. Our package included free beer and wine at lunch and dinner so we didn’t even use our bottles we brought on board. Cabins were clean and well kept. Stewards were very responsive to your needs or request. We had a fantastic Cruise Director that was extremely ...

Not the best food at sea

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Despite Oceania claiming to be the best food at sea, sadly it is not. Lukewarm food on cold plates spoils the finest of cuisines. Like all cruise lines, the ship is spotless, the service is good and almost all crew very pleasant. Officers are conspicuous by their absence and safety does not seem to be their primary concern. An issue with mobility scooters was most poorly handled when lack of ...

Disappointed

Not as good as previous experiences with Holland America. Food in the Lido was poorer quality and the hot table items were barely warm, very poor vegetable selection. the main dining room menu choices were not great and now there are more up charges. On previous cruises with this line and the others we have travelled with the food was always one of the highlights this time it was definitely ...

Relaxing short cruise

Took a mini cruise from our home port San Diego to Vancouver. Positives: 1. Boarding was seamless and on the ship before noon. 2. Room was a veranda and very comfortable. Surprised there was a mini bathtub. Plenty of storage space though you need to use area under bed closest to the wall. Balcony was adequate. Mini fridge handy though space limited by for sale beverages. ...

First and last back to back cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We decided to take a back to back cruise since it was easier to hop on the ship in San Diego instead of flying to Vancouver. This happened to be our first cruise since covid started so were curious what changes that we would expect. Some of the changes were beneficial- using the navigator app is a big upgrade from the past daily paper agenda. Having the crew fill your plate cuts down people ...

A relaxing, enjoyable experience

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Serenade

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We had a relaxing, enjoyable experience on our recent cruise on the lower Mississippi. This was our first river cruise and was much different than the ocean cruises we were used to. The cruise was more expensive than our nine previous cruises but almost everything was included - no constant pressure to buy. We spent the evening prior to the cruise at the Graceland Guest House, a very nice ...

Path of Lewis & Clark

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

It was a scenic and educational cruise, along the paths of Lewis & Clark. The food and service was commendable. At times the enthusiasm of the leader reminded me of a high school pep rally, a bit over the top. The complimentary excursions were excellent. The only two complaints we have are that the cruise line changed the departure hotel after we had our own made plans to arrive a day early; that ...
