My wife and I took a Holland America cruise to the Western Caribbean from Jan. 4, 2020 to Jan. 11, 2020, aboard the NIEUW AMSTERDAM. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. The dining was an excellent experience as well. This was the first time I had an inside room. It was small as expected, but was adequate. The activities were very limited which was okay because I wanted ...

Neiuw Amsterdam Jan 4 - 11 This was by far the worst cruise my wife and I have ever sailed... 1) We arrived onboard to find out that one of the engines(Azipods) was STILL broken and we would not be able to reach our St Marteen port, the reason we booked this cruise in the first place, this because the boat was unable to reach the speed needed to reach the port. In fact ALL of ports times ...

My wife and I enjoyed the cruise. Booked another on the cruise. The food was very enjoyable. We dined mostly in the Lido but twice in the MDR. Wish the food was labeled. Liked that it was served by staff which seemed much more sanitary. The happy hours where a good value. Staff was friendly. We really liked the service from our room steward Ichsan. He was very pleasant and did an ...

My wife and I (71) booked this Caribbean cruise this past June while travelling on a 14 day Holland America Westerdam cruise from Seattle to Alaska. We always book a Interior Cabin. Embarkation at Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale) was superb in every way. Arrived at 11:00 by parking shuttle and were on board by noon and it was extremely easy with minimal waiting and friendly staff. Luggage ...

I have never experienced a more boring cruise than this one. The same selected songs got replayed over and over and over until my head hurt. Some crew members seemed like they didn’t really want to be there, some had attitudes or didn’t want to help. The 3 crew members that stood out to me were Ruel, Nissan and this one guy that i don’t remember his name but he was usually in the icecream station, ...

Our 2nd Holland cruise out of 11 - last Holland we will take. Had only 4 out of 7 nights of live entertainment. An excellent magician/illusionist, an interpreted dance company for 2 nights, and a not very good comedian. Have one spot for live band only, BB Kings Blues Band, dueling pianos a few times a day, a classical instrumental venue, and that's it! Other than team trivia and lots of ...

We choose this cruise to get our first taste of HAL, which line has longer cruises in which we have an interest. The result was mixed. Many wonderful extras in service, lovely promendade deck with relaxing deck chairs, a great music deck with duel pianos playing a variety of music, classical music site, and a fantastic rock and roll soul band at BB Kings. 3 PM tea with finger sandwhiches was a ...

This was a charter, Malt Shop Memories, my 4th one. It's a 7d cruise, you go on for the entertainment. It's very pricey, you hope to meet the stars, singers etc. The surprise is how inaccessible The Beach Boys & Smokey were, & how good/friendly the back up bands/acts were. Brooklyn Bridge (Jimmy Rosica :D) , Zmed Brothers/Everly tribute artists (wow!), Joey Dee (yay), Chris Montez, Sounds of ...
