Good cruise, not the best weather or ports

Review for Rotterdam to Norwegian Fjords

This was a charter of a group I belong to. I had been on land vacations to Norway twice & enjoyed the country very much. Thought a cruise would be another way to experience it. The best way to see Norway is on a land vacation w/day trips to the fjords, not a cruise. We only did 4 ports, Bergen, which we did not get to see because of extreme rain & wind, Geirangerfjord, if you have done New ...

Fabulous Fjords, Fabulous Time on the Rotterdam

Background: After a 2017 made somewhat horrifying by having to confront a potentially life-threatening health crisis, I wanted to give myself something to look forward to, and planned it far enough in advance-- nearly a year out-- that even if I'd needed to endure a long operation to have the offending organ yanked out, I would still have had sufficient time to recover to make the trip.  ...

Great Norwegian Fjord Trip on a Special Ship

This is my 6th cruise and 6th different cruise line. What sets Cunard apart is a sense of history that you can’t find on other cruise lines. All the wall decorations are paintings of current and past Cunard-White Star ships and old photos and memorabilia. You might want to read a little bit about the history to fully appreciate it. When the ship is in port it’s seems to be more special than just ...

Norway and Iceland have been on our bucket list for quite a while and the ports certainly didn't disappoint. Same couldn't be said for the cruise after our great time in the Med on Queen Vic two years ago. Is it just the different ship or is Cunard being Carnivalised? Cabin and attendant were great but just about everything else was understaffed, under quality and at times under ...

The Rotterdam is an older ship and does show some wear especially in the bathtubs and the décor in some of the areas. However, once you experience the friendly and helpful staff, the great food and the awesome atmosphere you quickly forget the age of the ship. Embarkation was a bit rough in that requested wheelchair was not available and had to wait in the chilly air outside until it arrived. ...

Don't listen to all the people who complained. It's a brand new ship that was inaugurated only in May 2016, it looks new,it smells new and it is new! Very good, excellent service, food was beyond expectations. Family room was a little bit crowdy but you don't feel it since the whole day you're out. Plan your shore excursions yourself, otherwise you will have to pay a lot of money. For ...

My partner and I are in our early 30s and this was our second cruise. Our first was with Royal Caribbean to the South Pacific. We chose Holland America expecting a better experience considering the price difference was substantial (almost double compared to Royal Caribbean). Unfortunately we were disappointed across the board. Food: The food was actually very bad across the board, from in ...

Beautiful weather; mediocre cruising experience

We choose this cruise for the itinerary, which did not disappoint. We had marvelous weather in Norway, much better than expected. Not a drop of rain! The Rotterdam experience, however, was not up to our expectations. The Vista cabin was fine but the bathroom was in great need of updating. I would never have taken a bath in the tub! It was very warn and unclean-looking. Our steward, usually a real ...

Reading another review about the state of the ship and the quality of the food, I'd like to share our experience onboard the Rotterdam. This was my fifth cruise on this ship. We had dinner in the MDR 5 nights and breakfast every morning. Food was perfect, always right temperature and served promptly. Other guests at the table who did other cruiselines but were first time on HAL, commented ...

Disappointed by HAL's Dumbing Down

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

Our choice was based on itinerary, price, smaller ship size, and past experience with HAL. Overall we were once again pleased with HAL service but the ship is getting somewhat "frayed around the edges". The dining experience was as very good or better than ever in all dining rooms and the cabin service superb. The song and dance troupe were also excellent. Also, other sectors of the tour ...
