Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Nieuw Statendam

We were fairly pleased overall with our 2 weeks aboard the Nieuw Statendam, with one notable highlight & a few disappointments. The highlight for us was the exceptionally awesome way our room attendants Gusti & Budi kept our balcony cabin immaculate at all hours of the day! On the negative, Holland America is obviously still trying to find ways to restore profitability after surviving Covid. One ...

To start with embarking, really a shame, a que of one mile in the cold outside. On board It is just as busy here as on the A16, with traffic jams everywhere for food and drinks. Everything customer unfriendly, commercially arranged, no feeling that you have paid for a nice cruise despite your packages, etc. Paying extra for many things, sometimes even 1 euro for a glass of wine that falls just ...

We boarded Euribia on the 17th in Rotterdam. The ship is beautiful, utterly spotless too. Cannot complain about the hard product. The staff are also clearly doing their Best: my Cabin steward and water were both fenomenal, went above and beyond. The issue is MSC itself and the cruise organization. For reasons beyond us, midway though our cruise our dinner Seating time was change. As in, the ...

This was our second cruise since the pandemic. We took a Viking Ocean Cruise in the spring and it was the most boring experience we have ever had, never again or at least not until we are in our 80's will be contemplate Viking again. The Apex on the other hand was amazing. Boarding in Rotterdam was very simple, on the ship in minutes. Our Aqua class cabin was amazing. We have never had a ...

I have to say overall it was a great cruise. Started in Rotterdam and ended in Athens. The service was impeccable. So helpful and friendly. I was with a group of 12 others. We tried all 4 restaurants the first 4 nights then ate in Eden the 5th night. During that dinner we said we missed going to the same restaurant with the same waiter every night. So I spoke with the matre' d and every night at ...

Celebrity was our favorite Cruise line and first choice for cruising. Not any more. Our first impression once on board was great. We had a infinite balcony on level 6 and loved it. The decor in all areas of the ship was first class. We paid for the all inclusive package that was extremely disappointing. All the classic cocktails tasted like they were made with watered down spirits. The ...

A Very Nice Ship But Nothing Extraordinary

We were looking forward to our first Celebrity cruise after hearing so many rave comments by our friends. In some ways, they were exactly right - the cabins were among the best we've found in the various cruises we've taken. On the other hand, the dining was not nearly as exceptional as they made it sound and the entertainment ranged from excellent to merely soso. Overall, we had a very nice ...

This is such a simple review. There is no bad or ugly. We are "later 60's" seniors from California and evidently easy to please. This was only my second cruise on HAL, the third for my better half. The most recent previous cruise was Celebrity Solstice in the Med last year in October, a great experience. Previous to that was the Maasdam in June last year, Boston to Montreal, also a great ...

Embarkation: We used Rome Cabs for our transfer from Rome to Civitavecchia and they were prompt and professional (they also picked us from the airport two days earlier).  We arranged to share the ride with two other couples from our roll call which lowered the cost considerably.  We arrived at the port about 12:30ish and we were onboard with champagne in hand within a half hour. Ship: We ...
