Review for Diamond Princess to Mexican Riviera

This is my first cruise post pandemic and chose this cruise to avoid distance embarkation point to avoid flying. Simply driving down to San Diego to board this ship was very attractive to us. We selected mini suite for its size and Club class for dinning convenience. It was well worth it for expedited seating and personal touch. The service onboard by everyone involved was impeccable, it was ...

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and was worried about the ship as it just came back in service. There are only about a 1000 passengers for a ship.that holds 2700. My first impression was Blah and after 10 days my impression hasn’t changed. The cabins are comfortable, with soft comfortable beds. The shower is small. The room steward excellent. The entertainment is poor, but princess ships ...

First, we love HAL. Each time we sail, we are impressed with the service, the food, and the ships. Of course, like everyone else we are always most impressed with the crew and, particularly, our stewards. What a great bunch of professionals each and every one has been! This cruise had some hiccups and coughs that I think they will soon work out, as well as one possible major flaw that ...

Are all cruises having post COVID-19 issues ?

Our first cruise since COVID, and first on Holland ever. Extremely disappointed. First the Pros: The overwhelmed crew provided great service. There were just not enough of them to meet demand. Food in the Dinning Room was very good. Cabin was clean and comfortable. The Cons: There we’re periods through the day when you could not get ANY food. And those hours were not clearly ...

I am currently on the Koningsdam, its Thanksgiving day and here is my review. I’ve never cruised Holland America before. Mostly I’m a loyal Royal Caribbean fan. I’m travelling solo this time after three years not leaving the island where I live and I was ready to cruise again. I chose Holland America because they sail out of San Diego, the closet port to my home in Hawaii. I wanted an older ...

First fully booked cruise since Covid. Did they handle the crowds well?

Context: I'm a 40-something gay man traveling with my husband and our 19 year old kid (first cruise for the kid). This was my first cruise on HAL, and his second. Other lines we've done: Celebrity (twice), RCCL (twice), Norwegian (twice), Princess (once). Our favorite lines are Celebrity and RCCL. A little context to this review. Apparently, this was the first fully booked cruise on ...

Wanted to love, but never again with Holland

Let me start by saying that I really wanted and was looking forward to a wonderful cruise. I heard nothing but great reviews (mostly). This whole trip started before the pandemic as my fiancé, and I purchased a 17-day Hawaiian island cruise( we were going to marry and the cruise was our honeymoon) that was cancelled due to the pandemic (No fault of Holland). Long story short after fighting with ...

Day 2 of cruise and I'm done. Shower curtain stained with someone else's blood and boogers. The entire bottom of it is stained yellow like someone was peeing on it ! A urine soaked shower curtain. Sickening. Guest services looked shocked, apologized and gave me a new one to hang myself. This ship and service has gone from good to horrible overnight. Tiana's food is cold and inedible. The ...

We love to cruise! We chose this 14 day cruise with HAL because of the number of days at sea and the closer proximity to where we live. The ports of call were great--the Sea of Cortez, San Diego Santa Barbara, Victoria and Vancouver. I dislike writing negative reviews. We will always make the most of our cruises, and generally make our own fun. Here is what I wrote on the survey to HAL. ...

Haven upgrade was well worth it!

Review for Norwegian Jewel to Mexican Riviera

NCL sent us an email before the cruise and offered us a chance to bid on an upgrade. I figured why not and bid on a Haven 2 bedroom villa, even though there was only 2 of us traveling. Any woman would love to have the master bathroom to herself! We got the upgrade! Haven was everything you thought it would be. If you have the opportunity, go for it. Only 2 complaints. The Jewel’s Haven is ...
