Review for Disney Wonder to Mexican Riviera

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 ...

HAL not on their game!

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. ...

Good cruise, but not worth cost of what you get vs. what you receive

We're platinum Disney cruisers and we've sailed all the ships. This was our 2nd trip on the Wonder. Embarkation - What a cluster. The San Diego terminal located close to Amtrak and you can easily be dropped off in front of the pier. Two Holland ships were in port on the same day. This meant that we had to go offsite for a required Covid test. From the beginning (port arrival) it was a mess. ...

Cruise was fun for the kids. Customer Service after the cruise was terrible

We took the grandkids on a Disney cruise and I feel the kids really enjoyed it. The food was slightly above the level of other cruises lines (Holland, Royal Caribbean etc). Entertainment was great except they cancelled the Frozen show for unknown reasons. We had an issue with our photo package when I went to download the pictures as soon as we got home so I called the customer service line to ...

We had a bit of a problem dealing with the 48 hour COVID Test required to board ship. We followed the HAL recommendation and ordered tests online 20 days prion to cruise. On Saturday before leaving home we went online and took the test via zoom with eMeD company, who immediately sent a e-mail to each of us, which we printed out and hand carried to the ship to expedite boarding. The EMED process ...

This is the time to cruise while prices and capacity are low-it won't last! On day two of our cruise the mask mandate was lifted for all areas except the casino, theater and health center-YAY!!! With low capacity there was never an issue finding a lounger by the pool, a seat in a lounge or a table in the Lido Market. The menus in the Dining Room were great-lots of options every meal, food was all ...

Nice rooms, excellent food, super-clean, but mediocre entertainment.

Koningsdam 2022 - Reality Check We just returned from a seven-day cruise from San Diego to Mexico on the newer Koningsdam cruise ship. Accompanied by twenty-two highly experienced travel friends from San Diego, this was our last-minute plan for New Year’s Eve 2022. • Ship Cleanliness: Two previous Cruise Critic reviews state the ship smelled of cigarette smoke and urine...which is not the ...

Lack of Service, Unlike Holland America of Old

After more than a ten year hiatus from a Holland America cruise, we decided to travel on a seven day cruise to Mexico. From the start of our first evening dinner in the dining room, there was a definite lack of service. Not only did we wait to get into the dining room, but after being seated, we often waited for another half an hour. One night we waited one hour for a drink with our dinner. ...

Positive experiences: -Beautiful modern decor in public areas and staterooms. -We love the Retreat Cabanas, a great value at $300 for the week. -Speciality restaurants are very good. The burger and hot dog bar stocks vegan meat substitutes, which was a big pleasant surprise for us. The pizza place, Dutch Cafe (order the triple berry), and Canaletto (try the risotto) were especially ...

We packed for the Mexican west coast destinations. I even checked the weather in each port beforehand. What I didn't expect, nor was I advised by Holland America is their policy on the current Covid outbreak. They did not test daily (as did Viking 2 months beforehand), but did require the negative Covid 48 hour testing before boarding. Their idea was to keep public areas, hallways, ...
