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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

Haven upgrade was well worth it!

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
