HAL not on their game!

Review for Zuiderdam to Mexican Riviera

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. ...

Background: Nov 2021 we went on our second HAL1 week Mexican Rivera cruise on the Koningsdam from San Diego. Fun, high energy good cruise. Would repeat. In June 2015 we were on our first Holland America cruise on the Zuiderdam for 33 days: 29 ports, 13 countries from Barcelona to Rome. Inside cabin. We had a wonderful time with the ports, fellow cruisers, food, music etc. we would ...

I relied on HAL's reputation for excellent food and service and it's reputation for activities for adults and entertainment on previous very long cruises. This cruise was 35 days long, with many, many sea days. I was soon disillusioned. The food was almost always served lukewarm and , for example, never was the toast at breakfast in the dining room served even remotely warm. Frequently, ...

Holland America Zuiderdam 27th February 2022 Reviews are tricky at the moment as the Covid story still affects everything and some criticisms are because of this but I have ignored all Covid excuses in the write up. The cruise was from San Diego to Hawaii then on to French Polynesia then San Diego; 35 days with about half at sea. Being met at airport; getting into hotel; transfer to ship; ...

This was supposed to be a "special sailabration cruise" Nothing special about it! They take your money and make changes at the last minute blaming covid. You never knew you were on a sailabration cruise until the very last day. Lido deck was very boring. No entertainment except a DJ. playing music a few hours everyday. 5 very boring days at sea. Entertainment at the phantom theater was like ...

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, ...

We chose this cruise for convenience. Direct flights from Vancouver, British Columbia, been to all the ports so not worried if ship was denied docking, familiar with Holland America historical “no touch” buffet. It ticked our boxes including vaccination requirements. We enjoyed our cruise but there is definitely a difference in what a British Columbian thinks are safe Covid protocols and what was ...

We took this holiday cruise with my elderly parents both of whom were using scooters while onboard. The crew was wonderful and can't say enough good things about our dinning room waiter and his assistant. We were disappointed in the lack of holiday festivities onboard during the cruise as there was 1 deck party during the entire cruise on New Years Eve but nothing on Christmas Eve. My biggest ...

Horrible Cruise on the Miracle

I planned a 50th Birthday cruise for my husband and I. We did research on Carnival's website thoroughly about Covid, found that you required a 48-72 hour negative test for Covid. We thought that was a tight time frame to expect a result back so we got our test 72 Hours before. It was negative. We have our vaccination and booster shots as well. Upon entering the FIRST initial waiting area we ...

First cruise back since January 2020. Only 705 passengers. We splurged and tried Aqua class for the first time and LOVED Blu. The crew was outstanding and everyone was always smiling and greeting you. They were happy to be back at work and we were their happy guests. All the food on Oceanview is plated by the servers. I saw zero instances of anyone attempting self-serve. We particularly ...
