Not as good as expected..
"There were around 2000 passengers all waiting to board, in a small terminal with very few seats, no access to water or food and nobody who seemed to know what was going on or how to organise anything.We breathed a sigh of relief once we were actually in our cabin, until finding that we had to actually attend a muster on deck; this was another hour standing (again whilst no-one seemed to know what was supposed to be happening) but in the sun this time...."Read More

We always bring our fun so....... Anyway, here are some thoughts on this adventure. Ship is 20 years old and showing her age. Didn't stop the fun. Beds were comfortable, water was hot and toilets flushed. Food in main dining room was excellent - I've always found the upcharge restaurants on HAL to miss the mark - the Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto's just aren't what they should - buffet was ...

One segment was about the line transporting immigrants from Europe to the US in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s. They decided to ...

We chose this cruise as it was offered to us at a discounted price due to our mariner status & casino offers. The fruit was old, meat chewy, food cold many times and many areas of the ship needs repair. We had multiple issues with our cabin and never got them resolved. We were very dissatisfied and unsure we will return to Holland cruise line even though we have 4 star mariner status. The line has ...
