Great itinerary, wonderful service

We booked the first 16 days of the Far East Discovery because of the amazing itinerary and we were not disappointed. From Singapore to Hong Kong, every port had something wonderful to offer. This was our 8th cruise ...

Bad Experience on the WESTERDAM

We were on this ship for 59 days. For 59 days we smelled SEWAGE in the corridors. The ship and its furnishings appeared rundown, worn out and FILTHY. Cabin ceiling ventilator was encrusted with dirt and dust. ...

I only awarded two points to Westerdam on the 31-day cruise because what little they did well should be expected on a cruise ship of their category, there were many things wrongly done and mishandled by their ...

Great Cruise. Well done HAL.

It was a great overall experience. The itinerary is what attracted us to this cruise as we had done China, Korea, Japan and a Transpacific to Vancouver in 2015 and this cruise offered new Asian ports - just the 16 ...

Westerdam was not very good

We've been on Holland American several times over the years. It was a far better cruise line before being acquired by Carnival. We were onthe old Niew Amsterdam and the newer one. We also cruised on Zandaam. ...

Great Itinerary, Kind Staff, But, If You Smoke, Read My Last Few Paragraphs

Disappointing SE Asian Cruise in Many Ways

Embarkation/disembarkation: generally quite smooth. Embarkation took a bit longer than other cruises I had been on, but it may be due to the departure procedure in Singapore. Dining: Lido buffet and Main Dining ...
