We were informed this voyage was the 2nd voyage for the ship since coming out of dry dock for restoration and refresh. While the company certainly did a brilliant job with the refit of the ship, they appear to have fallen far short of expectations in terms of customer service and dining. We had a truly awful experience on our cruise from Venice in early May, and based on this experience would ...

We were already in Europe on an extended vacation to see friends when we saw this cruise pop up at a discount price for last minute--two weeks away. I had cruised about 15 cruises, however, never on Holland America. I was afraid the crowd may be too old for us as we are in our 50's...however, the price and the stops convinced us to go. It was FANTASTIC!! Everything I have heard about Holland was ...

This cruise was the second half of a back to back itinerary across the Atlantic and then around the Med. (I`ve reviewed the first part of the cruise separately.)

This was an interesting surprise for me. Because of the back ...

In May 2010, five friends and I had the pleasure of going on a Mediterranean cruise, with two days pre-cruise in Venice, and a four days post-cruise in Barcelona. Through Holland America, we prebooked tours in all but two ports. Each tour was fabulous and flawless, and even the weather was perfect, although it rained one day in Venice, but that just made it more fun. The Westerdam had been ...

We flew to Venice through Vienna on Austrian Airlines from Canada. Three days in Venice prior to the cruise put us in the mood for Europe. We spotted the Westerdam on the date of boarding and were very impressed. The boarding was without incident, taking in the fact that we did not receive any documents and that was our first cruise. We were impressed with the cabin and I had little trouble ...
