Hawaii Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had a pleasant relaxing Hawaii cruise.   No icebergs encountered.  Good food, lots to do on ship.  Would have liked a longer stay in Honolulu.  Friendly crew, multiple shore excursions available at each port or just go ashore and do it yourself.

Hawaii before Christmas

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

we loved our cruise. Cruising is new to us but enjoyed the people and cruise line.  Holland America treated us like royalty. We were younger than most of our cruise mates but found people friendly and socialable.  The 5 days at sea on way "home" seemed long- no internet to connect to our children!   Also, missed "Christmas" season mood setting! We will use holland America again. Also, was a good price and Dorthea our agent was very helpful!

Hi the service was excellent. Food was good. I would have liked more at least one golf excursion. Too much of food contained alcohol.our room Stewart and waiter were extremely attentive.

The Amsterdam is a classy ship. Fancy dining room with amazing food. Great buffet with something for everyone. Nice fitness center with challenging spin classes and good equipment. Cabins are nice, with comfortable beds, adequate closet space. My grandaughter loved shipflix, for the sea days where the weather got a bit rough.

Storm-caused itinerary change works to our benefit

Due to storm, we dropped Sitka, switched Hubbard Glacier to Dawes, spent a longer day in Ketchikan, and a full day and evening in Victoria. Plus we avoided a storm in the Gulf of Alaska with 40'+ swells and 75mph wind gusts. Worked for me!

Relaxing beautiful cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This is a cruise for those who want to just relax and see beautiful country from the comfort of the ship or for those who want to explore Alaska from many other vantage points.   Loved the smaller sixe of the Amsterdam and will cruise on this ship again.

Alaska - The Last Frontier

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Favorite part of the cruise was the Ketchikan excursion via float plan to the Misty Fjords.  Dinners were excellent especially the formal nights.  Pinnacle Grill was outstanding for steak and lobster.  Room service was best for breakfast.  Lido deck was just OK for lunch.  Try the burger bar for lunch and don't miss the salmon bbq on the lido deck.

The ship was awesome, crew was very friendly and eager to help. The Ms Amsterdam was a good size to get around on. There were plenty of restaurants and bars. Our sit down dining experience was one of the best. The waiters and wine steward were excellent.

Worst overall cruise ever

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our favorite part of the cruise was the friendly staff.  That's where it ended.  When we checked into our state room it was not clean, items in drawers, etc.  The big window we paid extra for was above the bed, so no way to look out unless you stood up in the room?  The TV was too high and you could not use the remote from the sofa or the bed, you had to stand up to use it?  On top of that the programming was terrible and the screen was so dark, we got to listen to it instead of watching it.  A couple days in we smelled a foul order coming from our bathroom and found out there were leaks upstairs causing this.   When I went to buy a beverage program, I told the bar manager I wanted a package, but that my wife mostly drank tea, so I only wanted one.  He said don't worry man sign here and gave me two cards.  I said I only wanted one.  He said, " It's ok you pay and you are both covered, and I said are you sure and he said yes.  When we got our bill we were charged two drink packages for $361.83 each.  When I challenged it, they said sorry.   The food in the extra value restuarants was great.  The Lido deck food sucked.  I have never seen so much over cooked food.  I felt like I was eating leftovers everyday.  This was our 14th cruise for our 36th anniversary and only the 2nd cruise we were disappointed in.  I have more examples of how Holland America is a cheap cruise.  The value for the dollar is just not there!

For those who like a drink before dinner, happy hour is nice. Buy 1, get 1 for $1.00. Nice to have a Catholic priest on board.
