the ports were good,  the service was good, only one good entertainment BBKing.  The staff listened to concerns but did little about them.  The ship was clean the food was not, everything is served cant pick out which and how much counter staff just did not seem to understand what you wanted.  No sugar or stirrers with coffee service.

This was a relaxing trip.  The ports of call were interesting and easy to navigate.  Our Neptune Suite service was gracious.  The Zuiderdam is a lovely ship with nice amenities and a very helpful staff.

Transatlantic 16 day cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Long cruise.  Good guest speakers and culinary exhibitions.  Missed docking at one port (Horta) because of rough seas.  Had a few problems with structural noise at night and moisture (leaking) in passageways.  Food was very good and had a wide variety.  Pinnacle restaurant was good, but not outstanding.

16 Days of Pure Relaxation

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As seniors, we stay very involved at our retirement community having fun and

volunteering.  We were ready to unwind on our cruise.  We got a cabin with a veranda and  really  enjoyed our evenings looking at the sea and having a glass of wine.  The first 3 mornings I had breakfast in bed! 

The Zuiderdam was a nice mid size ship and offered excellent food and drinks in the dining room.  We had a table for 6 and enjoyed our dinner partners very much.

The entertainment was first class and we enjoyed the Crows Nest for reading

and drinks.  (If I could improve the ship, it would be to make repairs like rusty balcony and noisy partitions making flapping sounds and fix flooring in cabin bathroom.  I realize the ship is an older one but noted repairs could have made

my Rating 5 stars instead of 4.

I needed a vacation from this vacation..

The start of our cruise was nice and relaxing during the trans-Atlantic portion of this trip. The stops in France and in St. Petersburg were ill time because they stopped on major European holidays, May 1st (May Day) and May 9th (Victory Day in Russia).  Major museums and tourist attractions were closed.

The second leg or the Baltic cruise portion was hectic but fun because the places that we visited were all new to us.  We booked tours through Holland American and through a private tour company. We liked the private tour company better because they organized the tours into smaller groups. Eleven people as compared to forty. Holland American did have well organized tours going to Berlin. Much better than the tours they had going to St. Petersburg.

Transfers to the airport and our flight on SAS airline were exceptional.

Cruise could have been great but every port we visited the captain docked the ship with the port side of the ship facing toward the towns leaving the starboard side facing water.

10 days Panama cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My favorite part of the cruise when we enter the Panama Canal and we took a shore excursion where we are on the observatory room and see how a ship pass thru the canal.

I love the daily mass held on board

I love the direct luggage program they have from cabin and we saw our luggage again at final destination. We don't have to check in our luggage and we got our boarding pass and luggage tag from the ship. 

Using the sanitizer is not a mandatory when entering the dinning room which is a mandatory in all the cruises I have taken so far.

Generally you can board earlier than what guidelines tell you.

The special duty-free, discounted prices of items offered on-board were not so special or discounted at all.
