Cruiser386's Past Cruises

Amsterdam

September 2016 - Amsterdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska - The Last Frontier

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.

Zuiderdam

January 2016 - Zuiderdam to Caribbean

Holland America slipping a little bit.

In general, I would say Holland America is slipping a little bit.  Their cruise ships are aging and the quality of the overall decor reflects it.  The food was not quite up to prior standards and we missed some of our favorite events including Chocolate Desert Night and Champagne Night.  The Piano Bar was still excellent, but the shows (except for the comedians) were below par.  The excursions were well organized, but the destinations were not too exciting.  The Pinnacle Grill was excellent.  Finally, the cruise line needs to put an end to the saving of deck chairs in the pool areas.  They should require that all deck chairs be occupied within 15 minutes or made available for other passengers who ARE present.

Cruiser386's Tips

Amsterdam Amsterdam - Main theater shows were great. Piano bar not so much.
Zuiderdam Zuiderdam - Piano Bar was outstanding, but arrive early if you want a seat. Pinnacle Grill was excellent, but you need to reserve early for best seating times.
