Previous HAL cruises have been great, but disappointed this time

Our favorite part of a cruise is being able to relax.

The ship came into Fort Lauderdale from their Atlantic crossing from Barcelona and we understand there were 120 new crew members who started their contracts on this cruise.  As a result, service in the main dining room was not acceptable.  We had anytime seating around 545 pm, which we normally do, at a table for 6 and the first 2 nights it took over 2.5 hours to complete our meal.  As a result we could not attend the 8 pm show.  Not only did it take so long to get the meal, but almost every night the wrong meals were given so they had to move things around or order what was not provided.  I like HAL.  We were on the same ship in October last year and had great service, so I hope this is an exception,

Pacific Princess

May 2016 - 17 Night Panama Canal Eastbound (Los Angeles To Ft. Lauderdale) Cruise on Pacific Princess

Eurodam

October 2015 - 14 Night The Atlantic Coast (Quebec To Ft. Lauderdale) Cruise on Eurodam

A relaxing and enjoyable cruise

This was our 4th Holland America Cruise.  The staff is so pleasant, always saying hello when you meet anyone.

My only suggestion is that meals offer 1/2 or smaller portions.  Even though we asked for small portions, and was ensured that would happen, when the food was received there was no difference between smaller and regular sizes.  I think it would save on a lot of wasted food.

Thank you for a lovely vacation - starting to think about where to cruise next!
