Celebrity Silhouette

December 2016 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean

Bad food, worse treatment.

It does not matter what you request, they will give you what they want to. Table for 2, because of a handicap, give a table for 6. And make sure it is all the way in the farthest part of the room.. Hide all the things you are suppose to get with your extra paid for room, and make sure you don't get them until the end of the trip.Don't try talking to the employees because most of them don't speak English, or pretend that they don't understand you. After 12 trips with other companies,I  think I have had enough experience to tell when I have had really bad treatment and even worse cold food. On Christmas we were forced to listen to some kind of Arabic music played in the buffet. Great Holiday.!!!

Oosterdam

November 2015 - Oosterdam to Caribbean - Southern

Very nice cruise, terrible food.

The room was great. Very comfortable. Our room cleaners and the rest of the workers on the ship really made an effort to make sure everything was the best for their customers.  The only complaint  we had was with the food. It seems that Holland America was trying too hard to be unusual in their choice of dinner menus. I am not a fan of "pork cracklins" or "sweet breads".  I am old enough to know and understand what those things really are. The cheapest, lowest form of leftovers from killing the pig that there is. I guess that way the shipping company can save a lot of money on real meat and fish. I am waiting for them to tell me that "mountain oysters" is a real treat.For your info, its pig testicals.. Thank goodness for the salad bar. If this is what Holland is doing with the food, I will look for another cruise line.

chiefredmann2's Tips

Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - Don't buy any premium packages, because you have to beg for your drinks etc. and you'll get them the day before you leave.
MSC Divina MSC Divina - Do NOT waste your money !!!!! I felt like I was on a cattle car. Shoving, screaming, rude passengers. You take your life in your hands if you take the elevator.
Eurodam Eurodam - You couldn't ask for a better crew and a cleaner ship.
Oosterdam Oosterdam - The ship needs a lot of work. It's very tired and worn out. Rust everywhere. The ship is suppose to go into dry dock soon.I just wish it had happened before we took the cruise.
