Oosterdam

June 2017 - Oosterdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Cruising with Holland America

It is always a joy to cruise on an Holland America Ship. This time it was on the Oosterdam again. The room was excellent, service was excellent, crew was  excellent. I must add the food was also excellent.

Westerdam

June 2016 - Westerdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska on the Westerdam

A cruise on one of Holland America's Ships is always Excellent. I rate them excellent because they are always "trying" to do the best. Kind, friendly, hard working people trying to make our cruise enjoyable.

Carnival Magic

January 2016 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Magic to Key West

The time slots for embarking and disembarking worked very well. The 3 of us were in cabin 9418 which proved to be an excellent location. We utilized the anytime dining in the forward dining room and burger bar. Michael served our evening meals extremely well, great guy. Sea day brunches were very good. Oh yes, the Cruise Director was over the top, some refinement needed. Overall our cruise experience was very good. However, some of the little things were missing; No ice buckets in stateroom, no turn down mints, breakfast service in dining room was slow and the burgers on Lido were pre cooked and stored in oven rather than cooked at time of service. Enjoy the Galveston location, wish we had more and longer itineraries to choose from.

Caribbean Princess

October 2015 - Caribbean Princess to Canada, New England, New York

Carnival Magic

September 2014 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

First Galveston Cruise

If driving, reserve your parking ASAP. Covered parking is limited.

25+ cruises on 5 cruise lines.

As for the cruise. Stayed in a Spa Balcony stateroom, third stateroom from the front of ship. The Magic is one of the larger ships and has a very nice layout. We never got the felling that we had to walk from one end of the ship to the other, although we did. With over 3000 guest we did not experience crowds.

The ship was clean and our stateroom was well kept. Enjoyed  the Spa a couple of times. 

We endured the life boat drill in the theater, sat in the most uncomfortable seats that were flat bottoms and straight up backs. Last trip to the theater. Keeping in mind that Carnival is a Fun Ship, the food was very good.

Will cruise this ship again.

mkldkr's Tips

Oosterdam Oosterdam - The Oosterdam is a very nice ship, relax and enjoy the cruise.
Cruise Glacier Bay - As the Captain put it, "we cut donuts in front of the Glacier". Nice!!
Westerdam Westerdam - When booking, remember, Holland allows unrestricted smoking on balconies. Even cigars. If you do not smoke, sometimes your balcony is unusable.
