Koningsdam

June 2016 - Koningsdam to Europe - Northern Europe

NORTHERN EUROPE KONINGSDAM CRUISE

THE SHIP WAS LOVELY, BUT NOT SPECTACULAR

we were excited to be on a new ship

but surprised that is was not special

 

the itinerary was great, but would NOT recommend booking tours thru the ship

A BIG MONEY MAKER

other guests booked thru other companies and paid half

we had a mobility scooter and we were told that St Petersberg was not ready for them....we felt forced to book a private tour-$1,000 for one day

we were given the impression that we had to book thru Holland if we di not have a visa-NOT TRUE!!!  Spoke to many other guest who booked private tours and paid half.  VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW

We felt as many others felt that Holland Line is trying to save money

Entertainment and activities could have been better.  Going to all these ports were very meaningful.  No one lectured about any of the ports.  The guest on this ship were well traveled and felt many activities were to make sales to make money

the specialty restaurants were pretty good-did not love the dining room menu

WE HAVE BEEN ON AT LEAST 10 CRUISES 

so we are comparing this cruise to other experiences

MANY GUESTS AGREED
