Veendam

September 2016 - Veendam to Canada, New England, New York

Third Holland America Cruise

This was the most disappointing of the three HA cruises I have taken.  It seemed as if many of the service staff were either worn out or did not care based on a couple of problems we faced.  For example, the second day of the cruise our cabin was not cleaned until we called at 5PM to ask when it would be serviced.  There was no apology for the mistake nor any concern.  The 5th night of the cruise we did not receive the cabin refresh including next day schedule of activities nor the breakfast menu card which we wanted in our room due to leaving early for a tour.  Three mornings our toilet did not flush and received no explanation as to why this continued to happen.  I felt bad about not being able to flush but had no option available. We had open seating dining and that seemed to be daunting to be seated in a window area regardless of the night, it was as if you don't have a specific seating time you are a second class citizen.

This will probably be our last HA cruise since the amount spent is not equal to the service deserved/expected.Sad

philsand5748's Tips

Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala - We took the Tikal tour which was fairly expensive as it includes a one hour plane ride but it was worth it to us since who knows when we will see Mayan Temples again.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We went on a 4 hour sail boat tour that was great fun to see PV from that point of view. Did not spend time in town.
Panama Canal Transit - Fantastic, this is a must do trip for anyone who likes to visit an amazing architectural masterpiece. Glad we went to the lectures so we were better informed.
Celebrity Infinity Celebrity Infinity - Don't expect the moon unless you pay for a suite or Aqua Class accommodations. The ship is comfortable and easy to navigate. They did have news channels on the in room TV which was nice. Shore excursions were not all great.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - A place to come and stay for a week to really get a true feel. We had booked a tour but it was cancelled at the last minute and went in to town with friends instead.
Puntarenas, Costa Rica - Very disappointing tour. Spent hours on a bus and very little time at the Cloud Forest. There had been a large storm a week before which added to the issues but if that was the case it would have been better to have informed guests about the fact that it would be a long bus tour day rather than on your feet.
Colon, Panama - Another tour, Portobello and Agua Clara Locks, with too long on the bus and too little to look around.
Cruise Gulf Of St. Lawrence -
Cruise St. Lawrence River -
Veendam Veendam - Small ship that is easy to navigate and determine where the public spaces are located.
