Nieuw Amsterdam

July 2017 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Wonderful cruise

This is our second Holland American cruise...and won't be our last. The cruise experience they provide is outstanding. The food is wonderful...even the desserts which, too frequently on cruises are pretty but tasteless...these were wonderful! The service was excellent! We loved the spa! We have already booked another passage with them!

MSC Divina

November 2014 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Eastern

I wish that there was a 2.5 star review

Mixed reviews on this cruise.  First the good:  They had, hands down, the absolute best entertainment that I have experienced on any cruise.  I hadn't expected opera and classical music, and was delighted that they provided both...and great quality in both.  Also, the shows that they produced were very professional...a lot of times cruises depend on sparkle rather than talent in their shows.  This wasn't the case.  Service was wonderful and the ship was beautiful.  The bad:  The food was only so-so...we prefer buffets for their casual atmosphere.  On this ship, the dinner after 8:00 was mostly pizza and burgers.  The design of the ship made it impossible not to be in a crowd of people constantly.  There were too few bathrooms off of the main activity areas so that people had to line up.  The design of the single buffet caused traffic jams and again constant exposure to crowds.  The "jazz" bar played wedding reception music...not jazz...and they played the Cher concert at least once a day, every day, on the big screen.

pollocktoni's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - Probably our own fault since we stuck to the city tour. Go outside the city if possible.
MSC Divina MSC Divina - Make sure to book an outside balcony cabin to escape the crowds and make sure that you are on deck 13 since it is easier to run down to your own bathroom from the activities on 14 than to wait in line for the single stall bathroom there. Don't miss the evening shows in the theater.
