Volendam

April 2017 - Volendam to Transpacific

Wonderful trans pacific crossing

It was a wonderful trans pacific crossing, very calm seas & nice weather....BUT

the food was the worst I have had on Holland America. You would think the with the ship leaving from Japan, good food items would be loaded. The only "good" items were the eggs.....wonderful golden yellow yolk color. The rest of the food was just bland, except that somehow they managed to put cilantro into almost everything. Every meal 2 or 3 items had it in it & also coconut milk. The food was just bland, nothing stood out & the deserts were awful, they all tasted like they were made from a package with "just add water".Imagine 16 days with less than desirable food.

Service on board was A+, as usual. Cabin service top notch, ship is easy to get around.The shows at night we hit or miss. The dancers were great, but the singers were off key & out of tune.

Star Pride

November 2016 - Star Pride to Caribbean - Southern

A+++++ ALL THE WAY

What a wonderful cruise. This is my 1st time on Windstar, and it's won't be my last. Everything was wonderful....and I MEAN EVERYTHING.I think the best part was that the ship is small, and so easy to get around, no long walks along endless hallways, you could get from any part of the ship or yacht as it is called to your suite in less the 5 minutes. The suites are well appointed, bathroom huge with 2 sinks & a full tub. Food wise was also A+, with the only exception of a pasta dish I had at lunch.The cookout on the top deck 1 night was not to believed....amazing....the staff is very friendly, always with a smile & a hello. I can't wait to sail on Windstar again.

Prinsendam

August 2015 - Prinsendam to Europe - Northern Europe

Shame on Holland America

This is the 3rd time I have sailed on the Prinsendam,and I think it will be the last.The ship is still very nice, but I can see cutbacks everywhere, mostly in the dinning room.The service was terrible,very long wait for waiters to come around,very long wait for food to be brought out, none of the food was hot, always tepid & the menu was just ok,nothing to rave about,Bread was very good,deserts were poor.

I was just not impressed
