Such Fun We Had! by chetsbabe

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was our 13th cruise, the first with Holland America, and we really enjoyed the ship. A smaller and older crowd was just to our liking, and we also liked how easy it was to find a quiet place to relax. We had a Vista Suite balcony and loved the space and the size of the shower in particular. It was a real home-size shower instead of the little corner shower like on other balcony rooms. We had a wonderful time with our extended family of 12 total!

Panama Canal East to West by journalistmom

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

First time on Holland America in a while. Lots of lovely people, except for a few crabby Americans. Shipboard activities were sparse considering all of the sea days on this transitioning cruise. Loved the Test Kitchen, half the movies were good, and the entertainment at night was mediocre except for the comic magician and the singers/dancers. Harp lady and comic from Las Vegas were downright bad. Panama Canal was magical as were some of the ports. Too bad the cruise line is very interested in upselling you more activities.

Ultimate Panama Canal cruise! by Cruiser53265473

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

The Amsterdam is an elegant ship with service to match. The staff couldn’t be lovelier! Our vists to the ports of call went smoothly and we loved our at sea days as well! There were so many fun activities, especially the presentations by America’s Test Kitchens! The main stage evening entertainment was top notch. We also enjoyed the lounge entertainment by Adagio, the jazz quartet and Rafael at the piano bar. The dining room’s three course meals were superb in quality and choices. Exercise facility was good and the teakwood walking track outside on deck three was wonderful. We even tried acupuncture for the first time! So much to like! The library is an awesome place with a great selection of books as well. We chose open seating for dining and were always seated promptly at a table for two. Though we ate by ourselves we had plenty of opportunities to meet people. This was our first cruise of any length (more than 3 day’s) and we love Holland America!

14 days not enough by rlightner

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

We have taken this cruise (14 days) 15 times and it amazes us how it just gets better each time. We plan on going again twice next year. This was one of the best cruises so far. The captain got us very close to the Hubbard Glacier and we were able to stay there for an hour. Saw a lot of calving.

Wonderful Alaskan Cruise by ptownes

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

If you like to sail, this is a good cruise. We enjoyed the time on the ship as much as the ports as we were traveling with friends. Many people relaxed with a book near a window in a lounge. We like to play cards as did many others. Not much to do for children , but there were a few.

Excellent Alaska cruise itinerary, the embarkation and diembarkation process was smooth. We like the fact that we did not have to wait in a long line.

SOLID ALASKA CHOICE by johnfriedel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

Amsterdam is the perfect ship to visit Alaska. The ship's size allows it to dock at smaller ports and the 14 day itinerary was super. The captain's political comments should be kept to himself-not appropriate!

Amazing Alaska by floraagana

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

All together, I enjoyed this Alaskan cruise very much. May want to come back next year with some of my siblings. I enjoyed all the ports that we docked on. Some of the ports are walking distance to the town or a free shuttle bus that will take you to downtown are available.

Alaska is Worth the Trip by ret07jin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

This was our first Alska cruise and the trip was worth it. We chose it for the most places to visit in one trip at a reasonable price. Holland America Line was very good in taking care of us. The food was terrific, entertainment was PG rated, and the staff were courteous & professional. The only thing I would be careful is what ever you buy double check their packing because it may not survive the return trip. If seeing Denali is a must, consider a land trip, because we booked a flight from Anchorage and it was weathered out. We would consider going up there again with HAL but in late summer to see different variety of wildlife.

Excellent cruise by dwolf12708337

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska

We just finished this cruise and have no complaints. Food, service, and ship were all great. The ship is small enough to get around but big enough to have plenty to do. Shows were good, esp the ventriloquist, comedy show and the pianist. The Pinnacle grill is excellent. You can do lunch there on sea days for 10.00 but book early. Ports were great. We had wonderful weather, high 50's and sunny whole trip. The crew were all very pleasant and did there best to make sure you had a great trip. They have a large DVD library to use while you are on board and they have new movies in theatre and on tv to watch. Would reccomnd this cruise and hope to do it again. We have cruised on Viking, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and Carnival.

Fun Cruise by gregngail

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This is a fun cruise that we enjoyed. The ports and glacier viewing were great. The dining and the staff were wonderful. However, there are a few items that we did not enjoy as much as we have on other Holland America cruises. On this cruise, there were not as many activities and/or classes, particularly on sea days. There were no Microsoft classes. It was also disappointing to be in Victoria from only 6 pm to 11:00 pm. On future cruises, we will look for an itinerary that includes more time in Victoria.

escellent by Cruiser57299955

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: World Cruise

Everything was perfect and well thought out. The crew members could not be nicer. The only thing is the internet.We paid for 1000 minutes and wasted about 600 minutes waiting for loading.. They blame the satellite. Three years ago was the same thing. Princess on the other hand, gives you 2000 minutes per person and it works. Definitely they should be able to do something about.

Hawaii Cruise by afsafety1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Hawaii

Had a pleasant relaxing Hawaii cruise.   No icebergs encountered.  Good food, lots to do on ship.  Would have liked a longer stay in Honolulu.  Friendly crew, multiple shore excursions available at each port or just go ashore and do it yourself.

Hawaii before Christmas by tylkajm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Amsterdam / Destination: Hawaii

we loved our cruise. Cruising is new to us but enjoyed the people and cruise line.  Holland America treated us like royalty. We were younger than most of our cruise mates but found people friendly and socialable.  The 5 days at sea on way "home" seemed long- no internet to connect to our children!   Also, missed "Christmas" season mood setting! We will use holland America again. Also, was a good price and Dorthea our agent was very helpful!
