One of our best cruises... by garnerp1

Sail date: /
Ship: Eurodam

One of our best cruises yet! Totally different vibe than Carnival, which was a good thing. Since we went to Alaska our views from our balcony and ship itself did not disappoint. It was easy to get around and the daily activities were nice. Staff were friendly and helpful as always and the food was good. Couldn’t ask for a better first time on Holland America.

Great Cruise to SE Alaska by nwgal

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

I highly recommend an Alaska cruise if you love beautiful scenery. Holland America's clientele may lean toward the older crowd, but that was fine with us. I appreciated the ship's elegance and the focus on HAL's history of cruise line service. The pictures from their archives that line the walls of the hallways are fun and interesting. And although we were not the highest spending passengers on board, we still received great service and attention.

Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Will have more photos when I have time to edit. This cruise for us was about rest and relaxation and overall HAL made that happen.

The cruise was absolutely great. I would not get off the boat at Juneau only to go to the Red Dog Saloon and get back on the boat .

First time Alaskan Cruise by RogerCalifornia

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

Our first cruise and what a wonderful experience. We initially had concerns about seasickness, but no problem. There were plenty of things to do that kept us occupied. Outstanding food choices and service.

This was one of my... by alexisjulian

Sail date: /
Ship: Eurodam

This was one of my favorite cruises to date - my fiancé says this was his favorite cruise and cruise line yet! We loved the laid back vibe of the itinerary (Alaska), the chic sophistication of the ship decor, and the absolutely amazing food. What a treat! We will definitely sail with HAL again.

Wonderful Alaska Cruise! by kaystepp

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was my first cruise and I enjoyed it. I would like to take another cruise. I am sure I will take another one on Holland America. But I think I would like to try another cruise line just to compare. The ports we visited were very nice. The weather wasn't but that wasn't Holland America's fault. And although it rained on us it was never a real hard rain and it wasn't terribly cold. So I consider us lucky! Thanks Holland America for a nice vacation and a nice first cruise experience.

Great Weekend Trip by EdwardTravels

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

The One night cruises that HAL offers are great weekend getaways for local people. We took the train to Vancouver and got on the ship by 1pm. Had a great time and I highly recommend that people local to Vancouver or Seattle take advantage of these great weekend trips

Rethinking Holland America: It Seems to be a Good Ship Run by Management Consultants and Penny-Pinching Accountants by bfshea

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

We choose HAL because it's low key, we like Lincoln Center Stage, daily Catholic mass, and America's Test Kitchen. We paid extra for Neptune class, but besides having a bigger room don't know what it really gets you. Saw a lot of staff fawning over some cruisers (perhaps repeat cruisers), but then would not give others the time of day. In the end, the penny-pinching was obvious with food and entertainment, and the overall value was low: we are rethinking any future cruise with HAL.

Relaxing by terpohland

Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Hawaii

Cabin beside ours overflowed their toilet and put water up and down the hallway and into our cabin. The crew provided us with a temporary cabin while ours was being cleared.

Too many sea days. by carrie12

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

This was the fourth cruise on Holland America and by far the worst experience. We would think twice before booking again. On this trip, we realized that the guest experience wasn't as important as their profits.

Ship Ride to No where! by Elvis1952

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

This cruise was planned over a year ago because of it itinerary and to go on it and miss 4 ports. Not acceptable, and given very little in compensation. This I believe with all the other disappointing food and entertainment. We will not be going on Holland America again.

Good cruise ..in spite of by iathoma8

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

Good cruise. Due to Azipod issue, we were late leaving Kona, skipped Ensenada, and missed Victoria due to spending another day in San Diego . But Captain and crew made it a nice trip.

Where’s the Service? by robinfandfamily

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Mexico

So much potential for this boat, but it’s so poorly executed in the service department it just ruined it. It was simply a sad disappointment.

Calm Seas and Sunny Skies by fndannen

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

Eurodam: Big, newer, clean, comfortable ship for big water of Pacific. Crew and staff outstanding. Minimal miscues in food and service. Felt a little crowded, but our previous cruises have been on smaller ships with fewer passengers.

Good getaway by deeiannucci

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

We were not aware that Holland America was a "floating Nursing Home". I think passengers should be warned prior to booking that many guests are quite elderly requiring wheelchairs, oxygen etc.
