NORTHERN EUROPE KONINGSDAM CRUISE

Sail Date: June 19, 2016

Reviewed: 5 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

THE SHIP WAS LOVELY, BUT NOT SPECTACULAR

we were excited to be on a new ship

but surprised that is was not special

 

the itinerary was great, but would NOT recommend booking tours thru the ship

A BIG MONEY MAKER

other guests booked thru other companies and paid half

we had a mobility scooter and we were told that St Petersberg was not ready for them....we felt forced to book a private tour-$1,000 for one day

we were given the impression that we had to book thru Holland if we di not have a visa-NOT TRUE!!!  Spoke to many other guest who booked private tours and paid half.  VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW

We felt as many others felt that Holland Line is trying to save money

Entertainment and activities could have been better.  Going to all these ports were very meaningful.  No one lectured about any of the ports.  The guest on this ship were well traveled and felt many activities were to make sales to make money

the specialty restaurants were pretty good-did not love the dining room menu

WE HAVE BEEN ON AT LEAST 10 CRUISES 

so we are comparing this cruise to other experiences

MANY GUESTS AGREED

Cabin / Stateroom
nice, best of all were the help-they deserve the most accolades
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
DAYS AT SEA WERE NOT EXCITING
activities to make money
Entertainment
Service and Staff
THE SERVICE STAFF WAS THE BEST PART OF THE CRUISE
Food and Dining

Tip

we paid double for excursions
when we compared with other guest who are very savvy travelers

you do not need to book thru Holland to go into Russia-rip off
