Couldn't Ask for Anything More by marinellidon

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Having sailed with Holland-America before, we knew the clientele would be older and so we were prepared for the walkers, wheelchairs, and even for the old folk who seem to find disagreement in any and everything. Consequently, it is the professionalism of the Holland-America staff that impresses us to no end. Furthermore, the ship is magnificent, the culinary offerings terrific, and the itinerary superb. Truthfully, if you have a lousy time on this ship it is most likely of your own making.

Great trip to the Fiords of Norway by emmdas07

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I would say that our stateroom attendants were particularly good and helpful with out specific needs. We spent most of the time in Entertainment venues at Lincoln Center Stage and almost none at the other entertainment venues. We did very few on board activities but did enjoy Americas Test Kitchen several times. We enjoyed meals in the dining room on Level 2 and are pleased with the service we were provided there which was excellent. As for the itinerary it would have been better if possible to spread the sea days more evenly as they were concentrated more toward the end of the cruise and there was only one port on the way back from Honningsvag.

Beautiful Ports, Beautiful Ship by carolbletz

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is beautiful, clean, well appointed. The food service, quality and taste was superb in the dining room and specialty restaurants but close to poor on the Lido. We have been on other Holland cruises where the Lido food and selection/taste was far better. We ate breakfast in the Lido when we were in port and anxious to disembark to enjoy the stop but that was it. Badly organized too.

Disappointing Experience on Koningsdam by mjdb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were very disappointed, Wi-Fi was very expensive, food was mediocre, HAL had every way they could manage to charge extra for food, services etc(even bottled water), bedding was dirty and clinically unacceptable,wine choices were poor quality ,guest services nice, but had every excuse as to why something was unable to be changed etc(especially intercom system ). We will never go on HAL again

Overall, I would go on this cruise again. We selected it due to the ports. It was a great vacation and going on a newer ship is always fabulous.

SADLY DISAPPOINTED! by jandan1954

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We decided to spend our 10th anniversary on this cruise. I bought this cruise and gave it to my Husband for his birthday. Our 10th cruise, a10 day cruise and our 10th anniversary, 10-10-10! Were we so looking forward to it. The ship was suppose to do something special on the first Tuesday we were on the ship for our 10th anniversary. Nothing happened! Not funny but the same thing happened on our Honeymoon with the same cruise line. SO SAD AND DISAPPOINTED!!! Need I say more??????

First time on a Holland America cruise by EricMiller

I would definitely go again, but I would not book a future cruise on the ship, way too expensive. Get a good travel agent and have them get you a great deal

Death in Paradise cruise by Kurt646

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We cruise several times a year and this was just a quick decision to escape the cold of a Phoenix winter in favor of something tropical. We both enjoy the British TV drama Death in Paradise and this was about the only cruise that got us to Guadeloupe where the show is filmed and the water is spectacular.

Double loop Caribbean Cruise on the Koningsdam by debclawson

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I went on this cruise with my 86 year old mother. I would enjoy it more if I went with my husband. My mother was not able to do many of the excursions that I would like to do and we'd already done the ones she could do.

Great food on a beautiful new ship by mike58363858

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall, an excellent cruise with a spotless ship, outstanding cuisine, very nice cabin, good service, and nice port calls. Just be aware that the alcohol, internet usage, and ship-based excursions are quite pricey. Still worth the booking and trip, though.

11 Night Wayfarer Caribbean Cruise by SHGH

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The most disappointing part of the cruise was that on day of embarkation we ran into seven problems and guest services and management was nonchalant about those issues. Even though the spa and our room had issues, most of the ship was clean and fairly new. The ports of call were nice. The food tasted okay but was lukewarm and really may be a health violation. Our other Holland America experiences were better than this one.
