Not enough shipboard activities

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
I like the size of the ship and that it was not very crowded. The recent Hurricane might have played a part in that. Too many sea days and not enough to do. The ship board activities did not very much from day to day.

Canada Cruise

I travelled with a group of 14 friends. If I had been on my own, I think I would have had a hard time filling the days with activities. The food was good, and the crew was excellent. My main complaint concerned the condition of the ship - very worn.

Perplexed

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
I guess this is where I explain the title "PERPLEXED". I don't know whether or Holland America is to blame. But, why do you show a line titled "Cruise St Lawrence River" after Quebec City in the photo above? It looked like to me like we had the full day of cruising the St Lawrence, just like we had a full day of cruising the "Gulf of St Lawrence" 2 days earlier!!!!! SO, I thought we would arrive in Montreal on Sunday morning, not Saturday morning. It cost me over $500 for hotel (booked the last day of cruising at VERY high cost) plus extra charges to change our flight arrangements. You do list the numbers on the left of the photo above so that it says day 7 on both lines, but why do you have to have the second line 7 of "Gulf of St Lawrence" to confuse me???? NO REASON!!!! Or, you would have included a line for each of the other stops possible saying, "Cruise Coast of Nova Scotia!!!! It's an ERROR, for sure. Someone owes me compensation for $500, either or Holland America, whomever is responsible for this OBVIOUS error!! Or please explain to me how "Crystal Clear" this is. Again, WHY is that line even there??????

All in all, one of the best ships, crew and overall experience I've had. A bit more TLC on the ship, and it would be perfect. I will sail Holland America again.

All in all, it was a great cruise. Reasonably priced and a good value. We totally loved it. We especially enjoyed the excursions and the dinner service.

The 4th floor was easy to move around the ship. Elevators were never crowded and real close to our cabin. Also close to the Medical Services. Thank goodness we didn't have to use them.

Don't book an outside cabin in the aft section.

On port/tour days its much faster to eat on the Lido deck than wait in dining room for fine dining
