Easter Island and more by dsquare

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The overall itinerary was fantastic, with Easter Island being the main drawing card. The stops in Costa Rica were disappointing because of road blockages most of the excursions were cancelled. The voyage southward toward the equator was rather cool with overcast skies in large part but when the ship got to Easter Island the weather turned great and remained so for the rest of the voyage. The captain made a great decision on the way to Easter Island by changing course to avoid a storm which made the voyage more comfortable and gave us great weather for visiting the Island. The voyage to and through French Polynesia was great.

Fraudulent advertised port-of-call at Pitcarin Island. by twendling49

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Poor cabin conditions at the start of the cruise and the fraudulent advertising/marketing of Pitcairn Island as a port-of-call made an otherwise enjoyable cruise disappointing.

Good Holland American cruise. by jrsox

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As this was our second time on the cruise we knew what to expect. However, it seems they have relaxed their rules for using the dining room. Rules were not enforced on a uniform basis. This caused our only problem on the cruise. Food, service and our room were excellent. Very relaxing with smooth waters. Would not recommend Sydney as a stop. Very small town with very little to do.

Wonderful but lots of pressure to spend more by CathR

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I was disappointed with the constant pressure to spend and buy more in the spa after I had already purchased three expensive spa treatments and special access to the thermal room. Vitamins, orthotics, soaking solutions, they just would not give up. Unfortunately, despite many other positive experiences with the food and service, this overwhelms my memory. I loved the service and the food was very good. There was lots to do and see.

Won!!erful experience by donnaboling

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is the first cruise we had taken in 15 years. Our experience with American Airlines and Holland America could not have been better regarding registration, documentation, etc. The staff was very friendly and efficient on board the ship. Canada is beautiful and weather was very pleasant. We actually registered for another cruise in 2019 because of our experience this time.

Maasdam New England/canada cruise by mrsbuckman

Verified Review

Maasdam is old and warn and in need of updating desperately. Service in the dining room, lido deck and bar by pool are extremely understaffed. Service is friendly but so slow and unsatisfactory!

Very enjoyable Historic Coasts cruise by brentlgoddard

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have taken 10 cruises on 4 lines but this was our first Holland America experience. We felt that, overall, this cruise included the best food and entertainment of any we have taken. The food was delicious. We especially appreciated that the desserts were actually sweet. The quality, professionalism and skill of the entertainers was superior to that found on our other cruises. The ship offers fewer options for fun (such as rock-wall, golf, water features, etc.) and the program offers fewer entertainment options. But it we enjoyed being mellow.

Good and BAD points by rhmoen

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very good itinerary. Lower staterooms needs to be brought up to date, for the $$ you spend for them. Better training for room stewards and wait staff and folks incharge of the muster stations.

We enjoyed the trip. The Maasdam is a lovely ship. The service and accommodations were wonderful. The food at the Rotterdam is phenomenal. My husband preferred eating at the Lido. I would recommend this ship and cruise to anyone.

This was a long cruise for us (31days) but it covered the South Pacific really well. The staff of the Maasdam really made the trip for us.
