I would say it was a GOOD trip not a Great trip. by chromepate

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Totally enjoyed the cruise, but I think there are some issues to still be fixed with staffing (not enough waiters in bars) and embarkation, etc.

It was different but excellent given the circumstances of the day. by Realtall

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam

This was a great cruise in spite of the Covid-19 precautions. There will probably never again be a circumstance in which a 2,600 passenger ship sails with 800–900 guests. It is sad to see the impact of the pandemic on the Caribbean islands. Hopefully, they will rebound soon but I suspect it will take some time.

Best of the Best! by joem124

The ship and crew are at the top of their game. Weather was perfect and there were no children on board so pools were quiet and not polluted. Exc lectures outstanding.

Great Cruise by Mfoxie

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Nieuw Statendam

Was a wonderful. More upscale than the other ships I've cruised on. It was such a great experience, I hope to be able to travel again soon. Was concerned about Covid protocols, but masking and sanitizing worked well. Felt comfortable.

Caribbean Cruise by dboreman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam

We were disappointed that we had to visit with the concierge staff to find out what we had purchased as our package on board. Having said that, we really enjoyed the room we had, the food and entertainment on the ship.

Beautiful ship and outstanding cabin and wait staff by smlri

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Enjoyed this beautiful ship and activities very much. Overall quieter vibe than some other cruise lines (no hairy chest contest at the pool or water slide and miniature golf) but I happen to like that for a change. Service staff friendly and helpful. Food excellent and great entertainment. Only issue was 24 hour light outside on veranda, which prevented our using it from sunset to sunrise. Guest services said it was for safety-stairwell above these rooms affected 8177 to 8155. So avoid them if you like to sit there at night. Also noise from bar above but cannot hear that in room.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall a lovely ship and great crew. The Lido food, Tamarind, snacks...all were really good quality. Very clean ship. Entertainment was blah. Felt rushed by the dining room staff. The room was awesome!

Never again by joe95607879

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Like I said earlier that shift needs a complete culture adjustment, the staff feels that they’re doing you a favor and there are unpleasant people there were a few that were nice but 95% of them had attitudes and felt like they were doing you a big favor by being there, never again will I Cruise on Holland America. It actually gave me a very bad taste about ever cruising again.
