No thanks to , but Holland America pulled through! by Kansastravelers

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were told by HA that selected our cabin placement and it was the worst we've ever received right next to the engine. This was our third time using and our Fifth time using Holland America. Once we boarded the ship HA guest services did the best they could to give us a better room. We won't be using again.

Horrible embarkation by j13rogers62

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

After flying all night we arrived to check in at 10:30 am and board, hoping to get some sleep. Due to computer issues could not board until 3:30 pm. Especially frustrating with a 1 yr old in tow. MUST GET BACKUP SYSTEM!!!

A good time by JoeKnows

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

overall a very good cruise and a great value! Staff was very nice and accomodating. Captain was not very visible but I guess this ain't the Love Boat. Still...no presence at gala night that I know of. I felt rushed out of my room on debarkation day by steady intrusions at my room by staff. I get it that staff needs to turn the room but that's not really my problem. Don't rush the staff so much or hire more staff!

We were disappointed with this cruise after taking a HA cruise to South America. This ship was much larger but there were not much to do aboard except eat and shop.

Relaxing return from Hawaii vacation by Plesenski

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a very relaxing cruise because of the amount of days at sea. Perfect way to wind down after we spent a week in Hawaii in a rental house.

Reasonably good by WongSeeWai

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Quite enjoyable overall as I was traveling with family members. Good food, very good services, but there were not many activities on board which I like. Felt bored when on sea for long time. The soft bed is the worst part of the whole trip.

Great vacation! by SergioK

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We celebrated our wedding anniversary on board. The restaurant staff made a special cake for us, and sang an Indonesian song for us. We had dinner with the Captain and wife, which was one of the highlights of all our cruises. Thank you, Captain Draper! The cruise was excellent, just what we wanted. In retrospect, we liked the sea days just as much as shore days,We may be more. A few of the ports of call were far from the main attractions, which meant paying for excursions and spending lots of time on buses. I would have preferred fewer stops, more sea days, and possibly an overnight at one of the main cities, like Wellington, Melbourne or Hobart.

Awesome Cruise Experience by trmanus

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After this cruise, we are looking forward to the next cruise experience, perhaps Alaska or something in the European arena. Personnel on the trip were professional and every surface was cleaned and cleaned again.

Absolutely wonderful! Loved the ports, so much to see and do! Wish for more time in a couple ports. Would have enjoyed more ports in Australia. We had great weather which made a huge difference.

Nice, relaxing cruise by elliootjr4333

Verified Review

A nice, relaxing cruise. It was a definitely an older crowd. We're in our 30s and we felt like some of the youngest people on the ship. So don't plan on partying all night on the cruise.

Best Alaska itinerary by TwoDapperGents

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Alaska is a fantastic itinerary -- not to be missed. Holland America has excellent excursions and shore relationships that, I think, make it the standout choice. You'll find the crowd on board about what you'd find at a theme park or Vegas -- anxious to relax, not interested in dressing up, and traveling with the entire family in tow.

Spectacular Alaskan Cruise by shirkeyj

This trip made me want to go back. I would even go back on the same ship which I don't like to repeat trips. Alaska is fabulous and changing all the time.

Terrific Alaska Cruise by eli64357983

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

The weather was just fantastic for our early July cruise. Fortunately for us this was following three weeks of rain for all the prior cruises. Weather can cancel your excursions which is unfortunate, but you would rather that than waste your money not seeing anything or worse put yourself in danger. It's expensive to go to Alaska, but well worth it if your looking for tall mountains, wildlife, and great seafood. Also consider the land portion for those that really want to get closer to the animals and see more of them.

Review of cruise by bweidner

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

itinerary was great.

Could have used a wider variety of activities on sea days, as well as more variety day to day on the Lido menu.

Room stewards were awesome.

Bar staff could have been nicer.

median age of passengers was retired and up.
