18 days--11 of them with gale force winds not permitting us outside for days--people falling and getting injured with turbulance and getting sick--need I say more. Days on the Islands were great. Would I go to Hawaii again--yes--Would I cruise it--NO NO NO!

Enjoying Hawaii by Dhowardmbc

Had never cruised for more than 7 days before. Overall Cruise was very enjoyable and there was enough to do to stay busy. Wish there could have been better access to sports on TV. Only got Limited news stations. On demand movies and TV were good. Food was very good but slow service in main dining room was an issue.

Very good experience overall. Most travellers were seniors. Quiet and comfortable travel. Port stop at Samana was not a very good experience. Food and service was great.

We enjoyed the cruise but missed the music and fun that is on other ships Lido Deck during the daytime. We loved the BB King Club. We were there every night because the musicians were amazing.

Great time. Excellent ship. Terrific staff. Wonderful shows. Delicious food. Exciting ports and tours. Excellent Cruise Director. Cabin OK except for a slow sink drain that they could not repair. Fast computers and free printing. Easy check-in and disembarking. In general, my wife and I had a wonderful 21 anniversary cruise. We would take this ship again, gladly.

Book if you just like to eat with older crowd. Good food prepared with pride. Food was better than carnival or rci for sure. Spa hot tub was only hot tub with proper temp which cost me an extra 125 dollars

HAL on oosterdam (7 nights mexican riviera) by eskargo

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
it was a nice cruise. the staff was wonderful. although, for first timers, there was not enough information assimilated. gala nights were totally not followed. still, we will definitely cruise again but we would look for more incentives like onboard credit or prepaid gratuities.

HOLLAND AMERICA SHORE EXCURSIONS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT VERY EXPENSIVE WITH OUT OF DATE EQUIPMENT. MY DAD DIED ON THE SS VOLENDAM, 7/18/1950 FROM THE SAME UNACCEPTABLE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT AND STAFF. NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

Cruising isn't the same anymore by jaroneski

Please stop pushing products so much in your activities, it really ruined the cruising experience for me. I will have to be convinced to get on another Holland America cruise now unfortunately. The events were scarce and repetitive. It seems most people would rather sit in their rooms watching movies or staring out of the windows than go to another trivia, bingo or scrabble event.

Enjoyed seeing the sites of Alaska by ruthfobes2

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We enjoyed seeing the sites of Alaska, especially the glaciers, and the glacier Gardens. Our cabin cast a negative tone for the trip with all the noise and uncomfortable bed. It took them the entire week to help us with this problem. On Friday they moved us to another cabin. Because of lack of sleep I became quite ill when I left the ship. Not a good welcome home.

Good Food on Board by anneluck

Food was good, ship was small. The sauna was smaller than my bathroom. You should have kicked the male singers into the ocean because they just yell and not singing. I would rather listen to the waiter sing the birthday song.

Great room and staff, marginal dining by anyszss

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The Specialty and Fine dining was grossly misrepresented and 3 star at best. After trying the Pinnacle and Canaletto restaurants, we saw no reason to try the other two. The Canaletto was anything but a fine dining experience. It was just a section of the buffet dining area that was sequester in the evenings. Quality was very average at both. Some of the excursions were great and others not so much. We could have saved money and had a better experience in Victoria with the Bouchart Gardens by just taking a Taxi to and from the ship, arriving earlier, and skipping the fireworks.
