Excellent Experience by melissachang

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

Excellent cruise if you want to spend a lot of time with family. Friendly staff, clean interiors. Not too impressed with the spa and its staff but over all experience was wonderful. Highly recommend Holland America.

Good Cruise - Some Issues by nknupferlaw

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I loved being on the cruise and the people I met, but the customer service was terrible despite the fact that the servers, waiters, stewards were all exceptional. I will go back again and in fact booked my next cruise while on board but was able to pick my own room this time and will to have two men outside my window all day!

Great service, older crowd by paulapowell4631

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Very nice ship but I wanted more activities on board. This is a cruise for older people, service was excellent. Entertainment was good but all done by 11:30 and things closed by midnight. Nice restaurants and dining, shows were good. Ports were ok.

Relaxing Caribbean Cruise by pati227

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

This was a mother/daughter cruise. My daughter is a state social worker and needed to relax. This cruise fit the bill! We enjoyed every minute of it especially the spa! We had so much fun that we are planning to hopefully go the same time next year to Cuba!

Best Beach I've Ever Seen! by melissascheck

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The Oosterdam brought us to beautiful locations and was enjoyable to sail on every day. We were comfortable, felt safe, and had a great time. The private island in the Bahamas was the best part! Absolutely stunning!

It was a great relaxing trip. Not for a younger, energetic crowd though.

Relaxing Getaway by rickm733

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

This trip was a wonderful getaway from the responsibilities of life. It was just nice to not have to worry about a thing! The food was excellent! The staff were so welcoming. The only complaint I have would be the entertainment and activities at night. I would have enjoyed more shows including dancing, or just different activities to be made available. Overall it was a great trip!

Anniversary Cruise 2019 by LisaG16

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We went on this cruise for our 35th wedding anniversary. We loved our room. We found the crowd to be older, and food to be just ok and the entertainment to be terrible. We loved all the ports we stopped in and kept busy there. We enjoyed the casino but were definitely looking for more venues/bands/musical entertainment as well as a nice stage show. It was difficult to communicate with the crew.

Excellent ship, Excellent Beaches, except for Jamaica. Shore Excursions = loss of money by berardiandre

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is very nice, with entertainment for all ages. Yes, it has loud music by the pool, but you will always find a quiet room to read a book or to chat with your spouse or friends. Excellent food. Negative points are the useless stop in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and the shore excursion to Isla Pasion, Cozumel. The beaches are nice in both places, but: a) Jamaica has nothing in far from being a nice and calm place like the other ports of call. Maybe other ports in Jamaica wold be better (Last year I went to Ocho Rios, which was much better). b) The beach in Isla Pasion is very nice but the food is really bad, the open bar is a scam, and the stay at the island could be 2 hours more - with no impact in the time to be back onboard.

Nice trip by sandc1987

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We are a married couple with 12 cruise experiences on multiple lines. We said we would not take Holland America again because of the lack of daily activities, but the price was good on this cruise so we tried it and were satisfied. We brought our own entertainment on board ( books, card games, puzzles, podcasts, video games etc) and this helped. We walked 3 miles daily on the ship ( nice promenade deck) and played some pickle ball ( equipment and facilities were not optimal). We enjoyed the anytime dining and evening entertainment. We upgraded to a suite and I feel this really improved the quality of our trip. The balcony cabins I saw on this ship were quite small and the balconies one of the smaller in the industry for this level. The support staff on the cruise were excellent and I never had a bad experience with them. I did have a bad interaction with the excursion planning staff and I recommend not using them. The naturalist was knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed his lectures. I wish there were more. We booked this cruise to enjoy BB King's blues club, but the singers were focused on R and B and soul. More blues please! I can not recommend the Billboard piano players. As a singer, I found them both weak and their harmony frequently off. Plan to be in your cabin early as the activities die off after 11 pm but with a nice balcony, large flat screen TV and in room movies, this was pleasant. Enjoy!

Great service but underwhelmed by other things by rroy1152

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall, I would give it a B rating. Not impressed with the ship itself, the entertainment was not impressive (except for the musical revue). The food was excellent and the service was among the best we've experienced.

Once in a lifetime by Onceinalifet

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Just not my cup of tea. But you don’t know up until you try. The activities were just not of interest for the most part. The crew were all very wonderful though.

A nicely paced cruise by ryanpacz

Bayu (dining area) and Funghi in the spa were memorable and wonderful. OUr room stewards were the best in the business.
