Quick getaway by mloinvegas

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

We do this cruise at least once a year just to go to lunch at some favorite spots. The walking tours are a good way to see the cities, if you are a first timer. We cruise here so much, that we prefer to taxi around, except in Mazatlan. There, a group of expats are on hand to give directions and provide info. We “walk the blue line”, an actual painted line down the middle of the streets, to our lunch destination. A very pleasant and safe amble through the neighborhood.

Pros and cons by Cruiser81345594

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

After doing six cruises with NCL, I was bored on this ship especially because NCL does a great job for solo travelers and Holland America does virtually nothing.

No Activities or Production Shows by Akay4401

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

The cruise provided us with a good weeklong getaway. But, there was little to do well on board. The cruise director did very little to make a weeklong holiday cruise special. It was Christmas and Hanukkah week. There could have been a holiday-themed production show on the main stage. The holidays were acknowledged in the daily printed schedule of activities, but that was all.

Relaxing Trip by dtigerbear

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

One of the best cruises we have been on. Better daytime activities, more entertainment (have some during the day), and better communications would improve the experience.

Won't be traveling with Holland again anytime soon. by Kristi27

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

SO disappointed in Holland!! The lack of new onboard activities, the bad food, and the lack of communication will have me looking to other cruise lines in the future. You have gone way too far downhill to waste my money with you again. I would have rather stayed home than be on this cruise and that is the saddest statement and the saddest to feel about spending my hard earned money on my 1 vacation this year. Not happy whatsoever.

One week cruise to Mexico by dhkatz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

Older ship, but pleasantly serviceable. Good cruise for a short visit to Mexico. Only visited 3 ports. Three full days at sea allows for a relaxing trip.

Comedy of Errors Cruise by rvicki

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

The cruise was rather disappointing because we lost a port because the ship broke. I fell twice on one excursion, my husband got sick on the last day. It just didn’t turn out as planned. It also rained for the 2 days we were stuck in San Diego for the repair. The port was canceled and excursions were canceled for the port we did go too. It was a comedy of errors. Oh well

Sadly, did not measure up to other cruises and lines by JedDavis

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

Not the cruise for you if you are looking for nightlife and excitement. Very much the cruise for you if you are seeking peace, solitude and entertainment that is geared toward a more mature audience.

It was the first cruise I’ve taken alone. Was nervous, but that soon was replaced by enjoyment and relaxation.

Best Trip Ever by scifikids1985

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oosterdam / Destination: Mexico

This was the best experience of ours in a very long time. There is nothing like taking a cruise with Holland America. We will be doing this again as soon as possible. I can't believe it took us this long to take this trip.
