Mexico with the Melvilles 2018 by shelleythompson

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had a great time with our long time friends on this cruise. overall it was great, just a little disappointed that it being Valentines Day it was as if nothing was going on. They Showed a Animal Movie as the main entertainment that day. Hubby Loves Holland but I'm note so sure I do. Wait Staff were the best part of the whole trip and relaxing watching movies in my room.

Food and service great. Ports of call average but the hassle from the locals was not worth it.

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

This was a great cruise from start to finish. The ports it visited are really good ports. The food was excellent and the service we had was very good. Everything went very smoothly and we were really sorry to have the week end.

Get Price Alert

Holland America is now mundane and bottom-line cheap. by llghere333

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 59th cruise. Holland America was the Grand Dame of cruise ships up until a new president was installed 3 years ago. They are now a cheap cruise with serious crew cutbacks and elimination of amenities. Obvious emphasis is on bottom-line profit and less on passenger comfort and attention to the little things. They were once our number one favorite because of their appeal to older passengers and sedate amenities. Today, in our minds, they rank fifth along with Carnival by trying to appeal across the board to everyone and in the process have lost their branding. All of this was confirmed with fellow passengers who said they were disgusted with the decline in the Grande Dame and their lack of attention to the small things.

Enjoying Hawaii by Dhowardmbc

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Dream Vacation not so dreamy by khgebhart

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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!

Had a great time in Hawaii although the Pacific was a bit rough both coming and going (December). by gcampe

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was a long trip (18 days) with ten days at sea. The cruise ship was wonderful along with the islands but the days at sea were a bit long as the weather did not cooperate. But we're happy we did it and we had a lot of fun.

Great experience by vingod382000

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Relaxing Cruise. by lintesar

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Cruising done wrong by bamach1fan

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

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

Great cruise by irajraab

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

HAL on oosterdam (7 nights mexican riviera) by eskargo

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.
