We are just getting off... by atkins4sc

Sail date: /
Ship: Rotterdam Retired

We are just getting off Rotterdam for a 7 day Western Caribbean Cruise. We really enjoyed this ship, the staff and service. She is well maintained and was constantly being cleaned. I really like the smaller ship and how easy it was to get on and off the ship. The Lido food was really good, as were the specialty restaurants. The ports were good and in Guatamala an excursion would be a good idea. We are in our early 50's and were right in the middle of the age range. We met many super nice guests and left feeling very relaxed.

Best family vacay ever! by savageshannon

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We loved the cruise culture that Holland America provided. My small family were able to relax and have a calm and enjoyable time together. Plenty of interests available to all of us. Wonderful wonderful cruise line and the destinations were fantastic! Unforgettable experience. The cruise ship decks were just beautiful day and night.

Very relaxing cruise; great cultural excursions by woodnpotter

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was a short get away from the cold weather. The choice of this itinerary was because we wanted to see some cultural sites and did not care about beach and bar visits like the cruises to the islands. We would certainly consider this one again. The ease and laid back relaxation is what we have come to expect and appreciate from Holland America.

Lovely Warm Cruise! by sadbramer

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean

Except for the Lanai Room issue, our cruise was a welcome respite from the cold winter of Upstate New York. Wish we were back on one of those islands!

Do not take holland America cruise. The stops are crappy, the cruise line is out for your money.they charge extra for almost everything. I will never cruise on HAL. Again. by jnjsanborn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This cruise is all about the money. Our first 2 cerise's were excellent. Since then it has been all down hill. I wish I picked a different cruise line. From now on I will stick with Viking cruises. They treat you with respect, not after your money.

14 day Caribbean cruise from... by Bogeyguy

Sail date: /
Ship: Rotterdam Retired

14 day Caribbean cruise from Tampa. Very disappointed with this HAL cruise. Poor selection of food at Lido, same food almost every day, and never got. Almost have to beg to get some extra portion. Lack of fun daily activities. Short duration for activities that they had. Room attendants were outstanding as they always are. They kept the rooms and ship White glove clean.

Great Experiance by 1jackiose

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean

I would take Holland again if they priced themselves accordingly. They are priced around Celebrity which is a superior service, I would rate Holland above Princess and Carnival.

Very disappointing by Butlerjd11

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Room noise was horrible but room Steward was awesome. Everything was so expensive and not much in ways of activities! Overcharged so they credited us as we printed statement while on board. Final bill they took credit back off without telling us. Still waiting on refund. No apology besides a 6 pack of beer to our room for all the horrible noise we endured!!

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The service was magnificent. The food ok. The buffet had very little options. I booked this cruise becyit was close to home. I will stick with Celebrity and Viking cruises there is no comparison. They need to refurbish the Rotterdam

Good cruise by halfbaldone

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Rotterdam Retired / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Good trip. I would travel on the Rotterdam again. Several happy hour specials made drink prices reasonable. It is an older crowd on Holland America but it does make for a more relaxed environment. There were still some younger couples and a few children on our cruise. No problems with loud drunks. The kitchen line where they serve you what you want is way better than people trashing the buffet like I have seen on some cruises.
