Beautiful by robin56619173

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

Over all trip was fabulous. I do have a complaint on the nail service I received. There is a 14 day chipping guarantee. My nails began to chip on day 2. I would not have mentioned this, but 6 days later 4 of my nails are chipping. I would like to discuss a refund for on this service.

the cruise worked for us with my husband's physical limitations. Great room and placement on the ship and near elevators. Staff extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. They made the cruise ..special!

Cruise line was very comfortable and the service impeccable unfortunately due to adverse weather conditions we were unable to visit the Normandy ports but were compensated adequately for the disappointment....the food was not quite up to standard unfort. by normagill

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very enjoyable...it was made so by the good service of all members of the crew. It did cater to an older clientele.

Very Happy HAL First Timer by kristinagarl

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Embarkation/debarkation fast n easy; vista suite very nice; bars were great with no long waits; MDR very good and on point; Pizza bar best on boat so far; Lido buffet quite good, no trouble finding seats; no chair hogging on deck 8 aft pool area; Canaletto mediocre; Pinnacle Grill was spectacular food and service; great room stewards; not alot for kids to do but that's great so there isn't many kids. Great boat for relaxing and reconnecting with significant other. WONDERFUL VACATION OVERALL!!!

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by sugak33

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

I have told at least 40 people already about our trip on the cruise 🚢. I am guessing that they got the picture and want to try it.

Best family vacay ever! by savageshannon

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

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.

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

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.

Good cruise by halfbaldone

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Great Trip! by drbillsimpon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We went with two friends, both of whom were widowers. We all had a splendid time. One of the widowers had never taken a cruise before. He was convinced that this was THE WAY TO GO!!! We thank Apri Blais for all her help!

Relaxing Quiet Cruise by 16Tonya45

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

We all enjoyed this cruise and was happy with the ship. It was very quiet and relaxed. You won't find all the other exciting. loud entertainment that you may find on a carnival cruise as it is not geared toward young people. It just depends on what you prefer. Great staff and friendly service. Very clean, elegant ship.

It was a very unfortunate cruise experience. by mjq2004

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

The ship was a disappointment, it was understaffed, and the entertainment was very poor. The cruise missed a major port of call, I got severe food poisoning and spent 2 days in isolation. I would not recommend this cruise to anyone.

Not the best cruise by HALnever

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

Bad ship, bad ports of call, bad check in and bad disembarkation. As a HAL 3 star mariner, this was an embarrassment and will likely push others not to 1) cruise again 2) never to sail HAL. Bad crew decisions make a bad cruise for all.

Worst ever, won’t go back! by sctrtm

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Boring, activities were awful and limited, shows lackluster, food unimaginative and they served the same things, not enough places to get drinks, missed a port of call, missed our return flights due to heavy fog and they were unwilling to help with new flights or finding hotels to stay. Just one disappointment after another. Many things didn’t have to be bad, such as linens with holes in them or stains on them

unpleasant caribbean Cruise by hewang

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Compared with other cruise line, the buffet in this ship were very poor selective, everyday will have same kinds of food, the later the worse. Disembarkation was very slow and not organized. Total guest was 1400 but they used almost 1 hour for expedite people. They just wait and didn't call other group people even no expedite guest left. We were in the later group and stayed with most people in Main Stage room. The disembarkation of other groups were going on about half hour and then stopped and no one call on the next group. We went down to the outlet but did not see any guest there- the entire hallway was empty. The guard told us we could go out what ever our group was. At that time, we know a lot of people were still waiting for the call for their disembarkation.
