Not a great trip. Two of our three suitcases were severely damaged just being loaded from pier to ship in Dover. Internet (WIFI) is extremely expensive and nonexistent while above the Arctic circle. Connections were iffy at best the rest of the time. Every port had too many ships so we never got a feel for the country and its people -- just for crowds everywhere. Holland America has definitely cut back on quality and staff in the past 10+ years so we were disappointed with the cruise experience in general.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was not as good as 10-15 years ago on Holland America. There was a definite lack of staff in the Rotterdam dining room at dinner every night.

Service and Staff

Staff we met were all nice\, just too few of them.

Cabin / Stateroom

The suite was very nice and the Neptune lounge a big plus.

Pros: The awesome fjords of Norway

Cons: The many other cruise ships in every port

Recommends Ryndam? No.
