Great ship, a little too big for my taste. But everything was excellent: food, crew, captain. Holland america line is the best.
Check for viruses in the country you are about to visit.
Do not book a cruise early with Holland America. I thought I had gotten a good price for this 28 day cruise and booked it 10 months prior to sailing date. I was requested to pay in full and informed it was non refundable. I subsequently saw prices drop $450. per person or $900. for the cabin. I notified my travel agent and subsequently informed that Holland America would neither match the reduced rate or provide any concessions- no shipboard credit; nothing toward gratuities; no wine or dinners in gourmet restaurants; no excursions- absolutely not one cent. I have taken 44 previous cruises on various cruise lines, and never treated so despicably unfair. I met another woman on board who booked 6 weeks before the sailing and had a higher class suite than I had for 1/2 of what I paid. They had my money for 10 months and would not refund a cent. .
If you like to dance, karaoke, and have fun, don't sail this ship
just do it
Probably dont be on the back few cabins.
Nothing. Just enjoy your time.
Enjoy the buffet. It was one of the highlights. Don’t count on internet working. It was the worst we’ve ever encountered on a cruise.
don't sail with Holland America unless you like being bored and spending money
Take a different ship.
Don’t forget your belongings. If you do, you won’t see them again.
Get a suite or balcony, don’t waste the chance for great sightseeing or just to sit outside and read, listen or watch.
Nobody on the Lido Deck Bow Balcony, perfect for Glacier Bay Day
As always enjoying yourself is taking the best of every day and forgetting about any daily small aggravation
I gave extra $200-300 tips by playing on the casino machine, my wife enjoyed it much
Will never travel Holland American or on the Westerdam ever again!
