Adventures in South America by tlwehagen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: South America

I would recommend this cruise to people. However, I would provide a training course on how to survive it without getting frustrated.

Incredible South American travel experience by emartin53

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

This 33 day cruise was perfect. It was hard to return to reality where I actually had to make my bed, cook my food and do my laundry. I have so many wonderful memories and made some new friends. I would do it again and want to go on another long cruise in the near future.

OK, not the best cruise or service received of our 5 HAL Cruises since 2008 by TuneyGA

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Unhappy with service from Delta . Misleading naming since it is an independent travel agent. Also Booked accommodations were not as anticipated. Required additional expense to upgrade. Airport transfers were not included with flight bookings.

Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

5 Star experience across the board!! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit the Northeast and Canada. Most of the cruisers with us were older and almost no kids. Food was fantastic, everything and everyone was just awesome!! Thank you Zaandam crew!

early fall getaway by rabbitrunnfarm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

we booked last minute (2 weeks prior to sailing) Had a great time. we drove to montreal-apx 625 miles from Wooster Ohio. We will cruise Holland America again. We liked the size of ship-like our 1st cruise in 1991. Been on a couple of mega ships-4000 pass.- we perfer the 1500 pass. size.

More like a 6 night cruise by aconners63

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

I know emergencies happen, but it should have been handled differently. HAL did not care one bit about the passengers. There were many elderly and guests with special needs. No questions were asked. If you did not get on the school bus you were completely out of luck. No water - and 1 stop at a rest area after 2 hours. Many busses were there and the lines were long. This final impression of the cruise does not reflect well on HAL.

family reunion 2019 by cherylbarsness

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

The food and drink on the ship were just satisfactory. We really did not like how complicated the drink package was as to what we could drink on our package and what was not included in the package. The spa was extremely overpriced. The cabin cleaning staff were exceptional!

Great time! by ramseyj7549

Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Nice, easy going cruise without a zillion people in every port. Didn't like losing valuable time in Quebec.

Pretty cruise through Canada by pc93

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Cruise was good, but caters to older clientele. Food was fine and staff was excellent, they went out of their way to be pleasant and friendly. Probably wouldn’t go on this line again unless itinerary was only one that matched my particular needs.

Loved Canada and New England by MJLovetocruise

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

We took this cruise because of the itinerary. The ship is fine, we would sail on the Zaandam again, but it wasn't my favorite ship. There are things to do onboard, but it is limited compared to the larger ships. The service and food were very good. I loved that in the buffet, the staff served most of the food instead of guests helping themselves. Not all guests are diligent in washing their hands.

Very disappointing by chips323

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

The food, ship, cabin and excursions were all very disappointing. Our steward was excellent, but the maintenance crew took three days to fix the air-conditioning and leaks in our room. The guest services staff was professional and helpful. The chef and cooks on board should be fired. We have never experienced such poor food on a cruise.

A great cruise from Montreal to Boston via the St Lawrence River. Canada's Maritime provinces are beautiful and interesting. Great weather the entire time!

Beautiful Trip by lindsaybragman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Overall this was a great vacation. Got to spend time with my parents and boyfriend and really enjoyed the view as well as the area we visited. Disappointed that shore excursions were cancelled and could not re-book. I understand weather related cancellations but that was only 1 of the 3. The excursions we did take were great! and all of the locals and cruise staff were friendly and personable.

Wonderful Start, Rough Ending by don4869282

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Zaandam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Wonderful trip with a mediocre ending. It appears that the cruise lines know this trip was set too early in the season but didn't care.
