Loved our Baltic cruise by rjs0007

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 11th cruise and the first on HAL. We were impressed with the cruise line and we loved the itinerary. The ship isn’t new but it’s elegant and classic. I love that it has a promenade deck. Our cabin was quiet and comfortable with a surprising amount of storage space.

Great trip but wrong name as we could not get to Stonehenge for the Solstice as it was sold out on the cruise ship and we could not get there by car. by askiba7

Two issues occurred on the ship. One I had a massage at the spa which was great but the attendant tried to sell me on two more massages and even charged my room. I had to meet with the manager to straighten out. We like to spend time in the casinos on the sea days but while on a slot machine that I was winning on the casino manager pulled my card from the machine, told me the machine had a problem and then offered to by me a drink. Very strange!

our 1st journey with holland america line- compared to the other cruises a nice experience-the staff was very friendly and helpfull -the stays in port a bit short- but perhaps that was due to a medical ER- evacuation that cut out some sometime-overall a great time- hallways could be more distinct on each floor-theme or picture wise- for easier orientation, the food was great and served fresh,nice and presented very tempting, there was plenty of things to do and easy find a quiet corner. all of the crew and staff do go of there way make it a great cruise-will choose this cruise line again!

We were promised a $250 credit by BJ’s Agent but never received the credit. That made our experience very unfavorable.

Superb trip to the Panama Canal by Cyberchill

Verified Review

This is a great cruise to enjoy the best of the Caribbean and a taste of the Panama Canal. Make sure you get a cruise that stops in Cartagena, as it is really a hidden gem!

Excellent Way to See the Panama Canal by TimfromReno

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

While the traditional Panama Canal cruise enters and exits in the same day, doing a partial transit as this ship did is a much better way to actually see Panama. When you do the full transit, you spend the entire day just getting through the canal and do not get to see Panama. This itinerary allowed us to see some of Panama and the canal up close.

Outstanding cruise by paintincluded

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Yes an older group of people, seniors if you will. But this can be a very nice change to the insanity that does occur on some other cruises we have done. Net of it, this was a great cruise and great experience. Thank You Holland, keep up the outstanding work.

Wonderful way to spend Christmas! I enjoyed having the Officers' families on board and the children visiting with Santa Claus. Made me feel that Christmas had finally arrived. Also, in love with the Island Magic Steel Band.

Crew service was excellent! Best laundry service I have seen on any of my cruises. Quick turn around, laundry well done, and lower cost. Ship was showing signs of age.

Gramma Jane - The Canal by jrhallinen

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I love the somewhat smaller ships. Easier to navigate, no waiting in line for elevators, staff got to know us and call us by name. Met some people from the midwest and Canada the first couple of day on board and spend late afternoon, dinner and most evenings with them. The ship doesn't have all the activities that the larger ships have, but at 76 I don't need or want a wave pool, zip line, rock climbing wall etc. I want to be able to get around the ship easily, enjoy good food and the company of others with similar interests.

What has happened to the once-venerable Holland America cruiseline? by laermom

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have never been more disappointed in a cruise experience. We have cruised less expensive lines with less venerable reputations than Holland America and have always been delighted and pleasantly surprised by the value of the experiences we have had with food, entertainment, and service. In contrast, our experience on the Zuiderdam was a rip-off. Different passengers we spoke to with experience on Holland America ships told us this cruise was unrecognizable as an HAL experience. One even refered to her experience as feeling like she was in the Twilight Zone. There are plenty of cruise lines out there. No need to take a chance on Holland America and risk a similar experience to ours.

Celtic Advernture by genemila

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was very nice cruise. Food and entertainment exceed our expectations. A lot of activities during days at see. And of cause the promenade on the deck 5 is very helpful for people like us. It is in the middle of the ship, not on the upper deck like in other cruise lines. Excursions from the Holland America are overpriced.
