Who knew how fantastic this would be?
"Holland America used to be known as the cruise line where seniors would eat at 530 pm and be tucked away by nine. So not so anymore. My wife and I, veterans of more than thirty cruises took our first HAL cruise to..."Read More

Exceptional entry for me to travel since my loss. Welcomed warmly om board. Almost instantly met a wonderful group of seniors from St Augustine and we all learned about one another. Each day a group religious service was on ( I needed that) and wasn't practicing for many years). The public areas were kept exceptionally clean and the staff tended to your EVERY need. While many cruise and report ...

At the port we were greeted very nicely and had a gentlemen that did our paperwork that was very nice and patient. The embarkation went smoothly got our stateroom cards then hop on the ship! We had a guaranteed partial view balcony and it was ok. Next time I will prefer a full view balcony but the price was right. There is a lot of storage space everything was well appointed. I found that the ...

We choose this cruise because I took my mother and she loves Holland America and I needed a real relaxing vacation not a huge party on the ocean with 5000 of my closest friends. The demographic is mostly retired older people. It was nice and relaxing. There were a few things you could do during the day other than lay by the pool such as trivia, bingo, bridge, lectures or go up to the Explorers ...

The FOOD: Dinning room above average variety and tase. Lido Buffet, way above average as each station has an active attendant that will prepare to order and/or place food on your plate. Passengers do not need to use tongs and get what they want instead simply ask and the attendant will place on a plate and give it to you. This resulted in food being fresh and at correct tempture and not ...

Embarkation was smooth, uncrowded and uneventful. Escorted to 4 & 5 Star Mariner Lounge and boarded promptly at 11:30am. Carried all of our luggage as carry-ons and we were unpacked by 1205pm. For lunch we went to the MDR and were seated at a table for 2. Everyone (ships staff) along the way greeted us with "welcome on board" , "hope you have a nice cruise" with sincere smiles of welcome. Thus is ...

HAL WITH KIDS FOR DUMMIES - Our cruise aboard the Niew Statendam We are a family of 4, including 2 young children, and we just returned from a cruise aboard the Niew Statendam. It is because Holland America may not be the first cruise line that families with young children would consider for a cruise vacation the main reason why I wish to share our experience. When I was researching this ...

I booked this cruise later than I usually do, about three months out, so I didn't get any "freebies" but the price wasn't to bad for a new ship. The New Statendam is the largest, newest ship I've ever travelled on and there were lots of pros and a few cons. First of all, the ship is absolutely gorgeous, the service and food were outstanding. My cabin stewards were some of the friendliest and ...

We chose this cruise because the price seemed a bargain and we were interested in trying another cruise line. Before sailing we had read reviews, a lot of them mentioning that Holland America has dropped the ball when it comes to providing interesting day and evening activities. The writers mentioned that they had boring times on board. We decided that we would try the cruise line and go with ...

I went on this cruise because some of our friends picked the cruise. This was one of the best cruises I have been on. Now it's Holland American so there's no hairy legs contests at the pool or goofy game shows like on some other brands. Quite frankly these are not missed. This ship features a two level indoor outdoor pool area so it was fairly easy to get a chair around the pool and I ...
