A very happy ship

Mar 15th, 2019

This was our first cruise with Holland. We had the good fortune of sailing with a superior captain who knew how to motivate his staff. All crew encounters were pleasant. Your folks actually seemed happy to be aboard. The cigar room was a gem!!!!!!!!!!

Good Cruise

Mar 14th, 2019

Pretty good cruise overall. See comment above regarding deck chair noise in 8147 from the Lido deck. Service seemed a bit less than we've encountered on other Holland America cruises. Still very good but somewhat inconsistent (except the Pinnacle Room and Bar).

Loved the crew! Ship was old and tired. Food in the Pinnacle Grill was good. The Italian crew was excellent! Disappointed that shops were closed halfway through cruise.

It was a good cruise, not as good as previous HAL but still enjoyable.

It was a good cruise, the ship and staff were all very good at their job. It was a very clean ship and the staff were always helpful. Unfortunately, night time was very lacking entertainment wise. No dancing, the shows were just okay, they showed movies on two nights which I don't think is acceptable.

Just off the Noordam from Auckland to Sydney and staff/crew were the textbook definition of service. Warm friendly and amazingly patient. Food was fantastic, rooms very comfortable. Crossing the Tasman Sea was an adventure. Should get one more star for being on this trip.

Best way to see Australia and New Zealand

This was a once in a lifetime cruise. HAL visited the most ports of all the other cruise lines. Total of 3 weeks from start to finish. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful Australia & New Zealand Trip

Feb 14th, 2019

This was probably the best vacation ever. The ship and crew were wonderful. The ship review should have gotten a 5.0, but they added in the port excursions as well.

We have a great experience in this ship. The crew is very professional, correct and happy. The cruise director Carlos is an amazing professional and he is always present; in the mornings at the piers, during the day he cross your way all the time, during the nights shows, etc. He always finds time to talk to everyone. We found Holland America is one of the best cruise lines. The only issue came when they had to reimburse for a taxi they agreed to and took them six months to send the check. I would recommend the Land and Sea Alaska experiance.

Holland America - maybe not just yet.

It was a bucket list experience. I travel with a different cruise line each year. What do they have to capture me. What pleases me and what does not. My quest continues.
