Love the Mexican Riviera.

Jan 10th, 2020

We really have enjoyed the Mexican Riviera both times that we have visited. Unfortunately our trip on the Oosterdam was not quite as nice as with the Eurodam. They raised the fare 20% and gave us less entertainment.

Another great vacation cruise!

Jan 2nd, 2020

This was our first time sailing in the Pacific. The cruise itself was very nice as HAL did not disappoint. The ports are pretty and historic. We really enjoyed it but I have to say that the Caribbean is still our favorite. The water on the Pacific side is dark and very rough. So, for that reason, we would probably not sail there again unless it was Alaska or Hawaii. The weather was perfect!

Comedy of Errors Cruise

Jan 2nd, 2020

The cruise was rather disappointing because we lost a port because the ship broke. I fell twice on one excursion, my husband got sick on the last day. It just didn’t turn out as planned. It also rained for the 2 days we were stuck in San Diego for the repair. The port was canceled and excursions were canceled for the port we did go too. It was a comedy of errors. Oh well

No Activities or Production Shows

Dec 31st, 2019

The cruise provided us with a good weeklong getaway. But, there was little to do well on board. The cruise director did very little to make a weeklong holiday cruise special. It was Christmas and Hanukkah week. There could have been a holiday-themed production show on the main stage. The holidays were acknowledged in the daily printed schedule of activities, but that was all.

Great 7 days Mexico riviera cruise with HAL

Dec 30th, 2019

This is only my 2nd cruise with the first only for 4 days and more than 15 years ago. I found the experience great and would definitely do it more often. It is a great way to travel for a solo traveller. Only one issue that I think could have been better is activities and entertainment. I may try another cruise line for my next one.
