Great itinerary but run down ship

Nov 4th, 2019

Amazing itinerary. Run down ship with no history speakers or real “shows”. Awesome service. Great embarkation/disembarkation.

Great Cruise on a Great ship

Nov 3rd, 2019

A great cruise with a great itinerary. We enjoyed every day. The only down side was the extremely poor disc jockey (who was listed as the assistant cruise director) in the Crows Nest. She was absolutely clueless on how to read what people would dance to.

I don't think my booking on Holland America Rotterdam is worth the money that we paid given the poor condition of the bathroom.

Fun mystery cruise

Oct 22nd, 2019

We really enjoyed this cruise we called it a mystery cruise as the weather was bad and we had to go to different ports and got to spend 5 days in Ireland. We weren't sure what ports we were going to, it was actually fun. The caption mad sure we were safe and that's all that mattered. Would definitely cruise Holland America again.

It was a great cruise. Loved the scenery. Saw whales, dolphins, sealions and the Northern light. The prins Christian Sund is the absolute highlight.

Noisy cabin

The cruise was fantastic. Just not much going on on the Rotterdam. Loved Tallinn, Estonia. Took two tours using ShipMate and they were fantastic. No issues what so ever.

What can I say! Absolutely wonderful experience on this cruise! The scenery was gorgeous and the ship workers were some of the friendliest you'll meet. 10/10 recommend!
