Our first time cruising with HAL. Absolutely loved it!! Great destinations. Professional staff. Had a verandah cabin. Loved waking up each day somewhere new, opening the curtains & wow!! Have now booked our second cruise for August 2020.

Great Cruise!!

Great experience.. We have cruised Japan before and enjoyed both. This one was better than the previous one we had been on.

Best destinations to see in 2 weeks in Asia

Apr 21st, 2019

Best way to see 4 of Asia's biggest cities on 2 week vacation. Well, you do want to stay a couple of nights before and after the cruise to truly enjoy Hong Kong and Tokyo

After 16 cruises this ship is about the worst. A night it is a ghost ship. Never again on Holland American.

The ship is really not impressive in any way. A ports were mostly high rise buildings. If you take a tour you can can see a little of the country side. A few of the trips were worth the money, others a total waste. If you truly want to see these countries do not attempt to do it on a cruise ship. Please note that the cruise line gives this rating an overall 2.4 out of 3. It is not that high in reality.

Great itinerary. Never enough time in port (but that's always the problem). Food was terrific and crew was very friendly and helpful.

We loved this cruise in Asia. We travel to learn and grow and for goodwill with all people. This includes the wonderful staff and amazing entertainers in board. We loved the soeakers. We ate at Lido and did not drink because that's not us. We had an amazing verandah room and we were in awe. We did all our own excursions including an overnight Airbnb in Bangkok and a 6 hour cruise on Halong Bay. Life changing! I would go again.

VERY disappointed with the ship which was supposedly refurbished about 5 years ago. Cracks in bathroom sink, very poor signage, including poor placement of cabin locations (from elevators). Speakerphone doesn't work correctly.

Great ports. Have been on two other wonderful HAL cruises....SE Asia (again) and Mediterranean. This one was such a disappointment, I cannot recommend to friends, and will probably steer away from future cruises on HAL. We are planning an Alaska cruise......saw that Westerdam will be going there.....NO WAY!!! I told our friends that we would not cruise on Westerdam again, and to stay away from HAL, unless HAL is the only line that goes where we want.

Excellent services, good food, great musicians at the Lincoln center, BB King, Billboard. Good information and tips in the ports talks. They were very helpful and attended every requirement very quickly.
