The Panam Canal Cruise of a lifetime!

Mar 20th, 2020

My sister and I were never on a cruise and it was amazing. My dad wanted to go on a cruise which at 96 years of age we thought was too much for him. This was like an item on his bucket list which my sister and I wanted to share with him. He wanted so much to see the Panama Canal and thought a cruise ship was the best way. He didn't enjoy it as much as he thought he would. Its not the same as he remembered the Dam ships use to have more events and less commercial like the cruises my dad went on with my mom. He will always have a fondness for the Dam ships.

Great itinerary at least

Mar 13th, 2020

The crowd onboard is 75+ years old, the clubs are empty as well as the casino it’s extremely boring do yourself a favor and use Royal Caribbean or even (gulp) Carnival.

Disappointing

I am an experienced cruiser, and we chose this cruise because of the ports being visited...Panama Canal. This was the first cruise with Holland America. We will cruise again, but we will be choosing a different cruise line.

Everything was great. The day after return I was at the hospital with virus-A, and streptococcus. Maybe they should clean the terminals better.

The weather was warm which was the primary reason for taking the cruise. Nice itinerary and the staff we encountered during the trip were outstanding.

I miss the old Holland-America Line

Feb 16th, 2020

The cruise itself was nice and relaxing and a nice getaway from the cold. This was my fifth cruise with HAL and I was a little disappointed with them. I had ranked them a slight step above Norwegian and RCCL, but after this cruise I will probably be cruising with the other lines before coming back to HAL.

Relaxing Caribbean Cruise

Feb 11th, 2020

We enjoyed our cruise (very relaxing)! Reserving a clam shell with chairs was a great way to enjoy Half Moon Cay! Snorkeling was nice in Grand Cayman (beautiful fish)! Main dining room meals were outstanding! We would like to see Holland America offer snack or some food items in the evening as we were often a bit hungry after the shows and food areas were often closed or closing around 8:30pm (since we had early seating for dinner, we were often a bit hungry in the evening). All in all, we enjoyed our cruise!
