Review for Oosterdam to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: My cruising history - this was my 16th cruise (1-Carnival/1-Celebrity/3-Norwegian/11-Royal Caribbean). I decided to try HAL because I was looking for a little "step up" from RCL for things like service, food, entertainment, etc. I believe I have found it. My biggest concern was that I've always heard that HAL tends to be a older crowd (I've heard it referred to as the ...

I am writing this review to let others know what actually happened to "me" alone, on the Trans-Atlantic Crossing of Holland America's "Oosterdam". I took Holland America this time, (my 23rd Tans-Atlantic) because my usual line, "Celebrity", had become less than acceptable. I must say that Celebrity gives me tremendous "Frequent Cruiser Benefits". Much, much , much better than Holland America! ...

The Independence of the Seas failed to meet expectations

After 15 cruises of various cruise lines including 4 previously on RCL I found the 14th March 2015 sailing on the Independence Of The Seas to be way below expectations in several areas. However the short comings did not curtail having a great family vacation. My wife and I traveled with our two sons, daughter in law and 11 month old granddaughter. One son used Choice Air traveling from Wichita, ...

This was our 14th cruising experience. We had a delightful week. As Platinum members with RC, embarkation was a breeze in Ft. Lauderdale. We got there a day early and enjoyed a stroll down Seabreeze Blvd. Saturday morning along the beach. Had dinner at Coconut Waterside Grill Friday night - wonderful and we're sure to return. Love the Independence of the Seas. Size of ship offers enhanced ...

Ship is substandard, well past its prime

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

While the hotel staff is caring and concerned, the condition of the ship is awful. Upon boarding, at least 50 cabins on 2 decks had no air conditioning and many of the public rooms were too warm including deck 8 which encompasses the library and internet cafe. At first, HAL staff tried to tell us that it was a result of the temperature change as the ship had been in New England and was now in the ...

Carnival Freedom Pros • Guys’ Burger and the Blue Iguana Café – great additions • Friendly staff • Spacious balcony cabin • Ice cream machines are open 24 hours • Serenity Deck for adults • Camp Ocean seemed to be a hit with the kids Carnival Freedom Cons • Limited hours (usually 12:00 – 2:30) for the Mongolian Wok – many times a wait of 15-30 minutes • Change in policy for bingo ...

It was okay but not excellent

Ship is beginning to show its wear & tear. Staff was top notch and cabin attendant tackled every problem. Unfortunately, since HAL seems to cater to those over 60 you have to deal with those fellow passengers that have difficulties with any walking. Entertainment in main room was okay but movie theatre projection system is very out of date and poor quality. Note: they did have recent movies but ...

Everything from check-in to disembarkation was fantastic. The dining room Grand Cuvee was great from ambience to service to the food taste and choices. We had dinner every night in the dining room. We enjoyed our waiters and out table mates--8.There were ample choices but always something for everyone. Our waiter explained the daily chef recommendations in detail and kept us abreast of daily ...

I wanted to share my observations from our recent cruise of the MSC Poesia. We traveled December 1-11, 2012 and were in cabin 10126. We are experienced travelers and this was our first cruise with MSC. We were asked by friends to join them for our wedding anniversary and in total there were five couples traveling together. It is always helpful when giving feedback to start out with positive ...

Eurodam Transatlantic Cruise -- April 14th to 27th, 2012 My DH and I drove to Fort Lauderdale from Ontario, Canada to board the Eurodam April 14th for its transatlantic cruise. This was our first TA cruise and our first time to Europe so needless to say we were very excited. We had a very nice drive down to Fort Lauderdale taking two nights on the road. Sail away day April 14th was a ...
