Rotterdam Cruise Review by vicverse

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

HAL delivered again with a very nice cruise, great food, super service, friendly staff and gracious public spaces. Great room on Dolphin deck with hardly and rock and roll and a big room with window (1903).Not a fan of the tv/dvd combo...hopefully they will upgrade that.

Elevators around the corner zip up to Lido and MDR.

Food was excellent. Banana bread French toast was a fav in MDR for breakfast. Creme Brûlée, prime rib, French onion soup, any dessert all good. Pork roast was like Sunday dinner as a kid.

Liked the trivia games and the happy hour in the Crows Nest.

Lincoln centre stage was excellent.

Gift shop was so-so... to many high end things and low end was gaudy.

Embarkation and disembarkation was the smoothest I have experienced.

The staff were the real stand outs. Always friendly , helpful, smiling and keeping things clean. They work so hard!

Great ports mix of large and small. 24 hour sun was something to see!

Did not do any shore excursions with HAL(to expensive)all were booked ahead of time online.
