7 day Alaskan Cruise. Day1 while in line to guest services there were staff helping in line. We were skipped over while others that came after was helped before us. Staff made us feel dumb, asking us to repeat orders or asking us if we were sure because it would charge our account. This happened almost every time we would order something. Dinning room service took 2hours. Buffet servers were rude. Guest services incompetent, have to go back multiple times to make sure everything is good and at the end they double charged us draining our funds. Horrible, terrible, services. Getting attitude from almost everyone. I will never go Cruising with Holland America ever again and I highly recommend that no one else as well.

Booked premium accommodations (Pinnacle Suite) to host guests on a short cruise. The deck hot tub was broken as was the suite music system. The suite is lovely and the ship is well appointed, but until the suite is repaired I would avoid booking this expensive premium suite.

I have sailed with HAL for sixteen years and this time it was a dreadful experience! Service & provisions are bare minimum. HAL cut out a lot of things, small & large, that used to make it to stand out of all large cruise lines. Smell of cigarette smoke from the casino spread out through the ship. YUK! Cabin was barely cleaned: dust all around, dirty drapes, poorly planed furniture, TV signal was bad, TV programs are old and uninteresting. Plus, had to get creative to watch TV because the angle it was hanged. Who planned that? Smell of urine and sticky floors in the bathrooms, toiletries that were supposed to be provided on daily bases needed to be ask for, shower size is too small. Restaurants food and choice of dishes subpar. No art show as before, no movie theater. No Royal Tea event. No passed passengers appreciation event. Neptune lounge had minimal choice of appetizers and snacks. Package "have it all" is bate and switch: free wi-fi did not work, choice of excursions was limited, found nothing interesting, lost $100 per person allowance as was not permitted to apply to something else. Even traditional two coasters to memorize the sail was limited to one! Only two night of pillow chocolates. It is not a big deal but so petty on HAL behalf. Was looking forward to a first after pandemic cruise experience, paid nearly $8K for this rather sad experience. Apparently, HAL does not appreciate loyalty. Elena

It was our first time on the Koningsdam. It was beautiful and had so many new places/venues to explore. The staff was outstanding. Great food. Loved everything!

If you’re looking for a cruise where you can relax this is the company you’d want to go with. Go for the newest ships! But still old ships still has their charm.
