    Excellent cabin stewards (Sugi). Chefs and Dining staff (Widy, Daru, Mario) above expectations! The Asst Dining Room Manager was an excellent leader by example, ever present and always smiling. Only disappointment was the sub floor "divots" in the cabin hallways. Our Panama Canal Cruise was a fabulous experience and loved all the excursions! But it was the continued service that I appreciated most. Thank You Very Much Holland America for returning my phone by express mail when I left it in my stateroom as we exited the ship. Now that is exceptional service!!! The show: Island Magic Steel Drum Band got thunderous applause and total audience standing ovations at both appearances. You have got to see their Beethoven and Beyond collection!
    Pros Holland America?? TYVM. Staff was even better than other cruises !!! Awesome service and dining. Loved the dining. Service was exceptional. One show was full audience standing ovation, The Island Magic Steel Band
    Cons Unsafe cabin hallway sub-floors needed repair on several decks.

    We very much enjoyed our twenty-four day cruise stopping at so many places that we have always wanted to see. Our biggest frustration was there was so much to see and so little time to see and do everything that we wanted to see and do. Holland America should consider including wifi as it is becoming a necessity rather than a luxury.
    Pros Staff was excellent, number of stops provided a lot of variety, ship was always clean, dining options were good
    Cons Very poor and expensive wifi, daily hotel service charge over and above what you have already paid, way over priced beverage packages, over priced shore excursions through Holland America with absolutely no assistance when other options are available

    Best of Bonaire tour was disappointing-not much to see. The salt ponds were the only interesting feature. Panama Canal tour met all expectations; we were very happy with the bus trip to Miraflores-our guide, Jill, was excellent. Veragua-Eco Tour was more physically demanding than advertised. It's a must see when in Costa Rica, but 4 hours on my feet after two back surgeries was tough.

    8/2015 Sicily, Malta, Greece, Croatia, Montenegro, Italy
    Full Review
    I feel that on the whole the cruise was a success. We had a good time both on and off the ship, with interesting ports, a pleasant swim at the end of the day and a good dinner, nicely served, with family. We often caught several minutes of classical music in one of the lounges after dinner. My granddaughter enjoyed the Memphis blues night club and some of us tried our luck ( not good) in the casino. We patronized some of the shops on the ship. We also appreciated having a card room. I enjoyed walking around the promenade deck. So many ships nowadays don't have a walk that goes all the way around.
    Pros The itinerary was excellent. We enjoyed all the ports. The public rooms and elevators and promenade decks were lovely. There were beautiful large bouquets of fresh flowers here and there which added a lot to the ambiance. The dining room was comfortable and attractive and the service was excellent. Our waiter was a charmer and very attentive. We had two excellent shows: a mime/magician who was incredible and very entertaining, and a local singing and dancing troupe from Kotor, Monte Negro, who performed native dances in a great variety of beautiful costumes. One other show we enjoyed was put on by Philippine staff members, doing native singing and dancing in costume.
    Cons We were disappointed in our stateroom. It was very cramped and shabby. Supposedly a cabin for 3 people, it had 2 1/2 closets, two small 2-drawer chests, and in the evening when the beds were made up, one could not get out to the balcony without stepping on the pullout sofa, which we did not do. There was no room for the extra chair or sofa table, nor for my rollator walker, which I put in the bathtub, until I found out I could call and have it taken away overnight and delivered back in the morning. The door to the balcony was very heavy to open and couldn't be kept open the way sliding doors would have been. We had to make do with a folding chair for the dressing table. Other cons were: the food was not as good as I have had on Celebrity ships and even Norwegian line ships. The breads, hors d'ouevres and desserts were the best food items. It was difficult to orient oneself on the ship. There was very poor signage, indicating forward and aft, port and starboard. The day we left the ship we wanderered all over trying to find which way to get off and were afraid of missing our airport bus.

    The cabin and service on board was excellent. Food could be better including a better menu in the Pinnacle ( great space and service was over the top). Did not like having to buy water to take off ship at with tropical ports. First time on HAL- they do a good job.
    Pros Great itinerary- Panama Canal, Costa Rica, etc. If you have limited mobility HAL goes out of the way to assist both on the ship and with land excursionson. Entertainment was very good - both shows and music on board.
    Cons Ship is due for refit in April, some of the maintenance ( paint on the outside, upholstery in the Lido) was let go. Definitely an older crowd ( my wife and I are mid 60's.)

    If there was a problem it was with the hard sale of the cruise tours, they used the scare tactic and lied to the onboard passengers saying there was nothing to do in ports other then their tour. I took offense to these tactics and lies.
    Pros Restful cruise plenty of on ship time
    Cons We were discouraged from touring ourselves, much pressure to book ship tours

    See above!
    Pros Itinerary was excellent, took some good tours, especially Cartagena old town "less shopping" tour. Also had an excellent experience with a wildlife boat tour in Panama. Our guide (I believe Juan) was so passionate and wanted to share his knowledge so much, that it became a really phenomenal experience. The walking tour in Costa Rica was also very good. I liked the on-board activities like the various trivia (the asst. cruise director did a good job). Also, the BB King group was very, very good and did a great job of getting people up to dance. Only suggestion is to expand their playlist a bit. The more educational talks given by the crew were also interesting. More of those would be good.
    Cons Only real complaint I had was of the "excursion director" (not certain of his real title). His performance on stage was good, but his individual interactions with guests was, at times, not good. I already wrote about specifics on my on ship comment card.

    2/2019 Half Moon Cay, Cartegena, Curacao, Costa Rica, Panama and Aruba
    Full Review
    February 2019..Any issues or concerns we had were dealt with promptly by the front desk and especially by our cabin stewards. Everywhere we went staff greeted you like you were special even and even in the dining room by waiters who weren't even looking after your table. Tables in Lido buffet were cleaned quickly and staff was attentive. We had a suite so check in was quick and departure from the ship was very quick and orderly. Local port printed info could be improved and also the talk on each port could have had more local info and less about the shops as to where buy diamonds etc which seemed to be the focus.. There was a concern about the pool not clean enough and it was quickly drained and cleaned. Could have had more time in Cartagena and would have been nice to finish up with a half day again in Half Moon the day before returning to Fort Lauderdale.
    Pros
    Cons Cold in mainstage and test kitchen; local port info presentation could be better

    The food rivals Regent, Crystal, Silversea. The service is the best. The shows were very good. The cabins for the price beat the other cruise lines. We have sailed on Silversea, Princess, Viking, and Crystal.

    Full Review
    Although the ship is about 20 years old it received recently a renovation and the cabins (at least my Verandah storeroom) have recent flat screen TV's with wireless connectivity. Also the crows nest (upper most deck near the bow) has several large touch screen tables that display interactive information about the cruise ports.
    Pros Recent renovation
    Cons Doesn't have the midship Asian restaurant that the more recent bigger HAL ships have

    Perfect trip when you can get off the ship and be home shortly thereafter. Limited daytime activities as very few sea days... fine with me...
    Pros Food was superb as was the staff and service. Since we went through Immigration in Bal Harbor, getting off in Ft Lauderdale was a breeze.
    Cons Ship was very cold. Went to dry dock after we arrived so perhaps there was a problem.

    HAL Zuiderdam Panama Canal 12/9/2013

    12/2013 Panama Canal
    This is a wonderful itinerary which includes some of the less traveled ports such as Aruba, Curacao & Cartagena, as well as Colon and Puerto Limon.
    Full Review
    Our weather was wonderful which contributed to lazy days on a beach for those who were so inclined. HAL's private island, Half Moon Cay, is perfect for lazing the day away or being as active as you choose with horseback rides, snorkeling or hikes around the island. I really recommend the rental of a Clamshell ($15 for two chairs) to give you some shade from the strong sun. Our only rainy day was the transit of the Panama Canal. It did impact our outdoors enjoyment somewhat because the rain was coming down in buckets. But it's warm outside and somehow you don't mind so much! We watched our ship being pulled through the locks from under a shelter. The vantage point from the ground was fascinating to be able to see the engines pulling the ship and being so close. An 11 day itinerary is an ideal length of time to be away.
    Pros Friendliness and attitude of the staff and very good food & entertainment
    Cons The ship is looking a little tired.
