I recently went on a trip on the Volendam in South East Asia and their event manager Meghan enforces very racist policies against their Asian customers who are not permitted to use game rooms but have to play in the dimly lit Crow's Nest or the hot Lido Pool area while their Western customers were allowed to use air conditioned...

I went on holiday on the Ms Veendam and the spa manager Candice was the most rude and unprofessional person in a managerial position I wondered how that company manages to stay in business with such untrained management she mixed up all my appointments and they also lost the important form that I filled out and had to fill it out again and she shouts when she speaks and looks at you like your a...

What would you do if your cruise line lost your bag between their transit bus from the airport to the ship? If it`s Holland America, get used to disposable underwear, borrowed shorts and a complimentary overnight kit. If you`re missing medicine, know that it`s your responsibility to keep it on your person. To be safe, with Holland America, you may want to keep your bags with you on the bus and... Read more

My first cruise ever! First vacation in over 25 years. rude staff, smelly cabin, broke down old nasty ship The MS Ryndam she needs to be put down. If you have a walker, *** bag, cane, scooter and like to end your night at 9pm this is the trip for you, puzzles cost extra. When the most excitement is in the toilet you may have to ask your self if this was worth the cash. Why does a midnight buffet... Read more

While traveling in the Baltic on the MS Eurodam, I awoke to find my wallet not where I left it the previous night. Upon though search of the cabin, I notified the front office of the missing wallet, I was advised it may have been turned in at the front desk just minutes prior to my call. Upon inspection it was returned to me missing the $1800 cash, the cruise line policy is to search my cabin... Read more
