Quite fantastic holiday.
Before cruising, all guests and crew will have to undergo health screenings, which could include questionnaires and temperature checks.
Staterooms will be thoroughly cleaned up to twice a day, and after each cleaning all touch points will be sanitised again. In public spaces, such as corridors, there will be frequent cleaning, especially of handrails, door handles and buttons. Each night there will be deep cleaning and fogging of busy public venues such as restaurants, toilets and spa, amongst others. Should guests show flu-like symptoms their cabin will have an additional deep clean and all bed linen, towels, table cloths et will be specially laundered.
Should anyone onboard develop symptoms, each ship has well-equipped facilities and highly-trained medical staff.
At the entrance to onboard venues with high traffic, such as dining rooms, bars and lounges, there will be hand sanitizers to encourage frequent handwashing. At the Lido Market restaurant, crew will be on hand to prompt guests at these stations. All food service stations here will be staffed.
Crew safety is a priority for Holland America Line, which is why all members will be trained in Covid-19 measures and how to ensure compliance across the ships. Crew will also be required to undergo heath checks before and throughout their time onboard.
By only visiting low risk destinations and working with health authorities, Holland America Line can ensure that guests are safe when they disembark to explore each port of call.

I was on this ship last year and enjoyed it very much. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Too much at times! Would go again

Just cruised on this ship. The staff are exceptionally good, particularly in the restaurant and the people who take care of the cabins. The problem, as far as we were concerned, was the temperature of the dining room and the theatre. It was Cold! Who takes warm clothes on a cruise.? The food was frequently cold. The coffee was inevitably cold. When requested, the staff would bring hot coffee. The portions of steak were generous and very good. The fish was also good but small, which suited small appetites but felt sure some would find it insufficient. The shows were disappointing. The drinks expensive. Cheaper to organise your own sightseeing visits. The embarkation was horrendous. The passengers were mostly friendly.Show more

Overall the ship were very good. The service onboard was very good with the steward and laundry service being exceptional. The excursions are overpriced and passengers would be better off arranging a local tour once they have disembarked. Each port had many options for booking excursions from taxis to vans. We ordered wine packages before the trip and were told that we would be able to use our wine not only in the restaurants but in the bars as well. When we inquired in the bars the waiters said they did not have time to get the wines which we had ordered. The first 48 hours of food service was served by the staff in an effort to thwart any possible infections that may have been brought onboard. The captain's frequent reminders about hand washing, etc. were helpful. The menu in the Pinnacle restaurant became a little tedious after four dinners there. There should be more options.Show more

My husband and I took a cruise on last september and it was the most amazing time we had have in our lives so far. We went to Alaska and Victoria Canada. The ship was incredible: very clean and modern; the staff couldn't be better: very courteous and always around when we needed something. The food was great no matter where: the buffets or the restaurant. We had a cabin with a balcony and the views were breathtaking. We really enjoyed the tours in all the ports. The food was awesome everywhere we went. We usually don't repeat when on vacation, but this cruise would be a repeater.Show more

We had a great trip and loved the Oosterdam. The food was amazing, especially the seafood selection (salmon, shrimp and lobster tails.) of the Main Dining area. The Pinnacle Grill were also our favorite the strip steak, ribeye was truly amazing. The drinks on Oosterdam was better than other cruises we had been, The cocktail were strong and hand mixed. Not to forget about the good selection they have. The entertainment were similar to other ships. The Magician were fantastic, by far one of the best we have seen while at sea. But if you are a non smoker, beware a lot of smoker don't care about the non smoking sign on the ship.Show more
