Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
We had never traveled to South America before. The itinerary was very educational. Tour guides were very good. Holland America was great. The crew was wonderful and the food was great. We would trave either them again.
We find Shannon Kelley to be the most wonderful agent, whose patience and knowledge help us make the proper choices to each cruise.
Shore excursion descriptions were a little less accurate than expected. I would encourage them to make them more so.
Excellent Cruise on Holland America Line to South America and Antarctica.
Fantastic cruise itinerary around South America and Antarctica. Holland America did a great job on this cruise. Their on-board expedition team provided fascinating insights and lectures on Antarctica.
Kasey always responded in a timely manner with the information that was needed.
Affordable Tours provided excellent service. Our agent was responsive and the details were handled well. Our cruise and tour more than met our expectations.
Enjoyed the entire trip! Thanks to Affordable Tours for your help in booking.
Being the very first cruise we ever have, this was beyond our expectation. We will do it again. The service we received from Holland America was quite impressive.
The only part of our tour package we did not enjoy was Haines, (1) there was not much to see or do, especially if it involved up hill walking. and (2) the amount of time in port was to long. (3) We would have rather gone to Skagway. Otherwise it was a beautiful trip.
Holland ship was a bit worn and in need of renovation. Due to local conditions, two of the scheduled stops did not happen.
The Cruise was fabulous. Beyond our expectations.
The average age was a little high, but I was warned about that before the trip.
