Why so little information on HAL?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have looked at many cruise boards and it is pretty much the same on every cruise board. Very few people post information on Holland America and her ships. There are also very few reviews written on Holland America cruise ships. The truth is there is only one board that I find a regular set of reviews about Holland America cruise's on. I will not mention that board out of respect for this board. Even on that board there are not a lot of reviews written.

So please give me an opinion on why you may think few people comment on Holland America.

I understand that Holland America is known for having older passengers but older doesn't mean dead, I mean no offense. I know many older people that a lot of young people cannot keep up with. In my mind older people would be able to write some great reviews and comments because they actually learned how to write, unlike many younger people that write in short text type messages.

I'm sorry if I sound a little rude but I have alwyas felt that many older people have a more interesting point of view and I have learned more from elderly people then young people. I guess that may sound like a snob so I am sorry if I have offended anyone. Once I cruise on Holland America this summer I will try to help others with information. By the way I am older and a great grandfather.

I have an aunt who’s nearly 90 and you’re right, she’s an example of someone who’s active, intelligent and articulate. She’s a very elegant writer and I know this because she only communicates via long, hand-written letters. But she has no use for or interest in the internet.

I bet she has a lifetime of stories to share, too! :-)

I agree that it has got to be the computer and/or internet.

Marcy & James took their 2 kids on HAL and they loved the cruise. They said that the food was delicious. They particularly loved the outdoor kabobs that were poolside. The one comment that was made was that most folks did not partake in the lounges, casino or bars after 10pm, so it was a more relaxing cruise.

We keep looking at HAL, but their prices are what keep us away.
