Koningsdam Cruise Review by CruiseAiderKim
- Sail Date: February 2019
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Standard Interior Stateroom
We were pleasantly surprised with our 4th floor interior room. It was spacious, clean, and had ample of storage space. The beds were comfortable and we loved the roomy bathroom! The cabin exceeded our expectations.
The Koningsdam is my favorite cruising ship so far. It exceeded all expectations! The wonderful staff and excellent food were over the top! There were few lines for food, plenty of seating for the shows, no screaming kids, nor intoxicated people. It was pleasant, peaceful, and restful. My favorite ship highlights were the Lincoln Center Stage performances, the Lido Market cuisine, the afternoon tea service, lounging poolside, and the EXC excursion talks.
Don’t get me wrong. If you want live music or movies playing by the pool with a lot of dancing and drinking, this cruise isn’t for you. However, if you like it quiet enough to hold a conversation, read books, play cards, nap, or tune out with earbuds, HAL Koningsdam is the perfect choice!
We enjoyed all of the ports and excursions, except Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)We walked around the port but the air was filled with smoke from the public trash-burning site that is close to the port. We couldn't breathe and we didn't see anything at the port that was worth our time. We returned to the ship.View All 709 Amber Cove (Puerto Plata) Cruise Port Reviews
