We have two cruises booked for nest summer. The first is a 12 night Artic Circle round trip Rotterdam on the newly remodeled Century.(balcony cabin)
The second cruise is a 17 night transatlantic crossing that goes from Boston to Rotterdam with stops in Canada, Iceland, Greenland and Norway ect.
We love Celebrity but the iten on the Massdam is great and might be even coooler(temp) than the Century.
My concern is that we have never sailed on HAL and know the Massdam has had some mechanical problems in the past and recent reviews are not very good.
I dont know which cruise to cance.l(the departure dates are appox the same.
Money wise, Celebrity is much cheaper but we have a suite on the Massdam so everything is not equal.
Anyone who has sailed both ships please give me your thoughts.
i would hands down choose the century. i have sailed many times on both lines and i have always enjoyed celebrity more. i have been on the massdam before and I did not like it at all. it was very small and did not offer much. even with hal's signature of excellence there is still something to be desired. the century is like a brand new ship now and is beautiful. if i were you i would take the century. if u had said that the holland america sailing was on the rotterdam i might have said that it is a tough call because that is a nice ship but when comparing the century to the massdam there is no comparision. happy cruising!
