  • Overall
    This is my first cruise on board a larger ship. We normally sail on smaller ships (1400 -2000 guests) so we expected a little more personal service, especially when your booked in their best (suite) stateroom. It didn't happen! Holland America ke
  • Quality of Food
    Dining on board was just average. The food in the dining room lacked presentation. It was good, but nothing to brag about. The buffet was adequate, good selection everyday, properly served, and made a good appearance.

  • Staff
    Staff was very helpful, considering the language barrier. Most spoke very little, if any English. They did do their best to accommodate the guest. Service was adequate...They did nothing over and above in order to make you feel like a valued guest. I
  • Childrens Facilities
    The category 12 stateroom is advertised as a suite. This cabin is no larger than a verandah cabin on Holland America. Beautiful cabin, high on deck 15...but it is not a suite! -------------------------------------------------------- We had no child
  • Onboard Activities
    On a typical day, the animation team might bring passengers together for card and board games, organize trivia contests, offer multilingual cha-cha lessons on the Zebra Lounge dance floor, stage an "Italian Party" in the disco, and wear black clothes

Pros: Pleasant Staff/Service, Comfortable Cabin

Cons: Weak Daytime Activities, Mediocre Entertainment

Best Uses: Family Vacation, Relaxing Vacation
