We live in Upstate N.Y so we left the day before and stayed at a great hotel my wife got on priceline called B Hotel.Their are good reviews about the hotel on Trip Advisor. We arrived at the port at about 11:00 and embarkment was very well organized and quick. Dropped our stuff off and went to Lido for lunch by 12:00.

This was only or 2nd Holland Cruise we have cruised 12 other times 6 Princess and 6 Royal Carib. I will keep this as brief as possible, but hopefully informative.

Room: Very Nice and spacious with a decent bath with tub, It is a back balcony not any type of suite. Our room stewart coudn't do enough for you, excellent service.

Lido: Good variety, great food have to say that I got the pasta with meat sauce often but tried a couple of other items and all were great. esp. the pizza.

Dinner: Again good variety every night but if you didn't like what they had they have a good alternative menu, steak chicken etc. Great service,

Greenhouse Spa: Great Thermal suite, well worth the money, stone beds were nice and very warm over looking the ocean, steam rooms wonderful and the Hydro pool was was perfect. Great relaxing time.

Entertainment : It was better than what we had expected, shows were good B.B King show was great.

It was a great cruise with an older crowd but that didn't seem to matter a bit. It is worth taking a look at.

Met two other wonderful couples at dinner Fred and Ginny and Hugo and Jan. We had a fantastic time with good friends and lots of laughter, Thanks for being a part of our cruise.

Cabin review: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Great Room, spacious, one of the largest bathrooms we've had on a cruise, has a tub, which is something you don't see often.The balcony is approx. 10x12. asked for 2 lounge chairs had them within 15 minutes.Room Stewart was excellent.No real drawbacks except the balcony door can get a bit heavy, they open on hinges.
