Holland American Line is built on tradition and quality, in a successful and conservative style.
You will not find flashy neon lights; fancy, screamy modern colours in the furnitures or a lot of new "outdoor toys," such as waterslides, flow riders and climbing walls.
What you will find is discreet classic elegance in the interior and shipbuilding. Add a collection of classic art, string quartet with chamber music, and bands playing dance music of Evergreens for us, who have past their first youth.
Cabin 1025 Inside on Main Deck,
was nice, clean and very roomy. No noise from the casino above.
As we booked late this time, there were only inside cabins left. On entering the cabin (1025) on Maindeck, we were again positively surprised
with more than 200 sqft, and felt even larger. I measured 25 sqm in all. Plenty of cabinet space and a large sofa.
The cabin was roomy, very clean, had a new flatscreen TV. The bed was high enough, so even the largest suitcase is easy to stow under.
Bed-mattresses was super, a real dream-maker. Small details like garbage bins in the cabins with possibility for paper recirculation are well thought off.
Shampoo, soap and lotion of an exclusive brand. Lights in the large hanging cabinets, would have been nice, but thats all we missed in the cabin.
