From embarkation to disembarkation this cruise was fun and easy. There were no hassles at all.Being a smaller ship it was easy to make friends and after 24 days you start to get to know most faces.

The food was amazing and service excellent as usual. The only thing i could complain about is the activities during the day were sparse, many people were complaining about being bored but i think that was down to the cruise director being in the job to long and having blinkers on when it came to his area of responsibility.

The Vista suit stateroom we had was the best we have had so far with spa bath and extra long cabin and good size balcony.My husband got a blood infection on the first night and was looked after very well by the doctor and his team,because of there care we were able to carry on our cruise.Overall a dam good cruise and would not hesitate to recommend Holland America to anyone.

Cabin Review

Cabin

Extremely comfortable cabin, very well appointed with good size balcony. The room was longer than other balcony cabins we have had.Bathroom with spa bath was great.
