Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Signature Superior Verandah Suite

This was our 9th cruise to date, all on Holland America. The weather was very nice, the ports were lovely & all in all we had a great time. We had a Signature Suite stateroom, on the starboard side of the ship. It was lovely and we were very happy with it. I'll start with the positives:

- excellent service, from our stateroom stewards and from the staff in the dining room. A special "shout out" to Havat, our dining room steward, who was very helpful & made us feel like honored guests.

- overall service on the ship was very good.

Cabin Review

Signature Superior Verandah Suite

Cabin SS

This was our 1st time in a Signature Suite. Usually we book a verandah stateroom. We liked the extra space & amenities very much. Overall we were very happy with the condition of the room & particularly with the service from our stewards.

Port Reviews


Took shuttle bus offered by city of Melbourne from port to central business district. Walked around & discovered Melbourne on our own, shopped and had lunch. Highlight for us was the arcades and laneways.


Highlight was Te Papa museum. A must see. Was very much worth paying for a 1 hour guided tour. Highly recommend that. Also enjoyed walking around & exploring the city on our own. Spent a very nice morning & early afternoon in the city
