I chose this cruise because it was cheap, right time of the year and I wanted to go there.

Well you get what you pay for. The staff was there for peddling things not much in the free service department.I got nickled and dimed to death. Dinner in the dining room was mildly warm and when I checked out the menu and saw something that I liked I ate at the buffet same food but prepared there and reasonably hot.They should dock this ship for a few days and give it a real cleaning. Staff are overworked and I get the feeling that most of them have given up. I have a few more incidents but It's too much trouble for a lost cause. This was my fourth trip with Holland and each one was worst than the last. Save your money or find a better cruise line. A few more dollars on another cruise line would have hit the mark! Never again Holland America.
