For Hollands reputation and value. We were with Holland last fall and go with them for the food and age group. We are almost a four star category. However this ship did not reach the level we expected. The food wasn't that good in the dining room to which we ended up buying five dinners in the private dining rooms. Jeans were allowed in. Food taste and quality also the presentation was very poor. We come to be able to dance and there was only two nights on this back to back cruise. Then the band was pulled and there was NO dancing. Captains cocktail party ... all dressed up and nothing. Shows were weak. When you show a movie along with live music we don't consider this show worthy. Pool taken over by the kids, babies in diapers. The adult pool is out in the sun with NO shade and lounges with no pads. Can't expect seniors to stay there. Put the kids in the back. Bathroom stalls out of service for days. Deserts were weak..lots of mousse type things. A piece of pie with raw crust. The workers were wonderful. This was our 81st cruise so we feel we had something to compare it too. Many cut backs not what cruising used to be. We always went with Holland for the food and dancing which is what is important to us. Now that it has been removed we will sail with others.

Frustrating

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin F 1067
Cabin was comfortable and clean. Television is not user friendly. The room had a tub/shower...the setting of the temp and shower took instructions from the steward.
Room stewards were very good.
