I am totally sold on Holland America - Just finished my 19 day Panama Canal Cruise - Started in Ft. Lauderdale. Visited Cartagena, Panama Canal , Corinto, Nicaragua, Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica, Huatulco, Mexico Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - San Francisco, Vancouver, and ended in Seatle.
Embarkation went well - my cabin was ready - #3377 - Lunch at the Lido Market Buffet was very good.
Food on the cruise was very good - they have the same food in the Lido Buffet as in the Dining Room - We didn't want to go to the Dining Room on Gala night for Lobster so we had Lobster in the Buffet (I had four!)
Cabin #1899 is very nice - it is a good size and convenient to the elevators.
The Lido Buffet is very good - the wait staff are wonderful.
I would have liked a little more activity around the pool - but the pools are very nice.
