The embarking process was very organized. Our bags were waiting for us at our room. Service was awesome in dining rooms and cocktail lounges. I am a late night person and would have like to have the lounges open late. Room service and front desk crews were friendly and helpful. The food quality and selections were above expectation-all plates were prepared as requested. The wait staff accommodated all requested changes to substitute menu items. The staff was able to arrange a table for our entire party (8) each night of the cruise at the same time, having the same waiter enhanced the dining experience. Housekeeping on the boat was excellent everything was kept clean. The quality of the entertainment was very good, but repetitious each night. The shore excursions were informative, the tour guides were knowledgeable and made the excursions interesting. My expectations for the cruise were high and the crew delivered. Holland America stressed the importance of good hygiene during the cruise that helped insure a safe and healthy trip for all. We would travel again with Holland America
