Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Chose this cruise because we had never been to Spain and we like the Holland cruises. Two sea days and 10 ports. Stayed 2 days in Ramblas district of Barcelona before our cruise and loved the city! Didn't book any of the Holland cruises because they were too expensive so made arrangements for tours before we left home.

Dining room service was impeccable and most of the dinners were wonderful, presented beautifully and did not disappoint. However, there were just a few low points. I love Caesar Salad and was disappointed that the salad arrived wilted. Tried it in the Pinnacle Grill and it was only marginally better even after I made a point of asking them to make sure the salad was freshly tossed. Not all romaine either. One evening, I opted to have a chicken mango salad for my entree and found it curious that although it was one of the title ingredients, there were exactly three tiny thin slices of mango on the plate.

We did not use spa services this trip because of the heavy sales pressure to buy products during last year's Alaska cruise so can't comment on the Spa this trip. I also avoid any of their health and beauty seminars because I found in the past they were just thinly veiled attempts to, once again, sell products or services.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VB

Cabin was pretty roomy, had lots of closets, cupboards and drawer space to accommodate all of the clothes and sundries we brought for the two week cruise. Cabin stewards were all friendly and attentive and the room was tidied at least twice a day. Carpets could use replacing as they seemed a tad worn out to me. I saw stewards going to another cabin with a carpet cleaner mid-cruise and it reminded me to always wear my flip-flops in the room.
