Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2009
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

My husband and I are seasoned cruisers and we aim to cross as many major lines of latitude and longitude on a ship as possible, so we were excited by this one as it meant crossing the International Date Line and indeed (from leaving home in the UK to arriving back) circumnavigating the globe.

Whilst this was our 23rd cruise it was our first time with Holland America Line. The embarkation process at Seattle was very efficient and streamlined, and we boarded in time for a buffet lunch in the Lido restaurant which we ate by the pool - a place we were to frequent regularly.

Our cabin was a twin-bedded one on the Main Deck (Deck 2) right at the starboard bow of the vessel. It was very quiet and comfortable and we were served by Choky, our very pleasant Indonesian cabin steward.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin G

The cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable but not recommended in rough seas as the waves sometimes crashed against the portholes. Probably better to go midships.
