Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Holland America is a quality cruise when it comes to staff and they didn't let us down once again. All staff are quite friendly, professional and helpful. The ship is nice and is a solid 4 and is so because it does have some wear. The food is varied and excellent and they'll go out of their way to have and serve you just what you want. All you have to do is ask! Room service was exceptional and included so do be sure to take advantage of it! We always have breakfast and simply tip a few dollars as a courtesy. The port stops on this port intensive cruise are simply wonderful and there was ample time at most. Using Cruise Critic to find small group excursions made them amazing and it's s fun way to meet fellow passengers. Embarkation and debarkation were both effortless, especially if you can take care of your own luggage.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VB

Nice sized cabin in the aft section of the ship. The balcony has plenty of room for sitting in the chair with your feet propped up. You also have a good view from both the bed and couch. There were no noise issues whatsoever. The bathroom is a nice size with a regular sized tub. The room does have some wear, otherwise would have been a 5 star.

Port Reviews

Alicante

Free walking Tour of Alicante was fabulous! They do suggest a tip of $10 to $15 a person and it's well worth it! They meet in an easy to find location not far from the ship.

Malta (Valletta)

This was probably the very best tour on the entire trip! Alfredo with My Maltese Guide was exceptional! This all day tour is worth your time and money!
