We enjoyed a great cruise to Bermuda. Ship is older, but very well kept up and we had no concerns. Food and service by the wait staff is second to none - also the friendliest people were on this ship. Food is excellent - many choices in either upscale dining, Lido buffet, or even room service - everything is served with a smile. We enjoyed the entertainment - the shows, comedians and talented musicians, and participated in most of the trivia games, which were lots of fun. The captain was very informative and personable - seas were a bit rough on the way to Bermuda, but he kept us informed. We were also late in arriving due to a "whale watch" - again we were advised as to why and we received a small credit on our account. The cruise director was Becca, our first lady cruise director, and her assistant was Jordan - both were very pleasant and easy to joke around with and talk too. We are an older couple that have cruised on several lines and we find that Holland America never disappoints.

Great cruise!

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin G 704
Plenty of room to turn my mobility scooter and good shower with a seat and many hand bars for balance. Port holes are difficult to see out of but it is nice to have the natural light.
I would definitely choose this cabin again.
