Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Window

Wanted to see the tulips and the surrounding areas in Holland We started in Amsterdam and had a marvelous time. The cruise did offer some wonderful off board excursions that were well done, our guides, for the most part, were excellent. My only problem with the cruise was the "happy hour" - which offered drinks at half price for a couple of hours and the "snacks" were pretzels or nuts. The cruise I was on before had wonderful hors d'oeuvres both hot and cold and a different variety every night and beverages, all included!

The entertainment was a lot of fun, and offered a variety. The gentleman that played the piano during the happy hour was wonderful, not an exceptional piano player, but an really nice and friendly performer. The staff was fantastic, very engaging, and that was from the housekeepers to the servers and the cruise director was wonderful. Would I do this again, yes!
