Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Chose Holland due to the voyage only, was a big mistake. Ship needs to be in dry dock. Dining windows cracked top to bottom. Weathered, could hardly see out them. Cabin window siliconed with rust. Shower either scalded, or froze u. Lavatory leaked water everyday. Cabin boy woke us up at 5:30 everyday collecting ice from ice machine across the hall. Said ice machine was out on his floor as well as the dining room. Our friends ceiling leaked water in the cabin, curtain rod fell off on him, hair dryer caught on fire. Norovirus for several wks. Because elderly people would not abide by rules and wash hands and stay in their room. I have been in 32 cruises with many companies. I am also a senior, but, this was the worst group of walking dead I have ever encountered. The fussed about everything, insisted they eat at same table at 5:15 earch night. Saved seats for 1st show, therefore, the rest of us always had to wait until 7:30 to eat dinner, always had to attend late shows, etc. They chose anytime dining , but, insisted on eating at 5 each night therefore controlling those of us that wanted to eat at 6 or 7. Terrible experience, never again HOLLAND!
