Choose this cruise to primarily see Singapore and the various ports of call. Overall, the ship is very confusing. Not enough signage at the elevators. Constantly found myself heading in the wrong direction. The food on this ship was poor, at best. Steaks ordered medium and delivered well done. Shrimp cocktail was served luke warm instead of icy cold. And the buffet was not good at all. Bad layout, bad selection, dried out food. The entertainment was right out of the 80s.old and outdated. One of the make singers could not even sing and they gave him opera? The casino was so tight it wasn't even fun to play. On previous cruises from Holland America, the machines were loose and fun to play. The casino on the Holland ship was always packed. This one, empty most of the time. Living in Vegas, I know what tight machines are. These were much tighter. Overall, the cruise was relaxing once I accepted the shortcomings. Holland America will still be my first choice, at least thus far. Next month we try Norwegian.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IB Baja 525
Small but workable. First time in a inside cabin. Miss knowing if it was day or night. Next time I will either get a balcony or see if there is an inside with a little more room.
