The Entertainment was the highlight of the Cruise——-it was our first experience and even though we had some quite rough weather for 2 days , we had an amazing time. We met so many interesting people and were able to meet our favourite entertainers. It felt like we were back in Ireland! Can’t wait to go in 2020 and enjoy it all again! Gertrude Byrne does an amazing job , she greets everyone on arrival and is there to say goodbye.It is a very welcoming atmosphere and Holland America crew were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We made many new friends on the Cruise and there were several people on board that we knew. We have told many of our Irish friends and anyone who enjoys music and dancing that this is the best .It was also very nice to have Catholic Mass each morning which was very well attended and especially

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VB
Very happy with our cabin———did not spend a lot of time in it only to sleep! Since this was our first Cruise we thought it was best to have a balcony.
