Sail Date: Feb 2019

My girlfriend and I, both 23 took this cruise in februari. We are from The Netherlands and wanted to experience a cruise in the Caribbean.

We chose Holland America line because of the ports and good value for money, as described in many other reviews, they service is towards older people. But still an reasonable amount of 20 / 30 year old.

We had a forward balcony stateroom on deck 4. The room was just right for two of us.
