We have done a number of cruises with Holland America and always enjoy them. embarkation was smooth. Cabin crew were very good as was food. One of the staff in Tamarind remembered up from a cruise in 2017 which surprised and pleased us. Did not care for a couple of entertainers but not a big issue. Cruise director who we had sailed with twice before (Nick) is great and hope to see him again. Already have another cruise booked with Holland and one with Princess.
Ship is well maintained and crew very friendly. We will likely not do this cruise again but won't hesitate to sail with Holland America again. Daily trivia was like always fun and a great way to meet people. Not a big fan of changes made to Crows Nest I prefer when it was a bar.
Dined at both Pinnacle and Tamarind and enjoyed both but Tamarind wins first place in my mind.
cabin well maintained with no issues. great cabin attendants
live close by so it is just a starting off point
Favorite port in California
