Wonderful 7 days , great food, service,ship, stateroom - Holland America is great. We were on Deck # 7 close to stairs and elevator - very convenient. Ship was very very quiet at night unlike the last cruise we took on the NCL Getaway. Service for cabin staff was amazing, our cabin was spotless (one of the cleanest cabins we have ever had), they were friendly and very accomodating. The rest of crew were great as well with the especially those in the Pinnacle Grill and the Grand Dutch Cafe! Food was one of the best we have experienced in the last few years. The Pinnacle Grill and Grand Dutch Cafe really stand out. The food in the Lido Buffet was very good, had a great variety of choices. The ship itself is kept very clean. Very easy to find a quiet spot to catch a few rays of sunshine. My only negative comment is the fact smoking is allowed in the casino. They need to ban this on all cruise ships!, or at a minimum have at least a couple of smoke free evenings in the casino like they do on Holland America's sister line Princess.
