  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Large Oceanview Stateroom

Love cruising on Holland. The food was excellent in the dining room. We moved once due to a poor waiter and ended up with an amazing young man that truly exceeded any expectations we had. Also enjoy the Dutch cafe. Wish they offered longer hours for breakfast and at night.

Activities are very limited unless you want to spend money to sample wines, whiskey or other alcohol related activities. Other than the MicroSoft classes and trivia games there are no crafts, scavenger hunts or free activities that are offered on many other cruise lines.

The bands in the Rolling Stones and BB King rooms were very good. Also really enjoyed the piano player/singers in the Billboard and the Holland band.

The entertainment in the showroom left much to be desired. The impressionist and the first comedian(Wing) were good and the piano player but everything else was very poor.

Holland still offers complimentary room service which we use in the morning.

The ports were nice. We do not use Holland excursions but book ours either on Viator or Expedia prior to the cruise or find one in port. Saves us money and we have never been disappointed.

Casino is very smokey! Wish they would eliminate smoking there. Casino is very tight!

Four of us travel together. We had two ocean view cabins that were nice with tons of storage.

Overall Holland still offers excellent customer service and food

Cabin Review

Large Oceanview Stateroom

Nice cabin with plenty of storage.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Have been there several times. Nice day to wander and shop.

Not very organized in beginning but overall a nice tour of the island with plenty of time in Marigot to see the planes.
