We chose this cruise because we had cruised on Holland to Alaska and the timing fit our schedule. We loved the ship, absolutely beautiful. The open seating option for dinner was great, music was wonderful. We felt there could be more entertainment in the evenings, music every night got a bit boring for us. Staff seemed very happy and eager to serve. We loved Holland’s private island, Georgetown in Grand Cayman. Falmouth in Jamaica was so-so, very poor area outside of the port, be careful if you venture out on your own, take a tour. We liked the shopping in Cozumel. Deck 3 is great for walking laps. Beautiful fitness center. The food overall was very good, lots of fruits and vegetables if you want to focus on eating healthy. Lido Buffett on the 9th level was always consistently good with lots of choices. We highly recommend the ship and this cruise.
