This was the first time I had been on a Holland America Line Cruise Ship and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience from the first class service to the beautiful ship.
The theatre was an incredible experience with the BBC presentations.
The dining was very good throughout the ship and I appreciated the food stations in the restaurant where you were served rather than people helping themselves. This approach certainly lessens the chance of people handling the food items themselves then putting it back for someone else to take. Hence, less risk of becoming sick from others on board.
