Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

We chose Holland America because of th itineraries. We have sailed with HAL 7 times over 10 plus years. And I want people to know our experience.

Firstly, we had planned this cruise for our 42nd Anniversary. My wife is vegan and I am vegetarian. We planned the cruise for over 2 years, actually as soon as the 2020 itineraries came out. I had constantly been in contact with ship services in regard to my wife's dietary needs. We were assured on numerous occasions had there would be no problems.

This was the first cruise in 5 years with Holland because they have failed each and every time we have sailed. We decided to give it another try because veggie menus are now very main stream , we figured they would have got the vegan thing figured out. It was abysmal.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Quite nice, however I accidently spilt some tea on my sheet on the bed, that didn't get changed for 5 days.

Port Reviews

Half Moon Cay

If you take a 21 day cruise the ship goes to the island twice. Once is enough. Pick another port.

Grand Turk

We went to the beach, which is right next to the beach. Very nice day.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Went to a resort, it was fantastic. The best excursion by a mile.

Aruba

Most definately the best of th ABC's very nice stop

Martinique

Horrible stop. The locals are not friendly.

Barbados

Very nice, well organised beach with sun loungers and umbrellas. Good stop.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Walked around the town, enjoyed it. And the monkeys to.
