This is a tough review to write because on one hand, getting back out on the water and cruising was the most welcome respite from an otherwise awful 18ish months of hell due to the pandemic, but on the other hand, there were a number of hiccups and overall issues that prevented this from being the experience that we'd hoped for.

1) Experience on board/Embarkation process:

Embarkation was a breeze- my wife and I had all of our documents and were prepared, and we learned that (provided you've made an effort and can DEMONSTRATE AS MUCH) Holland will provide you a rapid antigen test at the dock IF you have a receipt of a test but haven't yet received the results. Don't use this as a safety valve or excuse NOT to take one 2 days before; if you don't have one and can't demonstrate that you've earnestly tried, you're going to be SOL.
