Cabin:

The ship was beautiful and spotless. Food in the buffet was outstanding (best buffet at sea in my opinion). Food was not as good in the main dining room except for the Culinary Council dinner midway through the cruise. Service in the main dining room was also not very good: The servers were rushed and harried and empty plates sat on tables. The stateroom was very attractive and well-appointed. Thoughtful touches such as USB outlets everywhere and adjustable reading lights on either side of the bed. Nice flat-screen TV opposite the bed. Terrific shower in the attractive yet small bathroom. We purchased premium internet but the service struggled to even load photographs on Instagram; was good for email only. Forget about streaming any video. We didn't really mind though. The public spaces were all very attractive and comfortable. Excellent gym and spa. Embarkation and disembarkation was extremely easy and quick (best of any cruise we've ever taken). Having already sailed on the nearly identical sister ships Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, I'm sure we'll sail on a HAL Pinnacle-class ship again.

Cabin Review

The stateroom was very attractive and well-appointed. Thoughtful touches such as USB outlets everywhere and adjustable reading lights on either side of the bed. Terrific shower in the attractive yet small bathroom. Nice veranda with two adjustable chairs, footrests, and a small low table.
