Sail Date: May 2022

Two week cruise of Norway, with stop in Amsterdam in the middle. The ship felt new, and very clean. The staff was amazing, friendly, with many greeting you by name. The meals in the main dining room were delicious. Really enjoyed the multiple courses of small portions. The waiters in the main dining room quickly learn your names, and preferences. Specialty dining at Tamerin was fantastic. Lido was usually quite crowded, but occasionally went for breakfast and lunch, and the food was top quality. The Lincoln Center Stage performers were really top notch. Enjoyed each of their performances. The cruise directors lectures were very interesting. She did a fantastic job of presenting those. Norway is a beautiful country. Waterfalls, Fjords, great hiking, amazing views. The main theatre shows were not at the level of previous Holland America cruises, but were still enjoyable. Embarkation, and disembarkation was very efficient, with no delays. All in all a great cruise.

Cabin Review

Nice new cabin with front facing ocean view. Felt large. Nice bathroom.
