December 2014 - Zuiderdam to Caribbean - Western
We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this trip. Even thought the furnishings and decor of the boat were slightly dated, the boat was in great shape. Our Veranda Stateroom was extremely comfortable and roomier than similar cabins on other boats. Every member of the staff and crew was exceedingly kind, courteous, pleasant, and friendly. By day two of the cruise, several of the crew and staff already knew us by name and spoke with us personally anytime we passed. The food was amazing. Unlike some other cruise lines, Holland America never pushed us to purchase shore excursions or retail items either in port or aboard the ship. It was a no-pressure cruise to say the least. This was our first Holland America cruise, but it will definitely not be the last.
