As mentioned earlier, this cruise was disappointing. Holland America has changed considerably and I would rank it equal to Royal Caribbean and a step above Carnival. It is not a luxury cruise. People not dressing for gala nights, dining room food just ok. No traditional presentations of food (baked alaska), no dutch hat nights and it was hard to get to know the crew (other than the cabin steward).
