All entertainment was top-notch!!! We especially liked the Amsterdam Singers and Dancers!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was willing when they understood what we wanted. Their command of English wasn't as good as on previous HAL cruises. No assistance with trays in the Lido dining room.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was good, decor was fine and public areas great except for the dirty windows. The Hubbard Glacier would have looked better through clean windows in the Crows Nest!!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The oceanview room had dirty porthole windows. The room was so small we didn't have a table and had to ask for a chair. It was clean and the room attendant was great..kept our ice bucket full always.
