Review summary

Disappointed. We are 4 star with Holland and were excluded from the medal ceremony. We are always included, but not this time. Holland has dumb downed their activities and disappointed. Liked the size of the ship and their personnel. Feel like they don't care like they used to do. Several said the same. Looking at other cruise lines now.

Ary, Pinnacle Grill restaurant really good! Thumbs up to both wait staff and our cabin stewards. Thanks to you for our lunch bonus and Janet Castro.

Yes, but sometimes too much paint smell. (Shellac). Bad in theater. Had to leave lectures twice.

Cabin / Stateroom

Stewards really good. Great teamwork. Loved the folded towels and ice several times a day.

It is an older ship, so be prepared and roll with the punches.
