Holland America 7 Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: November 16, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Our Holland America cruise was very enjoyable. Our group of 10 family members cruised the week before Thanksgiving and visited the Eastern Caribbean. We dined in the main dining room all but one evening and thoroughly enjoyed our fabulous wait staff, especially "Reggie" who always greeted our group with a smile and amazed us with his magic tricks and origami creations. The theater shows were well done and entertaining, as well as the various trivia games by the cruise director. Room service and lido deck pools and food service were spot on. Unlike another cruise line we traveled, the majority of guests on this cruise were in the 40-70 age range and there were only a dozen small children aboard. Also traveling this time of year allowed us to access the pools and hot tubs without overcrowding. The only negative was with the electricity for my husband's C-pap machine. I am not sure if  this was due to unexpected surges or something else, but my brother also had similar issues in his room. All in all, we had a marvelous time both on and off the ship. I highly recommend this cruise line.

Bring an extension cord if you need to plug anything in bedside.
Grand Turk Island
Unless you do an excursion, the area right off the ship is highly commercialized.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We hiked the rain forest which was great and ate local cuisine at a restaurant near the port dock.

Recommend a guided tour as they drive on the left side of the road.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) Unable to disembark due to weather.
