Magnificent Mediterranean!

The best part of this cruise was the amazing ports of call. Each was unique and beautiful. The excursions we chose were for the most part very enjoyable.  The whole Mediterranean experience was an unforgettable one. We agree, however, that the Holland America cruise line leaves much to be desired. Cabin service was fine but food and service in the dining area was substandard. We would not recommend Holland America as cruise line of choice for Europe. 


Cabin / Stateroom
We loved our cabin.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Easiest and smoothest for any cruise we have taken.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
We do not drink alcohol and almost all the activities revolved around alcohol.
Children's Programs No children
The comedian and young singer were very good. Our favorite group was the B B King band. We enjoyed them every night.
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward, Ali, was great! It was the service in the buffet dining that was almost nonexistent.
Food and Dining
Food-just okay. Food service in the buffet, nonexistent. We got everything on our own and had to ask to have a table cleaned in order to sit down to eat. When dining in the main dining room service was better.
Barcelona, Spain
Toulon, France
Monte Carlo, Monaco
It is so small you can see it all without booking an excursion. We did book a half day and went to some of the other French Riviera cities. I wasn't disappointed but would have preferred to stay in Monaco.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We booked only the transfer and did our own thing. Be well prepared if you do this. I had made a reservation at the Accademia to see the David before we left home. You must do this if you are planning to see it or the Uffizi. Otherwise the lines are too long. Our guide gave us an excellent map that included suggestions of what can be covered in the 5 hours you have.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Cruise Strait Of Messina
Taormina, Sicily
Corfu, Greece
Kotor, Montenegro


Book another cruise line. We were not impressed.
