Review summary

This was my first cruise with Holland America and could not be happier!  The ship was tastefully decorated, staff at every level was courteous and friendly and I liked the little touches that made the week special.  My only small complaint was that the food in the lido for dinner became to feel like it was repetitive but we could have avoided that by eating in the dining room more often.  We stopped in Key West, Grand Turk, Amber Cove and Half Moon Cay.

Loved the Greenhouse Spa. My husband did the Therma Spa Package so we had access every day. It was such a nice treat every day!

Cabin / Stateroom

Great view from our balcony! Loved the small bathtub and the decent sized TV. Only complaint was that cabin is below the pool deck so had some noise of deck chairs being moved around during peak times

Ship tip

Loved cocktails in the Crows Nest during "Happy Hour". Pinnacle Grill a great choice for dinner upgrade. Loved the fresh fruit bowl in the cabin each day. Buy the Therma Suite Package through the Greenhouse Spa, ultimate relaxation!

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Busy port! Pre cruise we stayed at Ramada Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port. it was nothing fancy but had complimentary airport and Cruise transfers so it was stress free, It was under construction so they are doing upgrades. On the end of the trip we stayed at Sun Tower Suites, awesome view and a friendly fun hotel!

Key West, Florida

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
It was rainy the day we were in Grand Turk so unfortunately we didn't spend much time on the beach. We booked an Island Tour at the port. Not too much else on the Island except for the fabulous beach! We walked 10 mins down from the port and went to Jacks Shack and had a local beer and conch fritters. Fun stop!

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We did the Puerta Plata Cultural Experience and really enjoyed it. Great driver and guide and an interesting day with a good lunch!

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
We caught the earlier tender off the ship and had rented a clamshell for $20 for 2. A great option if you want a break from the sun! We were able to have a pick of the clamshells and then went on a short tour of the island to see what the service were. Loved Half Moon Cay! The water and beach are the stars!
