Review summary

Absolutely gorgeous, beautiful cruise. Nature alone is the reason to take this cruise. The ship is just where you eat and rest. Holland did an overall great job, except for the rocky start with our room issues. We wish this didn't happen but could've been worse. Really did appreciate the overall itinerary and stops. Highly recommended!

Embarkation was not great. Our balcony had broken chairs that we had to call in. To add insult to injury, they weren't even the standard balcony chair, they were from the pool area. The shower was also clogged from the start.

Food and Dining

General food was amazing! did not do specialty restaurants as extra $$ and extra $$ for lobster...

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Holland's entertainment was mostly mediocre, catered to an older class of cruisers. Makes for a really relaxing and quiet cruise though.

Overall I would say poor. It used to be great. We can tell they made cut-backs. One REALLY great dance group just 2 nights though.

Cabin / Stateroom

Overall great to have a balcony. However it does not get 5 stars as at embarkation the deck chairs were broken and not even the right type, plus the clogged shower.

Ship tip

Do not expect go-kart tracks, rock climbing, or overall active activities.
