Review summary

I chose this cruise because of the ports that it went to and for the most part, the ports did not disappoint me. The food and staff were excellent. The string quartet and the pianist who played in Oceans Lounge, as well as the two girls that played piano in the Billboard Onboard (Ivy and Polina) were all superb!! The idea of "Buy one drink, get one for $2" seemed to be a big hit with people. Also, people seemed to enjoy the gameshow participation activities too.

There wasn't enough onboard activities for me. I enjoyed the pools but I wish there were other things to keep me busy. Other cruise ships that I have been on have had many more things to do during the day and night that interested me.

Ship tip

I didn't realize that there are mostly older people that go on the Holland America line. At 65, I felt young! There was bingo that was offered for prizes such as a free cruise, but it cost $35 to play four games. I think most of the elderly people on the ship would have liked to play more often if the price were lower. It discouraged many people from playing.
