Review summary

Didn’t think the ABC islands were that impressive- other than the Holland influence. Ship and Holland line are good- true there are a lot of older people- not usually a problem except for the staff! There are still active folks on board too.

Once we got thru the security line we were on the ship in 5 minutes.

Food and Dining

Clean, excellent service per Holland standards, food not quite as good as last year. Canneleto excellent; pinnacle grill seemed short staffed; food just OK. Dining room staff go overboard to please.

Onboard Activities

America’s test kitchen great. Spa and gym as well as thermotherapy pool very nice. Notes whiskey tasting fun.

All excellent- bathroom cleaning a bit marginal but all it took was a comment to the room steward.

Like the konnigsdam. Very clean

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Great roomy cabin - but very windy in the front of the ship. Balcony wraps- is solid so must stand to look out.

Ship tip

Elegant, excellent service. An older crowd that enjoys food, higher end alcohol and good music. Lots of Trivia events.

Ports of call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
