This was my first Holland America cruise. From their reputation I expected a top quality service and food. We got neither. I found myself ordering the lesser of the evils on the dinner menu! I like to try new foods, just most of them didn't sound like they'd be good! Service was good in most cases, not outstanding as I'd expected from a cruise line with such a good reputation.

Pier is too far from shopping area. We had to hire a cab to take us to town.
