A 14 day out of Seattle will attract us every time. Holland America has wonderful crews and customer service. The ports included on this particular trip are very nice, of course some better than others. Would do it again.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Mostly ate at the buffet. Main dining room only twice and Canalettos once. Canalettos - 10, Main Dining Room - 8, Lido Buffet - 8

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
This is an older age group so the activities are focused on that. We enjoyed what we went to.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Older ship but very nice. There have been some upgrades but more are needed for sure.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Good location as far as convince. Fully obstructed view but we didn't mind. Noisy when anchoring or arriving/leaving port.

Ship tip

Deck 6 is very convenient to access the outside walking deck. It is also covered in case of rainy weather for viewing glaciers, etc.
