Review summary

We have taken 10 cruises on 4 lines but this was our first Holland America experience. We felt that, overall, this cruise included the best food and entertainment of any we have taken. The food was delicious. We especially appreciated that the desserts were actually sweet. The quality, professionalism and skill of the entertainers was superior to that found on our other cruises. The ship offers fewer options for fun (such as rock-wall, golf, water features, etc.) and the program offers fewer entertainment options. But it we enjoyed being mellow.
