Beautiful new ship and awesome crew! Holland America staff are awesome and all all very helpful and friendly. I travelled with my 81 year old father who was in a wheel chair most of the time and they were always available to assist when needed and to accommodate our requests. the ship is modern and very easy to get around. It is definitely not a party boat and would be great for people who like good food, great service and not a lot of crowds. The entertainment is some what geared to the older crowd and you will not find a lot of variety in the music around the ship but if you want a relaxing vacation and you like things on the quieter side, this is a great ship to go on.

Pros: great service, nice ship, great food, not crowded

Cons: slots at casino, pools closing too early
