Fantastic ship with wonderful staff.This was our first Holland & America cruise but wont be our last!. The ship has great areas to relax but plenty to do if needed. The pool areas are good but if you want no noise just go to observation deck at front of ship this is a great place to chill out on your own as its never busy. The deluxe staterooms have great perks with use of neptune lounge and priority embarkment & disembarkment and also priority at ports you tender at. Rooms are great size and beds are sooooo good.The Pinnacle Grill is well worth the extra charge it was that good we went 3 times and the Taramind is also excellent. The Manhatan " as you wish dining " does not work well if there is just 2 of you that dont want to share. Laundry service is something they need to work on but everything else is first classs. We cant wait to go on our next Holland & America cruise.

Pros: Pinnacle Grill

Cons: Manhatan
