Fantastic Transatlantic Crossing

Call it luck but the Atlantic Ocean was smooth as glass on our 14 day transatlantic cruise.  ALL the staff were friendly, helpful exceptional people.

Incredible choices in food.  Pinnacle Restaurant exceptional. Fresh Flowers and Orchids throughout the ship...a definite plus!

The only thing I found not to my liking were their Elemis Products as they all contained parabens. That should be something Holland America should definitely change.

Great food, Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Cathedral is an unbelievable, ongoing work of Art. Picasso Museum...his art was very understandable after being in his museum in Malaga.


We enjoyed as you wish dining. Lots of flexibility.
