I'll keep this short - this was a senior citizen cruise. If you like to lay around the pool in total silence (usually), or on rare occasion listen to piped in classical or elevator lite jazz type music, have food served to you soft and unsalted, and activities aimed toward the senior crowd, this is the cruise for you.
It would have been greatly appreciated if someone had told us at the time of booking that this is what Holland America was offering. We would have booked elsewhere.
Never again.....we couldn't wait to get home.

Ship is spotless. Unfortunately lots of it is cordoned off for those paying premium prices for additional features. Being a mid size ship, having large spaces cordoned off makes the ship seem smaller than it is.
