Review summary

it is amazing how a bout of food poisoning can ruin a wonderful cruise. It did for us. In room dining --bad!


entertainment - shows marginal but best time with cruise director and show host with trivia. 


Best music- bob kings blues club! Wow!


lido- spectacular changes! Great selection. 


Cabins- phenomenal stewards!  Superior furnishings!


disembarkation-  Hellish process if your flight home leaves before 11 am!   If it does, YOU have to carry your own bags OFF THE SHIP!  That means you have to get in long snaking lines before you get off the ship. IT IS A NightMare,  add winsult to injury you are greeted by a line of entertainers on land thanking you for cruising!


this is a change for holland and not for the good.
