Review summary

Half Moon Cay was great private beach. Very clean, plenty of lounge chairs at no cost. Lunch provided was good. Went horseback riding in the ocean, staff was great. We traveled with another couple. We went on one shore excursion at every port. They were all well worth the cost. Tendering process to and from the ship

 went well and was very efficient. This was our first time on Holland American. It was a much older senior crowd than expected, average age was 65+. There were only 11 kids total on the ship so kids weren't a problem. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We would go again.

We went zip lining. Had a great time. Disliked all the people trying to sell stuff in your face when you got off the ship.
