Review summary

SEATING FOR DINNER WAS MESSED UP FROM THE FIRST NIGHT WE WERE ON THE CRUISE. EACH NIGHT WAS AN ISSUE. WAITING HOURS FOR FOOD TO ARRIVE. AIR CONDITIONER IN ONE CABIN NOT WORKING, WAS NOT FIXED UNTIL OUR LAST NIGHT. CARDS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. FEES ADDED THAT WE WERE NOT AWARE OF AT THE TIME OF BOOKING! WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH HOLLAND AMERICA AGAIN!

Embarkation

Embarking was fine. It was once we were on the ship that things went downhill.
