It's a nice size ship with very few children so it's great for someone who wants a relaxing restful environment while sailing.

It was ok, very different from any other cruise I have taken. Not sure if that is due to a different cruis line, or because of COVID...

Awesome ship to relax on. Always a chair available at the pool. There’s not a lot of entertainment per se, but it’s not boring.

One piece advise that I’d give a new cruiser is Food is always at the back of the ship and the Entertainment is near the Front of the ship

Make reservations for spa, excursions, and restaurants early. We are so grateful we did this prior to embarkation because we saw so many people struggling on the first day to book everything. Plan early and you'll be great!

Lower your expectations! I don’t know if it’s just growing post pandemic recovery pains or if Holland has always been like this - it was our first cruise with them. The staff was not all that friendly, the entertainment was minimal and low quality and the food was horrible unless you want to pay to upgrade to decent fare.

This is a nice ship. Since this was my first cruise was not sure what to think. But I fell in love with cruising on this cruise. My wife says she created a monster. Every chance we get now I'm booking another cruise.

The spa package was worth it. Buy a drinks package.

enjoy lunch in the dining room on sea days. The Lido csn be noisy -music in the Lido should be turnrd down. cleansing of hands before entry needs to be better reinforced. own

Get a room with a veranda. It is well worth the extra price!
