It's a pretty easy ship to get around on, but review the deck plans beforehand so you'll have a general idea where everything is as soon as you get on the ship. It's easy to remember that the dining room and music venues are are deck 2, the world stage for shows on deck 3, and the lido deck for buffet and pools on deck 9.

Our overall satisfaction is we extremly satisfied. By the way, productivity point of you, we feel that to serve drinks by the table durind breakfest, and lunch is not really necessary. We understood the point, you want to provide great service, but this is really a self service restaurant. Compering with other cruise lines, the staff was must better on this ship. We are travelling a lot, this was a first time with Holland America line, but deffinetly not the last. We would be able to enjoy more activities, but we also understanding, that mainly older people are travelling with you, and they dont really need dancing programs :)
