We had a good time on the cruise due to the fact that we were with friends. I don't know how in good conscience, Holland America could leave Tampa and take this ship to Europe. Half of the time, the toilets did not work, there was a terrible stench in the halls. The air conditioning did not work half the time either. I and about half of the ship, came down with upper respiratory infections, from the unhealthy circulation of the air. The ice machine on our floor never did work. This ship needs a major overhaul, at least their heating and cooling systems. We have been on eight HAL line cruises, but if this is indicative of their upkeep, it will be our last.Thank you.
