From the moment we arrived at the port we knew our cruise was going to be a wonderful experience. We were welcomed at the embarkation point with friendly Holland America personnel. The check-in process was seamless. As we entered the ship we were warmly greeted and escorted up the elevator to the Lido Restaurant where our eyes feasted not only on the views from the huge windows that span from one end of the restaurant to the other, but also by the gorgeous food. We had a wonderful lunch and very shortly thereafter were able to access our stateroom, which was beautiful and welcomed us with fresh fruit, which was replenished each day . The ship is beautiful and very easy to navigate. The wrap-around deck is a wonderful feature.
Sail Date: February 01, 2007
Pros: The food, veranda stateroom, cleanliness, tours of the ship, the wrap-around deck.
Cons: The small hot tubs. They should either be larger or there should be more of them. However, we were still able to use them without having to wait very long.
