Review summary

Pretty good cruise overall. See comment above regarding deck chair noise in 8147 from the Lido deck. Service seemed a bit less than we've encountered on other Holland America cruises. Still very good but somewhat inconsistent (except the Pinnacle Room and Bar).

Lido food seemed to be in a bit of a rut. Pinnacle Room was very good as usual

Seems to be showing a bit of age. Cushions on the Promenade deck were very dirty and beat up in many cases.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Only issue was the non-mandatory alarm wake up noise at 6:30 every morning as the crew put out the deck chairs on the Lido deck. Would be nice if this occurred at about 7:30. Really irritating given the fact of the cost of a Neptune suite.
