Choose open seating and dine with different people each evening to enhance your enjoyment
The lido made a very nice sticky bun every morning!
The lido had the best omelet I have eaten.
Liked the computer classes how about apple products?
get up at 6 am to secure a chair by the pool!!!
Find another cruise line one thing that greatly upsets me is lying and half truths. The Cruise director was the most obnoxious person I have ever met. His typical comment if you had a concern was and I quote "if you don't like it take another cruise line" and we will
The Crow's Nest is the place to be - get there early.
Don't do it!!!!
Good ship with poor entertainment.
Get to the shows early or very hard to get a seat
Don't buy the drink plan unless you plan on drinking at least 7 or 8 drinks per day, every day.
Spend time on Deck 10 -- not crowded, and the views are splendid.
If you are going to Alaska, get a balcony or oceanview room. The scenery is unbelieveable.
You don't have to worry about a thing! They transfer you from place to place and have all your steps planned out when you get to each destination in your Welcome Packet including what time you have to be where for even your excursions. Your luggage is always waiting for you in your room when you arrive and is picked up at your door. We had a terrific experience with Holland America! We have sailed on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Disney. We say they are the one of the best!
Not to big. Just right size and highly recommend the captain
Tour the facilities right away. The spa only sold 40 weekly passes. I would recommend it to anyone.
Take warm clothes, talk to fellow passengers, amazing people Enjoy being spoiled
Get the spa package. It is well worth it.
Bring a good pair of binoculars because if there are wildlife sightings they will often be very far away and you will need decent magnification if you want to see clearly.
We chose open seating for our dining experience. It is very casual, from people in bath robes (not appropriate in our opinion, but to give you an idea of what was worn) and swimwear to dress clothes. If you want a more elegant experience, choose set dining times with formal nights.
