We found it significantly more challenging to eat gluten-free than it had been on Holland America Koningsdam.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
There was inadequate quiet, lounging space for such a crowded ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Our three-person cabin did NOT have adequate storage for three adult women. There was not a single drawer, only two racks for towels, a closet that was too deep to be functional for easily accessing our stuff, etc.

Ship tip

If you have special dietary requirements, research it beforehand! Some staff are not very educated on the matter.

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden Did not visit port

Quite disappointingly, our trip to this port was cancelled the morning of due to bad weather. Other smaller ships were able to dock.
