Not As Robust As Holland America Cruises

Sail Date: September 11, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The itinerary was pretty good as the return trip had different ports except for Halifax.  The ship was very clean and the food excellent but so many people that leaving and returning from the ports was laborious. However, as HAL devotees, we greatly missed the daily newspapers, the port talks that happen without shopping the prime interest, the wonderful afternoon tea complete with; scones, clotted cream, lovely sammys, and waiters with white gloves, the free computer classes, fresh fruit in the room daily and the 2 for 1 happy hour specials.  There was no conditioner next to the shampoo.  We like the smaller ships although I must say the large ship was smoother and I did not get sea sick.

Be prepared for crowds everywhere and no place to have a quiet conversation with friends. Also, bring your own books as the library was not manned often and the book selections was awful.
