Everything ran smoothly, but wasn't outstanding to recommend. Not enough to do during sea days. I wish there were more activities to do on sea days. Even quiet areas were hard to find because those spaces were being used. Charging for bingo and movies and anything else to do is tacky. Other options were to buy tanzanite?? Holland America cruises have so many FREE activities that there isn't enough time to do them all. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Always clean.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Little do to on sea days. Movies should not be charged.
Not enough to do during the days. The night time shows were fine.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
the specialty restaurants and the sit down dinners were great. The buffets were ok.


Restos fairly priced. Not enough to do on sea days. The activities that were available consisted of attending seminars for buying items. Movies should be free. Not enough quiet spaces. Spa prices outrageous. Shining part is the staff, best part of the trip.
