Sail Date: December 01, 2011 Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Large Group Reviewed: 5 years ago
Impressed by the cleanliness of the ship, as well as the friendliness and variety of ethnicity of the staff. I liked where my room was, clean, quiet, and roomy & bright hallway.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
food could be better. the same food served over and over, especially the dessert. more vegetarians should be offered, and not just salad and cheese. holland america was able to offer a variety of food and dessert. love their food. with this cruise, didn't look forward to food. buffet was bad too.

looks like planning on this area needs to be improved. more activities need to be offered and scheduled at times where people are not on excursions. some were even cancelled. this area needs to be reviewed and improved. boring programs.

like the layout and cleanliness. like how there were lots of chairs and there were wind-blockers. can get the view from outside and not be affected by the cold wind.
