This cruise was clearly for the older crowd (over 60).
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
I found many items to be of such poor quality, I would send it back, and ask for something else.

The magic act and the ventriliquest (sp) was wonderful. The singing and dancing acts were quite boring. (I saw several people leave during the acts).
Service and Staff
1 out of 5
Again, as compared to the Disney Cruise Ship, the Holland America have not a clue as to what service means. I was pushing my mother in a wheel chair trying to get food for her in the Lido Dining area. Not a single person offered to find us a table, carry our food, and they didn't have any trays, thus making it that much harder for me.

The ship was too big for me. The Lido Dining Area (buffet) was very poorly laid out (one line for this, one line for that). By the time you got all your food, your food was cold.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
I would have given a higher score if not for the chairs and sofas in the room. They were so well used, that they needed replacing.
