Review summary

After seven months of winter in the north west sunshine is really needed, and we got plenty of that on our cruise from Tampa, through the Canal and up the west coast all the way back to Seattle. From embarkation to disembarkation Holland America had everything well ordered with excellent, non-intrusive service every step of the way. The ship was beautifully clean and well maintained, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. All in all, a great trip. We especially appreciated the general lack of noisiness and the very tasteful background music around the ship, as well as the various onboard entertainments.
