Review summary

Perfect cruise for seniors, middle age, possibly grown ups, but not necessarily for teenagers, juniors and kids. Impeccable service by ship's crew and staff. Great food selection and quality. Efficient, functional, beautiful ship's interior design, layout, color, and appurtenances. Dull, unappealing, very poor exterior paint (black?) selection. Truthfully, it looks more like a cargo ship than a cruise ship. If you're receptive, value your guest's feedback and serious about improving the ship's exterior appearance, please... please... I beg you to change the color black to something other than black.

Old, antiquated TV set. Very poor TV reception. Can be improved if the ship's company so desire.

Ship tip

Take and enjoy the cruise. Ignore the depressing black exterior paint. That's for the Holland America Line's company to deliberate and decide upon.
