Do not take holland America cruise. The stops are crappy, the cruise line is out for your money.they charge extra for almost everything. I will never cruise on HAL. Again.

Review summary

This cruise is all about the money. Our first 2 cerise's were excellent. Since then it has been all down hill. I wish I picked a different cruise line. From now on I will stick with Viking cruises. They treat you with respect, not after your money.
