The ship was beautiful and the food was fantastic. The ports were well chosen and the staff were friendly and professional. I have cruised only  5 other cruse lines, but this is my first time on Holland America. It will not be my last!

Ship tip

Look for Internet onshore. The ship's wifi was expensive. On this particular cruise we were able to use accessible public transportation for excursions- much cheaper, just as interesting and provided a bit of adventure.
