Review Summary

good service, good ship great experiences-Holland America gives you great value for money-its the best intersection point of price and value- I've been on Crystal, Seabourn etc and you pay 3x as much for only 10-15percent more luxury- do you really like or need caviar that much?

Only critical advice :book your own shore excursions.. HAL charges too much (most lines do) for what you get

we were actually upgraded to 2626 full ocean view- however, this trip would have been better in an INTERIOR cabin! Why? Crossing the atlantic to the very north in the summer there was little to no darkness and black out curtains are inadequate too much light for proper sleep

Ship Tip

Pinnacle Grille was top notch and worth it
