Always had the grill for hotdogs/hamburgers to fall back on.
The passengers are generally old and sedate. This is a cruise line for more geriatric cruises.
Lower promenade deck is fun for outdoor walkabout. Sheltered somewhat from elements. We walked several mornings.
The ice cream is excellent.
Treat yourselves for Le Cirque
BB King Blues Band was a fantastic addition - great, authentic music in the Crow's Nest every night.
Hamburgers from poolside grill were good.
Hamburgers aren't that great on the ship but the other food was wonderful. The excursions are very expensive so we only booked the boat excursion in Stavanger. You can save some money purchasing the train ride in Flam on your own when you arrive.
Make a reservation for the Pinnacle Grill restaurant as soon as you get on board as this restaurant gets booked quickly and is their best restaurant. There is a fee but it is well worth it. Same thing with their Italian restaurant, the Canaletto.
The ship was kept extremely clean...they were constantly cleaning thru out the day!
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.
Lido was great fro breakfast and lunch.
If you like peace and quiet , great service and relaxing atmosphere, this is a great ship. I only wish the entertainment was better suited for a mature audience as well as the musical taste
Don't expect a busy ship with lots of things to do. If you are looking for a relaxing cruise with excellent service and good food you won't be disappointed. One good thing about Holland is they still offer complimentary room service. We enjoyed a full relaxing breakfast in our cabin each morning. If you don't see what you want on the room service menu write in what you want and they will do their best to provide it.
Do not go on Rotterdam.
Do not sail on Rotterdam. Choose another boat. This one came out of dry dock a few weeks earlier and is not in usable shape.
Don’t expect a lot of activity, there are things to do but definitely not a lively place
Relax and have a great time. Don't sweat the small things. The food and service is still great!
Unless it undergoes months of rehab, I would not recommend it to anyone
You can look forward to being pampered everyday...enjoy!
