7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 16, 2014
Ship: Ryndam
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Poor weather cannot be controlled. However, cold food and slow service are not up to the standards of previous sailings on Holland America.  The food in the Pinnacle was disappointing for the upgraded price, i.e., steak was tough and a surcharge of $20 for King Crab (added to the $29 pp. initial meal charge).  In addition, the Pinnacle meal experience was close to two-and-a-half hours from appetizer to dessert.
