This was our first Holland America cruise after cruises with a number of other cruise lines. We loved it and intend to do Holland America again. It is a more refined and understated experience than you get on some other cruise lines but we liked that. The food and wine service was very good. We ended up taking almost all our meals in the main dining rooms and it was consistently good. The special holiday meals were well thought out. Wine and drink service was good and not overpriced. Our cabin, which was a simple window cabin, was actually large and comfortable. Room steward service was truly excellent. The choice of ports was excellent on this cruise taking us to places not typically seen. Being on Ryndam on Christmas Eve was a wonderful experience with a great concert by the crew member choirs and entertainers. Overall, it was great to be on Ryndam for the holiday season.
