Our toilet did not work on 2 occasions (once for 6 hours). We had to go to another deck to use the toilet. there were no big production shows. The furniture in our room &in common areas was well worn. We had to leave our veranda door open and the heat &AC did not work well. The port in Santo Tom as de Castilla is just an industrial port. We have been on 6 other cruises with Holland America and they were great. The Ryndam is not up to the standards we had on other Holland America ships.
