The ship seemed a bit old but everything was clean. The staterooms were very spacious and comfortable. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The state room crew did a great job. The cruise diredtor Anthony was superb. The lectures about the ports of call were very informative. The food was very good and we had no problem with seating for dinner.
The Captain, Tim Johnson, was very professional but friendly. The interviews with him and other staff were delightful. Again, thanks to the cruise director who conducted them. I certainly would go on another Holland America cruise.

Pros: going through the Panama Canal

Cons: too many stops in Mexico Acupulco
