overall good to fair; great staff by GailandJohn

Even though my comments as I reread them are pretty negative it was a good cruise. We gambled every night (and lost every night:-) but the dealers and pit bosses and the manager, Corina were all very pleasant- It is a small casino but if there was not a table open (blackjack) they would open one for us. Minimum smoking in the casino - by certain slot machines only. Food in the Pinnacle was cold at breaKfast but, again staff very pleasant. Dinner in the Pinnacle (filet) was very good. Our room stewards, Romy and Agung were EXCELLENT and our suite was kept immaculate. Our concierge, Mary, was very helpful in many ways (We never know how much to tip) And, Fatima, who we did not see that often was also very nice. Our waiters at night Jimmy and Moises were also very good even though they had too many people to care for. And even though we don't drink we met Micky, the wine steward, who would come over and talk to us each night. Again, a very pleasant staff with the one exception that I mentioned - Albert, the Executive Housekeeper)

This cruise was very enjoyable. The food was beyond our expectations and the crew was friendly and attended to every request. The ports of call were very interesting and the tour guides were very knowledgeable.

Not A Great Ship by DiviAruba

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Food running out at buffets Running out of alcohol (Heineken for one) Lack of knowing how many drinks we had throughout the day with the drink plan - had to go to desk to find out Poor quality food Lack of food after 8:00 at the buffet Pizza closing at 8 pm. Pizza was bad, but it was better than nothing. Dive-In closing at 5 p.m. Lack of staff to wait on people by the pool Lack of staff to pick up dirty tables and re-set Boat is old and shows it. The ship set-up is odd, have to walk through buffet to get to the pool.

Sail on other Holland America ships until this one is renovated.

Make sure you have a few good books and a deck of cards. The library is well stocked with both if you leave yours at home. There is very little organized activities.
