Not the best by zap823

Ship is very dated. AC did not work well. Not much entertainment. Bars were closed by 9:00 every night. Nothing going on on the pool deck. Food was phenomenal and service was awesome. We usually cruise NCL so we are used to everything being open at night and having entertainment on the pool deck. This ship is definitely lacking. Being in Hamilton for three full days was awesome!!

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.

I am sad that this is the end of an era! Holland America will no longer cruise to Bermuda. Very sad! This was the best itinerary for Betmuda. Docking in Hamilton is awesome! Now the only thing left is mega ships at the Dockyard! Time to stay home!

First time cruise by loish173873900

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was my first cruise and it exceeded my expectations. The service was excellent and genuine. The staff was very hard working and accommodating. The food was so delicious and wide variety as well. The chefs really put a lot of effort into it. From breakfast to dinner, there was a wide range to choose from. I felt like I was fine dining every night. There were also hand sanitizers available at every dining entrance. The staff were continuously wiping down the handrails of the ship and frequently cleaning our stateroom (usually twice daily). Entertainment, gym access and library were wonderful for us as well. I had no complaints at all. I plan to travel with Holland America in the future.

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.
