Great time with family by elsalopezc

Had better cruises before. Didn’t like this one. They served the same foods several times. They need more food variety.

Older ship, geared more towards the older generation by mrssellis13

Our ship experience fell flat from the expectations we originally had for them. We paid more for this cruise as we thought it would be more "luxury" but were disappointed with the lack of activities and entertainment on board. It seemed like the entertainment ended around 9 pm every night, and they didn't provide anything more after. There was no comedy club, no dancing, nothing open late night. The food provided was definitely the better of the ships we've been on, but we had a poor experience with the customer service we were provided by the dining room. We had a bad instance with one of the waiters, Nova, and this tainted our overall experience. It was nice to get away, but we will not be using Holland again for our travels.

^Too many unsupervised kids by tessfl

Every thing was good except the fact that there were over 200 kids. The ones that were not supervised were in the pool area. They totally took over the pool and Jacuzzi. Loud and unsupervised. We left pool area and found kids sitting on the ping pong table and they were throwing French fries at each other. They really needed someone to supervise what was going on in that area. Will watch the next time we take a vacation and make sure it is not during a vacation week for kids.

Old ship but great staff by lah022770

Verified Review

Although my husband and I had a wonderful time, I am not sure I would sail with Holland America again and if I do I would make sure that is on one of their larger vessels. The staff was wonderful, but this cruise line seems to cater to an older wealthier group of people.

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.
