We generally prefer smaller ships as they are more personable and easier to get in an out of. In this case another distinct advantage was being able to dock at Hamilton, the center of town. Holland of America was the only ship small enough to be able to dock there. The food at the dinnning room was good but service was a little slow sometimes. The food at the Lido was very similar to other cruise buffet food (pretty average) but we appreciated all the efforts made to keep the place clean and sanitary. We rarely saw piled up dirty dishes or food messes that you typically see in other cruise ships. We also loved the library section of this ship. They had a great collection of books and very comfortable chairs. That was the general meeting place for my husband, son and I on the boat and we spent many enjoyable hours there as well as meeting other like minded passangers. A great place to be on the \"at sea\" days! Overall, our experience was very favorable.
