First Cruise Experience

Sail Date: June 22, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise, and it was wonderful. We went with two other couples who are close friends. The entertainment on the ship was great; the restaurants were fine, the attention from the crew was outstanding, and we have nothing negative to say.

We would recommend this ship and Holland America line and look forward to cruising with them again.
