Review summary

Had a great time. Thirst was our first Holland America cruise. Was very impressed! Will definitely cruise with them again! The overall itinerary was great. Could have skipped Sydney, Nova Scotia. Loved everything else. We met some wonderful people from all over. Sometimes that is the best part.
