Review summary

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.
