We planed this cruise year ago. We wanted spend time all holiday in the cruise ship. Ship were very old. Nothing fancy, elegant in the reception area. There is no lobby. Usually I take a lot of pictures, but was not this time. Not so many people are dress up for the gala night. Quality of food was better than Princess. They make fresh pancake or serve you salad, but getting food in buffe there is long line everyday. I do not believe it. Getting omulets takes 10 Minuit, getting Salad 7 minuit everyday. I could not do this ever day for 28 days. They have small swimming poor that was everyday occupied by kids. Price of tour seemed to be expensive to me, because it's cost you only 3 hour tour over $ 100. There are some complimentary Shuttle by Holland America in some city, but they do not tell you in advance.
Only thing I miss a lot is dinning staff. They are working very hard, very friendly and nice. Do I take another cruise with Holland America?
Even thought I liked dinning, I probably not. Proses to getting bord, I had bad customer service, too.
