Review summary

As expected a great cruise from Holland america , travelled with my wife and three daughters who had a great time . The ship is a little tired and the cabins are showing their age , but comfortable with great beds . The staff as usual were very hardworking , found there was little waiting time whilst getting lunch or breakfast in the Lido deck . The food was of a good quality , with nice variety . My fellow cruiser s were by and large of the older age range , but pleasant. There was little sunbed hogging or line jumping. Holland america is my favourite cruise line and we sail with them whenever possible . Unfortunately due to them not sailing out of UK ports , I have prior to this cruise travelled mostly with Celebrity , who a great , but lack the effortless feeling of friendliness and calm that every HAL cruise I've been on seem to have .
