We like sailing with Holland America for a number of reasons. This cruise line is not for everyone. It is definitely more reserved and not a party ship. This is the fourth Holland ship we have sailed and we enjoyed the Westerdam. Not too big and not to small. It did seem we felt more motion on this ship, than others. We thought the food excellent and the service very good. For the life of me I do not understand how people complain. The staff is awesome and help make everyday a pleasure. We also like that Holland has a priest on board and you can attend Mass daily, if you so choose. We had a relaxed vacation and liked fewer ports. Cruising is all about personal preference so know ahead what you are seeking for your cruise experience and you will be happy.
