Room Type: Balcony

I would recommend Holland America to anyone...it is a wonderful cruise line and friendly staff. I would recommend getting the premium drink package as soon as you get on the ship, this will save you money if you are a drinker.($49/day=15 drinks a day...)One could combine this with another. Make sure to go to all the shows...they are amazing. Get up early to watch the sunrise at least one of the days. You can take a taxi at any of the destinations and get an amazing tour just by listening to the driver...we saved money doing this instead of an excursion in San Juan.  If you do plan to book excursions...book them as soon as you look them all over on the first day...you can do this with the easy kiosk on 2nd floor.  If you dont go...you can get a refund.  Have fun!!!

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
go to the Oriental beach...pay the 10$ to get a chair and drink and internet and shower...but if you walk to the right,.. you will reach the nude beach...beware....
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)


2 pools and 2 hot tubs...not so hot but comfortable. Use the premium drink package..get it AS SOON as you get on the ship...this will save you money in the end
