With our service being as wonderful as it was, it made the entire cruise "special".  Our stateroom and balcony along with location was most enjoyable.  Our one request of Holland America is that they band smoking from the balconies.  Our 3 staterooms endured "used smoke" from ahead of us which was most distasteful since no one in our family smokes or ever has smokes.  This is enough for us to consider a cruise line that does not allow smoking on the balcony in the future.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room not always consistent. Had to send a couple items back to be reheated. A little disappointed in food quality. Lido was good but somewhat a free for all with people cutting in on lines and people not sure where lines started or ended. The Dive In was excellent!

Cabin was excellent and made for an enjoyable time. Our service was top notch as well.

Ship Tip

Side elevators a huge plus. We think a lot of people thought they were just part of the ship. We loved them.
