good time despite the weather

     The outfitting of the ship was very comfortable, with a crew that saw to your every need.  The food on this cruise was wonderful, from the buffet to the Vista Dining Room to the Pinnacle Grill.  Although there is an additional charge for the Pinnacle Grill, it is worth every penny!  The food and service were impeccable. 


     There was plenty to do on the ship, from cards, internet, library, and trivia.  I have sailed 2 other lines, but I will attempt to book any future cruises on Holland America.


     Although the weather did not cooperate with us at all, cold, rainy, and cloudy, the cruise itself went smoothly most of the time.  Unfortunately when you have from 47 to 57 knot winds hitting you it was a little rocky.  This too passed and a good time was had by all.



Cabin / Stateroom
Stewart was excellent, meeting our every need and requests. Cabin was clean, very spacious. We never felt crowed, even with 3 of us in the cabin.

we were unable to go on our planned excursion, carriage ride around the city, as the ship hit 57knot winds and we were 3 hours late. All excursions were cancelled.


go to the Pinnacle Grill for dinner. You wont regret it at all.
