Review summary

Fly to Hawaii. That’s what I would recommend. Five days at sea is too many on a ship with minimal activity.

Holland America’s staff is always top notch.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Everything was clean. That’s not a problem. But the ship’s design doesn’t work with its programs. For example, they had to. Ring in many folding chairs for viewers of the piano entertainment. The bar isn’t large enough. Also the Crow’s Nest has been turned into a coffee shop. What a waste of space! They need a DJ and a dance floor up there.

Ship tip

Five days at sea is too much. If you’re visiting Hawaii, fly over there and cruise around the islands.
