Great ship, a little too big for my taste. But everything was excellent: food, crew, captain. Holland america line is the best.

Do not book a cruise early with Holland America. I thought I had gotten a good price for this 28 day cruise and booked it 10 months prior to sailing date. I was requested to pay in full and informed it was non refundable. I subsequently saw prices drop $450. per person or $900. for the cabin. I notified my travel agent and subsequently informed that Holland America would neither match the reduced rate or provide any concessions- no shipboard credit; nothing toward gratuities; no wine or dinners in gourmet restaurants; no excursions- absolutely not one cent. I have taken 44 previous cruises on various cruise lines, and never treated so despicably unfair. I met another woman on board who booked 6 weeks before the sailing and had a higher class suite than I had for 1/2 of what I paid. They had my money for 10 months and would not refund a cent. .

Enjoy the buffet. It was one of the highlights. Don’t count on internet working. It was the worst we’ve ever encountered on a cruise.

Get a suite or balcony, don’t waste the chance for great sightseeing or just to sit outside and read, listen or watch.
