Review summary

we booked last minute (2 weeks prior to sailing) Had a great time. we drove to montreal-apx 625 miles from Wooster Ohio. We will cruise Holland America again. We liked the size of ship-like our 1st cruise in 1991. Been on a couple of mega ships-4000 pass.- we perfer the 1500 pass. size.
