3 out of 5

Our first Holland America experience

Sail Date: January 06, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Our embarkation experience was great..we practically walked right onto the ship( compared to previous experiences). I liked the overall decor but when we opened our cabin door , we were disappointed. We booked a room for 3 adults and found out that the 3 rd person had to open a small couch which when opened took all of the floor space...no one could go to the bathroom while the couch was open unless they walked across that bed!!! Our 3rd person slept all week on a 48" + /- wide couch curled up. We tried to upgrade but we were told there were no more rooms available. The food in both the Lido restaurant and the dining room was very good but our waiter was very slow and we waited a long time between courses. We were the first table seated in the dining room at dinner and the last table finished. We liked the entertainment and the main shows were amongst the best we've seen in our 13+ cruises to date.

Pros: Ships decor, the food, the ports and the casino

Cons: Our cabin and the dining room service

Tortola, British Virgin Islands
A tour of the island was a good way to spend an afternoon.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
The beach was great. The tram driver drove us aroung the island and we saw the stingrays and the horses.
Don't Miss: The stingrays and the beach.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
The new shopping area for the new dock when construction is complete will be great. It was not open as yet. The main shopping area requires taking a cab or tram now and downtown is crowded.
Don't Miss: The Tram ride up the hill.
Grand Turk Island
The MC at Margaritaville was very entertaining.
Don't Miss: Enjoying a beverage at Margaritaville
