Holland America slipping a little bit.
Zuiderdam Cruise Review to Caribbean

In general, I would say Holland America is slipping a little bit. Their cruise ships are aging and the quality of the overall decor reflects it. The food was not quite up to prior standards and we missed some of our favorite events including Chocolate Desert Night and Champagne Night. The Piano Bar was still excellent, but the shows (except for the comedians) were below par. The excursions were well organized, but the destinations were not too exciting. The Pinnacle Grill was excellent. Finally, the cruise line needs to put an end to the saving of deck chairs in the pool areas. They should require that all deck chairs be occupied within 15 minutes or made available for other passengers who ARE present.

Piano Bar was outstanding, but arrive early if you want a seat. Pinnacle Grill was excellent, but you need to reserve early for best seating times.
