This cruise experience was the best by far.  We really enjoyed the smaller ship and HOlland America went above and beyond.  The service was truly outstanding, food exceptional, entertainment top notch (except for the singers) and the itinerary excellent.  Every crew member greeted us no matter where we were on the ship, with a genuine smile and verbal greeting.  We were entertained by an outstanding violinist and his pianist wife in the lounges, excellent blues band and piano man in the Piano Bar nightly....I could go on and on.  The menu selections in the dining area were unique, delicious and presented well.  Cabin stewards attentive without hovering and kept our cabin clean and supplied with fresh towels.  We had to cancel our Costa Rica port because of rough seas but Holland America took us to Grand Cayman and it was lovely.  I talked with a couple from the Princess cruise line in Grand Cayman and they also had to cancel Costa Rica but they ended up at sea an extra day.  They were hoping to have 2 days in Grand Cayman but did not get it.  We felt extra special that HA gave us a replacement port and not just stay at sea to use up time.  Looking forward to our Alaskan cruise with HA in July!!!!

Honestly, every group was great except the singers.....sorry to say that but true....off key...songs just didn't seem like they were suited for some of the voices. Loved the dancers and costumes.
