Review summary

Cruise was not up to par.  We have traveled with Holland America 5 times previously.  We have always had a good time.  This time our cabin was under the galley and we had non-stop noise.  Sometimes it was 18 hours a day and sometimes it was almost 24 hours.  Try sleeping with banging, wheels sliding across the floor, noise and more noise.  Ship did not have lecturers like they normally do and it just wasn't up to par.

This cabin will always be horrible. It will always be noisy. Whoever gets this cabin after us will have the same trouble. This was an "upgrade" from an inside cabin. It was not a good trip.

Ship tip

Make sure you get a quiet room if you want to sleep well.
