If Brian and Jackie are still at BILLBOARD ONBOARD do not miss their show! They are literally the best duo we have heard on all of our cruises!

if you want to be confortable get cabins that are big, if they have two bedrooms and a living room got for it.. You'll be more comfortable.. Small rooms for people with handicaps are not worth going.

Don’t! It’s a very boring ship I’m guessing due to a poor cruise director? I hope the rest of Holland Line isn’t this bad.

Don't expect a huge variety in activities or menu.

Take advantage of the main dining room meals, they are outstanding! If you would like to see more foods offered in the evenings (after 8:30pm), please let Holland America know this! Most people we talked to on our cruise were a bit upset that they did not have snacks or something to eat in the evening hours).

Rent a Cabana for your cruise- they pamper you with champagne 🍾 Chocolate covered strawberries 🍓 and will get you anything you like - our cabana boys were so amazing and on top of anything we needed.. plus you stay out of the masses fighting for deck chairs

Overall I think this is a cruise for older adults except that in exchange for less to do, I want better food and better entertainment. I cannot recommend this cruise. We were a group of high school, college age, 40s, 50s and 70s. Only the one set of parents in 40s who never cruised before would recommend. We did have fun but I believe another ship would have been better suited for our group and could have offered more activities, less upwelling and better food.
