the cruise worked for us with my husband's physical limitations. Great room and placement on the ship and near elevators. Staff extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. They made the cruise ..special!

Cruise line was very comfortable and the service impeccable unfortunately due to adverse weather conditions we were unable to visit the Normandy ports but were compensated adequately for the disappointment....the food was not quite up to standard unfort.

Very enjoyable...it was made so by the good service of all members of the crew. It did cater to an older clientele.

Very Happy HAL First Timer

Apr 22nd, 2019

Embarkation/debarkation fast n easy; vista suite very nice; bars were great with no long waits; MDR very good and on point; Pizza bar best on boat so far; Lido buffet quite good, no trouble finding seats; no chair hogging on deck 8 aft pool area; Canaletto mediocre; Pinnacle Grill was spectacular food and service; great room stewards; not alot for kids to do but that's great so there isn't many kids. Great boat for relaxing and reconnecting with significant other. WONDERFUL VACATION OVERALL!!!

Very relaxing cruise

Apr 16th, 2019

I have sailed on over 100 cruises and this was Holland America's last roundtrip sailing from Tampa so I decided to give it one more try. I am glad I did as it was very relaxing and smooth sailing. Food was way above average. Hardly any kids on board but many older people. The onboard stores were pitiful as there was nothing to buy except expensive jewelry, liquor or HAL cruise clothes. They did have "happy hour' every night where you could buy your second alcoholic drink for $2. I hope HAL comes back to Tampa again.

Wonderful

Apr 14th, 2019

Having only cruised 3 times this was the best cruise we took. We met many fun loving people on the ship at the Crows Nest, shared dining table with others during dinner and met folks on the excursions. This is a mid-size ship 1400 guests so it never seemed crowded. We read that only "old" people cruise on HAL. This was not true on this cruise although it was during spring break. We met families and older people but also teenagers. This was not a party ship like some on Carnival can be. Not being derogratory about Carnival as we have had fun crusies with them. HAL felt like a step above although not as stimulating. Did not like the port of Costa Maya and next time would take a tour of Roatan Island. Overall an excellent cruise.

I have told at least 40 people already about our trip on the cruise ????. I am guessing that they got the picture and want to try it.
