The ship was cold in all public area. Cabin staff exceptionally good. Breakfast food in the restaurant was abysmal but the good in the Lido was fine. The shows were very poor with a rock violinist on 2 nights, conjourer on 2 nights and the musical shows were terrible with the female singers “screeching”. The cost of tours exorbitant and poor value. Everything including the buffet drinks station closed at 11 p.m. I believe there was a disco dance starting at 11.30.
I did enjoy most of the ports of call but one or two were disappointing as there was nothing much to see. The local people we met were extremely friendly and wished to talk in English.
Overall I enjoyed the cruise but would not cruise Holland America Line again unless it offered a bargain.
