A smaller, older ship but still very well maintained, sadly this ship is to be sold on next year to P&O Australia and unfortunately replaced with a larger ship, we seem to be loosing the original concept of cruising, not everyone wants big and loud! Anytime dining onboard is a farce, it caused huge chaos when people turned up to dinner with no tables available for the rest of the evening, giving you no choice but to eat in the buffet restaurant, not good. We had great expectations from Holland America, our travel advisor assured us they were a step up from Princess and Celebrity, our first experience with them left us feeling that this is not the case, however we would book a Holland America cruise again in the hope that they could prove our travel advisor right. The Norwegian fjords cruise is definitely one not to be missed, absolutely awesome.
