Well first of all great trip. Ship in places needs attention, I hear the ship is going in for refit after this trip. Food very good. The staff go the extra mile to make sure every thing is ok no thing is too much trouble . Felt the ship a very dress down compared to other ships . The resturant very good. The pinnacles resturant good but not a big menu, but food excellent . Shopping on board poor unless you need a new watch. Drinks are expensive. As tours are we did quite a few over ten, but where possible shared a taxi which brought the cost down. Entertainment was poor not the showS that one expects, though the in house dancers where excellent better than some of the entertainers that are brought on board ..on the day we disembarked as our flight was early we took our own cases which was a hassle ,would have thought Holland America Could have let couple stewards to help ..

We were updated from an inside stateroom to a Deck Stateroom which really made a difference to the exercise we did avoiding weight gain and enjoying the fresh air. Easy access was great. The seas were calm which made for a beautiful cruise. The side trips were very interesting. Overall very high marks for Holland America, once again! Thank you.
