Embarkation went fine .
The ship was clean and fresh.
Our cabin was comfortable.
Our cabin attendants were great. They got you anything you wanted or needed.
We opted for anytime dining and were usually seared within 15 minutes.
The food was very good with a good selection. If you don’t want to try anything there is always the classic menu available with steak, chicken or fish. all were very good.
Service in the Dining room was excellent.
The entertainment and activities were NOT very good. The evening shows were mostly just okay.
The activities were almost nonexistent. Holland America has decided to go with “enrichment programs” and seminars instead of giving their guests anything fun to do.
The Cruise Director was invisible. Never saw her unless she was introducing the show. Never interacted with the guests.
The crowd was much older on this Cruise. Lots of walkers, scooters, and wheelchairs.
It felt like a floating nursing home.
The ports were mostly depressed areas with little to see, with the exception of Puerto Vallerta.
The crossing of the Panama Canal was a highlight.
Clean and comfortable
