Hi, We are thinking about booking this cruise this week and I would like to know if anyone has been on this cruise and how they liked it. How was the ship, etc?
We have been on 7 cruises before on NCL and RCCL, we have never cruised Holland line before.
Can anyone tell us the differences. Is Holland really formal? We are casual people. With the price of extra luggage we prefer work casual wear.Does this ship have the anytime seating for dinner? Any information would be greatly appreciated and helpful.

I was on a 10 day Holland America cruise last year and I didn't find it to be any more or less formal than Princess, which is my usual cruise line. And it wasn't a more elderly crowd, which I had been led to believe. On formal nights there were some tuxedos and long gowns; but mostly suits or jackets and ties for the men and skirts and fancy tops for the ladies.

The upper level of the dining room was devoted to "As You Wish" (anytime) dining.
