What do we say about Holland America Line?
If you are looking for great food and excellent service, Holland America is the cruise line for you. Holland America caters to a more sophisticated crowd and you might not find much action around the ship after 9 pm. There is plenty to do for the younger generations but the older crowd tends to be more entertained. If you are a fan of Dancing With the Stars, you will enjoy their Dancing At Sea program!
