Our current seven-day Holland America Mexican Riviera cruise is unlike any of the 34 we’ve experienced. Unlike most other voyages we’ve taken, the itinerary wasn’t part of our equation. The destination we cared about was the ship itself.
Our cruise, which ends tomorrow, was a seven-day destination dining adventure with a toe-tapping rock and blues soundtrack. Add a wine tasting, entertaining, cooking demonstration, chef-helmed celebration, and polished, friendly service throughout, and we disembark sated and satisfied.
We took the same cruise in January and we’re blown away by Holland’s culinary and entertainment offerings. All exceeded our expectations and were significantly better than our meals and entertainment aboard a top-tiered “luxury” cruise line we sampled recently.
When we booked this cruise, we wondered if the ship could repeat its stellar performance. Happily, it did!
