Holland America Line

Took the HAL Ryndam in 2002 and again this October. What a difference!!! The improvements on this ship were super including the staterooms, Lido, deck furnishings, etc.  Many activities on this cruise, which keeps one active. This was the most friendly crew we have had from the captain on down. Entertainment was varied and excellent. Food for the most part was good to excellent. Being a small ship, it was easy to get around. One shore tour I would like to mention: Copper Canyon. It was a long day and an expensive one. Nice to see, but wouldn't go back. The crew made it easy for our 5:30AM departure and welcomed us back at 10:30 that evening. All in all, I would recommend this ship to those who like going on a smaller vessel. Only problems were the toilet and hot water, which were fixed in short order.
