Well Holland America is geared more towards older people, so you might not like that. A lot of people do say that the food is not as good on holland america.[/quote]
This is how misinformation starts. Granted HAL does tend to get a lot of older folks (or on one cruise on HAL it was remarked that there were senior citizens and their parents cruising
). However, I have been on two HAL cruises, the food on the Zaandam, on that particular cruise, was awful. I did read much better reviews after that. On the Maasdam, on that particular cruise, the food was good.
I think ship to ship, sailing to sailing, there can be differences.
I have cruised NCL and HAL (our family prefers NCL by far) and I am looking forward to an upcoming Carnival cruise in January.
I like Michelle1959's attitude - try them all!
