Have been on numerous Celebrity cruises all sizes and the same with Holland with 110 days Going all the way back to the old Niew Amsterdam.Both lines have their attributes and the following is only an opinion as I would choose either in a heartbeat.Celebrity:CHAMPAGNE upon boarding and escort to your room;cold towels at pool side and sorbet seved also;best pastries and desserts and a much better alternative restaurant with the Olympic on the Millinnium the top of my list.Entertainment in general somewhat better.Holland:Somewhat better service due to the two major nationalities of the waiters and cabin stewards;More friendly in general.Hot appetizers in all bars before dinner;chocolates in bar after dinner to die for;All in all I would pick Celebrity as ther appears to be some life after dinner where as on Holland most are in bed before 11;00 pm.For those who have not been on Princess lately try the caribbean princess for a cruise that offers much better entertainment with bert Stratton the number one entertainer on all cruise ships packing them in every nite in the piano bar.Also anytime dining a real plus and would suspect this will be the norm on all cruise lines shortly.
