Well your question seems to have 2 answers and than all the research you get to do you can decide. Through my dealings I believe that Holland has the best deal for the buck. But for the best product ..I would say not the best product. It's definately worth it but the best product my opinion take it a notch higher on Radission or Regent Seven Seas. Now there is top knotch. And than this is when the pocket book question goes out the door. You know the saying , you get what you pay for. But in all fairness, someone who wants to have a nice time and not over due it in costs, Holland would be really good. I never been on a world cruise but I have booked a few of them.
