The Holland America Cruise Experience: White glove service, formal tea and dining to the gentle sounds of a string ensemble or piano are as much a part of the Holland America experience today as they were a century ago. These ships attract people who love low-key, refined service that is nearly gone from cruising today. Holland America Cruise Line's experienced Indonesian and Filipino crew is the company's largest asset, attracting a large number of repeaters who love the warm, gracious service they deliver. Larger cabins and suites are another gracious touch.
As part of the premium line'ss $225 million dollar "Signature of Excellence" initiative, Holland America has introduced early boarding it s fleet. Passengers may board from 11:30am to enjoy the Welcome Above Lido buffet, tour the ship and make spa appointments and arrange shore excursions until cabins are ready - usually around 1:00pm. Carry-on luggage and coats can be checked with ship staff.
