  1. I have only sailed with Holland America Line once for my second time sailing. We sailed on HAL's ms Volendam. Of course the service was first class. But I really enjoyed dancing in the Crow's Nest on level 9 with almost 360 views! The floor is big enough for ballroom but the nights i danced it was hot, hot Latin rhythms.
