Are you looking to book a Holland America Line cruise but want to know the age of the ship, its itinerary, and how many people it can hold? You’ve come to the right place.
I’m a huge cruise fan, but that doesn’t mean I will book just any itinerary. Knowing what the ship has to offer, especially how new or old it is always plays a major role in how I book a cruise.
