Holland America "VIEW&VERANDAH" - Drinks, Upgrades, Excursions & More

Holland America View and Verandah Event

Holland America is the line to sail if you enjoy live music, and their VIEW&VERANDAH promotion represents some real savings opportunities.  From blues to rock-and-roll to classical, they've put such a big focus on musical talent the last few years that on our cruises we found it transformed their brand experience.  Holland America offers dining and service that is a big step up from many lines, and while they have a quieter onboard feel by day, we've found the evenings to have loads of entertainment options.  For us, in addition to the live music offerings, we found the Lido Market to have some of the highest quality offerings of any buffet-style restaurant at sea.
