Overall feel of Holland America

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are trying to pick a cruise . . . we want to go to the virgin islands which means we have basically all of the cruise lines to choose from. I have no interest in Carnival. Let me give you some background on us. My husband is thirty, I am twenty-five. We are NOT partiers. My husband is a Marine and a police officer, I am a public safety dispatcher. We want to relax and have a good time, without worrying about a ton of children. On the other hand, we don't want to end up constantly worrying about manners/etiquette or how we look because we're surrounded by elitest class type folks. I certainly do not mean that we have poor manners/etiquette (please don't think that) but I'm not sure I can pronounce ALL of the entrees in the dining room correctly either.

I have found a cruise on Holland America that looks amazing, but again, I'm worried about sticking out really badly.

Any idea if we'll fit in on Holland America? Other cruise line suggestions welcome!!
