Many of the experienced Princess cruisers I have met - mainly Americans, reckon Holland America is a very good line to travel with, better standard than Princess.

Yep I think I have to go along with that. We did Pacific Princess in 2005 and then we did the Statendam last year, Vancouver to Auckland, prior to that we did 7 nights Alaska, and this year we did Grand Princess New England/Canada, I really think I prefer Hal, service is better, Lido v Horizon was better and we could have our meals in our cabin on Hal, not the same service on Princess. Otherwise much the same, with Hal winning by a nose.

We have cruised on HAL a number of times (48 nights mariner) and have never had a complaint against them. This is from the US ports to Carribean, Alaska and New England. We are currently booked on Sun Princess to Tasmania in February and am looking to compare the two products...even the Australian version of Princess.

Aunt Frog must be not sleeping on the last night before we cruise. Sorry but according to my calcs we have 28 sleeps to go!! This time in 4 weeks we will probably be falling into bed exhausted after a busy & long but very satisfying day and letting the waves rock us to sleep!!

Don't bet on that Chaz. I could hardly feel any rocking. If I woke up during the night I had to remind myself I was on a ship. A bit dissappointing really coz I like the rocking.

I love the rocking too,so let's hope for a little rough weather at least at the start of the cruise
