This was our first cruise and we loved every second of the experience from the moment we stepped onto the ship in San Diego to the last minute of the last day..... We had a blast!!! The crew ships crew was outstanding in every way and made us feel welcome from day one. This was an A+ cruise, vacation and experience and we were sad as hell when it came to an end.. I would highly recommend this ship and it's team to anyone looking for that perfect vacation!!

The food was great, there was lots of it and it was well thought out for evening dining. We didn't focus on the food so much because we were having so much damn fun doing everything else.. The food = A+

We chose a larger stateroom with a balcony...this made the voyage wonderful. Our room steward "Bagus" was the best. Our room was always kept in perfect condition and we had to ask for nothing. It's their attention to detail that makes all the difference.

We saw several shows to include a tribute to the Eagles, musical and dance performances as well as Joseph Trans magic show...All were fantastic!! We went to cooking classes and towel animal folding and found those to be fun and we won at Bingo!! We spent a good deal of time just hanging out by the pools and drinking "The drink of the day" which was great and we also hit the casino pretty hard.....I lost !! Lots of on-board activities to do....we did most of them and had a great time! A+

We did excursions in every port and had an absolute blast at every one. I was glad to see that it was super easy to find your way to where you needed to be once off the ship. So many people there to guide and point to where you needed to be for your particular excursion. The Guides were friendly, helpful, informative and a hell of a lot of fun. We felt safe at every port which allowed us to concentrate on having fun. Excursions = A+

Kari and I travel a lot but this was our first cruise. If i was to pick one word to describe the ship, captain, crew and the total Oosterdam experience it would be......."Perfect"
