Ship: Westerdam

Sailing Date: 2010-01-23

Itinerary: Southern Caribbean

We traveled as a group and the virtually unanimous conclusion is that the cruise aboard the Westerdam was a wonderful experience. Rough seas precluded stopping at Half moon Cay, but it certainly did not put a damper on fun. Really enjoyed the many on-board activities, such as "Name the Oldie" and trivial pursuit contests, as well as the most entertaining evening shows. Only criticism/recommendation would be with respect to smoking, especially in and near the casino, which definitely dissuaded our group from spending much time (or money) in that area. STRONGLY suggest that Holland America introduce smoke-free cruises. Food was outstanding and featured waitstaff that went out of their way to memorize your name. Would definitely cruise with Holland America again.

Outstanding, in terms of quality, quantity and selection. Ate lunch in the Pinnacle Grill one day and its was absolutely fabulous.

We had a room with balcony that was reasonably spacious, but kept immaculately clean.

As noted above, activities offered numerous choices and were msot enjoyable. Entertainly director was first-rate.

Took island tour shore excusions in both Aruba and Curacao. Satisfactory, but should not be considered as "don't miss."
