Disappointing: Westerdam Cruise Review by reh1970

Meats tended to be overdone; a pork roast was dry and flavorless, a beef staek was cooked well, when it was More ordered med-rare. Another example of general dining room short coming was on the last day at Breakfast, I was finishing a Danish, reached to take a sip of coffee and the waiter removed the remainder of the uneaten Danish.

The boat has not met my expect...
