Ship Facts: Oosterdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oosterdam Deck Plans
Holland America Line - Oosterdam - Good & Bad
Just back from a cruise (May 12 to May 19) and this is my 1st time with Holland America. I have been on other cruise line and their ship is huge so cannot compare them. I cannot said this ship or this company is bad but not outstanding either.

What they do good is Cleaningness. Oh my god, everytime we go somewhere, we see people cleaning. They keep everywhere as clean as possible. The decoration is not outstanding but nice too. they like to put many Antique decoration thing on the ship. Staff is friendly.

the cabin that i had is very good as it is huge. We are 3 people in the room and don't find a problem......

What I do like is their food. It is not bad and on average. However the seafood for me is below average which make me feel very bad !! as you go to Alaska cruise, you expect good seafood.......the choice is not much. what i mean is type of food. Their menu has many options but all the same thing.....shrimps everyday, beef everyday, salmon you just eat different cooking way of salmon other fish.....shrimp is always cocktail style......

the enterainment show is on average. compare to other ship, the show that i had on this cruise is very boring......only sining....magic is not super good....just so so.....

Activities kind of boring too, don't it is because the ship is full of senior or fun thing to do......i kind find it boring for me when I take this cruise compare to other cruise vacation......

I take this line is because big cabin; otherwise, i might go to pricess cruise line......
