Westerdam Cruise Review by stephen phillips: Westerdam - Eastern Caribbean
Overall Member Rating
Westerdam - Eastern Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
First time on HAL but cruised many times on other lines embarkation 1st class best so far cabin and ambience also 1st class food although very good was a bit bland. needed something but cannot put finger on what. Disgusted that you received an 'invitation' to dine at the pinnacle grill and then found you had to pay $30 per person for the privilege. Hey! the food is already paid for. I can understand a small cover charge but $30 No way. Why did the ship allow people to smoke? This should have been on outside decks only (although I would have preferred nowhere)It was impossible to go into the casino through the fog and the same applied in the piano bar. The price of Photos was also a disgrace. $21 for 1 photo.????? people must have more money than sense. I wanted to purchase 5 photos. I offered them $60 for the 5 and they refused. so I did not buy any and put them in the bin. Fat lot they know about sales and marketing. However overall I was extremely satisfied and happy with the cruise More
and would have no hesitation in using HAl again.
I also met a number of Cruise critic members and found them very friendly including the man with all the slippers who invited us in for a drink. Less
