Ship Facts: Oosterdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oosterdam Deck Plans

After having cruised with various lines (20 times) My wife and I decided to try the Holland America line (Oosterdam) cruising to the Pacific Islands on the 2nd of March 2014 for14 nights

Embarkation and disembarkation was excellent

The ship to us seemed too dark in colours Our cabin with balcony (the balcony could not be used due to cabins on either sides were smoking and of course the smell wafted to our side made it very unpleasant)

Also smoking in the casino and other places should be a definite NO as internationally smoking and passive smoking is a Health Hazard

We did not like the Lido having different service bays and to line up in one then lining again in another and the food getting cold

The screening room was a joke 32 seats for 1900 passengers

The port of Luganville was wasted time , why not go to Champagne Bay which is nearby

Two months previously we were advised by another Line that in New Caledonia there was a severe ZIKA FEVER alert Nothing about it was told to us. I mentioned this to the other couple on our table who approached the medical about it (they knew nothing about it) and yet someone in the front office was aware of it
