Ship Facts: Westerdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Westerdam Deck Plans
This Has It All!
In May 2010, five friends and I had the pleasure of going on a Mediterranean cruise, with two days pre-cruise in Venice, and a four days post-cruise in Barcelona. Through Holland America, we prebooked tours in all but two ports. Each tour was fabulous and flawless, and even the weather was perfect, although it rained one day in Venice, but that just made it more fun.

The Westerdam had been beautifully re-decorated since I had last been on it, and the staff were as warm and curtious as ever. Our room was a little small for the three of us, but the excellent service from our cabin stewart made up for this.

When we disembarked in Barcelona, Spain, we had hired a private company to pick us up (immaculate, comfortable van); take us on an extensive City Tour; then up to the amazing Montserrat Monastery; and drive us to our hotel. Carlos, of Barcelona Great Tours, was prompt, professional, well-grommed, and delightful.

Carlos was such an excellent driver and guide, so kind and considerate. His knowledge and love for Barcelona was remarkable. It is such a beautful, clean and safe city. This was a perfect ending for our cruise, and, beginning of our post-cruise stay. Carlos was so helpful again in getting us to BCN airport at 3:00 in the morning to catch our flight home to Canada. Without doubt,I would hire Barcelona Great Tours if I had the good luck to return.
