Our cabin was way up front on deck four. We did experience a little more bouncing then in the past. This could be for several reasons:
1. We were way up front.
2. We were in the Pacific as opposed to the Caribbean.
3. The Oosterdam is a smaller ship.
4. We were in 5-7 foot waves - Ship's log said so.
Again, not bad, just a bit more than I like.
Cabin was fine. Plenty of storage. We had a broken toilet seat, reported it and it was changed the same day.
Food was very good. I read that HAL food was bland but I didn't think so. Dinner offered 4 appetizers, 4 starters, and 5 entrees every night plus some "standard fare" if noting looked good. We were quite pleased.
We did go to the Pinnacle Grill - the speciality restaurant one night. Wow. I know it's $20 bucks extra but, hey you're on a cruise. Food was excellent. Portions were huge. Service as expected.
Shows were good. Typical sing and dance reviews. We really enjoyed the comedian/magician. He truly was amazing.
HAL offers Microsoft Digital Workshop Classes. Great stuff if you want to know more about computers or uploading digital photos. Very helpful - hands on - they had about a dozen computers in use.
Great library. Best of any ship I've been on.
Other activities included little things around the ship. It's not that big so no mini-golf or rock climbing etc. Yes, the crowd was older but it was a pretty good mix of families as well.
Really, no complaints and I will sail with them again.
You can also take the taxi to the beach area for tourist shopping, and the usual downtown stuff. Not bad. Great sand sculptures but not really a beach to swim at, more for just walking.
