This was our first cruise and we found the Westerdam to be a beautiful ship. Our cabin was very comfortable and we found all of the staff to be very friendly and very helpful. Dining - We went "Dine as You Wish" and never had to wait more then a couple of minutes and usually went for dinner in the Main Dining Room between 7:30 and 8:00pm. We enjoyed most of the food, and really with the ...

overall, enjoyable, but of the more than half dozen cruises we have been on, this is at the bottom of the list. The cabin and the cabin staff were excellent; more storage than we have ever had in any stateroom. The food was passable, in comparison to other cruise lines. We do not eat in the dining room that often. This cruise, we dined in the dining room three times. The first time, the pork ...

Hotel Info Before starting the cruise in Athens, we stayed for 2 Nights at the Airotel Parthenon which was a nice cozy hotel located on the side streets in the ...

We are a couple in our early 60's who travel frequently. We have also cruised previously the last being a transatlantic in a Penthouse Suite on the Oceania Regatta. This cruise had as its main purpose the visiting of ports rather than the boat itself. We had booked a VA cabin but shortly prior to embarking were offered an upgrade to a Superior Veranda at a substantial discount which we accepted. ...

This was our 22nd cruise and our eighth Holland American Line (HAL) cruise since 1995, with each cruise on a different ship, except that this is our second cruise on the Westerdam. Our cabin was a super verandah suite (Category SY) on the Upper Verandah Deck mid-ship. We sailed on a 12-day eastern Mediterranean cruise from Greece, to three ports in Turkey, to two ports in Israel, to one port in ...

My partner and I sailed on the Westerdam from Athens for a Mediterranean cruise. This was our second Holland America cruise, the first being on the Ryndam. Overall, the ship is beautiful and well worth sailing. The staff on the Westerdam was eager to please, as was the case on the Ryndam, and the food was a marked improvement over the Ryndam. The Westerdam had four dinner seatings which was part ...

We just returned from 14 nights aboard the Westerdam. Other than the fact that the ship is huge........we found ourselves getting off the elevator and trying to figure out which direction to go, and because it was huge many of the bars and entertainment centers felt empty....our trip was AWESOME!!! This is our first cruise with Holland America and they certainly know how to take care of their ...
