Good Times on the Westerdam
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The itinerary was a new one for us. We enjoyed snuba on Grand Turk and the America's Cup Regatta on St. Maarten. Both of these were ship's excursions and the latter was fantastic. In San Juan we explored Old Town on our own using the complimentary shuttle. On Half Moon Cay we had a good beach day, bringing our own snorkeling gear and swimming with the fishes, literally.
It's difficult to come up with anything negative about this cruise. We experienced no problems on More our cruise, unlike some others we've been on where management clearly needed improvement. The ship is not a new one, but one had to look hard to find small signs of wear. The crew was hardworking and efficient and the activities were great. The passenger group was a cordial one with a mix of older, middle aged, and more younger families and couples than I've seen before on a HAL cruise. We cruise for price and itinerary and the Westerdam was a good choice for us. Less
Spacious oceanview cabin near the forward elevators. Includes both a couch and chair. Equipped with a refrigerator. Very convenient and comfortable cabin.
