  3. Oosterdam
We will keep this brief! We are a couple in our mid to late 50's with a number of cruises behind us. Oosterdam was in great shape, extremely well maintained. The stateroom (signature suite) was well designed and incredibly spacious. Mega large balcony, great storage. Food in the dining room was above average...but there was limited opportunity for specialty dining (one and a half restaurants). Our only complaint...social activities were non existent. Ship "went to bed" at 11 pm. A few good shows, excellent band in the bb king lounge, but when they laid down their instruments..it was over...as in,,,dead. HAL needs to put some effort into after hours cruise activities...take a lesson from celebrity on this one. Good itinerary...
