  3. Oosterdam
We are a family of 4, mum, dad and twoo teenage daughters. This was our 6th cruise with HAL, all in the Med. The Oosterdam was recently refurbished in dry dock. She looked very fresh. We used anytime dining but with an angoing reservation at 6:30 pm. This is a great way to have fixed dining (and sometimes even fixed seating) but not to be limited to the regular fixed dining times 6 pm or 8 pm. The entertainment was great. The cast was excellent and performed in 3 shows during the 12 night cruise. Great addition with the upgrade from the piano bar to Billboard onboard. We loved Diego and Meagan on the dueling pianos. We upgraded to a suite from a verandah stateroom to a neptune suite. The suites were brand new and gave nice perks like breakfast at the Pinnacle Grill and of course the great service of the Neptune Lounge stewards.

Great ship and after the dry dock: even better

Cabin Review

Neptune Deluxe Verandah Suite
Cabin SA 7050
During dry dock the suites have been renewed. The new suites are really great. Large space to move around even when the couch was extended as a bed. There were four in our room and we had lots of space. A full bath (jacuzi) and a separate shower so parallel showering takes up less time. A separate dressing room / walkin closet.
