Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin: Signature Superior Verandah Suite

We cruised from Barcelona to Rome, June 16-28 and were pleased by most of what the Westerdam had to offer. But the food was a bummer.

We are vegetarian, which limited the choice somewhat but even the choices with this limitation were few. Aside from pure salad, it was hard to find plain food. Everything was loaded with cream, heavy cream. Also, we found out that there is a vegetarian menu only 4 days into the cruise! And the choices there were not great.

Other than that, we had a fine time. The cabin was excellent, the staff was amazingly courteous, the entertainment was varied enough to serve everyone, at least part of the time. The ports of call were pleasant enough - we usually walked around with local directories in hand (we don't like tours with 20 to 50 people - they are unwieldy).

Cabin Review

Signature Superior Verandah Suite

Cabin SS

Cabin was spacious and well appointed. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom, with double sink and hot tub, was good. Veranda was large enough, with comfortable deck chairs for relaxation.
