We had an absolutely amazing cruise on Holland America Oosterdam on September 9th – the 12-night Mediterranean Tapestry
We loved the service on the ship, the size of the ship and our fellow passengers. Everyone was so nice!
The cruise director was front and center throughout the cruise and we felt there were many activities offered although this was a very port-heavy cruise and our priority was being in port and experiencing everything that Europe has to offer.
Loved our cabin with absolutely the best views. Loved that the balcony only had a neighbor on one side and the other side the neighboring balcony is set back so it feels a bit more private. We said it was like watching National Georgraphic magazine from our balcony. The bed was amazing and my husband enjoyed the in-room movies and documentaries. We had plenty of space for our things and could have brought more.
Breathtaking port where you are surrounded by mountains.
Walked the city walls. Dubrovnik is a hot spot right now for tourism so expect crowds.
We went on our own and got a museum city pass. You can realy wander and get lost. We splurged and did the gondola. We are glad that we did. It is $80 before 7 pm and then $100 after 7 pm - we did ours at 6:15 pm so we got the less expensive rate and it wasn't crowded. We agreed after our trip that we are glad that we did it because we probably would have regretted not doing it after we left. No regrets!
