Loved the Westerdam. Great cabin 10018 with excellent location. Good viewing when on a southbound cruise. Entertainment great and went late into the night. BB Kings good. The 2 piano players in the Billboard Bar were also great. Food good. Only disappointment was lunch in the Pinnacle Restaurant. Not worth the extra $. Not sure why a Coconut Trifle would gave 2 layers of rich chocolate that overpowered the taste of anything else...inedible. Strawberry pavlova...better pavlova in the Lido. Crab cakes for appetizer were excellent. Entrees (mains) pretty ordinary. Dinner may have been better. Santos and Otto did a great job in looking after us in our stateroom on Deck 10. Recommend this Stateroom, in particular location. Great service with a smile everywhere. Plenty of updates from the Captain. Smooth sailing. Embarkation was easy and we were able to board earlier than designated. Disembarkation needed more signs for lines of group colours. Easy to look up everything on TV in cabin, e.g. account and dining menus for the day. Good movies too.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VB 10018
Excellent cabin in great location. Smooth sailing so good choice. We were southbound from Seward so good side to be on. One deck down and at the pool and Lido. Explorations on some deck so close to good coffee. Only 1 basin in bathroom not 2 like I had seen elsewhere in reviews. Shower over tub. Plenty of hanging and shelves in wardrobes. Walkways in cabin tight but no different to others we have been on. Balcony was covered with 2 chairs and small table. Plenty big enough for amount of time used. Hair dryer make up mirror, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner all supplied. Would definitely choose again.
