Sail Date: Nov 2022
Cabin: Large Outside Stateroom (fully obstructed views)

We took this Southern Australia cruise to test how cruising had changed since covid. Being for us a local cruise it visited the cities we wanted to visit with mostly overnight stays.

This was our second cruise on the Westerdam and our 9th with HAL.

Overall the cruise was fine given the limitations imposed by covid requirements. All ports were met the crew friendly and efficient as ever.

Cabin Review

Large Outside Stateroom (fully obstructed views)

Deck four obstructed. As expected. No complaints.

This was the first time we opted for obstructed. Never again as the room was always dark due to the tender outside. Still prefer deck 4 midships but back to partly obstructed next time.

Port Reviews


Nice city lots of things to do. Easy train service from port to city centre
