Great experience on the Oosterdam
The ship looked great. It is obviously not new, but I thought it was in good shape and very clean. Most of the carpeting in the ship's public areas had just been replaced. I liked the decor and artwork. The crew was very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent! I especially enjoyed the English tea and the cupcake tea during the afternoons.
The ship was operating at full capacity - More well over 1,900 passengers - but it never really felt crowded. Food lines weren't long even when the crew was serving in the Lido (instead of self-serve)and there was always a place to go on the ship for a quiet, scenic place to relax. We chose the flexible dinner time, and the longest we had to wait to be seated was 10 minutes. Usually, they seated us right away.
After reading the last few reviews shortly before we left, I was concerned about how our trip would go, but they must have fixed all of the problems during the week-long remodel. We had a great time! Less
