Relaxing on my balcony or by the pool was great. The service by the pool was excellent. The food in the dinning room, buffet, or our 24-7 room service was outstanding. Near the pool is the Dive. Best Burgers and Hot Dogs are served there. We enjoyed the convenience of the layout of the ship. It was so easy to get to anywhere we wanted to go on the ship. The Entertainment kept us busy at night. There was always a show or comedian who was excellent. We also enjoyed the B B King Lounge. We danced the night away with a terrific band. The ports and the excursions were just Amazing! I highly recommend this cruise on the Holland America Westerdam. My whole family had a Amazing Adventure!
