Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The service was exceptional, From dining to cabin state room, everything was at your fingertips, We loved the entertainment, the kind and politeness of crew and staff. The crew of Westerdam really wanted you to have the time of your lives, and we did. We left the ship feeling like it was a home away from home, and we cant wait to return for a future cruise...

Mexico Riviera Cruise

Great cruise, the whale watching excursion at Cabo San Lucas was the best we've ever had; actually saw whales breaching and doing peduncle slaps, it was amazing.  The tours of the cities of Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta were very good; we had never been to these cities before, so the city tours worked out perfect.

Trip was mostly enjoyable, only real issue was dining. Dining room was good service, food was adequate - but not 5 star. Lido deck was very slow and not the greatest. Seems like the hours didn't match our schedule.

Boat atmosphere was great, I'd say its due for some upgrades in floor covering.

Bars were slow and inconsistent quality on drinks.

Entertainment was OK, but we like comedians and you only had one night.

ship was very crowded!  long lines for everything.  service in staterooms was slow, often had to wait 30-60 minutes to get ice.  Casino was crowded all the time.  difficult to find on open machine.  very difficult to get service in the casino (understaffed?).  Lido deck was so crowded it was difficult to find a place to eat.  often had to take our food back to the room just so we could sit and eat.  Smoking is no longer allowed on the balconies.  We asked for open dinning, were assigned an 8pm dinner time.  no flexibility on this once you are on the ship.  Evening shows were not the best.  Only stayed for one.  plus with an 8pm dinnner time the only option we had was the late show.  these were crowded too.  often didnt stay for the show because there was no seating.

Our family Mexican Riviera Cruise!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

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!

A Great Trip

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship was a nice size and easy to get around. It never seemed to be crowded. The food and entertainment were first rate. We had a mini suite at the front of the ship that was very comfortable. The 2 cabin stewards assigned to our section were always close by and took care of everything quickly.

 

This was an older crowd, so I wouldn't recommend this cruise for families with small children. Everyone we met was very pleasant to talk to.

 

A special thanks to our waiters in the dining room, who were from Bali. They made every meal worth remembering.

 

Holland America also made getting on and off the ship easy and relaxing. Not the chaos that we've experienced on other cruise lines.

Use the side glass elevators on port and starboard--they're much faster than the regular elevators!

Had open seating for dinner and that made it very convenient. However, we felt it took too much time so ate at the buffet mostly. Some better choices in the dinning room, but the food in the buffet was great. All drink purchases had an added gratuity (15% I think), so no need to tip.

For Open seating, we just booked a reservation from day to day and never had to wait to eat in the dining room.
