Retired, have cruised to the Mexican Riviera, the Caribbean, Alaska, and have a New England/Canada cruise planned for September 2013.

December 2016 - 7 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip) Cruise on Westerdam

Great Dam ship.

To say the food was good would be an understatement.    We ate lobster,  escargot,   foie Gras,  lamb chops, prime rib and a myriad of delectable dishes too numerous to describe.    The room was ample in size,  and has a shower AND a bath tub,  a nice feature not always seen in other cruise lines.    Our "fully obstructed view"  cabin had a peek a boo view which brought in much appreciated sunlight.    The staff couldn't be any better.   It is a science to know when to be present and available and when to allow privacy and Holland America has acquired the skill. Only flaws:  no horseradish with the prime rib: faucet in bathroom had a small leak: some of the interior of the bathroom shows wear and is cracking.   Ship is dated and needs an overhaul,  one that is scheduled next year. Happy

cruisercutie's Tips

Westerdam Westerdam - First time using anytime dining. Loved it. Meet many people and freedom to coordinate activities.
Portland, Maine - Eat at Susan's Fish n Chips....Great fish caught locally and has specials. We had TWO fish sandwiches for $2.25 and the fish was great.
Boston, Massachusetts - Union Oyster House....expensive but worth the experience. Go see the Holocaust statements etched in the glass towers across the street from the restaurant. WOW.....will stay with me forever.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - See the Love Game Show....Very funny with passengers from the cruise as contestants.
