A Great Cruise!
Oosterdam Cruise Review to Europe - Mediterranean
Sail Date: June 24, 2009

We have sailed on the ms Oosterdam in Alsaka twice before this cruise. We were pretty excited to be sailing on the ms Oosterdam once again in the Mediterranean.
The ms Oosterdam was in dry dock prior to our embarkation in Venice. The changes was obvious when we came aboard in Venice - new carpeting in public areas, the new Culinary Arts Center (it wasn't there in 2006), and the re-configured staterooms. Otherwise, the ship looked pretty much the same as it did back in 2006.
One thing that we both noticed is the ship seemed to vibrate a lot more while under way than we remembered. We are not too sure if it was an imbalanced prop or maybe we have become more sensitive to vibrations but there was a definite difference.
