Better than average
Oosterdam Cruise Review to Mexico
Review SummaryOverall the ship was pretty good. The lay out could have been better, more pools, bigger hot tubs, etc. Good size weight room, lido dining room needs to be bigger (becomes very crowded at times). We enjoyed the entertainment..."american idol", magician, pianist, comedy show, bingo, etc. This was our third cruise together (my wife's 4th), have only been on Princess cruises in the past...we got to know the activities staff on this one...had not on the previous cruises.
We did two shore excursions...kayak and snorkel in Cabo--the staff was very good and friendly, kayaking was fun, saw sea lions. Snorkeling was lame...very cold waters, nothing to see...approx $50 per person.
Canopy zip line tour in Puerto Vallarta-- approx 1 hr ride (one way) in the back of an open but covered unimog (an adventure but tolerable)...if you can tolerate the exhaust then you will be ok. The zip line was very fun, great staff that ran it...approx $100 per person
