7 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 06, 2008
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 8 years ago
The ship was nice, but in need of some refurbushing. Seats at the Lido Restaurant were worn out and should have been repaired. Some fo the walls were in need of touch up paint. Our last Holland America cruise was over 12+ years ago (before the Carnival acquisition) and it seemed that the ship was far more meticously cleaned and kept up than this time.
5 out of 5
Had a great city tour which we contracted for right on the dock.

Don't Miss: Zip lining

Too many vendors and beggars at the dock. Couldn't even walk 5 feet without someone peddling something. A lady put an iguana on my daugthers head to try and solicite a $2 fee. SHe was terrified and was very upset by it. THen, this lady held on to my shirt until I handed her money
Don't Miss: A restaurant on the dock that had live music was great with a bucket of Corona's and chips for $10

Pros: Being with Family. Good Food. Nice Ship

Cons: Lack of Information prior to cruise

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
