Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Wow, this was the best food we ever had on a cruise. The offerings in the Vista Dining Room were all beyond our expectations in quantity, quality, appearance, and taste. Well done. Kudos to the Pastry Chef who kept me craving more yummy endings to every meal.


5 out of 5
Wonderful choice of daily activities. There was more offered than we were able to fit into our schedule! Lots of choices for entertainment. Quality of instruction was top notch. Excursion offerings were great too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our captain was amazing and very personable. Bernadette in the Spa is the absolute best massage therapist. Also enjoyed "The Wine Guy" and 99% of the crew. Only one person disappointed us -- and to a large degree -- so I can't give a perfect rating for Ship Staff because of that one bad experience.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was the perfect size of ship for a cruise. Not too big. Not too small. Just right. We were pleased with everything.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Yes, I would have loved a suite, but our Deluxe Verandah Stateroom was very nice and we loved the location. Bathroom products were really good, the shower was great, the bed was super comfy, and thank you for the magnifying makeup mirror and hookups for hair appliances! The "towel animals' placed on our bed at night were so cute they made us smile. Cabin stewards did a great job.

Pros: Quality and choice of menu items in Vista Dining Room, room service, lots to do, staff friendliness, stateroom assignment

Cons: The production shows seemed a little dated.

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
