Overall Rating:

1 out of 5
Sail Date: June 01, 2012
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Could not sit on balcony and see anything because of metal railing. Most rooms had plexiglass railings but ours did not. We PAID for a balcony and got no kind of discount nor was anything said that indicated some rooms had "obstructed view" balconies. This was a special 50-year anniversary cruise for us and the first time we had cruised with HAL. I would never book with them again.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was average. Discriptions on menu were "pretentious" and did not reflect the actual item you would get.


3 out of 5
Compared to Princess tours, HAL tours were pricey.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Office was not concerned with my complaint about "obstructed view" balcony.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Barely enough room for beds although it included a small sofa, table, and chair (which were useless because of cramped conditions.)

Pros: Rapid embarcation and debarcaction

Cons: Paid for balcony but balcony had "obstructed view" :(

Recommends Oosterdam? No.
