We sailed to Alaska and were very unhappy. I was so looking forward to this cruise for the past 5 years. We were celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary and saved for 5 years. The ship was not at all as to what I expected. The stateroom was small and old with holes in the pillows on the sofa. Not what we thought it would be. Would no travel on this ship again.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The one postive thing on the ship was the food in the dining room which was excellent as was the staff. Lots of options to chose from.

The size was small. I thought if I paid a little bit more the amenities would be better they were not. Stateroom was small and the furniture needed to be updated.

Pros: The food was very good

Cons: Staff was not friendly

Recommends Oosterdam? No.
