Food and Dining

5 out of 5


3 out of 5
Too many of the onboard offerings were thinly veiled sales pitches\, resulting in many periods of time at sea with nothing of interest.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5

Pros: The ship was beautiful\, and the entire crew - including dining room stewards and room attendants - were extremely attentive. Both countries visited were fascinating.

Cons: Disappointments: In Sydney\, the ship was docked at White Bay Terminal away from anything of interest instead of near the Opera House as originally planned. Created at least half a day completely wasted. Did not visit Tasmania or Milford Sound - our top two reasons for booking this cruise.

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
