21 Night Southern Caribbean Seafarer/Wayfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 16, 2015
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 8088
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Overall, pretty good.  Found the ship extremely cold.  Not enough music in many areas.  If the 4 pc. combo was accompanying the entertainment of the night, the area (bar) they usually played in was empty.  The gym equipment was not maintained very well.  The staff was excellent.  Cabin was noisy (under Lido Deck).

Very pleased with the cabin, except it is below the Lido eating area and tended to be extremely noisy late at night when they were cleaning or setting up for the next day. We complained to front desk and they tried to work with us, but I don't think we would stay in any room below the Lido eating area again. Like the 8th floor (Navigation Deck), but not at that end of the ship.

Ship Tip

Liked most of the ports except Samana. Thought that was awful. The ship was very cold in many areas. This was especially true of the Vista showroom. It was freezing. Also, we noticed many cut backs in many areas. Other cruises always had music going on and it was festive. This time, it wasn't
