Oosterdom Disappointed

Sail Date: January 18, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The embarkation went well, but having a bad generator gave me no confidence.


Disembarkation felt rude. We were in the last group and had to leave our room an hour before getting off the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom
Bathroom electrical outlet did not work.
Carpet was kind of grungy.
Door handle to balcony was badly corroded and even the repair was not good, in my opinion.
Again the ship is about to be renovated, but I was not impressed.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
4 hour wait because of sea emergency was handled quite nicely. The shuttle into town was a nice trip. All employees were extremely helpful. Park-n-Go was outstanding.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Not enough time. The flee market was about all the free time we had and that was short.
Castries, St. Lucia Gondola over rain forest was interesting. Bus ride was good.
Bridgetown, Barbados
Submarine trip was very good.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Watch the bank ATM. They say $2 and then charge $5 more for any cash. Get cash on the ship.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Tram ride was a ripoff. Lunch: Ribs were terrible and I did complain to an employee but that do no good.
