If you have traveled on ships like NCL and especially if you are traveling alone make sure you know that they do not have a dedicated crew member for solo meetups and this ship just doesn’t have as much to do.

Said this about Explorer's Lounge, but couldn't find a way to edit. It's actually about 2nd Deck Gallery Bar: Good shuffleboard and skittles. Could use more board games. Fantastic nightly $5 sample martinis! Explorer's Lounge on 10th Deck is outstanding with nice Library, views, etc.

Use the Navigator app. Helps keep track of all that is happening on the ship. Also the wifi thru the app is the best we have had on a cruise ship

Bring plenty of books, games or puzzles because the cruise director is very weak and there are no activities.

Plan your day with the when and where published each night for the following day. Also I found the Navigator on line to be a great tool. Use over the browser though. The app is not good and disconnecting all the time.

If your staying on a lower deck 1,2,3,4,5, Beware of the HORRIBLE PAINT SMELLS .Also when you go to the lower decks for activities you will smell it. The pool area and inside the gym had a smell of paint a few times as well.

I would never sail on Oosterdam again and may never sail with Holland again. They have gone down hill greatly.
