10 Night Westfarer Caribbean Holiday (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 23, 2006
Ship: Volendam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was very clean and well maintained. It was very nice in it's layout and decoration. The ship was nicely decorated for the holidays which added to the festive atmosphere. Our outside stateroom was well planned with more than enough storage and closet space and a nice bathroom with bathtub.
5 out of 5

Don't Miss: Rent a moped to sightsee and don't miss Truman's Little White House

Very clean island and friendly people but taxi rides are very expensive and priced per person. Outstanding scuba diving

Good shopping for jewelry. Margaritaville is a good place to eat. The town is very clean and well layed out for cruise ships although you have to tender. Good scuba diving.

We did the zip line, canopy tour and it was outstanding. The trip out there was very long and uncomfortable but worth it. The scenery was breathtaking and the zip line was one of the best shore excursions we have ever done. We have also done the cave tubing and loved it also.
Don't Miss: Zip Line

The island is very dirty and we were offered drugs several times while walking around. Margaritaville is a good place to eat.

Nice but nothing to due if not on a shore excursion. Unfortunately our shore excursion (scuba) was canceled.

The internet description of our shore excursion was misleading and therefore our shore excursion was not what we expected and we did not enjoy it. It was very over priced too. The country side was dirty and the people we encountered blamed all their country's problems on the United States.
