This was my first cruise and it was fantastic! Within 30 minutes after leaving port, I was sea sick. My first evening, which was my birthday, was spent praying the the ship would stop rocking and asking my friend to ask the captain for a helicopter to take me off the ship, but with the help of my friend and the wonderful crew of the Westerdam, I was feeling better within a couple of hours and was fine by the next morning. Of course, I took sea sick pills the remainder of the cruise and was fine. The 2nd day of the cruise the weather was so rough that we could not dock in our first port of call. That really wasn't a problem since the cruise director came up with additional activities for the entire ship for that day. There was something for everyone on board --- from an Art show, the Spa, the pools, the casino and a lot of different games. The remainder of the ports that we visited were very interesting and we sailed some of the most beautiful waters I have ever seen. The crew was absolutely great --- so friendly and helpful. The Shows --- they were awesome!! The food was fantastic -- from dining in elegance to buffet --there was every type of food that anyone could want and it was excellent. The passengers were some of the nicest people I have every met and enjoyed sharing time and stories with some of them. This is one of the few vacations that I have taken that I really felt like I was on vacation -- in fact, I felt like a Queen -- a Queen, not just for a day, but a Queen for the seven days of the cruise. I hope to go again very soon!!
