Amazing, but don't book Deck 1

Sail Date: June 29, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our experiences of spending time together. The glaciers were amazing, along with the mountains, water, and the people on the ship. I read an article in Juneau about cruise ships, use of fuel, and pollution. That bothered us. We LOVE to go on cruises, but we feel a bit convicted because we're contributing to the problem.

Pros: Family time at least three times a day over gourmet meals.

Cons: Noise on Deck 1; we think we should have been told that ahead of time.

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Rooms larger than other ships we've had.
Food and Dining
Our servers were very accommodating; excellent food and presentation. Wonderful that we could eat special dishes from over 25 countries. Surano (sp) and Tiger were great! The wine server was sweet, though we didn't have anything to drink at all. He always stopped by to wish us a wonderful evening.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward was so quiet, helpful. We almost never saw him, but he kept everything perfect throughout.
Dancers were equally highlighted with singers. Jeff Tracta (sp) was especially good.
