Mediocre at best

Sail Date: December 07, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Food and Entertainment were mediocre. Don't book this ship unless you want to be underwhelmed or asleep by 9PM every night. Celebirty and Carnival Liberty food quality and service far surpasses this ship. Our first and last HAL trip.

Pros: The ports of call

Cons: Food and Entertainment

Recommends Westerdam? No.

Food and Dining
No better than other ships we've been on (Carnival, Celebrity, NCL, RCL, Princess), lower quality than others.
Only two good shows out of 7 night cruise isn't fun, it's boring.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Grand Turk Island
A scuba diving hot spot, never a bad dive on this island. Hurricane damaged parts of the reef but still clear dive with abundant life. I will miss Alexandar, the 45 LB grouper who's no longer there.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Rained heavily the day we were there. Went shopping and out to lunch. Don't miss Casanovas Italian if you're in the mood, you won't be sorry.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Two severe hurricanes damaged the reef and life but still a good dive. Dive shop was far away at 45 minute drive each way, almost on top of Belize border.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Clean and well planned spot. Snorkeled right from the main beach and filmed an octopus swimming around.
