This was our first cruise ever and everything was flawless. The crew and staff are excellent and made sure our experience was magical. The ports of call where exciting and interesting. The private island in the Bahamas was phenomenal!! We are considering another cruise already for next year.

Food and Dining

Exceptional Wait Staff and Wine Steward. I recommend asking for Jude Villarosa as a wine steward on the Westerdam ship. He made this trip very enjoyable and is the siingle most reason we would consider the Westerdam again.

We had a veranda room and enjoyed our sea days sitting and watching the ocean go by.

Excellent beaches and excursions. Next time I will try more like Parasailing.
Don't Miss: Parasailing

We walked around and took a local tour. The Curacao Liquere is excellent and we brought some back. A little larger than Aruba and not as exciting.

We walked around and took a local tour. It is a beautiful island.
Don't Miss: Take the Tour of the Island either thru the ship or locally.

Pros: the staff and crew where tremendously friendly and helpful.

Cons: Bartenders need to learn how to mix drinks - Chocolate Martini, Gin Stone Sour.

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!
