A great first cruise!

Sail Date: November 13, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

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.

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!

Service and Staff
Always helpful and willing to lend a hand.
Good shows and times.
Ship Quality
Smooth Sailing!!!
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a veranda room and enjoyed our sea days sitting and watching the ocean go by.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Excellent beaches and excursions. Next time I will try more like Parasailing.
Don't Miss: Parasailing
Willemstad, Curacao
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.
Oranjestad, Aruba
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.
