Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Talked with several other cruisers on this trip who normally cruise with HAL, all agreed the food has gone down hill, also not enough servers at the buffet lines. we all think HAL must be cutting back on the number of crew to save money. All the crew we met were very friendly and helpful but I think over worked. the entertainment was also down from previous cruises. only one semi production show.
less pool side music and activities then previous cruises.
We are cursing on the Nordam in Feb which is the sister ship to the Westerdam so we will see if this is a HAL problem or just this ship

Pros: ship, beds and linens, cabin, staff

Cons: food, not enough crew, entertainment

Recommends Westerdam? No.
