Pros and cons

Sail Date: September 21, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The staff was excellent, however, every meal in the dining room ee felt very rushed. Breakfast was especially uncomfortable. It got so bad that I refused the dining room and opted for the Lido deck buffet. The captain is very conservative and I appreciate that. For the first 48 hours no one serves themselves in order to minimize the chance of spreading illness onboard. He does not hesitate to alter course if weather calls for it. Staff and cleanliness are amazing. Food is mediocre and portions are wuite small. My two sons always walked away hungry. This was my second time aboard the Westerdam and I would sail with her again.
