Verified Review
7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 06, 2014
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7042
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The entire onboard staff are excellent, and the boat is clean and attractive for it's age. The food in the dining room was average, and the specialty restaurants were excellent ! The entertainment in the bars seemed to be geared to the 80 + year old passengers, and the main ballroom had Dancing with the stars, which was terrible !!!! We had a balcony and unfortunately some of the ( entertainers ?) from the ballroom  were next door, and they made such a racket, that sitting outside to read, or just enjoy a drink was impossible.If you are a senior, and early to bed, this is a great boat !!!

Ship Tip

Everyone on board is very helpful, considering the age of the majority of passengers on board . My wife and I are late 60s, and weren't ready for all the people in walkers, canes etc., and the habit they seem to have about wanting to be first off the boat, in the buffet line , etc. really annoying !
