This ship was very elegant and well-kept. I was particularly impressed by the art. The crew was phenomenal - every crew member encountered\, from engineering to deck crew\, always greeted me with a smile and a cheerful greeting.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Overall\, this was anexcellent experience. The Vista dining room was first-rate\, particularly at dinner. The Lido buffet was always quite good. I had a very tough steak at the Pinnacle Grill and this was quite a disappointment considering the upcharge of $25 pp.


5 out of 5
The entertainment was excellent\, from the large stage shows to the amazing Tim Kelly at the piano bar. I didn't do many of the other activities - just liked to chill on deck and relax\, and I arranged my own shore excursions. The HAL's private island\, Half Moon Cay\, was simply stunning and the highlight of the cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Simply outstanding. The captain's sense of humor was great\, and every staff member I met had a warm smile and friendly greeting.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Perfect size\, well-maintained and tastefully decorated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Verandah cabin on the Navigation deck\, forward. Very comfortable. I loved taking morning coffee on the verandah and watching the ocean slip by\, or sitting out at night under the stars.

Pros: Staff\, entertainment\, ambience

Cons: Smoking in casino and on decks.

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!
