We had a GREAT time!

Sail Date: September 01, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

WE had a delightful time\, despite some high seas at first...the captain revised the itinerary so this late in the season we did not get into Sitka\, but had the same other stops\, with additional 5 hours in Victoria! Our excursions they were able to jockey around to suit us\, and nothing was left out. With the extra time in Victoria\, we were able to wander the city leisurely and had a great and memorable time. The previews of the ports by Julia were excellent\, and the information by the National Park Guide was very interesting\, after we had left Glacier Bay area.

Pros: The excellent staff revised itineraries so we had our excursions with no problem!

Cons: It was more crowded in Lido deck with more tables put along the walkways

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
I can see where more tables on Lido deck would be necessary to accomadate the huge group of travellers\, but in the walkway of the dining room they made traversing the area a little more difficult.
Food and Dining
The food was delicious\, great menus\, good variety\, and the dining times were helpful. The barbecue area with extra menu was a great addition!
Cabin / Stateroom
Good and comfortable. We were able to find extra blankets stored under the beds and the staff recognized that we needed the extra warmth and left them on the bed! The use of gels and shampoo in the shower was helpful\, and certainly alleviated a lot of the extra work providing the little bottles to the guests daily.
Service and Staff
The staff were knowlegeable\, had great memories to remember when anyone had not been feeling well
The nighttime shows were fantastic\, drawing from excellent talent and outside talent for special showing. The movies tho' were at odd times\, one or 2 listed at 5 pm when we had a 530 dinner time. One excellent movie for a day at sea was shown 3x at 1030\, 130?\, and later at nite.
