Review summary

This cruise was perfect for someone who wanted a low key, relaxing trip. The crew on the boat were amazing with top notch service and great personalities. The food was deciduous in the main dining room and the view was breathtaking. The only thing that we found disappointing, was that there aren't many shows before 8 pm. Our dinner was the late seating, which made it hard to catch any shows before. So our trip consisted of a few trivia afternoons and a martini mixology class....which don't get me wrong, was an absolute blast! There were a few families, but not many, and the average age was about 60-70, couples..but if your not going to find a date, and just want to relax, this ship is perfect.

The staff on the ship are what made the trip for us. They were fun and have my daughter, who is 22 years old, some people closer to her age to talk with.

Cabin / Stateroom

Pull out was not the most comfortable but my 22 year old slept on it. Since you don't spend much time in your room, it was fine for us. The cabin steward was fantastic and was always making sure we had what we needed.

Ship tip

The ships crew was amazing. We were never sure when we were supposed to tip in addition to our daily 11.50$ per person charge. If I was wealthy, we would have tipped them constantly. Amazing crew on the Westerdam.
