An average cruise experience

Sail Date: February 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is very clean. Service by wait staff and cabin staff is excellent. Verandah Staterooms were very small compared to other ships. The cruise director seemed lost - more interested in selling bingo cards than anything else. Little activity provided around the pool deck except for some sales of merchandise. Food was inconsistant. I returned 2 out of 3 fish dishes - under cooked or over cooked. Meats were obviously not top quality' Public areas were decent. No late shows provided - assumption was evrybody goes to sleep at 10 pm after the main show\, with little lip service to anything else.

Pros: Excellent service by all staff

Cons: Strange food combinations; Cruise director inexperience: small cabins

Recommends Westerdam? No.

Shows and entertainers were excellent in all venues. Cruise director information dissemination was poor and often misleading. Talks about ports of call by travel person were excellent. Mariners Brunch and High Tea were a waste of time and embarrasing.
Service and Staff
General staff was excellent\, helping whenever needed
Cabin / Stateroom
Small cabins with dated decor. Staterooms need a renewal.
Food and Dining
Inconsistant food quality. Obviously HAL did not buy top quality meats. Told to make reservations for anythime dining - not able to do so - just show up. Then why are we told to make rerservations?
