Sail Date: November 28, 2015
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Suite

This is our third cruise on the Westerdam....also the shortest.  We enjoyed a relaxing itinerary, stopping in ports we have visited before.  Entertainment on ship was good.  Portion control big time in the main dining room.  Pinnacle Grill and Cannaletto both excellent though.  We also think the décor in the companionways is starting to look dated and a little drab.  Love the layout of the ship.  They have closed our favorite bar in the atrium.  We heard the noise from the bar was disturbing the guests in the Pinnacle Grill.

Love the layout. Clean too. Décor is starting to look dated and drab in some cases.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great stateroom. Even though we were under the pool deck, the noise of moving chairs, even the deck party was not a real problem. Cabin stewards provided excellent service.

Ship Tip

The side elevators mid ship were the easiest to access and fastest. Pay attention to the support columns in the show lounge, there are obstructed views. Many different lounges to take advantage of. Don't forget the pool behind the Lido restaurant.

If driving...take advantage of the Park N Go lot service. Make parking reservation on line.

Best beach is right next to the pier. If beach is what you want, don't take an excursion. Beach at Margaritaville is best and free.

Easy to find discounted city tours once you get off the ship. Lot's to do here.

Megan's Bay was closed. Tour operator took us to an alternate beach that was great. How this place has grown!
