35 Night Circle Hawaii & South Pacific (San Diego To Seattle)
Sail Date: April 02, 2016
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 4074
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Getting on board was a VERY BAD experience. About 500 people in line waiting to check in (most over 65 years of age) which took me THREE hours standing and waiting. There were plenty of seats available, and no one involved in the check in procedure was smart enough to pass out group numbers so people could sit and relax while those ahead could check in...

Once on board the crew and staff on the ship were very nice.

The ship itself needed to be fixed up, thread bare carpet on stairs, upholstery needed repair in crows nest, and a apparent window leak in the crows nest due to rain which made the crew put blowers on the carpet to dry it out 2 or 3 days.

Also, the air conditioning made several areas of the ship to cold for comfort.
