Review summary

If you're looking for both a relaxing time with lots of sea days and active adventures on shore excursions Holland America's San Diego round trip to Hawaii is for you.

The crew and staff of the Westerdam were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Meals in the main dining room were very good and excellent in the specialty restaurants. Enjoyed the entertainment and America's Test Kitchen live and on TV.  Currently the Westerdam needs some maintenance work on decks and in public areas, but it is going into dry dock in April. Plus the service staff do a great job of keeping everything in great shape. Deliberately chose very active shore excursions so we enjoyed relaxing on the outbound and return sea days.
