Review summaryThe ships smells like a sewer. Although they upgraded many of the areas, the second deck smells horrendous. The second deck is also where BB Kings Lounge, the Billboard Lounge, and the casino are housed. the first floor of the main dining room is on this deck too. The officers did not speak to either myself or my husband which was disappointing. On Princess, Celebrity, and Disney everyone speaks to each guest if they pass them in the vestibule. I do not not recommend this ship or this line to anyone, regardless of their age. Actually, the age thing didnt really bother me. I am in my early 30s and my husband is in his late 30s. We traveled a s a multi-generational family and everyone (even my 85+ grandparents) said that they were bored on the ship. There is literally nothing for you to do. I wish we had taken princess or Celebrity as a family. We all would have had a much better time. Our room steward, Enjay, was pretty good. The dining room attendants were great and very friendly. The ports were to-be expected.I had traveled to Alaska before on the Disney cruise line. I just say that Disney is hands-down the best. They are well-worth the price. The entertainment aboard the Westerdam was horrendous. The folks in BB Kings are truly talented. But, those two singers in the dueling piano bar are the WORST. Where is Simon Cowell when you need him.
Food and Dining
I have had better food on different cruises.
The experience was nice. The servers need an attitude adjustment. There was one named "Bun" that didn't want to serve any other guests coffee. he huffed and puffed under his breath the entire time.
Get better talent.
Very nice. The folks at the front desk were nice too.
The casino is okay. The activities person in the casino was friendly. But, the smell of sewage was disgusting in the casino.
Clean and quiet
Nice selection of artwork. My mother bought a piece.
