Going into it, I was a little nervous about getting all our luggage to our room, finding my way around the ship, the emergency drill, getting through customs at ports, security, etc. What I learned is that every last detail has been thought of and planned for. It was easy. So relax and let the Westerdam crew take care of you. No need to stress!

Use the unlimited laundry service for $108 for 12 days. Might seem a lot but it was well worth it.

I think this ship is perfect for cruising when you have lots of ports of call and not too many sea days. The staff is so helpful though, and the spa is always great, so there is always something to do.

As soon as you board the ship explore every floor and what they have to offer ... Take a nice long walk around the ship on the third floor !

Be on time or early for dining. More time to enjoy your table companions and more time to relax and eat 😊

Don't expect too much from the shore excursions. Pricy, and basically you get what you pay for.

Wait until the ship has completed maintenance and upgrades in April 2017.

Not an overall well appointed nor attractive ship. Outdated decor. When we first arrived on our cabin floor we smelled a distinct musty odor in the hallway. That cleared once the A/C began pumping and a day into the trip the odor was no longer apparent. But I knew it was masked not gone.

The better you plan your trip, the more you'll enjoy the journey, time flies by so fast you'll wish you would have booked a longer cruise, we maximized every minute , We had a fabulous time , but we looked forward and planned very well . wouldn't change a thing.... Thank you Westerdam

Get to the shows early... the early show starts at 8 pm and usually by 7:30 pm all the good seats are taken and sometimes there were no seats available at all (for two people wanting to sit with each other).

The side elevators were a plus. They were faster then the regular elevators.

I would recommend trying all the dining choices, the Lido, the dining room and the Pinnacle. They all had a wide choice of meals and the food was great. The itinerary include some really fun choices. We took the Pirate Ship whale watch and had a great time. No long lines anywhere.
