  • The Vista-Class ms Westerdam joined the Holland America Line fleet in spring 2004. On board, guests enjoy a space-per-person ratio unsurpassed by any other ship in a fleet already known for spacious comfort. In addition, Westerdam has more of what guests desire: More staterooms with private verandahs. More dining choices including the reservations-only Pinnacle Grill experience, and the Lido Restaurant, a culinary courtyard. More ways to relax in The Greenhouse Spa and Salon.

    First Time Cruiser - Loved It!

    5/2018 Alaska
    Full Review
    I could not have been happier with my first time cruise. There were maybe three children onboard, a plus for me! I loved the adult, classy atmosphere on the ship. The size of the ship and the ease of getting around. I never felt crowded or disappointed in anything we decided to do. We loved the observation deck and our morning caf treats! The information and programs provided onboard were great. The ease of boarding and leaving the ship, the open dining, the classical music programs, everything was fabulous. I was so impressed with the ship, crew and itinerary that I plan to go again in the future with my husband and expect to enjoy the same level of service, and my experience on this ship has spoiled me, making me loyal to HA line!
    Pros Quiet, classy ship, gorgeous room, friendly crew and service!
    Cons Morning coffee delivered to room was on strong side and a bit bitter, but the service was great.

    Panama Canal cruise

    4/2018 Panama Canal cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Vancouver
    Full Review
    We were surprised by the quality of the food in the dining room. While still on the bland side it was well prepared and there was a good selection. Dinners in Pinnacle and Rudi's Sel de Mer were excellent. Band and singers in BB King Allstar Blues Band were all excellent. Very average food in Canaletto. Definitely not worth paying anything extra for this. Poor location being part of Lido. Quality of dancing and choreography of production cast dancers was poor. Singing was good.
    Pros entertainment in BB King Blues Club, food in general, Signature Suite cabin, dining room and suite attendants
    Cons production cast dancers, Canaletto specialty restaurant

    Overall the cruise was fine, a bit long in the tooth with all the sea days, but we knew going in that there would be a lot of at-sea-days. The ship looked like it had been refurbished in the last year or so, which made it look fresh. This was the first Holland America Cruise where we found that the crew spoke English (second language), but had difficulty processing what was being said, a bit of difficulty with language nuances. For instance, when asked about a certain fish on the menu that I was unfamiliar with, the response was that it was seafood. Because of the sea days, it was disappointing to see that the library had been dismantled, and for those who wanted to dance (yes! Old people do like to dance), the crow's nest has been turned into a coffee hang out, with the ability to order a drink in a very low-key atmosphere. We did enjoy the cruise, the food was fine, and cabin cleaned thoroughly every day.
    Pros Great Cabin, Lido and Dining Room Stewards
    Cons Gym trainer derogatory towards passengers who didn't purchase what he was selling.

    HAL charges extra for items that I think should be included. To charge for bottled water when going ashore to a port where they recommend you do not drink the local water smacks of opportunism. Basic Wi-Fi should be included.

    Wonderful Mid-Size Ship

    11/2017 Mexican Riviera
    Full Review
    All in all, a wonderful cruise! Food was excellent in dining room, Canaletto's, Pinnacle Grill, and the Dive-In. Every member of the crew we encountered was very friendly, courteous, and accommodating. Good variety of entertainment and most was good (except the magician). Especially enjoyed Danny O'Brien on piano at Billboard Onboard. B.B. King's Blues Lounge was good. Selection of daily activities was fine--varied enough for most everyone. We had a cabin on the Verandah deck (balcony) and it was nicely appointed, though a bit small. Bed and other furniture was very comfortable. Really appreciated the traditional dcor, statuary pieces, and art in the public areas. Would book this ship/cruise again.

    Loved this ship!!! We have been on a lot of cruises on different lines. This is a midsize ship. Quick embark & debark, great service on entire ship. Good food in main dining room & room service. Loved Canelettos and Pinacle Grill Steak was very good. We LOVED Billboard with the dueling pianos. B B King was good. Lincoln Center with classical music was interesting. Always a show in main stage room. Shrimp Feast in Mazatlan was great. Beautiful grounds, pool, live music, food & margaritas!!! Leaves out of San Diego so no flight. We will take this cruise again!!

    Adriatic Dream

    Full Review
    This ship was recently refurbished and is beautiful and inviting. Elegant but comfortable. Out Captain was the best putting our safety first each time even when he knew a later departure or arrival would be unpopular. The crew was as advertised in their literature and ads and genuinely enjoy the service they so skillfully provide with such personalized care. Dining with HAL provides the right options and the meals in the dining room are really part of the experience and adventure. The new EXC lounge in Crow's Nest was a great place to learn and relax. There is music for every task or mood of the day. This was a spectacular cruise and we have already booked our next with HAL.
    Pros Ports, Captain and crew

    We had an easy transfer from our flight to the ship with assistance from the staff at the airport. Our stateroom was well located near the aft elevator, which made for easy access to the dining areas. We enjoyed our open seating dining, as well as our dinner meal in the Canaletto Restaurant. We did not sign up for any excursions, since we had visited all three ports before.

    Hawaii Tahiti April 2016

    4/2016 Hawaii and Tahiti
    Full Review
    The weather was out of their control, and basically it rained all the time in the South Pacific. Our first stop there, Fanning Island, was a zero visibility situation so we sailed on to the Rarotonga where the sea was too rough for the anchor to hold the ship. The only reason we stopped was to offload a medical emergency. So off we sailed to the next wet island. Raiatea was a pleasant stop for my daughter as she was able to converse in French and they had a great bookstore. Bora Bora was too rainy to take a chance and by that time, I had a bad cold (as did quite a few passengers, lots of coughing). We got off in Papeete as they docked. We enjoyed a really great ice cream sundae in a sidewalk cafe but we knew it was expensive ($17 each -- location, location, location). It was hot and muggy but we got back to the ship before it rained. The last stop, Nuku Hiva, was again, a disappointment. We question whether that stop should have been scheduled. Only one tender could land, and the commercial dock was off limits. We got our tender tickets at around 10:30am, waiting time almost 2-1/2 hours to go ashore. By noon It was in the 90's with no shade on the dock to shield us from the one day of blazing sun, so we passed on going ashore as did many of the other passengers. But we really enjoyed our days at sea and spent a lot of time by the pool.
    Pros As always, the food was great., the personnel were great. Room service was always good. We did appreciate the Pinnacle dinners, the highlight of the eating experience. Hawaii was terrific, as always. We look forward to visiting there in the future.
    Cons I noticed that there were fewer hand sanitizers around the ship compared to the other dam ships. Some of the bathroom fixtures look like they should be replaced. The tour people were under pressure, lots of excursions were cancelled because of bad weather.

    Food, room and some entertainment are all that's covered in the initial price. Everything else is not and they are not cheap. But, the service and attitude are excellent.
    Pros Service, smiles, attitude of employees, on time boarding and disembarking, luggage handling with airline

    Alaska cruise - Westerdam, HAL

    6/2014 Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Victoria BC
    Full Review
    This was a great itinerary with very helpful and friendly staff. The evening at Le Cirque was fabulous and the excursions offered were excellent. A balcony stateroom offered an excellent view of the Glaciers. Sitka was a great port and offered many choices. Enjoyed the Art Walk and a visit to the Fortress of the Bear. The excursion with the Deadliest Catch Bering Sea Crab fisherman in Ketchikan was so much fun and very informative!
    Pros Smaller ship; excellent service; great itinerary; easy departure from ship at ports.
    Cons Entertainment/shows not as good compared to other ships. On the evening stop at Victoria, we found most shops closed at 4pm and the ship arrived at 6:30, which was a disappointment.

    North to Alaska

    5/2014 Juneau - Ketchican - Sitka - Victoria

    Overall Holland America offered a quality cruise. As a retired food service equipment sales professional with over 43 years experience my opinion is as follows. Overall food quality - exceptional. Some minor negatives - coffee needs an upgrade - too weak. Some meat items need improvement. (steaks - bland/unseasoned - my family owned a steak restaurant) Sometimes bacon not completely cooked - should be cooked crisp. Service staff attentive - captain friendly and personable - cruise director Michael and his assistant Linda did an excellent job! Dining room staff did an excellent job especially Harry our waiter. New program for expediting luggage to final destination is a keeper. Improvement on document logistics is needed to insure all forms are in order - my wife and I did not receive info letter and custom form in the paperwork package sent to our cabin. Had we not seen another package belonging to traveling companions we would have been delayed at disembarking. One of our group of six couples never received the luggage expediting forms package.

    The Canal

    4/2014 Panama Canal, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico
    Full Review
    Our cabins were near the top just behind the bridge, close to the gym. We were even fortunate enough to exchange a few greetings with the ship's captain in passing. Our cabin stewards kept our room spic & span and even created different sea creatures each night from bath linen. The accommodations were satisfactory and comfortable. We enjoyed the evening entertainment and were delighted with Mollie, the computer tech teacher. Loved the Explorations Cafe and lending library---what a treasure!
    Pros Location, location, location

    We sailed on the Westerdam 4/15/2014. It had just gotten out of a major overhaul during the past month. The rooms were great. Most of them had new carpet. The food was really really good. The surprise was the shows. They were all new and very good. Usually cruise ship shows aren't the best. Captain Scott was interesting and very good also. I look forward to my next cruise
    Pros new interior
    Cons smoking in the casino except for 1 day/week

    7-Day Alaska Round Trip Seattle Cruise

    7/2013 Alaska
    Seattle is a great departure port. I suggest arriving a day early to explore Seattle. Taxi is about $40.00 from the city to Pier 91. Embarkation was slow, since there was a very large group on board. Sailing was very smooth and the captain was outstanding Glacier Bay. He made certain that we all saw the bears and little cubs. It was amazing. The port were nice, but the shore excursion rates were high. The busses & guides in Juneau and Ketchikan were very knowledgeable. We did the kayaking in Juneau and all the gear was provided. The Russian Heritage tour in Sitka was not our best choice. We were very lucky to see so many whales and wild life. I would highly recommend this cruise, specially for a first time cruiser.

    The Westerdam was very clean, loved the staff, the food was outstanding. The Lido Deck had BBQ's and an Alaskan Salmon Bake. It was a big hit with all cruisers.
    Pros Overall one of the top cruises in this market.and category. Disembarkation was very smooth.
    Cons Mediocre coffee and slow WiFi
