My favorites from our Westerdam cruise last month:

The chilled fruit soups, EXCEPT for the Mango which had onion and tomato - not a good combination!

The escargot was served the traditional way...

We were on the Westerdam last month and LOVED it! It's a beautiful ship with an awesome crew and a hunk for a Captain! I doubt seriously if you'd go wrong with the Westerdam!

I'm sure you probably know this, but it also helps a lot with wrinkles if you roll your clothes when you pack them rather than fold them.

All I can tell you is that I bid $55 and used both regions. I got the Fort Lauderdale Beach Holiday Inn and was perfectly satisfied with it for a one night precruise. There are several restaurants...

I bought a bottle of Jamaican Rum in Ocho and just brought it on openly in my bags - it was even sticking out a little. I didn't really care if they took it - I wasn't planning to open it until we...

Crayola, when we were on the Westerdam 12/11-18, Michael was in the Piano Bar... not sure what his last name is. He was "okay" in my opinion, not great. DS and I did the TV Show Name That Tune one...

Camille, that's because champagne (and wine) is allowed; liquor is not.

jig, AFAIK, soda is still allowed. We carried on a 12-pack each with no questions/hassles.

I don't know, Sail. He does look somewhat like him, but the guy in the photo has more of a youthful look, and Captain Harris has more of a debonair flair. I would have thought I'd know for sure,...

Great pictures, Pat! That Dan's a ham, isn't he?

I miss Edwin and Roman and "our" corner of the Ocean Bar! Sniff!

The gorgeous, silver-tongued Captain Harris is on the Westerdam as of 12/11.

My very first Captain - and I think I'm in love :o

Speaking of which, I was under the impression that no one actually wore their Mariner pins.... I was surprised to see quite a few of them being worn on the Westerdam.... just pinned to the breast, as...

As I said, I'm sure there *was* a Suite line - I just didn't notice it, or don't remember it. I was really commenting more to there not being lines for us grunts according to deck, and no...

I, too, feel you'll be happy with the accommodations in an SS. Of course, I've never sailed in an S, having only sailed once. It proved roomy enough for 3 adults not to feel crowded and the balcony...

Interesting. This does not sound at all like the process of embarkation we experienced in FLL earlier this month. There were only two "regular" lines, one for internet and one for not. You went to...
Yep, Rev, it's definitely weird.

The previous cliffhangers have been fun, if frustrating, but this one....

It *does* sound serious, doesn't it. I'm particularly concerned about the comment in the intro:

Dang, luvabeach, you just made me homesick for *my* Westerdam!

Didn't you just LOVE Yakim?? I'd always heard about wanting to bring your cabin steward home with you, but never thought it to be...

Katie, I replied to you on the topic where we discussed this rather than let this thread drift off topic.

Katie, I'm replying to the question you asked on the Balcony Mystery thread here, as this is where it's on-topic.

We took the Ocho Highlights tour. Don't worry about Margaritaville - you don't...

This, to me, is one of the oddest aspects of cruising. One would think if one threw 2000 random folks together, all things like itinerary, time of the year (school-wise particularly) and length...
A Curious Balcony Mystery
I had forgotten about this but thought of it today for some reason and thought y'all might be interested in one of those little quirky things that happened on the Westerdam.

We had an SS with a...

Well, if I follow the Rev's advice, I can use him to feed the fish on the ship, can't I? Or is he too old for that? Rev? Is there an age limit for that sort of thing? Methinks teens/early 20s...

In Jamaica, you don't say if you're going to MB or Ocho. If Ocho, I highly recommend Phil Lafayette, http://www.phil-lafayette-tours.com/. One parent and the 2 older kids can climb the Falls and...

Earlier this month on the Westerdam we (DH, DS and I) asked for a table of 8 and were seated with THE most delightful people imaginable.... one (by pure chance) someone from our roll call here on CC!...
