DVD Players on the Westerdam?

Recommended Posts

if there are and they are the same type that we had on Volendam you could do what I did.

I figured they would be the type that play any kind of media.

I filled a cd with mp3's that the wife and I like to listen to.

I popped it into the player when we arrived and put it on random play.


whenever we wanted Our music in our cabin we'd turn on the TV, change over to the DVD input and listened while reading or out on the verandah.


Listning to Fleetwood Mac and the Doobie brothers while taking in the sights at Glacier Bay was surreal.

Any HAL ship that has had the Signature of Excellence upgrades will have a DVD player; HAL has indicated that this program will be complete by the end of 2006. I believe someone here had said that Westerdam's upgrades were completed (a post from a couple of months ago?). FWIW, we were on Zaandam a couple of weeks ago, and both our Verandah cabin as well as our friends' inside cabin had DVD players and LCD TVs.

It was my understanding that the Westerdam did NOT have DVD players because the ship was so new and they didn't want to pull out the new TVs to put in TVs w/DVD players like the other Vista Class ships.

Forgive me for not believing HAL on this, but if someone who will be traveling on the Westerdam in a regular cabin could clarify what exactly they have, I'm sure I'm not the only person who would appreciate it.

Thanks a bunch!

I appreciate the link, but there seems to be as many conflicting opinions on that thread as there are here. I would love to hear from someone who has been on the Westerdam very recently or will be soon.

Also... if there are no DVD players, I'm wondering if there is an easy way to plug in a portable DVD player and watch it on the TV. And as much as I apprecieate a good guess... in this case I'd like to know for sure. :)
