Westerdam Overview

Launched in 2004, the Westerdam is a spacious, mid-sized cruise ship operated by the Holland America Line. Her relaxed and friendly atmosphere and frequent sailings to the sunny Caribbean make her a firm favourite among the North American cruise market.

Specs: Westerdam at a glance
The Westerdam weighs 82,348 tonnes and measures 936 feet in length. She can accommodate 1,916 passengers and 800 crew members. Her maximum cruise speed is 24 knots.

Accommodation: Westerdam rooms and suites
There are five accommodation categories onboard the Westerdam: interior, oceanview, verandah, Signature suites and Neptune suites. Ranging in size and catering for all budgets, these rooms are comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully presented.

All standard staterooms have Eurotop mattresses, mini-bars, bathrobes, flatscreen televisions and DVD players. At the other end of the spectrum, suites come with perks such as separate living areas, fresh flowers and bathtubs.

Entertainment: things to do on board the Westerdam
The entertainment staff work tirelessly to ensure you're having a great time, organising everything from live entertainment to enrichment classes. Here are some highlights:
  • Treat yourself to a pampering experience at the Greenhouse Spa & Salon
  • Relax and rejuvenate in the Hydro Pool
  • Sharpen up your cooking skills at the Culinary Arts Center
  • Settle down with a good book in the Explorations Cafe and Library
  • Watch a live production show at the Vista Show Lounge
  • Socialise over a cold drink at one of several bars and lounges

Food: Westerdam restaurants
Whatever you feel like eating, the food on the Westerdam has you covered - from vegetarian options and light snacks to fine dining and specialty restaurants, there's something for everyone.

Dining included in your Westerdam fare:
  • Vista Dining Room
  • Lido Buffet
  • Dive-in at the Terrace Grill: burgers and hotdogs

Specialty dining (not included in your ticket):
  • Pinnacle Grill: upmarket steakhouse
  • Canaletto: Italian restaurant
  • Explorations Cafe: specialty coffees and pastries

Destinations: Westerdam itineraries
The Westerdam spends one half of the year sailing to the Eastern Caribbean from Florida, and the other half embarking on longer trips to destinations such as Hawaii and French Polynesia. The shore excursions available will of course depend on your chosen itinerary but you can expect a good mix at every port, with something to suit all interests and activity levels. To give you an idea, popular examples include ziplining in San Juan, downhill mountain biking in Honolulu and deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale.

Things to remember: Onboard the Westerdam
When planning a trip onboard the Westerdam, it might be a good idea to keep these things in mind:
  • The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and a smart casual dress code applies. There are also two formal nights per sailing, so be sure to pack some of your best outfits.
  • Daily gratuities are automatically added to your onboard account, and the currency is US dollars.
  • If you're travelling as a family, there's plenty to keep your little ones entertained, from organised youth programmes to family-friendly areas throughout the ship.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
