Overview

Officially christened in 2003 by Her Dutch Royal Highness, Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the ms Oosterdam is the second in our series of Vista-class ships. As such she embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system that maximizes maneuverability.

Symbolic of Holland America Line's more than 135-year history of circumnavigating the globe, the centerpiece of the ms Oosterdam is a magnificent Waterford crystal globe, prominently displayed in a three-story atrium. First-time cruisers aboard this ship will quickly recognize the traditional touches that make Holland America cruisers regulars: a warm palette of colors accentuating an extensive use of crystal, marble, inlaid woods and brass, lovely flower arrangements, priceless artwork and antiques and a full wraparound teak promenade deck with padded deck chairs.

Guests on the ms Oosterdam will be able to "show and tell" their vacation memories through the Digital Workshop powered by Windows. Free workshops led by Microsoft-trained "techsperts" will show even the most novice camera or computer user how to take better vacation photos, make movies, edit pictures and create scrapbooks using a variety of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live services. Guests will learn how to share all their digital memories through email, blogging and social networking - so friends and family can see where they've been cruising even before they return home.

Join us aboard the ms Oosterdam for a Mexican Riviera cruise, scenic Alaskan cruises, or a Hawaiian cruise vacation.

having travelled with HAL several times previously and raved how good it was I was totally disappointed to find the standard of nearly everything,food, choices of menu, entertainmnet,co ordination of dinner and show times ,etc were nowhere near the quality of the other ships. 99% of other guests spoken to felt the same.
Several staff were excellent, but not many of them

My Seven year old daughter and I were very fortunate to win this cruise on the beautiful Oosterdam for a 14 night cruise around New Zealand via Hobart.

Embarkation:
This was extremely fast and smooth. It must have only taken about 15 minutes from the bag drop off to boarding.
Bearing in mind that the ship had just arrived from the Trans Pacific cruise and a good percentage of passengers were staying on board for New Zealand cruise.
This would have kept crowds down considerably at the check in desks.

Cabin:
We had a standard outside cabin on deck 1, #1045. We found it very comfortable and cosy. Everything we needed was here. Flat screen TV, mini bar, plenty of wardrobe space (for a ship) and the most comfy beds you could ask for.
In recent years we’ve opted for a balcony, but to be honest, on this cruise I actually preferred have the large picture window, given the weather outside.

Ship layout and decor:
We both found the Oosterdam well laid out and very easy to get around. It never seemed crowded, apart from the buffet and tenders etc.
The décor is very traditional, but I really quite liked this. You actually feel like you’re on a ship and not just on a floating hotel.

Fellow passengers:
At age 43, I would have pretty much been the youngest adult passenger on board. In fact a few times, I was mistaken for a contract crew member on a break !!
The majority of people were from the USA and aged between 60 & 80. We were lucky enough to meet a great family from Canada with kids my daughter’s age. Given that there were only about 10 kids on board, my daughter forged this friendship on the first day. We basically did everything together, which really helped make our cruise fantastic !!

Food & drink:
The food in the main dining room was by far the best I’ve experienced on any ship. Actually one meal in particular (the rib eye fillet with lobster tail) was up there with best I’ve had at any restaurant ashore !!
On this ship everyone dressed for dinner, so a suit was essential.
The Lido buffet was our choice for Breakfast and lunch. The food up here was plentiful and always varied.
All the usual breakfast items were served, (continental and American). It did get rather crowded at peak breakfast times, particularly on port days and we had walk around for table some times.
The fresh sandwich bar was great for lunch, along with sushi. My daughter loved the pizza and pasta and of course the ice cream !!
Overall I thought the quality, selection and service of food was excellent.
Drink prices were reasonable too. I think from memory a bottle Budweiser or Stella beer was around $6.50 US.

Entertainment: All the usual cruise ship (slightly cheesy) shows were on in main theatre lounge. They were good quality however and everyone seemed to enjoy them.
If you are looking for a more organised entertainment programme then the Ootsterdam is not for you. You certainly won’t find any belly flop competitions on here. Personally I really enjoyed sitting by the pool without all the noise and pumping music or cruise director instructions.
There is also great little cinema on board showing a wide selection on movies all day and night.

Pool, Spa and Gym: Given the climate on this cruise (not above 5 degrees on the crossing to NZ from Hobart) the pool dome was used the majority of the time, making it an indoor pool. The water was kept quite warm though and the spa pool bloody hot !
Most days we were the only ones in the pool.
The Gym was excellent. Great views from the treadmill out over the bow. Although staying upright in swell was problematic. You can jog around the promenade deck. I can’t remember the exact distance, but I remember doing 13 laps was equal to 7 km’s.
There was a great free weights section, which was mainly unused apart from myself and the dance crew.
Although I didn’t use any on the spa facilities, it looked lovely and I felt better for just walking through it !

Kids Club: (by Charli, age 7)
The kids club is called Club Hal. There were only 9 kids in kids club. There were 2 teachers called Jeremy and Kate. Jeremy was really funny and Kate loved to do art with us. We sometimes went for ice cream breaks and sometimes went up to the sports court for relays and ball games. On Halloween we all got dressed up and went trick or treating around the whole ship. Then went back to Club Hal for a party.I think it was the best kids club ever and I didn’t leave until 10pm every night.

Summery:
All in all we had a fantastic time on the Oosterdam.
She is a very well kept and clean ship. I’ve read other review claiming she is a bit worn and tired. Seriously, if you want to look for that stuff, you will find it. But given the amount of traffic from passengers, not to mention the pounding from the weather, I think the ship is in excellent condition.

If you’re looking for a relaxing, refined and traditional cruise experience then this is the ship for you
