January 21st to January 28th, 2007

Mike accepts full responsibility for choosing this cruise. He thought the itinerary looked interesting and he felt that we were getting into a cruise funk since we were sailing so much on Royal Caribbean.

We would not believe that it would be possible to be bored on a cruise, but we were on Westerdam. Sure, the food was fantastic and our room was delightful. However, the entertainment was horrific and they “rolled up the sidewalks” by 9pm each night.

We took this as a learning experience. Maybe in 30 years or so, we will be better suited for cruising on HAL.

This cruise sailed from Fort Lauderdale, with stops in Turks and Caicos, St. Maarten, Tortola and Half Moon Cay.
