Top highlights onboard include Billboard Onboard where you can enjoy piano performances, trivia and more, the World Stage for innovative shows and the vibrant Rolling Stone Lounge for rock'n'roll, pop, country and other fantastic live performances!
Before the night ends, you’ll have time to checkout the casino, where this might just be the night where you win big (and can finally go on all the cruise holidays you could ask for!).
Fun for all the family is guaranteed onboard Oosterdam, especially thanks to the kids clubs available on every cruise. These include specially-designated spaces for 3-7 year olds, 8-12 year olds and 13-17 year olds. All have age-appropriate activities, meaning even the youngest guests can have fun and make friends during their holiday.
A family holiday is also about making memories together, and where better to do so than in High Score, the family game room on the ship.
Nothing says holiday more than a trip to a spa. On Oosterdam, the Greenhouse Spa & Salon has everything you need to enter new realms of relaxation. Boasting treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, steam room and aromatic room, there are also talented and experienced staff on hand to give you the pampering session of a lifetime.
If a trip to the spa isn’t really your style, there’s also an onboard gym, equipped with everything you could need to keep up with your workouts. There’s even the Lifestyle & Fitness Centre for anyone wanting to learn a little more about health and wellbeing.
As an alternative, and if you prefer your exercise to be more head to head, there’s the chance to challenge others to a game of tennis, basketball or volleyball on the outdoor sports courts.
The excellent facilities on Oosterdam ensure that every guest can find something to keep them occupied during their downtime onboard the ship. If you enjoy a bit of retail therapy, look no further than the duty-free shopping area, where you can pick up a treat (or two!) to take back home with you. There’s also a Culinary Arts Centre for any foodies out there, where expert chefs put on live demonstrations to wow the crowds.
In addition, Holland America Line like to give guests the opportunity to further enrich their cruise thanks to the Explorations speaker series. Experts are invited onboard to talk about their specialist subjects related to each region, delving deeper into the history, culture and cuisine of the destinations. Furthermore, the Explorations Café provides the perfect setting for picking up an interesting book and browsing the internet while you sip on a coffee.
This was a cruise out of Santiago Chile. The cruise itinerary was excellent and all ports were visited. I had a pre stay in Santiago for 3 nights first. Although it was great, I would advise as with everywhere, to be careful with personal items. Booking with Iglu was exceptional and I recommend them to all my friends!
Pleasantly pleased to find a good cruising experience on HAL and much better than previous cruise we had taken. Service staff excellent across all departments. Entertainment much improved since last cruise although we still miss the cast shows. Excellent music in a range of venues, although we'd of liked a little more variety. Food of good quality with good portions. Descriptions on menu could have been a bit more detailed. Sometimes menu items displayed on the App menu were not available. Bar service and quality drinks were very good.
Enjoyed the cruise overall and the itinerary was great. The ship could do with a little update, but all the crew were excellent and attentive, absolutely faultless. Unfortunately due to entertainers illness (presumably Covid) the last 3 days was a little quiet. The enrichment now includes art talks and was superb, both enlightening and entertaining, particularly Dahli and Banksy. I have booked again with Holland America Line, but am going to try a new ship.
Ship and crew were brilliant.
