Default "Oo Dam" The cruise is over!

We returned last night from our Thanksgiving cruise on the Oosterdam. The cruise was very close to perfect in every way. David and I are usually fairly critical but found little to fault on this wonderful ship. We had a wonderful huge cabin, fantastic food. and better-than-ever service. Wow! We met wonderful people and the weather was amazing too!

We really enjoyed how easy it is to get from the San Diego airport to the cruise ship terminal. We were pleasantly surprised by the very low $7 taxi fare plus tip each way to and from San Diego airport. How convenient! One could almost walk from the airport to the terminal, even with multiple bags. (No need to buy the overpriced airport transfers from H.A.L. here!)

We had a morning flight from Portland and were on board the ship by 11:00 A.M. We couldn't believe it was so easy and smooth. We strongly recommend this port as an alternative to L.A./San Pedro. What a difference!

Our pupster, "Knock-Knock", is on our laps and "Mijo" (birdbrain) is on our shoulders. All is good! Ugh! It's back to work tomorrow!

Chuck.. glad to hear the O was such a good cruise. We sailed the Westerdam and loved the ship and especially the layout. Gave it a small ship feel.
