Oosterdam will debut in August 2003. Is anyone going on this cruise? We are scheduled to depart on the Oostedam on October, 14, 2003 from Lisbon, ending in Rome on October 26. We would be interested in hearing about the ship.
Please let me know if you hear anything about the Oosterdam. We are sailing on October 2 and can't find anyone who has been on ship. Also which excursions to take. If I hear anything I will let you know.
I understand the maiden voyage is 8/3. We have booked on the 8/27 voyage of the Baltic. Have read mixed things about her sister ship, the Zuiderdam--hopefully, they learned from past mistakes and will correct these issues before putting the Oosterdam into service. We are in an aft cabin and are looking forward to our first Baltic cruise.
We are on the same sailing than you, and we are looking for two more people to join us on a private 2-day program of St. Petersburg. We have a deluxe private vehicle with a driver and a licensed English speaking guide. We will visit Peter & Paul Fortress, Hermitage (including the Golden Room), Pushkin (Catherine's Palace), Peterhof, Savior of the Spilled Blood Cathedral, St. Isaac's Cathedral, and we will also do the city highlights. The cost is $149 per person per day, or $289 for the 2-day package including meals.
