I am a travel agent that has booked myself and my partner on this cruise along with many other friends, and as of this past week when I called to book another couple, Don told me that they were 87% sold out, it'll be booked up by mid august.

My partner Tony and I are booked on the RSVP Feb 2005 sailing. We are from Florida and looking forward to the cruise. The Zuiderdam was great and we are sure the Westerdam will be too. Look forward to meeting everyone from CruiseMates.

Mark, what did you think of the Zuiderdam? The Westerdam is a sister ship correct?
anything bad about it? good points?

I'm also on the RSVP trip - my 13th with them. I was also on the Zuiderdam - I loved it. From what I've heard, the Westerdam is identical in layout, but much more sedate in decor. The ship is well layed out for almost everything, but IMHO, the only semi-negative is that the back deck (where RSVP sets up their disco and has their parties) isn't big enough.
Normally on HAL, they have assigned seating at set times. RSVP keeps the set times, but doesn't do assigned seating, which most seem to like.
Since this is RSVP's 20th anniversary cruise I expect them to have really great guest entertainment, and a few extras.
It's sold out now which is also good.

adamken,

Sorry for the slow response to your question. We had a hurricane named charley to deal with for the last few days.

The Zuiderdam was a great ship. As Thule mentioned the aft deck is small for the parties RSVP throws but almost no ship has a facility for 2000 dancing queens. Otherwise it was the perfect platform. The Z did have a very non-HAL interior but it was designed for the "younger" crowd Holland America is now chasing. I found the Maasdam interior more elegant.

Holland America provides a great main stream cruise experience and RSVP does there part to make it a family affair. We sail often on NCL, and the HAL ships are always fininshed nicer and the food one notch above. I know we will all have a great time on the Westerdam.

I look forward to meeting you guys next February.

My partner and I and two friends are booked on this cruise. This will be the first cruise for all of us. We have an A category aft cabin on the veranda deck and our friends have an H category cabin on deck 4. We're all very excited as we rarely get to travel together. We figured that this would be as good of a way as any to do so. Any advice?

Hello Ken and Adam,

We live in Naples Florida directy accross the state from Lauderdale. The Hurricane was a minor issue for us. Trees, powerlines and screened pool cages. North of us about 40 miles homes and businesses were completely destroyed. It is very sad.

We are in a S cabin on the Rotterdam deck (7). I can not remember the exact cabin number.

Talk to you soon,

Phil, we loved traveling with friends -- we just learned to think that we are not joined at the hip. Always met for dinner, and sometimes in port, but also went our own way a lot of times, too

I'm booked and am arriving the day before the cruise so I won't have to worry about
flight delays on the 20th. I'll be staying at the Holiday Inn on Sheridan street. Hope to meet you all onboard.
