We are sailing on the Oosterdam Aug. 15 from Copenhagen. Originally this was it's 4th cruise. Recently we heard that it's first 2 cruises were cancelled and now we are on the 2nd cruise. This makes us a little nervous.
There are huge naming celebrations planned for the end of July in Rotterdam with the Queen of the Netherlands scheduled to attend as well as many "invitees". The Rotterdam is scheduled to be in port with Oosterdam and reports are the ships will be docked bow to bow and the "bottle" will be thrown from the Rotterdam to the Oosterdam. Seeing as all of these festivities have been planned, there is every reason to believe Oosterdam will leave the boatyard as scheduled.
