My Wife and I were on the Oosterdam for a 7 night cruise to the Eastern Carribean and we had a wonderful time. The crew were all great and it helps if you try to pickup some of the phrases the staff speaks, such as thank you, hello, goodbye, good night as it was greatly appreciated and adds to the fun. As for the ship, let me say my Wife found it to be a pleasure to be on as she had a bad experience with seasickness on another cruise but not this one. You will really enjoy yourself ! Also, if you are into exercise, 3 trips around the deck equals 1 mile! The only problem...too much food!!!!! Well, not really 'cause that's part of the fun! Have Fun!!!!!!
