Default Activities

Hello never cruised before and was wondering what type of activities there are on board? I know there are shows, a casino, but I've read they don't have a movie theatre on the new Westerdam. Other than eating, sunning, and swimming wht is there to do...I worry about my husband getting bored!

I just got off the Volendam from Alaska and never found any time to be bored. Between ports and viewing from the deck (not to mention all the planned activities) I only found about 6 hours a night to sleep (on one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on). Not to mention the non-stop eating aboard. Never in my life thought I would be at a midnight chocolate buffet,,but there I was. BTW, I can bore very easily.

No movie theater? There must be becouse the Oosterdam (a sister ship) shows movies in the Queen's Lounge. Basically they just renamed the movie theater "Queen's Lounge" and use it for different activities. We had good movies too!

Thanks for the movie theatre update. I didn't see one on the deck plans so i thought they didn't have one. Hopefully they'll be good ones...especially if I don't do well in the casino. Anne Lee
