There is a great article about the Westerdam in Todays St. Pete Times.
Go to www.sptimes.com also a nice one about the new Carnival Valor.
Look on the left near the bottom of the times sections, clik on travel and it is right there.
Hi there Sea Trekker. Just got back from my Westerdam trip. Excellent time and fantastic trip. Are you going to be going on the Veendam this year? I will be on the Veendam in late November. Nice to see your post. Lynn
Thanks for sharing the articles. They were excellent and offered interesting comparisons. Just glimpsing at the Westerdam vs. the Valor photos of the Farcus designs quickly illustrate the clear differences in taste between HAL and CCL. Even though Carnival owns it all, I hope that HAL will continue to adhere to higher standards.
