Default Sail away party on the Westerdam

Can anyone who has travelled on the new Westerdam tell me if there is a Sail Away Party on leaving Fort Lauderdale and if there is a pool band. I read somewhere that HAL don't have this. Is this correct?
Thanks to all for your info.
James

We were on the Westerdam a year ago and they did have a Sail Away party on the aft deck with a band. I don't know where you heard that HAL doesn't have these parties. They have special drinks, for which they charge.

Have fun!

Thanks DeeDee for the info. Actually I can't remember where I read about HAL not having a Sail Away Party but I do remember someone saying there was no band during lunch hours like Carnival has for example. Anyway once again thank you. Yes we're greatly looking forward to our 2nd trip on HAL.

I've sailed on the Westerdam, but I've not gone to the Sailaways ... too busy with other stuff.

The band they had last November by the pool was not your typical Caribbean band. More like a jazz band. I missed the steel drums.

they have a sailaway with the steel drums band whenever they leave Ft. Lauderdale or leave a Caribbean port. If the weather doesn't cooperate they have it in the enclosed Lido pool area.
