Help thinking of switching from RCCL Jewel to HAL Westerdam?
We are thinking of the Westerdam for Spring of 08 or doing the RCCL Jewel again - but are looking for something a little bit more - we have a Westerdam - SY room on hold and a Jewel- D-1 - does anyone have any info on the Westerdam - pros and cons need to decide by Monday.
We have never been on the Jewell or any other ships other than HAL, but we have been on the Westerdam in an SY cabin and loved it. On that particular cruise we were in 8094. On the Noordam and Zuiderdam we usually take 6092 and have been very pleased.
SY cabins have double sinks, bathtub and shower stall in the bathroom - nice and large. The sofa will sleep a 3rd person - it doesn't open out like a regular sofa bed but somehow the cabin steward "flips" it to make it into a bed. DD said it was very comfortable. The beds are twins, but can be pushed together to make them into a Queen. Balcony is a nice size - lots of cupboard space and a desk and dressing table.
