About HAL Westerdam

Westerdam

The Ship. Built in 2004 and refurbished in 2010, the Westerdam is a member of HAL's Vista class of cruise ships. Each of the four ships in this class is named for the Dutch word for one of the four main compass points. ("Noord" for north, "Zuid" for south, "Oost" for east and of course "West" for west.) She weighs approximately 82,000 tons and accommodates only about 1,900 passengers--a high space-to-guest ratio.

The ship features museum-quality artworks including an oil painting of the city of Utrecht painted in 1842, plus contemporary art including photographs of jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie and BB King. Learn about all of the onboard works with an IPod® self-guided tour of the collection. Passengers will find the ship large enough to provide plenty of choices in onboard experiences, yet small enough to feel cozy and intimate.

Dining. The ship features a number of dining options:

The main dining room features impeccable service and an extensive wine list. Five-course menus include continental cuisine, vegetarian and low-carb options. You may opt for traditional cruise dining with assigned times and tables, or choose HAL's As You Wish Dining for more flexibility.

The Pinnacle Grill is an intimate, reservations-only venue that serves premium Double R Ranch Beef and as well as a variety of seafood dishes for an additional dining fee.

Canaletto is a classic Italian restaurant serving seafood, grilled meats and more in a relaxed setting for dinner. This venue features a selection of antipasti, salads, soups, pasta, seafood, grilled meats and more.

The Lido Restaurant provides a relaxed ambiance for all three meals and features a variety of fresh, cooked-to-order specialties.

Complimentary 24-hour room service is also available

Daytime Activities. The Westerdam features two pools (one indoor and one outdoor), plus two hot tubs and two kids' pools. The Westerdam offers HAL's Explorations activities program, where an experienced travel guide educates passengers about the culture, wildlife and history of the ports to be visited. A Digital Workshop, powered by Windows® - offers fun, free learning about digital photography, videos, scrapbooking, blogging and social networking. The Culinary Arts Center presents interactive gourmet cooking lessons taught by professional chefs. In addition to an Internet cafe, WI-FI is available throughout the ship.

Spa and Fitness. HAL's Greenhouse Spa & Salon offers all of the healthy and relaxing treatments one would expect at an upscale spa including massages, facials, and body wraps. Their signature treatment is the Hot Stone Massage, which they describe as “Harnessing the properties of volcanic basalt stones, guests are bathed in warm water and anointed with spicy, sensual aromas of the Orient. Deep penetrating heat from the stones massages the body using traditional techniques to release muscular tension and balance the spirit." The Greenhouse Retreat is a communal relaxation center that has an ambiance similar to a Turkish Bath. Different grottos and chambers release a variety of dry heat, steam and mists into the air with aromatherapy filled vapors. Relax on a heated ceramic lounge and allow the pressures of life to rinse away.

Tennis, basketball, and shuffleboard courts are available, as are a jogging track and ping-pong tables. A fully-equipped gym that features resistance and cardio equipment as well as regular fitness classes.

Nighttime Entertainment. Nightlife onboard the Statendam is elegant and plentiful. There are intimate, cabaret-style shows staged in the theater with professional performers. Mix is an innovative meeting place featuring three specialty venues: Champagne, for mid-day mimosas or anytime celebrations; Martinis, for Grey Goose cocktails and martini flights; and Spirits & Ales for microbrews, single malts and sports updates. Music and dancing in the various bars and lounges, a casino offering a variety of games when the ship is at sea. First-run movies are also shown in a theater setting.
