This is an extremely attractive cruise ship with plenty of outdoor space including a promenade deck, a jogging track and two outdoor swimming pools. Westerdam’s interiors are equally as impressive as its exteriors, with its three-deck high atrium and eclectic décor creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
