12 Night Mediterranean CME Cruise

MS Westerdam has just received extensive enhancements as part of a $300 million brand initiative. New bar, entertainment and dining venues, plus completely reimagined suites all debuted late April 2017, just as Westerdam embarked on her 2017 Europe season. The suite life on board Westerdam has also been enhanced as of late April 2017, with the addition of new furniture, carpeting and wall coverings. Suite bathrooms include designer glass tile and a thoroughly refreshed vanity. Electronic upgrades will include a USB outlet on the headboard, bedside LED reading lights and upgraded electrical outlets.


Step into a private haven characterized by light, space and elegance. Our interior designer, guided by guest feedback, was given the freedom to completely re-imagine staterooms aboard. The result: welcome modern touches such as bedside USB ports and frameless shower glass doors, as well as luxe appointments like customized wooden cabinetry.

All staterooms include:


Nights aboard Holland America Line cruise ships are filled with an abundance of entertainment options, specially curated for each cruise. From live music to the Main Stage Show Lounge, Westerdam guests will enjoy dazzling entertainment options from their very first night on board. As part of the updates coming late April 2017, two new music venues will be added: Lincoln Center Stage, featuring world-class musicians performing chamber music, and Billboard Onboard, rocking the house with 50 years of chart-topping hits. These venues will join the already popular B.B. King’s Blues Club, which brings the best of Memphis blues to sea, and completes our new “Music Walk” experience on board.

Holland America Line offers a delicious variety of culinary offerings, from fine dining to a casual lunch by the pool, to 24-hour In-Room Dining. As part of the April 2017 updates, the Lido Buffet will transform into Lido Market, a marketplace with themed stations offering a select array of delicious options from grab and go to classic comfort food and freshly made salads to dishes from around the globe.

Enjoy an elegant breakfast, leisurely lunch or unforgettable five-course dinner in the main Dining Room, with everything from classic favorites to vegetarian choices as well as regionally inspired cuisine and signature dishes from our international Culinary Council.

Refined and luxurious, the Pinnacle Grill* represents the height of exceptional dining on board, with dishes inspired by America’s Pacific Northwest, including delicious seafood and responsibly raised beef. Canaletto* offers authentic Italian cuisine whose menu celebrates spartire (Italian for “sharing”).

And, when it’s time for something casual by the pool, there’s nothing like Dive-In, featuring gourmet burgers and hot dogs, as well as grilled chicken breast sandwiches and the vegetarian-friendly portabella mushroom stack.
