OTHER INFORMATION

A mid-sized Holland America Line vessel, the Oosterdam cruise ship is an excellent ‘all-rounder’, offering everything you would expect from a ship in this size category. From fine dining to relaxing day spas, a holiday on board the Oosterdam will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

The ship underwent a refurbishment in 2009, bringing her up to speed with Holland America’s ‘Signature of Excellence’ campaign. A new bar was added, as well as two new eateries, a library, a movie room, enrichment facilities and 34 new cabins.

Inside Oosterdam
The interior décor on board Oosterdam is there to be admired. The designers have chosen bold, bright colours such as red, orange and gold, creating a feeling of luxury and decadence. The public areas are light and spacious, but thanks to the attentive service, the atmosphere on board is warm and intimate.

Oosterdam specs
The ship is 936 feet long and has 11 passenger decks. Her maximum capacity is 1,918 passengers, and maximum cruise speed is 24 knots. She set out for her maiden voyage from Rotterdam in 2003.

Oosterdam restaurants and bars
Master Chef Rudi Sodamin ensures the food on Oosterdam is delicious, innovative and fresh. A little spice here, a little sweetness there, the menus across the ship’s four restaurants will delight your taste buds.

Between the ship’s main dining room, the buffet and the specialty dining spaces, you will find all of your favourite classic dishes on board, as well as an impressive range of vegetarian options. You may choose to dine at specific seating times (5.45pm and 8pm in the Vista Dining Room), or make the most of ‘As You Wish’, Oosterdam’s flexible food service arrangement.

The Oosterdam bars are all warm and welcoming, especially the three-deck Vista lounge, with its plush red and gold interiors. Alternatively, the Piano Bar always draws a good crowd, thanks to the exceptional pianists, while the Northern Lights Disco is perfect for letting loose on the dance floor.

Things to do: Activities and entertainment on board Oosterdam
After a holiday on board the Oosterdam cruise ship you could come home a culinary genius, thanks to ship’s Culinary Arts Centre. In partnership with Food & Wine Magazine, this Centre offers a range of culinary classes, from cake decorating to garnishing. 

If cooking isn’t your thing, then you might want to focus on your computer skills instead. Microsoft offers a Digital Workshop, the perfect chance to learn some tips and tricks from technology experts. There are seminars on photo editing, blogging and everything in between.

In addition to these two flagship enrichment programmes, guests can also entertain themselves with art auctions, language classes, sporting pursuits, trivia games and more.

Oosterdam itineraries and shore excursions
The Oosterdam’s schedule takes her all around the world; you could find her anywhere from Alaska to the Panama Canal. The excursions are therefore different in each location. One thing they do all have in common is their wonderful variety; no matter where the destination, the excursions have been carefully selected to suit a range of ages and interests.

Example shore excursions include whale watching in Vancouver, ziplining in the Caribbean and shopping in Seville.

Cabins on board the Oosterdam cruise ship

Whether you go for stateroom or suite, the Oosterdam rooms are all clean and comfortable and feature basic amenities such as televisions, DVD players, programmable safes, minibars and hair dryers. You will also be guaranteed a good night’s sleep in a ‘Euro-top’ bed.

The Oosterdam’s interior cabins, of which there are 154, are a great affordable option, including all the features mentioned above, and generously measuring between 170 and 200 square feet. The 165 outside cabins are of a similar size (185 feet).

Space is the main reason to choose a suite, as these range from 398 to 700 square feet (or 1000 square feet if you go for the Penthouse). It is important to note the suites do not come with butler service, however guests will have access to the exclusive Neptune Lounge.

Entertainment

Entertainment on Oosterdam cruise ship

Oosterdam by day

The ship’s two dedicated enrichment areas, the Digital Workshop and the Culinary Arts Centre, are two of the best daytime entertainment options. More relaxed activities include watching a movie in the cosy cinema (free popcorn provided), enjoying a leisurely game of Ping Pong or trying your luck in an organised casino tournament.

Oosterdam pools, gyms and spas

Both of the Oosterdam’s pool areas are worth a visit; the largest one is located on the Lido Deck and features three whirlpools and caters for families, while the other is in an adults-only section of the ship.

The fitness centre is a good place to let off some steam – either use some of the gym’s equipment, such as treadmills and bikes, or join a group fitness class. Alternatively the basketball and volleyball courts are good spots to get the body moving.

Oosterdam nightlife

Come night fall the Oosterdam really comes to life, with guests swapping swimsuits and spa treatments for fine dining, live music and dancing.

The Vista Lounge plays host to excellent shows and live performances. While the performances vary throughout the year (and of course by location), most sailings will include a show by Stiletto Entertainment, a Holland America Line production group. There is also usually a comedy night, as well as magic shows.

Other great Oosterdam bars include the Northern Lights Disco - the best spot on ship to bust out your dancing moves - and the Piano Bar.

Oosterdam for families

The Oosterdam cruise ship is a family-friendly vessel, with several designated youth areas. Teenagers are bound to love The Loft, a teen club, while younger children will have a ball at Club HAL. There are organised youth programmes for three age groups (kids, tweens and teens), but parents may choose to find their own family friendly fun on board.

Families can’t go past the pool area for a great day out, while the video arcade is open to both kids and adults. Be sure to keep an eye on the movie schedule for family-friendly flicks, or make the most of your in-room DVD player for rainy day entertainment.

Mum and dad also have the option of enjoying a relaxing night out sans the kids, thanks to nighttime group babysitting. On some sailings private in-cabin babysitting may also be available.

This reference number is confirmation we have received your enquiry and we will come back to you shortly with the details of your booking please be aware, this is not a confirmation and is only a summary of your booking request. We will hold the cabin in your name for up to 5 days as controlled by the cruise line themselves. On some cruises, the payment may be required on the day of booking or within 1-5 days of making the booking as controlled by the cruise line.

Once we have held a cabin, we will contact you via phone or email, to advise of availability and confirm the price and details. A booking is confirmed when you have been received an email confirmation notice and should you wish to proceed, we will provide you with our payment options to make your deposit payment (or full payment if the cruise is within 90 days). Your payment then becomes subject to the cancellation policy of the cruise line and Cruise Republic. These are stated in the terms and conditions. When your booking has been confirmed with a deposit payment we will send you your cruise booking number with the cruise line. Once you receive your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date without incurring a penalty. If you are booking via phone, please first make sure you have read the terms and conditions. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the customer to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure

In booking on/via this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Cruise Ship company/operator.

Amendments

Once you have paid a deposit against your cruise, any changes made to the booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 plus any applicable fees set you by the cruise line. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy. All amendments are required to be sent in writing by the lead passenger in the booking. Fare amendments are subject to change until confirmed and paid. Any Name Changes must be completed a minimum 72 hours prior to departure

Transfer to a new cruise/fare

From time to time cruise lines may advertise lower promotional cruise fares; these fares are not always available to existing bookings, however Cruise Republic will endeavour to accommodate any request to change to the lower fare. Please note this request is at the discretion of the cruise lines so is not always possible. New promotional fares may affect your current booking, resulting in reduced on-board credit.

If we are able to transfer you at the lower promotional fare a fee of $100 will be applied to your booking. Once final payment has been made for your cruise we are unable to lower the fare.

If you choose to transfer your cruise deposit to an alternative cruise departure this will also incur a fee of $100.

Cancellations

Once a deposit is made towards your cruise holiday it is deemed that you have accepted our terms and conditions, so are subject to any cancellation fees. Bookings cancelled after the deposit is paid, will incur a cancellation fee of $200 per cabin plus any additional cancellation fees set out by the cruise line. There are no cool down periods. Please see the Cruise Company's terms and conditions for cancellation and amendment policy. All cancellations are required to be sent in writing by the lead passenger in the booking. Due to the issuing of refunds via Cheque by the cruiselines, refunds can take 4-6 weeks to reach us should you be entitled to any refund.

Payments

Payments towards your cruise holiday made by credit cards are subject to a transaction fee of 1.5% for Visa and Mastercard payments and 0.5% for Debit Cards. We also accept PayPal with a 1% transaction fee and AMEX which incur a 2.8% credit card fee. Payments made by domestic bank deposit do not incur any transaction fees nor do payments made using the BPAY payment system. Please be aware payments made via bank deposit or BPAY within 24 hours of your booking expiring will require a legitimate receipt/screen shot of payment emailed through.

Flights and Hotels

Flights and Accommodation cancellation fees and amendment fees will apply as set out by the airlines and hotels. An additional $50 per person cancellation fee applies to all hotel cancellations and flight cancellations. All fly/cruise packages are based on the best available flight and hotel at time of pricing and while we may not be able to get the exact airline or hotel we will book a similar acceptable option. Flight packages will all include a free checked baggage allowance and meals.

Onboard Credits

On selected departures we will offer you onboard credits & these may not be combinable with all cabin categories and promotions. We will send you through a confirmation which will confirm if the onboard credit is available against your booking. Making changes to your reservation could result in any onboard credits being removed. Once you have embarked the ship, the onboard credit will be applied to your onboard account to use towards any onboard purchases. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time.

'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Inside, Outside, Balcony) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated at the cruise lines discretion and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, the cruise line may (at their discretion) upgrade your stateroom to a higher classed category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category you decide to book at the time of the cruise including obstructed view cabins.
If travelling with Family and Friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you not to book on a Guarantee.
We cannot guarantee your cabins will be assigned near one another, on the same deck, same side or forward/aft on the ship nor accept any requests.

Complimentary Upgrades

Depending on any last minute availability the cruise lines will automatically upgrade cabins to higher categories. The upgrades can place you towards the front of the ship, midships or at the back of the ship and not necessarily on a higher deck level (i.e.: Insides Deck 10 may be upgraded to Ocean view Deck 5). As the cruise lines cannot upgrade every booking, you should book a category in which you are happy to sail. Once the upgrade has been assigned, should you dislike the cabin location we are unable to accept any changes or requests and cannot be reversed.
If travelling with family and friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you to decline the upgrades. The cruise line do not guarantee all of the cabins will be upgraded, or that they will be upgraded near one another.

Future Cruise Credits

While we are happy to apply your Future Cruise Credits from the cruiselines to your booking with us, this may affect your online discounted pricing. We will still do our best to provide competitive pricing based on the discount we can offer on the new cruise fare once the future cruise credits have been applied to your booking. Please note if Future Cruise Credits are applied after your deposit has been paid may affect your final balance.

Hotel Service Charge

Our crew works very hard to make sure that every aspect of your cruise meets the highest standards. This includes those crew members who service you directly, such as dining room wait staff and the stewards who service your stateroom each day. There are also many others who support their efforts whom you may never meet, such as galley and laundry staff. To ensure that the efforts of all of our crew members are recognized and rewarded, a daily Hotel Service charge is automatically added to each guest’s shipboard account. The Hotel Service Charge is USD$12.50 per person per day for all cabin categories except Suite passengers where their gratuities are USD $13.50 per person per day. If your service exceeds or fails to meet your expectations, you are free to adjust this amount at the end of the cruise. The Hotel Service Charge is paid entirely to Holland America Line crew members and represents an important part of their compensation. A 15% service charge is automatically added to bar charges and dining room wine purchases.

Guests under 21

Guests under 21 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or chaperone that is at least 21 years old; one adult chaperone is required for every five people under the age of 21.

Please note that Medicare and many health insurance plans DO NOT cover the cost of medical care at sea, in foreign countries, or for air evacuation. For this reason guests are encouraged to obtain travel medical insurance prior to travel.
