The Oosterdam started sailing in 2003 . Former names: none. The Oosterdam is registered in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The Oosterdam has 1012 cabins. 67 percent of the staterooms on board have balconies.

You can expect between 2024 to 2429 passengers on a typical sailing. This means that at the higher number (usually peak and holiday sailings) Oosterdam has a space ratio of 33.9 . (A space ratio less than 33 means that you may find the ship crowded in areas. A space ratio greater than 39 means that there should be plenty of space for each passenger.) When this ship isn't sailing at capacity the space ratio can be as good as 40.7.

The Oosterdam has 817 crew members on board. There are 3 passengers for every crew member on board. There are no self serve laundromats on this cruise ship.

The ship last major refurbishment was in Apr 2016 .

There are 11 decks on this ship. The highest deck number is 11. The number of decks with passenger cabins is 7.
