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.

The following ships share the same class as this ship. This means the basic design and layout of the ship is the same. For the most part the cabins will be identical among these ships, but may be decorated differently.
2002 - Zuiderdam
2003 - Oosterdam
2004 - Westerdam
2006 - Noordam

There are 28 special needs cabins on this ship. These cabins have been modified for accessibility purposes.

OOSTERDAM is the second ship in the Vista Class of 5 ships. Officially christened in 2003 by Her Dutch Royal Highness, Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the ms Oosterdam is the second in our series of Vista-class ships. As such she embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system that maximizes maneuverability.

During April 2016 drydock 18 balcony cabins and 9 inside cabins were added to the Observation Deck.

Here are some tips that you should keep in mind when looking for cabins on this deck. There may be other issues that we haven't noted, and if you are aware of any issues we have not listed, please contact us and let us know so that we can add it to the list.

Deck: 5 Verandah
* The balconies of cabins below on deck 4 extend out about 18 inches, slightly obstructing the view when looking straight down at the water
* Indented cabins (cabins where the deck is not as wide) have obstructed views when looking side to side along the ship. The closer you are to where the deck first indents the greater perception of obstruction you will have. One benefit of these cabins is there is more shelter from wind and rain.
* Indented balconies on this deck are 4.5 feet deep and not the standard 5.5 feet deep.
* Balconies that face aft of ship tend to be warmer than other balconies during cold weather crusing.
* Save money and book a forward or aft cabin in the same category you are looking for. They are the same size and offer the same features as more expensive midship cabins.
* The cabins on this deck are above and below decks with only cabins on them. This means that they tend to have less noise issues from public areas on the ship.
