The $400m ship has a gross tonnage of 82,000 tons, measures 290 m long and has a carrying capacity of 3,200, including 2,400 passengers and 800 crew). The Westerdam follows recent trends in cruise ship design, with 85 percent of its rooms offering outside views. The ship is part of the 13-ship Vista Class category. Circle 57 on Reader Service Card
