Cruise Critics Meet N Greet Party and Other Cruise Pictures from the Oosterdam

This cruise review starts before the cruise begins with a pre-cruise party by a number of friends who meet regularly in the Cruise Critics forums and message boards.

After spending so much time in the cruise critics forums, everybody felt like they were old friends meeting for the first time. It was great. Every time there was a shore excursion or some other activities there were always at least another few couples doing the same thing. It made for a whole lot of fun.

So without further ado, here are a bunch of pictures of the activities, friends, and nonsense that we experienced aboard HAL's Oosterdam cruise to the Mexican Riviera with our cruise critic friends.

Kathy really likes this little guy... I think it is an aardvark or something. One of those folded towel animals we keep finding on our cruises.

Dining in the ships dining room with our friends. Great wait staff too.

Oosterdam deck photos. That's Kathy down there unsuspecting I am taking her photo.

Nothing quite as relaxing as a hot tub full of bubbles as the ship gently sways back and fro.
 
Kathy showing off her bathing suit perhaps.

Gotta love the Hot tubs - we both get in this time. Ahh yes. This is the life. Nothing like a cruise to make you forget all those problems. Formal night photos on the Oosterdam cruise to the Mexican Riviera Tuxes and formal gowns are the rule.

Kathy and nancy ham it up in the dinning room. Nancy and Tom. A really great couple we ate with each evening at late sitting dinner. Joan and Walter. Another great couple. we all had a blast every night at dinner.

Food Pictures! Surf & Surf :) It tasted every bit as good as it looked too! Mabel & Kathy We really liked Mabel. Kathy and Bill. Kathy really likes Bill a lot. And Bill likes Kathy too. Kathy the Chef! So Bill is not the only one who can act goofy.
Kathy has a mango Mojito.

Claudis .. It's a Mango
Mojito .. just for you :)

She appears to like it. We will give it a good review! Isn't Bill Silly - give him a hat or any other toy and he just might get a bit goofy. Dinner in the main dinning room.

Judging by how rare this meat looks I would say it was something Kathy ordered. She likes it bloody. More pictures of the wait staff and the passengers dancing and partying.  That is a light stick Kahty has.   Everyone got one of those light sticks that you break and they make light. Odd but fun I suppose.
pictures Oosterdam dinning room waiters dancing
Everybody seems to be having so much fun. The traditional waiters dance on the last night at dinner. Maybe he is right
I had tooo much fun
