Oosterdam

September 2014 - Oosterdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Great Weather Helped a Lot

We were prepared for the rain that is typical on this itinerary, especially late in the year, but we got very lucky and had no rain at all!  The ports were nice, although these towns have really become tourist destinations, with lots of t-shirt shops and jewelry stores.  We focused on the outdoors experiences and were very happy with them.  The glaciers, forests, wildlife and scenery were just outstanding.  I took many hundreds of photos.  The Oosterdam was nice, but not exceptional.  We did like the slightly smaller size ship, and they catered to the scenic nature of the cruise with frequent opening of optional decks for viewing opportunities.  We saw whales, dolphins, bears, eagles, otters, seals, and salmon ;-).

CBL's Tips

Juneau, Alaska - Mendenhall Glacier. Take the one that stays for 2 hrs. Start out by walking to the waterfall.
Skagway, Alaska - Take the White Pass train up to the pass and back down. Sit in the car by the engine, as you will then be the last car on the way down with nothing behind you.
Oosterdam Oosterdam - We ordered room service breakfast several times. The food was hot, served on time, and we avoided the morning rush.
