Oosterdam

June 2013 - Oosterdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

the shutdown

We must begin by stating that we are not new to cruising having used Royal Caribbean and Carnival in the past. This was our first experience with Holland and also Alaskan cruise. You not have a bad cruise to this destination as the environment is beautiful. Holland American seemed to do many things right, like as a smooth embarkation and debarkation process. The food was lack lusture and the biggest issues was the staff approach to portions. This was further complicated by the language barrier which is present with most boats. They could improve by asking how much you want and changing servers as they appeared to be in different to many quest request staterooms were fine. The activities were par for most boats but geared towards an older crowd and were mid fifties. This is not a boat kids limited things for them to do. The boat seemed to close down about 11:30pm daily ad I felt cheated as they started to prepare for next weeks quest during day five. We couldn't find a drink on the final night of the cruise and that is a shame. We felt like they were saying good bye to soon. All together my wife and I would cruise Holland American again if the price right but they would have stiff competition if carnival offered the same price.

cruiselikeyou's Tips

Oosterdam Oosterdam - Make your way around the first day. Get ready early for Tracy Arm by staking out a place other than the observation deck. Casino staff is friendly servers are not but can be helpful. Excursions are ok if you book away from the boat we used Harv and Marv whale watching in Junuea.
