Westerdam

July 2015 - 7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip) Cruise on Westerdam

Westerdam cruise

I picked Holland-America line because they have a reputation of being the more elegant of the cruise ships. The service was extremely good, the food to die for, the venue was, indeed, very elegant. We had a cabin with a veranda and that was a good choice. 

We had some reservations about the excursions, especially in Juneau. It cost $65 if you buy a bus tour to Mendenhall Glacier and a ticket on the tramway to Mount Robert- if you go out on the dock the same is $10 for the tour to the Glacier and $10 for the tramway.

Another thing that they didn't tell you is the hidden charges of close to $12/per day, per person for "housekeeping", that is making your bed, clean the bathroom aso. I don't know what other cruise liners do, but it would have been better being upfront about this '"xtra" charges.

Cruise Tips

Juneau, Alaska

Skip Tramway, expensive for what you experience. Remember that there are 5 cruise ships, each with 1.900 passenger, that come to Juneau at the same time.

Westerdam

Find the Crow's Nest in the very front of the ship. Best place for viewing.
