The staff and crew were excellent. They were very helpful in answering and providing services. The girls running the kids' HAL Club were exceptional.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Had a different dinner menu selection each of the 14 days along with some standard choices. The large majority were excellent depending on your taste. Lots of choice using salmon each day. I believe it was Sockeye salmon. As we did not get the traditional sit down, but dine as you wish, the dining times worked well.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Good. Not sure if the lead male singer got a cold or something or the sound system was not working on several shows. The comedians were good.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The girls running the kids' HAL Club were exceptional. Several times we heard from various parents their kids did not want to leave the Club and or wanted to go to the Club as soon as it opened. It was open during non-sea days when visiting the towns.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an outside room on Deck 1 at the back for three. You do hear the hum of the motor. Not loud, but there.

Saw the zoo and drove around the towns.

Played on the beach, visit shops, and saw fisherman's catch. Did not catch shuttle to town, just to one to the spit's shops.

It rained lightly off and on. Mostly shop again and used the library's internet.

The town is a quaint little town without the commercialism. The old cannery had pictures and items showing how it ran.

It lightly rained off and on. We mostly shopped and walked to the fish hatchery and totem pole museum.

Even though it was a Sunday, there were many stores open that locals would need with a few gift type shops. Not a town big on commercialism. Library opened from 1 to 5 for internet.
5 out of 5
A nice compact site. Shops, gallerys, historical sites, touch sea life, hatchery, and National Park all within 30 minute walk if one went from one end to the other. Nice art work.
Don't Miss: For kids who like dinos, look up toward the ceiling inside the children's section in the library.
5 out of 5
A very clean city with lots of flowers. To much there for the 10 hours at port.

Pros: All the services, cabin stewards, dinning waiters, front desk, and the food.

Cons: The transmission from agent to cruise line about having beds together and choosing traditional early dinner. (cabin stewards gladly put beds together and matre d' assistant booked every day at same table in the dine as you wish floor.)

Recommends Amsterdam? Yes!
