7 Night Alaska Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 17, 2014
Ship: Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1830
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Very bad room. I ordered the advertised window room. Was offered unobstructed for $160.00 more. I agreed. When I saw my room, it was on the walking desk. People walking by. Look up to see the life boats. On the left side a pillar. You could see the ocean, if you looked across 10+ feet of deck. My wife closed the curtains for the trip. We might as well have been on the inside. Then to make things worse, at 5:30 in the morning they started talking, moving chairs and cleaning the deck.    Not the agents fault. HAL advertises this as "unobstructed.

Ship Tip

For those who like a drink before dinner, happy hour is nice. Buy 1, get 1 for $1.00. Nice to have a Catholic priest on board.

If you've been to Canada, save your time. The ship does not dock near downtown.
