7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 14, 2016
Ship: Nieuw Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 5109
Traveled As: Couple

Loved the cruise but would have liked to have more time at each port.  The cruise itself was wonderful.  Staff were very accommodating and the food was plentiful.  And the alcoholic beverages were reasonably priced.  I just would have preferred to have more time at each port.  Not enough time is given to explore each port town as I would have liked.  But overall we had a very good time and would do it again.

Room small but that was expected. So the room was satisfactory and adequately served our needs.

Ship Tip

Since the cabins are relatively small, get a room with a deck so you have the feeling of a slightly bigger living space.
